Jones is from Cleveland. Hyde is from Cincinnati; he didn't move to Florida until his sophomore year of high school. Pretty much the entire O-line is from Ohio.
|5 days 38 min ago||Iowa is in the other||
Iowa is in the other division, so how would it help Michigan get into the B1G championship?
|1 week 5 days ago||Are you sure you're not||
Are you sure you're not confusing Amir Williams with another team's center?

I never liked Charles Woodson, personally.

What do you expect from student government?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I think it says Mike Sullivan||
I think it says Mike Sullivan needs a hobby that doesn't involve stalking underage kids. Seriously, this is some creeper shit right here.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Do people actually say things||
Do people actually say things like "That test raped me?" In seven years of higher education, I don't think I ever heard anyone use that phrase.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Recruiting services have||
Recruiting services have really damaged college sports. 20 years ago, no one would have heard of Mike Weber, Chris Clark, or Torrance Gibson until they saw playing time. Now we have people paying for subscriptions so they can better stalk high school kids.

Does Michigan not have a barratry statute?

Not to mention that courts generally can't set aside arbitration decisions unless there was gross misconduct by the arbitrator.

So what, as soon as a coach starts looking at other jobs, they should stop recruiting?

OSU and other B1G schools have been doing 4 year scholarships since at least 2012. http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2012/01/big_ten_offering_recruits...
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Well, this pretty much||
Well, this pretty much confirms what I've been saying for a couple of weeks. OSU will be going with a 3QB backfield next year.

Probably not. See United States v. Drew, 259 F.R.D. 449 (C.D. Cal. 2009)
|5 weeks 4 days ago||IIRC, a person becomes a||
IIRC, a person becomes a booster as soon as they buy tickets to a single game or makes any contribution to the school's athletics department. I think that even membership to an alumni association can qualify if the association promotes athletics.

There were allegations back in 2008 that there were bogus independent study courses for student athletes at Michigan. "
"The average grade for 21 athletes who took 32 graded courses from Hagen, 25 of them independent studies, was 3.62. Those athletes had a grade point average of 2.57 in their other classes, according to transcripts reviewed by the newspaper."

Back when PSU was an independent, Paterno got to hire whoever he wanted as an official. He would hire Don Guman, whose son and grandson were both PSU players. They deserve every bad call they get, just for that. http://www.nytimes.com/2002/10/19/sports/on-college-football-paterno-got...

I'm not sure what makes you think OSU would protect Meyer; we fired Woody for much less, and he was more of an icon than Urban will ever be.
The difference between OSU fans and Penn State fans is that the vast majority of OSU's assholes are Biglots Buckeyes who only root for OSU because there's no NFL team in central Ohio. The alumni are embarrassed by them and they have no say in how the university operates. Penn State's assholes are the alumni.

But those who stayed are champions.

Was the university's senior management aware of the guy for an extended period of time, during which they did nothing?

You stay classy, Mglobules.

Yeah, OSU will only have Stephen Collier, Joe Burrow and Torrance Gibson as backups if Braxton and Cardale both leave.

Just like undisputed national champion football.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Adopt the mantra of Cleveland||
Adopt the mantra of Cleveland fans: There's always next year.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I don't understand why people||
I don't understand why people are so impressed by Hackenberg. He tied the PSU record for most interceptions in a season (15) and most sacks in a season (42). He only threw for 8 touchdowns.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Zach Boren was the fullback||
<strike>Zach Boren was the fullback in 2012, but they haven't had an actual fullback on the roster since then.</strike>
They do have a fullback on the roster (Devin Hill, a Purdue transfer) but I don't think he's seen any playing time except maybe on special teams.

Your starting quarterback wasn't going to be able to play in the Bowl Game. Who ever heard of a team winning anything with a backup QB?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Oh, you'd like to celebrate||
Oh, you'd like to celebrate OSU's win with famous Buckeye alum Jack Nicklaus, eh?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||He's a year away from being||
He's a year away from being able to go pro.

In the NFL, that would have been ruled that an incompletion.
