Interesting that he's choosing not to appeal. 

If he did, he would probably get it reduced to 4 games like Greg Hardy did, but I suppose it's a smart move from a PR perspective.

 Archie was never a candidate for the OSU job

A lot had happened in the summer to lead to the time table of Matta's firing. You had JaQuan Lyle transfer and Darius Bazley decommit. Neither look like a big deal now, but at the time they were your best returning scorer on the team and the best prospect in the state. You also had Matta miss on some key targets that many thought we had a chance to get. Gene even said when asked about the time frame that the fails in recruiting played a major role. I think it's obvious that had Gene made the decision earlier when Miller was still available that he would have considered Archie. Would Archie have chosen OSU over IU? No idea. But to suggest he wouldn't have been a candidate when he was the hottest name in the country that year and had OSU ties is a little bold. 

Holtmann was the only coach ever interviewed

It has been confirmed that Gene met in person with McDermott. Still up in the air whether he actually offered him the job or not.

To be in bubble talk is truly because this team has generally overachieved all year.

Disagree. If you go back to the beginning of the season, the majority of people on here said their expectations for this season was to be a fringe NCAA tournament team. That's exactly what they are right now. 

In the last 10 years though, the current resume of the team wouldn't even be considered for a birth. This has been such a crazy year in the power 5 that they are actually still "on the bubble"

Thanks for the summary before my time. I can see why they would be painful. The one's that hurt the most in my era are '13 and '15. Even more so than 06' and '07. 

The 2013 team may not have been the best team in the country, but I firmly believe that they would have gone on to beat Notre Dame in the championship had they taken care of business in Indy against Sparty (Give Hyde the Damn ball). The 2015 team, as we all agree, was easily the best team in the country. The fluke loss in the rain was especially painful, but it gets even more painful each year, as that team's resume even with that loss would have been good enough to get into the playoffs literally every year except '15.

I understand leaving Wisconsin. He probably saw the writing on the wall with Mertz. I don't understand the move to FSU though. I know Blackman was considering leaving for awhile but it seems like he is staying put, unless he knows something we dont. Left a situation where he was going to have to compete for another situation where he's going to have to compete.

I feel like the outcome could have been a lot more extravagant than it actually wound up being. Will be interesting to see how schools try to find loopholes though. "Oh you need a car to drive across campus to class, well here is your brand new Mercedes for educational purposes." I doubt it ends up that far though. Realistically it will probably end with athletes getting free MacBooks and iPads and trips like the OP speculated.

I am for players benefiting off of their own likeness in a regulated format, so if California wants to argue that some players aren't getting their actual worth then fine.

However, the notion that full scholarship athletes are living a "poverty" lifestyle is insulting to actual people who are living below the poverty line. 

Housing? All paid for.
Food? Now unlimited.
Healthcare? Free while in school.
World class training facilities and staff? Yep. 
Stipend for other miscellaneous entertainment expenses? Got it now. 

Comment 15 Feb 2019

Guys like Muhammad and Andre Wesson aren't the most polished offensive guys, but they contribute enough to be on the floor. 

The problem is guys like Jallow and Woods, who are good defenders but give you almost nothing on offense. They're guys that should only be on the floor when surrounded by 4 offensive weapons. This team doesn't have that. You could argue they have 3 in Jackson, Washington, and Kaleb Wesson. However, Jackson has been insane with his turnovers so he has been a liability to put on the court at times, and Kaleb can't stay on the floor due to foul trouble.

I literally did this same thing 3 years ago for my Bachelor party. Spring game during the day and went out at night. 

Tickets are usually 5 bucks for GA or 15 for premium seats. The premium seats sell out but you can usually get GA all the way up until the day before. The premium are essentially where the huge section of red bucket seats are on the home sideline. 

They sell them online through ticketmaster and usually through some sort of restaurant or business they have a partnership through. I remember you could buy them at Donatos for a few years in a row. Don't think they have released them to the public yet.

Even for Etienne it's going to be tough with Lawrence there probably overshadowing him. 

Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin probably has the best chance with the system they have, but even at that I think he'll have to have a few QBs drop off a bit. 

Comment 11 Feb 2019

It's a QB award. Only 3 RB's have won it this millennium (Bush, Ingram, Henry)

While Dobbins may be more proven at this point than Fields, it's just easier to do as a QB. 

Comment 11 Feb 2019

1. Mackey
2. Carver-Hawkeye
3. Breslin
4. Assembly Hall
5. Crisler
6. Williams
7. Kohl Center
8. Xfinity
9. Welsh-Ryan
10. The Schott
11. Assembly Hall- Illinois (15 years ago this would have been #1 or #2)
12. Nebraska
13. Penn St
14. Rutgers

This is just my personal list based off of what the atmosphere seems like on TV. I've only been to Breslin, Crisler, and the Schott. Would love to hear a former players perspective of this.

Comment 10 Feb 2019

The entire game I was muttering "Are we ever going to slip one of these ball screens?" Indiana was hedging higher and harder than any team I've watched in awhile. 

Glad Coach Holt saved it for the right moment. 

Comment 10 Feb 2019

Understandable that people are upset, but obviously it was a business decision based on ratings. You may hate some of the content that 97.1 has, but with them being first to the market and getting connections with OSU and the CBJ, it was always going to be an uphill battle for another station to come in and compete. 

Comment 03 Feb 2019
1. Clemson (13-0) 2. Alabama (12-1) 3. Ohio State (12-1) 4. Georgia (12-1) Clemson runs the table. OSU 1 loss is to Nebraska, but avenges that loss in Indy. Bama loses to LSU but beats previously undefeated Georgia in SEC champ. Committee wants to put UGA at 3, but doesn't want a rematch so they put them at 4 and OSU at 3. Oklahoma loses 2. ND loses 2. Texas loses 2. All of Pac12 has 3+ losses. Bama beats OSU, Clemson beats UGA and we get Bama/Clemson for the 87th time. Clemson goes back to back.
