    His roster isn't as good as it was so they're definitely down. JT Barrett is mediocre at best so they'll probably continue this trend until they can get a better QB. This is far from the end though.

        Urbs has definitely got his hands full with Hardnuts and Franklin. He hit the Big 2 and Little 8 at the right time. Getting thumped in the playoffs and now getting thumped at home. Death Stares and the reflux could becoming more of a fixture. Guess this first year coach at OU has nothing to blame on the players. But his days of running the gauntlet in that conference unchallenged are over. And yes, he's a better coach than MacNussy.

          That QB on OSU is simply not that good and Oklahoma has the type of offense that can overcome a great D line if its clicking that day.

          Notre Dame will most likely be looking for a new coach next year...

            It is somewhat different, but good point.

              He was starting two years ago before he got injured then the third stringer (Cardale Jones- the passing QB who is slow afoot) came in and drastically improved the offense. Suckeyes, who had been struggling to score, won a conference and natl championship game with Jones in blowout fashion. Urbs promplty benched his championship QB and went back to the QB keeper offense suckfest offense with JT Barrett.

              Creyer has always been piss poor at Qb talent evaluation.

              What is weird is that he knows how to run a vertical passing offense. We saw it in those two games with Cardale Jones and we saw it with Tebow versus OSU and versus Cincinnati. but he will only do it when he's a huge Underdog and feels like he has no other way to win. at first I blamed it on Dan Mullen but clearly that is wrong.

              Creyer is the best damn ST coordinator in the land, probably the best ever by a long margin, but his offense has always been a massive waste of talent.

              So some coaches can make 2nd half adjustments, I didn't think that was allowed.

              Everytime I read something like this, I can't help but laugh thinking about that spinner play call board that people used to post on another board that basically had plays that said "Tebow left, right or middle and Harvin left, right or middle" Not technologically savvy enough to find it, but thanx for the chuckle. I needed that as I wait for this storm!

                Spurrier OC, Stoops DC, Meyer ST. All we need is a HC and we're set.

                  Spurrier did just fine as HC/OC. Problem solved.

                    The guy's been pulling top 5 classes since he's been at OSU. Shouldn't that be enough? That seems to be the consensus around here.

                    Yeah, I remember seeing some stat about Bammer and Crackumbus having the most blue chippers by a large margin.

                    Hard to complain about lack of talent. He probably has his best RB since Percy. Not sure what to think.

                    Edit: 63 blue chippers for Suckeyes per this: http://247sports.com/Season/2017-Football/CollegeTeamTalentComposite

                    Fwiw- we have 28. Yeah, Ole Butters has rebuilt the roster.

                      Is he better than the Zook? Zook was on the sidelines of the Packers today. Camera caught him popping pills. Zook vs Cryer

                      Those were the Dazzler "Addazio" days. Where it seemed like every play was a slight variation of the play that came just before it.
