Not a Buckeye legend but my Mom was friends with a woman named Barb, who married Willie Lanier. When we visited Richmond once, she went to dinner with them while I stayed home with my aunt and uncle. After dinner she brought Willie and his wife back and he told my Mom that I should never play football because it can cause all kinds of leg injuries. My football career was over before it even got started. Thanks, Willie..

Was in an elevator with Johnson in Siebert Hall. Rumor was he was dating someone in our dorm. Later saw him driving an old Eagle sedan. Looked hilarious with the seat cranked to the back. I think I recall him being kind of nerdy.

You can go down the rabbit hole on LinkedIn. Lots of Buckeyes turned medical salespeople and many at Stryker, especially.

While there is extra spending cap, there is something called an income statement, which he's probably keeping an eye on. I don't know the profitability of the Browns but just because you have room to spend it, doesn't mean you can or should.

Of course, you can get into a debate about whether if you put a better product on the field, you'll see the result in the profits, etc. but he might have to put up his own money to get there.

It's easier to find a job when you have job than when you're unemployed. Nice of Meyer to keep him around until he lands somewhere. Too bad we can't trade draft picks for him or something.

I think JT needs to evaluate his future as a potential coach, not an NFL player and determine the best move for him. Whether it's learning the coaching business from Urban or taking a shot with UT or another school.

Coaching has greater longevity, better on the noggin and opens up more opportunities for him than the NFLwould, whether it's coaching peewee football or working in the NFL.

It's funny how programs don't realize their mistake and demote a coach to their previous position, where they excelled, instead of axing them from the HC role entirely. There might be bad blood but with the right kind of leader, that can be dealt with or let the HC make that decision.

I agree. Why would he go from one program that won't play for a championship to another program that most likely will never be able to play for a championship? Ambitious people like him don't like those kinds of barriers. I bet he feels like he's done his time as a lower tier head coach

I'm seeing about $40 profit per ticket right now and that's very conservative. Granted, the tickets are only worth what they sell for but that's the bottom price per ticket in the section that I bought

Could we be reaching the point in the supply/demand curve where people say the product on the field and the atmosphere is not good enough to not go somewhere else like a bar or home? Ticket prices are getting up there so you're locking out a solid piece of fanbase. I might be generalizing but the well-heeled ticket buyers might be the quieter fans overall.
