I brought this up months ago.  Scholarship limit is 85, and most teams have that many players on scholarship.  No football this fall, and promise of retained eligibility even if they play in the spring.  That means nobody will be forced out come 2021.  But, each school has a full incoming freshman class adding to the headcount.  NCAA needs to figure out how to handle this fairly.  If they don't, OSU will need to figure out how to open up twenty-some spots this "off"season.

If the NCAA comes out and says, "ok, 110 scholarship limit for 2021", then scale them back to 85 over several years, then programs will know what the heck is going on.

I don't get why OSU fans hate Herbie.  Listen to his broadcasts for an entire year, and unless it's actually mentioned, you'd never guess which university he attended.  That's unbiased broadcasting.  I doubt you could hear one broadcast day from Howard (if you can tolerate it) before figuring, "I bet he went to Michigan".

The 1991 team was one of two "worst-in-a-generation" teams for OSU, "bested" only by the '88 squad.  Running them into the ground was no great feat.  Being a **** toward the end of the game is just being childish.

Fast-forward a couple decades, and OSU deals UM two of their biggest defeats in the history of the rivalry - '15, '18, '19.  Three shellackings in five years.  And...crickets.

Regardless of what he is as a person or former player, I do not see him contributing any value to the Gameday stage.  His predictions for OSU and UM are total home'r.  Just do not get the appeal  Bigger mystery, still - his bosom buddy, Herbstreit.  I admire the guy, but I wish he would make up his mind.  "Win with class", "Win with grace", "Win with humility".  Strike three, DH, but that's ok, it doesn't really matter.

As for Tim B, no beef here.  He did his job.  OSU's D had absolutely no answer for that offense that day.  Greise, ok, his ego was off the charts in his playing days, and I'd say even in his early days in the booth.  He seems to have mellowed out.  DH?  Ego is as big as even, and he would not hesitate to talk about it.

Gotta love UM's t-shirts from a couple years ago:  "Respect is Earned".  To the contrary, I present exhibit A,...DH..

Growing up in Ohio, all you hear is Ohio State.

And...

Growing up in Michigan, all you hear is Michigan State.
Growing up in PA, all you hear is Penn State.

Growing up in Wisconsin, all you hear is Wisconsin.
Growing up in Georgia, all you hear is Georgia.

What's his point?

I would almost take that as a prerequisite for sports agents.  Always reminds me of Jamir Miller and Steinberg.  Cleveland will regret not resigning him after he tore his achilles.  Cleveland backed out, and Miller retired.  If Cleveland would have balked, he probably would have gotten several $M in guaranteed money to take with him on his retirement.  And don't even get me started with the Poston brothers and Kellen "Chosen One" Winslow.

The best part about this was post-game, and during "Gold Pants ceremony" the next year.  Meyer kept repeating one message:  "respect".  Over, and over, and over.  That's my biggest gripe with JH.  The actions of his players - guarantees, revenge tours - show that he does not embrace the concept.  If he did, his players would know better.  Kinda surprised their AD hasn't had a chat with him about that.

Wow - I completely forgot about band!  That was completely ridiculous.  That is, I read that whole report.  While the allegations were true, they had been true for DECADES!  The guy who was on the job for ...two...whole...years... bore the full brunt of the punishment.

Not that I'm trying to slam the greek system - I know they're, like, sacred on many a campus, but definitely read that report.  Then, read it again, but substitute every instance of "marching band" with "fraternity".  You'll simply nod and say, "yeah, I can see that happening".

Three years ago, UM played @Purdue in sweltering heat.  It was later reported that the visiting locker room is a dump, lacking even A/C and medical facilities.  UM basically hung out in their buses, pregame and halftime.  Purdue seems to go out of their way to make the visiting team as miserable as possible.
