From a basketball standpoint, I think this is the right move for OSU. He seems like a great guy and brings good publicity being the First Lady's brother, but his teams rarely competed well. How deep will OSU's pockets run to find a competitive coach? PAC-12 coaching is very much improved across the board with Ernie Kent joining WSU, and although Monty retired from Cal, they got one of the nation's up-and-comers in Martin, while Larry K and Tad are cementing themselves in the conference's new member schools.

He was not hired because he was capable of doing the job. He was given far, far more time than someone else would have been given, I'm glad that they finally had the courage to do what was right instead of what was politically correct. He had too much time and did too little with it.

I figured the usual D-news bloggers couldn't wait to pile on. I think he did have an overall winning record. The team stunk the years prior to his arrival. He instantly got them to respectability. With that said, I understand OSU's point of view. He did a good job in many ways but could not take the program to the next level. This is common with all coaches. He was a well thought of coach before the President was elected and I think deserving of a second chance down the line. I think the hatred for the President seems to go too far with too many people and they see things where there isn't much to be seen.
