love the shade... 

missed opportunity for a krunkfest (crunkfest?) reference, however. Do they still do that?  guessing it would have gone from a bad look to completely shut down by now.

You need to correct this... since we are looking at this subjectively and accurately : 

 Matta also had noticeably more success winning the Big Ten with five regular season and two postseason conference tournament crowns compared to four and two, respectively, for Beilein. 

You also failed to mention that Thad was much higher on the likability index.

Meh... as fun as it is to F the 'rival', there are many benefits to the Gameday Crew coming to Ohio State for an infomercial once in a while. 

As good as the Big Ten Network has been for the conference / university pocketbooks - separating ourselves a bit and creating that competition with the biggest megaphone in the sport certainly hasn't served the conference well from a public opinion standpoint. 

Of Course, winning interconference matchups and bowl games in impressive fashion as a conference would go a long way too (looking at you M*ch*gan, Penn State, and Nebraska).

Sounds like maybe they did offer big cash since Purdue will now be paying him $5MM. Can't argue with the ROI of a successful program though and it sounds like Purdue has figured that out. This is as good as they will do, IMO.  They should keep him as long as they can and it appears they fully understand that.

Not to be debbie downer here but haskins was sacked with a little more than 6 minutes in the 2nd quarter. it was a RPO where he kept the ball.  Why was this not recorded a sack?  At this point, I must just not undrstand something, so help me out here guys. Is there a statistical nuance that I haven't understood through all these years?

From ESPN Play by Play:

1st & 10 at OSU 29

(6:07 - 2nd) Dwayne Haskins run for a loss of 4 yards to the OhSt 25

That said - the box score for their defense still shows 0 sacks. 

Thanks for any insight.

Just lip reading but I think she said Go 'Stangs which I would guess is their rallying cry.  That's probably the default thing to say even when your team just lost the game and someone puts a camera in your face.
