Cavalcade of Whimsy: The Wild, Crazy, Historic Start For All The New Coaches

They rebuild Death Stars, don’t they? 

Ohio State, Urban Meyer, Maryland. That’s all anyone wanted to talk about in August, and I was so instantly over it.

It’s not that I wasn’t outraged. It’s not that I didn’t care. It’s that I knew exactly what the result was going to be.

Ball gets kicked off. No one cares.

Nothing stops.

Ole Miss was punished by the NCAA. No bowls, lots of penalties, and … 2-0 start with one of the nation’s most exciting offenses.

Maryland went through a nightmare, fired a trainer, is investigating things, and … 2-0 start with a win over Texas.

Penn State was the biggest disaster of all disasters seven years ago, but it still won 53 games in just over six seasons since, won a Big Ten title, made a Rose Bowl appearance, and won a Fiesta Bowl … 2-0 with a team just good enough to be in the CFP chase.

And then there’s Ohio State.

The program endured a brutal national finger-wagging and a few sternly-worded articles … and the 2018 team is totally awesome.

It’s a breathtaking offensive juggernaut, it’s almost certainly going to beat TCU, and then Meyer comes back to what’s going to be a 100,000-strong hero’s welcome – and probably a contract extension – just before a 55-point win over Tulane.

Nothing stops.
