I disagree. The single biggest reason for the lack of offense was the loss of Tom Herman. Beck wasn't up to the task, not that it's entirely his fault - expecting him to come in and pick up where Herman left off is unreasonable. All season long the offense just wasn't clicking and Meyer referred to "communication issues" and it took a loss to finally remedy the situation. There's a reason Meyer made the off season move of moving Warinner to the press box and demoting a popular TE coach. And that reason is : TIm Beck.

Wouldn't trade Meyer for anyone, but he is human after all. Nobody is perfect and the pressure put on him by Buckeye Nation ( and himself ) is intense. Having said that, it shouldn't have taken him 11 games and a loss to figure out his Offensive Coordinator couldn't coordinate the offense. "The Grind" isn't a very positive rallying cry. And the QB situation could have been handled better. Claiming that the skill set of JT and Jones were the same so it didn't matter who started was a head scratcher. The coaching staff let down the players this year, IMHO.

I worked on the NCAA game for 6 1/2 years and was very disappointed it got canceled. The reason it couldn't continue with generic names  is that the conferences and schools started pulling out. Ohio State was the first school to not allow their brand to be in the game. There was a brief time before the actual cancellation that the game was still being made - without Ohio State. Dark days...

No worries. If he see better opportunities for him elsewhere, then best of luck to him. Meyer will get a excellent class. 3 stars can become all stars, 5 stars can become busts. Coaching is key, our coaches are some of the best. 

Go Bucks ! Beat the Domers !

I think part of the problem is that Ohio State is a premier team with a excellant fan base that loves to travel. Any bowl would jump at the chance to take them and it leads to OSU being matched in a game that maybe they shouldn't be in, since bowls are all about the money and not about which teams "deserve: to be there.

Yea, I'm disappointed too. No doubt the players are. This year is on the Offense coaching staff, imho. Loosing Herman was a setback they _may_ have finally recovered from - we'll see. Not sure if it's because Beck just didn't mesh or Warriner's need to be on the sideline or both, but they let down a talented team. Now they need to get over disappointment and take out the Irish. Meyer is gonna have to earn is paycheck to get his team in the proper mindset. He supposed to be master motivator, this will be a test.
