12/10/2018 - 5:52pm The OSU fanbase is probably…

The OSU fanbase is probably second only to Alabama in "Entitlement Rankings."  Despite the fact that OSU just promoted a guy who has ZERO head coaching experience, they assume that things will just continue on at this stratospheric level.  They (mostly) aren't even worried about it.  And to be fair, why wouldn't they assume that?  I mean, they lost a very successful coach (Tressel) to scandal and ended up with an even BETTER coach.  (I wonder if they recognize how LUCKY they got with that and the fact that it doesn't usually end that way??)

Anyway, they are overdue for a coaching hire failure...

Glad you listened to your body.  I would add for those who might have a similar issue that you should probably call for a ride...

These kinds of things also help us put things like sports in perspective.

EDIT: I see Purple made my point about calling for a ride more pointedly than I.

well we were 10-1...

plenty of time for him to seek greener pastures as well.

12/06/2018 - 8:41pm He was (is) a very good…

He was (is) a very good Dline coach so for that aspect, sure why not?  But because of him having been HC here, I think it would be a huge distraction.  I also doubt he would take that job.

I just clicked on this to see how far I'd have to read before I saw the inevitable "Just beat osu" post. I was a little surprised it wasn't until the second page... (note: traveling to a foreign country and winning football games are not mutually exclusive.)

I think this is more properly worded: "LJ Scott is entering the NFL draft."  Depending on how that turns out he may or may not being "going pro."

12/05/2018 - 8:07pm Wow.  Easily the most…

Wow.  Easily the most disturbing thing I've read on this blog.  I really have no words, except-- CAN THIS GUY BE BANNED??

12/04/2018 - 11:55pm From what I've seen, parents…

From what I've seen, parents have blinders on when it comes to looking for clean programs.  They want their sons to achieve their dreams, which in most cases is the NFL.  They look at a coach like Meyer as someone who can get their son there.  They are willing to overlook some red flags to do so.

I think in the short run, this hurts recruiting.  The long run is unclear.

12/04/2018 - 11:49pm Bridges can be rebuilt. …

Bridges can be rebuilt.  Even if, say hypothetically the recruit tweeted something like "F*ck <insert team name here>"  Hypothetically they still might take the kid.  

12/04/2018 - 11:06pm phew! 

phew! 

12/04/2018 - 7:57pm They have the opposite of…

They have the opposite of BPONE over there-- they just assume no matter what coaching move they make will work out in their favor.  I can't predict how this will turn out, but in theory they are fallible humans that can sometimes make poor decisions too.

12/04/2018 - 7:34pm I heard that about Michigan…

I heard that about Michigan once upon a time...(and not that long ago, it was someone trying to put Brady Hoke's strong recruiting in perspective.)  Unless it's their childhood dream team, kids generally want to play for a coach not a school.  Right now, Ryan Day doesn't have the cachet the Urban had.  

12/04/2018 - 7:27pm IF this was planned/agreed…

IF this was planned/agreed to by the U before the season (as many seem to say) I have to say it's a lose/lose for the university.  They got a PR black eye (pun intended) in order to keep their great coach and now they don't have their great coach.

 

12/04/2018 - 7:27pm IF this was planned/agreed…

Double post

12/04/2018 - 7:09pm I agree with you.  Given who…

I agree with you.  Given who OSU is nationally at the moment, why wouldn't they conduct a national serach?  Tell me which coach wouldn't at least listen to what Gene Smith had to say?  Nick Saban maybe?    It may work out for them or it may not, but I'd say they're overdue for a coaching hire failure.

FWIW most Buckeyes just assume that this will work out for them-- they're speculating how much of a raise he'll get when he wins his first NC.  I guess they've gotten used to falling in a pile of crap and coming up smelling like roses.  

Urban was probably the #2 coach in the country;  I think the only direction to go is down, even if not very far down.

12/04/2018 - 6:42pm WTF have they been doing??…

WTF have they been doing?? Uhhh, preparing for and taking exams, maybe?  Writing papers.  They are still student-athletes.  It's one of the few weeks in Fall semester that they get off.  I'm quite positive the staff has watched the OSU film.

12/04/2018 - 5:54pm People there are guessing…

People there are guessing just like they are here.  If he knew Don Brown's defense, DB should also know RD's offense.  Knowledge goes both ways.

12/04/2018 - 5:50pm Yes, and I'm sure the AD…

Yes, and I'm sure the AD will ask us our opinions.... we fans have very little to say about it.

