Given the history and legacy of certain teams, I have no problem with Nebraska in the top 8. College football didn't start in the year 2000.
Aww. You have crushed my dreams.
The Cleveland Browns can trade the first round pick they got from the Eagles for Bosa. Problem solved
Not to defend Michigan, but their admit rate is still much lower, around 28%, compared to 55% for the good guys. The better metric to use would be yield rates--how many admitted students choose to attend.
As a teacher in New York, our top kids still won't choose Ohio State, unfortunately, if they are looking at public schools--they will choose Cal, UCLA, Michigan, Virginia, Irvine, Wisconsin, Davis and William and Mary over Ohio State
I worry that we rely on so many out-of-state students and international applicants to boost our selectivity, and possibly, our scores.
I don't care much for test scores or rankings, and would like to see us guarantee admission to the 10% of any high schoo in the State of Ohio, like UTexas did, to increase diversity and honor their mission to the State of Texas
I just finished Power and Destiny a book by Jon Meacham about George H.W. Bush. Since Bush never wrote memoirs, this is probably the best we will get into the mind of Bush as he had access to his diaries. It reveals his passion for service and ability to peacefully navigate the fall of the Berlin Wall, collapse of communism and dealings with China. A fantastic read!
Geno's and Pat's are infested by tourists. To get a true cheese steak, go to Dalessandros.
I would also check out the Villanova campus--so gorgeous
Pray for the servers.
Our wide receiver problem in this class is fixed.
Maybe I am a cranky old man who left campus in 2008, but when I think of Ohio State I do not think of drugs, alcohol or football, but instead reflect fondly upon coursework, learning, student service, and relationships I developed with professors. There is still a professor or two I exchange Christmas cards with and one that I talk to on a weekly basis.
Ohio State already has a very strong brand obviously, but it couldn't hurt. Some people are impressed by the fringe benefits and this would be an exceptional fringe benefit.
I also like the idea of Michigan having Jordan and Ohio State having LBJ. Given LeBron's recent comments in SI, it further enhances the rivalry from a marketing perspective.
More power to you, Big Bear. You earned that pay day.
My passion for college football, but not The Ohio State University, is slowly waning. I would much rather see the University hire great researchers and recruit outstanding students than win bowl games.
Missed opportunities on the field. He still earned a college degree in four years.
Who can complain falling behind Stanford? Such a wonderful University. One of the few places I would tell my kids they could go to college over Ohio State.
Nope. The trade was worth it--the whole team brought Cleveland a title. Folks do not get to complain two weeks after winning a title
He will definitely make more than Curry next year!
Just like the Lebron-Sherwin Williams sign, I hope Cleveland fights to save the Mozgov/Mr. Hero sign
The quality of academics and research at Ohio State far outpaces OU. They are not competition. Ohio State should aspire to the academic level of Michigan, UVA, UCLA, Cal, etc, not OU
Glorious. I love this so much.
I don't mean to advertise for another site, but I thought sharing this was appropriate!
From Birm's twitter account:
I cover Ohio State recruiting at http://Landof10.com , an @AJC company.
I grew up in Lorain, an old steel mill town 25 minutes away from Cleveland.
Visiting Cleveland was a treat for us! Most people in northeast Ohio identify as Clevelanders
Cleveland sports are in our DNA. I never lived in Cleveland, yet I am still a Clevelander. The Browns, Indians, and Cavs are what unite the family.
My conversations with my 94 year old grandfather go something like this
Grandpa: How about them Cavaliers?
Me: They are doing well.
Grandpa: That LeBron James is pretty good.
Burn on Big River!
