I love Buckeye tears. A letter from a bucknut's heart.
*plays world's smallest violin*
I'm actually just rolling a boog to flick at you
that it's is a fairly honest post, though. The Posey and Herron revelation as to the "jobs" this summer, while amazingly resulting in a mere one game suspension, could be a game changer in terms of the overall investigation into tOSU. SMU really go hammered when prohibited actiivty continued during and even after an NCAA investigation. To think that this summer, during everything that was transpiring, two of the player originally involved in the fiasco broke the rules again, perhaps a more serious violation, nobody from the althletic department was aware and acted to prevent, and now they are still seriously going to return to the team. Goodluck OSU, I think you are well on your way to feeling some serious wrath. From Day 1, tOSU has handled all of these matter with a breathtaking degree of incompetence, every bad decision is only made worse by the next bad decision. It is still spiraling and nobody, NOBODY connected with the University is taking true, honest, and directed measure to change the atmosphere in that Universities athletic program.
Those players will be kicked off the team. OSU is not out of the woods yet, and I do believe that a significant NCAA smackdown may still be a real possibility. Posey and Herron have seen their last action at OSU, give it a week.
And the poster said re: kidney stones, "my pain is real and it is enormous." Good stuff, Buckeye fan or not.
that 90% of OSU fans love Tressell, and that OSU's penalty < USC's penalty, so BFD.
To the buckeye that wrote the post, cry me a river...
The part I can't figure out is the deafening silence from the NCAA. I know we're waiting on the results of the original hearing in August but has there been any word on whether there is in fact an ongoing investigation by the NCAA about all this other nonsense.
Mgoblog gods have frowned upon you.
...you have said something profoundly uninformed or otherwise dumb. You've not been banned, so there is time yet to redeem yourself.
He pulled a Hank Williams Jr.
by chance tell me where said post of boobs is located?
You posted a picture of boobs. 'Round these parts, we don't post pictures of boobs, no matter how attractive said boobs may be.
Your points will be back in a month.
Your tongue? Bite it.
You've been here a week. My suggestion, hang around and don't post anything, get a feel for the place--what is accepted, what is not then after a while start posting. If you can't do that, leave. We don't want this to turn in to RCMB.
80% would somehow have to give up our undergraduate diplomas first, then develop an inferiority-persecution complex. We would also need to start thinking of sofas as an alternative fuel, possibly even replacing biodiesel or wind.
Ahahaha I love these conversations! Everyone's STFUing everyone else for no apparent reason!
I dont know where the idea of Brian loving Scarlett J. came into your head, Brian only loves his wife, and he doesent need to go online for naked pics of her.
He got -1000 for the boobs pic on the "Brown Jug" thread?
Waaaaay too touchy around here sometimes. The one I saw didn't have any nudity, only jugs in bras, but maybe something else was posted later that I missed?
There was a picture in the "All-Time Record v. MSU" thread. And it was full-on boobie (tastefully presented though it may have been).
Newbies gotta learn somehow...
seriously I thought that the picture of cow otters was his original picture, it creeped me out.
you posted a picture of a nude woman on a thread
Stop with the emoticons.
Perhaps we were not clear about the rules:
Rule #1: NO JUGS
Really? How come they were accetable last week?

Is this one okay?
If there is no JUGS, how can we tell how fast Denard is running?
I'm no rocket scientist but I'd guess your NSFW comment had something to do with it. Probably the only way to get all those points back is if you can find a scandle at OSU.
If you go to the top bar, there is a link to "Useful Stuff." Under this is "Official mgoboard peeves." Scroll down this link from Brian, and you will find this pet peeve of his. This is one way we stay classy. It also is a way to avoid censure when surfing mgoboard at work. If this isn't enough for you, do a search on NSFH.
It's a picture of boobies!
Ever open a fifteen-post thread at work and get two different 800x600 pictures of impossibly fake boobs alternating for pages and pages? And then have your boss walk up behind you? Thanks, internet hero, for turning my idle surfing of a sports site into a firing offense! No one needs to see the same set of fake gazongas eighty times accompanied by your three words of deep insight into the team of your choice.
Go to Rivals and click on a thread.
Person is fourteen and has a constant boner. Likely to turn into a guy who says "stud" constantly after being rejected by women for the next ten to eighty years.
An introduction to life's harsh realities, hopefully beginning with a slap upside the head.
Anybody with a site on Rivals.
Arguments about hot chicks are always welcome as long as denoted in the subject title and the specific purpose of a thread. Also exempt are pictures of Scarlett Johansson.
Yeah I was being sarcastic. Thanks though.
this guy actually seems to see whats up and understand thats they are fahkd

Wow. Can you say, poorly written sob article?
