I think the players are great. It's all coaching, right now. It's like the coaches went on a shopping spree and fit everything they wanted, into the cart. But, it's still in the cart!
On the field in 2001, he fulfilled Tressel's mission and ended Michigan's dominance.
In 2002, he helped preserve perfection on numerous occasions and ended Ohio State's nearly, forty-year national championship drought.
Wolverine-born and purified on the banks of the Olentangy...
Craig Krenzel is a champion and a living, Buckeye football legend.
MEYER: "WE'RE FULL SPEED AHEAD"
Hoody: Just make it so - ON. THE. FIELD. - Coach U4.8M. Nut up!
Not in my top five. Marco's sauce is too sweet. I like to taste the tomato.
Curiously, pizza is the dominator of this thread.
Remember the Thurmanator?
I'm thinkin' I could crush two, because I ate 5 Wendy's Triples w/cheese in one sitting, once. Then, again that happened when I was an undergrad.
Eat one for each quarter of Buckeye football we'll be missing, this Sat. You'll feel better!
Try this sometime. It's real Jersey-style. They even have mortadella, a Tony Soprano fave:
Of course, with Guapo it didn't matter b/c teams couldn't stop him anyway.
But, Meyer had Guapo and Miller...and we STILL LOST THE 2013 B1G CG and ORANGE BOWL!
Good coaches know how and when to adjust the game plan:
But, a coach must have the will to do so. Nut up, Meyer!
We have the talent. That talent has moxy, too. I thought the players fought hard against VT.
But, it's the coaching that stifles expectations. Urban Meyer and his staff failed to put the players in a position to win. Ohio State should not have lost to VT.
BLOCKO or BLOTTO?
An amusing summary of B1G ineptitude, the following of which made me chortle:
"The Horned Frogs snuffed out Minnesota's running game, a rather important component of a run-first offense."
We never doubted Woody's will.
Meyer's coaching can be ridiculed, because his will is in doubt. Some on this very site have recognized the distinction between UF Urban and OSU Meyer. His own resignation-unresignation-resignation from UF, underwrites this doubt.
Then, Meyer showed contempt for Buckeye fans on his radio show, last Thursday.
Meyer needs to nut up and be a better coach. Period.
Let'em blast away.
I grew up when Woody and "Crybaby Bo" were goin' at it. The Game: 1973, was my first.
I met Woody Hayes. I shook his hand. He signed my copy of "You Win With People." In it, he wrote, "I hope to see you in class, at Ohio State." And I went to Ohio State.
If you know your Buckeye football history, there's been a lot of pain since 1973. We should have won no less than 7 NC's between '73 and '01.
As a Buckeye fan, I am a disciple of Woody Hayes. So, nothing less than an NC, will do.
And when the coach does a bad job, I don't like it. That was a huge shit sandwich Urban Meyer served up in the Shoe, last Sat. That was a coaching failure.
And then on Thursday during his precious radio show, he acts like a fuc#in' prima donna! FAIL!
To me, he's Urban F. Meyer. F is for FAIL. Urban F. Meyer, better nut up!
You don't like this? Blast away!
Maybe you're one of these guys:
WARNING: Celebrating can result in soiled pants.
Urban conceded one of the worst parts about losing is "having to talk about the damn thing," but said, "on his own show" he'd "like to talk about the future."
And from where do you hail?
Saved by Kenny G.
Well, the oft-heard refrain has been to "lose early."
Something tells me, the national champion will have a loss.
It has been suggested the selection committee would choose a one-loss B1G champ over an undefeated B1G XII champ, because the latter doesn't play a championship game. That's one game less and an undeniable, competitive advantage. (Note: If Florida doesn't make up its rain-postponed first game, it could hurt the Gators, were they the SEC champs.).
A lot can and most likely will, still happen, that may surprise us.
The Buckeye fan base is not America’s most hated because it’s reasonable. But that’s not the only reason we’re hated.
Ohio State has the best stadium, the best band, the best fight song, the best rivalry, the best uniform and helmet and the best football heroes.
Other teams will win championships. But, if there is a college football armageddon, Ohio State will be there in advance of that judgment day.
In fact, if Meyer keeps losing and talking shit, I implore 107K Buckeye fans to chant "Nut up or shut up!" in the Shoe!
