He was a nationally-awarded high school player, national college star at Ohio State, and 1960 gold medal Olympian and international player before starring as a professional player in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

He remains today the only three-time Big Ten Player of the Year, and was also twice named NCAA Player of the Year"

    technically i never said anyone on the team worshiped him or even liked him. what i actually said was if you asked any member of the team if they thought he were a savior or a worthless piece of garbage (like many seem to feel), which they would choose :wink:.

    nope. is there some amount of relevance in this question or were you just curious about my opinion here?

    has nothing to do with emotion and everything to do with fact. in 2014 we were without question one of the top 4 teams in the country and he knew it and he said it publicly. after the wisky game we were at best a bubble team that had a chance if we got the right matchups. he knew what his team was and what they were capable of. if you look at the statements objectively, he told you exactly what he thought of his teams capabilities those years. i can't argue with his assessments to date honestly.

    or it could be that wilson came in later than you would like an oc to do AND it was his first year being an oc after being a head coach for literally years. he had an entire roster to get to know and figure out how to properly utilize. further he had a crazy young team. youth and or inexperience at literally every position not c and qb..? last year was just the first date. i refuse to grade wilson until after this season.

    as far as meyer hamstringing wilson somehow. that's just silly. if wilson doesn't have the balls to stand up to literally anyone in college football after the success he has had he's in the wrong line of work. im just waiting for people to start telling me he intimidated schiano into staying at tOSU.

    I personally think the NO Saints would be a better choice for him. Good luck to him though.

    Is it common for UFAs with supposedly no NFL skills to get 3 year contracts?

    Serious question; I really don't know.

  11. Yes, because the contracts are for the minimum and not guaranteed beyond any signing bonus (which could be nothing or a few grand for UDFAs). So there's no risk for the team. If the player makes the team and contributes he will get playing time bonuses from the NFL's performance pay fund but the team isn't on the hook for anything beyond the minimums for in-season weeks the player is on the roster.

    That was my question. So he’s making somewhere in the neighborhood of 10-12k a week for as long as he’s on the roster?

    Without looking it would be something along the line of 450K/16 per week (unless they divide it by 17, but whatever that ends up, like 30K per week.)

  14. If I'm reading the NFL wage scale right, it would be something like 3 years at 480k/570k/660k and I believe it is prorated weekly over a 17 week season since players get paid for the bye week. The practice squad would be closer to 10k per week than 30ish, but teams technically can offer higher than the minimum to practice squad players to keep them from signing with other teams. Some teams have paid practice squad players the same as active rookies. But you see a lot of guys, especially the 6th/7th/UDFA marginal roster guys (many Buckeye alums of recent years included), who spend part of a season on the roster and part of it on the squad, changing teams multiple times, etc. Then you've got split contracts for guys on IR, waived with injury settlements, etc. It can get fairly complicated but for the most part the team has a lot of control the first 3-4 years and it's all some level of a prorated minimum salary. Even some of the higher drafted guys are on pretty much the same salary but they get higher signing bonuses and longer contracts/options.

    after today, I wouldn't be surprised if JT pushed Tom Savage off the roster
