Destroyed our rival

Eight yards and a cloud of dust

Long live King Urban

Comment 23 Nov 2015

For those of us who grew up during the Ten Year war and the Earle/Bo aftermath, lived through the crushing defeats of the Cooper era, found new life in the Tressel years, and glory under the Urban regime, there is not now and never will be anything that feels quite so satisfying as a victory over that team up north. 

Especially so when you live north of the border, surrounded by arrogant, aloof, a-hole, blue blood fans who think - no, who BELIEVE - they are better than anything the state of Ohio could ever produce. 

Screw them all.

If us fans see he horrific playcalling, don't you think the players see it? How frustrating must it be for these insanely talented guys to pour their guts into the program but barely get touches when it counts?

Someone had to say something, and having it come from a leader ought to get Urban's attention. Changes need to be made now, this week, not after the season.

Mr. Beck, please resign.

I tend to think that his performance this year hasn't hurt his draft stock so much as it's shown the scouts where his strengths and weakness are. With the right scheme and proper high-level coaching, he will have success at the next level.

He also needs to straighten out the space between his ears, as I get the sense that much of his struggles are mental (inconsistent mechanics, slow decision-making, lack of confidence, etc.).

We're all big fans of the big lug, and I think it's safe to say that we wish him all the best even though the current offense is clearly designed for the talents of Mr. Barrett.

I'm a lightweight, only smoking a handful of cigars during any give year. Typically like to go for the Macanudo Hyde Park.

My first obligation is to my family, which could be dramatically affected if I don't do my job. So, no, I wouldn't have let him go even if I really wanted to.
