That was the best piece of coaching I've seen Creen do at Indiana. I saw a high school coach with 600 wins do almost the same thing once. When he told his players to hold the ball in the last 30 seconds of a lop sided win and one of his players took and made a 25 footer as the horn sounded, after holding it for 29 of the 30.

Matta said, The Grateful Dead say, "Trouble ahead, trouble behind, you just keep rolling with it man".

As far as the chatter out there, Matta joked that he doesn't hear it. "I have a couple people I talk to that I consider good friends - my gas station attendant and my Starbucks attendants - and they don't seem to know a whole lot of what's going on. 

BEFORE the game in an interview with Paul Keels. Tom Izzo said about the game, "I see the talent Thad has, I know how good of a coach Thad is and his team has their backs against a wall. Those together makes this game a real concern for me." 

Izzo also said he sees Ohio State and his team lacking the same thing a TRUE leader.

Agree Canuk. Too slow to play DB in the NFL, couldn't run down JT from behind. Why do you think he was moved to LB by Harbaugh?. Too small and chicken to play LB in the NFL. Proof was the way he back peddle out of bounds on THE most important play of his career at U of M.

Paris would be just another little guy. What Ohio State needs at RB is another big bad dude. Zeke, Carlos, Beanie, Mo C, and Eddie. If  Bama had not lost their big bad RB in the Title Game, they would not have lost. Some Clemson players obviously wanted not part of tackling him. Demario McCall is the best H-back candidate on the roster, a better position change for Campbell. I can really understand why Glover-Williams wants a position change, he's on the tiny size for Safety.

Wilson was a failure as a head coach. An example of the The Peter Principle. Where one rises to the level of his incompetence. Wilson's greatest success was before he got the Indiana HC job. When he was Offensive Coordinator. at Oklahoma. When they only had 24 losses in 10 years.

Has he learned his lesson from The Peter Principle and not be tempted to be a head coach again?

Coaching depth, Ohio State is behind.  Bama's doesn't have as much of the SEC speed as they used to, they've gone for bigger and nastier,.

The issues it could cause with his fellow coaches 

BTW, Urban didn't give him the job because he thought he was ready. He gave him the job to give him a big pay raise to keep him at Ohio State, due to the fact other schools WERE after him. REMEMBER, the first year as CO-offensive coordinator he retained 100% of O-line coaching duties and was kept on the sideline with his linemen during games. The CO part got him a big raise, but he did didn't do a lot of CO work. Only after the VERY experienced team was having issues, was he moved to the press box, leaving his O-linemen alone on the sideline.

A calming feeling knowing that a trusted 11warrior writer says, "It's hard to envision any scenario in which anybody but Barrett is Ohio State's starting QB in 2017.? BECAUSE, the 2017 season starts with a game against a Big Ten team and the 2nd game is against Oklahoma. I would not want to see a neophyte QB have to start the season against those to opponents and get back to The Four Team Playoff.. After that a possibility of a QB change is more realistic.

If JT isn't the starter, the first thing Urban would do is offer him a job as a grad assistant coach working with the QBs. Urban has said of all the players he's coached, JT is best suited to be a head coach one day. 

IMO, if JT is shown the door and an inexperienced QB is named as starter it's an admission that next year is a rebuilding year. Which is seen as a dirty word by Urban.

Which QB is more  likely to win the first 2 games next  year? If you've looked at the schedule, the season starts with a Big Ten  game and the 2nd game is against Oklahoma. I can see someone other than JT being the starter at some point next year, but I'd hate to see a complete rookie start in the first 2 games.
