Good post. We've seen lots of empty seats, lately. People are choosing 1080p over A-deck. If this persists, maintaining - let alone, building - these 100K+ venues, will be harder to justify.

Keep thinkin' like you're thinkin' Bukyze and you'll be CrossYZE. Then, YOU'LL be hungover.

In America, business ain't sentimental.  It ain't. There's a long history of bulldozing for business needs (see Yankee Stadium. "The House That Ruth Built"...GONE.). TOSU is a business.

I'm sure tOSU has already commissioned studies - possibly, from Populous: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populous_(company)

I think a "New Shoe" in 5-10 - though possible - is likely, improbable.

10-20? Very possible.

Two league offices: one in Chicago and one in NYC, portends the two, eventual, divisions (leagues): Midwestern Ivies (Big 10 and PSU/UNL) + Eastern Ivies (Ivy League + RUT/MD) = the New B1G. "When you get the money...you get the (players). When you get the (players)...you get the power."

With NU going union, watch out for those Ivy League schools and their huge endowments and elite alums.

Nicholas,

You write:

It was still an excellent season: the 2013 team completed an school record 24-game win streak, won its division, and played in a BCS bowl.

Buckeye expectations = National championships. This is why Urban Meyer was hired. 2013...not excellent.

You conclude:

Rather than holding the 2014 season up to create some historical narrative, maybe we can shut up and enjoy Year Three for itself.

Maybe...Urban Meyer's best work is coaching the Buckeye fan base?

Go Bucks!

"Arrest Season"...yeah, too bad Arrested Development is already taken. Unfortunately witty, nonetheless. ESPN will make a show of it, I'm sure.

Comment 27 Mar 2014

I doesn't seem you know much about the history of unions. 

Comment 11 Feb 2014

I've been a Browns fan since I was a kid, in the 70's.

I am tired of this slow-moving disaster epic.

Pardon my language. But, this is eFFin' BULLshit!

To me, it's about stats and championships. Hardware can be the tie-breaker. But, it won't be on my list:

1. Hop Cassady and MoC: Both champs. In this case, the Heisman is matched by potential. I am convinced that had he stayed for three years, MoC would have won two Heismans and tOSU would have won two straight MNC's (at least). Had he stayed, not only would he have been tOSU's greatest RB, MoC would be college football's greatest, unless...

2. Archie. My boyhood hero and that team he was on had won the 3 MNC's they SHOULD have won. Were that reality, Archie would be the greatest (tOSU/college football).

3. Eddie.

4. Keith.

5. Beanie.

The NCAA recognizes the football powers have dispatched their lawyers to hatch a plan to pay players, that the Department of Education will find acceptable.

The NCAA's trying to survive. The NCAA is on Gilligan's Island and it will be forgotten, soon.

Comment 15 Jan 2014

Once the lawyerin's done, the Dept. of Ed's satisfied, the universities are confident and the players can begin collecting checks, we will see the return of those who were the titans of college football, at its founding: Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Penn and their colossal endowments and influence. The pendulum of college football power will hang above the city states of the northeast. Money may make western schools of Ohio State and Michigan, yet again.

The Princeton Tigers claim 28 MNC's, won between 1869-1950:

Larry Johnson proves - and we should never doubt - linemen = athletes.
