Pryor was terrible. Coach Tressel was terrible. Defense/special teams did wonderful. They are over shadowed by the horrible play calling and execution. Again, the Buckeye fans are let down. Close is nice, but it's not a win. From what i recall, losing close isn't winnng and I think that is 7 or 8 in a row or they are 1-8 after beating Miami by beating a top 10 team (Texas at Texas). Coach Tressel has become Coach Cooper, in that he can't win the big game vs top programs vs Cooper couldn't win the big game against UM.

How can you give 2 leaves for coaching?? That was an "F" grade they deserved and Tressel CLEARLY was outcoached by Carroll. Matt Barkley is already ahead of TP as a "Quarterback."

USC has two brand new coordinators (because theirs get better ops and move on), Opie Taylor at QB making his first road start, 9 new starters on defense, and 105,000 people on their back.

With all those factors against them OSU had them down and nearly beaten but fortunately for USC, their superior coaching gave them the upper hand they needed to pull out another Big 10 victory.

By the way, I had predicted a 17-13 USC victory that would mirror last years Penn St game. I knew USC would need no more than 2 TD's to win because there's no way we're scoring more than 2. My pick: 17-13, final: 18-15, not bad I must say.

Tressel and his being afraid to get beat coaching style has got to go !! Pryor is a running QB , not a passer. 3 more loses this year PSU,Michigan and The Bowl Game !

I'm not sure what your grade scale is based upon but a 2 for coaching staff is horrible, more like a zero but you're the same guy that gave them a decent grade last week.
