So is anything official yet? I don't feel like going through this whole thing.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
You don't know how bad Roushar was.
It's called paying attention to on-field results & recruiting results over YEARS of time -- not to mention insider contacts, interviews with recruits, players, etc. It doesn't matter what I say here though -- you have clearly already made up your mind and written off the many opinions stating the same thing from folks who have seen this guy in action for a decade. As I said in an earlier post, whether you believe what we tell you or not is pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. What's going to happen is going to happen no matter where you stand, and at that point you will either realize your error in thinking people are just here trolling you guys or you won't. Not a big deal to me either way since Bollman is thankfully not on OSU's staff anymore and he will likely be your problem going forward.
As far as your coaches and administrators giving a "rat's ass" -- clearly they don't. Otherwise they would probably hire better offensive coaches. I don't have a dog in this fight though, so I will simply wish you the best of luck with the situation and move on. Have a good one.
No, nothing is official yet.
I would turn off your computer and walk away!
Dumbest statement i have read all day.... and sadly i work with 2 scUM fans, and a u$c one to boot...
Everyone keeps saying Bollman won an NC. There is a reason why MD is and continues to be more successful than Bollman after the NC. The defense won the championship. I don't know if anyone recalls how bad the offense was besides Maurice Clarett. They barely won games with offense that year.

It's official that he's coming to MSU's staff (according to someone on Purdue's staff) but no word as to his position.
Green, you are missing our points here....and sorry to be intruding on your board here...we couldn't stand him in the tressel years....so we are not going by one poor season. We hated the Vest's offensive conservatism other than the Troy years....sorry to ruffle your feathers. No need to get nasty with us, we are just offering some bantor is all.
So the names most recently associated with our OC search:
I was concerned when I saw Tennessee's 2nd lowest paid coach made close to what Roushar was paid.
Time will tell how Jim Bollman will turn out and what his role will be but for now "Underwhelmed" is my first reaction.
What happened to all the noise Hondo was making about the candidate pool? Ed Warriner was tOSU coach I was hoping to hear relative to an offensive coach, who recruits well and has Midwest ties.
Go Green -
Well said. The rcmb is full of overtly optimistic folk who get offended if you challenge the head coach or the administration in any way shape or form. Thanks for your input. We shall see if this hire impacts whatever momentum those two 11 win season generated. In the meantime,it's time for a Twinkie.
Hondo knows what he's talking about maybe 25% of the time.
Probably assistant head coach/offensive line coach and Staten promoted to Offensive Coordinator/TE coach.
Remember that thread about Drake Harris picking up a tOSU offer and how it went to almost 60 pages with a number of pages of trolling posts deleted? The reason was the same tOSU fans that are here today were posting like crazy in that thread. These guys have no lives.
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
You Won a National Championship and 6 conference titles in 10 years with Bollman...How do you think that all your insider contacts and all the magical info and opinions of fanboys matter... The Bottom line is Bollman was a winner at o$u...
What makes all this even funnier is, The shitty ass decade that you refer too, is the best football o$u has played in 20+ years....
I'm going to think outside the box and say Mark Staten.
Pulling, I think that last statement was over the line. I simply came over to throw out a message about one of our former coaches and was shocked by Dino's hire here...simply wanted to see insider rationale why Bolls was hired, nothing more. I don't usually come over here and I have been very respectful here...but the last comment shows your juvenile behavior and I will leave you guys alone and just wish you wish you well with Bolls. Good luck.
U mad bro? Yeah, u mad, and I would be too if my team hired Bollman...
This is too funny watching all the MSU fans get all defensive about this great hire of theirs. It will be funny to come back to this board halfway through the season to see all of the FIRE BOLLMAN!!! threads.
I think you guys have been very respectful today.
Guinness makes you drop mud.
It looks like you aren't one of the bad ones, you only have 5 posts in this thread in the last say 2 hours. Reading through this train wreck of a thread shows a number of your fellow tOSU fans posting over, and over, and over...Not surprising it is the same one that posted over and over in our Drake Harris thread.
Some of us might be doing the same if someone hired Roushar. That being said, I like this hire if he is not doing the playcalling. Maybe working with his friends will re energize his recruiting as well.

Yeah, we didn't have any problems telling the Arky folks how bad the F'ed up with tCowboy and thanking tSaints for taking Roushar away.
If nothing else, this thread shows just how nuts buckeye fans are.
