There's one scenario where I wouldn't mind so much, which is where they told him they would honor his commitment/scholarship, but level with him that they had just recruited another TE in the class.  Perhaps that would be enough to make him reconsider.  

As long as Meyer had not promised him that they wouldn't take any more TEs in the class, then the above would be fine by me.  Whether that's what happened, I guess we may learn.

I hope Moore wasn't pushed out.  It would be morally wrong to do that IMO.  But it's way too early to jump to conclusions, at least let's hear the kid's side of the story more clearly.

Enjoyed your piece, except...."Perhaps most importantly, Nova has trimmed his interceptions to seven after throwing 14 picks last year."

I graduated from OSU way back in '99 so maybe I missed the new math that shows throwing 7 INTs in 150 attempts is better than throwing 14 in a 303 attempts?  Amazing how easily a narrative gets picked up without questioning. 

Most importantly indeed, Nova is in trouble.

Picking of the nits time...apologies in advance.  

Why is everybody talking about an airport in Los Angeles?  You would only capitalize all the letters in lax if it was an acronym, like OSU.  For instance, publications don't write BOARDERX, they write boarderX or similar.

Btw, I'm all for Texas... and Oklahoma (if they promise to try to join AAU).

Well, they do.... (cough) Will Muschamp (cough), but I wouldn't hire one that wasn't a proven head coach already at some level.

I often decide who to root for in situations like this by how I think it will affect OSU recruiting.  

IMO, there is more talent in Michigan than Nebraska, so it's better for Nebraska to win and make it that little bit more likely we get yet another stud Michigan kid to come on down :-)

Uhhh....they won two BCS bowl games in the last three years.

Comment 02 Oct 2014

I'm thinking they're good because they've already beaten South Florida, Syracuse and Indiana, ON TOP of the fact that they only fell to WVU by 3 points.  (WVU, who gave both Alabama and Oklahoma quite the fight already this season)  

I don't think our players should be scared, but I do think they should expect to have to execute and give 100% if they want to win this one.

Yes, but that's 63% of the situations where they have gone for it in the past.  That does not mean, however, that if they go for it (GFI) more often, they will remain at 63%.  

You have to assume that coaches are choosing the most advantageous times to GFI, such as when their line is getting the better of the other team's, they have a great short-yardage back in the game, etc, and by extension, not GFI'ing when they don't sense that advantage.

I'll def agree w/ Tee Martin and your overall point, but Matt Flynn was a fifth year senior, and is now in the NFL where he threw for 480 yards and 6 TD's in one game for the Packers, which neither Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers ever bested.
