That one exchange represented the entirety of Chris Myers' career. A completely asinine question saved by an incredibly entertaining answer.

I agree, very crude measurement. Especially since the college regular season means very little compared to the tournament. No ranking would be complete without taking both into consideration. The BasketBucks have had their moments but there's no way we're the 12th best program in the history of college basketball.

A lot of us had the same expectation. With hindsight, I think we all underappreciated the quality (and quantity) of great WRs that Tressel developed.

Most public universities have taken this approach for years. Academic qualifications have never been a red line for acceptance. Specific to OSU, diversity in admissions includes: income, work experience, volunteer work, extra-curriculars, geography, military service (of students or parents), test scores, ATHLETICS, etc. If GPA and "preparedness" were the only (or most important) factors, schools would have a well publicized and very strict minimum gpa requirement that nobody, including athletes, would be able to get around.

Appalachians made up nearly 40% of the students served by our OMA (Office of Minority Affairs) department when I was a freshman 10 years ago. Our administration has made it a priority to help all kids, politically correct or not. I don't think OSU has ever cared about misinterpretations from that "segment of society"

Brent dropped this line during the Clemson/Auburn game this year. I think he's still as sharp as ever.

ESPN sticking him with the 3rd/4th best conference game on the SEC Network was an injustice. Sad to see him officially retire. 

Comment 16 Jan 2017

I think you're right. The novelty of the first ever playoff probably led to he ratings being inflated. ESPN is unlikely to ever replicate their first year numbers.

ESPN Hype Machine's other greatest teams ever include 2002 Miami and 2005 USC.