...this is how it went down
Buckeye fanbois need to get a hold of some of these virtual monkeys.
Incredible... not quite sure it counts as "writing" Shakespeare's plays, but cool nonetheless.
What the fuck is 'mommies vase'? Apparently proper grammar is optional even when making good points about your cheating program. I look forward to the next 10 years of raining piss over Columbus and hope that the next billion days offers pain and disappointment for that, and I use the term loosely, university. Please pass THE popcorn and keep in coming.
The grammar police really get on my nerves. Quit it already. It's so over played. We get it, people make mistakes when they type.
[throws another OSU banner on the fire to keep warm]
[chases tears with bourbon]
pure gold. Seemed almost....logical? If poorly written.
He isn't pretending like it isn't a big deal or that it is all a series of isolated incidents. Heck, most Buckeye fans look at this like one giant conspiracy to make OSU look bad. He is actually holding Smith and Gee accountable and telling the players they should be off the team for what they did (despite the fact that they are great players). I would say that he is an exception to so many Buckeye fans, and I think he was pretty reasonable actually.
I read 11W and bucknuts pretty regularly, and his sentiments are about the same for those two blogs... the fanbase has turned...
Finally. I was wondering what it was going to take . . . Gordon Gee caught with a dead girl or a live boy?
Seems like this Buckeye should be commended for taking his head out of the sand, as opposed to my one buckeye friend on facebook, who posted:
Getting tired of the witch hunt aimed at OSU.
Which several people "liked" and to which another responded with "Amen." It is incomprehensible to me that anyone could continue to blame the media instead of blaming the chumbalones who continue to choose a few quick 'bucks' over their school and their teammates.
It amuzes me that this is a "witch hunt" honestly...
IMO it all comes down to a couple simple steps.
1. Stop doing stupid things and inform your players of the rules, then ESPN and the rest won't be forming a "witch hunt" on you.
2. Stop acting like its not a big deal and they are all "isolated incidents."
3. Take it like a man and fix the issues.
4. Move on. (PROFIT??)
but I do feel sorry for the portion of the OSU fan/alum base that has been let down through all of this. I suspect that a fair amount of Buckeyes want their program to be clean and project a good name on their school and state, but the Tressel/Smith/Pryor/Gee types keep embarrassing them. How many in Ohio wish they had an administration that reacted the same way that M did after Ed Martin broke? I'd venture to say a good amount of people.
Hell, I would describe a fair amount of Michigan alums/fans as more disappointed than happy or angry, these guys are supposed to be our mirror images on the field, the greatest rivalry in sports, and it's being completely fucked by a coach, AD and administration who don't care.
Just some thoughts for tonight. That being said, the rest of them can kiss my maize and blue ass, and I'll take Kalis and Dunn every day of the week.
I agree to a point, but for every reflective buckeye fan there are three idiots who spew the "everyone is doing it" and "why does the NCAA / ESPN / <insert scapegoat> hate us?" The complacent fan base allowed this to happen. How long would the UM alumni put up with Brandon if he put on that show that Smith did? We'd be howling in indignation for MSC to clean house. Its not that we don't have our apologists, but the vast majority of UM fans and alumni care about winning the right way and don't try to hide with SEC comparisons or cries of witch hunts.
Go Blue and Go Tigers!
I agree. The majority of M fans wouldn't put up with the things that the majority of OSU fans would, no question.
I've taken plenty of joy in the tears of ignorant OSU fans (and my best friend is almost one, I had to turn my phone off twice during the 2010 season) but it really does have to suck for the portion that think the way we do.
My little brother is an OSU alumnus. He's good at taking the high road and hasn't gloated too often. Like me, he is a B1G fan and roots for the conference except when they are playing his team.
Edit: He has backed away from his support of OSU since Tressel kept the tat5 in the Sugar Bowl. He was massively disappointed in the school after those shenanigans.
Hell, I wouldn't put up with that sort of crap from Eastern let alone Michigan. I like to think that Michigan is a clean program and done the right way. If that means we may never win another National Championship again....so be it. I just wish the powers that be would be more consistent in their enforcement of the rules. Why should the schools that try to run clean programs be the ones that are punished by not appearing in the Championships or whatever? But I guess the cheaters never look at things that way. Instead they wonder why the NCAA, ESPN or whatever is picking on them....and then they justify by saying that they are winners...that's why.
I think the vast majority of their fans; if you've been to Ohio/Michigan or met these donkeys anywhere were blissfully aware that they had the free pass. Sure Clarett took money but he was a 'rogue' athlete and it wasn't symptomatic of anything in their program. Same for Troy Smith and besides, it was "just $500". Santonio Holmes was apparently a liar and nobody could ever prove that AJ Hawk took anything or received any improper benefits. So there. As for Terrelle Pryor, well, he was a "bad apple" from day one. Tressel was a saint improving the lives of these downtrodden young men and it's terrible what happened to him taking the blame for a system, that's right a system, where everyone is doing it....why just look at the SEC.
