Not a tough call at all.  They are going on probation and will lose scholarships.  No way Schiano even considers it.  Greg is 51 so he is starting to get to a point where his next HC gig is likely his last.  You don't make that move from OSU unless you're like 40 not 51.

I get SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO tired of this kind of ignorance  ^^^

You CANT pay just the football players. Under federal law, you would have to pay ALL scholarship athlete's and there is absolutely nowhere near the kind of money to do that.

People that spout this kind of stupidity are utterly IGNORANT of the facts.

All but 20 athletic programs in the entire country are LOSING MONEY right now per a recent NCAA study.

And that's under the current model.  Do you want to destroy collegiate sports?  Keep up the stupid whining about paying players I can assure you sports will go bye-bye.  The second the school pays them they are under labor law as employee's and Labor law PROHIBITS discrimination of ANY kind.  What the university gives to one employee must be made available to ALL.  That means health insurance, retirement plan savings ect.... it also means scholarships for athletics goes bye-bye as you can not make them available to athletes and not available to every other employee.

the weather had nothing to do with that loss... it was the epic 4th quarter meltdown and we still almost escaped with a win.  Heck even if the FG is missed instead of blocked we probably escape with a win we were leading 21-17.... they would have had to have started that drive from their own 28.... they had to big plays in a drive in the middle of the second half outside of that, their offense really wasn't doing a lot

Spot on.  Instead of properly identifying what is the underlying cause people go off in all kinds of directions.

Fact:  The black community has by a WIDE margin, the highest percentage of single-parent "families" at almost 70%.  The destruction of the nuclear family is playing a very, very large role in this crisis.  The black community makes up ~ 13% of the population yet contributes a disproportionate 52% of the murders in this country.  

Liberal policies over the last ~50 years have essentially destroyed the nuclear family in the inner city and we as a society seem puzzled as to why there are these issues with this community and seeming have no answers when the answer is as plain as the nose on your face.    Young men (especially) need the influence of a father during adolescence and early adulthood.  When fathers are absent from the scene this is the enviable result when a community has a large population of young men being raised without the influence of a good dad in the picture.

Ummm can we get our FACTS correct, please?

He was NOT DUI.  It was public intoxication.  That means he wasn't driving a vehicle or in one.  35 hours community service and being forced to take the alcohol abuse program is more than a reasonable punishment.  God forbid a college student to have a little too much to drink  I mean you were such a saint in college right?

Uhm, seriously????????  2017  National Coach of the year, 2017 Big East Coach of the year.  “Chris Holtmann is one of the five best coaches in all of college basketball,” CollegeInsider.com’s Angela Lento.
And you wonder why he is paid so much?  Good grief some of you are really out of touch. 

Some on here whine about his record at Gardner_Webb but he took over a team that had gone 8-21 the previous year.  In his 3rd season, they went 21-13.  

I say that he comes in and we get a BIG bump in recruiting.... Im super excited I think this guy is a HOME RUN hire.  Young and shows he can get the most out of the talent he has to work with.

Uh, I hate to be a debbie downer but if a guy from Creighton is passing on the job what does that say about A) the condition of the program and B) how lowly the position is currently viewed 

While I am glad the guy passed I am actually more concerned that he did pass on the job.
