I suggest we all get over the "Ford is an awful X and O coach." Who, other than MBMs from the OSU boards, have claimed that? I have never read any reputable BB minds stating that. I would think a guy who grew up as a coach's son would have quite a bit of knowledge about how to coach a game. We KNOW that Crews couldn't coach-didn't even have an inbounds play, but what do we really KNOW about Ford's coaching knowledge?
Let's cut this cr@p that he is a poor game coach, until we see it for ourselves , and I'm not suggesting that we will. I don't understand why some on this Board, whose BB knowledge is limited to watching the game from the stands, and having played a few years in our younger days, feel like they are in a position to judge his abilities before we even see him coach.
Calm down. I was only trying to point out that Crews was suppose to be good at X and Os and wasn't so even if Ford is SUPPOSE to be weak in that area it is not the end of the of the world, Read for meaning not one word at a time.
I am not sure what next year will bring. Do I think we will be terrible - no. Do I think we will be better - maybe but by how much. Crews was suppose to be this great X and Os guy but I never saw it. Ford is suppose to be weak in that area - not sure he can do worse then what we saw from Crews. Did the players who stayed like playing for Crews - don't know but if I put myself in their place I might feel a bit more upbeat now. Does this translate into more victories - not necessarily but it can not hurt. I would not be surprised if we played 500 and I would not be surprised if we don't. I prefer to be optimistic and wait to see what the cake looks like when it comes out of the oven.
