And, ultimately, I guess another reason why we don't want to speculate too openly about who is going to leave or stay via the Transfer Portal because it's simply too nakedly mercenary for our blood. At heart, a lot of us still want to believe that college sports in 2020 looks exactly how Francis Schmidt or Fielding Yost would've intended it to

Good article and great topic. I don’t know if your readers are that naive about college sports. Personally, I don’t speculate on who could (or should) transfer in relation to the Buckeyes roster simply for respect of the roster. These kids signed up to be Buckeyes, which our hired staff accepted, then why would I wish for them to leave? And when a player does, I simply wish him luck. There’s plenty of players who don’t see the field for 2-4 years only to become greats through hard work in practice. But I also understand when a good player doesn’t want to sit behind other good players.

Very true Hove, but Arnette also got tons of reps, just turning it around in his 5th year. All of these guys are pretty green. Talent is there but they all need to take major steps forward this off season.

Yes only 1st round players have 5th year team options in their Rookie contracts.

I like seeing teams from the Midwest do well in the bowl season. Especially those with lots of players born and raised in Ohio, which is pretty much all of them. I like seeing our conference prestige raise up. Makes it harder for 'Committees" to leave us out of the Playoffs. That said, I'm not into telling anyone who they should or should not root for in sports. If you want to root against B1G go for it. Hope _ichigan loses every game? I can get behind that. I will say, showing me how petty and jealous _ichigan fans are is not the best argument to dissuade me from rooting for the conference. I certainly don't want to emulate those people.
