There's definitely a possibility. Given the choice between Ash interviewing and not interviewing, I'd prefer not interviewing. But I hope our assistants are good enough to put a good game plane together AND interview at the same time.
Pelini had already accepted the Nebraska HC job before the 2008 BCS title game, IIRC. Didn't phase LSU at all.
Sigh. I see this line of thinking around multiple threads here, and it just simply doesn't make sense. This isn't a question of money.
I'd understand if we were losing assistants to be assistants at other places. But we are talking about a promotion to a HC job. If we want to have the best coaching staff, that will include some coaches who outgrow their assistant roles.
Both PSU and UM fans both fixate on this idea that they do everything the "right way", as evidence by "Success With Honor" and "Michigan Men". The PSU fanbase's lunacy was exposed by the Sandusky case and their hilariously dishonorable response to it.
The UM case is different. They are the most elitist fans I have encountered. They are cultured gentlemen and Ohioan are uncultured swine. Except for the fact that they rely on Ohio for their best players and coaches. Hypocrisy at its finest.
I see this as a win-win.
If Harbaugh goes to AA, it will restore some luster to the BT as a whole.
If he goes elsewhere, and Michigan is forced to hire Greg Schiano, the schadenfreude will be epic.
We can offer more money, but we offer a stepping stone to greater things. So we get the best coaches, then replace them with the best coaches.
If we start offering assistants outrageous paydays, they might get complacent. Dangling the "you could be a future HC" carrot is the best motivator.
Partly because you are arguing different things.
I don't think Meyer goes around looking for assistants who are financially motivated above all else. I think he wants assistants who are hungry to prove themselves. While it sucks to lose a talented assistant, every up an coming offensive mind will be chomping at the bit to replace Herman. All they have to do see how many recent OSU and Meyer assistant have HC jobs.
Congrats to the Bengals. Impressive win today.
Now, will Bengals fans go to the games....probably not.
Not saying I wouldn't want Frost as an OC, but Meyer has enough of a track record with his offensive assistants that he'll find somebody good, Forst or not.
If you can't beat 'em,...
I would the 2009 Ferentz win was the worst. OSU beat Iowa head to head won the BT outright. Iowa had more all BT performers, but Ferentz still won over Tressel. The same people who said Iowa had more talent said Ferentz was a better coach for winning less with more talent.
I would guess try calling or e-mailing the SID office.
2004 game was in Columbus.
After he graduated, they changed the name "Glenville" to "Cardaleville"
There's wide difference between hiring Urban Meyer right away and "struggling".
Also, don't forget Fickell coached a full season before Urban. OSU had a lot of time for
Gene Smith OSU to hire somebody.
I know they have been doing some backchanneling and gotten some feedback, but can we really say the coaching search is either going well or poorly before they even set up an interview? Seems a little flimsy at this stage.
In 1995 and 1996, Ohio State entered as the favorites. But behind Tim Biakabutuka's 313-yard performance in '95, Michigan pulled off a 31-23 upset. In 1996 the Wolverines stunned the Buckeyes again, this time at Ohio Stadium, 13-9.
I wonder what the numbers are on that jet sweep pass play this year. I'd be interested to see JT's numbers if those plays were counted as runs.
Watching FSU must be what other teams felt like watching OSU in 2002
BC tied again with FSU. Winston is hobbled and having trouble completing passes in the rain, BC has been running it well all game.
Danny Kanell had them at #4 this morning. It's odd seeing espn giving OSU some love.
I am somewhat reminded of Beanie Wells in 2006. He was the backup to Pittman, and had a fumbling problem. But Tress played him vs Michigan and he had a spectacular 52 yard TD. Hopefully, Marshall follows the same path.
Dear Brady Hoke,
This illustrates the difference between Ohio and Ohio State.
I wish people would ignore Bayless. He's the trolliest of trolls and continues on just because people give him undeserved attention.
