“I’m looking forward to Meyer being the next major conference coach coming to a man’s league and losing when Big 10 season arrives. “

Sparty had a good year, but the bottom line is Sparty is the little brother in his own state.

OSU is a different story. And Meyer has won in 2 places. Meyer had the Utah Utes in the national picture! Then he won in the SEC. No comparison with Rich Rod, who is a jerk. I wish Michigan still had him. :)

Next year will be good, but the 2013, the Buckeyes will be all the way back.

Little brother? Four in a row this year over "big brother" says otherwise. MSU has been Big Ten contenders (as of last weekend of the year) or champs three of the last four seasons, right there with Wisconsin, (minus last year) Ohio State, and sometimes Penn State.

We red-shirted all except one player in the last recruiting class. Most of our line is young and coming back. Our weakness should be a strength next year if they stay healthy. We lose two backup d-tackles, Foreman on offense, and maybe Worthy. Cousins and Cunningham are big losses, but Bell and Baker will be back, and Maxwell is supposed to be real good and will be a redshirt junior.

Meyer is real good when he has his quarterback. Alex Smith and Tim Tebow on the college level make most coaches look great. Tressel won a national title with Craig Krenzel, whom I don't believe even had a 90's era MSU offer. He won big 10 titles with folks like Beanie Wells and Clarett in the backfield, tough defense, and a Wisconsin/Iowa style O-line.

If Meyer can keep Tressel's defense and not have it pansied from his spread offense, he'll be fine. If he weakens their toughness from his spread, OSU will drop a step and be fired in three years Notre Dame style since multiple 8-4 seasons aren't acceptable.
