5. Whoever is coach of the University of SEC

6. Kelly (intentionally vague on which one)

Watchlist for future additions:


Frosty at Nebraska

Next coach of tsun (Campbell?)

locksley at Maryland

Not a fan but recognize they are entertaining in college football:

The Mullet





Lastly, will be curious to see how I feel about Urban when he takes over at USC. He did bring tOSU a natty and elevated recruiting, and he did get thrown under the bus in a public way by the Drake. Would feel better if he faced Bucks and lost 41-14 to tOSU

CS, let’s remove the terms salary and payment and just use the term income for a moment. Per the IRS, there are many forms of income (or if you prefer, compensation) other than cash.  Many benefits through a job are considered additional income even though the employee receives no cash. Life insurance is one example. Trips for doing your job and achieving sales goals is another benefit for which you’d get no cash payment but you’d owe income taxes.  Scholarships are generally not taxable for degree seeking students, but they can be taxable for say, a research assistant who is at the school performing a task but not truly there to get a degree. There are many examples but let’s not argue the Internal Revenue Code sections. My point is that SOME student athletes receive benefits that would be considered income in other circumstances and in other circumstances, income comes with restrictions.  And I think I get your point that cash income is what kids at that age prefer the most.

I’m still not sure of my position on the matter, but just for a point of reference from the corporate world, people sign and abide by non-compete agreements regularly. If they leave an employer, they can’t call on the same clients for a year. It’s the Corp equivalent of sitting for a year. The logic that both sides agree to is that the employee learns things from the employer (and it would be unfair to use them to someone else’s advantage. Baldwin got paid a scholarship, and for those arguing players should get paid, that could be the considered the right salary for an injured 3rd/4th string QB. And Baldwin’s got coaching from Day, which could be the equivalent of the corporate Intellectual Property. So there’s a precedent.

Once I had a ”girl” on Rocky Top 
Half bear, the other half cat, 
Wild as a mink, but sweet as soda-pop 
I still dream about that. 

so 100,000 people sing this as loud as they can after PATs? Kinda glad they don’t score a lot.

Rocky Top" (Played after the PAT) 

Wish that I was on old Rocky Top 
Down in the Tennessee hills. 
Ain't no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top 
Ain't no telephone bills. 
Once I had a ”girl” on Rocky Top 
Half bear, the other half cat, 
Wild as a mink, but sweet as soda-pop 
I still dream about that. 
Rocky Top, you'll always be 
Home sweet home to me. 
Good old Rocky Top, 
Rocky Top, Tennessee. 
Rocky Top, Tennessee. 
Once two strangers climbed old Rocky Top 
Lookin' for a moonshine still. 
Strangers ain't come down from Rocky Top,
Reckon they never will. 
Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top 
Dirt's too rocky by far. 
That's why all the folks on Rocky Top 
Get their corn from a jar.

Mattison has proven himself over his career so I don’t need Winovich and Gary to convince me he’s a fine coach. Plus, winovich is emotional and exaggerates and Gary’s production doesn’t reconcile with his praise for his coach. 

My concern about Mattison is that he was at tsun so long it will take him a season to adjust to being a Buckeye, yet he will only be a Buckeye for a short time. 

The comments about Washington and Barnes were more interesting.

Sending good thoughts from up the peninsula!

Comment 15 Feb 2019

Maybe Ohio State is next to ND in a drop down menu and Loy hit O rather than N with his thumb by mistake. He races to put in 1000s ND CBs, he’s bound to make a mistake or two. 

Comment 08 Feb 2019

How could tsun possibly be salty? Fields has a legit racism case for immediate eligibility, yet tsun paid lawyers millions to get bogus immediate eligibility for Patterson.  Why did Patterson get eligible, because he didn't see the sanctions coming to Old Missy that everyone on the planet saw coming? Oh, riiiiight. Tsun should just be silently happy they slipped one past

Nester has been looking for reasons to go somewhere other than tOSU. If he didn’t use reason, he’d find another to fit his narrative. In the end, it doesn’t matter. He picked somewhere else and the Buckeyes recruited someone else. Moving on. Maybe  his name will pop up in a couple years in the free agent portal, maybe in 5 years on a long list of players attending the NFL combine, maybe never. Don’t care anymore.

So glad to learn this!  It’s heartwarming to know there are people willing to be donors.  Stay strong, Calpoppy!
