We are somewhere in the top 7.  I don't know where to put us.  We are all pretty damn equal.  An 8-team playoff sure seems logical.

It could indirectly go towards academic programs in that the huge revenue from football goes to the athletic department which gives scholarships to smaller sports like wrestling or cross country.  These athletes potentially would not come to OSU without that scholarship.

No mention of the Basketbucks DJ?  This team will be fun to watch.  They will have ups and downs but damn do they love to get the ball and shoot.  Just like a former fan favorite.

This team will be both great and frustrating to watch.  Hopefully it is more often great going forward. We seem to have several guys who play like Deshaun Thomas did his freshman year.  Get the ball and shoot.  Hopefully this team will gel and make the extra pass for a better shot because I doubt we can keep up the 65% shooting.  Also the zone D was often frustrating to watch.  When it works, it is amazing, but when it fails, it fails badly.

Illinois is renovating their basketball arena, formerly Assembly Hall, now called the State Farm Center.  It would have been cheaper to build a brand new arena, but the major donors insisted that they renovate the current building instead.

As for the football team, I think the facilities are fine; it's just the coaching staff that is awful.
