Same thing for automotive technicians. Quite the reversal in the last 5 years. The good ones are calling it quits, and the potential replacements left entry level work for better entry level pay elsewhere. 

Comment 28 Sep 2016

We're already negative spots, so I would say any of the most recent 5 commitments took his spot. 

Comment 26 Sep 2016

Purdue not being last. You could make an (wrong) argument that Wisconsin could be first on resume. 

Comment 26 Sep 2016

That tattoo makes this worse for me. I know he chose it, but it still adds a little sympathy. 

Comment 26 Sep 2016

This is all stupid. This situation should never happen. Don't take the commitment if you aren't going to honor it. We don't know the details, and probably never will, but it's certainly not a good look. Recruiting may be a business, but it's a people business. No matter what business you're in, it's never a good idea to burn bridges.

It makes me sick to my stomach every time I see or hear "The Ohio State". The back of the white helmet is another example.  It's not about the state, it's about the school. The Ohio State University.

I'm the rare OSU fan who actually likes Finebaum. He panders some, but it's obvious when he does. I think he does a good job of not overreacting to small sample sizes. For an SEC guy, he pretty much calls it as he sees it. 

Comment 20 Sep 2016

Probably. It's almost a joke, but also a little true. The B1G always had OSU, but we lost our fair share of big games, too. 

Comment 19 Sep 2016

If you wanted to do the work, you could probably calculate the number of times a punter drops it inside the 20 when the distance to the goal line is his average punting distance or less. Then use average punting distance and average net punt to formulate a "punter efficiency rating". It is 2016. Why should baseball players get all the cool stats. 

Comment 19 Sep 2016

They've been down for a while, but have been propped up by overrated teams. It seems like the PAC 12 isn't far behind. 

Comment 10 Sep 2016

Thanks to the show Unsolved Mysteries, I was afraid of the fictional old man neighbor who was actually dead in real life. He played with the kid in the daylight and was a creepy ghost that laid in the girls bed at night, as an invisible, but not weightless being. The indentation in the sheets that they showed still makes me cringe.

Ignorance is no excuse. It's usually better to have some excuse other than "the bookstore clerk told us to". They're probably lucky it's only one game. They could've unknowingly broken any number of rules that would've cost them more time.
