It's hard, but as in any profession turning over great talent is somewhat of a given that has to be dealt with - a lot of times really good people see that the ascent they want isn't there for them at their current place and seek it elsewhere. Good leaders see that and make sure to cross train and/or keep a good network of people for when the inevitable departures happen. Titles, money, bonuses, recognition and all the other incentives you can throw at good people sometimes isn't enough to satisfy the need to become leaders in their own rights, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. This is where, if there's anything I might know anything about Urban F. Meyer, I believe he will really show what a great leader he is in attracting high-caliber talent to keep the train chugging right along. Even if it's only for two years at a shot.

Any award like this that doesn't recognize the accomplishments of Coach Meyer, his staff, and his team isn't worth having; replacing 12 starters who went to the NFL and achieving at the level this team has this year is what superb coaching is all about, which is what the award is presumably supposed to recognize. Equally noteworthy is the fact that we have 40 freshmen on the roster out of 85 (a shocking number when compared to that of TTUN, who had 43 seniors).

What is most important to me - aside from the winning, which is great - is that this culture he is building will endure well beyond his tenure. Knock wood, his teams are graduating good people, and I have never been more proud to say that I am a Buckeye than I am right now. Keep raining dough on the man - he's earned it, no matter how the end of the season shakes out.

Again, my sincere thanks.

Little things have already snuck up on me that I didn't expect; pops was a six-year Navy man, and TBDBITL's playing the Navy hymn at the Skull Session tore me up. It had been so long since I'd been to a Skull Session I'd forgotten that it was their warmup song!

I am sure that many other things like that lurk ahead, and despite the fact that I have always been pretty stoic, I have to just accept that it will be this way. Thanks for the encouragement.

We said the sa*e thing - this was a failure on the part of the *ichigan coaching staff for not getting their players off the field. The fans did co*e down quickly, but if their staff had done its job, all of the players could have *ade it off without incident. This one is on booger Jim.

Thanks, all my Buckeye friends, for the kind words and thoughts. Dad turned me on to the Buckeyes in 1968, and there wasn't really much doubt about where I would wind up or why. I'm hoping he got some time with  Woody yesterday to kick some yard markers around and tear up some hats!

Putting *y Buckeye groove on, getting super stoked to be attending *y first Ga*e since 1996 by reading the Hate Week Friday Skully from the bunker of a nondescript chain hotel in an undisclosed location in God's country. Searching for an alcoholic libation and a Wolverine pelt. This is going to be a good weekend.
