Ohio State just needs to win out and things will take care of themselves--and all the nonsense the talking heads spew out before the end of the season will be meaningless.

In the photo from above, the facial expressions of the fans in the crowd, to the right of Buck-I-Guy Idiot are great!

This picture of him, in a t-shirt with a picture of himself on it, from his website, promoting himself, says it all...

Football makes money, but as it always noted, the B1G cares about the educational side of it more because it makes more money.

Yes research dollars are in $ billions.  Money from athletics is in $ millions.

I'd like to see Burrell, Gallimore, Baker and Wariboko along with whatever combination of Harris/Gibson/Cager space allows for. 

Comment 13 Oct 2014

Every time I have been there I have stayed well outside of State College. 

Traffic in and out was a mess. 

The fans were, by far, the least hospitable I have experienced in the Big Ten, and I have been to every Big Ten campus (except Rutgers).

The academic side of the Big Ten Conference, the CIC, has a combined ~$9 Billion in research funding.  AAU standing and research dollars are certainly a big part of what is considered by Big Ten schools when looking to expand. 

TV revenues for athletics are in millions of dollars. Research is in billions of dollars.

Comment 09 Oct 2014

Oklahoma and Florida State are not members of the Association of American Universities, which is something the academic side of the Big Ten, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) has wanted.  (Nebraska is not currently in the AAU, but they were when they were accepted to the Big Ten. They were subsequently kicked out of the AAU. I've read that they are going to apply for reinstatement to the AAU soon.).

The CIC conducts a combined $8 Billion in funded research, so what they desire is considered.
