Yeah, but is he better than his dad? Probably not. Up for debate maybe. Don't think I've seen his work personally.

He's not even the best coach in his family. Probably third.

Side note... Is a black check like a black AmEx card?

Admittedly I did not read all the comments, but I think there is a way to get around title nine. I think if they come up with a type of profit sharing program, then the popular revenue generating programs will have the ability to pay players. They could also place names on the back of jerseys, use the players likeness, and have a contract with the players that have the proceeds from jersey sales divided amongst the whole team. 

I'm sure there are other creative ways to skirt title IX when it comes to paying these guys. I don't even think it has anything to do with title IX to be honest. I think a Lacrosse scholarship is reward enough. I don't see the University making millions of dollars of the backs of the Lacrosse team. I haven't done the research on which teams are profitable and which are operating on state funds, but if the sport is profitable then I think compensation on top of a scholarship is due.

I am also pretty confused about the Campbell anointment. The numbers and the film don't support the rhetoric. Campbell was a running back they tried to force into a receiver position. I think he fits the hybrid role much better, but I would still rather see McCall own that spot.

I am looking forward to breakout seasons from TMac, Dixon, Victor, Hill, and Mack. Any of our frosh production would be icing on the cake.

Amen. All this faux outrage is the problem. Almost anything can be taken out of context. Show the whole video, and I believe she pulls the armory out on her own. From the looks of it she is proud of the investment she is wearing. I will care when she makes a formal, or informal complaint.

Isn't Florida SEC. Still wondering who 5 is.

edit: DUH... 4 out of 5.

I second that. Dude was reeking havoc when he was in. Those long runs got a lot shorter. I saw him get skinny a couple of times and disrupt the play in the backfield.

I believe  it will  come down to what he does against Michigan State. They have been the Achilles' heel as of late. If he has a subpar performance in Norman there is plenty of time to recover. 

TTUN will be icing on the cake.

IIRC we had the same situation with Elliot when we were recruiting Dontre. I believe Elliot was told he would be the only RB and started to consider the home town team. I honestly think he would have taken a good look at Mizzou anyway, but i think  you can see the correlation.

I believe if OSU is looking to do better at his position, it is fair game for him to see if he can as well without  people saying he is afraid of competition.
