I only list Mack because, by all accounts, he is a freak.  Being in the building for almost 6 months, getting winter conditioning and spring ball under his belt and losing his black stripe gives him a huge leg up on anyone enrolling in August.  I am in no way attempting to dimish Victor and his skillset, but that is a lot of ground to have to make up, especially in order to jump some guys who already have years in the program.

COD 4 came out right when I was finishing grad school.  I think I put in 17 days worth of multiplayer time, which probably isn't much by today's standards - but seems insane in hindsight.  For nostalgia purposes, I'll probably be buying this game.  To this day, I still haven't beaten the bonus plane level on Veteran difficulty.

Transferring out is not the answer for everyone.  By all accounts, he loves Ohio State, he's probably made lifelong friends, he will graduate with a degree from a great university, has won a CFB National Title and gets to go to work with one of the greatest coaches to ever walk the sideline.  

There comes a point for all athletes -whether it happens in grade school, high school, or college - when you realize your skillset isn't going to make you money as a professional athlete.  Stephen has likely realized this and has accepted it.  Why not enjoy the rest of your time at a university we all love and use the connections and benefits available to set up a career after football?  That all sounds much more appealing to me then getting some run in the Sun Belt.

As much as I hate reading about "mixed-use developments", I must say that I wish I had the opportunity to actually live in a semi decent place that close to campus.  As late as the mid 2000s, you really had to commute to campus to get a good place to live.  I used to live a block away from Out-R-Inn on Frambes and the tradeoff was rats, water coming through my ceiling everytime it rained, HVAC that sometimes worked and an independent landlord who couldn't give 2 shits about fixing any of it.

That said, it still sucks to see some campus landmarks taken down in favor of nondescript, cookie cutter buildings.

I didn't say anything about talent either, other than loving your school won't win any games. I won't deny anyone's passion for Ohio State, but it shouldn't really be a major consideration when choosing who you recruit. If they love the Buckeyes and the coaches feel they can be a major contributor as well, then it is a win win. If someone comes along with interest who is a top 20 overall guy, you can't really say "sorry we have the 211th ranked player already comitted". Birm would be the first to tell you that nothing is consistent in recruiting other than it is inconsistent. Players change over the course of time, so I agree with others that maybe you don't take commitments from players 2 years in advance unless you know they are can't miss guys.
