No. He is right. That’s why we have juries in this country and not distraught family members handing out death penalties for everything. They can’t be expected to judge evidence with impartiality. 

08/15/2018 - 6:41am Man you are obtuse. The…

Man you are obtuse. The point isn’t who ran the promotion, though if it were the program then it would have been objectively worse. The point is the fact that the promotion was even needed to get some people tonthe game made the program disappointing.

 

08/14/2018 - 1:21pm Prepare to be disappointed…

Prepare to be disappointed. He’s not going anywhere.

See post three down from here. 

08/14/2018 - 9:00am I think you’re wrong about…

I think you’re wrong about the egg on the face. It simply won’t be heavily covered with Durkin’s firing simply because of why. A kid died and it’s because of him. It’s OSU luck (in a sick sort of way, I know, but you get my point) that they will be overshadowed. Announcing Meyer stays in the same day Durkin is fired would provide maximum shield from media coverage. That’s how they roll, and they’re very good at it. 

08/14/2018 - 8:32am Well with the media now…

Well with the media now focused on Maryland, wait for Ohio State to announce that Meyer is reinstated the same day Durkin is fired. Sweep it under the news cycle. 

08/13/2018 - 10:15am No. It actually doesn’t mean…

No. It actually doesn’t mean that. Not even a little bit. Read a linguistics book. 

08/13/2018 - 9:37am Agreed. It’s the only thing…

Agreed. It’s the only thing worse than “urbs”. 

08/13/2018 - 8:31am He’ll be reinstated on…

He’ll be reinstated on Wednesday. I’m firmly, though reluctantly, in the “he’ll be back” camp. 

08/10/2018 - 2:19pm Yes. I’ve had both and they…

Yes. I’ve had both and they are both very good. I have decided youtube tv is best for me because it offers streaming for all locals, and psvue did not. I did like PSvue and I would recommend it as a quality service. I don’t think you can go wrong with either one. Just try out both and figure out which one works best for you. 

08/09/2018 - 8:31pm Come on. This can’t be for…

Come on. This can’t be for real. I knew gene smith was an idiot but really?  C’MON MAN!

08/08/2018 - 10:35pm Da fuq did I just read?

Da fuq did I just read?

08/08/2018 - 6:40pm Link doesn’t work, of course…

Link doesn’t work, of course. But, even without reading it, unless this implicates that Urban knew the extent of things then it doesn’t matter insofar as Urban’s fate is concerned. Smith has already been fired, so anything on how horrific he was don’t matter anymore except to further show what a horrible person he is. 

08/08/2018 - 5:04pm I will say that I’m kinda…

I will say that I’m kinda surprised we haven’t heard any leaks. There are interns and secretaries and the like that I’m sure they’ve heard something they’re “not supposed to hear” and no one has mentioned it to a reporter. I have a hard time understanding how they’re keeping such a tight lid on this. 

08/08/2018 - 4:54pm 100%. I agree and am also…

100%. I agree and am also not able to tell. 

08/08/2018 - 10:45am I agree to a point. I am…

I agree to a point. I am just a grunt engineer at my company. No one knows who I am in regards to who I work for. The same can’t be said for the face of a big time college football program. Standards are different for the different positions, and they should be. The public doesn’t identify me with my employer...but Head football coaches are identified with their universities. Their standards should be different 

08/08/2018 - 10:25am I don’t think McMurphy has…

I don’t think McMurphy has anything else. Even if he does, I think whatever he does have only pertains to Zach Smith. In other words, any info he has wouldn’t hurt Urban any more than it already has. 

08/07/2018 - 4:20pm Yup! Arrived here in SC too!

Yup! Arrived here in SC too!

08/07/2018 - 9:43am 100% this is the ideal…

100% this is the ideal scenario for me. It causes maximum damage and exposes them for the idiots they are. 

08/07/2018 - 9:34am There are a few things here:…

There are a few things here: one,It suggests that Meyer may have never reported it. Two, it suggests  that, if he did report, the university did not investigate.  Three,  if the university did investigate, they did not do a very good job. 

 However, there is the possibility that Meyer reported it And that the university went off of police reports. It is possible that they did not need to contact her. 

There is also the possibility that none of this matters. With that ruling in Colorado that title nine does not apply to incidents that involve those not associated with the University then it may not matter. While I do believe that  title IX  does cover this specific issue, it is far from 100% settled  whether that is correct.  

