I do think it has lost its luster a little bit, but not so much because of the guys you mentioned. To me it has more to do with it being a quarterback/running back award, and guys like Gino Toretta and Jason White winning it.

Ohio does not have twice the population of Michigan. Michigan is one of the most populated states in the country. EDIT Ohio is 7th in population Michigan is 9th

Dr Andrews is very highly thought of in the medical profession.

That point has been brought up before. Surprised it isn't brought up more. If a human had a record that lasted that long in a sport known for cheating, I would be a least a little suspicious. Kinda like like Flo Jo and East Germany female athlete records.

I mentioned it before, numbers are very misleading. Money given back to the university is not included. All 50 public universities in Power 5 conferences were self sufficient according to when you factor in the money the programs give back to the university, which to my understanding falls under expenditures in the chart above. The 31 million profit recorded by Ohio State is after giving money to the OSU library. Every school gives money back to the university whether they are in the black or red according to charts like the one DJ posted.

I see your point, but pretty much every football team, even Akron and Kent make a profit. The non revenue sports are the ones that need subsidized.

Exactly Tmac. As I stated above, the numbers are misleading. Most public Power 5 programs make money.

The numbers are misleading. Most athletic programs even if subsidized give money back to the university in some form, such as OSU giving back to the OSU library. Texas had a 6.9 million profit but doesn't include 9.7 million given to the university. When these gifts back to the school are factored in, all 50 public Power 5 athletic programs were deemed self sufficient. According to the data, OSU at 31 million was the second most profitable program behind Oregon at 83 million. Oregon's revenue includes 95 million in facilities gifts from boosters.
