    It's not like they are tearing it up against the West either. They are 4-10 against the West since Locksley took over.

    You have to be good enough in a spread scheme to throw for big numbers, but not good enough to leave early for the NFL, and probably make enough mistakes to so that your mediocre team is regularly playing from behind. It's a tough needle to thread.

    They seem to start 6-0, 5-1 every year, then proceed to lose the rest of their games.

    They also seem to play Michigan and/or Ohio State tough frequently before losing to Northwestern or Illinois or someone shitty a week later.

    Maryland and Locksley aren’t really doing that bad considering it’s Maryland. They’ve had some decent non con wins and he consistently gets them to bowl games. Can’t really ask for much more at Maryland. I think the expanded big ten and removal of divisions helps them quite a bit.

    It's kind of Kentucky-like, except Kentucky under Stoops has played in the shitty SEC division while Maryland has been stuck in the good B1G division so they can't have that random 10-win season Stoops has had twice.

    In his entire UK career, he has 2 wins against SEC teams who finish the season with a winning conference record. He definitely has staked his career on beating bad noncon teams and capitalizing on a weak SEC East.

    I agree, and this is where Iowa would be if we played in the East, 8-4 most years. Its just that everyone hypes them up at week 4 cause they are putting up 40 on Toledo and Boston college, then they come crashing back.

    He has a predominately African American staff and coaches a school within a 200 mile radius of tons of high school talent.

    Those two things set Locksley/Maryland apart from a lot of other schools.

    He’s going to benefit from no divisions.

    If we start doing some 9:00 Eastern 8:00 Central starts, that’s not too bad.

    There are a lot of 7:30 or 8:00 Eastern games that are out of control by 9:00 or 9:30, so having a staggered start on NBC/FOX/CBS might work well.

    I don't understand some of the OSU media, alums and fans who have these loud takes about the game like it's some sort of recipe that needs specific ingredients in order to win. It's a football game. There's not much else to "get" about it.

    Yes, but this is hot take season following a loss where everyone has inane suggestions for what will work next time.

    Personally, my recommended cure all is to stop throwing interceptions.

    A segment of their fanbase were sold on the idea that the previous two years didn’t happen and now they’re stuck grieving 3 losses at once. I think that’s a big part of the noise.

    Honestly I’d want in-game defensive adjustments if I was an OSU fan. Make it more of a chess match instead of seeing how the opponent is attacking you and sticking with preventing how Michigan attacked you the year before
