...Saturdays from now. Go Blue!!!
Mr. comissioner once again showed just how good he is at his job once again.
Take a look at his reaction to the NCAA's decision-
"But the football oversight committee recommended to the council and the council is supporting action now," he said. "It is what it is. We made our case for holistic vs. ad hoc. You have to accept it. That's part of the (system) we signed on for. No reaction beyond that. You always would like to win rather than to lose a vote — I don't care whether it's in a court or legislature or an assembly of people. You go with the system that's in place, and so I support that, respect that and move on. (Coaches will) pick up recruitment; satellite camps are off the table, but presumably everything else is on it. "
In other words, it doesn't/hasn't/won't keep him awake at night that the NCAA is favoring the wishes of one region of the country.
This guy does not care about any of the actual issues going on in this league. This guy does not care about nor does he support any member school outside of his beloved OSU that he gave a loving, helping hand to back in 2010.
It doesn't matter to him that the people that make college sports happen--the athletes--are the ones truly getting screwed here.
Now, if the NCAA made some kind of ruling on not being able to expand the #footprint so you can push your network on people in other regions, I'm sure he'd have a whole task force.
This whole thing is rotten.
There is no college sports without the athletes, and there is no B1G without the member schools.
So who really has the power again? At some point, maybe the schools should actually put their foot down. What's the point of being in an athletic conference if the guy who represents your interests is as out of touch and incompetent as can be?
Long week, mates, but Friday is here.

I think the NCAA just privatized the camps. There is a great demand, so they will go on in some form. If they are not school or NCAA sponsored, what can they do? Have it called a "conference" - sign some books/photos for Alumni, have high school QB clinics, etc. (have alumni clinics too) - you allow high school athletes in for free.
