In Rich Rods last 2 years he had the same AD as Hoke, yet his record improved every year. Hoke's record got worse every year.
I hate to say anything in SCUM fans defense but, after Hoke, anyone could be considered somewhat of a savior.
I too thought it was a poorly officiated game and Ted Valentine wasn't even there.
Merriam Webster: to show in an improper or selfish way that you are happy with your own success or another person's failure.
The Free Dictionary: To feel or express great, often malicious, pleasure or self-satisfaction.
Dictionary.com: to look at or think about with great or excessive, often smug or malicious, satisfaction.
Improper, selfish, malicious, smug. Pick your definition and tell me this is the way Urban wants his program to be defined.
By the way, I've been a fan probably longer than you've been alive. I'm not a prude or an old fogie but class is still important to me.
I, too, am thrilled Mike stuck with his OSU commitment. Less than thrilled about some posters gloating. That's not who we are.
You're obviously a Braxton fan (I am not} because there is not one stat that would back up anything you said.
Don't give up do you. Aside from your tunnel vision, do you have any actual facts to back up your view.
Where do you get this stuff? Check the stats. The only game Zeke got more than 20 carries was Oregon. If you figure his yds per carry for the last 3 games against the rest of the season it's not even close.
J T has a huge advantage? C'mon. . I've been a HUGE J T fan all year and would have bet anyone that he would be the starter next year. But even Saban said Cardale adds another dimension to the OSU offense. I don't think it was a coincidence Zeke had by far his best 3 games against 3 of the 4 best defenses we saw all year. You could say it was the improved play of the offensive line but they didn't all of a sudden improve that much in the 13th game. The QB job is up for grabs next year and I'm now leaning toward Cardale's chances.
Well deserved. Add to that how much fun he was/is to watch. "The Shrug" was only the cherry on top.
"I'm not quite sure what the SEC bias is. Hard-pressed not to say it's not the best league top to bottom."
Hard to believe there are 135 posts on this and nobody noticed that statement is a double negative. Meyer may have misstated it but what it actually means is the opposite of what you're thinking.
I agree. The Harris visit had already been set up when Weber told Meyer he was in. Cancelling the Harris visit would have been indicating Weber committed. I think Meyer knew that Harris was going to wait, so he made the visit and just didn't put on the full court press.
I'm with ya. I know it's only hyperbole but I think it serves to degrade our team in comparison to Bama. If we play anywhere close to that in all 3 phases we'll be playing on January 12.
It was reported somewhere that he could have gotten more money when he was hired but he chose instead to have a higher budget to lure good assistants.
OK, you get to be the one to tell Bosa, Bennett, Zeke, Cardale etc. we don't want them to embarrass us.
If they'd have gotten the ball back with a couple minutes left I think they would have won. But if ifs and buts were candy and nuts........
"The only thing truly contemptible about him was that there was nothing truly contemptible about him."
He does seem like a decent guy. I was a little irritated with him calling us "Ohio" but I guess we wouldn't use the word ##ichigan, so I can't hold it against him too much.
I don't think there is any chance Hoke is back next year. Waiting til January to fire him will only make Wishigan look worse.
Not seeing the advantage having their starting field position inside the 25.
inside the 25: 5 TDs in 29 tries.
at the 25: 4TDs in 32 tries.
Who was the other 200 yd rusher?
I'd like to see a list of assistant coaches salaries. I remember it being reported that Urban left some money on the table to be able to attract big time assts. That's laughable. He shouldn't have to do that. It's embarrassing. Meyer's one of the two best, if not THE best, coaches in America. Ohio State has the resources to pay top dollar. Probably only Texas and Alabama are in the same discussion. Dantonio? Strong? Sumlin? ...Embarrassing. Gene Smith should donate his pay instead of Meyer having to. (sorry about the bold type)
Young man's got some serious guns already.
I coached a baseball team that played in Canada once. The coach told me the complex was once a sad farm.. I was thinking..."crops wouldn't grow?, people died?. Later someone told me he was talking about those slabs of grass.
I think he said "damn turnovers" at halftime but "get the heck out of here" at the end. Could be wrong.
I think think the weather affected their vocal cords. Didn't affect the effort though.
