He's a loose cannon with a big mouth.  Nebraska could have locked him out, and I'm sure they talked about it when they fired him.  He needs to grow up.  At least one of his players doesn't have his back, because they wasted no time in recording him and leaking the tape.

Worst one of the bunch here.  Great song, but they really mailed it in on the video.  Really, really putrid.

DJsMOM, what do you think about his taste in music?  A little less rap, amiright?

If I were God....

We would beat them every single year.  Generally, margin of victory < 3 points.  Kind of like the 2013 game, except we come from behind to break their hearts.  10% of the time it's a complete blowout like what we just did to Wisky.

3 seasons out of every 5, they would come into the game undefeated.  They would win whatever bowl game they got into after we beat them.

2 seasons out of every 5 seasons, they would suck ass and lose every single game.  In this year, they would lose to Appalachian State, Little Sisters of the Poor (literally), and Illinois.

That is how I would rule if I were God.

Perfect except he has a rifle for an arm, not a scattergun.

Here's the thing, the results of the Wisconsin game could be a little deceiving.  Two of the long TD passes to Devin were 50-50 balls for which he out-competed the DB.  The 3rd one was spectacular over the shoulder perfection against great defense. 

Can anybody think of a Buckeye QB with a more powerful arm?  I sure can't.  Also, the receivers don't drop his passes.  Probably a self-defense mechanism because if they don't catch it with their hands, they'll get a heart-bruise from the pigskin missile. 

I love that Cardales arm, partnered with Devins straight-line speed is going to challenge 'Bama's defense vertically. 

So, I think he has amazing potential.  I think the system is very QB friendly.  But I am concerned that he looked better then he was based on Devin's excellent game.  If one or both of those balls had been intercepted, our perception of his performance would be markedly different.  Also, I don't think they ran as much QB read as normal, so I'm worried that we might not stretch 'Bama horizontally till we get that worked out. 

Finally, and on the bright side, he fills a helmet better than any QB since Jim Plunkett.

There's no denying he cares a great deal for his players

He had no problem keeping Morris out there when he clearly wasn't in a position to protect himself.  Both from the gimpyness of his leg as well as that he was exhibiting concussion-like symptoms that were later confirmed to be a concussion.  His lip-service to caring about "his sons" was just lip-service. 

I guess I'm overlooking that he kicked off the team the guy accused of rape.  Then again, he waited till 4 years after the fact.

They can do much better, both in terms of a coach as well as a "nice guy".

They still would not have a winning hand had the commish "named" them champs.  We still would have been the team selected, because we won our way in by playing a conference championship game against a division champ.
