I haven't even started looking yet for a pair for me and the girl, but at least I've got an outrageously priced hotel lined up.

Master's students don't get free tutoring, free food, free clothing, free everything. Athletes do. Master's students get "paid" to do research. Athletes "dont get paid." 

These "stipends" don't go for the basics, they go for maximizing the shoe closet.

I'm not 100% sure, because this is only based on a tweet from Joe Schad, but if it is the cost of attendance scholarship then it is not directly affecting their education - it is affecting their ability to go buy chipotle every night or scout for the freshest pair of Jordans. 

These are bonus scholarships that are tacked on by athletics departments, especially UCs, that are for well above the actual amount of room and board. It means the athlete cashes the check, pockets the leftovers, and then does whatever the hell they want. Yes, it basically is paying players. I know UC does it, not sure if Ohio State does or other institutions do to such a systemic degree. 

This won't hurt their education, but instead be like a tax for screwing up.

If it wasn't on apple music I'd love to listen to it. Dre has always produced great beats, and had some great ghost writers do his lyrics, so I'm excited for it.

In 2006 we had Clinton. 

Hands down the worst public speech I have ever heard a President (former or otherwise) give. Close to all time worst speech I've ever heard. When he came in, most people stood up to applaud. When he walked out, around 10 people clapped. It was THAT bad. 

Name doesn't mean shit. It only means you have a five second story to tell your kids about how you graduated with so-and-so speaking. 

In 2006 Clinton sucked. But when Archie took the podium immediately after, the crowd roared back to life, and he gave one hell of a speech. Be happy with what you have, and the fact that you are graduating with 10k other people. 

I do feel sorry for the fact you'll have to listen to President Drake though. The man looks like he barely has a pulse. Long live Gordon Gee!

Why are they honored? Because they win. 

What does UC win in football? Nothing. 
What do the Bengals win? They haven't won a single playoff game under Marvin Lewis. 

And no, Ohio State moved the game to Columbus to fit more fans and make more money, which they paid to UC. 
The game was moved at the behest of UC because the stadium was going to be UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

Big name commits are great, but I'm more hyped about the 3* that have been made into tremendous performers. Coaching is way more important than "closing" a big name.
