Maybe it's just me but it looks like Urb and Jones are sharing a doob...
Great hire for OSU but it is an equally great thing for him as well. Schiano is not garnering the respect he needs to land a big time HC job. After 2 years at Ohio State he will no longer get passed up by the likes of Will Muschump and we will find another good DC.
I like the idea of Bentley, providing that we could pay him enough to satisfy his mother's furniture needs.
Random thoughts for the AM.
I'll be shocked if MSU does not beat Iowa. If Warriner is OC next year Urban must hire another offensive line coach I would think. The B1G title game loser would be in the Rose if WE were not sitting where we are. All off the players we lose are not going to be as catastrophic as it's going to look like on paper, we will still have Barrett, Samuel pushed Zeke hard for the starting RB last year and got the start against Illinois, I've gotta think he moves back to RB, plenty of defensive ends, linebackers, secondary...interior defensive line is my biggest concern along with offensive coordinator. If Ash leaves pray that Meyer hires someone else and does not leave it to Fickell. *ichigan sucks-Let CHAOS ensue!!
One thing we have going for us in regards to Stanford is that even if they win,they are playing in a conference championship against a team with 4 loses which is all you need to know about the Pac 12 this year.
I'm not even thinking of the bowl game, I just want to play Iowa and replay MSU. I wonder how many people who are complaining about the talk of Ohio State still having a chance in the playoff would bet money against Ohio State versus either team if they played in Indy this weekend.
I don't think Oklahoma is going to lose nearly as much talent as we are, that game looks pretty daunting, but the rest look manageable, Barrett will be much more prepared for the PSU crowd this time around, Wisky is,well..Wisky, they will be tough for a few quarters, and we all know that MSU is not going to beat us 2 years in a row, they mighty even be cursed now that their kicker had to go off and do his best Drew Tate impersonation (allbeit the single arm version) Iowa has not beat us since.
It's pretty shocking that Texas has won only 40 games since the 2010 season, 2016 will probably decide Strong's fate, I think he needs 8 wins next year to keep his job.
Check out Earle's weekly thread. Everybody is being too kind to one another and it can be taken as passive aggresive.
I don't even know what that means, there are people who have enough free time to express negative attitude by fake friendliness on a sports message board? Why would someone be intimidated by helmet stickers? We are just people sitting behind computers/phones.
Looks more like a nightgown than a jersey.
Looks like Adolphus got snubbed, that's too bad.
I hope this is not considered a solution and the plan for next year, this is what happens to ttun's defense when they can't run the ball. I'm guessing they won't be able to keep Warriner up in the box next year with a green offensive line. Hopefully they hire a proven offensive coordinator and move Ed back to the line allowing him to retain his "Co" title and salary (see Fickell) or maybe hire another line coach if Meyer really thinks Ed can be a good O.C. I don't really see Beck in this picture but Urban has not fired anyone yet.
This made me sick because it's so spot on.

This should be all the inspiration anyone needs.
This one was especially tough, this might be the most talented team ever at OSU coached by one of the top 3 head coaches in the country and they are not even going to win the conference. They should have mowed through this schedule.
I'm really hoping PSU can somehow beat Sparty, as much as I dislike michigan, the Cooper years are behind me, the team that I hate, the team that brings bile up is Sparty. I'm tired of handing them the B1G on a platter, to lose to Sparty is to be outcoached and that stings.
I remember that time well, thank God Fickell's defense got shelved and Urban hired Chris Ash. We need a offensive coordinator hire that has that same kind of impact and we are all set.
Apple is a beast? Apple needs to spend more time in the weight room, more time in the film room and more time on tackling fundamentals. I'm not hating on the kid but he is far from an NFL corner, the potential is there but he needs more coaching and experience. Conley is more NFL ready IMO.
I hope Urban can man up and admit that he didn't make the right decision promoting Ed Warriner. Ed is a fabulous offensive line coach but he is a coach that likes to coach from the sidelines and the offensive line has suffered without his full time coaching.Beck is only in the pressbox because Warriner needs to be able to coach the line. Much like Fickell/Withers was a disaster on defense, Meyer was lucky in that James Madison took Withers off our hands willingly and Fickell can always conveniently be called the co-defensive coordinator while Chris Ash calls the plays running his scheme. With Beck and Warriner someone is going to have to be demoted or fired. When Herman left I was really hoping Doug Meachum would be considered. Now I really, really wish Doug Meachum would be considered. Here is some info on Doug. Personally I have a feeling that Warriner/Beck will be back next year to everyone's chagrin. Meyer really has not done a good job this year from the get go.
