I'm curious to see what Urban does with play calling now. If Warinner stays on the field, I have no problem with Beck calling plays from up in the booth. There's a reason Urban hired Beck to begin with. If Warinner goes upstairs and Beck comes downstairs then I just hope the O line does okay with Warinners absence on the field since that's where he's been since Urban took over.

While the choosing of a QB is one thing, coaching and play calling is another. Interesting that there hasn't been much mentioned in regards to the new guy Tim Beck and how he and Ed Warinner are working together during the game. I know Tim is upstairs where Herman once sat and Ed is still down on the field, but what is the process for how the play calling is handled? It definitely seems different from the Herman days.

I can only imagine the roller coaster of emotions for Meyer in 2011 dealing with his ailing father who passed away and getting back into coaching to take on an enormous role at OSU. Meyer seems to calm and content with everything just in the way he handles interviews and his demeanor on the sidelines. The only 2 times I've ever seen Meyer so fired up on the sidelines with us was 2012 at Michigan State (he was nailing the ref for a bad call) and in the Sugar Bowl against Bama when he threw his headset across the dome. 

Meyer is a changed man since his days in the pit of hell called "The Swamp" in Gainesville.

Ed being Co OC with Tom allowed him the last 3 yrs to develop and learn a system that he, Tom, and Urban put together. So now its time Beck comes in and takes over the coaching of our QBs but also learns the offensive system and pumps new ideas and what not into an already high octane offense. I am assuming that Ed will now be in the booth and calling the plays?? .....OR will Beck be in the booth while Ed takes care of his line but is the primary OC anyway because he would be in charge of game planning week to week and overall development of the offense but allow Beck the play calling duties? I feel like Ed does a heck of a job on the sideline and he seems to really enjoy it. Every time I see Ed on TV.....he's extremely involved in every facet of the game whether we're on offense or defense it seems like.

I only say this because instead of Ed and Toms roles flipping......Ed is remaining the line coach while Beck takes over Tom's former QB coaching vacancy (while still maintaining co OC status.) Luke Fickell is listed as the DC but Chris Ash is the Co DC but in the booth...so makes you wonder.
