Choices Let it burn. After 8 games?! No chance. Vote Comments Show All Comments sthrnbcky 27 Oct 2010, 5:10 pm we may not deserve it, but there is still an outside chance at a BCS championship bid (albeit ludicrous). if he cleans up the special teams or defense, let him play. yoderdame 27 Oct 2010, 11:40 pm All of the facts need to be explained to him and if he doesn't want to do it, how could you make him? 1) a MNC is very, very unlikely. 2) could he help solidify special teams, an injury depleted LB corp and maybe help get to a BCS game? sure, if a lot of pieces fall into place outside of OSU's control. But #2 is not guaranteed even if he does play. The coaching staff making him burn his redshirt at this point if he doesn't want to do it just seems irresponsible, anti-Tressel like and will leave a thin group of LB's even thinner in 2012.
