I don't know if this is completely true. For starters I can't recall any other time that OSU was held to a strict timetable on when a position could be hired. Was the HC job posted before Urban was hired? I don't remember. Also Gordon Gee was famous for creating positions out of nowhere and naming whomever he wanted to them, best example I can think of was former Ohio Rep Joyce Beatty who was named Sr VP of Outreach and Engagement. A new position that there was never any job posting for, Gee just appointed her. In addition (and sorry for throwing out some legal junk here) Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 3335 is the law that gives OSU the authority it has and it makes no mention of any waiting period. ORC 3345 governs all other universities in Ohio with the exception of OSU. It's late and I have not read all of 3345 but from a strictly high level review it does not appear OSU would be violating any rules by hiring someone whenever they please.

Can't totally confirm this yet, since the peeps that told me were shit faced drunk, but I have heard the whole "regulating" isn't really happening. The regulation plan was one entrance in only with many exits out and a wrist band needed. Word I am hearing is they aren't checking for wristbands and don't really care how you get in or out.... Anyone able to confirm?

This is a bit ridiculous to me, honestly. I'm all for safety and whatnot but just have the EMT's off to the side just in case like they have in years past. All this nonsense of wristbands needed, designated entrance and exit points... It's overkill. This is an amazing tradition that everyone who attends OSU needs to do at least once and the administration is going to kill it off. At the very leasst get rid of the whole need for a wrist band. That's dumb as hell. It's like you need to pre-register to jump in a damn lake. And if they are only giving out 4,000 of them what happens when they run out? You turn away the drunk 18yo's at the newly designated entrance only gate? Yeah. That will turn out fantastic.

Also starting to feel a little guilty for all those times I would bash Boise State. Sure the level of competition in the WAC and their overall schedule wasn't the greatest but nobody, myself included, really gave Boise State the respect they probably should have gotten. Well I guess Pat Forde did but he's the kind of douche you don't want cheerleading for you.

I feel bad for the team. I really do. The team and the fans should be loving every minute of what's going on with season and the current win streak. Instead there is this sense of failure, of things not accomplished. Sure some people will say they do love every minute right now but the general mood is disappointing. If the team can leave Illinois after winning a game by 25 and feel a sense of dread something is wrong. They keep winning every game and yet keep being told they aren't good enough. I couldn't imagine the emotions those guys are feeling lately.

Plus OSU's #s will improve a bit, too. When the morons on espn pretty much are in agreement that Stanford would not jump Ohio State, you would think it would stop the 50 comments about it tonight and the 15 topic posts on here all week. I don't like espn either but when 90% of their talking heads say it's not happening.... Yeah.

Oklahoma's offense is terrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrible but I think all the chicken little's should look at it this way.... Even if Baylor wins they will be no where close to their season averages in offense.

Headline on espn college football page:

Slow It Down
Baylor's high-powered offense gets all the headlines, but the defenses are stealing the show
