This reminds me of something I read Tim Floyd (UTEP coach) said last week:

http://coachingsearch.com/article?a=Tim-Floyd-blasts-radio-host-goes-off-about-college-transfers

- Per Floyd, there have been 581 transfers in college hoops so far (UTEP has 3).

- Per Floyd, last year, there were 79 teams with three transfers and 74 with four (UTEP had 1).

- Per Jim Larrañaga, over the last two years, 344 Division I programs (out of 351) have had at least one player leave.

There are also excerpts from other coaches.  They go on to say that these kids will play for multiple AAU teams at a time, sometimes three teams in the same day.  The whole culture that basketball players are being raised in seems very nomadic.  Expect transfer rates to increase.

If you keep a lot of files backed up and keep reinstalling them on your new computers it's possible you could have a bad file in your back ups.

Yes I have seen that and it is pretty amazing.  That and the virtual reality QB training systems they are developing are pretty intriguing teaching tools.  I believe it's just a matter of refinement and you will see those popping up everywhere in a few years.

The situation reminds me of the criticism Gordon Gee got when he joked he was happy Tressel didn't fire him.  People thought it was outrageous a college football coach would hold power over the college president, even though Gee's comment was in jest.  

Gary Pinkel just turned Gordon Gee's joke into reality.  He backed the students over the president.  Either Pinkel or the president had to go.

Interesting take on economics chancellor. The OSU athletic department is self-sufficient because of the "overpaid" coach while Universities like yours raise tuition yearly because they throw away money like Rick Pitino at a strip club.

I think a lot of teams face these issues more often than you think...Urban just makes it public to take pressure off his players and put the responsibility on himself and the staff. You'll never hear him speak publicly about all the times he's out schemed the opponents, but goes without saying he's done that quite a few times.

That's a great entrance, but what's better than Enter Sandman in Lane Stadium?  Enter Sandman in the Shoe.  I got to see Metallica there in 2003.  Great concert, but it was weird being in Ohio Stadium without football.

Thanks for the heads up, that's extremely relevant to my avatar.  That would have been fun to submit but I don't think my graphic design skills are on par with some of those other entries.

I just thought it would be cool to have a username that plays off my time at OSU.  SInce OSU got rid of my buckeyemail I thought I'd bring it back with FBU (football university) instead of .Edu since football is better than class.  

My avatar is my one and only experience using the free image-editing program Gimp.  I just replaced the stars with buckeye leafs and added the championship trophy to the middle.
