This is a horrible tragedy. OSU is just covering its Ass. Plain and simple. It is ironic though that the Stadium is looking into alcohol sales, which kill far more people a year than Mirror lake ever has. Still...it is very sad someone died doing this.
That could wind up being the match of the night. Mark is tough, but still getting used to the weight. Wheeler is tough, but has lapses. Wide open match IMO.
Too bad they just got jinxed.
Huh? Houston won their bowl game last year and have been many other good coaches stepping stones, so they often do well.
I've been saying this too. But I just read between the lines a ton. A while back you could tell Warriner was firmly in Cardale's camp. He kept saying in interviews that they went with Cardale for a reason. Then the switch, and then the DUI for Barrett. Since then Warriner is calling less plays, etc. It only makes sense to realize that Warriner, Urban, and Beck aren't on the same page, which isn't to even mention Alford or TEs and WRs (Brain fart on names). This game it quite obviously came to a head. And as bad as it is, Ash and having a Defensive staff on the same page has paid major dividends. Truly Urban's biggest enemy and thus OSU's is that he will lose coaches every time we achieve major success and sometimes the replacements may not quite be on the same page, but still be good coaches other places. Urban is worth it and will get it figured out for sure.
Howin the hell can Dantonio be Urban's cryptonite when they are 2 ad 2 against each other? Kryptonite does not lose to superman. Ever. Use an analogy that makes sense. Is he a weakness of Urban's? Maybe, But they are 2 and 3 and Urban is the only one that played those games with NCAA sanctioned scholarship limits. Fucking D. U. M. Dumb
Both times I was furious. Man I defend Urban a ton, but he made me look pretty bad last night. I do think he will get us back, but he needs some new staff, and things will only get harder now on a recruiting end, as well as from PSU, TTUN, and MSU all having momentum now.
DING DING!! winner over here. If you look at the offensive playing and coaching you can tell that not only is there not agreement within the offensive coaching staff, but that there may even be underhanded things going on and some backstabbing between coaches. Pretty hard to fix that at this point in the season though.
EXACTLY!! The more I think about it, the more I think that beating TTUN and Harbaugh next week, especially now, would be a huge win. It'd be the biggest win against TTUN since '06, basically.
Then why contribute?
Players on the sidelines were begging the coaches for more chances. The players wanted it. I'm not sure the coaches did. That is why we all feel so rotten. We didnt just lose. We didn't really even look like our heads or our hearts were into it, and that is hard to forget or forgive. Wearing those uniforms is a privalige
Its not that we lost one game man. Its how we lost. Its the way we looked from head coach on down to ball boy. We didn't lose, we beat ourselves badly.
I don't think the book tour can be solely blamed; however, Urban leads that team and the one big speedbump he had to navigate as head coach was the team becoming big-headed and entitled. But the team follows the leader and if the leader is doing book tours, then the rest of the squad worries about the careers off the field as well. Which can be good, but I'm not sure in this case it is.
BUt then why not use Curtis Samuel. Because they needed him so much in the passing game?? Great adjustments coaches!! Made me proud.
I think Urban said to coach Fickell: why don't you coach the team this week; we looked like the offense that year Fickell was coach. What a joke.
Man that game was a kick in the nuts. I have lost a lot of confidence in this program, it was so bad. My only hope is that the team has a good week of practice and that TTUN gets overconfident. Or else our recruiting and forward momentum will be 180 and the rest of the league will feast on us. Kicked in the Teeth again. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you win. I prefer the latter.
The whole team needs a real emotional meeting, then I hope they can realize and remember the love they have for each other and OSU. Even though this season will forever be remembered for the twilight zone game yesterday and they way we shit the bed, it could be a lot worse, and beating a smug TTUN would be a GREAT win, no matter the stakes.
Agree. I hate to say it but Vegas is the only damn thing that makes sense. Otherwise plain jane stupidity.
I hope you trust in Urban running his QB 20 times right into a brick wall. My trust isn't broken, but it did take a small hit. I think Urban was scared. Something was wrong.
Hubris. We got done in by our own hubris, which the media gladly foisted on us and we gladly accepted. VH1's behind the music, they always mentioned that success and the hubris that often goes with it is the hardest part of winning. Dealing with success is hard for people.
SEC fans were also waving rebel flags a few months ago. Who cares what those peeps think?
A lot of blaming Beck. This was Urban. The game plan was Urban, he let the clock run out at the end of the fourth. The whole thing was Urban. Though Beck sucks too. But Urban has these games every so often that are atrocious.
I agree, but I guess to keep your enemy or neighbor from having those ferraris. Still: good point.
This is a very delicate time though. Should we lose to TTUN, our recruiting will become much harder. TTUN will be getting 5 star people like candy, and Harbaugh will be happy. This is something we need to stop. This is actually Urban's biggest game ever. His built in advantages over TTUN and the conference will vanish, as well as Urban's happiness and we saw what happened there. This is going to be tough-sledding.
