Reports: Tom Herman Named Houston Head Coach

Well, the day we’d all been fearing is now here… reports indicate that Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman has been offered and has accepted the head coaching job at the University of Houston.

Herman, who’s ties to Texas made him an incredibly strong recruiter in the area, was recently named the Broyles Trophy recipient as the nation’s top assistant coach. His name has been tied to every major job search in the past two years, so it was only a matter of time before he and his family would leave Columbus for the next step in their journey.

Over his three seasons with the Buckeyes, Herman’s offense has broken just about every major university record on that side of the ball. Most impressive was also his work as the Ohio State quarterbacks coach; as you are aware, Herman coached a team with it’s third quarterback to a 59-0 victory over Wisconsin after losing two Heisman candidates at the position in the fall.

Herman’s plans have not been announced yet regarding his participation in the Sugar Bowl prep; we’ll keep you updated as this develops, but it’s expected that he will not leave for Houston fully until the playoff concludes.

Best wishes, Coach Herman… Thank you for your investment at Ohio State! How firm thy friendship…

Wednesday Night Rumble: The Road To Indianapolis

A little bit of thunder mixed with some lightning and whole lot of explosions were the ingredients to a Sparty beat-down in East Lansing on Saturday. Don’t tell me what the score was, we all know what we saw with our own eyes: The Ohio State Buckeyes battled and eventually owned the Michigan State Spartans. It had […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: 111 Decibels

What a thriller in Happy Valley! The Buckeyes “nut up” (Hey, Urban Meyer said it in the post game) and get it done in double overtime to beat the Nittany Lions 31-24 and remain in the College Football Playoff chase. That’s a familiar score for a double OT game. Hmph. We’ll look back, look ahead […]

What Do You Want To See On Saturday? Kent State

Here we go again. Last week’s disappointing loss is behind most of us. Kent State should be the perfect elixir for what allegedly ails the Buckeyes. I say allegedly because OSU has a rebuilt O-line, a QB who wasn’t supposed to play much yet and some new things on defense so it’s going to take […]

Wednesday Night Rumble: Caught In The Undertow

As difficult as you may have imagined it possibly could be, I don’t think anyone expected Saturday nights battle with the Virginia Tech Hokies to go the way it went. Bud Foster’s defense blitzed from the second they walked into the stadium and befuddled the Buckeye offensive line making it look hapless and hopeless a […]

tBBC Preview: Kent State

The #22 Buckeyes  (1-1) host Kent State (0-2) Saturday. Former Buckeye assistant coach Paul Haynes brings the Golden Flashes into Columbus Saturday. Not necessarily to stop a two-game skid, although I guess it’s possible, but more likely to calibrate his team against an Ohio State team that is also trying to find its footing. This will […]

One Fan's Opinion: Past And Future

Here’s some great perspective from our other Bowl Challenge Winner…. Take it away, Troy! I would first of all like to thank Mali and the BBC staff for giving me this opportunity to take up 10 minutes of your life and let my Ohio State favoritism corrupt all of you. I still can’t believe that […]
