It does have a beautiful campus.  We did a college visit there about 10 years back.  I was very impressed, but the kiddo ended up a Buckeye

What Buckeyes did they ruin?  The only drafted player I can think of is Robiske.  They signed some FA (not that many) and passed on a goodly number in the draft and FA that are doing well elsewhere.  They used to have quite a few Buckeyes - not any longer.  Is there a connection there somewhere?

I really hope they take Boas in the first, Thomas in the 2nd. and Cardale in the 3rd/4th. First steps back to respectability.

We can respectfully disagree.  Of course the decision makers up there have not shown the ability to make any kind of good pick..  Thomas and Mack - okay - all the other line picks - not so much.  But why spend big bucks on a QB who won't have time to do anything with the ball other than run for his life?
