Re: 2011 Ohio State Football - What is next?
It looks like it's going to happen. You have to give tOSU credit for selling him on the program despite the possible NCAA sanctions. He's the best free agent coach out there and they snapped him up.
That said, I'm not sure he's going to have any more success than Tressel did. Sure, he's going to get all the great Ohio recruits but you could get Barney Fife as head coach and they would get the top Ohio recruits. Whether he can get recruits from below the Mason-Dixon and the success he has with those - and other - recruits will define his success. But to achieve that success he will have to go one better than Tressel and win those BCS championship games. His offense may look better than Tressel's but unless he wins those BCS championship games he's not going to be judged any better than Tressel.
