Plus Thad is starting to become a hot name as far as college coaches are concerned. He is starting to get more attention and get into the limelight a little more. That kind of attention brings more scrutiny to a person and his program and it can also inflate their egos to the point where they get somewhat out of control. Some guys it never happens to but fame makes people behave in strange ways. To me Thad seems to have a case of wanderlust. Sort of a job hopper. Now you may think that tOSU is a plum job since it is in the Big 10 and he is getting the cream of the crop in as far as recruits go but there are bigger jobs out there than tOSU as far as basketball goes. What if Coach K retired? Or Jim Calhoun? Maybe he would like to coach the best players in the NBA. Besides, I do not think Zimpher is as bad to an athletic program as she is painted to be. I do not think she handled everything regarding Huggins the right way but she seems to let the football program alone. Of course if a tree falls in a forest and no one is there, does it make a sound? I think Huggins personal problems with the DUI on top of some of the recent legal problems he had with players were the main problems. But I remember everyone predicting doom and gloom for UC this year and for the next several years and they came within a hair of making the NCAAs and might have been there if they had not lost those players to injuries. Then everyone thinks she will pick some dork who only cares about players graduating as the coach and they pick Mick Cronin. They may not ever be a dominant force in the Big East like they were in CUSA but anyone with half a brain knows that the Big East is a supremely better conference than CUSA was when UC was there.

    Hopefully she'll take her choice to run the law program with her

    One of the "Thad 5" got arrested last week for shooting someone in a back with a BB gun on campus, which is a felony.

    Mick can get UC back to the Huggins level of winning, probably even beyond, but the question is when will Nancy stick her nose into the program again? If a player gets in trouble is she going to run him out of town too?

    That would be David Lighty.

    I guess time will tell, but given some of the history involving boosters(Troy Smith and Maurice Clarett), I could see Nancy causing problems for Tressel.

    I would do a happy dance if Nancy and her fishnet stockings (yes, it is as disturbing as it sounds) make their way up I-71 (or any place for that matter). No dean or tradition is safe when she's around.

    And I grew up an OSU fan.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Unless you have numbers I'm unaware of, I'd say that the majority of the "major" confrence (Big 10, ACC, SEC, Big 12, Pac 10) college programs bring in more money than they lose on the Mens Basketball and Mens Football programs. As an average, D1 football programs reported a $4.7 million profit in 2001. Naturally that number is skewed by teams like Notre Dame, which clears almost $30 million in profit on TV money alone -- but for most schools, football is the moneymaker. For basketball, the average D1 school turned a $1.7 million profit (again skewed by schools like UK, which brought in $7 million).

    Now, once you get down to the "other half" of the D1 programs (MAC, C-USA, WAC, Sun Belt, Mountain West, etc.) then yeah, I'd imagine they're not exactly making a killing on their programs. Plus, virtually all universities bleed cash on other sports and most female sports (The average D1 women's basketball program loses $700,000 per year).

    I think you are right on basketball and football making money at most schools.
    However, every other college sport (with a few exceptions) loses money. Sports like wrestling often don't even get enough full scholarships to fund the entire team. Often the players have to share scholarships. Now I'm not saying that's wrong or right, but I am just saying most of the colleges still lose money on sports overall (or at least when I was in school). Now that the colleges are getting a lot more money from the NCAA tourney and bowl games, maybe more schools turn a profit on sports.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    The Big East baksetball deal with ESPN, which is going to be announced before the season starts, is supposed to be huge money that's going to be divided between the schools. Rumor puts the total package between $85-$100 million.

    Coug: Pardon me if I've been out of it. Are you/were you in law school at UC or just an interested party? I remember you being in law enforcement.

    Either way, what's the lowdown on the choice to run the program? I don't know anything about him/her.
