I don't think he's being sarcastic in that he really doesn't think anything was going on. The entire post basically boils down to "I don't know anything special, but like every OSU student, I know football players drive fancy-ass cars." (Plus lots of stuff about how awesome the Indy 500 is.)

I'd say he's being irreverent, not sarcastic.

Titus's article bounces back and forth more than Richard Simmons on amphetamines, but the thesis that the Deelz-On-Wheelz® scandal has the potential to eclipse the Tatts-For-Toys® scandal seems spot on.

I never read any of his stuff as he blew up since Simmons' pimped him.

But I like Titus' writing.  Very similar to my style.  Sometimes the flow gets caught up in the story telling.  But he's funny (man it pains me to say that about a Buckeye), and his stuff is pretty easy to read. 

I think anyone that bags on the kid for this article is either wearing their Maize colored glasses or is a total prick who is overly full of him/herself.

I don't care where he went to school, that is some funny stuff.

If you look at the comments under his post, it looks like he already ruffled a few feathers.

At least he admits he was skeptical about the cars the football players were driving. I appreciate hearing this much more than the usual "DENY DENY DENY DENY" I hear from OSU supporters here in Cleveland.

are truly priceless. I love the guy that "gratuated" (wrote it at least twice that way) in the Top 10% of his class at osu.

As amusing as it was, there is no way that the comments by 'the gratuate' was written seriously.  I highly suspect that its author may in fact be an mgoblogger.  And if so, I applaud that author.

 

Funny stuff.

The grammar in this comment goes to show you just how valuable a degree is from osu:

Im an proud graduate(1999) of The Ohio State University and I must say I don't agree the NCAA will find anything out. So a few player's got discounts on cars? While, alot of people get discounts on cars. So what. You should be proud of the University you gratuated from and not be so sarcastic on them. I love The Ohio State University and I would never say anything remotly bad about my University. I hope you will consider doing the same thing. Us gratuates have to stick together. Alot of other programs look the other way when things like this happen so its not like we are any diffrently then other programs it just so happens we got caught with are pants down so to speak. I will always be proud of my acomplishments at OSU(gratuated top 10% of my class) and I hope you always will to. In brotherhood, Lee Kuhlman

when I was on my basketball scholarship for my first two years at Ohio State, I was only given $1,100 a month. That might sound like a lot of money at first thought, but you have to realize that these checks had to cover the monthly cost of rent, utilities, food, gas, entertainment, tattoos, trips to the strip club, bottles off the top shelf, weed, hookers, blow, and – on top of all of that – child support

Too funny

Here is the one I feel to be the most eloquent:

 

you don't know Jack - Sh!T .....keep your mouth shut and put your a$$ back on the bench..... If you don't know .....keep you punk mouth shut.

It sounds like denial is still in fashion among many TSIO fans.

I can personally attest to seeing Jamaal Berry and Boom Herron driving ABE Dodge Avengers (not sure where Titus got Chargers, they're Avengers) around campus. I don't know if they paid for them, but my best friend in high school had the exact same car and his family wasn't exactly the richest, so it's possible that they can afford the cars, but it's also possible they were given discounts.

His blogs are generally funny and truthful. Many of his big ten oponents and some coaches read them while he played.....

That being said, it will be a slap in the face of college football as an amature sport if no more sanctions come of this.
