har har, but let me be mainly representative of the OSU fan who looks at things without the scarlet-colored glass, and there are quite a few of us, at least at 11W.
There is a fine line between being given a second chance, and being grandfathered through the system because of some inherent ability that has neither been earned, nor deserves some subsequent entitlement. When a kid messes up, I say give him a chance, but when a kid refuses to be held accountable for his actions, you won't find me in his fan club. The same goes for Tressel, despite his current employment at my hometown university. If Gene Smith was involved in the LOIC situation, I'll happily condemn him as well, and regardless, I'm not the biggest fan of Gordon Gee's business-minded policies, as applicable to the university that I attend.
