Or stays home and goes to Pitt, where its head coach has a track record for 1st round CBs, and he would start from the day he walks on campus since they are seriously lacking talent on the backend (but for Whitehead).

OSU is extremely aggressive with trademark litigation and has threatened 11W before when using Brutus' likeness for profit.  They even had to change the name of the tailgate because it used Brutus' name.  Read the oral history of 11W (http://www.elevenwarriors.com/11w/2016/08/73365/the-oral-history-of-eleven-warriors-10-years-on-the-wild-ride-of-the-largest-college-sports-team-site-on-the-internet) as they discuss a lot of this.

Same people that probably threw a fit when Kenny Guiton was given a scholly.  You never know what someone is capable of and everyone develops at different rates.

Here is an article that goes into some of the reasons they continue to be a dumpster fire:

In a slight defense of USC, I do think their NCAA sanctions were extreme, considering the evidence was pretty scant.  Like OSU, there have been much worse scandals since that time that have received less punishment.

This one was pretty good, although not as difficult since no one could cover him.

Joshua Perry also befriended that little boy...which isn't surprising since he is a quality individual.

Let's not forget Dantonio also started the resurgence of the Cincinnati football program.  He lead them to their first winning record in 23 years.  Brian Kelly gets the credit, but Dantonio started the program down that path.

And I would also argue that it is certainly more impressive to win at MSU than at UM.  UM may have a lot more pressure, but its not nearly as difficult to recruit with the pedigree and resources at your disposal.  I think Dantonio would be wildly successful if he was the coach at UM. 

None of this is knocking Harbaugh, but just supporting the notion that Dantonio is an excellent coach.
