I don't think it is fair to say the defense struggled. They did hold Cincy to 70 yards rushing so Cincy had to move the ball somehow. Sure, I wish the secondary didn't give up a ton of yards either but when you look at it... the run was basically taken away so what do you expect? Cincy to not try to throw it a ton? I think they showed improvement but still have to get better.
Wholeheartedly disagree. No more to be said!
I don't know if this is completely true. For starters I can't recall any other time that OSU was held to a strict timetable on when a position could be hired. Was the HC job posted before Urban was hired? I don't remember. Also Gordon Gee was famous for creating positions out of nowhere and naming whomever he wanted to them, best example I can think of was former Ohio Rep Joyce Beatty who was named Sr VP of Outreach and Engagement. A new position that there was never any job posting for, Gee just appointed her. In addition (and sorry for throwing out some legal junk here) Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 3335 is the law that gives OSU the authority it has and it makes no mention of any waiting period. ORC 3345 governs all other universities in Ohio with the exception of OSU. It's late and I have not read all of 3345 but from a strictly high level review it does not appear OSU would be violating any rules by hiring someone whenever they please.
It get's better.... When you go get your wristband, they put it on for you and you cannot remove it until after you have left the area Tuesday night.
This is a bit ridiculous to me, honestly. I'm all for safety and whatnot but just have the EMT's off to the side just in case like they have in years past. All this nonsense of wristbands needed, designated entrance and exit points... It's overkill. This is an amazing tradition that everyone who attends OSU needs to do at least once and the administration is going to kill it off. At the very leasst get rid of the whole need for a wrist band. That's dumb as hell. It's like you need to pre-register to jump in a damn lake. And if they are only giving out 4,000 of them what happens when they run out? You turn away the drunk 18yo's at the newly designated entrance only gate? Yeah. That will turn out fantastic.
She clearly was partying with those damn catholics Gordon Gee warned us all about.
