You gotta love that the Aussie married an Ohio girl and lives in Columbus.

It isn't college football or basketball's fault that there aren't viable professional minor leagues in the USA for their sports. The problem is that many college athletes (basketball and football) have lived lives of entitlement because they were told they were special talents all their lives. Very few of them live up to the hype and make it in the pros. The NFL won't take these kids because they know their bodies would get dismantled by bigger stronger faster grown men (well not really, Adam Viniteri is the only guy 40 or older). The NBA doesn't want the kids because of their immaturity and difficulty in evaluating their talent. If we start paying players and allow our successful alumni and patrons to lure kids to college with endorsement deals then college sports will become irrelevant (just another minor league sport). I believe most college football fans enjoy the games because they share the illusion that they are watching amateur student athletes compete against one another. Once players start getting payed like pros then that illusion will be gone. Ohio State and all of the minor league college teams will have to lower ticket prices and have dime-a-dog nights to attract fans.

I appreciate seeing photos of visitors...any idea who these guys are? I'll take 3 of the kid on the right. He is swoooool for a HS kid.

I would buy a generic Ohio State jersey without a  player's name or number on it. I would not buy a Braxton Miller jersey if it didn't have an Ohio State logo on it.  I will quit being a college sports' fan when players start getting paid. I show up to watch the Clippers on dime-a-dog night but I go to Cleveland if I want to watch professional baseball. If I want to watch professional football, I'll go to Cleveland...wait....yeah...cleveland. The Browns are bad but very few college kids are good enough to play for them. 

I am for kids getting lifetime medical treatment and benefits for injuries suffered as college athletes and I could live with players receiving stipends and travel money but that is all. If the door is opened for endorsement deals then we will see every 5-star recruit offered a deal with Nike to go to Oregon or a deal with UA to play for Maryland. Scum recruits will be paid outrageous $ to do pizza commercials.  I don't ever want to see an Ohio State football player modeling Victorias Secret.

That's one of the best things about being a Buckeye on main campus. The guys you've looked up to all your life are your classmates.

Never been confused with being a troll on this site..Sure I'm grumpy ...Mostly when I see posts from supposed fans who assume the worst from the kids that play for "our" team. I get that Eli is obviously in the dog house for some reason but when you speculate that he might have been responsible for spiking a teammate's drink with illegal drugs you've crossed the line into douchebaggery.

You should have stopped at "I am highly confused."

Don't know what kind of reviews it gets in Columbus but I had a great meal and good time at the Three Legged Mare in the arena district when I was in Columbus for a convention.

" If one of those players is on the field for me, and I have no timeouts, I have no way to stop the game. And he raises his hand to stop the game, and I can't do it. What am I supposed to do? What are we supposed to do when we have a player who tells us he's injured?”-- Bret (Bert) Bielema

Since this happened against YOUR TEAM... You might want to try it...

Glad to see you post this. I thought I was going to have to go all Waycraken to get Breck some attention on this board.
