Hate the Friday night games, that should be left for High school games.
I'm assuming you mean competitive balance? I don't really have an issue with our schedule in terms of competitiveness. I don't think that OSU plays a dramatically more difficult schedule than anybody else in the country. Yea we don't have chicken shit saturday like they do in the SEC but I wouldn't want that anyway. I think the schedule prepares them to play in the playoffs and that's the ultimate goal anyway.
I think MD has improved the play in many sports of the BIG, just not football yet but they are as much or more of a contributor than Indiana or Illinois. I think Locksley has the potential to do well there. Rutgers is a hot mess but that whole athletic blew up in an unprecedented and unpredictable manner. And they did serve their purpose in helping make the BIG school the highest paid schools in the country. Also if you are going to include MD and Rutgers you have to give him credit for bringing in Nebraska as well. I'm assuming you are ok with them being in the BIG?
Not sure on the Rose Bowl comment. They were in the Rose Bowl because they lost to Purdue, I don't think Delaney can do anything to ensure the Buckeyes make the playoffs when they blow it in a game like that.
Other than the Friday night games, the whole Leaders and Legends PR fail, and the Rutgers implosion I'm not sure what most fans hate for him is. He started the BIG network which was such a huge win every conference has since followed suit trying to replicate it's success. That in and of itself has bettered the current and future state of the BIG and will keep it competitive for years to come. He's not perfect but its hard to argue his tenure overall was not successful.
