Herman's been coaching since 98.  Levine (the guy Houston fired) was making over $900 k.  Herman is making $550.  Add that all up, and throw in his background in TX...it's time.

He started coaching in '98.  I think it's time to make that first move, or he may be stuck being an OC forever.  I've never seen nor heard of an interview with Herman to see what his goals are.  He may not want the headache of being a HC...who knows? 

He was born in Ohio, but raised in California, just north of LA.  A score of small places to get the taste of what it takes.

3rd string long snapper?  So about two steps up the credibility ladder than you, eh?  That's why I asked if anyone else had heard anything instead of proclaiming your hero being canned.

If you ever got involved in the Big 33 during the PA-OH clashes, you might feel a little different.  Especially when JoePa pulled that crap with Herby, the competition (Pryor?) for the border players (Dustin Fox, too) made things pretty intense there for a while.  Add the 2005 game & the 'Urine Crappy Valley' animosity, and it was pretty bad.  If Franklin gets things fired up again, *MOD EDIT*  will again claim to be our big rivals.

I think RichRod's loss last night was big.  We lost to VA T, and dropped 14 spots.  Oregon lost to AZ and only dropped 10.  Both the Hokies & Wildcats were unranked preseason & early...USC hasn't been all that so far, and their win over AZ last night brings things back into perspective a bit more.  I think we'll see some corrections coming into play now...

I don't think he's READY to be a HC yet, but that won't stop people from asking.  He's still dealing with the stress of Big Game decisions, and that would be the hold up, I'd think.  He may do OK at Texas State, or UTEP, or a small, low expectation program.  But he's proven he's not ready for the big time as an OC, let alone as a HC.

I'm a believer in "...on any given Saturday... and look at BGSU & VA Tech as examples.  I THINK we will kick Cinci's butt over their shoulder blades...How bad, or even if the shoe is on the other foot will depend on how quickly either team comes out of the gate.  Especially with young teams, that quick start and the confidence that builds with a quick start goes a long way.  I think we win big, but ...

I'm feeling worse than before, but not really hit the 'worried' stage yet.  We don't get to see/know every detail, and some of holding BM back publicly might be to throw a curve ball at upcoming D-Coordinators...We only have a few more weeks to speculate.

Comment 08 Aug 2014

VA Tech may be a little higher ranked, but you're right...look at all the Ohio boys who are going to want to make a showing...

Remember Ryan Brewer of outback bowl fame?

Welcome aboard; and good luck.  One thing you'll know for sure, what your fellow Buckeye-lovers think of your opinions in articles.  You can bet no one will be shy in expressing their view of what is right or wrong in tOSU territory. 

Comment 14 Jul 2014

With the stable of running  backs available, and BM's statements about the punishment, (& his history of injuries) we have to believe the called runs will be decreased.  I love that he has that ability.  But I'd love more if he only used it when there were no other options, and then minimized the hits he takes...I prefer a QB who CAN run Vs a running QB.

Comment 11 Jul 2014

I really don't have a preference, as Saturday's are all CFB for me anyways.  I do dislike away night games for our team, band, & fans as some A-hole drunks, such as PeeA$$U, make the experience worse.

Comment 19 Jun 2014

I'm not much of a Delany fan, and don't care for the direction he's moved the conference nor the new additions.  Support leaving the B1G?  HEKK yeah...joining the SoEverybodyCheats?  Ehhhh...Being the lead in changing the world of CFB?  HEKK yes again.

The NCAA blew their chance to be relevant in the future by not stepping up and really taking charge when all this reshuffling began, and then revamping the rule books so they would make sense.  They'll soon be on the scrap heap of history, IMHO, and rightfully so.
