Only partially true.

Being drunk slows reaction timing significantly, which provides the "loose as a goose" mode. You can't stiffen up to something you don't see coming.

The survivability is more linked the supression of the immune system that alcohol provides. It prevents swelling from occuring, which often diminishes the impact of injury.

Whoa Phil, we're not the SEC, we can't just start bidding wars.

We, as most schools do, overbook our athletes with grants and scholarships and stipends. This means they get more money then it costs for tuition/room and board, which means $$ in their pockets. Some pay bills, some rent cars at outrageous deals, and some just buy a closet full of Jordans.

Hell even my wife got a stipend as a collegiate rower, in addition to her other "financial aid." She definitely wasn't rolling in it, but it helped pay the bills.

There's a lot of  crap passed around that he's just an okay coach. All bluster and no muster. Especially in the first year or two while at Ohio State. People blamed player errors on Coombs, and looked for any scapegoat they could find. During the Withers era this was most prominent.

I happen to disagree quite heavily with that assessment, and the recent success is due to the foundation that he (and others) built. He was a fantastic coach at Colerain, Cincinnati, and now Ohio State.
