He was heavily thought to be the starting RB come fall, at least until Mike Weber would have supplanted him. Starting RB at tOSU is basically a star player, no matter his past performances. Glad Urban was firm and made sure a projected starter didn't get let off the hook.
People, not just football players, get internships (and full-time jobs for that matter) through connections all the time. At every campus recruiting fair you go to you see alumni coming back to represent their company and recruit students from their alma mater. I fail to see how this is any different. Additionally, there are specific recruiting fairs for the College of Business, the College of Engineering, etc., so it's not like it's unreasonable to have a recruiting fair set up by the football program for the football team, especially given that these guys also actually have desirable qualities for hiring such as leadership, work ethic, etc.
I wish my network of references included Urban Meyer.
Edit: Nevermind, I read wrong.
For sure. I noticed it then, but didn't complain because at least it was benefitting us. I feel like an enabler.
DJ, you're more than welcome to crash at my place in downtown CLE. I'm just subletting for the summer while I'm on internship, so I don't have a couch, but if you have an air mattress or are cool with a sleeping bag I have the floor space.
The Warriors regularly get away with grabs and moving screens. I was glad they finally called Varejao for yanking TT down from behind on a rebound, which I've seen him do at least 5 times this series.
holy shit, his battery was at 100%, that's gotta be a first
I like these. Not enough to buy one, but I think they're cool for one game. I'm interested to see which helmets they pair with them.
EDIT: I see this is already being discussed: http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-football/2016/06/71224/ohio-state-s-alternate-helmet-for-2016-could-reportedly-be-a-leather-one
That's just taking the black uniform debate to a whole new level
No, it will never end.
I hope Michael Thompson noticed how well our last star from St. Louis did for himself in the scarlet and gray
Agreed. The only possible situation where hack-a-curry should even be considered is if he's shooting like 80%+ from 3 and taking a high volume of shots.
I loved the black alternates last year, since they kept the same design as the traditional uniforms but just changed the colors around. I think it would be awesome if they did the same in scarlet, but with either grey pants/scarlet jersey/scarlet helmet or scarlet pants/grey jersey/scarlet helmet. Scarlet pants/grey jersey/traditional grey helmet would be cool too I would think
Well that will happen when you order a Natty Light.
What was the context for Urban Meyer saying he wasn't a fan of Ferris Bueller?
I am currently 18 or 19
You're not sure??
E-swift and T-Swift?
We estimate that the SEC generated a staggering $347 million in TV money last year. Nearly $300 million of that total came from ESPN between rights fees and the conference’s share of SEC Network profits. The conference-specific network wasn’t projected to generate a profit until its third year, but it well exceeded expectations in its first nine months, kicking off around $112 million for the SEC.
Do the expenses covered in this report include money the athletics department gave to the university, as has happened in previous years?
Also, I wonder what the $75,470 in revenue from "school funds" is for, although it does also say this amount was transferred back to the university.
I probably should have been more clear. As Hetuck mentions, Ohio State does not charge students an "athletics fee" that would go to the athletics department along with their tuition and fees, but does charge students for tickets to football and men's basketball games. At least when I was there a few years ago, all other sporting events were free with a student ID.
Ohio State students have to pay for football tickets outside of their student fees.
Ohio State, Penn State and Nebraska were the only three schools in the conference to not subsidize their athletics department.
Purdue also did not subsidize it's athletic department, according to the table.
What the hell are Alabama and Florida doing subsidizing their athletic departments millions of dollars while they're making ~$15MM and ~$20MM profit, respectively?
It's not like VT is a slouch academically. Their engineering school is very, very good. UVA has the better professional programs, for sure, but VT has higher research expenditures, which is a key component in ranking graduate programs.
The only possible advantage can be making the fielders hesitate for a second because they don't know what's happening, I would imagine.
