Maybe that's the truth.  Braxton should do what's best for him and his family.  If he can rehab and have a good pro-day to show teams he's worth a 3-4 round pick then hats off to him.  He doesn't owe OSU anymore than he's already given, which is more than most.

I love Abdullah, I'd have no problem with him winning it.

I have an irrational dislike for Hackenberg thanks to the announcers treating him like a 19 year old Joe Montana.  "That ball was underthrown but it was the right read!!  Just outstanding!!"  This must be how other basketball fans felt having to sit through the Craft years.

I think they;re a great idea in theory and could also be used to combat oversigning and unwanted grey/redshirts.  Simply tell the kid they have to be committed to the school for as many years as the scholarship is, but if it's not renewed they are free to transfer without penalty.

The schools aren't going to suddenly decide to divert their BTN slush fund money into improving.  Maybe the conference as a whole could agree that at least some portion has to be "reinvested" back in the programs in forms of coaching or upgrades to facilities.  This would improve the teams as well as make financial sense - a better conference would get a better TV contract in a few years.

I think we all just had too much Kool-Aid, and bought into recruiting rankings and Meyer quotes.  Imagine  I was just some random guy in a bar and bragged to you about my team by saying "We lost our QB, RB, 4 offensive linemen, the receivers haven't been great, our new QB hasn't played since his junior year in high school but he looked cool on highlights and they let freshmen win the Heisman now so he's probably good for 5000 yards and 40 TDs.   Our defense sucked last year and the two best players left for the NFL but there's a new coordinator so they're probably a lockdown unit now."  You'd think (rightly) that I was out of my mind and just being a homer.

All that said, the season isn't lost, as our conference is terrible and no one on the schedule is unbeatable, and Michigan certainly looks worse than us.

"Boy, that VT team, I'll tell you, they're a heck of a good football club.  The one disappointment I have from Saturday was the poor punting in the first quarter.  Really hurt us from a field position perspective."

So relieved we can get back into our normal routine of complaining about the secondary and asking why we can't blitz more.  Though hopefully Bell and Bosa make those complaints outdated this year.
