further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
The mods over at Rivals posted an Inside the Fort (super-premium info) article today. And while I won't quote any exact information because of its premium nature, it seemed to be hinting at some big things going on in Ann Arbor:
- It sounds like an NFL coach plans to be in Ann Arbor next year (they wouldn't say whether it's a head coach or a coordinator)
- It sounds like there might be some academic ineligibility for the bowl game
- From my interpretation, it sounds like they believe Rodriguez will be here next year.
As you might expect, there's a lot of reading between the lines to be done. So take this for what it's worth.
Have a good holiday, everyone!

SI's list of best photos of the year list has been released and #19 is a great shot of Rufus beating the @*#! out of Brutus. In addition to being nicely framed, I like how it captures the OSU players kneeling in the background, mourning the death of their sucky mascot.
Oh, thank you Santa, my Christmas came early this year.
I'll start off with that sanctimonious prick tOSU president Gordon Gee:
How do you like them apples, Buckeyes?(+1 to anyone who still has an unread Gordon Wood book in their attic).
Did anyone catch the loop on Sportscenter with Mark May blabbering about the OSU players and how the NCAA wouldn't let other schools/conferences off that easy? I don't have the script exactly but at one point he said that if Mallett or anyone in the SEC had done this they would be suspended immediately.(no bowl game at the very least) And the Big Ten is the "Golden Boy" of the NCAA, etc. HA! You're right Mark, Cam Newton sure paid the penalty.
Did anyone else find this preposterous? I usally don't mind MM but I think he was way off on this one. Personally I think the NCAA was harsh on the OSU guys for suspending them 5 games. IMHO
I did not want to put this guy's name in the title for obvious reasons. Willie Beavers is listed as an OT prospect on the front page of Scout but his Senior film has a considerable amount of highlights at DT. Size somewhere around 6'5" 300 lbs. with only MAC offers plus Illinois - I know the board disdains poor Zook, but he is a proven recruiter and has a knack for finding sleepers. With our lack of success in DT recruiting and the aching need for depth at that position I hope that we are at least giving this instate kid a look.
Check it out: DT highlights start at about 5:15.
I decided to see what they are saying in Columbus and ran across this story where Posey's mother blames the NCAA for not providing more than they do for college athletes. Frankly, I was a bit dumbfounded when I read the article. Instead of accepting responsibility for doing something dumb, she shifts the blame.
She blames the high cost of living in Columbus, among other things.
The Columbus dispatch is running a poll on whether Pryor stays or leaves - 85% have him leaving.
