Love OSU, but Earle is not legendary. Started going to games in the mid 1970's and was going to school there when he was coaching and EVERYONE wanted him fired, except his players so after the final SCum win to go 5-4, all of a sudden they wanted him to stay. Cooper ended up being there quite a bit longer as 9-3 was not doing it, but yes his terrible michigan record cost them repeated National Title chances, unlike Earle's single one in his first season.  As for coaching trees, they are really hard to associate with the head coach and get way too much pub.  Who truly gets the true credit for being someone's instructor since most of these guys were elsewhere and people forget that he did fire Nick Saban.

GoBuckeyes1020 nailed it with the 15 years of more as Jim Tressel ruined it for me. Even during my Woody Years in the 1970's, National Titles were not an option. Beating SCum and winning the bowl game were the best expectations for y as a Buckeye fan, until Tressel won it and winning  Titles became expected and the very plausible norm that has only continued with Urban!. 

Anyone know why they are not showing Pryor's 57 TD passes?  His ridiculous 5 year ban has ended, unlike President Tressel's 5 year show cause that ends in December.

Pre-Tressel, all I wanted, and expected, was to beat SCum and win the bowl game.   Coop was 1-13-1 before this win.  They should have scored all day on Arizona's week pass D.  Not a huge Brent Musburger fan, but he is a legend and I like Dick Vermeil, despite his "robbing" us of a National title.  Yet, the clear fact these guys had to have bet this game, nothing beats Vermeil's referees comment that "Pass interferance!  Pass Interferance! Jesus . . . those guys down there the officials ought to donate their check to charity on that call. My gosh. That is too obvious."

My last year at Ohio State as well when Ohio State was a basketball, not a Football school from 1987-1992. Where we are now, is why one must always learn their history  in order to never repeat it. So much better now as graduate, then it was whilst going to school.  Keep it up Bucks.
