Stop confusing people.  Some posters wouldn’t know RPO from Dave if it bit them in the ass.  

Good analysis.  

I would caution people not to draw any conclusions though.  Not a large enough sample size to draw many conclusions.

Stupid?  Really?  You can disagree with it, but that doesn't make it stupid.  By calling it that, it says more about you than it does about the author of the tweet: A highly regarded blogger on CFB and tOSU.  

For the record, its not stupid.  If you have any reading comprehension, you would acknowledge that Kyle's point is that the NCAA is a private institution and that therefore lawyers have no direct power to effect change within said institution.  But thanks for playing.

What makes him up and coming?  The fact Urban hired him away from Wazzu?  I wasn't impressed then; nor now.  At least Schiano had a track record of excellence.  Grinch didn't prove anything to me.  In fairness, I've always maintained that the shitshow in July/August mitigates some of the blame.  That just screwed everything up for the year.

Not really, he just doubled down and (arguably rightly) called out the NCAA and tOSU for Hypocracy.  It was Devere Posey and his non-work work at Independence Excavating that was the add-on that caused the NCAA to ambush Gene and Urban.

Don't get me started on that part of the story.  There is nothing worse for a program than a rich guy wannabe.

After 2002, Dustin Fox said they got nuttin on their visit.  He would've killed for a burger that day..

Rule of thumb in most small businesses:  You need approx 3-4x revenue to payroll costs.  So, judging by the costs a college scholarship mitigates, athletes ARE getting compensated at roughly the same level they will be in the real world.  Of course, like anything else out there, there are always outliers and exceptions to the general rule.  But less of an argument for paying athletes.  Per Diem Stipends should be enough.

Yeah, I read another story on there called Penitentiary Rock.  Its about how a college station has a show for prisoners once a week.  In 1977, as PRogram Director at WVBU-FM (Bucknell U) I started the Prison Request Show on Sunday Nights.  It was a direct ripoff of a show on the Buzzard WMMS in CLeveland.  As far as I know, the show was still on the air 2 years ago.

Byars and its not even close.  Doug Flutie won the Heisman because of one play.  ANd he underthrew that ball, but Gerard Phelan made a great play.  Byars SHOULD'VE won it because of one play but didn't.  He single handedly put Ohio State on his back and brought them back from a 24-0 deficit in this game.

Sources told me that Urban was going to take a year off and then coach in whoreville.

Comment 11 Jan 2019

I've posted in the past that my ultimate fantasy was that we beat the weasels so often and so soul crushingly effectively that they try to deemphasize football, apply for membership in the Ivy League (because of their own delusions of grandeur), get turned down by the Ivies, drop to Division III and then get owned by Mount Union until they drop football.  

This post is beyond gold.  Its platnum.  No, its beyond platnum.  Its indiscribable.  Actually it is discribable, but I don't want to go to 11W jail again.

Comment 10 Jan 2019

They get the playing time WHEN they deserve it.  White was ready to play week 9, but hadn't beaten out the incumbent at that point.  The targeting call gave him the opportunity.  Every day is a competition.  Why is that so hard to comprehend for some people?  

I mean, in theory, every stud player in Columbus should be ready to play.  BUT, until they WIN the position, they sit and wait.  THAT's how it works.  its not hard people.

Comment 10 Jan 2019

Do you have reading comprehension problems?  THERE WAS A REASON Jahsen Wint started at the beginning of the year.  White wasn't ready.  Urban even commented during a Q & A that there were things he needed to doduring the week before he would see the field.  That's how it works.

  1. Knute Rockne  .881
  2. Frank Leahy    .864
  3. Urban Meyer    .854
  4. Barry Switzer    .837
  5. Tom Osborne   .836

You don't become the third winningest coach in the HISTORY of the game (by a wide margin) being an asshole and idiot.  You do it by building a culture and a program that demands excellence.

Who did you want to replace Isaiah Prince (my favorite whipping boy) with?  Whomever it is, he couldn't beat Isaiah out.  But, because you think Urban is an idiot he should just be benched and a guy who isn't as good should play.  All those players you mentioned didn't perform as good as players in the past at their positions.  It happens.  Tuf Borland isn't as good as A.J Hawk; who wasn't as good as Chris Spielmann.  I suppose, by your theory that 2 star LBer from Centerville should've been benched because he wasn't as good as Spielmann.

OK.  Got it.  

Comment 09 Jan 2019

For the umpteenth time; playing time is EARNED.  IN PRACTICE.  Its not doled out in some heirarchy of nepotism and favoritism.  If you think thats how it works you know nothing about a major college football team works.  Game experience isn't used to "try out" new personnel (except in the 4th quarter against Rutgers).  If a player hasn't demonstrated competency in reading and assignments during practice, HE AIN'T PLAYIN'.  If Mitchell didn't get playing time this past year, its not because Urban didn't feel he was hazed enough yet.  Its because Mitchell has yet to EARN playing time.

BAH!  A true Buckeye Fan would never yell "GO Ohio State!"  Its Either "Go Bucks!" or "Go THEEE Ohio State University!"
