Bend but don't break.
This team is clearly a work in progress. I'm confident with Fick, Vrabel, Withers, and Coombs on this staff.
Not winning pretty, but undefeated none-the-less. The fact that they keep managing to find ways to win is far more impressive than anything else.
I was just talking to a former WVU player buddy of mine and he said if the defensive coaching staff isnt shook up after their bye week, he and some others were going to go over there and roll some heads. LOL
I said, stop by Columbus and get some there too.
Best thing I've heard all season so far: "Yeah, but up there they are still finding ways to win football games. That's building character for next season when every game counts for something again"
I don't believe that these games count for nothing mind you, but people on the outside looking in mostly are envious as hell that these Buckeyes continue to win and most are scared as hell that Urban Meyer is building a juggernaut in Columbus. We're stubbing our toes on offense and having more breakdowns than any Buckeye defense in memory but, he's right. They are still getting W's. Lots of young guys are getting time and lets face it, this is probably the worst Buckeye linebacking corps in 50 years. It certainly is in my lifetime.
Some of that is talent. Some of that is scheme. Some is probably the nature of the game now vs what it was. How many of you have thought about the defenses that our offense is shredding? What do you think their fans are thinking while watching our offense run for over 300 yards per game and hitting big passing plays?
good post, bb36.
Hell of a turn-around in that second half. Great job by the D and it all starts with their coaches!!!

way to keep battling Coach Fickell!
Hypothetically since Luke's name is being tossed around (very early) as a possible candidate for Pitt or Kent State... if so, what would it do to the staff? Could we see any other Coaches follow Luke? I think it would be too early to try and have Vrable as a DC, but couldn't think of any other Coach that would follow him? Coombs as a DC would be savvy. MAYBE Zach Smith as OC, but not sure...
Thoughts for the sake of conversation?
My sole thought is that IF Luke wants to be a head coach in the future, THEN I would like to see him learn about it elsewhere instead of a possible HC-in-waiting thing.
He'd have to "wait" a very long time let's all hope.
Agreed. I just don't want to re-live 2011, and I believe that in order to be a successful HC you will have to learn from many mistakes and make your own system (for lack of a better word). tOSU, to me, is not a place where you learn about either. You're established, successful, and desired by the time the Buckeyes come calling.
I'd like to see him stick with Meyer for a couple more years before making a jump. I don't think Kent or Pitt would be a good move. If Wiscy called I'd listen.
If we're allowed to be picky here, I'd rather he do his 'learning' outside the B1G too.
I agree completely.
