I could see Fickell coming back to coach if he has a good several years at Cincinnati, or a future gig. Vrabel is an interesting option as is a Chris Ash. Granted all these names are based on future production. I think Urban Meyer has raised the coaching bar so high at Ohio State the next head coach will be a coach that has had tremendous success at another program. What was the name of the head coach from North Dakota State? I think he went to Colorado... It will be a coach like that! IMO

Here is a question regarding Josh Myers:

Why all the talk of him moving to guard when he joins the Buckeyes? Is it because he isn't a good pass blocker right now and there is less demand for pass blocking at the guard position? (I know he will still pass block as a guard...) Do we think he will transition to tackle as he becomes a good pass blocker or does his frame, and athleticism, dictate he play guard at the next level(s)?

Thanks for your feedback!

My guess is this search started a while ago, hopefully this is like when Ash replaced Withers. - CTBuckeyeFAN

Urban didn't start shopping recently.  Beck has been on the way out for a while now. - TeddyBallGame

I agree! I have felt like something was going to change from the moment Urban said we would be a better passing team next (this) year! This hasn't happened all of a sudden, it has been in the works for a while!

Watching Kapernick and Gabbert play this year was not unlike watching a monkey hump a football. Not saying the QB coach was responsible, but he obviously didn't help.

Not sure anyone could coach either of them to play any better!!!

What is wrong with people? This is one of the most negative comments section I have seen in a while on 11W and it is mostly directed at a staff writer who is giving us his opinion on a recruit. I for one have no issue with him comparing Dane's competitive fire to that of Tom Brady! The current iteration of our basketball Bucks could use a couple more players with the fire and passion of Tom Brady. 

I don't comment a lot and I don't like to complain to much about coaches or players, especially, players since they are 18-21 year olds, but the one thing that drives me insane when watching them play is how much they turn the ball over. It's not just that they are prone to turnovers, its how the turnovers happen... it seems to be a carelessness with the ball! Watching the game last night I was as nervous as heck watching them try and get the ball up the court vs a full-court press. They also do not make crisp passes when in their half-court sets. Hopefully they can continue to work on that and get better and I trust that they will.

Go Buckeyes and in Matta I, still, trust!

At the end of the day, I still look at it like we have a chance to make the playoffs

I am admittedly not a clowns Browns fan, but I do not have an issue with his comment. I want the players on my team to show up every game and play like they still have a chance at the playoffs. Yes, the browns are awful and have no realistic shot at the playoffs but I applaud him for approaching the game as if they have a chance! Because of that I have more respect for him as a player. 

I wish my Bengals hadn't given up on him... When Hue was with the Bengals he tried to get Pryor to make the switch to receiver... What could have been!

Go Buckeyes and beat Maryland this week!

I would love to own and ride a motorcycle. I feel like I would be pretty safe, follow the law, and not take stupid chances, but what I cannot control is the other distracted driver - with little-man syndrome - in the jacked-up diesel, driving like a maniac (I know this is a generalization, and a dig, but I couldn't resist). I choose not to own/ride a motorcycle but I do not demonize those who do decide to own/ride a motorcycle. The same applies to bicycles as well. I personally have no need, or desire, to ride a bicycle on anything other than a (paved) bike trail, but I will not demonize those who choose to do so. I will do my best to drive without distractions and give them a wide-berth when passing them. I hope they will be smart cyclists and not be distracted as well and obey all traffic laws.

Why wait for facts when we can just start bitching and moaning about how every cyclist and car driver is crappy! All facts do is get in the way! Also, while we are waiting for the facts lets loot the local Walmart... to make a point about how crappy the whole situation is!!!

Most likely someone wasn't paying attention - Schiano or the cyclist - and caused an accident. Nothing was likely done with intent to harm. Please wait for the FACTS before judging!

Thanks!

Go Bucks and beat the bye week!

Edit: Nappy beat me to it!

There are more than two months until Missouri City, Texas, Ridge Point tight end Mustapha Muhammad is set to be on campus for an unofficial visit. 

The quote actually says "unofficial" visit... I am assuming he is allowed to take unofficial visits prior to his senior year, so you would still be correct about official visits.

I think by the time the Oklahoma game rolls around we will see a lot of changes to the 2-deep on the depth chart. A lot of "or's" will be gone and some of the walk-on's and non-scholarship players will slowly be replaced by higher recruited scholarship athletes. Remember, Urban Meyer has a Psychology degree from UC and is known to use it to motivate players. I think we are seeing some players listed on the initial 2-deep as a reward for hard work in camp.

I remember this game like it was yesterday! I had to watch it with  Florida Gators fan who happened to live in Ohio! Talk about gloating before the game... he shut up real quick after the Ginn TD but came back to life real quick! 

Me and my buddies were ecstatic after the Ginn TD but spent the rest of the game in shock... I remember thinking how awful our OL was and how dis-interested Troy Smith seemed.

Glad we have Urban now...
