FWIW, as a Head Coach Brady Hoke went 4-8 his first year (at Ball State), followed by 2-9, 4-7, and 5-7, before his first winning season as a Head Coach, a 7-6 season.

2017, not 2016. 2017 is when the new contracts, with Fox and ESPN splitting coverage of football, begin

In situations like this, it's generally good to follow the advice of Mark Twain:

"Never argue with a fool, they will drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience."

Very happy for Nate, and pulling for him and the team to win the gold.

As for the gray sleeve stripes, I recall hearing that with the cut of todays jerseys they could not do it blah blah blah.

Yes that was the (weak) explanation when the stripe pattern changed back from the gray stripes to the current stripes under Tressel in 2006, which was, of course, proven wrong by your example of Iowa, as well as the jerseys worn by Ohio State in the CFP and a couple of times last year.

The gray stripe pattern was reintroduced when Cooper became coach in 1988 and maintained for the first few seasons under Tressel, before changing for the 2006 season.

The buckeyes current jerseys are a nod to some jerseys from the 70s I believe

When Earle Bruce became head coach, the uniforms were changed to a stripe pattern that is like what is used on the jerseys today. One difference is that the road jerseys did not have gray in the stripes like they do now.

Since ou bought with the intention of using them, but cannot, and since you are not looking to gouge fans, why don't you just sell them for your costs (Ii.e. face value plus the ticketmaster fees)?

That's the best way to not gouge fans.  You're not out anything and you help out a fellow Buckeye.

The best approach is to let a story sort itself out, and all facts to come out, before aligning oneself to either side. 

It seems that with the instant news reporting, folks feel the need to align themselves one way or another immediately.

As a former Marine I lost my security clearance and had to appeal it which cost more money I didn't have

Very odd that you would lose a clearance solely over reporting 1 domestic violence charge.
