Rent is expensive. Give the man a break!
You stay classy, Marcus Hall (and Columbus)
so are tattoos.
Loaner cars arent.
is quite notable.
And I usually cut ohio a break when it comes to academics, but this was a very staee thing to do. Shame shame.
Spelleable words are hard.
Staeeying classey is not.
Are you surprised by this? Ohio being Ohio.
ohio on par with Staee ....
Not exactly trading card appropriate, but if he wants to be remembered for his on-field contributions....
And there we have the single most OSU thing ever.
All of you people are acting like they go there to play school.
behind Woody's adventures with the chain gang and the tearing down of the M Club banner, and tied with "everyone murders".
the number of unusable coolers that remain after an ohio home game.
I did forget. But who says they are not reusing them?
Sorry, but: "(n)ot everybody's the perfect person in the world. I mean everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me, whatever" wins Most OSU Thing Ever. It's not even close.
(Of course, I may be biased.)
I think TP went outside himself to an almost..... Kerouacian..... place to develop that poetry. To the extent he offends with his defense of general mayhem, he atones with the wonderful language..... kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me..... Absolutely classic.
They're two damn good candidates.
The case for this Hall photo is that you have:
- a misspelling
- a guy profiting from something that he probably shouldn't profit from (not a comment about athletes earning money; just a comment about people earning money for acting like asses)
- a borderline-insane hatred of its rival
- general boorishness
It also has OSU beating Michigan, which unfortunately is becoming pretty typical OSU, too.
The case for both the yard marker and banner incidents read pretty much the same:
- one was committed by and the other sanctioned by their now-sainted head coach
- instead of apologies, both were rationalized by same after the fact(s)
- both are well remembered by both schools 40 years later. We see these as unsportsmanlike in the extreme. They are proud of them. The Hall incident may have some legs over the next half-century. His (pathetic) mispelled poster will probably not.
- The case for the Everyone Murders soliloquy being The Most OSU Thing Ever is that a person actually got on camera, with time to prepare his answer, and stated "everyone kills people, murders people, ..."
But choosing between these is understandably difficult - it's like picking between Sparty No! moments. All three incidents are so over-the-top it's hard to pick a clear winner. (My original "Reshuffle the Deck" comment was purely tongue-in-cheek, and driven by my user name.)
I've always generally understood what was meant when an athlete goes on some crazy rant even if the words were poorly chosen (see A. Iverson - Practice). In Everyone Murders, however, I think TP's just making a statement on hypocrisy and the importance of forgiveness, but I'm not totally sure. Truly Buckeye stuff there.
The previous poster mentioned leaving a city full of shit-laden coolers after a football game. As the dinner hour descends, I think we both may be wrong.
would have been removing the five (right, Urban?) letter Ms.
issue something of an apology in the days after The Game? Or was it just for his on-field misbehavior?
Either way, this shows the world what he's all about. And, by association, what OSU is all about.
Where's you 2011 ones, bitch?
it's pretty stupid to insert the NFL logo in the lower left corner. I'm pretty sure Mr. Hall will be hearing from the League lawyers if he is indeed selling these. Duh.
I didn't even notice that until you mentioned it. Yeah, I'm thinking someone somewhere is going to be getting in a bit of trouble over that.
At least he was smart enough to not use an Athletic Department approved block M.
Even so, I bet the department would have something to say about it. I'd be surprised if U-M didn't get in touch with Mr. Hall in the form of a cease-and-desist-and-by-the-way-you-owe-us-for-the-ones-you've-already-sold letter.
but, I expect he will sell a gazillion of these to Ohio fans of all stripes. And yes, the NFL is going to have something to say about the use of its logo. You'd think that with such a money-maker, he could find someone with enough common sense to know that.
Then again, maybe you wouldn't.
Blame Ron Burgundy.
You stay classy.
I'm Ron Burgandy.
What a dope.
Right out of my keyboard. What else can you say?
With educational mishaps lately.
But...but...he said he was "sorry!"
He belongs at Ohio State. It's a a perfect fit for him, and he's perfect for the university.
Digusting act from a player of a digusting "school".
A signed copy can be picked up for $19.99 on Ebay. They are also having a signing where you can pick up a 8x10 copy and have it signed for $15 or a 16x20 version signed for $25.
Get them while you can because with the NFL trying to clean up it's image and the NFL insignia on the poster, they will be rare very soon. As a potential hall of famer they will be worth hundreds (of pennies) soon.
Selling sports goods already?
not asked back by Urban. He is evidently a casualty of OSU over signing. I'm not sure if he had NFL plans but this could lead to some interesting interviews.
He'll be a solide contributore for my Hamiltone Tigere Cates
It says 4x gold pants which I take to mean he was on teams that beat UM 4 times but they lost in 2011 so that's 5 years unless he was somehow hoping to get a 6th year of eligibility.
he was a 5th year senior.
Pretty good spelling for a guy who ain't come to play school.
what about the use of the block M? And also, DB would not approved as the split M is banned
Why is there an NFL logo in the bottom corner.
