Bukirob: I'm talking about OSU losing a linebacker coach to a promotion, and suffering in the backer corps because of it. I'm talking OSU losing an O-Line coach to a promotion and suffering on the line because of it. I'm hoping the same wouldn't happen with Kerry. I am rooting for Fickel too, for the most part - Have to be a little cautious since he is recruiting some of the same people in our state.

Moving a position coach to a Coordinator position is always a risky thing. Look what happend to Fickel when he became HC, and his 1st year as DC (before Ash), and also look at Ed Warriner, you can even throw in Walrus, but one might question him as a OL coach too. When you hire a Coordinator from within, you lose the great position coach you had, and you are hiring a 1st time Coordinator at The Ohio State University. Like I said risky, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. An example of when it did work, was Freddy Pagic, dude was a star. Heacock also worked out well, although I was never a big fan of his.

In fariness, I was at the game, and I can't remember one play where someone actually went vertical deep in the first half. I'm not talking throwing deep, I'm talking actually a play where a receiver actually went vertical at all. In the 2nd half it changed, but after the fumble by our RB in the first series, our college team was demoralized...

Where did that come from? I mean, Thompson came out of nowhere to an outright star! Talk about some serious development. I didn't like when Tate was giving him some crap last night when both went for a rebound and it went out of bounds. Thompson was clearly in  front, but not sure if it couldn have been avoided, and Tate should have recognized that. You do not want to stifle your rising star or his recent confidence, and Thompson is clearly the only star on this team. If they center around the humble Thompson this team will be much much better in the second half.

I was at the game, and the play was right in front of me. I was actually recording the video on that play, and I say outloud when I saw JT under center, "Here comes the jet sweep".  Kevin Wilson would have at least 3 different plays out of that formation, including a passing play.
