I think Patterson is an amazing coach, but I think at least nominal ties to Ohio are a must in any future coach. Ohio is a recruiting battleground, and while tOSU will always have an edge in-state, a Buckeye Head Coach needs to be able to fence off the rest of the Big Ten and big names from outside the conference. I worry that a Patterson Regime will lead to a RichRod situation, where local coaches don't particularly trust the guy and recruits slowly bleed to our rivals. Michigan State is the #1 recruit destination in Michigan now.

The question that remains to be answered, and one that will be of the utmost importance for the University, it whether Luke Fickell is tainted by the current fiasco. Generally, after a fall from grace like that of Tressel's (deserved or not), it's common for a university to simply hit the reset button and banish the entire coaching staff. 

Say what you will about Urban Meyer, but he never had any hint of ncaa scandal surrounding his programs (the conduct of his players off-the-field, however, has not been the best). That said, I vote for Bo Pelini. Woody did fine as a perpetually pissed-off patriarch, and Pelini can perpetuate that propensity.

A high profile arrest is the kind of thing that looks good in the political side of things, ie. to the publicly elected officials ultimately in charge of the police force.

I live in Boone, NC. I respect the hippies. Still, some of them are quite pungent.
