Or maybe he just preferred Gainesville and the environment at UF over tOSU. Either way best of luck to the young man, hopefully he has a great career and represents Ohio well. Anybody think the staff goes harder after the Jefferson kid from Texas now, or do we just take 2 LBs? Jefferson's already named OSU as one of his officials and I can't see anyone not wanting a 5 star LB with a 4.39 forty time. Thoughts? BIRM?

Some people need to learn to just let things go. He didn't owe the city of Cleveland anything and he never will. If he comes back its because he considers the place home, afterall, he could go anywhere he wants. Best of luck to him in wherever he chooses to play next in HIS career. As an Ohioan I hope its in Cleveland again, even if its only for a short period. Nice to have the best player in Ohio.

Screw that I still prefer to beat a #2 Michigan and knock them out of the playoffs. Nothing better. Its fun seeing them lose to App State once in a while but more fun taking their dreams away. Harbaugh might be able to make that happen, Ten Years War 2.0

IF, he is still a Buckeye...Might make more sense for Urbs to open a schollie for someone who is smart enough to value what they have. Not saying I didn't make mistakes in college but if he is found guilty on all charges it might make sense. Either way I agree he is in my doghouse and will have to work hard to emerge.

Oh it will be here sooner than you think. If UTexas has been doing it for years, I'm willing to bet tOSU could make it happen. But honestly, tickets should be like any other personal item you own. Much like a trophy or award, you should be allowed to trade them for cash & tattoos.

In N Out is king of the fast food burger. Call me elitist, but lets be honest there's nothing like a real hamburger made somewhere that doesn't have a drive thru. As to the nonsense about the SEC being at another level, c'mon. Over the last couple of years 85-95% of the SEC would be at the same level as tOSU, Oregon, Stanford, Oklahoma, ND, MSU, FSU and Clemson.

I can see how people question the moves for sure, however Rutgers has been a decent team over the last 10 years. If they got another Schiamo in there, who knows, they could be a good mid tier BIG 10 squad. Having the BIG moniker can only help recruiting. It will be a tough BIG east division to move uphill in though.

HILLTOP you are probably right, but with a small class 2nd is not bad. Better star average than PSU for sure. The only way OSU jumps to 1st is if by some miracle Sweat commits along with Settle. From what I have read it seems commitments are much mmore likely from Hilliard, Harris, Cornell and Kirk. BUT if they landed all 6 along with a Baker or Scott or Jefferson then it might be possible. That said all of the aforementioned are sick athletes anyone would love to have.

I have lived all over the place. Ohio, Texas, Massachusetts, Florida and NY and havijg a car is nice anywhere. If there is a good subway it can be a substitute, BUT a bike, nah no thanks. Sometimes you don't have the energy, extra time (distance requires), and/or you can't show up soaking or sweating (weather). Like it or not, cars are still pretty convenient (and I live in a city that loves biking). Austin

Chemicalwaste I can't say I agree here. What will teaching kids skills needed to live life as a pro athlete do for the vast majority of kids who don't move to the next level? The skills you speak of have little carry over to other fields. Are we teaching 'contract law' or how to be a lawyer? Money management courses? Then get a degree in Finance, not one course. Whereas I know plenty of psych majors (which is a great degree program) using the foundations of psych and MS degrees in psych for ...wait for it...psychology, & business and medicine/insert field where working and communicating with people is necessary. What justification is there for offering the 'educational' degree program you propose? The skills you speak of are good for athletes, don't get me wrong, but they aren't a degree.
