I don't know why everyone is taking a win against Michigan as something that should happen, even at home; they're ranked in the top 30 on kenpom. I hope to beat them and think that they'll have issues with OSU's big men, but it's far from a high confidence level.

I agree with analysis about MSU, but Nate Silver did some research with TV markets and fanbases about four or five years back and estimated that Clemson was the biggest fanbase in the ACC, significantly larger than FSU. This was before FSU rose to the top so I'm sure that difference has shrunk since the study was performed, but the two fanbases are at least comparable.

I'd guess the conflict with NYE and the fact that OSU (and other huge fanbases like Texas, ND, Michigan) was out made the majority of the difference.

For anyone to whom this applies; CampusParc can only act on your ticket if your vehicle is registered with OSU. I never had an OSU parking pass, and CampusParc has no means of enforcement other than politely asking you to pay at the time of ticketing, unless your plates and tags are on record with the school.

The way I think of it is if the kid wasn't shooting at a high percentage and he wasn't earning himself play time at a high level, and he may be thinking about himself more than how he can benefit the team, then im glad he took himself out of the equation and made room for someone who can contribute.

Says a lot about where he was on the board at DB; he was recruited hard as a prospect who was ranked lower and committed to another school when almost all of the staff's top offers were still available.

Comment 12 Oct 2015

Yeah why would he want to throw harder and farther, right?

Comment 12 Oct 2015

Yeah MSU has a pretty colorful recent history with possible steroid use

It doesnt even have to be an OSU shirt, honestly, just wear something black. We all already know that the blue hairs in AA will be oblvious, let's not embarass ourselves through the rest of the stadium.

One factor that should be considered, however, is the fact that TCU is losing several key starters on their defense. Though not as extreme as the difference Johnny Manziel's Heisman season and the next one, he will likely not benefit from turnovers and field position nearly as much as he did last season. TCU, as a whole, will not be percieved as dominant in the same sense as last year, and I think that hurts Boykin's Heisman odds.

One of the techs for my high school band marched Scouts at some point in the early 2000s and I have a few HS friends that are somewhere in the process of aging out of Phantom currently. Regrettably I've never made it out to the DCI finals but I attended the WGI world championships in Dayton a few times, which was fantastic.

This really brings me back. Grew up idolizing SCV and Phantom Regiment, considered trying to get a spot in the Bluecoats or Glassmen, but never ended up going out.

You can't? If I'm a recruit and I'm choosing between Penn State and another program (not OSU necessarily) and Franklin gives me the whole spiel- good school, program on the upswing- oh, and by the way we can give you 2000 bucks more to blow at bars/parties/restaurants/etc. than our rivals, I'm listening. Money talks for these kids
