Harris,
You are dead on about Woody recruiting fullbacks and turning them into great players at other positions one is a former team mate of mine who was a fullback in high school that I played against and he was a hell of a runner, but Woody turned Billy Joe Armstrong into one of OSU's better centers. We were part of the "61" national champ team. I could name a lot more that were converted such as Jack Tatum, who Woody always said could have been one of if not the best runner ever at the Shoe.
At any rate thanks for your insight and GO BUCKS!!

From some of the posts, I gather that most OSU defenders believe you need to be one of the most highly qualified authorities in the nation or else put your blinders on, shut up and watch the game.

Excuse me, but most fans, really do know how to count, and when they count, they count things like third down conversions, time of possession, offensive ranking compared to other teams, yards on offense, victories over ranked teams of equal size and talent and other basic statistics.

I guess we'd better ignore that stuff because OSU's is consistently not doing well in those areas. You need an expert to explain this stuff. And don't look at the last several years either, you might find a pattern where these things keep happening year after year, even after there's a complete turnover in athletes. We sure don't want to see that, it could tell a story that even an unqualified idiot might see but shouldn't say anything. You sure don't want to notice or mention anything like that. Get yourself a sheet of paper and number it from 1 to 100, and just keep jotting down all those excuses, you'll probably run out of room so get yourself several sheets of paper and keep going.

In any endeavor, whether it's business, sports or marbles, it's results that matter, and when it comes to results, most folks are painfully aware of OSU's score. Oh yeah, that PSU game is so big, wow, they beat another over rated Big 10 opponent. OSU sure has "arrived" now.

I think a lot of the players are a class act, they keep plugging away even without inspirational leadership, and put up with the fans and the inept coaching, politics and nepotism. I actually hope they have to swallow a loss now so they can get into a lesser bowl game and enjoy a win against an opponent they can handle outside the Big 10, that will certainly be a refreshing change for them, maybe even a confidence booster that they might be able to play well outside the Big 10 sandbox.

As long as TP is not displaying any kind of sound fundementals i.e. throwing motion, throwing of the back foot, looking off recievers, the QB coach deserves critisizm.
You are absolutely correct. They need to bring someone in to teach Pryor to throw off his front foot. Once that happens, watch out. I cant believe you figured that out on your own. Heck, down there in tampon bay, you probably get three or four highlights a week of the Buckeyes on ESPN to come up with this brilliant observation. I'll bet that if you knew how to spell you would probably have a head coaching job yourself.

Tony, that's exactly what this cite is for, for fans and haters to debate about sports. You don't have to be an MD to talk about the common cold, and you don't have to be a D1 fan to speculate what's going wrong with OSU, especially since there are many "qualified" people making these remarks. YOu don't want to read this stuff, you don't have to. Your post is silly.
The article was about comments from Mack Brown about TP. Should your comments and discussions not be in reference to the article? I know I dont have to be an MD to understand that you have no intelligent observation to offer in reference to the article. Because you have nothing of substance to add, you go off on an uneducated rant that has nothing to do with the article that these comments are meant to respond to.

This c(S)ite is not for fans and haters to debate about sports. This site is for common sense discussion of the Dispatch article.
"You don't have to be a D1 fan to understand that." Whatever the heli that means.

I wish I could believe this and I hope the prophecy comes true, but I just watched him play against New Mexico State and the offense, regardless of the numbers, looked like trash...again.

All who are bashing Nick Siciliano: Here's Josh McDaniel's coaching "resume" before he became the QB Coach for the New England Patriots; College
McDaniels began his coaching career as a senior graduate assistant at Michigan State University from 1999 to 2000 under Nick Saban, parlaying his dad's friendship with Saban.[3]
[edit] NFL
[edit] New England Patriots
McDaniels joined the Patriots in 2001 as a personnel assistant. From 2002 to 2003, he served as a defensive coaching assistant for the team, working with the defensive backs in 2003. In 2004, he became the team's quarterbacks coach.
I've played QB, those of you who are harping on Siciliano simply have zero clue. Go back to your Playstation and "Madden 2023" games.
Let's See.... Comparing coaching under Nick Saban and the New England Patriots to YSU, Doing Video Work at Oklahoma, Urbana and North Carolina A&T, I would think McDaniel had a little higher standard that JT's buddy Nick. When you look at all the mechanical problems TP has, coaching certainly has to be part of it... Like Earle said "If I had the best race horse, I'd get the best trainer"....

"That was 5 paragraphs of stupid."

Apparently "uwrong" has a problem with basic reasoning skills, and your math skills are about as competent as your redneck grammar. You'll make a great OSU fan.
