Love it.

Also love that he is staying home with his family too, rather than participate in the NFL's dog & pony show. It is so terrible when they keep panning to the guy who was "supposed" to be drafted already, but waits awkwardly in the waiting area. Not that Malik will be waiting, just in general it happens every year.

Sweeet! My daughter's HS coach played for the Buckeyes, and she was just telling me the team  was "hopefully" getting a top-notch local player soon. Guess she was in the know...

Congrats Kallie, and welcome to the family!

Go Bucks!

Congrats on a great career #33, always been hard-working, classy player. Hopefully he will hang aropund the program and teach these guys how it's done. Never hurts to get advice from our last Butkus Award winner.

Dr. Drake is good, actually. And his paymasters will reward him later today.

Drake has lasted longer than I thought he would. He has done an admirable job, all things considered, but I don't think he holds much power. The Ohio State University is a corporation now, and Drake is the figurehead leader, but the real decisions are made by the financial wizards (think more Sauron than Gandalf here) behind the curtain & the BoT.

I cannot speak for to the women's situation, but it is definitely the issue for the men. I know someone who works for the program, and he/she said some of the kids that come in to the program just want to start or get heavy playing time right away & when they don't, their answer is to quit/leave. It's a time-honored problem in any sport, but for some reason this generation has far less patience for the process. Personally, I think a lot of it has to do with social media. Everything they do is "liked" or "followed", and the egos just get way too big too manage. Throw in parents who do not help the situation (hello Mr. Ball), and it's just a toxic soup the coaches have to deal with. Every situation is different of course, but there is definitely a common theme across the board here.

He has speed & moves to spare. I don't know if he will supplant Weber, but he will lock down the #2 spot. Plus he just has a boss football name.

Go Bucks!
