"Meyer has won at least eight games in the first season of all four of his head-coaching stops: Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and Ohio State. He took over at Ohio State following a 6-7 season -- the Buckeyes' most losses since 1897 -- but went 12-0 in 2012 even though the team was banned from postseason play.

"Everybody wanted me to say Jim Tressel left the cupboard bare," Meyer told CBSsports.com. "If I heard any assistant coach [say that], they'd be gone. You're done. Those are your players. I hear TV guys [say], 'Wait until they get their own players in there.' They're our players. What do you mean 'their players?' The minute you sign a contract, they're your players. You didn't choose me, I chose you. You're mine, absolutely."

Meyer on Wednesday told reporters in Columbus that he always advises his assistants who move on to new jobs to be complimentary about their new situations.

"Never talk as if those players aren't your players," he said."'


Absolutely. Brock destroyed this program when he came in and basically told everyone it would take a few years to build a program that would win. He had the talent to win when he got here, but he led them to a collapse of epic proportions.

Thank goodness Rocco is taking a different approach. Although Rocco recognized that the roster was unbalanced, and brought some of his own talented players in, Rocco has talked about winning from the get go. That is the kind of coach the players want to play for...not some grumpy guy who tells everyone he can't win with the players he has (and they go out and have his best season despite the coaching).

Rocco can win because Rocco knows how to win.

I agree 100%...Winners win and if I was the Texas fan base and the players on the roster I would not be happy with those comments.

This summarizes things very nicely.

Nail on the head Cluck but he didn't have team to win. What he did was take a slow mediocre team and made it worse....

When Brock was first hired, I held onto some hope that any coaching change could be good. But him blaming the players was the first thing that convinced me he could not be a good coach.

Joe, we're going to meet and talk football and drink some beers! Then we are going to talk about all of the people we both know.

Looking forward to it!
