It hasn't. But I mean just search Johnny Manziel weed and you find pictures and stories of him smoking with snoop dogg or at a frat house or whatever. I realize this has nothing to do with the conversation, not to mention I'm a frequent user so I would encourage the behavior, but to say that his name has never been mentioned with weed is just absurd.

Having grown up in tsun (before seeing the light to attend OSU right around the end of the Carr era), it's interesting/humorous to gauge how the blue khaki fans' reason with having a crazy goofball for a head coach-especially in comparison to Meyer and his no nonsense professional demeanor. 

At this point all the fans I know are totally drinking the "Harbaugh the Savior" kool-aid (which, why wouldn't they be I guess) but as soon as you bring up things like the no-shirt pics, or the Cowherd interview, or any one of the onion articles, they get super defensive and try to play it off like "Seriously? Who cares about some stupid [insert gaff here]? It's all about the product on the field!" And I get that; I guess I'm just glad we don't have to deal with an embarrassing uncle. And of course it helps that Meyer > Harbaugh

As I was just scrambling to screen grab pics to be the first to text out the news, I was saying pretty much exactly the same thing; I used to be anti- just from a traditionalist's stand point, but as long as it's just one game (and especially since it's against PSU-the self anointed "white out" kings) I'm cool with it. I'm sure the boys will be pumped up coming out under the lights as well! Go Bucks.

For sure. I happened to be living in Kalamazoo a few years back and was at the WMU hockey game which was his first public address to the students/fans. He came out on skates with a hockey stick and pumped up the crowd (which has no football tradition to speak of) to a level that got me excited for Bronco football! Now he's no Urban Meyer, but his future is certainly bright

Though I tend to agree with you about a Non-Power 5 team getting in, I do have to say that Boise's schedule is decent enough that if they blow through Washington, at BYU, at Virginia in the non conference enroute to an undefeated season, mixed with only one or two teams with 1 or fewer losses... Then maybe.
