If all of this is nothing then why does the federal government have a conviction rate over 90%?

I'm guessing our crunch time D line eventually becomes Bosa and Young on the outside with Jones and Jackson inside with Cooper replacing Jackson in the rushmen package.

I know we rotate a lot, but we do that to have our horses fresh in the 4th (2017 Penn St. game)

The overall value of the scholarship isn't the same between sports, or even within teams. Football and basketball are what's called "headcount" sports. You have 85 scholarships in football which means you have 85 players on full scholarship. 

For other sports, they get a certain number of scholarships and the coaches divide them up how they see fit. Some athletes might get more money than other athletes as long as the total number of scholarships does not exceed the cap. For example, if you have 2 available scholarships, you can give 2 full scholarships or 4 half scholarships or 1 full, 1 1/4, and 1 3/4 scholarship. 

So its an error to assume that all athletes at OSU are on full rides and don't pay a dime.

Believe he said "I'm 220 strong, I'm big out here" but could be mistaken

It looks like it's not just the backpack, but all Nike sale stuff has an additional 25% off. They have tons of OSU stuff on sale right now. You can get the Week 0 Training Shoes that are normally $110 for $41 right now.

The reason he has us as a 2 seed is because he is  projecting us to get the automatic bid by winning the Big Ten tournament. Should this happen, I don't think a two is out of the question, even if we lose a few more games. If we don't win the conference tournament, I think a 3-4 is more likely if we continue on our current trajectory.

I live in Nashville and have a lot of friends that are TN fans/alums. They were fed up with Currie, but are probably more fed up with Haslam and are waiting for him to go to jail from the Pilot trial. They think that he's calling the shots behind the scenes and it won't turn around until he's gone.

I don't like to gamble on games that I am already emotionally invested in.

Bingo. This is the sole reason I don't touch OSU games anymore. I learned my lesson when we were @ Penn St. in 2014 I bet us to cover as double digit favorites. We ended up winning in OT but didn't cover and I remember being happy we won but pissed I lost money.

I checked the TN HS football message boards to see if this had any traction and it looks like there's a rumor of another side to the story where one of our coaches visited practice and didn't like the amount of hitting so he told the Wray brothers to sit out of practice and only play games. The Franklin coach (Webb) didn't like that and therefore didn't let them play.

I'm more inclined to believe the family's side of it than some commenters on a TN HS football board.

Are the pending funds also included in the current funds or no? I went back and looked and it seems like they've been recorded different ways each week. In week 1 it had the pending funds taken out of the current number while in week 2 it didn't seem to be that way. 

If the pending funds are included in the current funds, it would look like 11W has lost money overall so far. If it's excluded, it would look like they've won about $75.
