Very classy letter, Danny. Hate to see you go elsewhere. After I saw Cardale struggle last year I had serious reservations that Urban's offense could change for a pro style QB. IMHO Urban liked what Cardale added to the O during the playoff and thought   he could make that a permanent change in his O. We saw how that went. 

Best of luck to Danny!

Please send stu10 to a far away place that we never have to hear from him again.

We cheer for the player and the person. Hilliard is young and will get the Mariotti treatment like  Lattimore did with his hamstrings and comeback stronger and hungrier than ever!

I have been to a good number of away games but the Oklahoma fans were hands down the nicest fans I had ever encountered by a large margin. Knowledgeable and very hospitable. I exchanged numbers with one couple and promised to show them around Buckeye Nation if they make the trip next year. 

  I couldn't tell you how many people came up and shakes my hand and asked how we were doing. Amazing. 

  I was expecting much different- Brian Bosworth like crazy people and I was totally wrong.

I am here in Norman. Ate at Cattleman's yesterday, went to Memorial. Need game day hot spots.

Interesting theory. I would like to see the average eligibility of the 22 starters for NC teams the past 5 years. Anyone have some extra time on their hands?

     Thanks for joining us on 11W. Thanks also on the game day info. I will be using it since I am making the long journey to see this meeting of historical programs. I hope you stay in contact with us throughout the season. We had a guest come on board last year from Virginia Tech and gave us insight to their program and updates throughout the season. This type of interaction is one of the big differences between college and pro football . Soonerbred, good luck all season except the night we play you. I hope you will post here many more times before the game and give us insight to the psyche of Sooner fans leading up to the game.

Looking back it is hard to believe after 4 great seasons that Coop didn't have a couple QBs ready for to take the helm. Belisari at QB was to much to over come. 

  To his credit Belisari was the best special team tackler I have ever seen. He would have made money in the NFL as a safety.  He was always the first down to make a play on kick offs and punts. Watch 97'- he was an animal. Just played out of position later on.

I had forgot how much pressure the whole coaching staff was under during this period. Musberger talked about the potential for Coop to lose his job the whole *ichigan game. How in the world did Coop and the other coaches not coach"tight" and or loose their minds. 

  How in the world could Coop recruit with all the negative talk around him?

  The Buckeyes were noticeably faster as a team in 1994 than they were at the end of the Bruce era.

Yes, if he had never had to leave coaching but after 5 years of being out and at his age.... no. After being totally away from the game that long he has gotten to enjoy all the things he was missing out on for the first 60 years of his life. Football has found its proper place in his life now and he is balanced. When you are a head coach of a top tier program like Ohio Srate, life can not be balanced and it's not until you unplug from the whole lifestyle that is HC at OSU.

  As long as you are on that bike, you don't know anything different than grinding from season to offseason to season again. Once off that bike for that long you don't crave that lifestyle again. To win a championship you have to love the grind.

It is not easy to change the culture of a program and to do it within a few months is very rare. Thad is a fabulous coach and person and I am very happy he turned this around and so quickly. Jent and Major are huge additions. With his health situation he needed some old guard help and he got just what the doctor ordered.   Jent = top assistant in the country= smooth transition to Matta's eventual retirement.

Awesome write up. He would have made a great positive impact at OSU. Got to think he was the missing friend that MO needed to take some of the spot light off of him.
