Agreed, I feel like College basketball doesn't really have that many great Urban Meyer type coaches anyway.  At least, none that would leave their current situation to coach tOSU, or ones on the verge of retiring somewhat soon. 

Wonder if we could make a run at someone like Tony Bennett, who's a Midwest guy... has a great situation at UVA but has to always compete with Duke and UNC, so perhaps, a place like tOSU with the facilities and resources we have could be enticing to him if we made a call?

Archie Miller.  Been doing great at Dayton, with 3 tourney appearances with an elite 8 stop, 20+ wins in 4 of his 5 seasons and on his way to another one this year.  Knows Ohio.  Can recruit Ohio.  Was an assistant for the Bucks.  Also, beat us in the Tourney.

Comment 06 Dec 2016

Exactly, his defenders like to bring up the state of the basketball program before he got here... well, it looks like his good years are behind him and our bball team is falling back to where they "used to be before Thad."

Comment 06 Dec 2016

He's pretty good but we should be able to contain him.  He is capable of breaking long ones though which could help his overall stats, but if the Bucks DL and LBs come to play, he won't crack 100.  But with the WRs/TE Clemson has to go along with Watson, it'll be hard to stop their offense all game.  We will definitely need to put up some points on O.

Comment 06 Dec 2016

Yes they do, but the teams that have been beating the Bucks over the last couple of years (shitty out of conference teams) have no business doing so.  With the recruits he's bringing in... it's not gonna get any better over the next few years either.  This team has been on a straight decline over the last 4 years.  Instead of making the NCAA tourney every year, we're gonna be an NIT participant every year now.

Comment 06 Dec 2016

With all the future recruits we have on fold, we are not gonna improve at all over the next few years.  Love Thad, but his time may be done at tOSU.  Comes a time in every coaches tenure (except the Coach K's etc of the world) where they start declining and I think Thad started his a few years back.

I'm not sure who will all be gone but there's no way Urban can put up with the current OCs we have another year (unless they miraculously call great games on the way to the title this year -- which I don't see happening).  I just hope he's not that stubborn to keep things the way they are after the shit we've seen the last two years.  I saw a Vegas insider post a while back that since Herman left, you can count on 1 hand the amount of games with tOSU having good offensive efficiency.  Not good.  Just seems like the playcalls are too predictable, and the QB position has regressed terribly.  With all the playmakers we have and are bringing in next year and the foreseeable future.. we need someone who knows how to get these guys the ball.  Also, I don't know if Smith is just a recruiter and tweeter but our WRs def need better development.  We won't always have one of the best deep threats (D. Smith) coupled with a bunch of quick slots and and all around great WR like M. Thomas and even with them they all didn't put up good stats.  Do you know how long it's been since the Bucks had a 1000 yard receiver?  I'm pretty sure Michael Jenkins was the last one to do so.

Comment 05 Dec 2016

It's gotta be Lamar Jacksons.  His numbers were ridiculous and the main reason LVille has the record they do.  I don't care if they had a couple bad losses, he was the best player by far and if he does win... watch out Archie!  As he will likely be the front runner all of next season.  

Comment 05 Dec 2016

They do seem to have a lot of hate towards that MAC School Ohio U, so perhaps they can form a rivalry with them!  After all, Ohio did bounce the bball wolverines outta the tourney a few years back. 

They've basically been irrelevant now for 20 season.  I forgot they had a football team during the BCS era and I'm not sure they'll make the newly implemented Playoff system anytime in the foreseeable future... so perhaps a drop down to the MAC can get their football team back to the success they were having 70 years ago?

Comment 04 Dec 2016

I'll bet 3 out of those 4 will be back next season too (everyone but Clemson) and maybe next year PSU who returns a lot can sneak into that 4 spot.

Comment 04 Dec 2016

To be fair, Washington played Rutgers when Rutgers still had everyone healthy, most importantly WR Grant on offense who is a game changer as WR and returner.  Not saying they would've been much improved but offensively with him they would be able to move the ball and possibly score more than they did after he got hurt vs Iowa.  In 3 1/2 games this year he played he had 200 receiving 130 rushing 3 TDs and both a kick and punt return for a TD.

Comment 04 Dec 2016

A team with 3-5 losses could win their conference championship so it shouldn't be the end all factor.  It played a part with us getting in two years ago but I think it was beating a good team 59-0 that did the trick.  Had we barely squeaked by Wisky that year, TCU likely would've been ahead of us esp given our schedule (although there's wasn't much tougher if at all) but given this year, if you have a team like OSU sitting there with 1 loss and all the good wins they have  and not winning their conference, they should be in no matter what unless there's 4 other power 5 schools out there that have 1 loss or fewer and a conference title which there isn't this year.  PSU may have some gripes with getting in over Wash but not tOSU regardless if they won head 2 head.  If it weren't flukey and they controlled the whole game until the end and won convincingly then yeah, I'd give them even more of a shot to jump tOSU despite having an extra loss but they didn't do that, had 2 losses with one of them coming by 39 points.  Not final 4 material, conference champion or not.  If the playoffs were more than 4 teams then yes they should be in.  

Comment 29 Nov 2016

I want them first for payback but their O and athletes on D still scare me.  Clemson ranks 8th in points given up at 17 per game.  Only give up 2.8 more points than we do.  And they have the 3rd most sacks in the Nation... would be a long day for the OL again. 

Comment 29 Nov 2016

Bama hasn't given up a TD in November (4 games).  Our OL got abused by both UM and PSU, could maybe even throw in Wisky too... and they no way compare to Bamas front 4/7.  If we did somehow win that game, it wouldn't be a shootout nor would it be a lopsided victory.
