Spielman is a great commentator and doesn't mind wearing his Buckeye pride on his sleeve.

Only problem is that this would greatly affect recruiting.  It would help schools in big markets like LA or NY or Chicago and hurt the land-grant schools which are in the middle of nowhere.  A player could easily make more money in a big market by appearing in commercials, etc. in a big market than they could in a small market.

Edit.  Mark beat me to it.

Attack the practice, not the person.  Not his fault that he and his agent were able to get those bonuses.  I'm sure other schools have similar style contracts; they just don't win as often.  Go Bucks!

Whatever comes of the NCAA and the O'Bannon case, etc., I hope non-revenue sports are still able to give scholarships for their student-athletes.  Takes a lot of dedication even if not many are watching.

Here is a thought.  For past Photoshop Phridays, the winners often were the ones who submitted early on, even if they may not have been the best.  Could we have a thread to submit them (say by midnight Phriday) and then open another thread where voting takes place?  That way each submission has an equal shot at obtaining votes.

I laugh LITERALLY every time I hear "Go damn it Donald" come out of Peyton Manning's mouth.

Aaron Craft has finally joined Twitter. Get your faint on, young ladies.

Men are allowed to faint as well.  He is quite dreamy.

But how would you know to type this without reading at least part of it.  On a related note, I over-analyze everything.
