The fact that a coach that took a team with a losing record and then went undefeated wasn't COTY indicates how much of a ******* joke the B1G awards are. It's like one big PC every body gets a trophy circle jerk.
To be fair, the times he has won it weren't undeserving and Iowa wasn't mediocre. It is a joke sweatervest never won one, though. And no one was going to reward Meyer while OSU was on probation, so I don't really see why you are complaining. You really couldn't see that coming? Plus, you had talent and underwhelmed by going .500 and losing a bowl game last year, let's not make it out like you had 3 wins and no talent before Meyer...
And I actually really like Ferentz and have no real qualms with his philosophies for the most part (other than never giving anyone but upperclassmen playing time). I just think so much of his coaching hinges on his coordinators*, and I have little to no confidence in our current coordinators.
*I know this can be said about most every staff, but KF really isn't an offensive or defensive coach, so I think he's more of a manager that lets his staff call things and gives the approval.
