Yes but the gap isn't as wide as it was starting around 2007-2008. I would say that within the next coupe of years the Big Ten could significantly close that gap, if not even tie the SEC

If he had to pick another Big Ten school aside from Ohio St (for whatever reasons) I'd hate for it to be Michigan St. We have a rivalry there and I'd hate to root against the kid ( Antoine Winfield was one of my all time favorites).  However, Dantonio helped take the silver bullets to a different level and we've seen how well he's developed db's up there in Lansing.  Here's hoping us Buckeye fans don't have to worry about that.

If you think adding Maryland and Rutgers was good for Ohio St and the Big Ten you're delusional. That means fewer games against the western division teams like Nebraska and Wisconsin which generate more interest and competitiveness than with Rutgers and Maryland. Rutgers and Maryland will never compete for an eastern division title. I love watching football but to see those two teams play against the Buckeyes or Mich St, Penn St, Michigan, or any other Big Ten team is an automatic "turn the tv off" game.

Another former OSU defensive back who  had a good career who doesn't get enough credit in my opinion is Ahmed Plummer

Chose Duke, but I don't consider it "jumping on a bandwagon." I like and root for Duke outside of Ohio St unless it hurts the Bucks.

How can you say they've represented the Big Ten well after just one year? Yes, Purdue, Indiana, and Michigan in various sports have not lived up to what they each can be ( certainly Michigan should be far better than Indiana and Michigan) but speaking long term their mediocrity is a blip. 

I'll be interested in seeing if you still say Rutgers and Maryland were good additions when they get their butts kicked in bowl games every year.

Finally, spare us the academic resume. It was all about tv and eyeballs for the Big Ten Network ( which was such faulty logic, but that's for another discussion forum). The academics were just a nice little bone to throw in so no one would lambast them for taking the money. The Big Ten is an athletic conference, not an academic society. If the number one reason to bring in schools was to tighten academic achievements then there'd be a hell of a lot more liberal arts schools from Ohio being added to the Big Ten.

I've never been a Gene Smith fan because ever since he's taken the job he's sold out the tradition. First, he's allowed Nike to mess with our uniforms. Second, if you've been in the Shoe lately, there are sponsorships everywhere which are eyesores. He's never flexed the muscle Ohio St has to push back against some of Delaney's dumbest ideas ( I'm looking at you Rutgers and Maryland). Then there's also his handling of the Tat 5/ Tressel saga.  The only thing that keeps him from being a complete failure is landing Meyer and even that I can't give him too much credit because even a monkey could've signed Meyer to on open OSU job and an available Meyer who wanted the job.

After reading that story about the buffets the players have, can we please put to rest the "starving athlete" angle on college athletics?

Comment 27 Feb 2015

You kind of proved my point. If he doesn't have good route running skills and the other skills (aside from speed) necessary to be a good receiver then he can't add any value as a receiver as a team

Comment 26 Feb 2015

Are you judging purely on athleticism or on skill? Sure, Ted Ginn Jr is a super athlete but these once  these thoroughbreds lose that fast twitch ability then what else do they have? He's had more than 50 receptions once and in 8 years has 11 touchdown receptions. Even his kickoff and punt return numbers have declined.
