People enjoy talking about where people are going so it generates page clicks which generates revenue.  This isn't a science at all but it at least gives people football to talk about during the offseason.  If you think it is outrageous he is getting paid to be completely wrong then don't click on things discussing it.  The more outlandish picks (Allen going #1) will also generate more conversation and buzz about his mock vs Rosen or Darnold going 1 so that may be part of his strategy here.

This is the first year I have watched OSU's basketball since Russell's freshman year.  The past few years it looked like the players didn't care and had zero intensity.  I believe the talent was there but Matta with all his health problems couldn't bring the intensity needed.  I am liking what I see out of Holtmann so far.

Bad teams typically have stronger schedules I feel like.  In our division Rutgers will always have the toughest schedule since they play all the tough teams while we have to play Rutgers and avoid the best team (OSU).

I'm guessing no.  They probably make a lot more money now per hour then if they coached.  Probably also a lot less stressful.

Comment 16 Jan 2018

DL – Derek Barnett, Philadelphia Eagles; Myles Garrett, Cleveland Browns; Carl Lawson, Cincinnati Bengals; Dalvin Tomlinson, New York Giants

Serious question because I don't follow the NFL closely anymore but did Garrett do anything this year? I thought he was injured most of it.

Comment 12 Jan 2018

Not wanting to make a new thread on this and semi relevant to this discussion but is there any player that has yet to announce their NFL intentions?

Comment 10 Jan 2018
He has him to OSU. He flipped it today. EDIT: probably should have refreshed the page before I posted this late.

OSU lost by 30 to Iowa this year.  IOWA.  The top 5 schools in the B1G are all relatively in the same spot.  OSU/PSU/UM/UW/MSU.  Then everyone else.

Haha the delusion of this fan base is awesome.  Right now the B1G is a 3 team (OSU, PSU, UW) conference with one team on a roller coaster ride of being good and bad (MSU).  This can change easily but finishing 3rd or worse in your division for the past 5 years.  

Comment 10 Jan 2018

My guess is they can probably take all 3 and another.  I believe we are over the limit on scholarships by 1 currently.  I'm guessing (no inside information here) a few more players from last year won't be back next year between declaring for the draft, transferring, or not being invited back for a 5th year.

Sun. Jan 14 - @ Rutgers: Rutgers is Rutgers, enough said.

Tue. Feb 20 - Rutgers: .... Lol

I like to think we are much improved but after last year we probably shouldn't have this attitude.

Comment 09 Jan 2018
  1. 2014 - Like you said this is obvious
  2. 2017 - Won the B1G so some solid hardware
  3. 2015 - Most talented team just lost the one game they couldn't 
  4. 2012 - Undefeated but the ceiling was only being B1G Division Champions
  5. 2013 - At least they won the division with a shot at the B1G
  6. 2016 - The Clemson loss was hard to watch plus no B1G Division crown to claim

I went off memory here so I may have a few of the years wrong.

I doubt it will be on TV.  It is outside the stadium and I have seen reports T Swift is doing one inside.  I can't find anything 100% factual on this though.  I am a big T Swift fan admittedly, but I do not really want to listen to her music during a sporting event.  Terrible choice right there.
