I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
The NCAA requires this now.
I'm hungry. Time to eat.
the loophole are those self-directed or special studies sorts of majors, where you basically make a case that a particular unique course of study has some sort of academic merit, counselors/professors/administrators sign off on it, and you basically do whatever you want. Maybe Big Kat and Mo were "Recreational Studies" majors, which necessitated that they take golf, bowling, softball, etc.

Here's the actual rule, which is based more on credit hours:
18.104.22.168 Fulfillment of Credit-Hour Requirements.
Eligibility for competition shall be determined based on satisfactory completion of at least: (Revised: 1/10/92, 10/31/02 effective 8/1/03, 3/10/04, 4/28/05)
(a) Twenty-four-semester or 36-quarter hours of academic credit prior to the start of the student-athlete’s second year of collegiate enrollment (third semester, fourth quarter); (Revised: 10/31/02 effective 8/1/03)
(b) Eighteen-semester or 27-quarter hours of academic credit since the beginning of the previous fall term or since the beginning of the certifying institution’s preceding regular two semesters or three quarters (hours earned during the summer may not be used to fulfill this requirement) (see Bylaw 22.214.171.124.4); and (Revised: 10/31/02 effective 8/1/03)
As Oriental Andrew points out, and if you read subsequent sections of the rules on progress requirements, nothing is stopping any student-athlete from creating their own specialized program as long as the degree program is declared by their third year of eligibility. As there are numerous golf-related courses at Ohio State, the man who once said "It's a humbling thing being humble" at his combine interview could very well have majored in golf (if the Ohio State would have signed off on that, which they might have) and no one would be able to complain about it by the rules.
This is another rule which is intriguing for what it doesn't say more than anything.

Man I wish ohio would have recruited me, I could always use more money, cars, and girls. I also wouldn't mind taking a golf or baseball class. I would be a straight A student.

You forgot the drugs.
He needs MORE of some things... he's obviously got plenty of drugs.

To happen were both honored at halftime by the school and fans.
Jim Tressel is one of the biggest phonies in the history of college football.
Janeane Garofalo (Film Actors Guild): "As actors it is our responsibility to read the newspaper, and then say what we read on television like it's our opinion"
I'll have the opportunity to meet Mr. Clarrett tomorrow. Maybe I'll ask a follow up question for my fellow MGoBloggers...
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
you'd probably be best to ask the question, "sir, how are you?"
I wouldn't want to ask a former D-1 football athlete any question that grinds their gears.
"I cannot think of a better person to guide our university's athletic strategy than the inventor of The Noid."
It's in a work environment. I'll be fine.
Pain is honesty leaving the body.
and Tressel is gone. They don't have to worry. Bastards!
"They're stuck with that quarterback (sophomore Braxton Miller) for the next two or three years, that's fine with me. He throws worse than (Tim) Tebow. - Steve Everitt
no one else was forced out. Only if the ncaa would have question TP's roomate...hmm??
Lucky enough to have my own JT wristband!!
Probably get neg-bombed for this, but reading the article, it seems like the dude went through a lot and appears to have come out the other side a better person for it. I'm actually happy for the guy.
When people with that kind of natural talent have the world given to them, and it all happens so easy, that's when trouble starts. Particularly at a place like ohio where they're in the win-at-all-costs, sell your soul BUSINESS. He stood no chance. Good to see he has his head screwed on correctly today.
Tressell was/is a piece of sh*t. He didn't care about any of these kids. Can't think of anyone I'd want to piss on more.
The thing that still makes my blood boil is that Tressel's entire projection was a hypocritical sham.
Even though all of this was facilitated under his watch, he's honored at halftime during an undefeated season that he personally ruined for the fans and school that are honoring him.
In spite of all of this, the fan base still acts like he's the victim.
is that I was in Columbus for this years game and they CHEERED him. I was trying to remind people that had he not done what he had, they would be playing for a shot at the title game smh
Troy Smith did,for the betterment of tuos,fall on the sword.
I still maintain...the vest is one helluva of guy. Stadium full endorse him several weeks ago advancing my statement.
Someone send this to Rhamzy at 11warriors.
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling.
as Viagra for a eunuch.
Please don't ask me to re-comb through the 11w comment section (even several of their mods are raging douchenozzles) and kill more braincells but I distinctly remember at least one poster there insisting that Tressel *did* report the Tat 5 as he was bound to do but still fell on his sword for the sake of the institution as a whole.
Even if that was true (spoiler: it's not) you still have a decade long case of Tressel at the very least consistently invoking willful ignorance when it came to side benefits and other shenaningans his players were getting. I can't argue against his merits as a football coach, but call a spade a spade - he's a sanctimonious hypocrite who built his empire on a foundation of lies, half-truths and an utter lack of integrity.
Former Buckeye Antonio Pittman on being a poster child for compliance: "This osu tattoo stuff is silly. Cats been getting hookups on tatts since back in '01."
My buddy went to a random osu game this year and said Clarett had a booth outside the stadium which wasn't affiliated to the university. He said for 20 bucks, you get his autograph and a picture taken with him. Sounds pretty desperate if you ask me.
and pathetic, in a really pathetically pathetic sort of way.
I ran into Clarett quite a few times over the summer at the gym, and he was actually really quiet and seemed to be a polite guy. There were several of guys for the Omaha Nighhawks working at at the gym I go to, fairly certain Antonio Pittman was one of them as well. Not sure if he even made the team this time around.
From what I have heard, the UFL was having a hard time even paying any of the players and missed payroll to start the year, and I think the top guys only make around $40-50k for a season.
Quite a fall from what he received at OSU from the sounds of it.
"You're gonna eat lightning, and you're gonna crap thunder!"
anybody can take OSU athletic achievements seriously!
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Dunno what you all are talking about, I'd love to take a golf course instead of an engineering one.
Crazy old Maurice...hmmmmmm....crazy old Maurice.
"Anyone who isn't confused, really doesn't understand the situation." - Edward R. Murrow
Since the NCAA ignored most of their rules regarding enforcement, statute of limitations, and standards of proof with PSU, it's time for them to finally listen to Maurice Clarrett and hammer Ohio State with the sanctions they deserve for 10 years of cheating.
Two more years of bowl ban and five years of 10 schollies per season would work nicely.
By even discussing this it suggest that there is some sort of debate or unknown about what went on at OSU and the culture that exists in Columbus. Don't even give credibility to the notion that its not one huge scam operation by discussing it. This is not shock or OMG got you...it's the status quo over there. They cheat, it's acceptable. Tressel had former coaches knocking him long before he went to OSU, not only after his fall from grace. He is on of the biggest frauds the sporting world has ever seen.
The saddest part of all of the cheating Vest's shenanigans is how they robbed a great man and coach, on Lloyd Carr, of the true legacy he deserved....not to mention all those UM athletes that were robbed of fair competition.
But as per a topic of disussion or debate....only the Ohio sheep fail to see the truth about that shady program. Everywhere else, we know how tainted and filthy that program is.
