Not going to report until 100% sure. Seems a bit like conjecture at this very moment.
I have absolutely no idea whether or not this is a good hire, and I'm not going to pretend to.
But a change was needed, and this is why I trust Urban Meyer.
He's been a great coach in large part because of his lack of stubbornness. He is willing to adapt, he is always curious about new ways to make his teams better and stay ahead of the curve.
He tried something with his current staff. It did not work. He recognized that, and he's making changes.
No idea whether or not this is the right choice, but I sure as hell wish coach Day all the luck in the world, and I'm already looking forward to September 2017.
This is a long time comin'.
It's bittersweet to say the least.
Congratulations, big guy. You've most certainly earned it. Thank you for the memories, especially Urbz giving you a big bear hug after your defense put forth the most dominant performance I've ever seen from the Scarlet & Gray.
And then that fullback knocked Devin Gardner into next week.
I have no idea how one could downvote this.
LET'S BOOGIE, YA'LL.
TIME TO DANCE.
This headline was totally misleading.
I thought you guys had the inside scoop or something.
DON'T TOY WITH MY EMOTIONS!
As far as players acting poorly, eh... the Peppers shove is of course inexcusable. The Bock O thing was disrespectful. But so was the big banner incident of 1973. So was Marcus Hall's double bird. Many players have lost their cool throughout this rivalry, on both sides. It happens.
The post-game whine sesh, though? Yeah, I've got no time for that.
I know we all love Urban (and we damn well should for what he's done and continues to do with this program), but I think HE has to step up his game as well.
Yesterday was a gutsy win. I'll remember it for the rest of my life. But it was hardly Urban's best performance as a coach. They won't escape with victories if more of the same awaits.
The only thing I can say there is that while they will all have two losses, one will have 11 wins and a conference title. It's gotta count for something.
Man, I see what you're saying, but that one's a hard sell.
Let's say out of Washington and Clemson, only of them loses.
And the committee puts both Ohio State and Michigan in.
They're REALLY devaluing conference titles if they do that. I think that sets a pretty odd precedent.
But if they both lose? ... Yeah, I can see it.
One thing that also should be stated, is a team that lost two games in November really deserving? We've seen that hitting your stride at the right time is really crucial as far as the committee's thought process is concerned. Hard to say that's the case when you lose two of your last three.
Right? I would think the Big Ten Champion would have a better shot, even with Michigan having beaten both representatives.
