There has been much debate around our AD and his success (or lack-there-of) in fulfilling his job duties. Many strong, passionate sentiments have come forth on the board. While I love a good “back-and-forth” as much as the next person, there does seem to be a large amount of apples vs. oranges, non sequiturs, straw men, and other nonsensical musings. In an effort to add some clarity to things I created the following Venn diagram. As this very lively discussion continues perhaps you will find this tool useful to better organize your thoughts and make your arguments. 

 

 

KEY
A1 - A place everyone agrees does not exist  
A2 - Miami (YTM) circa 1984  
A3 - A place fans fear more than death itself
A4  - Brian’s own personal Hell; why $5 is what you will receive from a scalper in exchange for taking his Horror Part II tickets.
B1 - Boise State
B2 - Exists only in Dave Brandon’s Mind; The reason he hired Lochmann
B3 - Slippery Rock at the Big House
B4 - “I am proud to introduce the next director of athletics for Eastern Michigan University, Mr. Hunter Lochmann”
C1 - Oregon
C2 - Alabama
C3 - Duke vs. Arizona Basketball! Prime-time!! For the championship!!! Of the Preseason NIT
C4 - Michigan Texas
D– “Canhamland”

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State athletics officials said on Monday night that they would not comment on a report that coach Jim Tressel knew that several Ohio State football players were selling memorabilia in April 2010, more than eight months before the university claimed it learned about the issue.

 

The report followed a two-month Yahoo! Sports investigation that looked into what Tressel knew about some of his players selling memorabilia for money and discounted tattoos.

Good thing he still has that whole 'confidential federal information' thing going for him.
