I think you may be wrong on your OAC history. Wittenburg left the OAC along with several other schools to create the NCAC when D3 was formed in 1984. Mount's success in football didn't start until the early 90s. The only school that left the OAC in recent memory is Hiram when they joined the NCAC and they were replaced with Wilmington.  The OAC is one of the oldest conferences in the country and is still going strong even with Mount's success on the football field.

I would guess that it would be hard to join another conference without a lot of travel. Moving out of D3 is typically a non starter. This isn't a high school moving between divisions. D3 to D2 is a totally different model and I am sure most schools do not want to change their current situation because of finances and resources. I heard this all the time while I attended Mount, but they did only lose 1 game during those 4 years.

I laughed at my family in Nebraska when they hired Mike Riley. He is the gift that keeps on giving. 

Comment 01 Feb 2019

Isn't this kind of old new since he left Nebraska in October. There were a couple others that left Nebraska and went to Oregon State.

That would be surprising and I doubt that is true. I am sure a lot on here will eat this rumor up.
Comment 16 Oct 2018

Are some on here really questioning the decisions of a football player that was hurt during a game? I don't remember Bosa taking plays off while playing so I won't assume that he is healthy and just skipping out on the rest of the season.

Don't hire guys like Bill Callahan and Bo Pelini and expect to be great. Then don't hire a guy like Mike Riley and expect him to be any more than a .500 coach. Don't underestimate what a bad administration can do. 

Comment 02 Oct 2018

I am shocked the media would twist the words of a coach during a press conference. 

Here is the link text from espn.com's college football's front page:  "Meyer: Banged-up Buckeyes need to step it up"

The actual article's title: "Urban Meyer urges ailing Buckeyes 'to contribute in some way or another'".

The article's title and the link to the article can be taken two different ways. I would assume that most people would just read the link to the article and think that Meyer doesn't care about hurt players.

We have yet to see an official NCAA D1 national championship crowned in football like the rest of the divisions. I think it is funny when the governing body of a sport doesn't have an official champion. 

Comment 20 Jan 2018

Ohio State hires a defensive coordinator that is a Mount Union alum and Jim counters and hires an offensive coach that is a Mount Union alum. I wonder if I should apply for the next opening since I am also a Mount Union alum. 

Comment 09 Jan 2018

All the other divisions figured this out 40 years ago and two of them have it wrapped up before the fall semester ends. It is sad that in 2018 we still have this system. This isn't that difficult. 

Comment 22 Dec 2016

I work in IT at an University (not OSU) and this does not prove he is actually going to go to OSU.

Comment 30 Sep 2016

This isn't something that OSU developed in house. There are many teams (NFL and College) that are using this.

Comment 05 Apr 2016

They played in 1930 at the Shoe and OSU won 59-0.

St. John is a great place to watch a game but the seating is tight for a 6'4" skinny guy. I can't image what it would be for a larger person. The concourse area is also very tight which makes it a problem when you have  long lines for a vendor. 

I'm OK with the Schott and I have been there for a couple games where the atmosphere was great. Most of the time it has to do with the product on the floor more than the configuration of the venue.
