OSU suffered possibly their worst loss in years this afternoon. They fell at the hands of a subpar Purdue team that with the win improves to 2-5. This win snapped a 5 game losing streak for the Boilermakers normally known for their Engineering School and occasionally their hoops team.
I feel as if Terrelle Pryor is having his college career ruined. He is stuck playing for a man who is stuck in 1972..aka the man who rocks the sweater vest every week. Jim, it is 2009. The spread and innovative offensive tactics have taken over the college game. Conservative play does not win titles no matter how talented your team is. Take note from a man just down 71 who wins with less talented players. This loss will probably cost the Buckeyes a Big Ten Title. All I have to say is Jim you better beat Michigan or this will be a horrid offseason of scrutiny for you.
Pryor is a phenomenal athlete. Nobody is taking that way from him. But he may not have the tools to play quarterback at OSU for the old school Jim Tressel. He may just be destined for another season of playing mediocre and depending on solid defensive play to save him every week.
Another coach in South Bend at least hung close with rival USC for the first time in years. But in the end his team could not punch it in and though a receiver slipped on the last play, Notre Dame should have been able to tie this game and send it to OT. Weis will act like he is hurt by this close loss, but at the same time he is relieved that his team came back and competed in this one. The comeback may have secured his job for another year but both him and Tressel are far from Championship caliber coaches at this time. Notre Dame is at the point now where it is okay to just compete against the good teams. Boy have times changed.
Each has loads of 4 and 5 star players on their rosters yet they cannot seem to win the big one..Weis you probably just made the hot seat cold again so congratulations..enjoy South Bend..
Jim Tressel..you make 4.4 million a year..start innovating and coaching with more flash and creativity or at least lose the sweater vest.
Stay tuned for Edition 35.
