Either that, or he is aware of his own limitations. No head coaching experience (other than high school). And to be expected to not only turn the program around but to actually compete for championships. This job is not for a first time head coach who will be learning as he goes. Not with the expectations of the fans and administration. The odds would be stacked against him if he took the job, more so than the other names that have been tossed out there.
Now that they have gotten those annoying Title IX requirements out of the way, they can get back to important business.
Not going to happen. He is a specialist who teaches mechanics. But that is only half the job of a QB coach. It includes being able to contribute to drawing up offensive schemes and game plans as well as implementing them. I am not sure he has ever shown that ability. And Ohio State is not an entry level position for that. (by the way, I would say the same for Tim Tebow)
I don't know where you got that idea. Saban doesn't limit his coaches from public speaking
If that happened, it would only be because the B1G and Jim Delaney ordered (paid) those players and teams to lose on purpose. That is the only way that an Ohio State team could win those games. Virginia Tech, blah, blah blah, blah, blah, blah Virginia Tech.

After tonight's game, if they don't make it, the rest of the country will know the playoffs are a sham. And the four teams that do make it will be breathing a very big sigh of relief at not having to play the Bucks.
Born in Columbus. Family lived all over with a father who was career Air Force. Settled back in Columbus to attend OSU in the early to mid 90's. Been living in St. Louis for the last 10 years.
And yes, 11W allows me to feed the Buckeye monkey on my back.
What a change three months make. After the Virginia Tech game, many of the posters on this site would have packed the moving truck for him.
And yes, I know it was the hysterical fringe. And yet, to have not one negative post on this thread just indicates how incredible the improvement has been on this team over the course of the season.
Can anyone explain how the NCAA can prohibit player-agent arrangements for college players, but see no problems with high school athletes (who will presumably go on to college athletics) making arrangements to play for a sports agency run prep school?
Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the Buckeye Nation and its Horseshoe lasts for a thousand years, men will still say, ‘This was their finest hour!’

The way this offense has been racking up yardage and points, buckeye punters will have about as much chance of winning conference awards as Urban Meyer has of winning B1G COY.
That would be Bill Callahan 2.0.
Why? So we can listen to him whine next year about how Fickell left the cupboard bare of talent?
Possibly. Or something similar to how the B1G handled their expansion with new teams. Nebraska didn't initially receive a full share the first few years until they were "fully vested." That might be the logic here. Just like Delaney's argument a few years ago against TCU and Boise St.having access to the Rose Bowl. He claimed the Pac and Big had developed the value for the Rose Bowl over the years and that Johnny-come-latelies like TCU and Boise St. who had not contributed to that value should not profit from it.
Again, any team that can make the jump like that (probably still transitioning from a 60 scholarship roster for the next couple of years until they can build up to 85) should be rewarded.
I feel like Cindy Lou Who entering the living room to find the Grinch bagging the last of the Christmas decorations.
Wait a minute. I thought the prevailing opinion was that Urban had lost his touch with recruiting?
