Do you have any evidence of that at all? I would find that shocking. I really don't think it's happening. Few athletic department are even self-sufficient. It would be unfathomable to think that any are using athletic department revenue to fund the rest of the university.

Anyway... yes, the salaries should be increased. It is difficult for the B1G schools that sponsor more sports to compete on things like the salaries of assistant coaches. They need to find a way though.

I live in DC but was raised in Cleveland and went to college at Denison. My parents and siblings have all left the state. I'm a huge OSU fan and also pay attention to how St Eds is doing. It's pretty obvious to me that I do this to connect more with where I'm from. It would not surprise me if many of the people on here live out of state.

This is crazy! Nebraska made a big mistake. It's not a great job because there is not a lot of talent in the area. The program does have great history and fan support, but obviously that cuts both ways because those fans may demand your firing after a 9 win season.

I'm also totally obsessed with this and hope he turns up safe. The only new news I've seen lately is that he had a fight with his girlfriend before he left. That plus lingering concussion symptoms, and I'm assuming alcohol, is a terrible mix. I really hope he pulls through this and is able to make it to safety.

I love his nasty streak. The opposition looks comically small (of course) but he dominates them and goes out of his way to cause pain and humiliation. I like it. That style of play gives your team an edge and can help turn momentum. He will probably get a couple unnecessary roughness calls every year but that's fine with me.

Comment 27 Nov 2014

This improvements for OSU are pretty shocking. If it was like that 15 years ago then I might have gone there. I knew a lot of guys who were mediocre students and went there in the early 2000s. If I knew that they couldn't get in then I would have considered it. Of course, reputations change well after the academic reality.

Oh my God. My thoughts are with him and the family. This story has been told many times before. I've been that guy myself. Hopefully he turns up. We don't have many details yet but I immediately thought of the Denison student who didn't make it home from the bar last winter. I hope to God it's nothing like that.

You forgot about Shaun Crawford from St. Eds. He was a big loss to Michigan and I still hope OSU ends up with him somehow. He's a great tackler and extremely fast. He has Dontre Wilson speed.

As for Michigan, I would like them to be just a little bit better but I've got a lot of Michigan fans in family so I don't want them getting too uppity. I don't want to see more than 8 wins any year.

I wanted to name my son William Tecumseh. My wife wasn't having it. I'm a big fan of his.

Comment 14 Nov 2014

Ginn is a great recruiter and perhaps mentor, but not a great football coach. His teams always play super sloppy. I don't imagine the people of Massilon would enjoy watching his teams. Also, has Ginn ever coached a white kid? There would be some huge cultural differences. I think it would be bad. Ginn has a good thing going. Also, why doesn't Massillon have separate coach and AD positions? Is it just so they can pay the coach more?

Pam St. John has been the head coach of Michigan's cheer team for 31 years. She makes $50k per year. Dave Brandon's secretary makes $107k. 

Edit: AND she has won back to back National Championships.

I second what Denny said. Maryland has a nice campus but College Park is underwhelming. Go into DC. There are a bunch of great neighborhoods.

For a wild night do Adams Morgan, clubs around 14th & K NW or the bars and clubs just south of Dupont Circle around Connecticut and M St NW. 

For a classy night go to north or Dupont Circle, Wiodly Park or Eastern Market.

For a fun night got to the 14th St Corridor between P St NW and U St, H St NE between 11th and 15th, or U St NW between 9th and 15th.

For a top notch craft beer bar check out Meridian Pint in Columbia Heights. Great beer will not be hard to find in DC. 

Whatever you do, don't go to Georgetown. It's shit. All bros and stuffy people there. I would avoid it. Virginia also sucks. Tons of bros there and it has no soul.

I'll be in 4B. My friends and I bought season tickets just so we could go to this game.

Comment 31 Aug 2014

St. Eds killed them. The mercy rule went into effect in the 3rd quarter because they were up 30. There was a running clock after that. The breakout player in the game was St Eds junior RB Cole Gest. He ran for 194 yards and 3 touchdowns on 11 carries. It looks like he beat out Andrew Dowell for the starting running back spot. His only offer right now is from Toledo but that will likely change. 5-9 185 lbs. If he grows an inch or two then he will be a very big recruit.

Comment 31 Aug 2014

Yeah and the QB is a 3 star dual threat.

Locksley, the stud Gilman QB, hasn't thrown much because St. Eds has a couple of 4 star cornerbacks. Nobody is open.
