    These kinds of statements just baffle me. I realize people think he did outstanding at OSU, given what he had to work with, but when I look at his records there, it just confirms to me that Mike Riley, as nice of a guy as he is, and as decent of a human being as he is, just is not a good football coach....and in some areas, seems absolutely clueless to me. Given the current state of the program, you just don't make such asinine comments as these.

    People put way too much stock into what coaches say in press conferences. Riley's not going to take a flame thrower to the players or assistants.

    Agreed. Not sure what anyone expects him to say.

    I'm not putting stock into what he's saying....obviously. I'm also not expecting him to throw players and assistants under the bus. Did you even read the article? It's just dumb to say that there's no issues, except in games. Plenty of other things to say instead of that.

    Funny thing, most of what sets off posters here that I can tell is what is said in press conferences. :rolleyes:

    I didn't read the article. I listened to the press conference though and it sounded a lot more to me like a man admitting that the results on the field are subpar. I think you're looking for crap to bitch about because you're angry that the team sucks. Most fans do this.

    The thing I take away from the last couple years is Mike Riley is simply used to losing. He thinks it's all part of playing the game and this NU team has taken on that mentality as well. It just doesn't seem to bother them much when they lose.

    I don't have a problem with it, actually. I think he's saying that it's a good group of kids, haven't been in trouble, but things haven't worked out on Saturdays.

    Maybe, and you're looking for posts to bitch about. Most posters do this.

    Lol. Unwad your panties. I fully admit I was having the same reaction on Saturday during and after the game.

    I agree with this. We spent almost 3 years listening to posters who put too much stock into what he said in his press conferences.

    If there is one thing that I've taken away from Riley's tenure it's that press conference coach speak doesn't mean crap. It rarely ever does for any coach, but Riley reinforced that for me.

    I think you are looking at crap to bitch about with other posters because you are angry Mike Riley is failing. Most Riley apologists do this.
