Both 76 & 78 were 12 games, but were the stats updated to count the bowl games? Including the bowl games with regular season stats is relatively new...
Only ONE team tonight has a former Buckeye...and I've been a patriot my whole life...
I can't find it, so I'll ask here...any of the Youngstown crowd remember/know what position Beck played? His bios all seem to omit that little tidbit of info.
MUCH better picture. Save this one...
The wild card in all the speculation is the new OC/QB coach. After 3 years of Tom Herman, Tim Beck and his interaction with these three guys will be interesting, and Beck's preferences, though not the primary component, will impact who & how the position is played.
Though Beck IS an Ohio boy, his interactions with CUFM & OC Warinner will also be interesting to watch.
I went with Bennett, mostly because of the depth we seem to have at WR, and because of the leadership Bennett provides as well as his play. Devin Smith will be missed as well...one of his biggest improvements this year is the way he (normally) goes aggressively after the ball. IMO, that was a shortcoming before this year.
Googled this before the Sugar Bowl, & found an article where the OSU coaches claimed that Robey & Grant ran a 4.31. (As opposed to an article where Amari Cooper SAID he ran a 4.31)
woops, double entry...sorry. (but I think we shut that bastrage DOWN, and thump their butts, 48-34)
Simple...Google Amari Cooper and Doran Grant 40 times...Cooper said he clocked 4.31. OSU coaches clock Grant @ 4.31, during the same session they clocked some guy named Bradley Roby. I think we beat Bama by at least two scores.
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.
Official site says 2 for 12 yds ( http://grfx.cstv.com/schools/osu/graphics/pdf/m-footbl/2014/2014-11-29-michigan.pdf )
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.
Cool...what it means to him (or would mean to any other former player) we can only guess...but it would DEFINITELY be just friggin' AWESOME for one of us regular fans...
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.
Yep...still a lot of football before it's all said & done. No whining allowed.
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.
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?
