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...
So we can keep Warinner in the booth !
"tight ends coach Tim Hinton will remove to an administrative role within the program"
Just need an Offensive Coordinator that knows how to coordinate the offense. Beck _really_ needs to step up his game or it could be his last in Columbus. Warinner probably is going to need to be on sideline with a less experienced O-line. This is my biggest concern for next year.
Glad to see TG getting his head on right ! Kill the wildcat, though. Seems to me it fails more often than it produces anything good. Don't know why teams keep trying to force it.
I suppose we will end up with a nice recruiting class. There only thing that concerns me with all the early exits is depth for next year. We should be fine at WR and H-back - as long as people don't start going down in spring with broken legs and what not.
Yea, I gotta agree with Kobe on that one - he didn't ask him to run the baseline. Kinda of silly for Silk to ask for someone else to pay for his tech.
Take responsibility for your own actions.
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.
Too harsh. We hold our athletes to too high of a standard. He will be punished by the courts - why isn't that enough ? It's just a game after all...
They're back because the SEC wan't very good this year. They had a home loss in conference too. They had games where they didn't look all good. If not for a miracle 4 & 25 by Ark over Ole Miss, they would not be in playoffs.
Well, technically we are co-champs of our division. We get a trophy for that, for whatever that's worth.
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.
Bowling Green and Utah are not Ohio State...
Hate is a compliment. People only hate what is great, nobody hates Purdue.
Wonder why there is no interest in Keishaun Sims, Ohio's Mr Football. Playing tonight for the DII title.
Oregon wasn't a top 10 defense, around 89 if memory serves.
I am embarrassed to ask this but... What does nine units strong mean ?
I keep seeing it referenced and have been hoping to figure it out from context. My best guess is that it refers to the position groups, but I'm not sure so I'm going to have to break down and ask. Thanks in advance.
Wait - was that his last appearance on ESPN ? Getting booed off the stage ?
"Mark was awesome at getting Buckeye fans pissed off and thus getting ratings"
I don't know about that, I stopped watching GameDay because of him.
They _really_ need to reduce the number of timeouts. I stopped watching basketball because of all the timeouts. Also, give the team that is fouled the option of free throws or taking the ball out of bounds with a reset shot clock. All the fouling at the end of a game is ridiculous ! What other sport is is part of the game plan to commit a foul !? Committing a foul should not help the offending team...
Instead of adding another game, how bout we get rid of all these FCS schools on teams schedules and start playing some real teams ?
Maybe, remember he was second behind Thomas on depth chart. He's a great tracker and can stretch the field, but not a great blocker nor route runner.
Totally agree. When Weber gets here, he'll learn that you play for each other at OSU - not your positions coach. Who's to say the next coach won't be better ?
