Your comment only explains that Urban was on the market before Tressel resigned. Which is true. However, you also claim that Ohio State would have stuck it out with Tressel had Urban elected not to coach at Ohio State. So, unless I am mistaken, Ohio State either planned to rehire Tress after the season or Ohio State knew Urban would be their coach in May of 2011 when Tress resigned.
if it wasn't Urban, they would have rode out the storm with Coach Tressel.
I am slightly confused. Are you are insinuating that Ohio State KNEW that Urban would be their next coach in May of 2011?
Well, he clearly doesn't encourage them to win.
I would imagine that the coaching staff planned on not having Spence all season since his second failed drug test so I doubt the recent developments would affect their decision on Hubbard.
If the decisions made and the reasons behind those decisions were egregious enough, public dissatisfaction could absolutely sway the committee to make changes. I suppose a better phrase would have been "held accountable." After all, public discourse and frustration with the BCS had a very large role in leading to the playoff in the first place.
Dan Patrick had a great idea the other day - let us watch what goes on inside the room so that we can see at least some of the arguments and discussions. Not only would that provide some insight as to how the panel made their decisions but it would also allow the fans to hold these people responsible if mistakes are made or if decisions are made for the wrong reasons.
I had to add my thoughts. I don't know why but I have a bad feeling this game will be too close for comfort like last year. I hope I am wrong.
If only there was a place on the internet where people could post videos for others to view....
What is the point of your criticism? Is Thad not performing to your standards? He recruits better than any program not named Kansas, Duke, North Carolina, or Kentucky. He lost in the national championship to arguably the best college team in decades, went to the Sweet Sixteen 4 years in a row, another final four and another elite 8. Do you not remember how bad this program was before he got here?
Pretty sure that this isn't real. The pillars on top of the scoreboard aren't there.
Or Ohio University in Athens is looking for a new coach and hires Brady Hoke.
Please, for the love of god, don't do that to my alma mater.
That very well could be. Hopefully one or both end up as good as Smith.
I have long said that Burrow will start at QB at Ohio State before Gibson does and I am sticking to that guess.
Who in college football is "prime time" material?
I guess I did.
Wal-Marts was in Cincinnati, but upon further review. it appears to be in....Kentucky?
There's a joke about those two places being one in the same but I am not going to make it.
but I am thinking more D2 or MAC Schools
I would venture to guess that about half of Purdue's recruiting classes are comprised of MAC level guys so this really wouldn't be too surprising. And that isn't a knock on Purdue or MAC schools.
Tip of the cap to the photographers. No way in hell I could spend that much time in Michigan WalMarts.
Depends on the distance. I don't think Ginn can be beaten in 100 yards.
He is right, though. He basically just voiced an opinion. DVs are not disagreements.
So a team can be ready for primetime one week but then not ready the next week? Share with us which team in the country has been ready for primetime every week in your opinion? Also, what the heck does "ready for primetime" even mean?
I am not one who believes that Ohio State needs Michigan to get better. I think that the B1G will be fine if Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Nebraska and even Minnesota continue their trajectory. It obviously would help in changing the narrative but at the end of the day an undefeated (and, sometimes, as we are seeing now, a one-loss) Ohio State team will be there at the end. And, plus, I will never forget the 90's. Let them suffer.
Not once have I said that we should limit people's thoughts. Though, I love the 11W jail idea . I asked why it was so hard for adults to keep perspective. The premise of the thread was that Ohio State was not ready for prime time because individuals on the team made a few mistakes that ended up making a dominate performance a one possession game.. A reasonable person with perspective would not have said that this team is not ready for prime time as just a week earlier, this exact same team with the exact same players won one of the biggest prime time games in the past several years. At night. On the road. Convincingly.
Does this team need to improve and work on things in the next several weeks? Absolutely. Just like every other team in the country. I am all for constructively criticizing this team but I also don't mind calling out people for making overreaching, unsubstantiated, generalizations whether they are positive or negative.
That's what I just said
