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.

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.

Comment 13 Dec 2014

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.

Comment 12 Dec 2014

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.

After he graduated, they changed the name "Glenville" to "Cardaleville"

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.

Too soon

BC tied again with FSU. Winston is hobbled and having trouble completing passes in the rain, BC has been running it well all game.
