If not for his sudden retirement, you could've bet Scot Loeffler wasn't going to return to Florida after the 2010 season. That's a counterfactual, though. From what I've gathered, Everett Withers was politely encouraged to look for another employment opportunity after the end of the 2013 season.
However, Meyer presents a curious case. He's won, and won big, everywhere he's been. Even Saban struggled in 2007 after flirting with a more "spread" look when he appointed Major Applewhite as OC/QB coach for his one year in 2007.
My own hunch (not claiming inside information) is Tim Beck will probably get another year provided he doesn't pursue something else/something bigger after the season. After all, the worst elements we've seen in the offense this season are consistent with 1) the offense having some growing pains with new voices calling the shots and 2) Beck-Warinner being not fit for offensive coordinator duties. Either one of those might be the bigger issue, but I don't think we'll know after just 11 games (and, it's worth repeating, one loss). Beck, for all we know, may have an incredible turnaround in 2015 when he realizes, figuratively and tongue-in-cheek, he's not in Kansas anymore.
I think it's good for the fan base to agitate over these issues, though. Otherwise, we'll become too complacent before we notice we've become Texas or, before this year's turnaround, Oklahoma.
Again, we'll be fine.
He's going to be the hottest offensive coordinator on the market if/when IU lets him go. I've definitely had my eye on him for that reason.
To echo the previous commenter, IU will likely crush Purdue on Saturday. This would get the Hoosiers to 6-6 and a bowl game for the first time since 2007. Kevin Wilson will hang around IU for at least a couple more years, I think.
I think it's good that the community here has a place to vent. We all kind of wanted to vent. I think the trick is more at the level of the individual poster or commenter to vent with some restraint and perspective.
We're all definitely happier and more jovial after a win; that's for sure.
The good thing is Meyer's tenure has given us every reason to believe Urban Meyer would make necessary staff adjustments to improve the program's chances at national glory. Contrast this with what became of the offense near the tail-end of the Tressel years. Those guys (e.g. Siciliano, Bollman) had zero chance of being replaced with outside candidates that could lead to some good creative friction and a better on-field product.
So, yeah. The loss sucks. We'll be fine, though.
