Milestone 229 is solid. They have a great brunch menu. I think they are owned by the same people that run Columbus Brewing Company (the restaurant not the brewery) so if you are familiar with CBC, the food/prices are very similar.
Can someone please translate for me? Not too well versed in twitter lingo.
Based off this, OSU is a lock for the tournament at an 8 seed at the worst and the B1G could get anywhere from 5-7 teams in.
Might be hard to save any as they currently have the highest rent prices in the country, topping NYC, LA and Wash DC.
Penn State is a national powerhouse. They might have gone through a few dark years in the late 1990s and early 2000s but anytime a competent coach arrives at a national powerhouse, they are going to be able to draw top recruits. Something similar happened at Alabama. They went through a lull and had zero BCS success prior to Nick Saban arriving and now they are the envy of every college football program.
Did the mock draft change? I don't see roby on any of the 4
I believe Jason said elsewhere in this thread that the number of new comments on articles and buckshots is coming with the next update which I am happy about as you mentioned how difficult it is to see where the conversations are flowing.
I'm sorry but saying KU doesn't have a huge history of big men is absurd. I disagree with him that OSU doesn't as Thad has put 4-5 big men in the league but KU might have the BEST history of big men. Starting with Wilt back in the 60s and going through today with Withey, Thomas Robinson, the Morris twins, Cole Aldrich, Darrell Arthur, Nick Collison, Drew Gooden just off the top of my head. Plus Self has turned Embiid into the #1 prospect for the NBA draft.
You are also assuming OSU returns to the B1G 10 title game which is definitely not a given.
Wow what a joke of a franchise. Can't seem to do anything right. Why let these guys fire a coach, then fire them a month later?

I had the same issue on Google Chrome. Refreshing fixed it though. Also in the comments, the font changes every once in a while. Some of the comments will be the same font then it will get larger and darker for later comments. Again, once I refreshed, the issue went away.
I like how he states Consensus Top 5 class. Dig at ESPN for rating it so much lower than the rest of the recruiting sites?
What is that thing growing on Emmitt's chin?
Man the ease at which he throws those 40-50 yard bombs on a rope is reminiscent of Vick. Kid will tear it up wherever he decides to play football.!
But also very very few college athletes warrant salaries that are higher than the cost of a scholarship. And those that do, do go on to make millions of dollars in the pros
That's actually a really good example. I bet athletes live a much better life than a physician going through residency and there isn't this loud voice to raise their compensation. Thanks for the insight and changing my mind!
I am not too familiar with Title IX and who passed it and and the legality of what I am about to suggest but maybe its time to change Title IX? Maybe exclude football and basketball from those calculations?
So if I paid you in something that you considered worthless (not that I think an education is worthless but I'm sure some players derive zero benefit from it) and offered you no other options, you think that's a fair exchange of services? Now that's MIND BOGGLING
Yes but if you didn't like what the market offered you, you would have the opportunity to leave and work for another company, offering your skills for a higher salary.
These students are capped with how much they can "earn" in the value of a scholarship. They have no negotiating power because they can't go to another school and say how much would you pay me to be your starting quarterback. The answer would be, the value of a scholarship.
Its actually only the 107 coaches whose salary was listed in the USA Today and its for the 2007 football season (a bit dated and without the crazy contracts we are seeing now... LOL Bert making $5.16 million?).
And I think everyone realizes that football supports non-revenue sports. The question is, Should it? If you are the quarterback of the OSU Buckeyes, why should your likeness and athletic contributions fund a fencing players scholarship? That doesn't seem fair to me.
So are tennis players and they don't provide anywhere near the revenue that football players do. The argument is that these athletes that are creating millions of dollars for their school and should see some of that profit.
And who says a free education is what the players want? I think it's a pretty lazy argument to say these players are already paid when no one asks the players how they would like to be paid. That would be like my boss telling me that my salary is $75,000 paid in Ramen noodles. Wow great, $75,000! But what I could really use is $75,000 in cash so I can pay my rent, buy a car, eat food other than Ramen, etc. Maybe some players do value the education they are getting and they would have spent the $75K on tuition and room & board but some would also rather get that in cash.
I think most athletes who come to OSU to play football, come here because of the superior coaches, training facilities, athletic support, and lifestyle of an OSU football player (king of the city) rather than the degree they might get 4 years down the road.
Why do we have to pay athletes for all sports? Why can't we just pay the athletes who are actually generating the revenue (i.e. football and basketball)?
Wasn't Bert's excuse for leaving Wisconsin so that he could pay his asst. coaches so they wouldn't get poached by the big dogs? Looks like that issue followed him to the SEC.
Where is the neither option?
