I know I'm in the minority here, but I really wish we could keep our current staff for a few years and try to get things to gel with them.  I also believe that maybe we're not stocked up on talent like we were previously.  I think that Tatgate hurt us more than most fans are willing to admit.  When Urban came in and recruited he went after playmakers on the offensive side of the ball and there were a few years were the talent on the defensive side of the ball didn't live up to our lofty expectations.

If we were talking about a potential starter for next season would you feel the same way?  Should we say see ya to Braxton cause he's had his four years, and we think JT could handle the reigns?  It shouldn't matter who the player is, they should all get the same opportunities.

Edit to add: I don't think that these guys were told not to come back.  I think as fans it's hard for some us to imagine why they would choose to leave and give up the chance at being a part of something so special to us.

That's where I can see the OP's point if it was OSU's choice to not renew them for the fifth year.  If those guys left on their own for whatever reason that's cool in my book, but if the program said we didn't want you back then that's another story.  Obviously no one on this board probably knows what the truth of the matter is.

I did 5 times, 02-06.  Of course that was when the game was before thanksgiving, so the mirror lake jump really upped the intensity of hate week from Thursday through the game. Great times, except for the riot in 02.  In hindsight things might have got a little out of hand then.

Woody+Earle+Tressel-Cooper=Urban 

That seems more reasonable.

Do you think that maybe there hasn't been the talent we're used to on the field?  I don't want to sound too negative, but Curtis Grant in my opinion has been a bust and Josh Perry isn't elite either.  I fear that the fallout from tatgate has hurt us more than people are willing to admit in terms of recruiting, and we are just now filling the void.

YSU keeps him in state and gives him an opportunity to step out of the spotlight to start something on his own.  I hope this doesn't happen as I feel like there is a very large portion of our fan-base that has been overly critical of the job he's done here, and I would like to see him excel here and shove it in their face.

He can't be stopped.

You're probably correct.  He would be a head coach somewhere else if he didn't have a lot of loyalty to this program.

Where is the gif of them beating the dead horse.
