Recruiting ranking are essentially guesses.  Obviously Amir dominated high school with his size alone and his "lack of motor" was overshadowed.  While it is frustrating to watch his potential be unfulfilled, I think it unfair for people to demonize the kid.  He's not the first highly rated recruit not to have a great college career.  Its true he didn't live up to anyone's expectations; the "experts" were simply wrong about him.

The key to safety is to stay on campus where they have those signs that say "Ohio State is a weapons free zone."  I know that made me feel better.

I love Tate's attitude on that court.  He does so many hustle plays.  I loved when he dove on the floor for that loose ball and then immediately called a timeout.  If Amir had the same mentality, he would already be in the NBA.

Where I live, a high school athlete has to sit out a year if they transfer, much like the college rule. The only way to avoid that is if their entire family physically moves to a new high school's boundary.  What is the rule in Ohio? Can students just transfer every year if they want to?

After Harbaugh, he is the Big Ten coach I like the least. Talk is cheap. Happy Valley will require more than just talk.

Everyone makes mistakes. While what he did was disappointing and shocking (at least to me), I don't want to judge his entire life by one horrible decision. Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye.

Agreed. Whatever just happened to watching the game?  That's why I love college sports, it seems like there is more passion.  Do lower-bowl fans at NBA games still clap or do they just rattle their jewelry?

Great story. I love how it said he was just working along everyone else and blending in.  I think its cool he didn't seek attention for his service.  Jameis Winston would have called a press conference and then stopped working as soon as the cameras turned off. Cardale is truly a special person on and off the field.

My DVR has saved me so much pain this year. I just can't watch them play so horribly. The National Title takes away pain too. Hope TTUN savors this one while we polish the CFP trophy.

Happy to see 618 give life a second chance. Also happy to see that this site is even more wonderful than I thought it was. Proud to be a member.

Does there have to be a permanent starter?  I wouldn't mind letting each of them tear it up.  The opposing defense will have to prepare for three different types of quarterback--never knowing who will step in under center.  Backup QBs often spark a team because its a change of pace.  We have three starting QBs with varying skill sets--let them all play a little bit.  Of course, I've never played a down of organized football, so I really have no idea if it would work! ;)

That is one way around it, but then the couple is liable for any damage or any items stolen from the room.  I would hate to see the  generous couple get stuck paying for a stolen TV or something.  You want to trust that the homeless couple will just sleep there--but can you?  I understand the hotel's policy--but it should have done things differently.  Its a sad situation.
