As we wind down this season, it is obvious that we are a fanbase divided. Some want to retain RR. Some want him thrown out of town effective yesterday. Some want GERG to stay and be given a chance to work with players who have entered puberty. Other want him gone.
We are not happy with the present state of our program. And who would be? We all remember competing for B10 Championships and Rose Bowl births, and we long for the days where "15 extra practices" didn't even factor in to our consciousness.
But, this is OSU week - to me, the greatest week of the year. We will be facing off against our arch-rival in what is still considered by many to be the greatest rivalry game in sports. This is a time to send nasty emails to your Buckeye friends, to entertain dreams of Denard streaking by helpless OSU defenders, to hope for what could be and to just enjoy being a college football fan.
Whever happens with RR and GERG will not be decided this week. And after this week, there will be plenty of time for discussion on what DB should do. Hell, if we can find a way to go out there and take down the Buckeyes, I would imagine that the discussion would become moot for all but a few fans (who would never be pleased with RR). Greater upsets have happened. Greater upsets have even happened in this very rivalry.
While most are expecting a loss, with our offense, anything is possible. Plus, when a team has nothing but pride on the line, strange things can happen. Plus, plus, RR and the players have said on more than one occasion that they practice something new for OSU every week. I for one can't wait to see what RR pulls out for this game. (I hear that Mike Martin will be playing QB for a play with Denard lining up atleft guard to exploit his speed - kidding, of course).
So let's table the whole coaching decision thing until next Monday. There is a definite time for that discussion, but that time is not this week. After this week, we will have plenty of time to analyze the situation.
Certainly not trying to tell anyone what to do. Just my $.02.
