    Have they named a new, permanent head coach? Any chance they come after Mullens?

    Okay, so we're back to the UF argument. Urban went 82-9 at OSU (54-4 in the conference) won several conference titles, a national title, and won all 7 times against rival Michigan. He'll end his tenure with a top-10 recruiting class and a Rose Bowl victory.

    Do you think OSU fans will take that? Was it worth it?

    The funny part is they are going to be a bunch of jilted lovers, too. Some of you will be able to commiserate with those Bucknut fans on how bad they had it with Urban Meyer.

    P.S. - The streak against Michigan ends next year. This new coach is going to be a disaster.

            I love great irony. I love the fact that Earle Bruce now gets credit for taking down Ohio State not once but twice, the second time posthumanously

            The FSU game I had completely blocked from my mind.

              Stay as far away from Meyer as possible, and for God's sake, hold onto DM. We got more work to do men...

                I will be very glad when that drama queen is gone from college football. He can be an analyst if he wants. I can always skip the halftime show.

                With that said, I wish him the best for his health. I just wish he would retire quietly and stay off the TV.

                  They will take that if he doesn't come back to coaching but if he returns to ND after a year or so then all of that will be thrown out the window. A coach can come back to the game and still be beloved by former fans if it all seems legitimate, that didn't happen here. If he's coaching at ND in two years then it will be the same thing there.

                      Yep, just like he did when he "retired from UF". But I don't believe for a second he's done. He'll stay "retired" for a year or two then be right back in it. Chump will be fired and SC will hire Meyer, they seem to have an affinity for former gator coaches.

                      So great coach and thankful for the success he gave us on the field but not such a great guy and angry at the black mark he gave the program and the state he left it in.

                      I wonder if he realizes how much Tebow covered for all the criminals and bad dudes on those championship teams.

                        I hated Suckeyes two decades before Creyer coached there and always will.

                          If someone else lead them to missing the playoffs, then everyone would be saying they miss the playoffs because they fired Urban.

                          I'll always thank them for beating ASU in 1996 though.
