The Bluejays lost Khyri Thomas and Marcus Foster, a pair of talented guards. Thomas, a second round pick by the Detroit Pistons, was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year while averaging 15.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Foster averaged 19.8 points per game last season and earned first-team All-Big Ten honors the past two seasons.”

1) twice you referenced the players as Big Ten players- I think you meant Big East

2)Thomas was actually drafted by Philadelphia but is currently playing for Detroit

I don't think you can say anything is obvious

If it's true that the compliance offer (who also dubbed as the Title X officer which doesn't necessarily mean any thing since it seems Title X didn't apply to this situation) was the first to find out about October 2015 via the OSU Police via the Powell Police Dept then doesn't it stand to reason that the departments above her ( the compliance/Title X officer) and there were "others" (quote from the committee report) then all the higher ups knew about it because they were the ones that told Gene who told Urban. Should they ( Gene and Urban) filled out the redundant paper work to the very people who informed them? I mean , I guess but isn't it reasonable that they felt they didn't need to because the appropriate people already knew? And if you can't say that's *plausible* then I don't think you're being entirely honest

I also don't see where he was turning his head away when Courtney didn't let any one know about instances of physical abuse until 2015 and by all accounts the only one that reached the edges of Urban's radar is the Oct 2015 incident and via this first paragraph he heard it through a channel that originated from the offices he'd have to report to. 

When you say he wasn't equipped to handle these allegations, I agree no coach is in a position to handle allegations which is why they're required to go to the appropriate offices, but in this case he heard it from the appropriate offices themselves (through Gene). If you can prove to me that Urban knew days before Gene informed him then I can entertain your argument but I think it's obvious it doesn't fit that nicely in this situation

I might have gone with Stanley Jackson... granted there aren't a lot of great #8s and midway through the '96 season Cooper should've just given the ball to Germaine for the rest of the season and leading into the 1997 season; however, Jackson was technically the starting quarterback for the 1996 team that won the Rose Bowl** 

** that Joe Germaine won on the final drive

Saying that Snook is serving as a mouth piece doesn’t enirely fly with me because he’s only responding to McMurphy’s initial report. If you were the people in Snook’s report and you felt that McMurphy was entirely one sided, didn’t reach out to you for comment, printed information that was damaging to a person who is no longer alive to respond , and (possibly) embellished his contact with you wouldn’t you want someone to get your side out ?

I’m not saying Snook is entirely altruistic in his motives for reporting what he’s reported (I don’t know) but when has reporting been entirely pure as the undriven snow all the time?

McMurphy started this whole mess when he decided to go about his business they way he did; I see Snook just providing the other side since McMurphy was going to be sloppy 

Finally, I think we can agree that Kyle Lamb and the unnamed Reddit attorney have done a great job of providing legal facts and insight outside of the Smith / Carano / Bruce saga

You cannot compare Snook with McMurphy... one of them has had to regularly edit and re-edit his stories and apparently felt he never had to interview  other than Courtney and we all know which of the two that is. If McMurphy had actually done real journalism instead of being in a rush to be first with a story (any story) Snook probably doesn’t need to get the other side of the story so people can get a broader picture

Ummm 1997 wasn’t the Rose Bowl championship year (that was the 1996 season/ game played on 1/1/1997). Even if that’s what you meant, by the bio he’d had been a freshman on a stacked oline that year, and I don’t recall him being an AA as a freshman in 1996

Stop with the Herbie hating... of course Saban could call in because his team wasn't playing today so he's not traveling home from Atlanta; meanwhile Urban has just finished a game and has other duties. I know we all like to hate on ESPN but not everything is some deep,dark conspiracy against Ohio St. In all fairness, our team has had wild swings in play; Alabama may not be the Alabama of 2009,2012, or 2015 but they've been consistent even if that consistency isn't up to those years.

Was there ever a chance this game would be on at 7 or 8 pm? 

Also, hope the game is on Fox. I’ve been enjoying the games on Fox more than ESPN/ABC- they don’t over do it with graphics on the field
