I feel sad for people like you who value the football team more than the education, research, and community impact of the university.

Under Drake, Ohio State broke its records for graduation and retention rates, academic talent and diversity among incoming classes, research expenditures and annual fundraising. He has made “access and affordability” a focus of his presidency, implementing the first comprehensive tuition freeze for in-state studentsin 40 years. And since 2015, the university has budgeted more than $150 million in additional need-based aid to students, exceeding Drake’s goal of $100 million by 2020.

I’m so tired of the “Drake sucks” narrative. The university has been incredibly successful under his watch.

To me, a rivalry indicates the game is circled no matter how good the other team is. If Penn State was a sub .500 team, nobody would care about this game. I feel that fans often confuse rivals and competitive teams.

Minnesota should be ranked highly tomorrow, but I'm still not buying them. I believe they will lose to Iowa and Wisconsin and finish up 10-2 and out of the B1G Championship.

Looking to make the trip up for The Game. We will need 3 tickets and would like to be in a section with a decent amount of OSU fans, but it's not a requirement.

Hey athletic directors, I have three easy steps to solve your student attendance problem that doesn’t involve DJs. 

1. One less commercial break per quarter

2. Let the band play during timeouts and commercial breaks. You don’t have to fill every possible second with a DJ playing music or recognition for the 1978 5th place men’s tennis team.

3. Stop scheduling crappy teams. Not every non-conference game has to be a top ten matchup, but no more FAUs and Miami (OH)s.

Devin Smith. Yes, he got a lot of praise for his play, but we do not win the national championship without him. Basically all of Cardale’s long touchdown throws were tossups that Devin Smith somehow managed to bring in. That threat also dramatically relieved pressure on the run game, allowing Zeke to go crazy. Without him, the B1G Championship would probably have been a 17-20 point game and I don’t know if we get by Alabama.

I completely agree that football is only a small part of the tremendous university that is Ohio State. However, the value of the football team cannot be measured with only direct revenue and expenses. The football team's popularity and success plays a huge role in the university's overall brand and reputation. If you took away the athletic department, the university would lose a lot more than $12M. Applications, enrollment, and non-athletic donations would all decrease substantially.
