It's not like football players don't get falsely accused of sexual assault. 


Maybe Snead thinks he caught a break and is happy to start over in Iowa. Maybe he thinks he was thrown under the bus since he didn't do anything wrong but OSU wanted to appear to be doing the right thing. Guess we'd have to hear from him before that could be determined.

If the Big Ten treats baseball as a minor sport, they need to reduce the salaries and budgets to reflect that. It would free up resources for sports that aren't minor and make this sort of stuff more tolerable for fans. Big Ten teams didn't win one game against a school from a Power 5 conference. Took losses to McNeese State, Jacksonville State, Illinois State, UCONN, Creighton and Indiana State. Take McNeese State and Jacksonville State off the table because they have weather advantages over Big Ten schools. The others? I'd love to see their budgets/salaries compared to schools in the Big Ten.

With only 22 Division I programs in men's volleyball, I would think that an opening at a school like Ohio State, especially with a new facility opening up this fall, would mean that the very best would have been interested in the opportunity. I hope Burch clearly beat those others out and wasn't the easy hire because he's already on campus.

I feel sorry for all of them. He was making nearly $350K per year. She was the ex-wife being supported by someone making nearly $350K per year. Doesn't he have a child with a new girlfriend, too? You know that kid wasn't suffering too much on Daddy's salary. Imagine losing a job and going from $35K a year to nothing. Now multiply that by 10. I bet the level of stress for all of them is incredible, and the kids will end up suffering if the adults can't figure out a way to make it work.

35 years gets you 3 sentences from Uncle Gene? I guess one sentence per national championship is the going rate for non-revenue sports these days. Pete is a great coach and a better person. All the best to him 

“Pete Hanson’s Buckeye career embodied our mantra of ‘The People. The Tradition. The Excellence.’ He’s found success on the court and molded young men off of it, preparing them for life after college," Gene Smith said in a statement. "Pete leaves a lasting legacy at The Ohio State University.”

To be fair, he was a JUCO only because the coach at the school where he signed in high school (Paul Hewitt at George Mason) got fired. He went JUCO as an academic qualifier so he could play a year there and then go D1 without having to sit for a year. He wasn't JUCO because of grades or talent. He just made a choice that not every kids makes. Good for him, I say. Good luck going forward, C.J.

I promise you that the money top kids like Joey Bosa and Cardale jones bring in far exceeds the value of anything provided in return. I'm assuming that this new initiative will be for all 30+ sports. It's a great benefit for the rowing team and the men's golf team. For football and men's basketball? There isn't enough you can give those kids for all that they bring in to the rest of the department and the university.

I cringed when Ty Tucker was honored with the new tennis facility. Does he deserve it? Heck yes. Probably deserves more than that. Let the guy retire, though. You can name it Buckeye Tennis Center now and rename it once Tucker hangs it up.

As for Uncle Gene, this great naming opportunity comes a mere 192 days after his suspension for unsavory behavior ended. For all the things Ohio State does well, avoiding being tone deaf just isn't on the list.
