Worse case for Gene.  A top candidate to replace Thad, who also had interest in OSU, takes another job at a school in conference, and with roots to Ohio.

Gene really shit the bed here.

Isn't this what Thad did last year?  Gut check time, everyone look in the mirror, "some of you will leave, don't bother coming in just shoot me a text.  I don't want to see your face", or something along those lines?

One common denominator take between last year and this year is Thad, and I don't think k that's coincidental.

He needs to go.  He is costing too much on a cost per win basis.  He is paid to have an elite program.  We have been shit for the last three years.

Don't underestimate the indirect impact elite athletic programs can have on a university.  There are some very interesting articles regarding Sabans impact on Alabama.  Based on that data you could argue the Sabans, Meyers, etc. are underpaid from a pure value creation perspective.

A strong and successful football program and the "free" exposure it can generate for a university can do wonders In terms of talent acquisition and fundraising.

I was getting hit up by OSU fundraisers the day after the last championship trying to cash in on the high from the night before.  A good chunk of that $2.5B is related to success within the white lines of that football field.

They are unable to offer $450k for a year of their services.

Comment 07 Jan 2017

How about actually making the NCAA tourney?  That shouldn't even be a question at a school like OSU with our resources a s recruiting base in Ohio.

Comment 03 Jan 2017

Kevin Wolsons Wikipedia page has him listed as the OC for OSU effective January 2017, so it must be official....(see above, slow on the draw)...

I'm not sure he would walk in and start for Texas.  They have a returning starter who is a true sophomore.  Why interrupt his progress for a guy who only stays one year.  Especially with how JT played this year.

JT is not an NFL caliber QB.  His arm isn't strong enough, end of story.  His best chance to start is for him to stay at OSU this year.
