These are the kind of headlines even an Ohio State finds embarrassing. https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/12/us/ohio- ... index.html

Per OSU's Campus Newspaper The Lantern : “The affidavit said Riep recorded a video of the woman and told her to say it was consensual while she was crying and he laughed at her. The statement said Riep then drove the victim back to her residence.” https://www.thelantern.com/2020/02/ohio ... idnapping/

If such a video exists, these two could be going away for a long time.

Hope they don't announce they've transferred before they get an acceptance letter! They're in "deep voo doo" (GW Bush's phrase).

the only thing missing is The Urban Legend being the coach of record
Be a Hero Today.... Adopt a Shelter Pet... The Beatles once sang "Can't Buy Me Love"... I disagree, unconditional Love can be bought, for the nominal adoption fee at your local Pet Shelter !

True, OSU is also a "diploma factory."

It may be a football factory for players in the football program, but, like most if not all of the B1G, OSU is a pretty damned good academic institution as well. As pointed out in the post above, it's a very large flagship state University, that's a hell of a few steps academically above most of the true football factories in the SEC. It's currently ranked #54 by USN&WR, or two places higher than Tulane was two years ago.

And the best School of Dentistry in the country as well as an excellent undergraduate university . The AAC will never approach the B1G academically , nor will the SEC , ever .

🤔According to the ARWU rankings published by Dentistry Today, Michigan's dentistry school is no. 1 and OSU didn't even make the top 25 list?https://www.dentistrytoday.com/news/tod ... s-for-2018

In USNWR college rankings, Tulane was 39th and 44th in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Also there’s been some fraudulent work at their cancer center.

A colleague of mine went to OSU about 12 years ago as a guest and told me upon return that there was a lot questionable activity in Croce’s lab.

Ok, it was more than two years ago. But at the end of the Cowen error/start of the Fritz era we were tied with about 4 other schools (including UConn) at 56th in the USN&WR rankings. And regardless of where we were, OSU is a hell of a fine academic institution, as is most of their B1G counterparts.

Oops! Yeah, you right. Sometimes, Siri's auto corrections get past me in my posts. (Other times I just F up!)
