Maybe a silly question, but I was wondering what kind of criteria the coaching staff relies more on determining the stripe removal process.  Are they more effort/attitude-based criteria, or more skill level or skill development-based criteria?

Picking a starting quarterback for our next game is analogous to reviewing a questionable on-field call by the booth when there is no undisputed video evidence to overturn the call.  This is because as much as I am in favor starting JT, he has not done enough in the last three games to claim the starter back from Cardale.  If Urban eventually decides to start with JT, however, he might have relied on a completely different philosophy: since Cardale has had three chances to resume the presumptive well-oiled offense but failed to do so (I have to say the Cardale-led offense in the VT game was pretty good considering that it was the first game of the season), and since during the last three games JT has not done clearly worse than Cardale, who don't we give JT a chance to see whether he can turn the table as a starter?  We shall see.

His on-field records were outstanding, but I am more impressed by his positive impacts on so many people, including strangers and the ones that were not even associated with OSU.  His influence on Clarett's troubled life, even during the time when Clarett was against him, is one of the main reasons that Clarett has turned his life around.  I understand that he is not perfect, but the contributions that he has made to the society far outweigh the "mistake" that he made a the end of his tenure at OSU.

I am not sure.  If I remember it correctly, our former quarterback Joe Bausman (sp?) declared to play pro-baseball out of high school.  When he played football at OSU, he was not on scholarship.  I am not sure how he had college eligibility to play for us in the first place.  Perhaps the eligibility restriction only applies to the same sport?

I think that the moment a player declares for the draft, he automatically loses any remaining college eligibility even if he changes his mind later.

So young, so much talent, and so much life to live on.  Life sometimes is just unfair, isn't it?  Prayers to Zach, his family (especially his wife), his friends, and his teammates.  Heartbroken life events like this put our fans in perspective in life.  RIP, Zach!
