Makes me wonder if it will discourage some recruits from going there?
I understand it, but it would rub me the wrong way if my University told me they wanted to monitor my checking account
Grand standing and does absolutely nothing.
Here is some cash, a debit card and some gift cards.
Have at it.
I doub it. After all, you already had the kid earlier this year tweet he was only at tOSU to play football and didnt care about class
Katzenmoyer said that 15 years ago
I think the general idea is a good one.
I'd rather see players all have to take a mandatory money manegment class as a requirement to graduate (or be eligible to play). Incorporate this policy into the class.
and he's the one they're saying is likely to transfer, shocker
I don't think so. If you're going to get a full college ride from the school itself (along with other benefits), I don't see any wrong with the institution getting to lay some ground rules, i.e. what they get to monitor, what the student athletes' responsibilities are, etc. If this is too much control, can't you make the argument that not letting a player sell his own things is too much control as well (which is ultimately what caused this increased focus on compliance)?
Didn't know I got his tweet.
Pure window dressing, not to mention about a dozen years too late ...
Too late for what?
Heh heh... People in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks.
leading by example per usual...
I like it and when it's explained to them as a life tool hopefully they will be receptive to it. It's not like the school can mandate what you spend your money on but maybe it'll help some kids make wiser decisions.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
The thing is, we fired the coach, cut ties with the booster, vacated the wins, and HAVE NEVER WELCOMED THEM BACK.
I'm pretty sure
1. They investigated this thing and " didn't find much" surprise, surprise
2. Most of the stadium cheered for tressel like he's a hero for not allowing you the opportunity to play for a national title
Well, the Fab Five never won a championship. Any championship.
Let's not forget about Charles Woodson taking 14K from a booster either.
I don't think it is right for OSU to do that. I'm all for compliance, but that is an invasion of privacy.
Got to the Final Four as all freshman and again as sophomores Not that it matters since they've been vacated
You must be confusing him with Troy Smith. Or Terrelle Pryor. Or one of the other star OSU players suspended for violating NCAA rules during the Tressel era.

"After a USAir flight crashed on its way from Columbia to Charlotte, N.C., Jones tracked down a child whose father had died onboard and convinced the boy's mother to let Summit manage his settlement. From March 1997 to March 1998, Brown and Jones siphoned more than $90,000 from that account. They also got hundreds of thousands in loans from a local accountant, a lawyer in their building, a former president of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, even a 75-year-old benefactor of a local black college. Brown and Jones reinvested some of that cash into keeping athletes happy, like spending nearly $14,000 on clothes and shoes for Charles Woodson, who would become their first major non-South Carolina client, while he was a junior at Michigan."
So uh... Tell me how your namesake taking $14,000 from scouts (some of that money which came from a fund meant to provide restitution to the family of a plane crash victim) is more innocent than Troy Smith taking a couple hundred from a booster or Terrelle Pryor selling his own personal property. Go ahead. I'll wait...
