According to the USA Today, he's required to seek another position in the industry, either coaching or media. His salary would be offset with the buyout over eight years. What it doesn't say is what the other salary has to be. Say Illinois hires him for $550K. The balance comes from LSU.
This reminds me of the Texas A&M bonfire tragedy. I look for OSU to turn the Mirror Lake area into a fountain.
I worry about provocation and retaliation getting the penalty. I'd urge the OSU players to respond to provocation by putting hands in the air and pointing at the provocateur. You're not going to accomplish anything by pushing/hitting back.
Something I haven't seen mentioned is OSU chose the wind for the 3rd QT, not the 4th. The wind increased over the second half as it blew the rain out. It became a major factor.
With all the current HC openings and more to come, he could be this year's Tom Herman.
Don't think for a second Delaney won't point out to his TV suitors six of the ten games on that list involve B1G teams.
Connor's parked over by the Commissary.

I'm showing 10-20 out of the west. We're playing in the heating part of the day so I'd expect upper end. Still, much better than last two days.
He'll also be smart enough to keep Mike Locksley. That will be the key to recruiting.
I'd say the black uniforms are one and done.
Fox will have trouble making the B1G their headline conference due to prior commitments to MLB, PAC-12, and B12. For example, earlier this season, both Arizona and Arizona State had home games against top ten opponents. Az. State moved to Friday to avoid one of them playing an afternoon game in the September heat. If you unload the Brinks truck to get the B1G, what do you tell your old customers? Sorry, you're relegated to FS1 and Fox Business Network?
I look for an ESPN/CBS arrangement like the SEC, but for more money. Plus a streaming arrangement of some sort.
My complaint about OSU gear is since they went to the exclusive provider, you can't get a good-quality crewneck sweat shirt. The J America crap OSU sells is as thin as the junk sweat shirts in airport gift shops. The Nike sweat shirts in the thermal material are nice with a matching inflated price, but a good cotton sweat shirt shouldn't be hard to make. J America is skimping on the quality to make back their bribe to OSU for exclusive rights. Hope my old Champion sweat shirt makes it until I die.
Vt was going to Orange Bowls when these games were scheduled. OSU dropped North Carolina as another home and home when the B1G went to nine games so they could get seven home games every season. Otherwise they would have played in Chapel Hill this season. Hawaii was a last-minute replacement.
Oregon State and UNLV are on near-term schedules.
Note Florida, FSU, Georgia, and GT do not routinely schedule other P5 home and homes. Kudos to USC for doing so. ND as an independent doesn't count.
Texas Tech and Washington State was one of the preseason "classics." Those ended when they went to 12 games. The others you list were home-and-home. The days of Oregon, Arizona State, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M as pay check games are gone forever.
The MSU-Alabama series was scheduled after the collapse of the B1G-PAC 12 Challenge. It was cancelled by Alabama in favor of neutral site games. Neutral site games, BTW, are struggling for attendance. That gravy train may be ending.
Give OSU credit for also playing other P5 schools willing to make it a pay check game like Colorado and Oregon State.
Tennessee series too.
I agree with making the initial call. The official who made it is the new 8th official with a "C" on his back and whose main job is to spot the spot and stand over it if the offense makes substitutions. From behind, his head did snap back.
This was the first time I've seen a targeting call overturned. It was the right thing to do, but I didn't know the initial call was reviewable.
It makes sense to hire a new AD first because he or she (think Rutgers) will want their football coach.
When Cardale is in the game, go four wides. That forces man coverage and opens up his scrambles up the middle. EZE can run power, toss sweeps, and swing passes.
