BIG Buckeye fan. I am from Southern Ohio but travel for work (Generally working in Sec country). I love to argue with ignorant sec fans. I truly believe that OSU football is on the fast track to greatness.

Well if Schiano stayed on staff as a strictly safeties coach after Day was hired it would kind of seem to people like he was demoted. Thats all i was saying. Im no expert on what it takes to run a successful defense so maybe this works for us but it just seems like an odd move to me. I am excited for Washington and Hafley though. I'm hoping Mattison is just here to groom the younger coaches and provide stability to the staff.

Im not too optimistic myself. I think it could work but poaching a coach that was demoted to Dline coach from ttun to be our DC doesn't excite me. I guess im just in the wait and see mode now but i have a feeling recruiting will fall off a little on defense. Hoping these guys can prove their worth in year one to jump start those pipelines back up

What about bring in Jon Gruden to be Director of Player Personnel? The Vols would be so pissed too

Yea and im so jealous. Why is it that every GREAT coach we get leaves after a few years. I feel like that is Clemson's biggest advantage over teams like us and Bama. They somehow can be elite AND hold onto their talented coaches for years. I used to feel the same way about Bama holding on to Kirby Smart for so long. Hopefully Venables gets a power 5 HC job this offseason and takes it.

I guarantee there isnt going to be any complacency with these coaches or players after Meyer comes back. They're gonna be doing a lot of catching up in a short amount of time. Still pisses me off this has taken so long. I guess they're just worried they might miss something and have it blow up on them after they make the decision.

If you compare his Jr. Highlights against Clownys Jr Highlights they don't look entirely different. Clowny had amazing burst off the line which Zach needs to work on and Clowny showed a lot more power. Urban himself has talked about Ohio players being a bit behind southern kids because of no spring practices. I'm seeing a kid that has a monster frame with SHIT TONS of potential just waiting for coach Mick and Larry Johnson to develop. Step into LJ's Dojo and get violent hands and nasty get off mixed with power from coach Mick =....5×5 star generational type talent/#1 overall draft pick! Now we just have to build a fence around his house to keep the Saban and Dabo types out

Like you I agree with the statement for the most part. It is extremely hard for any ole school to just break through and win a Playoff. The ONLY way to do that is to be "9 units strong" and be stacked with talant. I think the only way around the statement is if a school has a young coach like Urban Meyer that just so happens to be from their region and catches lightening in a bottle. When that happens he could change the entire outlook of your recruiting and in turn your program. Imagine if Urban had been from Nebraska and believed in that brand/school like he does OSU. No doubt the future would be much brighter for Nebraska and he would win Championships there. Luckily he's from Ohio and were a juggernaut of college football anyway.

Don't get me wrong Clemson was a great team and the best that year but i think that game result was more to do with our ineptness than their greatness. Besides why does everyone seem to forget they just got blown out in almost the same way by Alabama? Remember we had the opportunity to hit field goals and either missed early in the game or just went for it on 4th instead late in the game.

I listened to ESPN radio on the way home from work tonight hoping to hear them talking about the Buckeyes. When they started talking NcaaM they mentioned Purdue's loss and NOTHING of our win. All of that was even in passing because they were too busy talking about Auburn and Texas A&M and how tight all the games in the SEC have been this year. They can't help themselves.
