Is this the first time Glenville has gotten into trouble? They've been recruiting hard for years. The transfers have been absolutely ridiculous. It was particularly out of hand like 10 years ago. I do think Ginn recruited Ray Small away from St. Eds. I think he left after one semester. That probably wasn't good for Ray long term.

It is ridiculous that you can hospitalize someone with a brain injury due to your negligence and you get basically no punishment. I'm sure Schiano was broken up about it and is very remorseful but I don't think the punishment fits the crime. JT Barrett got punished more for driving drunk but not hurting anyone than Schiano did for this. That doesn't seem right.

Minor correction here...

It is better to call this a collision rather than an "accident". "Accident" implies that no one is at fault. 

Cars kill tens of thousands of people each year. There's no reason to assume the cyclist was at fault. Giving the early hour this was probably someone biking into work. This wasn't a drunk college kid or crazy pizza delivery guy.

Good for St Ed's. It's a little weird how they are back to back state champs and spent some time at #1 in the nation last year but only have 1 player on OSU's roster and you never even hear about him. Meanwhile Ed's has redshirt freshmen starting for Notre Dame and MSU and Harbaugh hired their head coach at Michigan. I know they don't have any highly ranked guys this year but hopefully the Buckeyes build a stronger relationship there.

I think you mean that the Chargers want offset language and Bosa is trying to get rid of it. This could be worth a few million dollars. He's smart to fight it. I'm just basing this off of reading another article. Here it is: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82a72b56/article/whats-the-holdup-for-top-picks-getting-signed-offset-language

Oh this is terrible for all involved. I feel so sorry for his family and his friends who were likely there and witnessed it. I'm sure it will haunt them the rest of their lives.

When I was in college I was hiking around Lake Geneva, outside Madison, WI. The guys I was with wanted to swim across the lake. One had been a college swimmer. I went along, over confident in my own abilities. I hadn't swam for distance ever. It didn't look far but it was a mile across at that spot and I had been drinking heavily the night before. My legs cramped up in the middle and I was saved by a fisherman. I imagine this may have been a similar case only he wasn't lucky enough to have someone there to rescue him.

This doesn't sound like a Ponzi scheme. It sounds like a bad investment with a guy who got paid a fee for getting them to invest. This actually doesn't sound that unusual. Even retirement account managers get fees. The problem was that the company wasn't worthy of the investment.

I know we like to think of great OSU athletes as also being great people but Troy is not a good dude. I knew him in high school and don't believe that a person's essential character changes that much. I saw him alienate everyone black and white and eventually get kicked out for a sucker punch in a basketball game that knocked a guy out cold. Then during his Heisman run Troy claimed that the high school was racist and that's why he left and that he hit the kid from Toledo St John's because he used the N word. Both were lies but made it into news stories unchecked. I hate how the tOSU has been trotting him out as some sort of poor man's Archie Griffin. He's not a good guy and it's not wise for the university to raise his profile.

I also get a bad feeling with how he arrived at FNL and transferring schools. I don't know if that's him or parents but I see this ending badly. Maybe he comes to OSU and maybe he doesn't but I don't see him starting at this point.

Harbaugh is clearly on the autism spectrum. That's not a good thing or a bad thing but it is very unusual for a head coach.

I was playing rugby in college and went to give someone my signature stiff arm. The tackler shifted as the last minute and my thumb and his face made contact at a weird angle. The thumb took the force of the collision and rather than bending backward it instead went back into the palm of my hand. It was a mess. The lower knuckle went back into the fleshy part. It was just a dislocation but I would have been better off if I broke it. 12 years later it is still screwed up. 3 labral tears and shoulder surgery was nowhere near as bad. 

Also, I do not recommend the hospital in Lima. That place was terrible. I should have had my teamates drive me to Cleveland.

Who is buying it? Is it just Auburn fans looking to troll Bama? I'm thinking of the guys at SEC media days with the Auburn shorts and OSU shirts and hats...
