And signed a 7 year deal. OSU will have to replace Matta long before Miller is available - unless they fire him... in which case, we may not be interested in an underperforming HC. 

Time to look toward other possibilities in succeeding Matta, whenever that may be.

I don't know why Alford would leave UCLA right now for IU. I get that he's an alum, but he's not a "great" coach (imo) and he is set up for a long run of success where he is at a high profile West coast power house program that is already competing at a Final Four level, and so much talent flowing into the program. He's got two more Ball brothers on the guest list already. The pub around those kids, the way the play the game, and the success of the oldest one, will only help in recruiting other talent. 

What does he have at IU, except memories?

If bet that OSU has/is having discussions about the future of his role in repressing the university publicly. They have plenty of other options that won't be recurring stories on TMZ or connected to immature behaviors and embarassing situations like Elliott. 

OSU is highly image conscious, and even if he is completely innocent of all accusations (for those of you in the "can't prove anything" crowd) made over the past year or so, they don't want to be associated with that kind of publicity.

I guess the consternation over failing to land Pocic (Ohio native) was ultimately unnecessary, thanks to Pat. Though it would have been nice to have the two together on OSU's OL last season. But these things will be worked out with reps and game experience, I believe.

They recruit low income students for diversity, and additionally even admit students that are.neither academically prepared nor qualified for the same reasons. It's crazy, but true. Most public universities and many prestigious private institutions are doing the same these days.

Well, a fourth round pick is generally expected to contribute in the NFL, and teams don't usually take fliers that "early" in the draft because there is a lot of quality in that range. The middle rounds are where NFL teams are truly built, and where solid starters are found annually by every team. 

I know they hVe a new coach in Buffalo, but you don't dump a high upside 4th round pick without first finding out whether he can play - even bad guys and cancerous personalities seem to get a shot on the field - if they have enough talent. One game is not a legitimate litmus test for a QB, Regardless of statistics. Neither is a season spent practicing with 2nd/3rd string reps. Cardale will get his shot.

I'm not knocking Bentley. He was one hell of a player whose career was cut short by association with Cleveland. He was a great Buckeye.  And clearly he has had success in his business as a trainer and OL coach. He'd be a great asset, but he'd be a fool to leave that situation for a college job. 

Stud is also a hell of a OL coach, and can recruit too. OSU's OL is in good hands with him I believe.

As a kid, my favorite player was Ozzie Newsome. Because of that, I've always hated that OSU ignores it's TEs, when as a child I could see the clear leverage in simply utilizing that position.
