I thought Meyer required a minimum 2-year commitment from his coaches? Did he make an exception for Schiano or something?
Are some of you reading a different quote from the one in the article? Sure looks like GS reported what he saw.
Q: And did he give you any details about what Coach Schiano had REPORTED to him?
A: No, only that he had -- I can't remember if it was one night or one morning, but that Greg had come into his office white as a ghost and said he just saw Jerry doing something to a boy in the shower. And that's it. That's all he ever told me.
What's the issue here? Why should OSU fire him? Sounds like he did what he was supposed to -- reported it to his boss. That's the only reason we know he witnessed something, right? Because he reported it?
If reporting something illegal at a previous job is grounds for immediate termination where you work, then I can only assume you work for the North Korean government.
No mention of Teddy Ginn? Once he finally got his chance (sometime around mid-season) he blew the doors off everybody.
Heck yeah there is. Having it on my resume actually helped land me my first big boy job after I graduated.
It's exactly what it sounds like. A club where you grill meat and drink beer. It's awesome.
Yeah, he's a stud. But imagine him + Peoples-Jones + Grimes. That's just icky. Like, 2005-06 levels of icky.
The WR potential for this class is incredible. If they even get 2 out of 3 (Peoples-Jones, Grimes, Lindsey) I'd be thrilled. But the thought of landing all three (very slim chance, I'm sure) makes it move a little.
Okay, okay. Makes it move a lot. Don't judge me.
If they're so into BBQ, how come I never saw them at a single party--err, "meeting"-- of the OSU BBQ Club?
OHIO STATE'S PRO DAY TO SHOWCASE 22 FORMER BUCKEYES
What the heck is a "former Buckeye?"
I shudder at the thought of his 2004 season recap.
It was directed at Mr. "Unmitigated Disaster."
Holy irony, Batman!
12-1 (including a blowout over our rival) is an "unmitigated disaster?"
Damn, you sure are hard to please.
No mention of Brendan Ferns at LB? From what I (a nobody) have heard it's 33/33/33 between Penn St, Pitt, and the good guys.
Notre Dame is a disgusting program and I immediately think less of any non-alumni fan of that team. It's arguably the dirtiest program in the sport (historically and currently -- and yes, that includes Penn State), but they consistently get a pass simply because they are ND.
Before anybody calls the above hyperbole, read up on Lizzy Seeberg. Which only scratches the surface.
They represent all that is soulless and wrong with sports as a whole. I hope they get beat so badly that they all die of gonorrhea and rot in hell. Go Bucks.
I was at that Wisconsin game in 2011. Last minute my friend and his dad got some tickets on the cheap, in the visitors' section. We were kinda drunk and figured, "why not go watch Wisconsin rush for a mile?"
After how obnoxious and vulgar Wisconsin fans were throughout the game (the stories I could tell from that game alone...I felt bad, a UW couple with two kids in the area actually left in the 2nd quarter because their fellow Badgers were so bad), witnessing their devastation after that play, first-hand, was just...mmm, scrumptious.
I was saying the same thing at times, but DJ made a good point in today's skull session:
Running back is a brutal position, and there's no need to bludgeon Western Michigan with a Lamborghini — especially when the street almanac is calling for a frosty winter.
To me, Urban Meyer's/Tim Beck's/Ed Warinner's playcalling is better explained when viewed through the lens of "dudes trying to figure out how to use what they got."
Ezekiel Elliott is a warhorse that will be called upon when the chips are down. Players/coaches/fans can say what they want... the chips were never even on the table against Western Michigan.
It's a long season, no sense in giving Z 20+ carries against WMU with B10 season right around the corner.
Solid write-up. That was one of the prettiest balls Jones has thrown since taking over last December. Hit him in stride almost perfectly.
It's also nice to see multiple options on one play. Even if the FS had made the correct read and kept up with Marshall, Jones still had Zeke in the flat for a minimum of 5 yards, probably more.
Am I the only one that finds the decision to abandon the zone-read highly questionable?
Meyer said defenses have caught up to it, but what's his basis for saying that? They used it through the playoffs, and we all know what Zeke did there. Then game 1, no more zone-read. I could see moving away from it if they tried it for the first 3 games and it got stuffed.
Of course, until the OL gets its act together, I'm not sure anything will work on offense.
From Kevin McGuire of CollegeFootballTalk.com:
Asked if brand names come into play with the playoff, Johnson said “It already came into play with TCU and Ohio State. It’s the world we live in.”
It appears you embedded the wrong article there. It links to a Detroit FP article about Cupp and Acuri, not a CFB Talk article from Kevin McGuire.
Yep, I was going to mention this as well. The entry code for the WHAC was 4114 for a year afterwards.
