I'll agree on one point:  Big Ten refs do not call enough holding.  It tends to hurt Ohio State more than others, since our D-lines are so good talent wise.

Gene should have been smart enough to allow the NCAA to continue to be the bad guy.  There's a reason all of the schools that have not cooperated with the NCAA have been getting away with relatively light sanctions compared to schools that cooperate, and that's because the NCAA has no subpoena power.

I was shocked we didn't try any bubble screens out of the 5 wide sets, or even tunnel screens.  Those are plays that can be sprung through good blocking by WRs (which we generally get), and help to stretch the defense, as well as building chemistry between QB and WR.

I think Coombs and Meyer are A) Putting trust in one of Coomb's former players (the head coach at Walnut Ridge is a Colerain grad and played for Coombs on the 2004 State Championship team), and B)  The kid can flat out play, and has a winning attitude.  Read the Cincinnati.com article.  It states that he played o-line and d-line for a game because they had 5 starters out injured.  If he has any kind of potential, and is that willing to work, give the man a chance.

Maybe the university can come up with a Post Doc position for him once he's done with his PhD:  Part of the week spent with high school athletes in a program like his initial Master's dissertation research, and Part of the week helping out with the Real Life Wednesdays side of Urban's program.

I can't blame him for feeling in the moment.  He probably got treated like royalty at the UFC, since he's achieved quite a few goals a lot of the UFC guys who are former wrestlers admire, and I'll bet he got invited to work out with them too when he gets an opportunity, and fight them once he's done with his wrestling days.  If you think you are the best fighter, why wouldn't you want the top competitor in a component of your sport to challenge you?  It is what the original best fighters in UFC were:  the Gracies, etc.

I'll be up there this weekend for a friend's wedding.  BTN 2 Go app, I guess, as long as I can get the little bro to give me access.
