as much as i make fun of miami, it's pretty easy to overlook or get used to its obvious deficiencies. it's constantly being judged by its prettier rival. it lacks the cultural amenities and geography of athens but that just makes it easier to do sh!t. guess we'll just go to heuston woods. or disc golf. that's a sweet course. the campus handily thwarts the campus body, the male campus body. as tacky as a majority of its women are, i can't complain too much considering i married one. luckily i knew the rugrats

The roster had big holes and we had a year long of a cadre of remaining upperclassmen that were pouting and throwing a tantrum that the prior staff was no longer there. People have no idea the shenanigans that staff had to deal with by team leaders that first year to get buy in by year 2 (you know, when they won a conference title). Took some guys leaving and some guys growing up to detoxify that locker room.

That will not be an issue on this team. This roster is hungry to finally be led. The limitations on this team are that the prior staff did a crappy job of putting a roster together and coaching up the talent it did have.

I think you're a little easy on Jones for his part in not getting the buy in from those guys. It's a 2 way street... but that roster was far more talented than a 4-8 team despite the depth issues. You could see the talent on display in that Oklahoma game. They had the players to really compete and do big things. The staff never got the buy in and wasn't great at managing games (never was great a managing games, but ultimately got he buy in year 2 and did a solid job).

Not too easy on him. I saw the players acting like spoiled brats first hand in that spring. That locker room was thin and toxic the winter and spring of 2010.

If you recall I was pretty sure that summer that the season was going to be a sh!tshow.

I would agree more with Rath on this one. Butch tried really hard to get buy in and it just didn't work. It took a losing season to snap them out of it. The roster was also incredibly thin at several spots. Receiver corp was very thin with the USC transfer going down in the first game with an ACL tear, DJ Wood with injuries to his shoulder and elbow where he probably shouldn't have been even playing, McClung with a plate in his shoe as a true freshman for his turf toe, and Munchie burning his red shirt to fill in at WR because there were no warm bodies. I remember Wolfe had to play what seemed like every snap on the defensive side and he would just look out of gas.

WUAB TV-43 Cleveland has also been added to the TV syndication. I believe more stations will continue to be added as we get closer.

For those with DirecTV or Verizon Fios, this game will also be carried nationally through ESPN college extra.

FWIW, the start time change is better for us since students can show up to the game after going uptown for day drinking.

Here's what I'm wondering about Fickell. When he was interim head coach he took over a 12-1 team that had a litany of NFL talent. He lost to Purdue and should've lost to Toledo, going 6-7. The next season they went 12-0. I've never heard of another example of someone inheriting that kind of talent doing that poorly, the only comparison I can think of is that guy at Arkansas after Petrino motorcycled himself but even they only won 3 games the next season. And outside of one season at Akron, he's spent 15 of 17 years in his career at a blue blood with nearly unlimited resources and was never trusted to be an independent DC even after being the freakin head coach. The guy is a big name and I don't think the guy will be bad necessarily, but do you really think this guy is the next Kelly when you no longer have a BCS conference like he had?

I think the jury is still out, obviously, but he seems to be hitting all of the right boxes that the previous two coaches lacked on. Keep in mind, I was never a huge fan of Butch.

1) Recruiting Ohio hard. There's so much talent in this area, there is no reason to bring a bunch of kids up from the South to fill your team.
2) Mentality - "If they are keeping score, we want to win" little things like this just ooze confidence and make me want to take a bullet for the guy.
3) Assistant Experience - We actually have a pretty solid list of Assistant coaches, we don't have a grad student running Special Teams for example.

I'm not saying he's going to have us competing for a Natty, but if we are in the running for a league title in the next couple years, it is a success.

The biggest thing lost on a lot of people about his '11 season is that he was in EVERY game and played a tough schedule. I think of all 7 losses only 1 was by more than 7 points, which to me shows that he had some learning to do on pulling those games out (which is understandable given his coaching experience to that point). As many have said, what he has done here so far gives me a ton of hope for the future, and that season definitely isn't the scar people seem to think it was. He was bookended by two national championship winning coaches who have head coached for literal decades, and he's inserted into a ****** situation as a position coach with 8 years of coaching experience. Of course there will be drop-off there.

This roster has a ton of holes is BAD places to have them (O-Line and QBs, kicking game) so I don't expect 8 wins, but I think that given our schedule 5-6 wins this year would be good, and hopefully we'll be able to fill those holes with a full season/off-season cycle.
