Spit on the ground and cross yourself and maybe throw some salt over your shoulder when you utter the words "if Shea goes down..."

So apparently President Drake isn't in charge...  I had a 5 minute happy period thinking that they were doing an actual, thorough investigation.  I don't know how we can take any investigation seriously that announces how long it will take ahead of time.  Thorough investigations take the time they take.  

If they didn't take time to turn over every stone, this could come back to haunt them.  But then, I was shocked they hired him in the first place.

True.  But he had to know Meyer's reputation before he took the job.

Or did he perceive that the ship was going down and he jumped aboard a life boat?  Of course, his perception might not be correct and  maybe he abandoned prematurely...

But if he really hit her, it doesn't matter whether she's "crazy."  (or a drunk or a druggie...)  That's victim blaming 101.

Drake was hired to take OSU into the serious academic/research university direction.  I assume some of the board and major donors also want to see this happen.  If it's at all a close call, it will be curious to see which side wins.

I agree. You honor your friend by honoring his wishes.  He said no to a visit.  You can attend whatever funeral/memorial he might have and that might be comforting to his family.  You can also do something to help eliminate this scourge.  Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is a great start.

Sorry for impending loss.

If only he had made the guys stretch too much, it all might have gone down differently.

Other than last year (and most of the previous 10...) why?  I didn't hear anything that made me MORE worried about  the OL.

I love listening to Zordich.  Not only can he not keep secrets, he sounds like the happiest guy on the planet.  Everyday is Christmas for this guy.

This isn't over.  It'll never be over.

I would probably lose my job if I got a DUI even though driving isn't a part of my job description.  I have a morality clause, but then I have a position of influence involving young people, whereas Zach...oh, oops.

not going to end well...for our opponents.

I still don't have the ability to up/down vote (I think most people don't... maybe...not sure?)  Multiple downvotes is a BIG hint that the rest of the board is tired of certain people and calls attention to it. Otherwise hgb4529, woody2, scioto and a few others would be deep into negative point territory.

08/14/2018 - 6:03pm Me too. 

Me too.

Speaking to an ND fan, they hate Sparty way worse than they hate us.  Not sure why.

And I've seen games where we looked like NC contenders, then struggled against the likes of the Akron Zips the next week.  Really, anything can happen.

My lack of "thumbs" is really bothering me now....

I've lived in Ohio for 25 years.  The academic reputation of OSU has increased a lot in the last 25 years to the point where (gulp!) it is actually a fine university.  Its reputation as a football powerhouse dwarfs its academic reputation but they have worked really hard to improve that as well.  Hiring Drake was a important part of that strategy.  They are really stuck between a rock and a hard place-- their reputation takes a hit if they keep him, but (potentially) their football team suffers if they don't.  IMO they are probably better off in the LONG run to fire him, take the high ground and get another very good coach.  I'm not confident they do that, though.  I do think if they don't fire him, Dr. Drake moves on at his first opportunity.

08/12/2018 - 7:54pm Sounds about right.

Sounds about right.

I agree with that assessment.  I also think he knew he had a very young team, with the possibility that he knew he was being filmed as well.  I did note quite a few opposing coaches acting quite "lively" with no repercussions..

I've been thinking that scUM is a perfect name for Urban Meyer

I'm in my 50s and I've been thinking for the past several years, "I'm not getting any younger, tick, tick, tick.  Time to get it done!"

Of course it's fake.  Everyone knows it's the recruiting director that throws the bags of cash-- never the AD!

The thing about the Brady Hoke hire-- it was his dream job and to give it to him when he wasn't ready is as good a way of smashing someone's dreams as to never give it to him.  People get hurt when poor decisions are made.

Indiana's abusive coach was then hired by OSU.  So it goes...

My SIL is a Cleveland sports fan, so I'd like to see the Browns win a few for him.  Might make up for LeBron's exit.

Congrats!  We just had our first grandson in May.(After raising three girls!) Can't wait to take him to the Big House for his first game!

08/09/2018 - 7:35pm What would they need to…

What would they need to discuss with Zach Smith?  Do they need to hear his denials first hand?  Nothing he has to say has much bearing on Urban Meyer's situation. As for Zach Smith's assertion that he is going to "take down the University" that could either be true or it could be the delusional statement of a blowhard bully.  Coin flip as to which one.

I imagine if he is fired, they'll replace him on the CFP committee.  But I'm just guessing of course.

I say it's all or nothing.  He either gets canned or he gets scott free.

Well, there IS an OSU campus in Lima.  Coincidence?  I think not!

I knew Urban Meyer wasn't a good guy when OSU hired him-- I was actually a little surprised that they did.  So yes, it sticks in my craw a bit to see him so successful.  So maybe we're hoping for a little karma or universal justice here.  Maybe we'd like "what goes around comes around" to be true.

08/06/2018 - 10:38am If they keep him, this will…

If they keep him, this will be a distraction for a lot longer than if they cut ties.  From that stand point, either way is fine.  From a "doing the right thing" stand point, he needs to go.

You've never been out of Ohio, have you?

Also, does anyone know how to get to our account information?  My avatar disappeared during the switch-- I'd like to go back and add it again.

I'm jealous of the thumbs up and down buttons, I haven't had them since the switch.
