First of all, I still really believe in this coaching staff to turn things around.  Michigan State and Michigan are prime examples of how rare it is to continue reload and win every year.  MSU is on a 5 game losing streat this year after going to the Playoff and starting out ranked high this year.  Meyer has lost 5 games in 4.5 years here!

 I think two things stand out to me that need to be changed and they really both tie into the same issue.  This coaching stuff seems to be calling plays for the OSU offense of the past two years and not this years offense.  That being said, I am still going to offer him my couch wisdom.

1.  The O-Line is being asked to block for long slow developing plays.  They run the read option where JT and Weber come to almost a complete stop in the backfield before making a decision on where to go.  This is not the same O-Line and run blocking against blitzes for slow developing read option plays are going to be difficult against opponents with a good front 7.  (Oklahoma's front 7 is not good)

2. Curtis Samuel.  He goes way too long without getting any touches.  Meyer became famous for getting Harvin the ball in space a million different ways.  I would like to see some quick routes letting him run after the catches.  We need to get back to making the defense cover sideline to sideline.

Lamar Jackson the only thing to watch Friday night and Petrino will try to get him 50 TD's for his Heisman run.  He is really fun to watch though.

Haha. I had to read this twice.

I agree with everyone that he has done enough for us and I will have no hard feelings for him.  He has a young daughter and has to put her before anyone.  I seriously hope he shows up at the combine throws it 80 yards in front of scouts, runs a 4.5, and flies up the boards and makes a ton of money. 

I would be extremely excited if he stayed too.

I watched the game with friends at my house and my body feels this morning like I played middle LB for Oregon last night.  I taste beer every time I breathe.  My stomach is just a mess from booze, junk food, and no sleep.  I swear I have already nodded out 2-3 times at my desk this morning and I have been at work for 25 minutes.  

And I am the happiest person in the world right now.  It's hard to imagine any future Championships feeling as sweet as that one did.  Considering everything this team has gone through and the fact that we steam rolled the best of the SEC to get there.  Wow.

I truly believe Cardale could think about turning pro if he plays great the next two games and would lead us to an NC.  I would say he has the best NFL tools of the 3, and he also has his age working against him if he plays two more years.  

I am not saying that it would be the right or wrong choice on his part.  I just think 2 more victories would make that a real possibility because he has the potential to be a great project pick.  Maybe he ends up being Jamarcus Russell without the Purple Drank.

I love how committed she was here.  She is also the smartest person in Alabama. If you look closely its actually a really well-executed play.  She gets the defense to relax by faking the return back to her seat, but does a hesitation move and blows by the guy who was holding her back.

How many 5-star recruits would have bounced back after the first two years Grant had?  This team has an amazing group of seniors in The Grants, Spencer, Heuerman, Bennett, and Smith.  We have so much talent coming back next year, but there is a ton of leadership roles leaving.

Hopefully, whatever happens is the best thing for Braxton and the University.  I am always going to have a soft spot for Braxton because he made me forget about all that was going on with the scandal and gave us excitement for the future.

He turned that Stanford program around for sure.  I think what this year has proven about Meyer is what separates him and Saban from the rest of the field.  Urban was able to insert two new QB's in his system and still make the College Football Playoffs.

Harbaugh was winning at San Diego with Josh Johnson who put up really good numbers there and went on to the NFL.  He was also having his best years at Stanford when Andrew Luck became their starting QB.  I still think Harbaugh is a great coach and the best possible scenario for Michigan.  I just think he has some more to prove before he starts getting mentioned with Nick Saban and Urban Meyer.

I don't think this teams struggles have nearly as much to do with Blatt as it does the players. LeBron only looks engaged in half of the time and admits it. They have absolutely no rim protection. They need to get back to allowing Love to work inside early and often. It seems they just stand ar I understand the 3 point line and expect LeBron to get them open 3's. I know a lot of people likes Delly, but he is absolutely horrible offensively at the point.

Whoever picks him in the draft is going to look very smart. I believe he has proven himself against the run and rushing the QB this year.
