    One more mistake?

    Maybe he should have appealed?

    It was a good interview, I thought.

    The one thing he mentioned is that, due to the playoffs, they are going to start to do what they can to schedule tougher competition. He said we will be playing a top-10 team, a top-40 team, and a cupcake (or at least that one was inferred) each year.

    Hopefully that does indeed happen. I'd love to see more mid-level BCS schools like California, Colorado and the like on the schedule.

    Hope we reschedule USC so we can pay them back by whupping 'em twice in a row.

    I'm just wondering what the reaction has been in Columbus as the Buckeyes continue to win and teams at the top of the rankings continue to drop. What have the insiders been thinking/saying as a result of no bowl game this year and any second-guessing on whether they should have done a self-imposed ban last season? Or is this something I shouldn't be asking in the OSU AD thread?

    That last years bowl game was irrelevant, even to the seniors and most of the team, and a self-imposed ban was a no-brainer, especially after the second go round of booster issues with the dude from Cleveland (Digeronimo?).

    It was no guarantee we would have avoided a bowl ban this year, but last year didn't make a difference, so it was worth a shot. Especially with the way our schedule looked this year. Even if you thought an undefeated season was a remote possibility, our schedule just laid out perfectly.

    Boneheaded decision.

    I don't get the people that say a self imposed ban wouldn't have worked. Miami self imposed a ban and they are eligible this year. Don't say NCAA conspiracy theories either.

    There's this guy named Mark Emmert. He seems hellbent on punishing beyond anything done by his predecessors. I'm of the opinion that had they self banned last season with a 6-6 record Emmert would have said... "thanks, but we're gonna add another year because you are getting off too easy with your already crappy season + bowl ban..." Given the repeat offender status he could have justified it easily. I guess the other argument is that they could have chanced it and rolled the dice.

    There was no reason....not 1, to go play that bowl game last year. The team didn't even want to play it. It was a season everyone (players/staff) just wanted to move on from.

    Unless you are 100% positive there is no bowl ban on the table, you take a ban last year and force the NCAA to do something unprecedented.

    It was really boneheaded.
