    Get ready for the ESPN Gameday graphic about the Bucks. I wont be here to see it as I'm headed to a funeral. So everybody would please bitch and complain about herbie and corso in this thread ill be able to keep up with it when i get back :biggrin:

    on a side note, i tried to tell myself how irrational the media is seeing as how this is only our 3rd loss and nobody had us penciled in as OB contenders.....i couldnt even come up with anything. they arent overracting, theyre right :(

    Well, they know once you piss off the OSU fan base, it creates a frenzy, which is good for ratings, so they ignore such things as being a young team and what not. It's the media, what do you expect? Even our own alumni bash us at will.

    Not to make light of your loss, but whats the difference between going to a funeral and watching OSU this year?

    This is one game day I am not going even turn on. I'll wait until we have a winning streak, even if it is one game. Ignorance is bliss!!!

    Mark May is talking about how horribly we develop players compared to all the other top schools.

    Kirk again calling out Tressel, saying we need an OC. Corso said we just haven't recruited guys that are good enough to play at Ohio State.

    From Kirk: "If you win the national championship, and your punter is your most valuable player. If you win the following year and end up in the top 5 and your punter is the most valuable player. If you come back the next year and your field goal kicker is the most valuable player, all on offense. Then you have major problems on offense."

    Mark and Kirk are right. However, Corso is wrong, we've recruited some pretty good players, IMO.

    Guys, OSU's offense does suck - and bumbling might not be strong enough a word. OSU might benefit from a new OC. Corso isn't correct, as the talent OSU is getting is just fine.

    ESPN guys, as we all know, are paid to make overstatements. Since OSU sucks this bad this year, we're going to hear about it. Fuel to the fire in an already over-reactionary town. Tressel shouldn't "fall from grace" simply on account of this season. If he fails to correct whatever the problem is, then yes, he should fall from grace. But, to say that he's a bad coach (like some caller to 1460) said seems a bit extreme. It's a bad year. We have to deal with it. But, lets not go calling for a friggin National Championship calibur coach's head because OSU has lost 3 games. It's absurd. I don't like it any better than anyone else, but come on....

    The douchebags getting the air time are the same douchebags that thought McMullen should have started over Krenzel when Craig was struggeling a bit (though OSU was still winning) I never could understand how some 1460 caller could say McMullen was the better QB when all us fans saw of Scott was a handful of mop up passes (that is, before Krenzel got injured). You just don't go replacing QB's willy-nilly. And you don't go firing a head coach because a team sucks one year (And who knows, if OSU wins out, a 3 loss season is below some people's pre-season prediction of 4 (whcih presumeably was something we were prepared to deal with)) - but has been lights out the preceeding two. If OSU sucks again next year, all bets are off.

    martinss01 blissfully stupid

    *shrug* you can point at that and be upset all you want. personally id be far mroe fearful as an tOSU recruiter in a potential recruit actually watching one of our games. expecially an offensive talent. i can tell you if i were a skill player on offense there is NO WAY ON EARTH i would play under the current system.

    i thought kirk was dead on.
  15. LoKyBuckeye

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

    I don't think Herbie said one thing I did not agree with. Spud head Corso and May were off about the recruits.
