Tough position for drake. He tried to send a message: with the sexual assault problems on college campuses these days (osu is one of the schools listed as an offendor), this was something he felt was in the long-term interest of the school.
now that he has acted, he can't renege. Especially not in his first few weeks of a new presidency.
disagree with the initial decision, but it's hard to back out now without looking weak. It's a shame that this is coming down to a power play
