You Could make a song about this post:

The Last Ride

Some don't know

if dogs are Good or Bad

But 15 years

The joy I've had

Make that last ride

Worth all that sad

I just had my last ride 2 months ago after 13 years. It was, and still is incredibly sad, but the years of companionship sure were worth that damn last ride.

Agree. I’m more worried about PSU than one dimensional Wisky. The new PSU QB seems better than Mcsorely and they have some speed on offense. That said, they are still saddled with a head coach who is better at recruiting than game day coaching.

If you keep basing the reason you keep losing to OSU on a talent/coaching/resources gap, then the program is no better than the Purdue's and Maryland's of the world, because that's their reason too. I'm sure no one in Blue land was talking about a talent/coaching/resources gap until the losses to OSU started to pile up, certainly even as recent as 2006.

Harbaugh either gets the program where it needs to be or he doesn't. So far he hasn't.

I found the Senator’s coach speak somehow oddly comforting. It was his way of telling some of the jackasses in sports media to go F off while he went on his way and tended to bidness. That was his style, he gathered the wagon trains around his team and fought off the......oops don’t want to be un PC here. Anyway, Harbaugh? He just fucking wierd and 0-7 against Ohio State so he needs to just sit down and shut the fudge up.

Can always count on you for an unvarnished, rational, take on things - appreciate that. Agree that you have to be ruthless in this business, that business being the excellence that Ohio State demands of its football program. Perform or you are out, especially since Day has no prior HC resume other than 3 games last year. The fact is, we don't know what the unknown unknowns are with him since he doesn't have the typical HC experience one would expect for a premier program. That said, he does have a fully stocked cupboard, and appears to be a bright offensive mind, and has made some great moves so far, so I do think he will be successful, but it best be very quickly.

Pure awesomeness. I plan to print this on laminated cards and send to all my friends to use as a handy reference guide for when they encounter imbecile TTUN fans (I know, that was redundant).

Maybe because the "old guy" has coached against the rest of the B1G teams for a decade now and can help the new D guys who haven't? He won a National Championship with Urban as his D coordinator, is a great recruiter, and is not only respected but loved by his former Michigan players who did not want to see him go. Ageist much?

Don’t disagree with much of what you said, but you are minimizing the health issues, which is fair, because none of us really knows how severe the cyst problem really is and how much worse it gets when urban goes full tilt as a head coach. I don’t think the clouds were that dark, for me anyway, last year but the media coverage sure made it seem that way.

That said, coach Day sure seems to be a drama free kind of guy 

Comment 14 Mar 2019

Good topic. It’s something that’s been on my Radar since Urban arrived. I love how Tress put a fence around Ohio HS players and mended relationships with Ohio HS coaches after Coops pissed many of them off so much they funneled players up North. It felt like Urban going national more than Tress might have strained some of those relationships in the last few years.i guess it just depends how Day will walk that tightrope between the “farm   to table” boys of Ohio and the imports.

Pretty amazing that Mensa Tommy, or Teat Bar Tommy, or take your pick of whatever nickname, actually hired Beck after what transpired in Columbus. Hard headedness? Having a Chris Carter scapegoat in place ready to deploy when needed? Just plain familiarity? Knowing he'd be a loyal soldier? Who knows, but if you get nostalgic for the Beck/Warinner era, just watch Sammy Elinger running it to a tee. You can even guess the plays based on the formations.

Oh, and the bourbon selection for Beck would be Willet, as in how long will it last for Texas Tommy until his very own scandal erupts.
