At this point, just let him go if that is what he wants to do. While this all seems unfortunate, if Stan was the only reason he was coming here then it is probably for the best to resolve the matter now than let it hurt both parties involved. The Cass pipeline appears to have been officially closed.
I can't stop watching that RKO!
Your correct that they would be better options but those options would be very heavy with expectations to win which is why Duke could take some pressure off him to allow final NFL development and the rest would be gravy for him.
I am in Durham as well and don't think it would be a stretch if true. Look at the ACC and if Winston leaves FSU this league will be wide open next year. Watson will be coming back from injury, FSU will have a first year QB and no other top shelf starter around the league means getting Braxton could get Duke a potential championship. They are a growing program and a Braxton led year could push them more to the top tier in the league. Duke's O will run but also throw more which could benefit him from a development standpoint for his NFL chances. He can focus on QB play rather than Heisman and Playoffs with JT right behind him if the production is slow. And if your honest, there is no guarantee of an NFL career. Grad school degree from Duke could provide additional options for post football work should they be needed. It could be a win - win for everyone involved. I love Braxton but with JT's progress this year, he is in a difficult position where some difficult decisions may have to be made. I don't necessarily want him to leave OSU but I also don't want JT's progress to be impacted for another season. With each Urban recruiting class coming in, the train cannot stop for a development year at QB, especially with a new coordinator coming in.

I have to admit that I first saw that as "Dixon Seeking Immediate RELEASE".....just about feel out of the chair!

Sounds like LJ has some left in the tank and sees a nice group of D lineman to work with. The Ash hire sounds like Herman got his future DC on staff for when they take a job at some Texas university next year. I guess they can use the same moving company. I give the day an eehhhh let's see what happens. Can it really get worse in the secondary?
If the last two years have shown anything, it is that JT better be ready to go from day one next season. He will get snaps during the season and they may be at key times. He needs to go into came thinking he is locking down the #2 spot without a doubt and when his number is called, they can call any play needed to get the job done.
Have to do better in 1st down!
And Braxton keeps rubbing his shoulder. He got hurt on that sack.
Worst D I have seen in all the BCS games yet.
In addition to your list,
Looks great. Make the helmets the same color as today but maybe with metallic flecks and NO green neon buckeye stickers. Other than that, love the block O logo and the unis. Great work.
Best of luck to him. No hard feelings and hopefully the same from their side. We have numbers to crunch due to our sanctions and he had offers that could wrap up what can be very a intense and stressful process. From the kids perspecitve, I could imagine that he would want to wrap up the process and move on the next phase of college planning. He should not have to worry about what may or may not happen in another week or two to free up space. He did what he needed to secure his future. Our staff killed it on NSD and I am sure there were tough decisions all around. Who knows if some others that may have wanted to be a part of the class but were turned away. One of those things. Again best of luck at a high end program that is close to home. Let the kid be happy in the outcome.
Frank E., come on down as your the next punter on the Bucks are Right. With the new WR haul, you may need to branch out.
Hmmm, Michigan “maize” really does look like urine……
