bleacherreport.com tell of NCAA decision "Ohio State sought and received a waiver from the NCAA that allows it to have two football coaching staffs at the same time: one under Luke Fickell to coach the Buckeyes in their upcoming bowl game and another led by incoming coach Urban Meyer that only handles recruiting.

Athletic director Gene Smith called the split staffs "normal in some transitions."

One guy commented "Thank you Big Brother"

I, too, have mixed feelings about the hire. Do I think he'll be successful? Yes, I do. However, we are just coming out of a "scandal" with the NCAA and with the cheating issues and the arrest issues that Meyer's players had at UF- I'm worried. I feel like hiring him screams "lack of institutional control" and if we were going to hire a coach whose players were arrest over 30 times in 3 years but wins games and national championships, we could've just kept Tressel. I would've much rather tried to get Dantonio from MSU. But now that he's hired, I'll support him and hope that he doesn't repeat what happened at UF (I mean the scandals, not the winning)

Urban is a born and bred Buckeye and even when he was at Florida, he said he always dreamed of following in Woody Hayes' footsteps by being the head coach at OSU. I guess you really can take the man out of the Buckeye (State) but you can't take the Buckeye out of the man.

Urban Meyer: “I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to return to Ohio State. This University and the State of Ohio have enormous meaning to me. My duty is to ensure that Ohio State’s football program reflects and enhances the academic mission of the institution. I am part of it, I believe in it, and I will live it.”

With what DUCTILLITE72 said..I'll take urban over what we currently have any day. Overall, Urban has more roots in Ohio so maybe his loyalties will be greater here than at UF.

I have mixed feelings about Urban Meyer being the OSU coach. He is definitely an opportunist. If you look at his history, he goes to schools that have the players to win and stays there until they have a losing season or the potential for a losing season. The drama he created at the University of Florida was ridiculous. He "retired" for health reasons only to come back a few months later. Then he retired to "spend more time with his family" only to take the ESPN job a month later. Is he a good coach? Yes. Is he a good recruiter? No. All of his success has been with his predecessors recruits. I think he will be the next coach. I've thought that since he left UF. And of course, I hope he's a success because he will be coaching the BUCKEYES!!!!!

If you watched the Penn State game, you probably saw the rumor on the Bottom Line during the broadcast that Meyer has been offered/accepted the head football coaching position at Ohio State. What do you think?

Here is a link to the story on Yahoo Sports: rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?
