He is one of the most improved announcers. His first couple years he was awkward and kind of sounded like a dumb jock. But has developed into an insightful and comfortable announcer. Will be great to see him on OSU games if Fox gets the B1G games.

They are very different players and won't play the same position in our offense.  They are both great players though so picking one over the other is tough.  I guess if we got Grimes then Tyjon might fit an area of need more since Grimes and DPJ are both outside guys.  Of course if we are able to somehow get all 3 you won't see me complaining.

I think it matters how it happened.  This case isn't perfectly ideal since he's been committed for a while, but at least they let him know of their intent with almost a year left before signing day.  It would have been better had they offered that straight up, but they didn't realize how well they'd be able to recruit other top RBs when he committed most likely.  If they offered a grayshirt with a month or less before signing day, then I agree, that is pretty crappy because he wouldn't have any time to find a new spot.

NFL Network rubbing it in Eisen's face that OSU is dominating Michigan in the draft.  Hilarious.  Urban doesn't even have to say anything.

Hopkins, Fuller, and Braxton in Houston.  If they can get the QB situation figured out, that offense is going to be explosive.

Tyvis wasn't going to improve his stock much.  He already had so much tape that if anything another year might have hurt him because then he is too old and that body clock ticks pretty fast in football.  Marshall is a bit different, but honestly its his decision and he did what he thought was best for himself and his family.

If only Baylor had someone on their payroll that had experience investigating inappropriate relationship activities between a man and a woman....  Maybe this time  his investigation will lead to someone losing their job.

Looks like it was about a team down south, but LOL that Nebraska thought they were relevant.

Comment 22 Apr 2016

Agreed, I think the Nebraska guy took offense but Smith wasn't aiming his earlier comments at him.  Thus the Homer Simpson fading away tweet.

Comment 22 Apr 2016

Yeah, I think that one was directed at Nebraska and the rest were somewhere else because, lol Nebraska ain't relevant.

Comment 21 Apr 2016

Exactly, timing on this issue is the most important thing.  I suppose it would have been nice to be able to say to Sibley from the beginning that all we had room for was a grayshirt for him.  At that time, we did have space.  It's a tough call the later it gets because technically the rules let you do this until you send out written offers which ends up being really late because kids are committing earlier and earlier and classes fill up.

No doubt that there is a hill to climb, but ESPN has been struggling and if anyone can challenge them it is the B1G.  Delany deserves the benefit of the doubt given what he has done with the conference.

And at the end of the day it comes down to winning.  If OSU wins another championship or two soon and UM, MSU, PSU, and anyone else that wants to join the party can join in with some big wins going forward, the brand will be fine.  Also the B1G has a lot of fans that will watch no matter where it airs, it just might be harder to reach some of the casual non-local fans, but wins will help that too.

The old adage "spend money to make money" applies here.  If there is ever to be a challenger to ESPN's dominance, this had to be done.  Now with the alignment of Fox and BTN (Fox affiliate), they can co-brand things the way ESPN does with SECNetwork.  I don't mind the channels too much specifically, I think my big issue is with a couple of their personalities (Whitlock and Travis specifically).  But of course ESPN has Finebaum and May so no one is perfect.
