    I think college athletics will enter a very dark period. How can you expect the athlete not to put his hand out with this amount of money being thrown around?

    yes Otis i know cars and pussy all the way back to the 1940's and 1950's you assclown. I'm talkin multi million dollar free agent coaches with cars, and shoe deals, and country club memberships, and lear jets. Wake up dickhead and smell the coffee. Now it's time to go to church.Now that I've got a warnings level figured I'd better get honest and admit my attendance at church is only for funerals

    I think it was stated in the media recently that booster contributions make up about 10% of Ohio State's athletic budget. A far cry from the one-third at Florida. Maybe this is where the media latches on to a larger truth: that the problems faced at Ohio State are systemic of the entire NCAA membership, and that Ohio State is honestly trying to do something about it.

    I think the funniest part is that the article was twice broken up by "Advertisement". How ironic.
