Bill Rabinowitz confirmed that he was on track to graduate in May.  The problem from the Martell family perspective is that he would ahve to lose those 5 months of development that he'd have at a new school and be in an uncomfortable situation at OSU with his soon to be former team.

Pridgeon is clearly not starter-quality, and Jordan is undeniably playing out of position -- he doesn't snap the ball well, doesn't make the calls that Eflein/Price used to make, looks confused, and regularly gets out-leveraged by defensive tackles, such that he is often bull rushed back into Haskins and its impacts his throws or cuts of an inside lane for an RB.  Jordan was a good guard who had the potential to be a great one, but he is not a center at 6'7".  It's shocking that Ohio State's coaching staff couldn't develop a  more natural fit for center when they knew Billy Price was going to be gone, especially when they have 4/5 star talent in Josh Myers and Wyatt Davis.  For me, this is the story of the season and what we'll look back upon as the fundamental flaw.

Best:  2002 OSU victory over Michigan at Ohio Stadium, stormed field after final interception of Navarre; eventual national champions.

Worst:  2009 OSU loss to USC; finally thought we were getting over the big game hump, but lost in heartbreaking fashion after Barkley and Joe McKnight led UCS down the field for victory.

If we win out, and if Bama wins out, we are in.  We'd slide into the #4 spot, and a Urban/Saban rematch would be too much to pass up.  I don't see the ACC runner-up making it in, regardless of who it is.  If it's Clemson, the CFP will take the 2 loss Big 10 conference champ over the 2 loss non-conference champ.  If it's Miami, a one-loss Miami team with its best win being over an overrated ND won't be enough to justify putting two ACC teams into the CFP.

That's really awful.  I was one of those few dozens back in 2007 and I remember always enjoying his work.  Gone too soon.

click the link for the alleged cheapshot.  12 Gauge trucks Collins, their best defender, taking him out of the game; and on the very next play, Zeke puts it away, with Collins on the sideline.  Game.  Blouses.

I love that they've managed to successfully coach up average to above average talent, and turned that talent (which we wouldn't have recruited in the first place, in 75% of the cases) into one of the best defenses in the nation, and have complemented that statistically outstanding defense with a competent offense that plays physical at the point of attack and wears down opposing defenses, all with an eye toward the deep ball, and keeping the score manageable, and/or with a big chunk special teams play from Peppers, one of the best players in the country

These aren't "MGO" blog's rankings -- they're rankings generated by one of the site's commenters, someone who has no input on their front page site design or what diaries are promoted to the front page.  It's like if you were to post your own rankings in an 11W forum and then an Mgoblog user claims that your rankings represent the 11W masthead's view on B1G conference teams.

It's not a 21 day "recision" period -- it's a 21 day period to for the affected, 40+ year old employee to consider the agreement, at a minimum.  Based on what he described above, the OP's employer is necessarily violating the ADEA by giving him only 7 days to consider the severance package -- he should have at least 21 days, with many employers giving 45 days, and some 60 days.  You're confusing the 21-day period with the 7-day revocation period, whereby he can revoke the agreement if and when he signs and has second thoughts -- depending, at least, on how the employer has crafted the release.
