    I hadn't really thought about this until you posted it, but I think this is probably true. This is only a guess on my part, but considering how long Coach Stud has been an assistant, i'm going to assume that he will continue as an assistant - and hopefully he could stay here for Meyer's remaining tenure.

    My only reservation is that we know that Coach W can turn out great OL's at Ohio State, and it makes me a little uneasy taking him away from that.

    That said, Coach S looks exactly like you would expect an OL coach to look, and I suspect Urban knows what he is doing. :biggrin:

    Not sure how I feel about this hire. I remember Urban chased him back when he was first assembling his staff, but Studrawa turned us down and opted to stay at LSU. We ended up with Ed instead, which obviously worked out.

    Still, since then, I've kept an eye on LSU/Studrawa just out of curiosity. It seems like almost all the LSU fans I know, who tend to be more rational than the rest of their fanbase, had been vocally and consistently calling for his head while he was there. The general consensus is that his tenure at LSU was characterized by poor, undisciplined line play, which he apparently did not compensate for with recruiting chops either. This ended with a 'mutual parting of ways' as he left for Maryland.

    What are your thoughts? This is all second hand information, obviously, and quite likely tinged by my friends’ inherent biases. Still, I bring it up because it truly confuses me why we’ve decided to radically change something that has been working very well so far, in favor of trying something new. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, right?

    I think I speak for us all when I say that Ed has been worth his weight in gold the past few years, as the best OL coach in college football. Thus, I'm having a hard time understanding why we are taking him away from what he does best, in order to try him at something completely new, in the process replacing him with someone who hasn’t rated very highly at coaching OL.

    I understand that keeping Ed has been a priority for us the past few seasons. But isn’t this because of what he can do for our OL, and not solely for the purposes of 'just keeping him around'? If he isn't going to be coaching the OL either way, then… what's the point? Recruiting?

    I apologize for the length of this post, but I just wanted to get all of your opinions. Hopefully, you will point out where I am wrong and why the new arrangement is for the best. Either way, Urban has earned not only our respect but a tremendous benefit of the doubt over the past few seasons, and I’m hoping the Greg/Ed combo will pay dividends.

    On the bright side Warinner is still here so I'm sure he can continue to have input in the OL play as the OC. Stud is a Meyer guy so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps the "poor, undisciplined line play" was more related to Miles and the players that LSU recruits rather than Stud's ability to coach. I feel better about this move than Beck last year. I'm pretty sure there were plenty of people against the Herman and Ash hires and they worked out. Hopefully the two Gregs end up being more like Ash, Herman, and Johnson.

    Warinner still wants to be a head coach so this paves the way for him to leave.
    Warinner leaves and we have "continuity" in coaching the offensive line.

    Being a born and raised NW Ohio guy myself, I played HS football against the Redmen in the mid-to-late 90's, during the Coach Kidwell days. I recall guys such as Richard Newsome, Leo Frierson, and Malcolm Robinson during my time. Great players. Casey McBeth was a freak in the MAC back in the day.

    I mention this b/c Studrawa comes from a tough football town that understands how to win - he'll fit in well w/Urban and Co. (yet again)

    Ohio State football notebook | Meyer pleased by addition of line coach to offensive staff

    Coach Urban Meyer confirmed a revamped Ohio State offensive staff on Friday that includes a reunion of him and line coach Greg Studrawa, a move designed to free coordinator Ed Warinner further on play-calling.

    Warinner’s move from the sideline to the press box the last two games of the season paid dividends with wins of 42-13 over Michigan and 44-28 over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl. Previously, the offense had been inconsistent with Warinner on the sideline and quarterbacks coach Tim Beck in the press box.

    “Our offense was as good as it was all year with Coach Warinner and Coach Beck together in the box,” Meyer said in a news release. “So keeping those two in place during games is something, I think, our offense will benefit from as we move forward.”

    This could be one of the greatest collections of coaches and athletes ever assembled!
    Got to see it play out on the field, though.
    Exciting times!

    Yeah, I go back to Joe Johnson (went to ND) and Clayton Moore (relative of Damon and went to Toledo) as they were a couple of classes behind me. Alas things are not the same at the old high school. Stud's school (St. Wendelin) actually doesn't even find a team and FHS has deteriorated badly. The flight out of Fostoria has really taken the toll on the area, not even close to the town and school I grew up in....:mad1:

    In response to Redguard: I've heard the same. I'm hesitant, but hoping Stud is willing to learn from one of the best OL coach's in the country, Ed. We can only hope he comes to practice with willingness to learn that so many other AC's have done with us in the past. I believe Meyer made the right decision just based on his track record, Beck aside, but I think he will have to continually stay on top of Stud's recruiting efforts as I've heard that is an area he is specifically lacking. Either way, I reserve judgement; sometimes a coach needs a change of scenery and encouragement to succeed. I'm hoping our staff and players can provide that.

    I think Urban sees that Warriner will be hard tk keep much longer and is grooming him for a HC position and to be his right hand man for the time being. Keeping Warriner in the bootb with Beck worked great against scUM and the Fiesta Bowl, so why change it? So Urban did the next best thing since Beck wasn't going anywhere and to hire an OL coach with OH roots and recruiting chops and leave little to no dropoff in O Line play. Stud is no coaching or recruiting slouch. His LSU lines paved the way for 4 1000yd rushers and in 2yrs with UMD, they went from 111th in rushing to 31st! Not to mention he got Damian Price and beat out OSU and a number of other schools. Signed La'el Collins, who if not for off the field issues was a 1st round talent and beat out OSU for Ethan Pocic a 4star OL. Stud should work well with this group, and I'm sure coach Warriner will throw his .02 from time to time