 

08/06/2018 - 7:45pm I’m in agreement with most…

I’m in agreement with most here. Shea, tackles, and safeties. One thing to remember though: with Don Brown’s defense designed the way it is, there will be a safety bust now and again. It’s just how it’s goinf to be because no one is perfect. Now as long as that is limited to something like a 30-Yd gain instead of a 60-yard TD bomb then we should be ok. 

08/06/2018 - 1:02pm Your analysis is correct as…

Your analysis is correct as to the Original intent of title IX. However, like most governmental items, it has been wildly expanded to include rules and regulations WAY beyond the original scope. Some are good, some are a bit silly. 

08/06/2018 - 12:27pm  I think the idea is that…

 I think the idea is that people are already going to be paying for Internet anyway. For example, where I am, there is only one speed, 100 MB per second. But that speed, I can stream anything I want. I would already be paying for Internet anyway, so that is not factored into the cost of cutting the cord. 

08/06/2018 - 9:56am Game will be on NBC. It is…

Game will be on NBC. It is not the same as NBC sports. They are two different stations, very much like FOX and FS1 are different stations. 

08/06/2018 - 9:21am Co-signed. I did the same…

Co-signed. I did the same thing for similar reasons. YouTube TV offers almost exactly the same channels plus all the locals for $5 cheaper. 

Youtube TV is best followed closely with PSVue. Both have BTN, so you’re good there. 

08/06/2018 - 7:53am I love UMBig11 as much as…

I love UMBig11 as much as anyone else on here, but it’s not like he has insider access to Ohio State on this matter. He only knows what Michigan would do given a similar scenario and maybe a couple of details surrounding the story. Sure, umbig probably has a little more info on which to base his Opinion, but in the end he can’t be expected to speak with knowledge of the inner workings of another program. 

I value umbig opinion and take it in high regard...just only slightly more than any of us on this particular matter.

that said, I do believe it’s possible for him to hear from counterparts in another program (OSU in this case of course). But I’m betting they’re being tight lipped around there right now.  

 

 

08/06/2018 - 6:47am Didn’t read any further than…

Didn’t read any further than “the kids are the real victims”.  What the fuck?  A woman was beaten, repeatedly, and everyone around her failed to do the right thing. Go to hell, you sick and twisted mother fucker. 

08/04/2018 - 6:22pm Yeah...good idea. Threaten…

Yeah...good idea. Threaten the person who’s already outed you to be a violent person. Zach should be in jail. What a scumbag. 

08/04/2018 - 6:17pm Why? Meyer claims he filed…

Why? Meyer claims he filed the proper report. Why shouldn’t somebody check that claim through FOIA? Seems perfectly legit and reasonable. 

08/03/2018 - 9:52pm Another lie by smith and…

Another lie by smith and smith only, who was fired. It shows he’s a liar and a slime ball. This just doesn’t move the needle for me any more than it already was. All this does is prove Zach lied on SC today, which duh. In my opinion this doesn’t hurt Meyer or GS any worse. It only proves Zach is a liar and, in a way, helps Meyer. It shows he was lied to by Zach all along and gives Meyer cover to say “see, he’s a liar. He lied to me and everyone else here at OSU. So we couldn’t have known.”

08/03/2018 - 8:44pm I’m trying to understand how…

I’m trying to understand how this hurts Meyer or gene. All this proves is Zach was lying, which we already knew. I would think it reasonable that he lied to Meyer and The AD when asked. I just don’t see how this makes it any worse for those still employed. Just because it turns out Zach was guilty of DV, Meyer or Gene would’ve had to have known for it to hurt them, and this just doesn’t prove that...at least insofar as I can tell. 

08/03/2018 - 4:40pm Welp that’s that. He will…

Welp that’s that. He will return to his post. Raback it. 

08/03/2018 - 3:08pm Because duh, of course. The…

Because duh, of course. The choice is obvious. Whether he’ll do it is something different. If urban does get fired I guarantee it’s him because OSU is never going to have to wander in the wilderness like literally every other program has had to do. It’s sickening

We’ll see i Guess. But, as I mentioned in another thread, OSU first fall camp practice was moved up from 3:30pm to 9:30 am. Could that be the reason?  It seems at least plausible. Only time will tell. 

08/03/2018 - 11:07am Because they will. Bank on…

Because they will. Bank on it and be happy if they don’t. 

08/03/2018 - 10:41am Not sure how to post yet…

Not sure how to post yet....I’ll put this here for those who may like to know. 

