Re: Big Ten passes SEC in total revenue by $132 million in 2017-18

The Big 10(14) is flush with cash, but based on results they are not getting much bang for their bucks. The question becomes how long will the mega million television contracts last? With cable subscriptions trending ever downward, will P5 college football become pay for view?

Re: OSU QB MATTHEW BALDWIN ENTERS NCAA TRANSFER PORTAL

Just read on Eleven Warriors a short time ago, that Matthew Baldwin has transferred to TCU in Texas. At least he gets to go back to his home state and is applying for immediate eligibility. Not sure if a pro style qb will be a good fit for TCU in the wide open Big 12, though I wish him well. Agree ...

Re: 2019 Cincinnati Reds

Through 5/2/19 the Reds are 13-18 and 7 games back of the division leading Cardinals. Cincy though is 12-10 since their disastrous 1-8 start to the season. Surprisingly the Reds lead the NL in team pitching ERA and are dead last in the NL in team batting average. The Reds are to call up top prospect...

Re: Buckeyes Solve Quarterback Depth Problem

Re: Dabo Swinney $93 Million Contract

I'm sorry but that just not right.

Still $9.3 million would pay for a lot of academic scholarshi...

Re: Bosa #2 Pick to Niners Haskins # 15 to Redskins

Haskins was mad and said he has something to prove in his interview afterward. A lot of the professional evaluators don't like his footwork and think he'll be a sitting duck in the NFL which is also my opinion. I guess time will tell but I think he'd better save a lot of that signing bonus and inve...

Two OSU Buckeyes have become wealthy men. Bosa went number two as expected while Haskins may have been snubbed by the Giants when they took Duke's Daniel Jones as the sixth pick.

I am not a fan. Baldwin just jumped in the same category as Tater Tot in my eyes. Cowards. Good riddance.
