I'll be surprised if they get a Bowl ban.

And regardless, they'll be good September 2012.


Anyway, your hate for the team and it's fans is noted.
Please "try" and stay out of threads from now on.
All you're doing is trying to troll and enflame.

[b][size=6]Urban Meyer set to lead Ohio St turnaround[/size][/b]

November, 28, 2011

Five years ago Urban Meyer was celebrating his first National Championship, a victory for his Florida Gators against the Ohio State Buckeyes. This morning Meyer officially announced his intentions to not only return to the sport, but to do so with the team he beat for that title.

This will be the fourth stop in Urban Meyer's coaching career. He had a 104-23 record over 10 seasons with Bowling Green, Utah and Florida. From 2001-10, he had five 10-win seasons, two BCS titles with Florida and a 7-1 record in bowl games.

Meyer brings credibility back to a program that failed to win the Big Ten for the first time since the 2004 season. The two appear to be a perfect match as no school has appeared in more BCS Bowl games than Ohio State, which has done so nine times. And no coach has a better record in BCS Bowl games than Urban Meyer, who is 4-0 all-time.

His .819 win percentage is the 10th-highest all-time among coaches with a minimum of 10 years of experience and leads all active coaches fitting that minimum.

Still Ohio State has a lot of work to do after it finished 3-5 in Big Ten play, the first time since 1999 that they were under .500 in conference play. In Meyer's 10 years as head coach, his teams have never finished below .500 in conference.

So what can Ohio State realistically expect in its first season under Urban Meyer?

In his first season his teams have improved by at least two games at each of his previous three stops. Even more impressive, Meyer's teams have never won fewer than eight games in his first season -- or any season he has coached for that matter.

The Ohio State offense struggled this season, ranking in the bottom half of the conference in scoring offense and total offense. The Buckeyes had the fifth-worst passing offense in the FBS, averaging just 124 yards per game through the air.

However Ohio State does return talented freshman Braxton Miller who threw 11 touchdowns compared to just four interceptions, while also rushing for more than 100 yards in three of his final four games.


Meyer has engineered an offensive turnaround everywhere he's been, however it usually takes a year for his system to thrive. In his first year at a new school Meyer's teams have ranked right around 60th in total offense. However in the second year at the school, Meyer's teams have averaged out to be about 10th among FBS teams in total offense.

In fact it is likely 2013 and not 2012 in which the Buckeyes will be back in BCS prominence. Urban Meyer went undefeated in his second season at Utah and won his first National Championship in his second season at Florida.

And for good measure, Ohio State's last National Championship came in Jim Tressel's second season at the helm, while the Buckeyes' first National Championship in 1942 came in Paul Brown's second season as well.

Certainly I am trying to push buttons here, isnt that what we do as rivals? Where is your wisdom behind posts from guys like JoeyV, USN etc. who are only trying to bait people and enflame? You can't pick and choose who you pass it on too.

FWIW I think Urban was a great hire. I know him a little bit better then most of you because I was at the school where he came up. He will be great for the good OSU fans and just make the arrogant THE ohio state university crew that much worse.

I think that Luke Fickell is making an awful decision to stay on board. Those things rarely work out. Go to another school and be a DC or head on to be a Head guy at a smaller school.

My 2 favorite teams are Michigan and whoever is playing OSU.

JK, Michigan is not really my favorite team but you know who my favorite team is and you are just baiting me so that you can say that they are not really rivals and they are not on that level.

Why should he leave now? He is Buckeye through and through. He is not ready to be a HC yet. Being a DC at another program would be at best a lateral move as OSU is one of the elite programs in the nation. I would say the only move that would make sense right now would be if the DC position at Alabama opened up.

Stay where you are, not uproot your family, and learn under one of the best head coaches in the game for a few years until another HC job opens up. Then when Urban retires, come back.

actually, I have no idea who your favorite team is.


Anyway, yes thank you for proving my point. We aren't "rivals" as you tried to use above to excuse your behavior. You're nothing more than a troll.

I've never understood how a person who works at Ohio State, and is married to an Ohio State alum, makes so much effort to hate them. Not root for them? Sure, but you're behavior is just plain sad.

I root for Bowling green actually. And the reason I hate the Buckeyes is because their fans are so belittling to MAC schools. Also, living in Columbus it's completely overwhelming. The worst of the fans are the loudest and they have ruined it for me. I came to Cbus as an OSU fan and was immediately turned off. Would probably be the same for any major program I went to where I was not a fan though. Buckeye fans are noted nationally for being pretty bad, but its not like there is a real scientific study you can do. My biggest problem is that the school I root for gets dismissed by the fan base that I am ingrained in so it makes me hate that program. Also the defense of Tressell has been pretty laughable and how quickly the fans turn on guys like Pryor and Clarrett although they love them while they are here.

I think its a really difficult dynamic to go from the HC to an assistant in the same program. Even if he was just an interim guy. i think he is absolutely ready to be a HC somewhere but won't get a chance at a bigger BCS school quite yet. A DC at another BCS school is a good fit because then he won't be under the Urban shadow.

You know you are not allowed to post personal information you find on facebook or other places on here. It's just not something that is kosher and you have been told not to do it.

You are trolling, you are the one enflaming this post by making it go off topic, I am not going to dive into these pissing matches we tend to get into. I am sure you will be contacted.

I just came in to give a little good natured ribbing for someone who does not like OSU, the same way you guys don't like Michigan. I think Urban is the perfect hire for the program and they will be outstanding, and that saddens me.

I didn't find out on Facebook, and no one has told me not to do anything. I don't know why you continue to be embarassed by the fact that you have affiliations to OSU.

lol I"m not hurt. I didn't even bother to respond to it. But again, don't play the fool. Now stop ruining the thread. As old said, if you can't contribute constructively to an OSU conversation, which you've yet to show you can, don't bother posting in an OSU thread.

My guess is they just get 2012. I get the feeling that the NCAA does not think OSU handled the situation well nor showed much remorse for it.
