2013 MSU. Ref stolen ND game doesn’t count
Please be considerate as we work through the stages of grief.
The first is fatigue.
Probably over the Bo stuff
Please keep the prayers coming.
but more importantly the donations. Keep those coming
Watching golf must put that guy in a coma
#Ohio State Buckeyes we landed a transfer from your former 5 star DB Tyreke Johnson
how bad does he suck
I’d like to say something nice about him but can’t think of anything
Seems about right
We were ranked 122 of 127 FBS teams in pass defense in 2020, our opponents averaged 304 yards per game.
He couldn’t crack the lineup in that secondary.
Probably would have helped if your coaches were aware that they could put more than 3 or 4 DBs on the field at once
It’s okay. Mattison retired this off season and we addressed the defensive problems by hiring another offensive assistant to coach special teams.
#Ohio State Buckeyes and #Minnesota Golden Gophers will kickoff on the Thursday night before Labor Day weekend at full capacity.
More interested in Adrian Tyler Martinez’s friend.
The annual Big Ten Media Days and Kickoff Luncheon is only three weeks away. You can feel the electricity flowing through the air.
I just hope there’s lots of transparency
This year, the hot topic is NIL.
The Big Ten released a statement after Alston was decided, stating it would review the decision.
The SEC, ACC, and PAC 12 drafted a letter to the NCAA that was joined by three non-P5 conferences proposing stop gap criteria to make NIL more uniform among all schools.
Apparently, the Big Ten is just going to react to the changes and hope the other conferences propose something good.
We have true leaders in that front office in Chicago.
Need some Legends imo.
I’ve already sent freedom of information requests to the front office demanding to see the emails. I know there is a massive smoking gun there. I can’t believe we haven’t had more transparency. Should we march on Chicago as a collective board?
Ohio passed its own NIL law, so we’re good. The rest of you might not be good, depending upon whether your states do the same. This type of free for all should be avoided though.
The conference should be trying to coordinate a single set of rules that will be applied evenly to all schools.
The conference also should be working proactively with the NCAA to establish uniform rules.
We have our traditional partner the PAC-12 working with the SEC and ACC right now on these issues.
We’re still reading a court decision from last week that doesn’t actually address NIL rights.
lol that’s, let’s say, rich
Michigan has a law that doesn't go into effect for 18 more months. I assume Michigan and Michigan State will just try to work under the guidelines of that law.
We've carried this conference for 20 straight years, we get special pandemic rules.
Technically, Ohio’s NIL bill went back to committee because some 29 year old rep from farm country successfully added an amendment banning transgender competition. That caused it to lose majority support even though it had nearly unanimous support in committee in both the house and senate.
DeWine simply issued an executive order while we deal with the culture war idiots.
We’re going to see half of Mississippi’s team major in marketing and get paid internships at local car dealers under the current laissez faire approach.
Under Alston, paid internships associated with an athlete’s major are allowed.
Ohio State will push the envelope in the Big Ten and hopefully be more subtle that that, but the lack of a game plan at the conference level is somewhat shocking given that everyone saw this coming since the trial decision in 2014.
Hopefully, Chris Olave gets his insurance license and learns to golf between now and fall camp to make some quick cash.
Mertz is ready to rake in the cash
At this point, it's actually better if your state doesn't have at law, which is pretty hilarious.
I’m confident that Kevin Warren will handle this swiftly and appropriately.
He gets $4.1 million a year to make these tough decisions.
Probably should have cut the list to a top 10 in that case.
but did they not only have one loss the rest of the season?
First week lines are live on some online books.
Nebraska at Illinois +9
Temple at Rutgers -13
Ohio State at Minnesota +14
MSU at Northwestern -7
WMU at Michigan -16.5
Penn State at Wisconsin -4
Indiana at Iowa -4.5
WVU at Maryland +4.5
Oregon State at Purdue -7.5
If Nebraska ever implemented this, Husker fans be like
This is from Eleven Warriors today, who linked it, but it’s interesting that the top 5 Big Ten athletes by social media following includes only one football player, and wrestlers or gymnasts hold the top three spots.
College football players aren’t going to benefit from this nearly as much as the Olympic sports. The larger team sport athletes don’t have as much upside as the individual sport athletes. I think the only ones in college that could match those followings of the Olympic sport athletes would be the generational WR, RB, QB and that’s about it. I think men’s CBB will be the obvious winners and then the rest of the Olympic sports, and then CFB.
After looking around the country, even of the Heisman favorites, only Spencer Rattler surpasses these numbers.
I was surprised that three of the biggest winners yesterday were the Cavinder twins and the gymnast from LSU, but it makes sense.
There’s also just an immense lack of star power in college football this year.
Adrian Nunez of UM basketball has like 1.5 mil followers on TikTok and is currently selling his own merch despite the fact he sucks and only averages 4 or so minutes a game
All this time we projected the best performing (male) revenue sports athletes would get NIL multiples more than everyone else, and it turns out social media is the great equalizer to women and non-stars getting paid. Lexi Sun - the Nebraska volleyball player - probably signed for more NIL money than anyone in the B1G yesterday.
She dropped a clothing line too.
Dropping her clothing what?
