I think he was listed as an athlete coming out of high school, so I think very few imagined/offered him as a QB. I just have trouble jumping on this story and accepting his claim when he wasn't even getting offers from Bama.

Just want to point out that neither 247 or Rivals show White even receiving an offer from Alabama. Not to be the guy defending Bama, but why would they offer him a Corvette before a scholarship? Seems like White just jumping on the Derrick Henry  car issue.

That's actually wrong, CPD doesn't put anyone anywhere. Jobs become open as officers move around the department and the officers who "apply" (for lack of better term) to the open position on a precinct are chosen based on their seniority within the department. Seniority is based off when you were hired.  So you will usually find older officers (think 10+ years on the department) on 1st shift jobs and the younger officers will have 2nd and 3rd shifts.

I disagree, I don't want him on our team. First off,this isn't his first time being in trouble and probably will not be his last.  Secondly, Urban Meyer disciplined Hyde even after he wasn't charged so I don't think Meyer wants the headache.  And last, he's a great player and is hard to match that skill, but I don't think we need him with the guys we have brought in.

Andy, you took the words right out of my mouth.  I 100% agree these kids need something more, but what that is exactly needs to be sorted out by people much smarter than myself.  Let's not forget that these kids are part of a team, they themselves are not the entire team. And while we all love watching Braxton throw touchdowns or scramble for 20+ yards, we go to the games and watch the games on TV to support our team, not just one individual. These players individually don't bring in millions of dollars to the school, the team as a whole brings in that money. The OSU brand is what puts butts in the seats.  In 3-5 years this group of players is gone and another crop of athletes come rolling in.  

So figure out what these guys need, because they do need more and are an asset to the university, but they themselves are not the university.  And the university is going to continue to move forward when they move on, and we as fans are going to continue to go to the games and sit in front of our TV's.

It's easy to cherry pick the kids you want after they've been in college for 3 years and shined in the tournament.  Much harder to do that when they are coming out of high school. It's no different than football, except that there are far fewer scholarships and sometimes you miss. In our case we've missed a couple times the last few years and some great talent got away.

I'm pretty sure he is not being given a 6th year based off last years injury, so it doesn't matter that he played in 5 games.  This kid had his first ACL injury in 2009 at the end of the season, then sat out the entire 2010 season because of that injury.  Then before the 2011 season he had another injury during summer workouts and missed the entire 2011 season. We all hate the NCAA, but quit complaining every time a kid gets a medical redshirt without actually checking for facts.
