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)

Yup. Drake going back to lead it is a heckuva promotion.

Miami (FL) is a great school. Lots of kids who have money and want to party on the beach and get a brand name education. 

Comment 24 Aug 2020

It is still a highly regarded education. If I had to list the things I love about Ohio State, athletics wouldn't be in the top 10. 

Class of 2008 and I invited professors to baby showers, weddings, etc, over a decade later!

Accessibility to higher education is a privilege, not on a right.  

If the student is only taking online classes and never steps on campus, the student handbook and Code of Student Conduct still applies, for better or worse. 

Akin to the same way an employee can be fired for breaking the morality clause of a contract. 

Covid-aside, should a student who is accused of breaking the law be permitted to attend classes if haven't been found guilty?

So, this only works if your college will take the credit. Some of the elite liberal arts schools and too 25 research institutions have made it clear they will only award general elective credit. 
 

At Ohio State? Sure, but it won't work everywhere

Ohio State football is one small part of The Ohio State University.

The faculty, who attended my wedding, the classes, the intellectual exploration, the friendships that have lasted a lifetime, and the personal growth all matter more than the gridiron.

I graduated from Ohio State in 08 and still email a professor or two. Those relationships are priceless.

I will miss football, but I miss being a student and having the time to take classes at Ohio State and learn for the sake of learning more.

Whether you agree or disagree, I appreciate that she TOOK a position. It would have been easy for President Johnson to say, "I am not the President yet officially, so I will abstain."

I will lose my Election Day gambling special of a candidate and MAC team parlay.

Coaches have guaranteed salaries, hard to see training not continuing.
