I'd wonder what the coach is selling during the recruiting process vs. how things are once the kids actually get to campus. it's one thing for scrubs to transfer to lesser schools, but kids who play and contribute significantly to the program? Yeah, the coaches need to do a better job of retaining them.
I'm a bit concerned about a regular season of football with OSU's decision to stay online through the end of summer school. If they aren't having Physics 101 on campus because it's too risky, I don't see how they can let student-athletes come for summer conditioning. I'm assuming that camps are canceled, too. I think this will all come down with when presidents/chancellors feel comfortable from a liability perspective with letting people back on campus.
Just remember Quintez Cephus up in Wisconsin. Same thing happened to him. Accused, kicked off the team and school. Went to trial and was acquitted in 45 minutes. They took him back, he played again and then left for the NFL.
So he's been away from basketball AND classes this whole time? There's no way he'll be ready to play right away, and that's fine. They need to kid glove his situation and make sure he eases back into everything before throwing him to the wolves at the end of regular-season play and Big 10/NCAA Championships.
Having to go 7-5 in the 3rd set of the deciding match to beat Wake Forest 4-3 in the quarters isn't all that inspiring. Wonder how they'll respond against UNC in the semis this afternoon after being on the courts so late last night.
At 4;45 on Thursday, looks like Riep posted and is out, but Wint is still in.b Hope this in another Quintez Cephus deal for these two, but they can go under the jail if they actually did what they are accused of doing.
Usually, you get suspended while the case is resolved. Maybe OSU knows more about this than what's been reported so far.
More like a coerced hostage video.
P.S. February 4, 2020 was a Tuesday night. Shouldn't these guys have been in bed getting ready for mat drills or class the next morning?
Guess they weren't paying attention when Brenda Tracy was on campus to tell her story about being the victim of sexual assault.
"On the other end, Marcus Carr used a ball screen to get space and drill a triple with 3.3 seconds remaining."
Carr shook the OSU defender (Carton?) into the next galaxy to create space for the winning three. The ball screen was a mere afterthought.
I don't love the combination of high-flying athleticism and reconstructive ankle surgery.
Hope for the best!!
This was a pretty simple case. Did the lender meet the NCAA's definition of having a preexisting relationship with Chase? Probably not. That's a problem. How much was the loan? Figure that out and apply the penalty schedule. I'm guessing a good bit of OSU's time investigating this was making sure that they were comfortable that this was the only time Chase has engaged in this sort of behavior.
The school filed on Tuesday and had a staff decision on Wednesday. They didn't even take this to the committee since they had enough precedent to make the call themselves. A real snoozer by NCAA standards.
Lots of clicks. Not a lot of real angst when you consider what really happened.
Not so great for the schools when it comes to local money. If you have a restaurant or car dealership and pay $100K to be an official sponsor of your favorite athletic department, are you going to continue doing that or spend that money directly on the quarterback to drive traffic to your business?
The message gets stale for everyone eventually so a change in scenery will probably do him some good.
6'9" 260 is still very big for the NBA. I wonder if he came down enough for people like Danny Ainge. Good start regardless, though.
A conference victory over a ranked team is a quality win. Now let's see how they do with Notre Dame.
Supermodel wife and kids. Kid with hot actress. Money. Football glory. I'm sure he's fine with the decisions he's made in life.
A great name from the past but would be better in development talking about the good old days on the banquet circuit. They need someone with a HR/headhunting background in this position if the true intent is to hustle up internships and job opportunities for the kids. He doesn't have any of that from playing in Cyprus and Switzerland.
Past time for that, but I wonder if the ship has already sailed. If he does anything this year or in the future, I'll be saying, "Where the heck was this when you had the Mitchell girl?"
When you're from Bell Buckle, Tennessee, it makes more state to be a hometown hero than head off to a different place. 3 hours to Knoxville vs nearly 7 to Columbus, get to play for Rick Barnes and be part of a great recruiting class? Can't blame the kid. Off to the next prospect for the Buckeyes! We'll find a good one.
It was a surprise. They also took an asst. coach from the women's team at Notre Dame. She has no experience on the men's side of the game and now she's a full-time assistant in the NBA. Nice work if you can get it. I'm sure she and Scoonie will have limited roles based on the rest of the staff's experience. A learning opportunity for both.
Yeah, that was a nice news dump. Between Friday afternoon and the first day of fall camp, you couldn't pick a better time to release something like this. Practice over the weekend and Pelotonia will wipe this off the map by Monday morning.
Lots of schools do the same thing. A Google search will reveal that Tennessee, Oregon and even Alabama/Clemson (gasp!) release lists of their self-reported violations. They are all inane and fan bases across the country can talk about how stupid the NCAA is.
So why do it, right? First, it's a fool's errand to think that any school reports all of its violations. They work through them up one side and down the other before they hit send on the NCAA portal to turn that stuff in. During that process, they can work their way out of reporting something because they found an interpretation that kinda, sorta makes sense, called a buddy at a different school or conference office and got some guidance, or simply say, "Yeah, we're not gonna report this one. Too risky." By turning in the stupid stuff, they build a record of being vigilant in case something happens down the road.
Why is that important? In case the NCAA ever comes loaded for bear, the school can plug in the number of secondary violations it has reported over time to show that it monitors its operations. There's a place for aggravating and mitigating circumstances when the penalties are issued. One of the mitigating factors that you'll see in pretty much every public infractions report is, "An established history of self-reporting Level III or secondary violations."
It's a pain for the coaches, kids and staff to go through this. It gives reporters something to do during slow times and we get to go off on the NCAA because Little Johnny can't have an extra doughnut at a recruiting meal.
