100 times over I'd agree with you on this. We can only take so much from Kent State, of course, but the game plan was so diverse and aggressive that I loved every second of it. If we called a game like that against Virginia Tech and still lost I wouldn't be nearly as disappointed in the coaching staff as I was. Now, I just hope this game doesn't turn into our Penn State game from last year where we pushed the envelope play call and scheme wise and then dropped back into our usual run, run, run, run, run, 50 yard streak route, run, run, run, run game plan the week after.
I was thinking kind of the same thing, what got me curious is that Meyer seems to be the first "celebrity" coach we've ever had, or at least as far as I can remember. Obviously Hayes, Bruce, Cooper, and Tressel were great coaches but I can't remember a coach ever entering with the expectations that Meyer has had. People are not hoping and rooting for championships, they expect them, and I wonder if Meyer could survive a hypothetical cooper like scenario with amazing talent and great teams but not really getting it done when the chips are on the line.
