It will be announced, at latest, on Sunday.

I know this won't be popular but I just lost a lot of respect for Zeke. Fans make athletes stars. It's bullshit when they can't take the time to sign autographs. 

It goes both ways. Fans need to respect the time/privacy of the players, as well.  Its not just a one-way interaction.

Seems as though it's a decision you have a few years to ponder, given that your child is 2.  Lots will change in the next few years with the game and equipment.

Yes, this game is one of the '6 Day Hold' options that ABC/ESPN can use in a season, meaning they will announce the final decision on a time 6 days before the game.  It will be either at 12:00 or 3:30PM, on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2.

The decision on 12:00 or 3:30 will be announced on Sunday afternoon or Monday morning.

Not crazy.  The network exercised an option that they have to make a decision on this game 6 days before the game. It is called a '6 Day Hold'.  ABC/ESPN can exercise this option a limited number of times each season, and this is one of those. Typically games are announced 12 days (or more) out.

Gene, himself, contacting Meyer, that very well could be true.  "Contacts" of Ohio State or firms hired to contact on behalf of Ohio State are not Gene, himself contacting Meyer. :)

Prepare yourself to be shocked. It will either be a 12:00 or 3:30PM kickoff, most likely 3:30PM.

The Big Ten's night games are selected prior to the start of the season, usually in May, as are the kickoff times of each teams homecoming games.

Here is an article from May, 27 where Gene Smtih is quoted as saying all of Ohio State's night games have been set.

I thought last year during the blowout over Oregon that they would let Collier play a series at the end. I mean, how many times do you get a chance to play in the nc game? Guessing the ncaa would not take his redshirt for it, but even if they did, guessing Collier would have done it if asked.

There is no reason to burn a redshirt for garbage time in the very last game of the season.

I was on a scholarship at an out-of-state school and the condition of the scholarship was that I had to establish residency in the state the first semester, as the scholarship would only cover out-of-state tuition for the first semester.  I established residency by establishing an in-state address, registering to vote in the state, registering my car in the state, and getting driver's license in the state.

It could be that JT (and other out-of-state players) do the same thing. 

If so, this would reduce the scholarship value he would lose.  It is still a big hit, but not as big as if it were out-of-state
