    They just put Urban on the spot on College Gameday about whether he's going to be or has been contacted by OSU.

    He was very politically correct and saying that he enjoys his job yada yada, saw some volleyball games with his girls.

    But there was something about it that just looked like he was reading a pre-scripted response.

    I hope to god we land Urban or we're looking at a long uphill climb.

    He's probably at the top of our list, but what about his Florida days with allegations of being a liar addict? IDK much about it.

    I hope he is the next coach. Not surprising he's not saying much about it now.

    I hope beyond hope that Urban Meyer takes the job at OSU. It's not often you have a chance to replace one of the 5 best coaches of the last ten years with another one. Obviously OSU will have the checkbook open. It's just up to Meyer to decide if he wants to come back.

    Meyer, Gruden, Dungy

    In that order.

    I'd say that's a good top 3. My darkhorse guy is Tim Beckman from Toledo.

    Someone with some clout....someone that can coach AND recruit. Boobie's list looks perfect to me.

    Re: Urban Meyer Just Asked Live About OSU

    A pretty reliable source told me Meyer walked away from Florida because he felt he lost control the relationships between the boosters and the players. If OSU boosters have learned their lesson, Meyer can handle the rest. I'd be surprised if he isn't on the OSU sidelines in the next two years.

    Me too.

    This is the environment Meyer wants, and he's a heck of a football coach to boot.

    I'd be interested to see where he turns as far as assistants go. Got to bring in a crew who knows and understands Ohio football as well as keeping their presence in Florida and the DC/Virginia area.

    Re: Urban Meyer Just Asked Live About OSU

    Nothing mentioned yet, so........

    OSU stepped up today and had a decent game. I've got to give credit to Fickell for getting the team ready to play after the fiasco of last week. Kudos to him.

    Not sure how I liked the very conservative game plan, but it sure did work. The O line played extremely well. With all the draws, etc we ran, the O lineman simply took the defender where he wanted to go to create the running lanes. Very simple stuff but it worked.

    One nice TD pass by Miller. ONE completed pass. lol NICE running by Miller all game long.

    The offense is just face palm worthy. I mean you feel like it's back to the leather helmet days before there was a such a thing as forward pass.

    But, the defense is really, really good. Specifically on the corners.

    Re: Urban Meyer Just Asked Live About OSU

    Braxton Miller did nothing all game except for that 35 yard run and the one pass.

    The entire game was won by the defense. They're a great unit, and only one starter is a Senior. They'll be dominant next year, hopefully they have a competent passing attack next year as well. The young receivers must improve, as does Braxton. But they're young.

    I do hope they let Braxton pass more the rest of the season.. It's already a lost cause this year with the 3 losses, so just let him develop in game.

    Re: Urban Meyer Just Asked Live About OSU

    Braxton has to prove he can handle more pass attempts before they give him that opportunity.

    As they should, considering he can barely make a read before pulling it down.


    I want no part of them passing just to pass thinking it's going to help his development.

    Obviously they thought they would have one more year of Pryor. Braxton is a true freshman. It's pretty rare to see a true freshman start at QB these days. The jump in expectations is too much from a mental perspective.

    Re: Urban Meyer Just Asked Live About OSU

    Red-shirting Miller and watching Pryor dazzle was obviously the plan.

    Too bad, this team would almost certainly be heading into a bye week undefeated with two weeks to prepare for Wisky at home.

    What a game that would have been.

    (sighs, takes a shot of Jameson)

    Oh well.

    3 years? Luke Fickell doesn't even deserve the job he has now.
