The criteria for having one's name in the rafters is: National player of the year; three time first team all-american.

None of the mentioned qualify by the defined criteria. 

Sully is the only one lately who could have put his name up there if he wanted to. 

Havilcek doesn't meet either criteria but who's to say?....Maybe a great pro career helps? Or nothing is in stone?

Maybe the powers to be could massage the criteria, since players don't stay as long?

Craft and Oden were National defensive players of the year, in theory they could be honored with a banner if OSU wanted to massage the rules a little bit. OSU could put their name up there along with the words "DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR"  especially since coaches are always preaching Defense and 'defense wins games.'  What better way to preach than to honor defensive players of the year? 

Anyone else feel that is a legitimate reason to put their name up there?

People that say coaches leave osu because of the pay, kill me. I have never heard one coach say they move on because of pay. Nor have I heard an assistant coach say, I'm not going to osu because of their pay. 

Just stupid and lazy rhetoric.

I don't know if Ginn runs 40's or not but he's not listed in the top 50 of all time. Gridironstuds.com explains it in far more depth than I ever could on here. Galloway checks in around no. 6 all-time with a 4.18 forty. He explains how times differentiate so I won't rehash it here. But the times aren't all that realistic which is what we all knew already, right? He does explain how a sprinter that still holds the sixty record would have the equivalent of a 3.93 forty using the same criteria. 

I don't know the wr sprinter you are referencing but the BIG outdoor 100 yard record is 9.4 and is owned by Owens. So it is very unlikely an osu wr ran a 9.2 100. As far as a 9.2 100 that would be around 10.0 in meters. For elite sprinters you add around .8 secs. For Bolt you would take around .7 off of his world record 9.58 which would put him around 8.9 in the 100 yard dash. That is explained on speedendurance.com.

He can only do what you are describing if he did not take an official visit to osu. That is called blue shirting. Besides no official visit a player cannot have received any financial aid either, prior to accepting a scholarship. A blueshirt can practice from day one, he is just like a walk-on since he is paying his own way the first semester. 

So, recruiting gurus-did chrisman take an official to osu-anyone?

I think you are forgetting about blue shirts. A player can pay his own way for the first semester and then receive a scholarship at the end of fall camp and it is counted toward the following year's allotment. The player can't have taken an official visit to his school of choice or received any financial aid prior to accepting the scholarship. 

Also greyshirts can practice after the first semester out of high school and they can practice immediately if they go to a community college, while not burning a year of eligibility.
