He's been good for the conference. He led the formation of the B1G network and paved the way for other conferences to do the same. Our conference collected a nice payday despite the meh performance on the field. He opened up recruiting grounds and increased conference exposure by expanding to the east coast.

He protected the Rose Bowl for as long as he could (the playoffs were inevitable). The Rose Bowl has consistently been the highest rated non-title/playoff game bowl year after year. It is important that a Big Ten team plays there. Teams like Sparty and Wisky should send him a thank you note.

In their better years, Wisky, Sparty, Iowa, and MSU have had lower ceilings than OSU.

I don't think Urban's recruiting approach has failed to yield more national titles. I think his choice is assistants has.

As terrible as McMurphy is, Urban should have fired Zach Smith years ago.

Forget the domestic abuse allegations, the man wasn't performing as a coach. Outside of recruiting, he was the least valuable coach on staff...and the pay raises show it.

I still wouldn't offer Markus Bailey. He's been at Purdue for 4 years and still looks like a blob in his gear haha. He was in the right place at the right time. I'd not replace any of our players with him. Why is it that they make a point to note every Ohio kid that doesn't get an offer from Ohio state? Thousands of kids play football here and 99% of then aren't very good. They dont play on good teams or divisions, they dont have elite film, and they don't have elite camp performances. We have 85 scholarships and only about 20-25 to give out a year. If you want a spot, get better. That "overlooked" mess was on and off during the northwestern game. It was on when the Ohio kid made plays....and somehow mysteriously off when they were getting lit up on run plays or smoked in coverage. I wonder we didjt recruit them ;)

Under this playoff structure, there will always be a chance to play scUM twice. If we beat them in a close game they COULD find themselves at the 4th spot.

So I guess Urban gets a pass for the miss? heh

Reminds me of Jordan Hicks. We never had a chance.

The committee doesn't care about viewership. If they did, OSU would have be in last year.
