I love Buckeye football. LOVE IT. However, I am more proud of what The Ohio State University accomplishes as a university. In recent years, Ohio State has become more impressive academically. I am confident this trend will continue.
Because we need off season distraction, I offer the following question: If you could transform Ohio State into Stanford (decent football team that every now and then is dangerous but not quite elite + elite academics) would you? Why or Why not?
All Ohio State traditions would remain the same. This isn't about Stanford per say. Rather, it is a question of trade offs. Would you be willing to trade football success for academic success?
