Grew up in northeast Ohio. Now I don't live there. Go Bucks. My plan is to eventually retire to Youngstown or Cleveland and buy season tickets to all four teams that I love (Cavs, Browns, Indians, Bucks)

Ugh. This is the new normal in college football, I guess. Maybe he will still stay? Seems unlikely.

I am saddened, but I get it. He wants to be closer to home and he is more likely to start elsewhere.

Best of luck!

Using that logic, Ohio State is a fraud.

i want to see Ohio State win without NFL level. What type of argument is that? For Clemson, it is exceptional 

Your team only has the talent it has.

From the Washington Post:

”According to Georgia freshman Jordan Goolsby, the first student to make note of the incident via social media, Sasser allegedly yelled “put the n----- in” following an early fourth quarter miscue by sophomore starting quarterback Jake Fromm.

“Before he said it [the alleged racial slur] he kept yelling, ‘put Justin Fields in’ and then when Fromm made a mistake he yelled out “put the n----- in,” Goolsby told the Washington Post.“

The tone and slur eviscerate any and all trust immediately.

Of course he didn’t pack up and leave immediately, he wants to earn college credits and see the first semester out.

Think about how traumatizing that would be for an 18 year old kid.

Tressel doesn’t have the political cache or the academic pedigree to lead a world-leading research University. Nor should he have the skill set based on his career trajectory.

Drake could certainly harm the football program and scale it down though not cancel it outright in numerous ways:

1) Insist on same admission standards for student-athletes as the vast majority of the student population 

2) Refuse to spend as much in the arms race for assistants and coaches 

3) Cancel spending for facilities upgrades which are pivotal for recruiting.

Drake is a smart man, obviously, and he knows the costs and benefits of having a powerhouse athletic program. He hasn’t slowed the train yet

This has nothing to do with him being from Florida.

if the Bosas were from Ohio the exact same thing would have happened.

He was hurt and didn’t want to risk injury. 

We often forget the motives of players are not the same as fans.

That’s unreal. The Browns find new and innovative ways to embarrass themselves. 

If marijuana is a multi-game suspension, this has to be a multi-game suspension, no? At least he didn’t kneel for the national anthem 

My guess would be that he doesn’t play for the year, since he admitted guilt. 

At least the Cleveland Browns have evolved to white collar crime.

By the way, I am a diehard Browns fan.

The CBS Sports article is worse:

When will football culture change to the point where coaches cannot verbally abuse their players? The culture in many places is toxic.
