ohio state blogs will post literally anything
Following last second loss to MSU on Saturday, the mass media sure is playing up the future Buckeye departures to the NFL, questions about Meyer's leadership, loose lips sinking ships, and questions about team cohesion after the loss:
I did not expect this for an 10-1 team heading into big rivalry game, but there you have it.
I'm sure Ohio State will bring their best and try to end their season on a spectacular note in Ann Arbor.
I'm just surprised that Urban Meyer wouldn't re-assert control and put the kabosh on all the prima donnas players and their divisive comments.
As for future NFL depatures, I don't know that these talented players would have stayed anyway had they beaten MSU on Saturday. I think most were preparing to go anyway, because they can.
Should be a great game on Saturday for the seniors on both teams regardless.
More uniformz sacrilege coming your way because apparently everything that ever existed must be destroyed by 21st century creative marketing grads. The mary jane leaves become all the more relevant and appropriate. "So many bong hits man, I blacked out..."
Some more commercialization in the college sport:
It's all about the money........
#1 on the list is Harbaugh v Meyer in The Game.
"Lots will happen between the opener and the College Football Playoff, of course, but here are 100 things we hope to see this year. Here's a hint: Mr. Harbaugh is featured prominently throughout."

Jamel Dean is the OSU recruit who enrolled early this past winter only to find out OSU would not clear him medically to play football. Coincidentally, OSU was oversigned at the time. Not that they were related at all. Well, Dean just got offered to play at Auburn. Strange to see an SEC school benefiting from a Big Ten school cutting a recruit due to oversigning.
"(Meyer) said he didn't know about (Drayton) leaving, that it was a last minute thing. The most important thing about my 'misleading' part was that I didn't really understand the process of recruiting behind Ohio State. I truly do now.
I understand the ambition Urban Meyer has, I understand the integrity of Urban Meyer and I understand that he's about the welfare of the child and the wholeness of what the athletes need at the university. He instilled in me that no child will be left behind in his program.
We did meet. We did talk. And he is the person I thought he was and the person I believe him to be. I believe our relationship is stronger now."

I figured the board may be interested given how Coach Wilcher had previously blasted Urban Meyer about the Mike Weber/Stan Drayton situation:
"I think Urban Meyer will have to step his game up; we're going to have to talk," Wilcher told Detroit Sports 105.1 in a long interview. "He has come to my school and got the No. 1 athlete two years in a row. You cannot come over here, come up to the north, and walk out of here with your pockets full and not give us respect."
