That's probably closer to the truth, but Pete still wouldn't know this for sure. Good old Pete with some passive-aggressive embellishment.

No offense, but this smells like BS. The coach took Jones off the field ran him inside, got the Principle and the AD and locked the doors. How could he possibly know this unless he ran, caught up and followed him. Then, what's the purpose of locking the doors? He would have already been inside the school.

Frankly, I wouldn't have wanted my kid talking to Pete Carroll either.

Jack is the greatest golfer ever, and Tiger is done.

The story at the time of his visit was that someone connected to Diamond going by the name of G-Bone came to OSU a day or two before his visit to see if Diamond was going to be paid to attend tOSU. Whether this happened or not, OSU and other schools seemed to stop recruiting this highly rated recruit shortly after he visited the school.

Here is how I think a 16 game playoff would look like:

Round 1: The 8 teams playing in their conference championship game. Plus 7 at-large teams and the B12 conference winner. 6 at-large teams play each other and 1 at-large team play the B12 winner.

Round 2: 2 weeks later, 4 Conference Game Champs play the other 4 at the same venue as the Conference Championship games. Lower ranked vs. higher ranked.

Round 3 New Years Day

Championship Round  

This protects the conference games, conference championship games and the bigger bowl games. I think this plan is doable.

I don't know if there is any food more Ohio, and really Ohio State than Johnny Marzetti.

Also, even though Buffalo Wings were invented nearby to Ohio, we have certainly embraced them with BW3 and Roosters.

Brats, sauerkraut, grilled chicken fundraisers, bahama mama's is also what comes to mind when I think of home.

OSU has a big break not having to play this weekend. Here is how I think it should be done

5 conferences, so 5 conference championship games. However they want to do it.

Next select the next 6 at large teams. Conference championship games, and at-large games play 2 weeks after season ends.

Now, you have 8 teams. Put them in the traditional New Year's Bowl games. Field of 4 play 2 weeks later. Championship game 2 weeks after that.

Their brand died in the B12, after Osborne retired. They are making now, more money than ever. They're not moving anywhere.

No shame in #4. I should add, my list is more of a top head coaching job list than my own personal preference.

Texas has even deeper pockets than OSU. They are in a state with tremendously more recruits than Ohio. They share those recruits with A&M, but Texas is the premier school in that state. They have their own network and play in a conference a lot easier then the B1G East.

Alabama is on a run that will never be duplicated. I believe it could only have happened at 'bama. Whatever a coach needs, the admin and boosters will make sure he gets it. They also sit less than a 9 hour drive from the vast majority of top recruits in the nation. No school recruits itself, but 'bama comes the closest.  

Florida State has become the top program in the most talent-laden state in the country. They play in an easier conference than the B1G East. Their success in the 90's shows you can win and win big.

Yeah, Georgia probably is a sleeping giant. The problem is, they haven't been successful in so long that it is hard to argue for them
