Would have been nice if the author provided some pretty tight numbers saying how much money has been lost the past couple of years due to Thad and lack of winning.  My guess is several hundred thousand.  Now football has to help cover that lost revenue which means higher ticket prices for the shoe.  Meanwhile the 13th place coach in Big Ten is the 7th highest paid coach in the country.

Exactly, if this guy thinks Smith is so good, I have one question: why isn't he a returning starter then??  Webb and Fuller will be the safeties.  At cb, I think they learned their lesson last year and see the value of rotating and keeping players fresh.  Ward, Okudah, Wade, Sheffield and possibly Josh Norwood who was listed as 2nd team last year, but might be making room for all these new studs.

Most publicity from Alabi since he has been here.  Considering he has not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 people in his own class(Jones, Landers, Hamilton, Cornell) along with Hill & Sprinkle ahead of him at DT, might as well try something different since he was 4th string at best or even 5th string with Barrow and 2 frosh coming in.

With his job on the line and there is no if, and, or buts now, I bet the schedule will be very easy as he will need every win he can get.

Do you anticipate Thad really looking to load up on his favorite cupcakes and directional schools for non-conference?

Ohio State basketball-Purdue football.  No  one grows up wanting to play football at Purdue.  They go there when they don't get offers from their dream school or the offers they have are from lesser D1 schools.  Sadly OSU basketball is about ready to enter this realm where we start getting the crumbs, the kids who want to go to Dayton, Xavier, or Cincy and don't get offers.  Getting the 2 and 3 stars.  Thad has driven this program into the basement of the Big Ten.
