Yeah, I'm not sure what exactly the point of the research was supposed to be.

It was almost like it was just trying to show that good NFL players can be found anywhere, and not just in the Power 5's top programs. I'm pretty sure we already know that.

Yep. Nothing to get all upset about. The article was about players from a school getting drafted and making an impact in the league. OSU hasn't had the best results with that in the last several years. 

But here's to hoping 2016 and beyond can change things.

From what I have heard (no pun intended), wherever he ended up, he wanted assurances from the coaching staff that he would receive significant playing time. Perhaps OSU wouldn't give him that.

I liked him out of high school, but from what I've observed and heard (again, no pun intended) about him, he seems like a pretty big me-first guy. I mean, the guy bailed on his team. No thanks. Enjoy Baylor.

I'm not sure I agree. 

Coaching is a 'what have you done for me lately' business. Add to that the fact that IU fans think they're still an elite level program and I bet Thad's past success wouldn't be enough to save his job.

Yep. In my opinion they're a has been program that's still running on the fumes of the past. And their fans still think they're elite...

But to me they're not even on the same planet as schools like Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, and North Carolina.
