Comment 23 Jan 2015

Right as JH was hired, some delusional weasel fan posted a "why JH is a better coach than Urban Meyer thread."  He then went on to talk about what JH did in the NFL (which really isn't relevant, because, well, we are talking about 2 college coaches who will be coaching college teams).  I get why they are excited, JH is clearly the best of the last 3 coaching hires and I do think he will improve TSUN significantly.  But comparing a man who has never won a championship on ANY level to a guy with 3 titles and a .846 lifetime winning percentages is just, so, well, Michigan of them.  I think a rude awakening is coming for some next season that they really should see coming (but won't)...

Staples has no credibility.  Last year, he couldn't find a spot in his top 30 for a 6-1 MSU team that statistically had the best defense in the country (we all know where they finished).  He was too busy perpetuating the "B1G sucks" meme.  Just another media guy who conned someone into giving him a paycheck for no apparent reason.

Coach Briles has good reason to complain, but he shouldn't blame the committee: if Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby had vouched for either Baylor or TCU as a conference champion, Baylor could have been in the Sugar Bowl instead of Ohio State.

I don't agree with this.  To any person with any sense, it is obvious Baylor was the B12 champ.  Who cares if their commissioner sanctions it?

They weren't in because of the three 1 loss teams in consideration, they had the worst overall SOS.  That is what you get when you aggressively schedule Northwestern State, Buffalo, and 1 win SMU.

Is anyone else sick of this guy? 

You scheduled Northwestern State, Buffalo, and 1 win SMU.  And you want to play for a championship with that?

You let TCU hang 61 on you.  What championship defense ever gives up 61?

Then with the whole world watching, you collapsed against Michigan State, a team Ohio State handled pretty easily in their back yard.

It's time for this guy to go away.

Yeah, I have thought about this bar too.  I have seen fans in our fan base absolutely lynch the Senator because he had the unmitigated gall to drop a game here or there (and yeah, some of them would be considered important games).  I hope this fan base doesn't do that to him in the future.  How long he stays could be due in part to external factors like an unrealistic fan base robbing him of the enjoyment.  We need to fully appreciate one of the greatest coaches game has ever seen while we have him.

People keep forgetting that Braxton and JT are both recovering from surgery.  There are no sure things here as we all learned about a week before THIS season started.

When I upvoted this and clicked enter, 5 votes were added.  Awesome!!

I had to leave another site where people were just relentlessly bashing this kid.  I am still amazed at how angry a lot of people out there are.

Comment 15 Jan 2015

There is one think he can NEVER have again if he leaves now...

A chance to play with his brothers and defend his national title.

Different things have different values to different people.  Me, I love it when a kid puts earning a degree at or near the top of the list.  After all, that's what it's supposed to be about, no?

Good to see you posting here still.  I do miss the old site.  Would have been fun to be over there this year with the way things have worked out thus far.

Comment 05 Jan 2015

Fair enough.  But let's be honest too--some of the perception is based on getting drilled by Florida then getting the benefit of the doubt the next year and losing by double digits.  That has done more to damage the Buckeye name than anything else.  For rival fans, when you get one of the few precious spots, you better produce or you will be crucified.

You are right about excising demons (my words) and that we wouldn't have been given a spot under the BCS this year.  I don't know that that would have constituted getting jobbed either though given the quality of the teams in the top 4.  I feel ya though...

I read what some of them said about Auburn a few years ago.  I really do think they don't watch a lot of football outside of the Pac 12 on the left coast of this country.  Urban has 3 top ten recruiting classes and a winning percentage considerably above .800.  They are in for a rude awakening on Monday

Comment 05 Jan 2015

On that topic, can someone please teach Jalin that he is to stand on the 10 yard line.  If the ball goes over his head, he is like the rest of us at that point--a spectator.  I love that kid, but when I see that a kid doesn't grasp the fundamentals, I lose (what little I have left of) my mind.  That could have really cost us.

Jealousy is a very ugly human emotion.

I had to leave MGOblog for a while after threads popped up arguing Harbaugh was a better coach than Meyer.  I don't even think Harbaugh's wife would make that argument at this point.  That, and the "we're back" nonsense that historically that fan base busts out always way too early.  I guess we can add that to the collection of their September Heismans.  When I found myself tempted to sign up for an account and post, I simply closed the link and came back home.  I really do not think those people understand what Urban has built in Columbus.

Well that is us not finishing the deal and that damn Urban Meyer.
