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.

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

For 2014-15:

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.

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, 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?

The only possible advantage can be making the fielders hesitate for a second because they don't know what's happening, I would imagine.
