Kirk Barton was a great player and leader for the Buckeyes, the number one football program in the land.
I hope young Mr. Pryor recognizes the tradition of the Ohio State Buckeyes!

Barton proudly sported new athletic apparel from Under Armour, with whom he signed after the combine.

''For a lineman, you just get apparel unless you're Joe Thomas,''

I don't even know what this cr*p means. How many agents does Barton have yet, 8? I hate this stuff more each day.

I almost hafta' agree with Mr. Pluto. I quit watching the pros due to the commercialization of the sport. Now with college coaches making the mega millions, the corporations are right behind, selling their souls to buy influence and cheapening a once spirited and honorable sport.

obviuosly this is a misprint or the young man mispoke, he is saying only O-linemen like Joe Thomas get an endorsement contract from a company like Under Armour, Under Armour is not his AGENt you idiot, they are paying him to wear their clothing line, so he gets free clothes form them too, shoes, socks, pants, shirts,and the like, where do you get the idea he has 8 agents? maybe you hate this stuff becasue you don't understan dit, stick with Sponge Bob Square Pants and scocer, they seem more up your alley.

Comercialization? of college football? so what? how doe sit effect the game and the young men who play it? maybe you would like to go back to the old "four horsemen days" and days of a good old Army, Nvy rivalry for the Nathional Championship, that makes sense, our military should be more focused on football and not defending the country, all because Home Depot and Nike have put their mitts on the game. give me a break, without the commercialization you would never be able to watch the games, they wouldn't be on TV.

Stow? Go bulldogs. You guys beat our ass all the time. The Kenmore Cards in the pits and shits of south Akron. My dad was a city council man there for years in the 1980's and 1990's.
