Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

Success.

it got crap because the cost/benefit is extremely goofy. compared to bama or oklahoma, you're talking about a difference of like 3-5 yards, when the penalty for screwing up is like an additional 20. in the long run it really doesn't make a huge difference either way, but the level of unnecessary stress it put on urban meyer was hilarious.

I think you need to point out that Arizona State Students also get free tickets to ALL sporting events, on campus with that $75 fee they charge.

i did. also:

  • every ASU student has to pay that fee, whether they attend games or not
  • ohio state football is a much, much better product on average than ASU football
  • because of that, osu would never allow a flat student fee to get into games for "free"
  • and even if they did, it would have to be a hell of a lot more than 75 bucks to sustain 200 mil in revenue

my major point here is that sports in colleges should justify themselves. "prestige" or nostalgia or whatever shouldn't be an excuse to take tens of millions of dollars from the school and students.
