Why and how would he immediately be a better coach than the last half of last year and the first two games of this year? I can ony guess because Kent State is way undermanned for this game. That does not make a man a better coach. Beating a better team makes for a better coach, and he has yet to do any of that along with all of our other coaches.
With our linebackers and db's giving their receivers 12 - 15 yard cushions they shouldn't have any problems completing 85% of the passes they throw. Anyone ever heard of man coverage in C-bus?
Yea, Doc, this site is beginning to remind me of ESPN.
That sure doesn't say much for the BIG which is holding the bag!
New and improved pass defense? OMG, I think I'm going to puke. Is Ash an ash or what? This pass defense is worse that last year's. Ash must be on something and that something must be pretty potent. Send me some before I watch the next game.
You are right, Alpo, he hung them up.
I liked how Dontre sort of glided in behind Smith. It was about time to stretch the Navy defense and JT and Smith sure did that.
Thad needs a coach on the floor because he constantly chokes in the final seconds of a game. He is a surprisingly poor end-of-game coach.
Wouldn't that correctly be Jim Tressel's seniors? I think so!
Was there four in a row and how many NC's? Oh? Outstanding talent can get you there, but then it is more the coaching as the talent is basically equal on all four teams. Coaching, son, coaching!
Matta will most likely again be a day late and a dollar short in this recruiting war. What is wrong with the guy? He must approach recruiting the same way he approaches end-of-game coaching--he just doesn't do it well.
No decent bigs for Matta. They know better. Only guys like Williams, the gooseneckers.
You have to be kidding me! We will still have Matta and that is bad. He cannot coach up and cannot adjust or coach end of game. ADV is gone thank goodness and Ross is leaving also making room for new talent which, hopefully, is coming in. Matta's recruiting is usually a week to ten days late in most cases. No, I don't care for him much.
Anyone feeling slighted by his decision needs to realize that he is a kid and has done what is in his heart. I wish him the best and hope he performs admirably in every game each year except one!
What a great time that was!
That's no chip, it's a "hello" to the t-shirt girl in the ad to his left.
Yea, maybe they could have a beer together!
No, don't delete it, watch it so you will remember what happens when one of our games turns into the Braxton Miller show.
Does not mentioning the name Fickell in this article make me feel any better about the D? No! As long as Fickell is involved in the D I will never feel good about it. He has proven that he is not a winner defensively so no matter who they bring in it won't matter as long as Fickell is designated as D-coordinator in any way.
Morenlikely as the defense is porous and non existent in the middle!
Anybody know what their degrees were in?
I agree with all of you. I am just trying to change his mind. I wish him the best and hope he returns.
The loss of Vrabel is hardest to replace in terms of passion for and about Ohio State directly. Mike Vrabel loves Ohio State, it's a part of who he is, it resonates through every facet of his personality.
If the above was true, as stated in the article, Vrabel would not be leaving!
The only thing that could screw these young talented defensive kids up would be the coaches as we have already seen.
