I love me some Coombs, but am suspect about his coaching abilities. Was he or Urban the special teams coach? I know Urbz has done that in the past, I thought Urbz relinquished the duties to Coombs though. Make the guy the Special Teams coordinator / Recruiting Pitchman!

He did get us Cameron Johnston, who was often overlooked because we didn't punt much. But I thought he kicked exceptional. Responsible for 2pts. + the other recruits he has sold on what it means to be a Buckeye!

I said this earlier in the year but what in the world happened to Apple? The guy looked like a stud in the spring game. I know it is the spring game but he was going against some good Buckeyes and shutting them down. Had an interception I believe as well.

He might have been a spring game star, because I was shocked to never see him out there (if he was out there, I missed it).

I scream that at the TV more than Speilman. That was one major strength of the '02 team! FUNDAMENTALS!

I don't want to beat a dead horse cause you're certainly entitled to your opinion. Put yourself in his shoes for a moment. You have a great job, well paid, doing exactly what you want to do; and this is applicable in any job (whatever your dream job is). So you have signed a contract 'til 2020, now your boss tells you to resign, knowing that if you do get fired you get paid for 6 more years according to the buy out clause, doing nothing but eating popcorn on the couch. That is what most men his age would do, heck I probably would as well.  Maybe he'll never coach again and wanted that money for retirement/life. So, I disagree that it shows anything self absorbed. 

I wish the man luck, wherever he lands.

PS; If know it is ESPN, but the article has $$$ amounts. http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/10109592/mack-brown-only-line-275-million-buyout-texas-longhorns-make-coaching-change

To me, that article, shows his unselfishness

No one said he deserved better. He started to fail and was forced out. He was classy, when he could've let his "self-absorbed ego" get in the way. 

Being an AD is a big difference than a being a coach. Ever think he is happier on the sidelines?  

Complain about the powerhouse programs all day, but I believe his contract was renewed last year until 2020. The powerhouse programs are just as liable for continually giving contract extensions out like Halloween candy.

I never once saw or heard him sulk. If he wants another head coaching gig, he will get it, as I'm sure his phone is already ringing.

I agree, it seems like major greed from the outside. But Texas continually gave him extensions and pay raises. If I'm not mistaken he had the joke clause like Saban where they're the highest paid each year.  

Everyone on this board would take 500k/year in a heartbeat, but imagine going from 5 million to 500k (life is rough). It is like the average person going from 60 grand to 6. 

Definitely seems silly, but can't say that I blame him.  I don't think he'll be out of coaching very long, so it might be a moot point.

158–48 & 1 National Championship? I think you missed forgot about his good years! Happy New Year, thanks for the comment.

Carr: Orlando, thanks for a great rivalry with great games!

Pace: (Laughs) Thank you for continually losing to Ohio State to get yourself in my Hall of Fame class!

I miss me some Jeni's. Jungle Jim's Market nearby sells it, but nothing beats hitting up the Short North or Dublin location and strolling around with amazing ice cream. 

Comment 31 Dec 2013

Didn't read the bottom portion until now. You're exactly right. Tressel would have had it no better way. Especially the circumstances, with the NCAA and that entire situation, I guess that is what irks me the most.

Yeah, I am torn as to what would be worse in regards to above. All better than being booed, knowing you'll get canned. Or on the tarmac at the airport! 

Comment 31 Dec 2013

Well said! This year we just weren't a complete team. But look on the bright side ^^^, plus the BRIGHT BRIGHT future.  You know you're a Buckeye when a 1 loss regular season is a let-down.  Boy it feels good to be a Buckeye despite the loss! Now, get the ball rolling again with a beat down on Clemson!

Comment 21 Dec 2013

I cannot imagine 2 different calls coming in.  The LB's have to know their zones or what coverage they drop into based on the overall play call.  

Given how out of place the D looked at times, it could very well be true!

Comment 19 Dec 2013

First of all, I wish Coach Withers great success and happiness.  

But I had forgotten that he interviewed for a position last year. I wonder if that didn't sit well with Urban because of his 2 year stay agreement among his coaching staff (handshake deal). We will probably never know, would be interesting to know what really happens inside the WHAC.

I had the privilege about 10 years ago to attend a Clemson game. It was a fantastic experience. Not nearly the volume that OSU has, but it was still a great time tailgating across the hill. I know the buses thing has been overplayed by ESPN, but it was really cool to experience.

It was a great campus, with really friendly outgoing people who went out of their way to call me a Yankee because of my accent. 

LAST, but surely not least, the amazingly beautiful southern belles in their fancy dresses. Luckily I had my shades on!
