There is a little thing called ad revenue that is also streaming into The Athletic that is undoubtedly multiple times the subscription fee.  Add that to the fact that The Athletic employees are likely able to freelance and get interviewed by radio stations, etc. to earn additional income and you inch much closer to a sustainable model.

We definitely have some expensive veterans with expiring contracts that can make the deal happen though.

I didn't say they weren't a very talented team.  I'm just saying that they have a clear road to the conference championship on a daily basis.  The same is not true for OSU, Bama, and to some degree Oklahoma.

Can definitely give Clemson their props because they are performing on the field and killing it in recruiting.

Not much is made, though, of their cake walk into the playoffs every year in the horrible ACC conference.

Ok. Help me out on this guys... I used to coach track at the collegiate level (15+ years ago). From what I recall, once an athlete "starts their clock" by being on a collegiate roster they have 5 calendar years to complete their 4 seasons of eligibility. If that were the case with Enokk, then his RS year + 2 mission years would consume 3 years of his 5 year clock. Has something changed over the last however many years?? If I'm correct, then he would only have 2 years of eligibility remaining. In that scenario, you'd rather he do the 2 mission years first, then come back for his 5 year window. Curious on the responses here... thx.

Focus of home and homes should be on the recruiting hotbeds: California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, and the DMV. Always nice for a top recruit to get a front row seat to the Buckeyes kicking someone's ass on the opponent's dime!

Clearly LJ Sr. is the cream of the crop when it comes to D-Line coaches.  Regardless of age, if Mattison is viewed even in the "Top 10" of NCAA D-Line coaches, it is nothing short of a luxury to have both on staff simultaneously.  AND, it will do nothing but help us recruit the likes of Bresee, D.Henry, Tre Williams, Sawyer, etc.

Oh wait, sorry I talked recruiting... /s

Obviously everyone's biggest concern is defensive scheme and fixing the problems we saw this year.  But honestly, I kind of feel that it can only get better considering the athletes we have.

The Patterson and Fields cases are very different.  If I'm not mistaken, Ole Miss was going to be bowl ineligible for the next 2 seasons (the only remaining eligibility for Patterson), so that was the driving force behind granting him immediate eligibility.  

Now... what happened to Fields is inexcusable.  I believe that baseball player has been dismissed from the team and is likely headed elsewhere.  Difficult to argue that the same hostile environment exists if the baseball player is no longer with Georgia unless somehow there are other problems throughout the athletic department.  I'm not completely convinced he'll get immediate eligibility.

On the topic of transfers in general, I don't like the idea of granting players immediate eligibility elsewhere unconditionally.  That would create a nightmare scenario where you could have serious depth problems that you can't solve because players are transferring after the National Signing Day dates.

Sorry... that doesn't qualify as a surprise to me.  That would be more accurately described as a disappointment at this stage.
