So, you're saying that Oho State is not a 'playoff-level' program? That's what it sounds like you're saying, but I'm lost as to how anyone... fan, OSU hater, apathetic college football watcher, avid football follower... could not consider Ohio State an annual playoff threat. Let's see...out of five playoffs seasons, Ohio State has made the tournament twice, won a national championship the first year, got blown out the third year, and finished in the top six of the CFP rankings every year... but they're not a 'playoff-level program' in your opinion? This planet you live on... how close to the sun is it?

Make changes? You’re putting this as OSU making the move? He’s going from a co-coordinator position at OSU to being the sole coordinator at a playoff school... which is a promotion no matter how you’re looking at it, and you’re saying OSU is making the changes.... 

My goodness some of you people....

Nothing special. Just a new coach filling his staff with his choice of people. However, if Washington is being offered some kind of Co-DC job title... it's going to be hard to hold on to him.

I’m sure this means that Al Washington will be filling one of their vacated spots. They will also lose Schiano and then hire someone much better. Such is life these days.

UMBIG-Any news on the Pep front? You hinted a couple of times that he was leaving. Please give us good news...

Marc Givier thinks Schiano will stay and it will be Schiano/Washington on staff at OSU. Temple is the wild card. Don Brown and Schiano are high on their list. That doesn't mean either were offered yet. The AFCA is this weekend. Temple is trying to wrap their hire up during interviews today before the AFCA begins.

No. HELL No.

Major Applewhite is NOT a good OC.

This board (like all boards) tends to be hostile to anecdotes that don't confirm or validate predetermined opinions.

So I'll simply encourage you to look at the stats of Applewhite's OC tenures at Texas and at Houston.

Contrary to popular belief, Houston did not have a good offense with Herman as HC and Applewhite as OC. Check S&P+ or FEI. You'll be surprised.

I don't know if he is a good OC or not, but what I do know is that it is always more about the Jimmy's and Joe's than the X's and O's.  Great players are what make great coaches.  It's not the other way around.  People think a new OC or DC, or HC will make all the difference.  It's the players.  Always has been and always will be.

I expect Wilson to stay.  He's not getting a HC gig, so he'd be leaving to take an OC job at a lesser school for less money.  Maybe his pride will cause him to make that move, but I'd bet against it.

Schiano on the other hand... hard to imagine that he's not hurt and mad that Meyer didn't recommend him for the job, given his prior HC experience and longer tenure at OSU as an assistant.  And he does have HC opportunities, or could even get a coordinator job in the NFL.  I can definitely see him wanting out.  It's also possible that Meyer made an agreement with him before he retired, some big bonus payment or something in exchange for mentoring Day for a year.  (That's pure speculation on my part, I've never seen that mentioned anywhere.)
