On the last two posts: (1) I am not sure if Day will wind up being better than Meyer--that is an almost impossible record to match; (2) I do agree w/ you that there is a risk one day of Day wanting to coach the Pats, since he is from NH; (3) Dallavise--Urban Meyer is top 5 all time--not top 10.
I think when TTUN fans read the book they will bitterly disappointed....
Question will be whether Powers still has interest in TTUN when there is a head coaching change in the next year or so and Don Brown is no longer the DC & linebacker coach?
Remember Clarett only played one year as a true freshman...no telling what he would have done if he could have stayed on the field after that. People have forgotten that female adjunct prof. that blabbed to the NY Times about Clarett's grades near the end of his freshman year against all university rules. You are not allowed to go public with a student's academics. That is a private matter. That is what got all the bad times for Clarett really started and she got off scott free and went to some other school to teach. What she did was awful.
Comic books mostly, but also baseball cards!
Could not agree more--love that comment as well about it meaning more doing it for the great state of Ohio!!
I am sure Joshua Perry, like other former OSU players, will be neutral when it comes to talking about Ohio State. Too bad the same cannot be said about former TTUN players, who are the biggest homers in the world for their former school. (Looking at you, cackling Desmond Howard).
It hurts to see Micah Parsons at PSU. If College Game Day was not in Columbus that day, Parsons is likely starting for us. That really sucked how we lost him b/c he said hello to Eddie George or something dumb like that.
Have Directv. Climbed up a ladder twice at night during a blizzard to wipe snow off the dish so I would not lose the feed. We were playing Wisconsin. OSU wins a close game, and a little after 11 pm eastern time, right after the game, lost complete power for the rest of the night. Didn't matter. Got to see the end of a great OSU win!
Wish he could have convinced Haskins to come back at least for one more year....
Academic people are ALWAYS jealous of the revenue from big time college football.
Please NO alternative uniforms for The Game!! Let tradition carry the day....
He would have a great change to be the starting RB at OSU in 2020 assuming Dobbins goes pro. I hope he changes his mind back to us!
I forget who said it, but the quote was that if TTUN was never able to take from Ohio, their football program would have all the history of Purdue.
Howard and Woodson going to the TTUN was a huge reason for Cooper going 2-10-1. If just those two alone stay home and go to Ohio State, Cooper probably has a couple of national championships at OSU.
First, goes without saying how much talent OSU has had over the last two decades.
One interesting thing for me is how many more players of Urban left OSU early for the NFL, and in some cases, left w/ two years of eligibility left like Lee, Hooker, and of course Haskins. While Jim Tressel has some guys leave early as well, not at the same rate as Urban.
Also, did you notice Ryan Day's comment about next year going into Texas more to recruit? Hey, Texas Tom, that is directed at you...
Two different types of nightmares:
(1) missing/forgetting an OSU game was on TV; and
(2) Losing to TTUN
I like this development. The more things for Urban to do in and around Ohio, the last chance he has the itch to coach again. I really like him close to the OSU campus in his role as asst. athletic director and his continued efforts w/ Real Life Wednesdays.
I think the only way he coaches again is (1) his health issues somehow improve or are not impacted by stress AND (2) there is an opportunity at Ohio State in the future for him to jump back in (for example if in a few years Day wants to leap to the NFL and we need Urban to hold a class of recruits in place.)
Day was 3-0 w/ Urban's players and 2 of the 3 were gimmies...
The last time an Ohio State coach who had beaten Michigan was not presiding over his team the following spring was 31 years ago, when Earle Bruce was a resident of Cedar Falls and busy preparing for his only season at Northern Iowa.
I read that above and I am asking what about Jim Tressel. I was at the Game in 2010 when he beat TTUN. He did not coach the team the following year...not sure if they meant spring practice, when Tresell had not resigned yet?
I just worry about the day when LJ does retire...hopefully that is not in the foreseeable future...
In 2020 we also end with PSU (on the road) and TTUN at home. Far cry from how Auburn and Alabama play leading up to their big game.
2002 looking back, but at the time, so many of the games could have gone either way. Loved when we discovered Chris Gamble was a shut down corner in addition to a heck of a WR. He was the unsung hero of the 2002 Bucks. (With Mike Doss being a close second for unsung hero).
