One thing is for certain, they aren't cutting commercials. The only real solution to reduce time of games is in the running of the clock. I think the clock should keep running after an incompletion, actually I wonder why it stops. A spike of the football should be a stoppage of time. It doesn't bother me if the clock doesn't stop on first downs, it doesn't in the NFL and they seem to be doing okay. If they want to stop the clock on first downs, and incompletions, do it in the final two minutes of each half. Have an injury timeout- run a commercial. Need video replay- run a commercial. Have no commercials during the last two minutes of either half. Have an allotment of commercials, once it has been met, no more commercials in the fourth quarter. There you go Gene, no charge, but a little credit wouldn't make me mad.

I'm not sure if the athletic dept. has won because of him or in spite of him. One thing that is undeniable, Smith and Gee messed up in their judgement of the NCAA in 2011. Smith was the lead and is ultimately responsible for his decision to not take the 2011 bowl game off the table to appease the ncaa. If national championships in football are important, then the resulting 2012 ban was as bad as it gets. The bucks were 6-3 when the decision had to be made. If I'm making that decision, I leave no chance that the future classes are punished for something they had little, to nothing to do with. I'm putting the ban hammer on the senior class, pure and simple. We'll see how good of an AD he is with his next basketball hire.

It's too bad Matta has to go, but it's long overdue too. Rarely does a coach turn it around once he starts on a downhill path. He's been here long enough to prove or disprove himself, and if I read this right, this is his fifth consecutive downtrend season?  I say offer him a rocking chair, with an admin post in the athletic dept. With what OSU offers, there is no reason a good coach can't compete for a Big title most years. Wisconsin doesn't have elite talent but is seemingly near the top most years, even with their new coach. I hope they don't make Jent interim or permanent, that seems like more of the same old, same old. They need a vibrant coach, with a good track record. My nominee is Brad Stevens, he's proven he can coach at the college level and may well love the Big, I think Indiana was his ideal, but OSU is a sleeping giant with the right coach. Feel free to pass my sentiments along to Gene Smith.

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.
