So, as we all know, SI sent all kinds of reporters to Columbus, talked to tons of people, interviewed the on the record and some (Ellis) without revealing identities.
Well, the NCAA looked at all that and said... nah, we wont do that.
The NCAA never spoke with, and never ATTEMPTED TO SPEAK WITH:
The tattoo parlor owner
The car dealer guy, Kniffin
Talbott - golf course/memorabilia dealer
The article brings up parallels on how the NCAA never actually finds anything. for the Fab5 it was the FBI, SMU - a player, USC - the marketing guy who never go paid.
I was hopeful that OSU would get their due... now I just hope they get ANY punishment.
247 released its 2013 watchlist alphabetically by state name and 8 five-star recruits. In the first article, they mention Steve Elmer just missed the cut for five-stars.
What is JT up to? He was at TP's pro day last Saturday offering his phone number to anyone who wanted to talk about TP's abilities. Now this article where he basically says TP's development will be scary good because he has made so much progress since he can concentrate on football and not have to deal with going to class, schoolwork and, my personal favorite, "the social aspects of being that age".
Does anyone believe TP was losing a lot of practice time concentrating on his schoolwork? Are the social aspects of that age finding loaner cars to drive and trading stuff for tats? I know there was a whole thread on TP yesterday, but I just can't figure out why Tressel has such a soft spot for this guy. He either really thinks he's a father figure or he is up to something that's going to come out of left field.
I thought this was OT because neither are still at Ohio.
Brian Kelly announced that Dayne Crist will be starting at QB over Tommy Rees. Not wholly unexpected, but interesting nonetheless...
EDIT: Stats for those who are curious:
Crist : 174 of 294 (59%), 2033 yards (6.91 YPA) 15 TD / 7 INT.
Rees 100 of 164 (61%), 1106 yards (6.74 YPA) 12 TD / 8 INT.
Lite up at night looks pretty sexy
So I finally got my tickets to the Notre Dame game after spending weeks researching and watching the prices. I finally bit the bullet and threw down some serious cash to get them and I decided that if I was going to drop that kind of money, I was going to get good seats. That started me thinking:
What do you all think are the best seats in Michigan Stadium and why?
Personally, I prefer seats in Sections 24-25, somewhere around Rows 20-30. They are close enough to the student section to get a piece of my college experience but also a little closer to midfield. Rows 20-30 are close enough to the field to feel a part of the action but far enough up to see the whole field clearly.
What say you?