12/04/2018 - 5:44pm He didn't seem anything-- he…

He didn't seem anything-- he was just as personable as he always is. /s 

(He has always struck me as a cold fish.)

12/03/2018 - 6:41pm I think playing Georgia…

I think playing Georgia would have been high-level BPONE too.

12/03/2018 - 8:42am Really?  10 straight…

Really?  10 straight victories and avenging 3 of 2017's losses?  Except for the bookends, I LOVE how this season has gone.

12/02/2018 - 8:19pm The only Groundhog Day thing…

The only Groundhog Day thing is losing to OSU every year.  Although we do seem to find a new, different way to lose every year.

I saw that.  Did they issue a correction?

Life is short.  Celebrate everything.  Then go accomplish even MORE and celebrate that too.

12/02/2018 - 3:31pm Isn't that what makes them…

Isn't that what makes them our rival?  That they beat us and get to play in CFP?

 

/s

12/02/2018 - 1:17pm Well they're not completely…

Well they're not completely wrong.  I've received mail from there and the return postage is "Notre Dame, Indiana."

12/01/2018 - 9:41pm There's only one explanation…

There's only one explanation for last week-- Urban made a pact with satan to beat us.

12/01/2018 - 9:26pm If Ohio State gets in CFP we…

If Ohio State gets in CFP we get the Rose Bowl.

Because to the casual fan, there is only one game that counts and we lost that one. 

12/01/2018 - 10:31am I don't see any scenario…

I don't see any scenario that Northwestern ends up in the Rose Bowl.  If OSU gets left out of CFP, they get the Rose Bowl.  If OSU goes to the CFP Michigan goes to the Rose Bowl. (Rose Bowl takes best B1G team (or second best if best team goes to CFP)  We are the second best, NOT an 8-4 NU.

12/01/2018 - 8:48am 10>1

10>1

11/30/2018 - 6:50pm How is it that yelling …

How is it that yelling "Unacceptable!" elevates the program?  And for those who "aren't willing to settle for mediocrity," how does that play out as a fan?   What does that look like?  (Spoiler Alert:  it looks a lot like a toddler temper tantrum)

11/30/2018 - 6:31pm I don't think Warinner…

I don't think Warinner thinks exactly like Harbaugh.  Isn't he more of a spread guy?

11/30/2018 - 5:44pm He probably steps down the…

He probably steps down the day after NSD.

Are you a teacher by any chance?  That was skillful.

11/29/2018 - 5:57pm Do I have to think about…

Do I have to think about that now?  Can't I just enjoy watching him play?

11/29/2018 - 5:42pm They also receive free…

They also receive free training in their sport. I think allowing them to do endorsements is the way to go.  

11/28/2018 - 6:47pm This is so me.  I woke up…

This is so me.  I woke up Sunday and thought, "I still have basketball."  GO BLUE!

11/28/2018 - 5:57pm I'd prefer to take away play…

I'd prefer to take away play-off appearances the old-fashioned way-- by pummeling them on the field.

11/27/2018 - 10:40pm Does OSU have a shot at the…

Does OSU have a shot at the play-offs?  Wouldn't we then go to the Rose Bowl?  The Rose Bowl takes the top B1G team that is not in the play-offs, which is definitely NOT Northwestern.

 

11/27/2018 - 10:27pm What garbage time?  Urban…

What garbage time?  Urban left his starters in almost the entire game. (And one had a serious injury because of Urb's desire for "style points.")

11/27/2018 - 5:07pm "WE"?  You on the team??  

"WE"?  You on the team??  

11/26/2018 - 8:39pm Best take on here.  My mind…

Best take on here.  My mind has switched to basketball mode.

11/26/2018 - 7:24pm I was disappointed and I WAS…

I was disappointed and I WAS surprised. I will never be surprised again.(Perma-BPONE)   But I said last year I wouldn't attend another OSU Michigan game until UM proves that they can win one. I've now extended that to watching them on TV as well.  It ruins my enjoyment of the rest of a good season (2016,2018 for example.)  

11/26/2018 - 6:48pm My first thought was " man,…

My first thought was " man, the universe owed you a Michigan victory."  I wish it worked like that.

11/26/2018 - 3:13pm Urban Meyer said as much…

Urban Meyer said as much after the game.  "we prepare for weeks for this game."

11/23/2018 - 11:14pm I haven’t seen a punt yet…

I haven’t seen a punt yet. Offense is great but the defenses are cringe worthy.

11/21/2018 - 4:56pm Brady Hoke is a good man. In…

Brady Hoke is a good man. In the long run, that’s what matters the most.
