Grew up in Kansas City to parents who both grew up in Ohio. So we watched Buckeye games every chance we got. I now live in New Hampshire and I have both a bachelor's and a master's degree from UNH.

I just can't get past the idea that TTUN has to replace 10 starters on Defense.  I know they will have talent, but 10 new starters?  They are going to have some bumps along the way next  year, so I don't give them much of a chance to win the B1G.

Typically, people who are accused of this act only have 2 possible defenses.  1) Say it was consensual, or 2) deny any sexual act occurred at all.  The problem with the second option is that if you say "nothing happened", but we find out that something DID happen, then we have to assume it was rape.

Theoretically, if the assault happened and the rape kit was administered, they would be able to find evidence of the attack.  So it is interesting to me that Conley's friends have gone on record to say "no sexual contact happened, she was just made she got kicked out." If they find evidence, then it was surely a rape.  The problem is that rape kits go "unchecked" in America all the time.  There are literally thousands and thousands of rape kits that have never even been processed.  Sounds super crazy but its totally true.  So we might never find out what happened.

Bottom line, if she was not assaulted, I find it hard to believe she would put herself through a rape kit procedure.  They are gruesome.  I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.  However, there is always so much more to these stories than what we see, or what can even be proven.

There is going to be debate of OSU vs the B1G winner.  But its just the talking heads. The reality is that the committee has actually been pretty consistant with their rankings in the past. They rank the best 2 teams #1 and 2, and the two most deserving teams #3 and 4. So its both the "best" AND the "Most deserving." 

OSU is #2, and that wont change. We are in an entirely different catigory than the B1G winner. They will be compared with clemson and washington. We will be compared with Alabama. 

Personallu, I hope clemson loses so we get washington in the first round. That would be great.

I would literally rather lose all 13 games this year, than win with a guy like Dunn on my team. Zero tolerance. Part of that reasoning is my own personal experience with this kind of stuff, and part of that reasoning is an understanding that football is just a game. But violence is life. We cant allow guys to go around creating traumatic memories in people that could last an entire lifetime. 

So glad that Urb took has taken a stand. Seriously.

I live in New Hampshire, about an hour north of Boston. not surprised they are last on the list. Its like riding a horse through a stampede...

worchester MA is just as bad...thats why they are 199th, lol.  

Anytime we see a car with MA plates, we know we are about to get cut off. We call them Mass-holes.

In defense of ESPN, they don't change their rankings on a daily basis. Unlike the rest of the recruiting websites, they dont use "point values" to determine their rankings. They have to get all their "experts" together to determine if changes need to be made. So itll take a bit longer for these changes to effect the ESPN rankings. 

Thats why Eric said "Those numbers are likely to change very soon."
