First, I am completely against paying players. The benefits they receive are more than worth it as a kid that had to take loans out to pay for college.
Everything you said is completely valid though. The one problem I see with compensating the players like you mentioned is the wealthy colleges can buy championships. The big schools that have a lot of wealthy alumni/make a lot of money through TV contracts can pay the kids a lot of money. Why would any highly ranked recruit every choose a small school again? The parity in college athletics would change so much. Ohio State could pretty much get every recruit in the country because of our alumni base for football and basketball (Yes, this would be awesome!), but then I would feel like a Yankee fan.
I believe this post is two days late. I do not think any of our current QBs are ready to start for us this year.
- Clarett - Only year to go off of is Freshman year. What could have been.
- George - Won a Heisman
- Hyde - Man played with heart and as Jimmy McGinty said you need it to win
Born in 1990
So now the question becomes what is early?
The main thing for me was I knew Drew was from Ohio before this started (The Drew Carey Show and him attending sporting events). Chappelle I never knew was from Ohio until this started.
7 good plays 2 negative
Hyde's Iowa run was the highest at number 40. Unfortunately no love the Kenny G
I do not think it is a big deal at all. His trip is 3,433 mi* and 51 hours of driving*. If he added tOSU it would be 4,288 mi* and 63 hours of driving*. I would not want to make that trip in a week.

Only problem with this is they both get in foul trouble during the games leaving us without a big man. I like the theory but we have no depth with a true 4/5.
I hate saying this and should probably wash my mouth out with soap but go badgers
I didn't realize Apple still had his black stripe. Is there a story to this? Is there anyone else still with a black stripe?
2011-2012 Season I believe but could be off by a year or two.
Opinion or fact?
I am going to say the DL. I do not think anyone of them are going to have numbers that pop out compared to each other but as a unit they are going to do things that are legend what for it because the next word is dairy, legendary. One will have a great game, so the next week he is doubled and someone else controls the game.
Have fun voting. Also thanks for the update from the other thread.
