Say what you want about John Cooper. He didn't have the winning numbers against Mchigan or in the bowl games. He did however have a lot of success in bringing talent to OSU. He also proved to have a pretty tough hide in regards to the abuse he took from OSU supporters. To think he still lives in C-bus and helps OSU players where he can. A very tough hide indeed

I will pray for him to accomplish his goal. He seems to be a level headed guy and he did the right thing by getting help from those around him. He seems to know he is going to have to earn his way there and he is ready for that. I hope he makes it, it would be a good example for younger people and how to follow your dream and achieve a Goal.
GO Bucks!!

Maybe he deserves a look. He was very good at lookout blocking. Hey TP, LOOK OUT!

Nice post Terry T! Coop was first-rate in my book (except for that third week of November on most years). He is a quality guy and we should consider him a good part of the Buckeye family (like Woody and Coach Bruce).

My son lives in Columbus and knows JC thru his once upon a time media presentations.
He says people may grumble about him as a coach at OSU but they don't know the
real John Cooper and what he has done for so many behind the scenes and and still does,
and keeps it quite.

I always liked Coach Cooper and thought he didn't deserve the severe critics that he did....but to each his own. He still has alot of love for OSU and it has shown thru the years with gestures like this.

Cordle probably has no shot. He's no better than Alex Boone, Kirk Barton, TJ Downing, or Doug Datish and they're all out of the league already. His ability to play all 5 spots MIGHT give him a chance. Unfortunately 4 years of being coached by Bollman have probably given him bad fundamentals and habits. Then again, maybe he has talent that can be unearthed by a real line coach.

We have been blessed to have such classy coaches at Ohio state. Coach Bruce and Coach Cooper both got the short end of the stick but have remained very loyal Buckeye supporters. I have never heard either say anything negative about the program. And Coach Tressel showed tremendous wisdom and loyalty by giving offices in the Woody Hayes facilty to both. The coaching mess going on at Michigan just makes all this that much sweeter. Go Bucks!

Loved Cooper's record 4/7 7/4/1 7/3/1, I forget the most of them, Cooper needed help. Hope for good things for the class of 2009!

Good observation. Jim Cordle seems like a nice guy, but his feet are too slow for the NFL.

Why so many Cordle articles this year. He was awful for the better part of the last two years. He couldnt block college kids.. Unless Bollman (friends with the Cordles and the reason he played) buys an NFL team he isnt going to play

I respond to this only because I've seen this "his parents are friends with Bollman" conspiracy theory a lot this season. It's not true. Of course, all lineman's parents are friendly with Bollman, but there's no deeper relationship or nefarious "playing favorites" going on here. As someone who works with these people on a daily basis, trust me on this one. Your opinions on Cordle as a player are fair game, obviously, but I wanted to correct this one point.

Cordle was always more interested in what his gf was doing on the sideline, would sprint over to the end zone after every home game, not to sing carmen ohio, but to kiss and hug his girlfriend...looks like he made the right choice, chasing the tail instead of an nfl dream because he got the girl and has no shot in the nfl. Like so many others have said, thankfully we get a new tackle next season.

As for the numerous Cordle articles...it is what the dispatch does. They pick one outspoken offensive lineman every year and purge him for quotes and stories. TJ Downing, Alex Boone, Jim Cordle...

TJ didn't fair so well, cocaine and a firearm, we all know about godzilla, errr Alex Boone and his temper tantrum in California. I hope for Cordle his head is slightly more screwed on than the ones the dispatch followed before him. the dispatch curse anyone?