Face it, all these donkeys wanted to do was paint their faces, wear a bunch of chestnuts on a necklace and yell OH-IO until it made you nauseous. Did you ever really think credibility entered the discussion for any of them? Of course it didn't. I feel for both of their fans who actually suffer the pain of ethics. As for the rest of them: I hope this pain lasts for at least the ten years I had to suffer with Tressel and their arrogance with only the awesome memories of 'the pose', Charles Woodson and the 97 National title to get me by.
I'll be enjoying these guys pain; indeed, I'll be enjoying it a lot.
who had their coach get 2 seisures in 2 weeks. OSU hasn't suffered anything yet. They played an ineligible QB for 2 years, have enjoyed the fruits of cheating for Tressel's entire tenure (remember he cheated at YSU, and everyubody knew it). Also, OSU hasn't even heard their penalty. Last we heard, it was a slep on the wrist. They still beat UM 7 years in a row, and it would have been 8, had JT and the tat5 remained.
I suspect that a vast majority of buckeye fans want to win at all costs and knew what was going down. Again, they had an awesome run (4 of the same years, where Michigan stunk up the room). They are getting what they deserve.
better and better. I don't know if I want Gene Smith to go down in flames for being a lying cheater or to keep his job so he can continue ruining tSIO's athletic department until the sun explodes.
That is one sweet pile of schadenfreude. Bring me more of your buckeye tears!
Gonna be a loooooong few years in Columbus. But at the end of the day, you know what? They did it to themselves.
This jackass was probably the same a-hold holding the banner below.
So here is my witty response to his open letter:
Dear Mourning Buckeye Fan,
Your incredible decade of arrogance is about to come to an end; your program's lying and cheating have finally caused for you to feel an iota of the pain caused to other non-offending programs during that time. I am sure that during the years (and years) of dishonesty surrounding your program you were surely insufferable to most if not all of your opponents and/or their fans. You likely completely ignored the obvious issues surrounding a complete lack of instutional control around your team. Yes, I am speaking to the Clarett issues and the Troy Smith taking money issues and the Santonio Holmes admission and of course that whole Terelle Pryor/Tat 5 thing (still ongoing, it seems). Three hundred and seventy five self-reported violations of the NCAA rules but these were minor and Tressel kept the really bad stuff to himself, right? This is, of course, why your school is fighting like crazy to keep the Sarniak, Smith, Gee and Tressel emails away from ESPN using FERPA as a nihilistic defense.
Not all of your fans are complete donkeys like the ones pictured above but since most are I revel in your pain.
Damn that's awesome.
After careful consideration, I've reached the following conclusion about all of this:
I love it. I live in Toledo and most ohio fans here are un realistic asses. It's nice not to here them run there mouths for once. It's funny gas station attendants, store clerks, waitresses etc... all these people I don't know would stop me and give me shit for wearing michigan apparel and talk trash. Needless to say I don't get stopped anymore. They all just disappeared like all of ohio s wins last year. So I dont feel sorry for any of those nut fans.
Remember back when there was a MGOBLOG postinghinting that a major college sports program might be in some sort of trouble...remember that? Wow. It seems like a decade ago now. Oh my, how the mighty are continuing to free-fall (this might not be the last of it). Whowouldathunkit?
It's been 681days since Ohio State won a Big Ten game without an asterisk.
Surprisingly lucid for a buckeye fan.
"A bouquet that never fades"
*A gift for the entire year*
I read the first two sentences and could have swore it was a woman who wrote that. I'm not exactly sure why, either.
If this guy graduated from tOSU, he should probably include his freshman writing class professor in the list of buckeyes that have let him down.
He's missing his comma key?
When the guy comments and says at least they hit rock bottom with the loss to miami. It's like the extinction of the dinosaurs, impending doom is coming and they don't even know it.
Looks like the Buckeye fans have finally given up hope. I can't wait to see what their final punishment will be. The death penalty is now a looming posibility.
He's right. Hard for me to take pleasure in this dude's suffering. I don't think he's being terribly over-the-top.
I completely missed this last night, but am having a great time reading it now.
...equal pain. I"ve heard that passing stones are ver painful...but what I witness the other day was...PRICELESS! I wonder if Kirby is the author?
Perhaps reality is finally sinking in for OSU fans. I don't know what punishment the program will ultimately receive but my hope is it gets cast into the depths of Hell for eternity.
