Rutgers needs to hire an new Athletic Director before they hire a football coach. Schiano may be a great candidate, but you can't put the cart before the horse and have harmony in major college athletics.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this end very similarly to the Nebraska coaching search and subsequent buyer's remorse. 

I suspect Nebraska's talent level is down now that they no longer play Texas schools. Recruits from Texas are not as attracted to UNL since they won't get a chance to play in their home state.

New HC Mike Riley has never coached a season where he lost fewer than 4 games. They're hoping for miracles in Nebraska, but it seems unlikely.

Jason, I wish you had included the record since these dates:

The modern rules began with the 1912 season, when the shape of the football was standardized, teams were given 4 downs (vs 3) to make 10 yards for 1st down, Touchdowns went from 5 pts to 6, PATs from 2 to 1 point, field size from 110 yds to 100 yds (not including two 10-yard deep end zones), and kickoff came from 40 yd line (vs midfield).  

The forward pass, as we now know it, did not come till 1918.

Helmets weren’t mandatory until 1939.

Platooning was first allowed in 1941 (then banned in 1953 and brought back in 1965).

Face Masks weren’t legalized until 1951, when Woody Hayes started coaching at Ohio State.

Not to mention a Natty. It's good to be a Buckeye.

TUN with 18:32 to 11:28 time of possession advantage. OSU’s offense is doing its part, but the D missing tackles and spotty Pass D is letting team down. Need to get off the field by stopping ‘em on 3rd down; more QB hits and hurries will help, as will much better tackling.

Blame Warinner if you like, but it's the last season to do so. He'll be head coach of another school next year. There are too many openings at Big 5 schools for him to not get one.
