I am in favor of athletes receiving a scholarship for the "true cost" of their education, including proper room and board.  Athletes shouldn't be living in Taj Mahal dorms or apartments when I've seen some of the off-campus housing that the average students are subjected to.  BUT, they also shouldn't be going to bed hungry and should be able to eat nutritious meals that will meet the needs of their rigorous workouts.  Perhaps Mr. Napier should be spending more on food than on his body ink.

The more important question is "Was the pig okay with this?"

While I am in favor of the athletes receiving a scholarship for the "true cost" of their education, I would argue that the outbreak of ink on some of their bodies indicates that they already have spending money.  I would also like to put at least some of their stipend in a trust fund that is given to them upon their graduation.  That would be an incentive for them to finish their education and improving the graduation rates for the university and their respective sports.

I can't believe there hasn't been any comments regarding Smith's bonuses.  My naive hope is that he is putting those bonuses in the bank and will hand them over to the rightful owners upon graduation.

Unfortunately I'm thinking along the same lines.  It won't be long; if a pair of Gold Pants don't mean anything to some this won't either and will probably fetch a pretty price.  One thing that might keep them from selling them is their name being so prominent and possibly UFM instilling some Buckeye pride (and maybe a little warning?).

Great job Curt!  In response to USMC's quest for depth, we are also red-shirting a couple kids (Stieber, Jordan,.?) that could feasibly be on the podium THIS year if the coaching staff wasn't building for next year.  We also said goodbye to Tasarri (sp?) that left a hole in the middle weights.

Did anyone notice that ESPiN had our record as 11-1 when they showed the final score?  Hilarious!  They had already marked it up as a loss for the Buckeyes and forgot to change it.

My daughter was one of the jumpers on Monday night.  She and several of her friends had planned to jump on Tuesday but decided to "be rebels" and shun the restrictions.  As a senior she will have something to remember the rest of her life.
