In a way it was common sense, it was the media and fans hitting them over the head again and again with a stick named common sense.

The only problem I see is that Carson Palmer might prima donna the whole thing and make it difficult for Cardale to learn anything from him.

I'm with OSU78 on this one. Not to get too political, but the NCAA is clearly given a de facto anti-trust exemption (I'm not aware, nor can I quickly find anything legally done to protect it), and positions itself as the easiest way for student athletes to compete and work with schools.  It all comes down to the same Tatgate thing for me, where Posey had a landscaping job that yes, he may not have gotten if he weren't a OSU football player, but it paid a market rate that the company's union had agreed to, however, that market rate was above the NCAA's limits, so Posey got in trouble and suspended.  Unfortunately, the business in question decided to let the matter go, rather than challenge the NCAA's blatant punishment of an individual and a business (the owner got a show cause and told not to be a booster any longer) for following state and federal law.  Basically, Mark Emmert is fortunate he has bodyguards, because if given the opportunity, I would tar and feather him, and ride him out of town on a rail, literally.  He's a rat, and General Sherman is ashamed of what that former president of LSU has done.

Toro personal paces are awesome.  My dad has had one since 2000, still going strong, and totally worth the $350 for it at the time.  I went from being able to do the yard (1.5 acres) in 1 hr 45 min to doing it in just over 1 hr, because you can jog slowly for the long runs of it.  Plus, that sucker is handy where they live now, since my dad still mows the top of the meadow with it (far too steep for the ride on).

That is kind of surprising, since I can't think of any great Oregon State Wideouts developed or recruited by Reilly (Chad Johnson and T.J. Housmanzadeh were recruited as JUCOs by Dennis Erikson).
