"Placed upon them?" I think not. The players willingly signed up to the rules.
So you're advocating that the NCAA member institutions (who after, after all, the ones who make the rules) shouldn't follow their own rules? That's great logic.
You're missing nothing--you've hit the nail on the head. Some people are so against the rule that players can't profit from things like autographs that it causes them to view other unrelated institutions as part of the "problem."
Nice work. I'd only add one thing to the end--you left out the part about Brandon and Hoke allowing Gibbons to suit up for the Michigan football team several days AFTER the university made its determination against Gibbons.
M Man is nowhere to be found? Who would've guessed that? Oh, right. Everybody.
Bingo. Disciplinarian Tuberville will suspend them for the yawner against 0-3 Miami, but conclude they did everything necessary to be reinstated just in time for the tilt in Columbus.
Back up off the Cincinnati Kool-Aid. They've played one game, against a Toledo team sporting a 1-2 record with their only win being against the New Hampshire Wildcats (spoiler alert: NOT an FBS team).
Praise like this for Cincinnati based on that one game is as ridiculous as anointing J.T. Barrett the next Joe Montana because he threw 6 TDs against Kent.
Might want to check your spelling there.
Sometime in the 1:00 a.m. hour.
Asking a question makes me "that guy?" Awesome...
I'll be eagerly awaiting the next report on campus construction, the OSU budget, etc. Or not.
Right. It's a "sporting" website. Which, if anything, explains why a story like this should NOT be posted on 11W.
What does "it's not anywhere worse than anywhere else" mean?
With all due respect, why is this being posted on a site devoted to OSU athletics?
On the last video highlight, why is it that Armani Reeves is a good 10 yards away from the receiver he is supposed to be guarding when the ball is snapped from the 10 yard line? To top it off, he misses the tackle in open space. TD Hokies.
It's posts like this, from that fan base, that make it clear those fans learned nothing from all of this.
They're not chrome jerseys. The helmets are chrome, but the jerseys are still predominantly scarlet (with chrome numbers). Put another way, no one would call Ohio State's away jerseys (the white ones with scarlet numbers) the "scarlet jerseys."
No doubt. 11W (or Walt) really should start selling these.
Bingo. That team was damn lucky not to be winless on the road last year.
"Michael Bennett solidified his starting spot over Tommy Schutt. Last week, Bennett and Schutt were co-starters with the "OR" label."
Is that a typo? The depth chart I'm looking at still has the "OR" between Schutt and Bennett.
How do you know why we dropped?
There's a difference between being negative and chest thumping over beating up on a team like Appy St. (especially when beating up on a team like that has, historically, not been an indicator of having a good remainder of the season).
To the clown who is in charge with the umichfootball twitter handle:
Are you aware that Michigan won 59-9 last year in week 1, only to finish 7-6 (losing 5 of the last 6 games), with a loss in the BW-3 Bowl to end the season?
So, yeah, pounding some cupcake in Week 1 means a whole lot. Congrats.
Do you love his 7-6 record last season?
Do you love the fact that his record has gotten worse each year he's been at Michigan?
Do you love Michigan playing in the BW-3 Bowl last year? And losing it?
I love all of those things about Brady too.
