    Some of the highlights:

    According to this: Football attendance statistics... Kent State, Bowling Green, and Akron are all at risk. Even Miami of Ohio missed 15k at least one year in the last 10.

    Sorry Petie, but...
    I wonder what this will do to USC recruiting (and ours for that matter)? It does seem like it will level the playing field a bit.

    What the heck?!?! He's charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and gets no punishment?

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    Intent to distribut is based solely (ok, maybe not solely but in most cases that is the basis) on the ammount of weed he had, also if he was stoopid enough to have a scale. I would suggest that maybe it was something like he bought a half that was in 2 quarters. But I never touch the stuff :biggrin:

    I wonder what would have happened if he was at OSU?

    Looks like no more jets for USC, its a good change and they should have taken these steps a few years ago in my opinion.

    The private jet thing won't affect USC.

    Pete can still fly to wherever he wants. I don't believe that USC has used the jet to fly the recruits anywhere - that's what got banned.

    Not true! Here's an excerpt from Chris Leak's recruiting diary:


    USC is EXACTLY the type of school that got these rules on the books!

    IntheBoro,

    Thanks for the correction. Apparently I've been misled by some overzealous USC posters that were defending their program.

    Boro: It makes me smile when I think about them not being able to use that recruiting tool (Jet).....it obviously makes a big impression on recruits when they send a private jet to pick you up........

    :osu4:

    BB73, No worries! I had to look it up, but I knew I had read it somewhere.

    No kidding! Re-reading the Chris Leak piece I'm thinking, "How in the heck did this kid wind up at Florida over USC?" With that recruiting experience even I might have gone to USC... well, OK me at 18... never mind I still wouldn't have gone, but it would have been fun! :wink2:

    I think he received similar treatment. I remember reading his recruiting diary on ESPN.com about his trip to Florida and Iowa. There was defenitely mention of Zook using their jet.

    I remember mention of a private jet from Florida during Willie Williams recruiting diary last year. ...Or maybe that was Auburn. ...Or maybe both.