Ohio State moved up their first fall camp practice today from the originally scheduled 3:30pm to 9:30am. I have to believe this is not coincidental. It is obviously pure speculation, but why would you do that last minute unless you needed that 3:30 time slot for something else. It seems like a decent possibility that those who have “heard through the grapevine “ so to speak that a press conference regarding Meyers fate will be this afternoon had legs. (Yes this could be coincidental, but it certainly gives the speculation legs)

08/03/2018 - 8:08am Yes. It’s not hard. He lied…

Yes. It’s not hard. He lied about what he knew and when regarding domestic abuse. We know this because it has been proven his wife knew and he publicly said he and his wife share everything. Even if he hadn’t said that, it is surely proof beyond REASONABLE doubt (no, it’s not beyond a shadow of a doubt, as there rarely is the “smoking gun” in any case like this) that he knew, then lied about it at media days. It’s enough to trigger whatever clause it is that talks about holding up a moral code or human decency. I don’t remember the language, but it’s in there. 

It’s not an ad hominem attack. He’s in a position that requires honesty when asked publicly. I understand the article is about title IX, but it turns out it doesn’t apply nor does it matter. 

08/02/2018 - 10:02pm Forget title IX. Not sure if…

Forget title IX. Not sure if it applies or not and it doesn’t matter. It’s the fact that he definitely knew and, when asked publicly, lied about it. He should be done. Period. 

08/02/2018 - 8:00pm 11W is focusing on the fact…

11W is focusing on the fact that he had no direct evidence that specifically shows Urban definitively knew. 

Hanging by a thread over there, and the going wisdom is that he’ll be suspended 3-4 games. 

08/02/2018 - 7:24pm So shea can’t complete a…

So shea can’t complete a pass to Oliver Martin. At least not without a penalty. 

08/02/2018 - 12:19pm He’s gone. You can bet on…

He’s gone. You can bet on that. But they won’t do it until they’ve negotiated Meyers exit so they won’t get sued.

Also, look for a 2011 repeat, but rest assured 2012 will also be repeated (stoops). OSU will never experience a downturn for more than one year.  Of that I am thoroughly convinced. 

08/02/2018 - 11:45am The only real question is:…

The only real question is: Which elite coach will fall into their lap this time?  I’m going with Stoops. It’s too perfect. Ohio State will always have all of the nice things. 

08/02/2018 - 10:05am Meyer is easy to replace…

Meyer is easy to replace. Once again, an elite coach happens to be taking time off when OSU is in the midst of a scandal. And once again that coach has strong ties to Ohio. Stoops will suddenly feel like coaching again and OSU will barely see a blip. It’s sickening how lucky you can get with these things. I have no words for it and am convinced Stoops will take the job with ne’re a bump as OSU keeps it rolling. 

07/25/2018 - 11:38am What a douchebag. Self…

What a douchebag. Self preservation is a VERY strong motive, but what is to gain here? Smith’s not even that great of a coach. Was he a great recruiter? What am I missing? 

07/23/2018 - 9:10am +1, extremely underrated. 

+1, extremely underrated. 

This is an A+ response. Well done. 

07/21/2018 - 9:04pm What the hell kind of…

What the hell kind of standard is that? So he could win 5 tournaments and win the fedex cup and you’d still call him ahas been if none of them were majors? I don’t know how describe that level of stupidity. 

07/21/2018 - 8:23pm You’re welcome. You deserved…

You’re welcome. You deserved it. You constantly say tiger is a has been with your criteria of “he hasn’t won recently” and to “take emotion out of it”. Fine. For comparison, tony finau, currently 10th in fedex cup, has 17/20 (85%) cuts, 13 top 25s (65%), 6 top tens (30%) including a 2nd, no wins. Tiger hasn’t played as many events and is thus further down rankings, but has made 9/11 (81%) cuts, 7 top 25s (64%) and 3 top 10s (27%) including a 2nd. Very comparable. Also keep in mind, if he finishes top 5 tomorrow (very likely) he gets inside top 50 in the world in just 12 tournaments played and qualifies for firestone. He will likely finish top 25 in world and fedex cup before the Season is over.

My question is: what would be your requirement to no longer consider him a has been? You seem to have this label permanently affixed to him. 

07/21/2018 - 6:59pm You really are an…

You really are an insufferable ass of a tiger hater. Are you still trying to convince yourself that Tiger is terrible? You realize it’s likely that after this tournament he climbs into the top 50 in the World Golf Rankings?
