Love this thread and interested mostly in what fans of OOC teams think of the coaches.
Find it very interesting that of all the coaches Meyer seems the most up and down...
I never said tOSU hasn't had their bad games, but you can't overlook that this was a sub .500 team last year, so 4-0 is 4-0. UCF was a quality win. That's a good team. The UAB games wasn't a great one for sure, but that's a blocked punt from being a 3 TD+ win as well.
Wisconsin has just looked bad. There's no way around that. There have been times in which tOSU has looked impressive though and I don't think you can say the same for Wisconsin.
And no, I haven't DV'd you. I'm an upvoter anyways. Here's one for you, BTW.
Danny Hope thanks you for only using this season in rankings.
That's pretty fair overall. I think the rankings would have to be adjusted in fairly significant ways if you used the whole of each coach's career at HC.
As for O'Brien...he's improving and I'm confident he'll be several spots higher by the end of the year. We'll have to see though.
I am sure he does. If you did look at the career, of course BB, BH, MD, and UM are the top 4, but if you just look at what they've done this year, UM is the only one that has met expectations.
I agree with you on O'Brien. If he can keep the ship afloat and keep any sort of excitement around that program over the next 5+ years, he is going to be outstanding, IMO. If they would have pulled off either of the Ohio (good loss actually) or UVA (not as good as a loss now) games, I think an argument could be made for being top 3.
I have always felt that McGloin was going to get it together and have a serviceable senior year, but he has been a huge positive so far and the B1G schedule isn't quite as daunting as it once seemed. 6 wins is very possible whereas 2 weeks ago, many of us were looking at maybe 3 or 4 at best. I would also say that the team can play with everyone left on the schedule as well, but I think tOSU has too much and going to Nebraska will be extremely tough.
Where are the Hog fans? I wanna hear how j'Ohn L S'mith is doing.
Can we move Beckman to about 15th?
