I remember when Havlicek was offered a huge salary to go play in the old ABA. He declined the money saying that he didn't want the people of Boston to think less of him or the general public to think he played the game for just money.
Once in a generation kind of person.
Rest in peace Hondo!

As someone who studied psychology before changing majors I can with certainty tell you that people like living in their fairy tale world and don’t like anything that challenges belief (a form of cognitive dissonance). I can only imagine that the down voters are upset that I pointed out that, e.g., the last two Buckeye coaches were both outstanding faith and family men but had no problem with the work responsibilities that put them atop their field.  

Simple logic dictates that something is probably wrong at home and Schiano needed to take some dramatic action to prove sincerity or to help alleviate a problem. Some of these downvoters are not smart enough to figure out that “you have to wonder” is not the same as “here is the reason”.

Further, even if true it is not a slam against Schiano, since many a good man has fallen and latter gotten his act together.

My lord what kind of kool-aid drinkers didn't understand what was going to happen here. One team at the top of the B!G playing a mediocre team that lost it;s best player, at home on senior day knowing they could play loose because it was not going to be a contest. 

Buckeyes played pretty much the way you could expect under the circumstances.

Sorry but this will be a 20 point Purdue blowout unless the bucks shooting percentage is sky high. The Boilers will control everything around the basket.

Excuse this personal sore spot for me. Don't coaches explain to players that the 3 point shot needs to come when you are somewhat relaxed and can follow through and not just tossed up because you think you have a crack at one?

Not an easy remaining schedule.

They need and should get this one and Northwestern at the Schott. Hoping they find a way to pick up another one or two.

There are some differences. I don't believe the "powers that be" had the decency to extend to Larry the courtesy of an interview for the HC position, and the new PSU white knight, little Jimmie Franklin, wasn't very interested in retaining LJ or he would have offered some kind of "assistant to the HC" position.
