Even I find all of this hilarious

Next time you check out Cleveland, get a local to show you the right places and I think you'll get a better feel for the suburbs and the highlights. Tremont and Ohio City are two of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the midwest, and for the beer fan, you can't beat Ohio City for the number of small breweries per block, especially the best known Great Lakes Brewing Company

I don't stop by here as often as I used to, but I just wanted to pop in and say that even though I'm a lifelong Ohio State fan, I have nothing but pride and respect for the things thats some notable UM grads have done in this respect in the past few years. All schools have grads that do big things, but to see these former/current athletes start projects like this and the Pahokee project without any obligation is a great thing to see. I'd like to add that I've done what I can with my limited resources (college student) to support this and similar campaigns. This is a time that I think we can forget about our respective rivalries and individual pride and just share a moment of hope for those who may need it.

He did deal with injuries, but the consensus was that he'd compete. Now maybe with Washington and Spence combining for something like 400 snaps as true freshman, he saw his chances slip, but I think the injury made the situation worse, and there's always the chance that he's one of the inevitably existent guys that don't end up buying into Meyer's pretty demanding system.

Hold the phone, and maybe this doesn't apply to you directly, but to the fanbase as an aggregate body:
You're saying that Tressel didn't just fine with second-rate recruiting against UM to draw parallels with Hoke. I get that, it's decent argument.
But then other UM fans will nod knowingly at you point, but turn around and say "Tressel only beat us because he was running a dirty program." I don't like Tressel, so we can have a rational discussion here, but the two can't be in conjunction. If he only won because he was a cheater, then your argument is deflated. If he won because he was a good coach and got the talent he needed despite it not being the best in country, then it's basically tacitly saying that the indescretions of the program didn't affect the product on the field at all

Uhh both teams had their weaknesses. UM struggled with Air Force, a team made up of 5'7'' white boys with a gimmick offense.
Sure, we would lose to Bama. We might lost to ND, though I don't think so. Point is, we beat Nebraska, and we beat UM. Transitively, there's really no argument.

Alquadin Muhammad was a guy that talked about UM and OSU in the past month. Idk if UM would've taken him due to shortage of space, as OSU would've turned him down likely as well, but he was all ND until they told him he hadn't qualified academically.
To anyone that was following the recruitment, he ended up at Miami, who despite being another highly ranked university, is an outlier in the correlation of normal admission standards vs. athletic admission standards.
I think the B1G schools are all about the same for athletes, with ND a step above. Convential wisdom would say UM would be a bit tougher than OSU, but I can't think off the top of my head of anyone in the past 10 years that qualified for one and not the other.

The staff at 11w expected Quick to go to UL. Anything in the forums is inherently biased fanhood, no harm there.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||It was more like cautious||
It was more like cautious optimism, but most people weren't really buying the 50/50 thing. I actually think Shelton Gibson is better as a deep threat, because he's a more physical receiver with comparable speed.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Can't blame him. If UL isn't||
Can't blame him. If UL isn't on the upswing, OSU's chances are great, but I wouldn't turn down my hometown team either in this scenario.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||It's amazing to watch how||
It's amazing to watch how Clowney consistently gets his outside shoulder free around the end, and then hooks his arm over the DE's, so that holding him is the only hope of stopping him. He's a bad man with angry, angry hands.

If you'd kindly point out the point where I claimed to represent the majority..?
Fact is, the OSU network of fans, is one that gained tremendous size and fanaticism, and with that comes an equally tremendous amount of assholes. I hold no contempt for most of the fanbase due simply to a common goal, but believe me, I don't condone a lot of what goes on.
However, I am representative of the group of large but decided minority that holds actual bearing on the institution, and thus, are affected directly on the things that happen within the institution.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||har har, but let me be mainly||
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.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Let me be (inexplicably) the||
Let me be (inexplicably) the only OSU fan that isn't rooting for this kid to be successful. There's a "good luck Terrelle" thread going on at 11w and I'm just incredulous.
Any system that allows people like Jim Tressel and TP to redeem their bad choices with zero accountability, is a flawed one, indeed.

How much PT did Richardson get this year, if any?
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Just out curiosity, how do||
Just out curiosity, how do you feel about the backups? Let's just assume that the 2013 class doesn't bring in any "start immediately" studs (because that's rare).
You've got Hollowell and Richardson, and then Avery and now Norfleet, most notably. If something like this year's events happen, assuming Countess and Taylor are starting, do you feel good about one of those guys stepping up? Obviously it's early to get a feel for how guys are gonna show next year, but I'm just looking to get a feel for the consensus.

Did part of my comment upset you, or was it inaccurate? Feel free to take jabs at our secondary weaknesses, namely our senior CB that routinely falls down in coverage.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||When I see "key defensive||
When I see "key defensive player", I'm thinking Jake Ryan, not the guy WRs lick their chops to match up against.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||I definitely agree that he||
I definitely agree that he has top end speed, comparatively. But when I watch the tape, I don't see "elite" speed. I see a fast kid, but more importantly, I see someone that translates their speed to the football field, which means he has great feet and agility. You guys got yourself a good player.

Isn't Floyd your specialist in getting burned long? I could be thinking of someone else
|26 weeks 3 days ago||We're talking about the same||
We're talking about the same event in which Derrick Green tested a 4.31. There's not OSU-UM recruit bias here on my side, I love Green as a RB, and I wish OSU was still recruiting him. That being said, a 40 time from a guy his size that's almost in the 4.2s is bullshit.

Actually, you're welcome to call our "state" Ohio, as you said, seeing as that is, in fact, the name of the state.

To be fair, he already got a similar bump on 247, so while rivals may be smart to take that path, they wouldn't exactly be hailed as visionaries.

he was RB in the I-form a few times, including getting stuffed, fumbling, and not even trying to block. Borges needed a true running back, and he didn't have one.
