None of the staffs I looked at have a "kicking coach", and neither does the Buckeye staff. However, they all have special teams coordinators/coaches (Coach Coombs on Meyer's staff), who presumably handle those duties. IU has no ST coordinator listed on its staff.

No, it is based on Elmore Leonard's novels Pronto and Riding the Rap and his short story "Fire in the Hole". It is a great show, just below pantheon-level Breaking Bad, Sopranos, The Wire, etc.

I'm not a huge fan of "icing", especially this style of it. I just don't see what good can come of it. If the guy makes it, he knows exactly what to do and all he has to do is replicate it a minute later. If he misses, he get's a chance to correct the error he made.

The staff has said that the offense is unprepared for any defense other than a 4-3?? Welp, my expectations -- along with my jaw -- just dropped again. I'm not a FB coach and don't know as much about schemes, etc. as many of the people on this board, but isn't it kinda pathetic that the offense is only prepared for one defensive scheme?

Didn't they actually comment on the lack of loudness during the broadcast? I seem to recall the sideline reporter remarking she had a sound meter and it was only ~100dB, and that it didn't seem very loud.

I don't know any TTUN fans who would be excited about the prospect of Tressel coaching the home team in AA.

My thought exactly, Stu. I had thought the game had past Beamer by too ... until last Saturday....

he'd rank OSU like 20th after they played FAMU, as if it wasn't a last minute replacement. 

But FAMU wasn't a last-minute replacement. San Diego State was the replacement team when Vandy pulled out. Sadly, FAMU was always on the schedule. I thought we'd corrected this widely held misbelief last year.

Ordered. I began the indoctrination of my daughter -- now all of 15 weeks old -- on Saturday with her first Buckeye game. (I even have pics of her watching the game.)  These books should help further the cause. Thanks, Roy!!

The Scarlet & Grey Viper? Yeah, that is an apt comparison for last season. And it hurts. Sparty has to be Jon Snow, right? Wiscy is the Hound. And Purdue is Hodor.

That dude can turn it to 11. Most players can only get to 10 and then there's no where to go. But Nigel can go one further.

While this is admittedly a great Bert joke, I don't want to live in a world where we're not continually mocking Bert until he's coaching a JuCo squad in West Bumblef*ck, Montana.
