We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
We don't oversign because B1G says we can't, so I don't know what they could do to us aside from witholding money or banning us from championship compitition.
It's a forgone conclusion that we're going to sign more guys than we have spots, so we will oversign this year. I'm OK with that, because what's shadey to me is the timing of when you make you're "cuts".
I believe it was in a Boarding House a few weeks ago that said coaches were going to sit down with a few players and tell them that they will not play here and encourage and I hope help them find new programs. This needs to happens soon after signing day, because, what makes the SEC west so dirty is going all spring with full rosters and waiting until right before the season to get rid of them.

We're technically allowed to "oversign" by 3, but we have to explain to the B1G offices of why we're taking 3 extra players. And remember, we're still at the 82 limit, not 85. But, if we did sign say 27 players in this class, we don't have to be at 82 scholarship athletes until the start of fall camp. Somewhere between NSD and August 1 (or whenever fall camp starts), we would have 6 months to make room to fit those extra players.
And I shall rejoice in victory for another 365 days over That School Up North.
i just hope we don't take 6 months. Do it soon after signing day and we will still hold the moral high ground.

I don't think it will take 6 months either. I would expect @ spring ball is when we'll start seeing most departures. When depth charts are set, and grueling conditioning, players realizing they'll never play a down at OSU, etc. get underway is when I expect to see rumors of and actual transfers to begin. There's been a few names tossed around as early candidates i.e Tommy Brown, Baldwin, Carter, etc.
The Father, The Son... well, it's the
The Holy Trinity... as I see it.
