A lot of it has to do with the changing demographics of the country. Southern states are growing and the traditional rust belt states aren't. In 1980 Michigan and Florida both had approx. 9 million residents. Today, Florida has twice the population of Michigan.
A lot of the comments sound like what was said about Cardale Jones after the 2014 season
Pretty sure a degree from Duke will open more doors than a degree from most colleges and that includes OSU and a degree from OSU isn't bad
OSU fans hated Urban when he was at Florida. He was commonly referred to as Urban Liar and Urban Crier by OSU fans when he was at Florida. I'll never forget the hate towards Urban when he was able to get Shariff Floyd to commit to Florida when he was considered a strong lean to OSU
Mike Brown has done amazingly well financially by doing dumb things
I've never understood the economics and/or the structure of pro athletes contracts, but how do you sign five 1st round picks in two years and still stay within the salary cap?
What do "hillbillies" have to do with the article? I was simply responding to the person that referenced Tennesseans as "hillbillies".
Personally, I like country people. They're not always well educated but they're good people. What irritates me the most is that it seems to be socially OK to denigrate people of Appalachia descent but not people of Africa descent. Would you rather have your car break down in downtown Detroit or downtown Portsmouth?
Don't need to go to TN to find hillbillies. Ever been to S.E. Ohio?
The owners voted 31-1 . Guess who the 1 no vote was? Mike Brown
This absolutely sucks for Hilliard. 5* kid from Cinti St X. Quality kid. Where's Knarcisi ?
Nowhere in my initial post on this thread did I direct it towards any body. No one. I simply made a generic comment towards anybody bitching about the McKenna call or non-call
No, it's just homers like you that ALLWAYS want to bitch and complain because you happen to disagree with ANYTHING that doesn't go OSU's way. I like to see things as an independent thinking person and not just follow the crowd. If you don't like my comments then you have a choice to not read them instead of constantly stalking me. I'm an OSU fan as much as anyone, I'm just not a homer about it
Some of you bitching and complaining about the McKenna non call sound a lot like the Michigan fans when JTB did or did not make a 1st down in the 2016 OSU / UM football game
Because none of the players that come to OSU have NFL aspirations?
Mick Cronin is the Marvin Lewis of college basketball
What I was trying to say is that there's more to being an NFL quality QB than having a strong arm.
Avery kept referring to both players arm strength and throwing ability. Jamarcus Russell and Cardale Jones also had great arms.
Burrows? We've never had a QB with the name of Burrows
This isn't any different than all the kids that got into elite schools because their parents "paid" what it takes to get into these elite schools
Yet people bitch and complain because a CEO makes $4 million and actually employs hundreds of people
Funny, I constantly see posts by fans that want players who want to be Buckeyes yet they're ecstatic about a kid that didn't originally want to be a Buckeye. Gotta love the hypocrisy
I seriously doubt that players from UC,Toledo, Akron, etc will be transferring to OSU, Bama, or Clemson
It was so unsafe that he stayed for 3 months after the incident. What rational person would stay in an "unsafe" environment?
