    According to Indianapolis Channel 13, Dinardo and his entire staff have been let go at Indiana....

    wow.. this is getting ridiculous.. how many coaches can be fired in one year? who's next? vanderbilt? alabama? colorado? ucla? florida state? west virginia? georgia tech? marshall? (for those of you who are umm stupid, i dont believe that these schools are losing their coaches)

    I went to Indiana's official site and there is nothing up about the coaching staff being fired....it wouldn't suprise me though.

    When is the last time they had a winning record?..... 1994!

    Maybe they should focus on basketball....that is absolutely terrible.

    from that same article, regarding Urban...

    "Meyer, who has an Irish Catholic family background, was an assistant at Notre Dame from 1996 to 2000 and has frequently referred to Notre Dame as his 'dream job'."

    The funny thing to me is that despite the myriad of firings, Paterno still is safe.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Penn State would never fire Paterno. I'd bet that when he and the university decide it's time for him to go, they wouldn't announce it during the end of the season like this. He deserves more respect than that.

    Agreed...my point being that only because of the respect he has garnered does he get the opportunity to leave on his own terms. Many other legends aren't afforded the same opportunity.

    hopefully openings don't arise that could mean our coaching cubbard gets raided again (i.e. Mel Tucker, Hazell)

    DId you ever wonder why we have so much coaching turnover, (usually for head coaching spots) while SCum coahes never seem to leave for other oppts?

    Last year BSB ran a story with a list of former OSU assts. that have moved on in the coaching ranks and it was amazing....Saban, Zook, Carrol, Lovie Smith, Walt Harris, and dozens of other high profile coaches in NCAA and NFL

    IS our staff historically that much better? do our position coaches not get paid well? do coahes come through OSU becasue they know it is a grewt stepping stone and they intend on staying a short time?

    any thoughts?

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    What I like about now is, that it seems like tOSU is bringing in more alumni to coach. I don't know if this will maintain more longevity, but it can't hurt.

    I had no idea Zook and Carrol came through tOSU. If they did thats great, what and when did Carrol and Zook do at tOSU?
     
  13. some where on here thier is a thread about all the osu coaches who have moved on, it is very impressive with a handful of big name nfl guys to numerous college coaches.

    I am surprised by DiNardo...heck, they beat Oregon out there, and even though they were 1-7, they showed the first signs of life in several years. Reminds me of what they dod to Cam Cameron, firing him after getting to 5-6. So, expect another 2 or 3 1-10 seasons and another firing at IU. What a joke...no wonder they'll never be good.

    IU needs their football team to suck as much as possible right now to take the focus off how mediocre their basketball team is this year.
