A HUGE Soph slump? Why, because he was mean to the guy on your staff and you don't like him?
I'll go Browns. Buckeyes have to go undefeated, all the Browns have to do is win the North. Half the North has problems right now, the Bengals just lost the left side of their OL and the Ravens have a RB playing QB. If the Browns can beat Pitt then they will win the North.
as bad as he and his movies in the cape were, they actually managed to downgrade when they replaced him. Its like DC is trying to fail.
1) The NFL has allowed rapist, racist, abusers, and drug addicts continue to play football.
Don't forget killers, I can think of 3 players off the top of my head who killed someone and continued their NFL career after. Zeke pushed another man and some think he should lose millions of dollars though smh.
Sounds like they are just like their coach
I get that, but if Zeke was the one saying he couldn't play through it as the game went on then he wouldn't have been the one criticizing the play calling after the game. Zeke obviously thought he was good to go, so any decision not to give him the ball didn't involve him. If they were that worried about him, he shouldn't have been in there because he took a lot of punishment lead blocking for QB runs as well. Given what we've heard about Ed since that game, my opinion is that he pissed down his leg when adversity showed up. Meyer should have fired him at halftime of that game, but we also know he was loyal to a fault to his bad assistants in season. We can also credit MSU for some of it too because they flowed to Zeke every time Ed called a read option to ensure he didn't get the ball. What that game really pointed out was Ed's inability to change when his gameplan wasn't working.
I'd bet our offense isn't 62 good this year, I'd bet way more that our defense is way better than 39 good though.
A viable option to replace him.
He was their god before he was hired, who can they get excited about replacing their god with?
Direct TV is your friend.
Stacy did from earlier in the week I believe. If he wasn't healthy enough to carry the ball then Meyer, Warinner and Drayton(Alford?) had no business having him in the game. They played him though, and fed him 8 times on their first TD drive of the game so he must have been healthy enough. Ed then forgot he was on the team, and no one screamed into the headset to remind him. Easily one of the worst coaching jobs on offense we've seen outside of the Walrus. If what Zach Smith says on his podcast is true, it makes perfect sense that it happened too.
Why is this always glossed over when critiquing that game?
Because Zeke himself questioned the play calling immediately following it?
Their HC is a shady PoS with an 0-2 record against the University of Maryland, what did they think was going to happen?
Probably why they would try to get a handshake agreement with Urban Meyer before making the decision to pay the buyout.
Overseeing the football program at OSU entails a lot of what you listed. Meyer already meets with OSU boosters for fundraising purposes and deals with compliance issues. He's also been in the media 100 times more than Gene Smith in his tenure here. So the argument comes down to could he build and track budgets and/or meet with other departments to be a successful AD. Personally, I don't see any reason he couldn't. That doesn't ensure he'd be a great AD, but writing him off completely because he's only ever worried about Football is asinine.
Urban Meyer has spent 18 years overseeing athletic programs. AD would be a bigger job, but its still in the same field. The notion he isn't qualified to do it because he's only worried about the #1 revenue producing sport in College Athletics thus far is pretty absurd.
Urban is not qualified to the be the AD here. He’s just not. Gene spent decades as an AD before moving up, and the next guy will almost certainly have the same level of experience
Based on this logic, Ryan Day is not qualified to be the Head Coach here. He's just not.
Drake can GTFO then
How does one get “street cred” on an internet message board?
So Manti Teo’s girlfriend actually said it, makes sense.
Ain’t no laws when you’re drinking Claws
Force them? I take it you’re against the draft too then?
California isn’t much better on the tax front, if these players were smart they’d build these teams in Texas and Florida.
So the Lakers will be playing 3 on 5? Another max deal and they can’t afford to fill out a roster
Where did that info come from though? I agree that any info from Smith should be taken with a grain of salt but do we even know who’s word we are taking over his?
Because every time I’ve seen her discuss things publicly she’s contradicted herself, somehow I don’t think Burt will let that happen in this blog.
