I think they already do that. I know most schools (including Ohio State) bring in everyone from compliance people to the FBI to talk to players and coaches about the rules and guidelines so there is a clear understanding of what you can and can't do. It doesn't matter. If a player or coach who is inclined to cheat thinks the reward is greater than the risk of getting caught, then they will break the rules.

I think Harris ends up at Kentucky. Don't know why, I just do. As far as the "Crystal Ball" goes. Ashley is a young lady who works as a waitress at Dare Devil's pizza near Nags Head on the OBX. Her dad is a OSU grad and she's a big fan as well. The information I get from Ashley is just as accurate as the "Crystal Ball"

Now that we've signed up all of the cable companies in the NYC and DC areas, do we still have time to tell Rutgers and Maryland to hit the road?

That photo a couple days ago of Joe Germaine in his classic Ohio State uniform makes me sad when I realize we're going to have to look at that chromish helmet with blue-turquoise Buckeye Leaves for our big games again this year.

When I was a kid, I snuck/sneaked into Ohio Stadium and ran on the field pretending to be Archie Griffin vs Michigan.

"Fight the Team" is better than "Buckeye Battle Cry"

When I was dating my wife, who was a Michigan grad, I would buy her a present so after the game, if Ohio State won, she wouldn't feel so bad. Then the Cooper years came and not only didn't she buy me a present, she would laugh at me and rub the loss in.

The thing about the drive in the '97 Rose Bowl is that forever Ohio State was the victim of these last minute drives. I don't know how many big games we've lost over the years due to the other team scoring the winning touchdown with seconds to go. We turned the tables this time. After ASU scored on the scramble by Plummer, Germaine led the team methodically down field and not only won it for us, but put a dagger in ASU as well. Elation all around.

I like football as much as the next guy, but no one cares about a football game in June. By the looks of the photo, there were just a couple hundred people at best in a high school stadium so is the interest really there? If there are some people who want the game to be played, then play the game. But don't expect the top players to come out in droves for a totally meaningless exhibition game.

"I like Gene Smith." What???  He's bungled a hell of a lot more than tat gate. How about firing a great young hockey coach Mark Osiecki because he wouldn't give a scholarship to a local weatherman's son (who didn't deserve it). How about being completely on board with not only putting Ohio State and Michigan in different divisions, but was fully prepared to move that special game to sometime in October. How about signing a apparel agreement with Nike that gives them the right to make us look like a bunch of rodeo clowns for our biggest games. I could literally go on and on, but I think you get the point.

I get depressed every time you do a Rutgers in the B1G story.

Joey Galloway, along with Terry Glenn were the two most dynamic receivers Ohio State has ever had. Galloway was so fast, but was hampered somewhat because it seemed every game he was wide open deep and Bob Hoying couldn't get him the ball. Even in the NFL, Galloway spent most of his career with average QB's and we never got to see the real talent Joey Galloway was.

I got to tell you, all of these camps are giving me a headache. I know it's a new era, but when I went to high school, the players all played their senior season, then went on their trips in December and January before they made their (un) announced choice. Everybody seemed to pick a school without any problem.

You're only half right on Cus D'Amato. All fighters, including Mike Tyson had to sign their lives away to Don King in order just to get a fight. Cus D'amato was fired by Tyson several fights in to his professional career with the prodding of King. King used reprehensible tactics including race to put a wedge between Tyson and D'Amato because King realized what he had in Tyson. Tyson would become King's cash cow over the next decade and with King's organization swindling, stealing, or any definition you can find to steal Tyson's money. This never would have happened if D'Amato were still in the picture so he had to go.

I'll echo some of the previous opinions in that I really thought the way-to-bright red end zones bordered on tacky. I was hoping they would go back to the green grass end zones with the gray lettering. I just thought it had a classy and dignified look to it.

I'm 85% in love with the band and I know criticism is nothing short of treason, but I think they play sometimes just to hear themselves play. We don't need to hear something after every fricken play. That shortened version of Le Regiment is meaningless and to be frank, after the tenth time hearing it, somewhat irritating to listen to.
