Actually, it was the selling out for the NBA which crushed ESPN. That's what triggered the major collapse (over 100 million) in their revenue YoY, and then lead to the resulting firings. The culture has never been the same since and they have done a horrific job by trying to come up with new or modified programming. The NBA contract ESPN signed ended them as a the top, and trusted, sports network.

If theres one thing that USCs entire Administration is known for is a toxic environment for professional stability within the Athletic Department and by extension the Football program. Gene Smith has a well-oiled money making machine at OSU. He'd be risking a ton just to go out to USC, where the state of the football program seems to dictate how the AD is viewed. Just not worth it as his age IMO.

The team is going to get thing settled down. Still a 10-win+ Caliber roster. Kitchens looked lost, but thats probably due to the insane amount of penalties. Browns did get jobbed a couple of times but not enough to warrant too much complaining. They ran some very weird plays on short yardage situations. Chubb is too damn good not to use like Zeke. They'll get it figured out.

TAMU could make any major mistakes to have a chance against Clemson. Thats going to be your ball game right there. Lawrence and Co about to run TAMU out of the building.

OSU 27 UC 24...UC scores late TD to push the score to within 3. OSU gets onside kick and takes a knee. UC has lead heading into 4th quarter at 17-14. UC will control the ball and clock, OSU will have a couple turnovers, but Fields and Company survive.

Based on the recruiting the last couple of years, I believe it is time to really evaluate personnel on the field and determine whether or not they play with the right amount of hunger to develop consistency. The laziness and lack of effort, especially on the OL needs to be addressed this week. UC is going to bring all kinds of pressure on Fields and the OL and he are going to have to adapt and ball out. Next Saturday is going to be a dogfight and the Bucks better be ready for it. 

Comment 31 Aug 2019

They have to stop getting Fields hit. Do shorter drops and dish the ball. Throw down field a few times. Open up Dobbins. Fields has been hit way too much this game. I am not even sure what the coaching strategy was during the 2nd quarter and obviously things have to change for the 2nd half. 

Comment 02 Aug 2019

If it's.a concern about moving away from the run that scared off the top two RBs on the board, then going to Texas is kind of laughable considering their Offensive rushing attach is primarily drawn from the QB. I think OSU's staff got played by all three targets and the insiders reported things based on incomplete information. You don't go from 100% to a school to all the sudden the kids gone in a couple of days. OSU coaches and recruiting insiders got played. 

Comment 30 Jul 2019

Losing another top Ohio player to Clemson would simply signal how 2nd Tier OSU is compared to Bama and Clemson. Whatever they do, whether legal or illegal, to convince kids to go there is pretty incredible. As for RB recruiting, OSU seriously needs to revisit the message they plan on sending to top RBs post Meyer. Whatever it is, doesn't matter. Can Hartline recruit LBs and RBs too?

Comment 04 Mar 2019

Assuming what draft experts think happens, happens then the G-men is a decent spot for him. Nice weapons, will probs take over the starting spot. Plus, Saquon as a backfield mate is pretty awesome.

Feel bad for Mertz...I mean, the kid will win 3-4 B1G West titles only to get crushed in the B1G title game. Silver lining is they will lull Miami/Louisville to sleep in the Gator Bowl (if thats still a thing) every year. 

Comment 27 Jan 2019

Miam is a LOOOOOONG way from being relevant. They get the benefit of playing in a horrible conference, but even still, they'd have to win the conference (beat Clemson of course) to get into the playoff. I doubt that happens, but hey I love the imagination. 

Comment 26 Jan 2019

I mean he did a historic job; but, the 2015 season is a severe disappointment still. Poorly coached games led to closer-than-should-have-been results as well as a stupid loss to an underwhelming Michigan State team. Took a loss to wake them up, which is essentially how every OSU team operated except the 2012 team. He should not have lost to Iowa, Purdue, aforementioned Michigan State (perhaps the 2013 B1G title game as well), and not VT in '14. Should have had at least 1 more national title and, although he had an awesome run, I think that'll be what I remember about his tenure.
