A lot of people would disagree about doing more good than harm.
Some pretty bad things have come out of it too, ranging from elimination of men's sports teams in the name of proportionality all the way to the erosion of due process and standards of evidence for the accused in campus sexual harassment hearings (something that really shouldn't fall under the original law). I wouldn't call it silly, but I'd pop some champagne if it was repealed/redefined.
Wilner is a joke. I spent a season about five years ago following his column which explained his ranking system, and it was just a mess. Some credit for bucking the trend of keeping teams in the same order as the preseason poll, but his system in truth might be a monkey with a dartboard.
VaTech is a perennial 10 win team (last year or so not-withstanding). That transfer QB makes them like Wiscy with Russel Wilson, they should finish ranked just outside of the top 10. (no, that still doesn't make it right).
while I'd much rather play a home and home with a legit team, the $1.3m payout is much less of a loss than whatever share they get from an away game.
Yeah, if you're in your skivvies, it should be at the beach when the sun is out.
I will expect him at the Spring Game next year to challenge for the fastest man on campus.
Should be an oversized belt, boxing style, the coach can wear it on the sidelines the following season.

I don't mind OSU cutting out most of the secondary market on a 7-8 game home season. I do mind paying the same price for a ticket at the top of D deck as for A deck. With the analytics available (especially partnered with Tickemaster) they should be doing a better job of variable pricing.
um, no. until he averages a triple double for a season, he takes a backseat to oscar robertson.
Eh. Browns were at 97% capacity last year, and they have a wait list for season tickets. Filling seats is not the problem, keeping butts in the stadium past the third quarter is. Former Buckeyes are great, but they haven't had a good track record with recent picks (Robiskie comes to mind).
Calling them hapless is being extremely generous.

My friend, who works at the Citgo, said his mom heard that her neighbor's thrid cousin knows a grad assistant on the women's volleyball team who dates a guy in the cafeteria who brings meals to the janitor at Morril who runs a car cleaning service that Gene Smith's college roomate drives past on his way to Starbucks, said everyone is being fired BEFORE the game.
Sometimes you guys do not make me proud to be a Buckeye.
Luckily there's a game on Saturday, and my ass will be there...

If Tress were a basketball coach, I could see him drooling at the thought of limiting a game to 49 possessions...
While I doubt anyone (meaning the voters) would let that happen, seeing the #3 & #4 teams play in the Rose would be delicious, and most likely see a split national champion.
