If Ohio State honors the scholarship to the point the player has earned a degree, then I have absolutely no problem with "cutting" the player. None. Nada. Zilch.
The issue with SEC schools is that they yank the players scholarships or offer scholarships that never truly existed. That is wrong.
The entire point of a scholarship is to pay for you to get your degree. Not for you to play four years, not for you to become a starter, to get your degree.
I have zero problem with this situation regardless of whose decision it was for these guys to leave. These guys earned their degrees, and OSU paid for them as promised.
