Urban F. Meyer (THE CLOSER)

    buckeyebri I need a midnight rendezvous

    I haven't seen a bunch of naysayers on here. Is there the occasional poster that gets crazy, sure. Is there passion about the team and wanting to see improvements, of course. Is there discussion/debate about what folks think, absolutely. It's what a forum is....

    Just wanted to add that I really miss the weekly Observations thread from @Oh8ch

    That's true, @buckeyebri. They are not here, but they are out there in Columbus and elsewhere. I am, by the way, one of those who would like to see another quarterback. What I was responding to was off thread, in a message I got from someone in Columbus.

    We have one of the top coaches in college football coaching at Ohio State. He is in anyone's top three right now. And again, not to anyone here, but I am surprised to see how the armchair quarterbacks are pontificating

    Oh, and is it an occasional crazy poster? What about me? Must it always be about you? And what about @Buckeyeskickbuttocks and his multiple personality sweepstakes? Where would he be if @Fungo Squiggly wasn't tidying up behind him all the time?

    There are some seriously crazy people here. In fact, I think I may be the only sane one left.

    I don't tidy up messes. I pour gasoline.

    While you're at it, don't forget what it was like before John Cooper left, and Jim Tressel came along. Tress was the man for his time. Unfortunately, coaching at OSU never ends well, and never will, I'm afraid.

    Maybe Meyer can break the "curse". Let's hope so. He deserves better.

    Sorry, Urbz hasn't won 8 natties in the 5 years he's been here. Garbage-tier coach confirmed.

    You guys have a valid point about outsized expectations. But I'll bet that some of you, like me, were fully planning in the summer of 2015 to watch OSU go on a run of worldwide domination, the likes of which have rarely been seen. It was disappointing that that didn't pan out.

    The loss to Sparty in 2015 is really the only true black mark on Urban's resume here imo.

    I know I expected them to beat everyone on that schedule by at least 3 TDs. Not only was it arguably the most talented OSU team ever, it was one of the easiest OSU schedules in recent memory. And yeah that Sparty loss hurt bad. Hurt even worse after watching Bama pummel them. Hurt even MORE watching the National Championship and realizing that, with an OC worth a damn, that team beats Bama and Clemson by at least two scores. Could you imagine Wilson with that offense? Might have broken Oklahoma's record of most points in a season.

    Exactly what watching that Sparty game was like.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    I'd trade the Sparty loss in 2015 with a smile if I could give back the loss to the cultists in 2016.
