OSU Football fan for as long as I can remember. Old enough to clearly recall every season since the early 90s. The best game I ever attended was against TTUN at the Shoe in '02. The worst game I ever attended was V Tech in '14 but man did it make the rest of the season that much sweeter!

Fitting that Olave is the featured photo.  He was an unheralded late addition to the '18 class out of CA and looked amazing at the end of his true frosh season culminating in a huge performance against TTUN... great example of finding kids who are talented AND fit your program AND get developed by what sure looks like a great WR coach vs just blindly recruiting the highest rated kids.

Here is their ppg under Rich Rod- not exactly a lot of points but yes their D was the bigger problem his last season for sure:

2008: 20.2 ppg (99th out of 120)

2009: 29.5 ppg (41st out of 120)

2010: 32.8 (25th out of 120)

For a basis of comparison.  In 2016 when everyone hated out offense and we were shutout in playoff, we still averaged 39.4 ppg good enough for 13th out of 128 teams.  So while UM improved on offense, he never had a top 20 offense at any point and his first season was absolutely pathetic offensively.

Exactly.  Remember about this time last year with the Urban crap happening, a lot of the national media picked Wisconsin to win the B1G and make the playoffs... Michigan has a pretty thin and unproven D-Line similar to Wisky heading into last year.  It's very hard to be dominant in college football without a dominant D-line.

Totally agree.  I always tell UF fans (travel to FL a lot for work) the difference btwn you and us is our program is much bigger than any one coach.  They bitched endlessly after Spurrier left and then obviously the Urban stuff is well documented.

No one inherits a perfect a situation if your predecessor is fired.  Even Urban Meyer inherited a 6-7 team with a bowl ban.  Fleck has done little to prove himself at this point in MN and to shit on the regime before you no matter how bad or inept they were is always wrong.  Take the high road and focus on the future.
