    Ok, Looks like I can keep adding stats to this post as I finish them. Only problem I lose points for posting. Instead of adding three I’ll only get credit for one. Never will be able to keep up with guys like Mili.
    Anyway here is the last of our coaches, #15 through #22.

    Lets start this web site out with a stat you won’t find no where else. No you won’t find it at CF Data Warehouse, 1st –N-Goal, or at Two Cousins CF Emporium. No you won’t even find it at the Official Ohio State web site or “Bucknuts” (well not for a while anyway, unless the bosses here want to buy my copyrights, LOL.).

    We all know that our man Woody ranks 8th. for all-time winning % as a head coach in college. But just how did Woody rank from 1951-1975 while he was the coach at OSU? John Cooper ranks like 17th. all time winning % as a coach, but again how did he rank when only at OSU?
    There have been 22 head coaches at Ohio State, I won’t do all 22 at one time. To start out with I’ll do the first 8 coaches. Then maybe you’ll see where I’m going. I will show the top 3 programs during their sprint with Ohio State.

    You best wait. it won't be in the OSU encyclopedia either, or is that neither.

    No- I'm neither.
    And how did you get 20 damn posts already?

    Now this is what I'm talking about! These are exactly the kind of stats I want to see! I bet Cooper did OK... I'll guess 7th during his tenure. Would have been higher if he left a year earlier! Well... get on with it! :hour:

    Great post BuckJim! :beer: Enjoy the Millers!

    Tressel starts 7-5 and is already at #5!?!? That's Awesome.

    And what can you say about Woody? I'll have to go with a TKO with a unanimous decision and undisputed Buckeye Legend - W. W. Hayes.

    BTW ... 18 coaches the first 60 years and 4 the last 52 years ... hope that stays 4 the last 75 years!

    Go Bucks!

    BuckJim is NewOrleansBuck. King of the Stats.

    Why the name change BJ? I couldn't get CharlotteBuckeye62 to fit but NOB would have.

    Glad to have you aboard.

    CltBuckeye62: The reason for the name change is, I couldn't get NewOrleansBuckeye on the helmet.
    No the reason is, I plan on moving back to Ohio, and since Buckjim is my e-mail I used that. I can also stick to that name when I move.

    $1000 vBucks to anyone who can lure my buddy Jim back over to our dirty little lair over here. He has stats and info no one else anywhere does, and his posts with those are what I miss most (meaning, what I don't get over here in new BP-form) from my BN days.

    Pulled this thread up from the depths, eh? I took about an hour of scrambling around on 4 different sites, and updated #22. I don't know how Jim/NOB does it.

    Current through 2004, not including (obviously) the upcoming bowl game;

    Coach No.22.
    Jim Tressel: (2001- present) four years.
    Record: 39-11-0 (78.0%), Ranked No.8th.

    No.1- Miami Fla., 43-5-0 (89.6%) (Larry Coker)
    No.2- Oklahoma, 46-6-0 (88.5%) (Bob Stoops)
    No.3- Boise State, 44-6-0 (88%) (Dan Hawkins)

    I'll toss this in for good measure;

    In 4 years under Jim Tressel, we are 23-9 against the Big Ten (4 of 9 losses coming this year), 4-0 against the MAC, 3-0 against the ACC, 2-1 against the Pac-10, 2-0 against the Big XII, 2-0 against the Mountain West, 2-0 against C-USA, 1-0 against the WAC, 0-1 against the Southeastern Conf.

    Just for shits and giggles, here it is after the 2003 season;

    Coach No.22.
    Jim Tressel: (2001-2003) three years.
    Record: 32-7-0 (82%), Ranked No.T4th .

    No.1- Miami Fla., 35-3-0 (92%) (Larry Coker)
    No.2- Oklahoma, 35-6-0 (85.4%) (Bob Stoops)
    No.3- Boise State, 33-6-0 (84.6%) (Dan Hawkins)

    So after year 2, JT was tied for 5th. After year 3, tied for 4th (with Texas/Mack Brown), after year 4 (despite the struggles) squarely in 8th.

    No Big Ten teams/coaches rank above him from year 2 forward. Michigan/Llloyd Carr and Iowa/Ferentz are closest in a 2-way tie at 37-12 (75.5%). I'm too lazy to figure out where that puts them on the national scale, but it should be in the mid teens somewhere.

    Didn't we lose to UCLA in JT's first year?
  13. Clarity

    Clarity Will Bryant Staff Member

    Yep, typo. [sub]smartass[/sub]

    Fixed though, thanks for pointing it out. What was '2-0' is now '2-1'.

    Lol, see why we need NOB? He wouldn't have slipped.

    What would really fry our collective melons, is putting the W/L numbers against offensive ranking averages for the same teams during the same period.

    That's Me Baby!

    Coach No.11.
    John Richards: (1912) one year.
    Record: 6-3-0 (66.7%), Ranked No. T24th
    No.1T-Penn State,8-0-0 (100%) (Jo-Pa, no it was W. Hollenback)
    No.1T-Notre Dame, 7-0-0 (100%) (J. Marks)
    No.1T- Wisconsin, 7-0-0 (100%) (W. Juneau)
    No.1T- Washington, 6-0-0 (100%) (G. Dobie)

    Not a bad mark for my namesake!
