Pryor… Really?

OSU just lost to Purdue… I’ve already received numerous text about how Tressel should give up playcalling and whatnot…  That wasn’t my problem with the coaching. My problem was leaving Pryor in the game. At one point, he had fumbled 3 times (2 lost) and thrown 2 interceptions… that’s 4 turnovers by one player… and yet Tressel kept putting him back on the field. I said at halftime that Bauserman should start the first series of the second half, then turn it back over to Pryor…

There’s no question that he has ability, but how long can Ohio State keep waiting for that ability to come to fruition?… there are a lot of players at Ohio State who have tremendous ability… Duron Carter is going to be a superstar, but it wouldn’t  be appropriate for Ohio State to thrust him into the #1 receiver role… the same thing should happen with Pryor… Bauserman should get an opportunity… if he excels, then Pryor should sit back and develop during practice rather than losing to one of the worst teams in the Big 10.

In Tressel I Trust

Here in Columbus there has been a crazy amount of backlash against Jim Tressel after the loss to USC, which happened to be the 5th in a row against a top 5 opponent for The Ohio State University.

Before everyone starts jumping the gun and turning on the greatest coach OSU has ever had… let’s take a quick look at his accomplishments. He owns Michigan, which is far and away the most important game for OSU. In 8 years, he’s 7-1 and has played in 3 national championship games. Who could OSU possibly get that would do a better job? I was talking to Smalls last week and he mentioned that if he were Tressel, his quote would be… “I can get Coach Cooper back on phone with one call… is that what you want?”

People have been spoiled with success and have unreasonable expectations. After winning 4 Big 10 championships in a row, people expect more, which is crazy. Tressel graduates players, the team plays hard, recruits well, and is without question, the best coach for the job.

Go Bucks, beat Toledo…
