If they fail on all of their premiere choices, why not look in state for a diamond in the rough.  That's what we did with Tressel.  Find someone with a strong winning record, has built up a great program and lead an intensive interview process to gain a feel to see if he can handle the pressure at the next level.  They have to have some good coaches up there at lower level programs who learned their football in Ohio.  Another example for our home state diamonds in the rough would be Larry Kehres who used to coach at Mount Union.  This would be more of a stretch than Tressel, but I think he would do fine at any level.

M Man, I understand your defense of your team and all, but sometimes you just have to face the music and say, "it's not good enough; I will not defend all of these problems and call on my home program to do better."  I know I had to do it in the Cooper years, it was awful; but I had no defense.  I worked with a TTUN fan and he owned me for 11 years and there wasn't a damn thing I could do about it.  I took my lumps, admitted OSU's problems, and hoped for a better day.  It eventually came in the form of a vest and continues today.

Michigan has a slim chance, but the key will be protecting Devin.  If the Utes can pressure him, the game will be over.  If he gets in a groove with Funchess, they have a chance to pull it off.  Don't see it happening though.

Hope he heals up.  He will have the opportunity to grow and be better with this adversity.

I have to find a way to fail all the time at my job and still keep it.  That guy is a genius...

Totally understand your point, but I have seen some of the most loving parents have children who end up in jail or worse. We do our best as parents, but there are absolutely no guarantees with our children.

The last one will be the best IMO. Younger brothers are always playing up to their older siblings and in his case, they were darn good. I watched a good bit of that ECU game and he was near flawless. Great player.

Agreed, it is much easier to adjust in 7 days than it is during the game.  My high school always scripted our first 10 plays to see how the D was defending our base plays, then adjust the plan (if necessary) from that point on.

I rewatched the game. 10 times he had good separation from Fuller, a very good corner. He'll get the drops fixed and end up being our best receiver.

2 things I really think Meyer is too enamored with.  Assistant coaches who can recruit and team speed.  Ironically, we have coaches who can get recruits in with "speed", but their coaching ability severely limits said players.  Then as we saw with Von Bell last year, these coaches somehow mess up talent evaluation.  What good does a 4.3 guy do if he is constantly out of position, or he is limited by bad play calling.  Lose the flash and hype and get back to fundamental football.  One example tackling;  I saw at least 15 "hits" last Saturday without wrapping.  This really gets to me because I watch my 1st grade son wrap all the time, anybody can do it.  That's bad coaching.

Corey Smith. It was very frustrating to watch him drop a couple of passes, including one for a TD, but it is one game. Jerry Rice struggled so much with the drops his rookie year that the 49ers wondered if they made the right pick and he turned out to be the best receiver ever. I am not saying Corey will be the next Jerry, but a new and bigger environment can be overwhelming at 1st. He played at high school and JUCO ball where the largest crowd may have been 15,000. His 1st real (not navy) game is under the lights, against good school, in front of 107,000. Lets give him a chance. He did create some separation against a very good corner, Fuller. We all know that drops are 99 percent mental.

No, we do not have the same talent. Raney and Demps both ran under 10.10 in the 100, Tebow is one of the best college football players ever, and look at Harvin. Hate to say it, but we are not as talented as those teams.

And learn how to wrap. Can't believe this fundamental that my 8 year old just learned is hard for these collegiate players. Not just Doran though

He did get beat, but he had good coverage and that ball was perfect.
