    Just to verify, if anyone knows, is it one more year or two more years left on Gene Smith's contract? His contract extension terms were very vague, including the money and length.

    I'm assuming he doesn't have enough "skeletons" to garner another extension (hoping).

    Gee says "the NCAA was going to impose their ban" no matter what. "Even if we self-imposed a 5-year ban, they would have added to it."

    Dave Biddle ‏@davebiddle
    Gordon Gee calls it a "myth" that if OSU's self-imposed a postseason ban last year that the Buckeyes would be playing this year.

    Not saying he's right, but it's still interesting comments..I'm putting it in Gene's thread since everyone blames him for this season

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    I believe that the NCAA was going to take 2012 from Ohio State. Self-imposing a ban in 2011 would not have given Ohio State 2012.

    The 5-year bowl ban comment is a bit of an exaggeration, but I believe Gee in that the NCAA was going to get their punishment in regardless of what Ohio State self-imposed.

    It's impossible to say, but that is why you self impose last year. They needed to force the NCAA to pull the trigger. If they impose a 2 year bowl ban, we still didn't lose anything since last years season was a train wreck.

    They can spin it however they want, the decision they made last year from a business perspective was embarrassing and amateur.

    Wow, reading comprehension fail on my part.

    I have to mostly agree with Bill. Gee's comment that they would have added an extra year is speculative. IIRC, tOSU hired an independent firm to help their decision process who suggested a self-imposed bowl ban. This suggestion came back before the Purdue game last year when tOSU was very much in contention to make the conference championship game. Ohio State would not have been pulling a Miami and enacting a bowl ban once a tier-1 bowl was out of the question. This would have been seen as a meaningful self imposed penalty. I do not think it is a given that the NCAA would have imposed a 2nd year of a bowl ban. And I absolutely do not believe that tOSU's plan was "Hey they're going to add an extra year to whatever we impose, so let's just say 0 years!!!!" as is somewhat implied.

    ORD_Buckeye Kiss the ring, Fredo.

    I'm still shocked that he not only survived but apparently has full and unconditional support, particularly in light the rumblings that I was hearing a year ago.

    The man must have pics of Wexner, Gee, Schottenstein and Ong in a hot tub....naked.....with an African baby named O.J. It's the only god damned thing that possibly makes this whole thing sensible.
