This is crazy talk.
I was under the impression that if a post is in all caps then it must be true.
Actually the RPO is a play, not an offense. We used to run that play, not so much (actually at all) since MENSA left.
The offense and staff are the reason we were in a position for those special teams errors to cost us. There is no reason we should have been in that position, and that is on the staff.

I remember a few years ago people were half-serious in blaming ND's downturn on the fact that they expanded the stadium and Touchdown Jesus was no longer in view from the field.
I was at the 01 TTUN game too, my first road trip. What a blast that was, and an unexpected victory. Who knew at the time what would happen in the rivalry but the first win up there in 14 years was pretty sweet.
To the folks poopooing the thought:
1) Hazell coached some of the best receivers we've had (Santonio Holmes, Ted Ginn Jr., Anthony Gonzalez, Brian Robiskie, Brian Hartline, Devier Posey). Tell me we couldn't use one of those guys right now.
2) Jim Tressel said on the record that coach Hazell was a big influence on his playcalling in 2010, which before Urban Meyer's arrival was one of the best offenses in Ohio State history.
I'd love to see Darrell Hazell added to the staff. Maybe as a consultant (the mid-season consultant addition is not unprecedented- Saban added Lane Kiffen mid-season the year before he became OC). Maybe Zach Smith decided to further his career elsewhere as an OC and you have his replacement already in house. This seems ideal.
Urban Meyer didn't even know who Tyler Durbin was at the start of the season so I think you get a pass.
Officiating has been horrendous on both sides tonight. Missed calls going both ways.
On the play you mention: Zach Smith was about a foot into the white and the ref made a beeline for him from the field of play. It was almost like the ref wanted to call sideline interference...
So we have the best home run hitter and the best sledgehammer. I'm good with that.
Or that 290 lb. nose tackle from Oregon.
It was a read where JT kept but should have given. The play was blown up so it looked like a sack.
The thing that really drove up JT's carries was the number of times he dropped back to pass but had to scramble for basically no gain. Which is another example of how the pass game was disjointed and needs to get fixed. I'd love to see more tempo as a fix.
They proved they didn't give a shit anymore when they hired Brady Hoke.
Exactly. Just ask Nick Saban, he knows something about that.
I'm concerned about:
Why (virtually) no uptempo?
Are we playing too many receivers and not allowing guys to develop some chemistry?
JT with 26 carries, Samuel/Weber with 24 is crazy.
And those poor kids didn't grow up with air conditioning.
And then they can call targeting. Its a win-win.
EDIT: MANTIS got me by 40 seconds. Great minds and so forth.
Jim Tressel cried a single tear into his O'Douls thinking about how anyone can discount the punt and kickoff return game.
They should just go ahead and schedule it opposite the SEC championship game.
An addition: as I understand it, any sexual contact between and adult authority figure and a minor is rape.
