  1. I remember the 1st 2 years Coach Meyer was here and the back end was awful, there were some who wanted to throw out Kerry Coombs along with Everett Withers. Now we’re looking at Coombs as being MAYBE the best cornerbacks coach Ohio State has had. If he can keep churning out the NFL DBs he might make it there.

  2. I admire what Meyer has done at OSU. I question some of his coaching hires though (Everett Withers, Tim Beck). Meyer let the Tim Beck debacle go on too long and it cost us a national championship in 2015. The 2015 team, with all that NFL talent, should have been one of the top all time teams in college football history. Withers defense was a joke. Of course Meyer has made some great coaching hires as well. Meyer needs to make coaching changes quicker instead of letting bad defenses and bad offenses continue when there are no signs of improvement. Otherwise, couldn’t be happier with coach Meyer. Go Bucks!

    1. I think the players share plenty of blame too. Remember all of the suspensions?
