The Irish added a field goal, and with roughly five minutes left, Gardner threw another INT but was bailed out by a questionable interference call. This led to a backbreaker touchdown to Drew Dileo (after another questionable interference call)

Is this meant to satirize a biased fan's perspective? I hope so because it reads pretty childishly otherwise.

You obviously don't know the rules. A swat on the top of the head is flagrant. That's textbook. "Modified clothesline" pretty much tells me you are a hopeless cause.

You got two huge breaks from the refs regarding Craft's 3-point shot clock buzzer "beater" (clearly late, never rectified) and the flagrant foul on Robinson just earlier that would have taken away the Craft foul/layup attempt completely. And you complain about the big one you didn't get.

Shouldn't of lost to Illinois if you wanted the Big Ten title.

It was consistently called. They let them play. Had they not been so lenient, OSU never would have been in the position Craft had them in at the end because they'd be following Michigan again after Robinson's FTs since that was an obvious flagrant.

Fickell has never called plays up to now and Withers had a ton of NFL talent at UNC and never actually molded them into a productive unit. We'll see about Herman, but I'm pretty underwhelmed at the DC choices.

Dantonio's reputation didn't exactly stack up against Rich Rod's at one time, did it? Look how that turned out. And if you want to talk about established reps:

Borges + Mattison >>> Herman + Fickell/Withers

Gonna be a lot of disappointed folks on here when Meyer's record doesn't live up to the virtually-impossible-to-match results of Tressel.

I realize it's normal to want to believe you are taking a step forward in ANY coaching change and to look for all reasons that point to that. Everyone does it and everyone is confident in the honeymoon stage, no matter what happens afterward.

But to disparage the way Tressel did things outside of NCAA compliance and hold up another way as superior and worthy of higher expectations is pretty incredible after eight BCS games in nine years (five wins), three NC game appearances (one win) and 9-1 vs. Michigan.

Tressel had flaws but provided a level of program stability that was the envy of all and it contributed greatly to the consistent confidence of his charges. That won't be so easily replaced by a man who will ponder retirement the first time he gets a bad headache or rumbly in the tumbly.
