Cleveland Plain Dealer reported yesterday that there are 2 situations involving 2 players that are likely affecting their status going forward. http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2016/02/how_ohio_state_will_get_to_its.html#incart_river_mobileshort_index Seems like it could be a predetermined situation already. Makes it seem like it could be an academic, legal/conduct, or an eligibility issue.

Enrolling in January preserves a year of eligibility.  So he has 5 seasons to play 4 starting for the 2017 season instead of the 2016 season. Sorry.  I meant for this to be above.  Mods, feel free to delete this one.

I use facts differently under your definition. I don't need hard evidence to meet my standard to say a player getting a hardship like you referenced. I see it as such. Fact, Player X sustained a serious injury, and has multiple of such now Fact. Player X has injuries when considered as reoccurring injuries, have low full recovery rates. Fact. We don't know Player Xs status going forward I see this as fair to say, Player X is a candidate for a hardship as injuries derailed his career. That's not baseless speculation. It's probably a fair statement to say Player X must show he is getting healthy and on the path to be healthy again so he can be cleared by the medical staff. I am perfectly fine talking about topics where a reasonable person can assert situations where the facts can be asserted with reasonable statements of potential outcomes. There's a line of it being baseless. I find recruiting to be a hypocritical topic around here. It bothers me that some people here have no problems with media based entities with the intentions of profiting off kids for information. I can tell you with first hand information that it reaches harassment quickly. I have an issue with people thinking it's perfectly OK to just expect information and target players. We all know that's wrong. Knox was a victim to this. Being a recruit and a player at a big time program means being in the public eye. Scrutiny is part of it and people watch. I think we forget that we do this to kids who range from 14-18 years old and do this to they graduate college

You completely missed my point and made it a parenting issue than a big picture issue. It's about the sheer concept of kids being harassed by fans and media about their academic future. It's out-of control and a huge business. Primarily on rumors and such. The whole concept is exactly speculation. Even with ratings and such. Yet this isn't exactly talked about around here. But getting so upset about someone's athletic career ending sue to injury is such a taboo subject. I see a lot of hypocrisy on the subject. I think baseless speculation is wrong and just making rumors is too. But things that can be asserted with facts are another and fair to discuss.

They have official duties as reporters and as members of the media. He may have been asked not to share. The university is the source of the control thus the owners of the information. Their reputations as credentialed media is different than you and I sitting here asking a question. They don't want to be the source of misinformation and rumors as credentialed media. It's simple journalistic standards

There's a major difference saying player X will take a medical hardship and can't play anymore without facts. Versus saying, Player X sustained a serious injury and hasn't played in 2 seasons so he's a candidate for a hardship.

How do you think a 16 year old kid's parents feel when recruiting websites and media outlets are texting and calling their kids all hours of the day asking them where they are going to school. It's perfectly fair to wonder if a player sustained a serious injury that has been unable to play multiple seasons will be able to play again. That's not insider information or irrational.

Yeah he did.  Bryant was the glue and leader of that defense.  No doubt that was a big part of the problem. 

Comment 30 Jan 2016

Safety play was part of the problem.  Admittingly even Meyer said that Von Bell should have played more as a freshman. 

The Cover 3 scheme was ineffective and the defensive backs were consistently out of position.  Part of it was scheme and coaching.  But once Bryant went down, the lack of depth showed.

Meyer recruits HS qbs and moves them around. He did it at Florida. Joe Haden was a HS qb as was Jalin Marshall. Meyer is also using Gibson as a decoy and just keeping that door open. It's coach speak. I'm fine with it. Gibson knows where he stands with Meyer and the staff and that's all that matters.

Based on past spring practices, someone will break out of the WR group. Based on the talent and the numbers, someone will rise up and take the opportunity. Noah Brown did it last year. Dixon and Campbell are strong bets, especially if they are healthy. Heck, even James Clark is a possibility. He got some reps late in the season. He finally seems to be healthy.
Comment 29 Jan 2016
What I find worse is these WRs and QBs are constantly asking for flags for any contact on the play. There's expectation that hitting the QB or a hand on a WR is interference. To me, this is a major issue in the Nfl that hurts the game.
