Too bad we can't get both and the staff encourages Clark to greyshirt like they did with Sibley, his teammate.

Did they have them in high school and transfer from two different colleges before they arrived at OSU??  So you think Austin is just a typical 18 or 19 year old??

He transfers out of 2 schools in 6 months and fathers a child while in high school.  Yep he is a real winner Mr goody two shoes.  That make you feel better?

Urb did put Fada & Burger on scholly for both spring & summer semesters.  That is a chance to get 30 hours plus room & board for free.  Not sure what your issue is with Vonn Bell.  He leaves as a 1st team All-American and was never in any trouble.  As far as your point about Troy Smith being good for the culture, don't agree.  What is fresh on my mind with Smith is his recent drunk driving episode where he looked like a total idiot.  Not his first time being in trouble either. That Heisman from 10 years ago is a distant memory for many.

That is essentially what I said except I still think guys should get 2 years.  Not 18 or 19 year old is ready from day 1, but after two years the coaches know what they have.  For example with Collier having to miss the entire year with injury, this is a perfect time for him to transfer since he would have to sit out the year anyways with transfer.  He was an early enrollee and has been here 3 springs.  He is never going to play.

Stu, I think everyone should get 2 years.  By then the coaches and players themselves will know if their skill set is a right fit for OSU.  You list several 1st year players, these guys have to take to coaching in some cases to develop the raw talent they possess.  But I'm in agreement on some of your list.  Any rising 3rd or 4th year player that isn't in the 2 deep should sit with the  coaches to examine options as they are probably not a good fit anymore.
