DJ.  Just so you know, I know of a family who eats prime rib for Thanksgiving.

I'm not sure about the out-of-state push.  Unless there's an imbalance in in-state and out-of-state tuition (including state subsidies), I'm not sure how out-of-state gives more money.

If not test "scores" (sic), what else?  Prediction is hard (read: almost impossible), so how else would you admit students?  I think of the record test scores as a running joke, because I see the undergrads at Ohio State, and the quality that is claimed is not there.  Does that mean we should only admit Ohio students?  I doubt they are better than out-of-state and international students.  If anything, I've found that international students are harder workers, so maybe that's who we should admit more of.

I'm pretty confused that so many support Fickell.  I guess this just shows how fair-weather people are when it comes to Fickell.

When we were looking to hire a new (co-)DC, Durkin was the popular choice, and people were willing to drop him when they found out that he coached LBs as well.  Durkin seems like a guy you want coaching your players, and he can be a true DC, whereas I have my questions about whether Fickell can.  However, since we have Ash turning things around and putting a consistent scheme in place, I don't think Fickell is a bad choice.

Spence is going, but since he is no longer eligible, I don't think this counts as going early.

Washington has the measurables to go, but he should stay another year since it's his first largely at DT.

Decker is the only other guy who has done well for two years, but I don't see him going early.

Those are words of a pessimist.  Maybe you should put Pessimist in your screen name!

I'm right with Johnny.  Reminding me of Matt Millen was the perfect way to make me sad, if that's what you were going for.