He's Marcus Hall.
He's from ohio.
Do you walk to school or do you carry your lunch?
DIDN'T GO THERE TO PLAY SCHOOL
him accounteable for this blatant mockery of his punishment. But then again, it's debatable if this even matters.
is that he sounded contrite after the fact, and even a couple weeks later was apologetic about it in newspaper articles. Then he does this? What a colossal jerk.
He did what they made him do. Now that the focus has shifted elsewhere, he is free to be his true self.
This shouldn't be a surprise. This was Marcus Hall's most notable career moment.
Haha this is utterly fantastic
Everything about this amazing and hilarious. Love that Hall is profiting on the greatest moment of his career and love the spelling error.
Apart from damages to the stellar reputation most around the country hold for OSU, does this hurt them at all in the eyes of the NCAA? He's still a student there, right? Any sort of sanctions or anything in order? I thought selling autographs was against the rules, but I don't really have any idea.
they'll get in more trouble over the NFL logo compared to the selling of things. He's a student, yes, but not playing for the team anymore. But not in the pros yet either. Given the NCAA's track record on things like this, I don't think they'll lift a finger over it. Even though I think technically he could/should get in trouble over it, he won't. Just my guess.
at the link I provided above, he is no longer on the team.
I assume he was a casualty of the OSU oversigning.
He is no longer on the team because he was a fifth-year senior this year.
cut us some slack. Judging by his behavior, it was difficult to tell that he was a fifth-year senior at the time.
Judging by his spelling, it is difficult to determine whether he was even enrolled in college. Playing school is for squares!
No it doesnt hurt them in the least. When the NCAA spun the big wheel of infraction penalties regarding OSU the "look the other way" slot came up.
That's the only slot on the whole wheel. They don't even bother spinning it anymore. Saves time.
With his eligibility up, there's nothing the NCAA can do anymore, even if they wanted to, which they probably don't. Now he's just a student, which is outside their jurisdiction.
If he's still a student is he paying to attend OSU or is he still on scholarship this semester?
I always thought that the team had to be down to 85 players but the time the new recruits arrive in the fall.
in some fan's trailer, and Hall will be $35 richer. Let them have their fun.
Step one: Spell "Notable" wrong
Step two: Unautorized use of UM and NFL logos
Step three: ???????
Step four: Profit.
...spell "unauthorized" wrong.
Well good thing I only did that in a post on a blog, and not on something I'm trying to sell to the public, otherwise that would be embarrassing.
Minus the vacated win...
Wow, even over 5 years he clearly did not play any school.
On other idiot news. Lion King Conaway. Is dropping Conaway. To just go by Lion King. https://twitter.com/thed_zone/status/435464478033866752
You mean "In unrelated news of the awesome." I'm sorry, but If I am in the same position I am totally dropping my last name. Lion King is just hilarious.
I'm glad the EMU is currently not putting names on their jerseys. I would not be able to photograph that with making some sort of snarky comment. But if the not putting names is an English thing and Creighton starts putting names on jerseys, would he have King or Lion King?
And on the topic really at hand...why am I reminded of the final scene in Slap Shot when I see the picture of the Buckeye dude flipping the fans off?
Do you even college bro?
also appears he used the old NFL logo, which was changed like 5 yrs ago
I'm guessing this was bullshit:
"I would like to apologize to The Ohio State University, The University of Michigan, my teammates, my family, the fans and the TV viewing audience for my behavior during yesterday's game. Wearing the scarlet and grey uniform is a privlege and an honor. I let my emotions get the best of me and didn't conduct myself properly in the heat of the moment. My actions do not reflect who I am as a person and teammate. I love The Ohio State University and appreciate everything it has done for me. From the bottom of my heart, I am truly sorry and hope everyone can accept my sincere apology."
The spelling thing is cringeworthy, but I'd be happy for the kid if he makes some coin off this.
Some writer put it so well when he said Hall fulfilled the lifetime fantasy of every OSU fan when he gave the entire Big House the double bird. It's funny to me.
If he's found a way to part some OSU fans with their money, good on him. It's such a bonus if they all proudly hang them up without knowing the thing is spelled wrong.
I was so happy to see this.
Living in Ohio and dealing with the idiots that I do I added this to my Facebook page.
Entitled it. "Reason number E why my kids won't be going to Ohio State."
So I get an ex neighbor now living in Texas who suggests I want my kids to have a mediocre football team.
I reply I'd like them to get a notable education.
Then I get the biggest OSU asshat I can think of that I went to high school with.
-I guess that means you have never given anyone the finger in a moment of rage?
- Oh and by the way E is not a number!
Me - Does this prove my point?
- which point? that you don't know the difference between a letter and a number? Or that since you have never used the middle finger, you should be nominated for sainthood?
Me - Your responses are very notable.
- Thank you!
Only in Ohio ladies and gentlemen.
Hey you....how you been?
Same ole same ole. Miss the spawn.
I'll ask the unthinkable - do you ever wish we had a different rival? They're easy to hate and they are lower life forms, but do we really want to put up with this? Hypothetical.
