From the other thread.  Posted here due to DJ's request.

Anyone who witnessed anything should certainly be accountable.  Anyone who was aware but did not report holds accountability as well.  Yes, that includes any coach who was there at the time and is not working elsewhere.  This has damaged not only the direct victims but also may affect their families as well, could be thousands of people affected as victims either directly or indirectly.  No amount of rationalization can let the people who were at PSU at the time and aware of what was going on off of the hook, even if some of those individuals are now at our beloved Ohio State.  We are talking about the lives of real human beings here.  There needs to be a resolution that includes all parties.  After that then the process of healing and putting things into the past can go forward.  IMHO.

The stadium was renovated in November 2011, thanks to a $500,000 from former Buckeye Nick Swisher, adding an artificial turf field that will give the team greater access to the field throughout the year.

"I think the field is going to be great for this program. To be able to come here and help out and pay forward with this field - I couldn't be more excited," Swisher added. "But I think more than anything, when I come back to this university it brings back memories of the good times that I experienced every day. And to say that I'm a Buckeye, I couldn't be more proud. I love this university and I love the game of baseball and there's nothing in the world I'd rather be doing. It's been such an honor for me. We've been Omaha-bound for quite some time now and I think it's time we break through and get there. I hope this field helps us get to that point."  

Nick Swisher Field will be a reminder that he is 100% Buckeye.  The name has a nice ring to it....

The fans pay for every penny.  Either through increased costs of tickets, concessions,gear, and et cetera, or through increased product costs when the product is a sponsor of the team or advertises at the arena or is a sponsor of the team or the arena.  Just like all government spending is paid for by the taxpayer, all corporate spending is paid for by the customer.  In this case, the customer is the fan.  

Full Disclosure: I would sign the maximum contract too if it were me.

With 6 scholarship seniors, and along with two other seniors who play vital roles, this is a very young team.  I didn't know how young overall until I read this article.  Still, lots of talent and lots of potential.  The first 3-4 games of the year will show a lot about this team.  There will be adversity and how they deal with it will be big, and the role that the few seniors will play will be important.

Bringing in highly rated recruits is exciting.  If they end up playing up to their ratings it is awesome.  Ohio state has developed players very well in the Meyer era, at least so far for sure, so there is every reason to think that these highly rated recruits will perform at a high level in college.  

Yes, I am biased and not objective when it comes to Ohio State football, but Meyer's record of player development is a fact.

Go Bucks.

The scholarship should be honored and will be, so get him to OSU as soon as possible and let the medical team provide care and rehab for the injury.  

The injury has already happened and can't be undone, but the fix on the knee, as well as honoring the scholarship are two things that a top-notch program like OSU can and must do.  About six months to enrollment; there will still be plenty of rehab at that point.
