this may be of some local interest
Mr Ellis to be revealed?
He was SI's anonymous source for their article.
Well didn't he talk with them before but didn't say anything since they couldn't guarantee that he would remain anonymous.
Right, which means he didn't talk to them before.
I believe that "Ellis" was the pseudonym George Dohrmann gave the primary source of his Sports Illustrated article.
I really, really, really, really, hope this is true.
Torg isn't the greatest source. He also said some Michigan players were selling autographs to a NW Ohio dealer yesterday.
That being said, it could potentially lead to some trouble for a few more OSU players if it turns out they lied to the NCAA. I'm not sure it will affect OSU the "institution" since the summary judgement seemed to indicate OSU did all it could to educate them about the rules.
Eh, I believe he reported that a source of his was saying the UM stuff. In this case (at least according to the Bucknuts thread), this Torg guy is actually texting with Ellis. So maybe more credible? I hope so at least.
time for more squirming in Columbus
No I'm Sparticus! I mean Ellis...
Hello this is Ellis. You called?
I wish we could posbang again.
"Keep your butthole tight!"
I'm burned out on this whole ordeal. I don't care if their program is crooked. We knew it before this incident happened. The character of the players, coaches, school officials and fan base is the problem. That is what enabled this whole situation to fester. Tress was fired over it, but he was just a cog in a defective machine. The culture down there is screwed up. A coach leaving the program won't change that.
Somehow they have to recognize their ways are wrong and that just ain't going to happen.
Michigan needs to man-up and beat them down the old fashioned way. Michigan football is going to have to play better. I could give a shit about the rest of it.
Yea but wouldnt you feel all warm and fuzzy inside if the NCAA drops the hammer on OSU?
When you think of all the death threats THE Ohio State University has used to intimidate and tamper with potential witnesses, it would be great if someone actually showed up and testified against them at a hearing.
Then, the NCAA would have no excuses left and would have to finally give them what they so richly deserve.
And when it does i will camp out in the front yard with a big ol jethro size bowl of popcorn. and watch all my Buckeye neighbors break down and fill the streets with their tears.
Is he doing full frontal or just some ball cleavage in his revealing?
About Ellis I think about Morgan Freeman's character in Shawshank.
Also a guy who could get things..... coincidence? I think not!
so take it for what it's worth, Mr. Ellis didn't testify the first time because he feared Mr. Rife. IF that's true, I think Rife would only go after Ellis if he was revealing more ILLEGAL activity such as selling drugs. There have been rumors about some of these players trading their stuff for drugs or maybe even working for Rife.
I think I have tosu sanction fatigue too. Does anybody know if today's hearing will finalize anything or is there still more to this process with the current NCAA notice. I know they can appeal but that usually doesn't go anywhere.
Great insight and link!
Not good for ohio.
Productivity will be interupted frequently in the upcoming week.
Very interesting Mr. Ellis to meet with NCAA next week! Torg said he had to delete a picture because he wanted no part of it! Just listen it's worth it I'll post link below. I can't believe these guys are ohio fans! GO Blue!
I think they are from Minnesota and Wisconsin. They are fairly coherent and sometimes funny for Columbus broadcasters. I think they are tosu fans in name only.
