I could not agree with you more. I believe that the coaching staff saw what they wanted to see and where the work needs to be done. The spring (game) practice is not for fault finding which should be saved for game day. I think that the lack of contact is something we will see more of as to avoid injuries. We need to look at this practice in today's climate and try not to compare it to yesteryear. Enjoy it while you can. As you get older you realize you don't have that many games left.

The reason(s) they lost: 1) A three hour different time zone; 2) The Zebras-always; 3) Distracted having to play on baseball opening day, Japan doesn't count; 4) Too close to Disney Land.

I think that sped is a driving factor in selecting out of state players. This is not bad as we saw the Ohio State receivers run away from the vaunted Michigan defensive backs last November. J T Barrett out running Peppers in previous years was a thing of beauty. I leave the selection of high school football talent to those paid to do the job until the prove that they are unable to do it. 9 losses in 7 years  leads me to believe that Ohio State talent hunting has been very good, regardless of the sources.

I will account for the last 70 years and state that Ohio State fans have not changed one bit. They are perfect Sunday morning quarterbacks, want to fire the coach at the least provocation, blame the players for any miscues, and generally find fault. The one admiring trait they have is that they, unlike the fans of the maize and blue, do not blame the officials. As a passing note, one raises pigs and windows and rears children.

He was an assistant football and basketball coach. I have tried to find him in the archives but failed. He and Larry Snyder joined the Navy together, and he was coaching the Iowa Bee Hawks, the team that played the smaller V-7 and V-12 unit schools such as Case School of Applied Science at the time. Bernie Berman of Minnesota coached the Sea Hawks.

GTH, thank  you for the link. In the photo of Schmidt there is also one of my uncle who was later killed in a car wreck while coaching at Iowa Pre-flight. I agree will all that has been said about Schmidt and have long been an admirer. If Day can duplicate Schmidt's first tour games against Michigan, Day will be the hero of all heros.  1934-34-0; 1935-38-0; 1936-21-0 1937-21-0. This has to be the best four year run against UM in the history of the rivalry.
