Doesn't the "home" team get to choose which jersey they wear?
gray stripes on sleeves, yes!
gray stripes on pants? erm...
They didn't win the NJIT...
I think he'll surprise some people. He has been working in the shadow of the great Nike factory, sprinkled in some 9 and 10 win seasons at a school known for finishing last in the conference, and won more bowl games than he's lost.
It's easy to poke fun (and I don't begrudge anyone doing it), but I would ask, really, who else would you have hired that would have actually taken the job? It is probably not a top-20 position.
Top wins (your estimation may vary)
TCU: KState, OU, at WVU, Minnesota
OSU: at Michigan St, at Minnesota, at Maryland, at Penn St (sub in at Navy if you like).
Tough comparison... but our best wins were road wins, even tho they were close. TCU has a little more quality up top without the benefit of the Wiscy win. With it I think we move on, if you don't give too much credence to quality losses...
yeah, just put it in the microwave for 90 seconds, and boom.
I heard it started as slang for "Dive"
If Miss St & Auburn (lost to MSU) win out, both will go, Auburn will have wins over Ole Miss and Alabama (and Georgia) and a decent looking road OOC win at K-State. Not likely that happens, but AU will be at worst #3 in that scenario.

"That's what she said"
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 I wouldn't call it silly, but I'd pop some champagne if it was repealed/redefined.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).
