Thinking more about this, I just cannot take the time. A fast college game is 4 hrs. It’s too much.

I agree that it's too long. The clock rules and long halftime are problems.

Great, more ways for people to shit on the university. When I am at events, I get oh you graduated from THE Ohio State University and I just laugh. People hate it. 

I usually don't use it as it just sounds pretentious.

It's the way people say it. It's stupid to emphasize THE so much. Like, if you say Ohio State I am pretty sure everyone in the world knows what you are talking about. You don't need to add THE in such a way that makes it sound like there are multiple options of where you may have gone.

Yup. I never use The. Only Ohio State or OSU. 

In a conference with folks from around the country, everyone agreed The is dumb.

Great to see my alma mater using its resources in pursuit of knowledge and education.  Great job.  Perhaps this effort was handled by the part of the administration that has tripled in size over the past 30 years.  


Great victory over other schools such as The University of Michigan, The United States Naval Academy or The Ohio University - all legal names. 


Fucking joke.

Always liked the way WOSU-TV ch 34 says it iduring their promos:  "the OHIO State University".  Focusing on "Ohio State", and not the pronoun.

I hope Arch Manning succeeds.  I like his family a lot.  But I get a wary feeling about him getting this level of accolade before he's begun college.  This reminds me of a Ron Powlous type situation.  Basically if this guys doesn't win a Heisman and a NC for Texas, he's like a bust.  


 I hate that he chose Texas, but that's just because I don't like Texas.  I wish him well though.

He seems like a hellova player for sure.  You also know the guy’s getting the best guidanceca kid in his situation can get.  But there are only a handful of athletes that live up to this otherworldly billing when they are that young.  I hope he’s one of them because he seems like a good kid.  His family is first class too.

This isn't surprising considering the current state of things.  I wonder if it would stop at these two.  My only request is if somehow the Big 10 could find its way to jettisoning Rutgers and Maryland in the confusion.

Rutgers at UCLA on Big Noon Kickoff at 9am local. 

Cant wait for the basketball tournament to be played in Omaha -- the central location for the B1G.

Won't this and the other moves to different leagues have a negative effect on the "minor" sports due to travel costs?

I can't imagine how.  These schools split up so much money from TV, I would think that'd more than cover it.

It's almost to the point where they need conferences for football only and conferences for everything else. The travel for football isn't as hard because it's only 4 or 5 times a year, and it is rarely in the middle of the week.

I think this makes sense.  Football is operating outside the NCAA anyway.  No reason for the pistol team to be crisscrossing the country.

I guess this is another step down the path that leads to CFB being the NFL’s minor league willing to shed what made it different.
