that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

Motive is not one of the elements that the prosecution must prove. It helps create a narrative for the jury, but outside of that, it's not really important.

McCullough has been rumored to be a gray shirt since he first committed. See e.g. http://thebuckeyebattlecry.com/recruiting/fbrecruiting/liam-mccullough-i... ("That’s three verbals in three days...although this one is being identified by some as a 'gray shirt.'")

I believe it was a mix of Florida's policy and Meyer's philosophy. If I remember, he was quite critical of the practice, especially when kids were flat out cut from the team.

Or it says that sports radio is a medium that thrives on manufactured controversy. Historically, Meyer hasn't oversigned. If you look at his tenure in Florida, he averaged 23.33 players per year. That was 2nd to last in the SEC, and would have been 5th in the B1G during that period. http://www.waitingfornextyear.com/2011/11/urban-meyer-ushers-in-a-comple...
It makes no sense for Meyer to cut a 4* prospect before signing day, and before the kid had even been on the field to see what he can do. The simpler explanation is that the kid blew out his knee and is unable to perform. As for the long snapper, grayshirting, while not ideal, isn't that rare. For instance, Jeremy Clark at Michigan.

The medical team made the decision on January 12, which is way before OSU knew how many kids it would actually sign. Moreover, Dean was tweeting about a meniscus transplant in January. It sucks, but the kid's career is over.

I don't think anyone truly expects a national championship threepeat. I don't think we'll ever see that with the playoff system. That said, I think OSU will continue to dominate the B1G for the foreseeable future. MSU has peaked, Nebraska just fired a coach who went 9-3 for one who went 5-7, Wisconsin is Wisconsin, and Michigan is in the beginning stages of its third rebuilding since 2008.

Dean was tweeting about a meniscus transplant in January. Unfortunately, OSU can't discuss specific medical issues due to FERPA and HIPPAA , meaning that we're relying on an upset teenager and his high school coach to give us medical information. I can understand Dean's unhappiness at being told his career is over. Dean probably expected to play in the NFL, and to be told that's not going to happen has to be tough.

And are you basing your medical opinion on the extensive examination you've conducted, or simply that it's Urban Meyer?

I think at least two quarterbacks see significant time this fall for OSU. Maybe all three, depending on Braxton's shoulder.

OSU's defense in 2012 was horrendous. Average to bad defenses don't put the starting fullback in at middle linebacker because he's the best tackler on the team.

I'm going to disagree with you about Meyers; he had to completely rebuild the O-line and the defense.

Accelerated law school programs are a horrible idea if you actually want to practice law. My understanding is that you take classes year round, meaning you can't really clerk or intern anywhere, so you graduate with no practical skills and no contacts.
As far as career stats, for recent classes, roughly 44% of law school grads actually get a permanent job that requires bar admission within nine months of graduating. That includes people doing document review, which is like the Wal-Mart of law jobs. If you have a degree in hard sciences or something and want to do patent law, go for it. Otherwise, I'd urge you to seriously consider it and read some of the law school scam blogs.

I was in the class of '11. At our bar admissions ceremony, the chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court spent half her speech listing all the things we could do with a law degree even if we never worked as an attorney. It was one of the most depressing moments of my legal career.

Get a set of Ping Eye 2s. They're usually under $200. They may not be the newest and shiniest, but they're still great clubs and won't carry the stigma of department store/top flight if you worry about that sort of thing.

TBDBITL's director being fired was a result of political infighting over who controlled the budget. The women's hockey coach is just a jackass.
