Hopefully this gives him time to heal properly. Too many NFL players rush back after an ACL injury. Not everyone is Adrian Peterson. You have to spend a lot of time strengthening the muscles around the knee.

Hopefully he gets back to 100%. He's one of my favorite Buckeye WRs of all time.

I don't see Urban leaving until he's just tired of football, or Shelley wants him to retire.

There aren't any CFB jobs or even NFL jobs that would be a better destination than TOSU for Urban. And TOSU would be hard-pressed to find a better coach. There isn't one.

We fans need to remember that there are only 4 teams that make the playoffs. We're not going to make it every year. Enjoy the good times with one of the greatest coaches of all time while we have him..

I don't know what happened exactly, but for the university itself to take such drastic action on a star-studded student-athlete, it had to be a serious breach of the code of conduct.

Maybe the punishment seems too harsh to many, but the rules are the rules.

I just hope TG learns from all of this and gets back on track.with his life on and off the field.

^This.

The reason our football team is perennially one of the best is because we don't tolerate mediocrity. Other programs' fans may tolerate 4 loss football regular seasons, but we won't.

The same applies to the basketball program. Fans are vocally upset, and rightfully so. There is no good reason we can't make the NCAA tournament every year, apart from recruiting screwups. It seems like Matta is battling a diminishing national perception of the program and he's grasping at straws.

Top notch recruits are a magnet, but development is the key. Teams like Georgia and Auburn get great classes but they don't really get the most out of them.

What is special about TOSU and Bama is that they get great recruits and put a lot of them in the NFL. And TOSU has the added advantage of being a superior school to those in the SEC. Recruits' Moms care about that.
