B1G intraconference transfer rules are pretty restrictive -- it would be easier for him to just go SEC: "

"He or she may not represent an alternate Big Ten institution in intercollegiate athletics competition until the individual has completed one (1) full academic year of residence at the second Big Ten school. Furthermore, he or she will be charged with the loss of one (1) season of eligibility in all sports (B1G 15.01.5.A)."

I had a coworker at that ti_e who had graduated fro_ U of _.  I have known good people fro_ that state up north, but this guy was as arrogant as they co_e -- always "OSU is not our rival, they are an auto_atic win.  Sparty is our real rival, ND is our secondary rival, and the other tea_s fro_ the Big Ten occasionally give us trouble, but OSU is nothing." (and he didn't even sound _ore arrogant than usual when he said it - it was just his world view, which was the _ost infuriating thing of all) .  .  . then he spent a few years after Tressel sputtering that OSU still wasn't a rival but they kept getting lucky, then we both switched jobs and he was out of _y life.  I'_ sure he's one that now proclai_s loudly that Tressel and Urban are both cheaters.

Learned two lessons fro_ this guy 1) avoid arrogant _ichigan fans and 2) Never, ever, EVER take anything for granted.

Tressel's first year, when he and the team backed up the words he said when he was hired.

Before the game, I expected another loss in a long string, and somewhere in the middle of that game I knew we had turned the page on a bad era.

Uni is OK . . . play on the field is bad.  And on the other side those winged helmets always look ugly to me.

The only thing that bothers me about the out of bounds kicks is that the opposing team almost always seems to score on the next drive.

But coach wants him to kick it into the corner, and with the plethora of kicks after scores, some of them go out.  High risk/high reward.

Been a bit of an Eagles fan since watching the Magic Flutie beat the Hurricanes a long, long time ago.

Amazing . . . I thought Gordon's record would last a long long time.

And thanks for starting the Heuerman thread -- love seeing the big guys catch the ball.

If Marshall is going to respond this way after a week of people talking bad about him, then let the trolls keep it up.

Dude is pretty amazing.  I hope his coach in Australia has another one just like him in a couple years when Mr. Johnston graduates to the NFL.

I'm excited for the guy too.

Very high ceiling.

Zeke and the entire team seem like they've come to play today.

How about that, I finally got one of these right.  And it only took about 71 seconds.

You know, this thread is like the opposite of the one that led to '11W Jail' -- I read all these posts and I don't want to just upvote them, I want to high-five the folks that posted these stories, and I can picture a lot of people wanting to do the same. Go Bucks
