Seyekcu - I certainly wouldn't want to be a black athlete and represent a racist student body. As an athlete, you play for yourself AND for the fans. If the fans are a bunch of racists hillbillies, maybe you need to sit out. They certainly don't appreciate you.
And he's not stopping anything he loves. He has a full ride scholly to Ohio State. All his hopes and dreams on the football field can still come true.
Let's not forget, Kiner choosing LSU is burning scUM. Many people thought Kiner was scUM bound.
The California state university system, the largest four-year public university system in the U.S., cancelled in person classes in the fall. So there's that. I'm guessing that means all athletics facilities will be closed too.
We've never seen a D-end at Ohio State as dominating as Chase. So to compare him to Chase is a little unfair. But I do think Zach is going to develop into a great player.
What's Ted had, a 15-year NFL career? He's been a monster in the league. He's a very wealthy man.
We need to recognize power 5 college football as a minor league NFL system and just full on pay players. There's nothing amateur about power 5 CFB. Name, likeness, and image is a good start. However, I'm sure the devil will be in the details, and the NCAA will come out with fine print that f*cks the players.
Is there "guard rails" on Gene's $2m salary?
Kmp - This is a ridiculous argument. First of all, many of the athletes don't wish to go to college, but are forced as it's the only legitimate NFL minor league system. If you give me something for free that I don't want, what's it worth to me? So those values your quoting are meaningless. In the words of Cardale Jones "We didn't come here to play school"
Secondly, what's the cost per individual player? It's not much. Per player it's probably $20-$25k per year? Meanwhile many of the coaches are getting paid over a million. School administrators are making millions. Gene Smith makes $2m a year. So the players are making everyone around them rich, while receiving a paltry 20K a year in benefits? This is hardly a fair system.
It would be a good strategy for scUM to pick some of the leftover Ohio kids. Ohio kids play big in the the game, and will play with a chip on their shoulder if passed over by tOSU. The leftover Ohio boys are better than recruiting the state of Mass, lol.
This is why players want to sit out bowl games. JK was hurt in the playoff game, sat out the combine. Now it's costing him in the draft. JK should've gone ahead of Jonathon Taylor.
Unfortunately, Joe is in a losing situation in Cincy. The franchise is not committed to winning. Hopefully his career isn't in ruin in a few years, and another team gives him a shot. David Klingler and Akili Smith are classic examples of the bungals ruining QB's.
We're just taking anyone at this point. Hey Chris, I'm 42 years old and 20+ years past my prime. I'll play.
I would hope decisions to play or not play, or a timeframe of returning is decided by the NCAA not individual conferences. What if you have some conferences that decide to play, and others who don't? Based on this article, sounds like it's up to the conferences.
All I gotta says is good luck stopping this kid you scUM bastards.
Not sure he's worthy of a "Boom"
"not a world beater" explains it well.
Okay, the transfer portal is happening everywhere I get that. But we need to use the portal to our advantage. The football team is doing an excellent job at this. On the football team, we're getting great value in the portal. The basketball squad has guys transferring, and we're not replacing with equal or better talent.
