To be clear, if he commits to OSU today, he'd get his own story. That would be very, very unlikely. If he commits elsewhere, it'll get its own message board thread. That would also be unlikely. Even pot-stirrers like me don't think anything big is happening; for all we know, the big announcement was that he isn't attending Auburn's spring game.
If he commits somewhere today, rest assured that he'll get his own story. Until then, no. With recruits you never know what the big announcement is going to be until it happens, and 50% of the time it's a top 20 or something else anticlimactic.
What can I say, it was the Word of the Day on my calendar. (Actually, I'm familiar with it through the Fullmetal Alchemist series.)
That's a fascinating bit of university planning. Along the same lines, the Knowlton School of Architecture at Ohio State has its own overview of what Buckeye Grove brings to the university and its goals for connecting different parts of the university (dorms, Ohio Stadium, and the RPAC). That's where one of the photos in this story comes from, actually.
I can only assume the downvote is for somebody who hated having to use Turabian. Of the four I had to use in college (ALA, MLA, Turabian, Chicago) it was my favorite.
For the record, Ohio State is 2-0 against the following schools since 2012:
- Penn State
If he's talking about a coaching staff that has been intact since 2012 that leaves Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan. Sorry DJ, the Zach Smith-Kevin Wilson feud is getting ugly.
Pretty weird, since everybody used to call him "11-1" Earle Bruce.
After letting anger far beyond my expectations die down, here is a response to you and everyone.
- It doesn't matter if someone calls me immature or a shit-eating Nazi, nothing would offend me enough to demand an apology. I have tough skin.
- The tax and Title IX objections are null, and what football athletes do is more like a work-study program with a greater workload and less freedoms. The difference between a football union and a graduate assistants' union comes from how the work relates to the school's academic mission. See this post from a labor lawyer at MGoBlog for more detail.
- Everyone needs to stop kidding themselves about the purity of college sports. Division I schools play varsity sports because they make money and/or attract notoriety for the school. They have nothing to do with enhancing the educational experience.
- It really isn't about the money. I've seen lots of people grousing about how today's scholarship athletes are better off financially than they were before. They are, but they also have zero autonomy and absurd time commitments. That's what the lawsuits are about; money is a secondary or tertiary concern.
- If you can't find a problem with the content or my writing ability, I'm not going to apologize for the tone or "angry youngster" point of view.
- I was hoping this would inspire debate about paternalism in college sports and not politics re: unions or socialism. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised how it turned out.
Alabama fans are Sabanistas, while Auburn fans are Contra-Sabanistas.
Yeah, and Moses Cleaveland didn't invent Cleveland. Get outta here.
Most of the people you mention here were considered and just failed to make the cut. The Celebrity regional is really, really stacked. And as a former Boy Scout, I was feeling miffed by Daniel Beard's absence until I saw Simon Kenton made the list.
Philosophically, there are several criteria to determine who qualifies for the tournament to avoid missing some really obvious inclusions. For instance, should Wilbur Wright be excluded because was born in Millville, Indiana? How could we include Orville but not Wilbur Wright?
Sure. It's happened in women's basketball, where the talent disparity is much greater. Southern almost pulled it off against Gonzaga last year, and back in 1996 some Ivy League school missed a buzzer beater that would've won the game. Given that each 16 seed has had about a 1% chance of winning, it's got to happen eventually.
Ah, I see. It's a grey on grey background, though the darker Buckeye leaves (hexadecimal color #E3E4E4) make the surrounding grey (#EEEEEE) look whiter. Does that pattern take up a lot of your screen? On my 13" monitor it takes up about half an inch on each side, with the solid grey background taking up 90% of the screen's width.
Here were Ross's numbers from Big Ten games last year, including the Big Ten Tournament:
That's 317 total minutes, or 15 minutes a game. Excluding the Big Ten Tournament, it's 14.7 points a game. I'm not sure where 6-8 minutes comes from, other than perception.
