|1 day 17 hours ago||Everyone knows what's wrong||
Everyone knows what's wrong with the Buckeyes. Their pass defense sucks. Even Jim Bollman figured that out. Now, why it sucks and how to fix it is a different question.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Supposedly Fickell||
Supposedly Fickell interviewed for the FAU job. If so, he didn't tell Urban about it beforehand, though. He was also thought to be a candidate for Miami Ohio and Bowling Green, but those obviously didn't work out. I think OSU may have an entirely new defensive staff next year, unless Vrabel stays, and i hope he does.

Glad someone else remembers that too.

When I joined mgoblog, I think I had to wait a day before I could post anything. Haven't joined 11W, probably won't. Too many Big Lots Buckeyes.

i think you mean "Dear Leader."

He's gone at the end of the season, either way. Personally, I'm hoping he gets Lane Kiffined on the flight home. This is ridiculous.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He didn't come off the bench;||
He didn't come off the bench; OSU had just gotten the ball back and the offense was coming into the field when the fight started. Moreover, Hall was ejected for the fight; he's served his time. Lewan played the entire game and missed no time. The two cases are not really comparable.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||To be fair, didn't Lewan do||
To be fair, didn't Lewan do more than give people the finger? Twisting guys' helmets, late hits, etc. If that Diane merit a suspension, I don't see how Hall's behavior would.
As for Hall, Meyer said there'd be internal consequences for Hall and Wilson, just no loss of playing time.

You haven't talked to a Penn State fan in the past two years, have you?

I think Fickell was more of a candidate than Coombs.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Roby is actually a pretty||
Roby is actually a pretty good corner when he's allowed to be, and he's very good in run support. Unfortunately, Fickell thinks that corners should give receivers a ten yard cushion on almost every play.

|2 weeks 4 days ago||Or as if child rearing||
Or as if child rearing automatically develops a mature perspective. Parents are some of the scariest fans I've ever met.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Interestingly, most people I||
Interestingly, most people I know who use "scUM" have no connection to OSU. They also tend to be Yankees fans.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, but I was 10, it was my||
Yeah, but I was 10, it was my first time in the 'Shoe, and OSU beat Michigan. I might replace that with 2012 OSU-Nebraska or 2011 OSU-Wisconsin.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan wasn't undefeated in||
Michigan wasn't undefeated in 2006. Different situation.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||FAMU was only on the schedule||
FAMU was only on the schedule because Vandy backed out at the last minute.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I would agree about not being||
I would agree about not being in the top 10, at least in my experience, but i would be hard pressed to put it lower than 14 or 15.
My top 5 would have to be:
1. 2006 OSU-Michigan
2. 2002 OSU-Miami MNC
3. OSU-Oregon in the Rose Bowl
4. 2002 OSU-Michigan
5. 1994 OSU-Michigan - first game I ever went to, first time Cooper beat Michigan.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I agree that there are||
I agree that there are certainly other things that are important, but I think that APR is the easiest to quantify. If a program's APR is showing regular improvement or is consistently high, I think it's fair to say that the program's underlying culture is positive - there aren't kids transferring out, recruits coming into the program are college ready, and the staff has a focus on things besides just winning games.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I don't think the fingers||
I don't think the fingers warrant a suspension, let alone getting kicked off the team. Calisthenics, extra laps, writing essays, etc. would be more appropriate IMO. This was a momentary lapse of judgment by 22-year-old kid. It happens.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Michigan's APR has been in||
Michigan's APR has been in the 945-952 range since the Carr years.

See my post below about APR as to why I'm fine with our program's culture.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||OSU's APR is 982. MSU's APR||
OSU's APR is 982. MSU's APR is 955. Michigan's is 951. Yep, Urban is toxic as hell.

How many games did Frank Clark miss when he committed an actual felony?

He was stopped once in the backfield by Illinois or Indiana, but yeah, only two carries for negative yards for the season. That's gotta be some sort of record.

The rumors I'm hearing are Fickell to Miamii (NTM).
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I doubt it - he missed a few||
I doubt it - he missed a few games this season and his passing still needs work. I think he comes back. Shazier might be gone, though.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||There was fairly blatant||
There was fairly blatant holding by both lines, along with a couple of Kalis blocks in the back that weren't called. The refs were blind to both sides.
