08/13/2018 - 11:11am Was he? I was honestly…

Was he? I was honestly confused about that. I'm sure there are some people who would like the idea and others who would consider them a way to start a fight. I don't know enough about her thoughts on how to run a country that it meant anything to me.

08/13/2018 - 11:06am No. I don't think there's a…

No. I don't think there's a politician from either side of the aisle who can do these things. They're to beholden to special interest groups to do any good for the country. 

08/13/2018 - 10:35am I was going someone had…

I was going someone had asked that. I'd like a qualified president who is interested in fixing the country rather than getting reelected next time. Someone to figure out how to lower the debt while rebuilding infrastructure. Probably  at the expensive of both social entitlement and defense spending.

Was just going to say maybe we need more Wolverine devotee if you've been around less and the comments are down. But smaller sample sizes not really something to draw conclusions from because there are too many variables.

RoJo coming back to haunt us again?

Highlight videos play fine on mine. Get a different phone? Width is jacked, however.

That's not too much texture?

I'm not sure what you mean. This have something to do with music?

08/07/2018 - 4:28pm And it was when the info on…

And it was when the info on public that the assistant was fired. What are the Optics on that?

08/07/2018 - 3:11pm exactly. This was the worst…

exactly. This was the worst way they could have done it. Now they're open to a lawsuit about having hired him in the first place, having fired him, having continue to employ him, from the ex-wife about Sheltering him and pressuring her, and from Urban if he gets fired.all because this was known about it.

08/07/2018 - 11:16am Yes. I'm right there with…

Yes. I'm right there with you. I wasn't expecting a whole lot out of his tape. It looks pretty good. Excellent at catching the ball. Not sure about explosiveness from the tape, but a 40" vertical says there should be something there. 

08/07/2018 - 10:32am Legally, for the risk of…

Legally, for the risk of getting sued, it was the wrong thing to do. The optics on the way he was fired are terrible. It's admitting they never should have hired/extended him in the first place if they thought he did anything wrong.

It was the right thing to do morally.

 

08/07/2018 - 10:30am That's the guy.

That's the guy. He worked with Sandusky every day for years.

08/07/2018 - 10:29am They're OK with it because…

They're OK with it because he wins. Guy who organized the rally was on the radio talking about what a great guy Urban is and how he hasn't done anything wrong. First he said he knows Urban personally. Then he recanted and said he met him. Then he said he goes to practices. But he still knows Urban's a great guy who wins a lot of games. 


Not joking. That guy came off the the biggest homer ever and was unable to address the actual issues other than that Urban needs support in all this.

08/07/2018 - 10:25am OSU might say they don't…

OSU might say they don't. But obviously Urban didn't get that memo. He got the lip service down right. But he employed a guy who was a known perpetrator of domestic violence for 9 years. According to Urban, he let Gene Smith know 3 years ago and the abuser got his contract renewed and received raises. That kinda sounds like condoning DV if it means more wins.

 

08/07/2018 - 10:21am Are you aware Hernandez shot…

Seriously?

Are you aware Hernandez shot someone in the head while he was at Florida and was never suspended or had any discipline? The investigation didn't go anywhere even though it made the news at the time.

A Michigan receiver groped a girl outside a bar and was suspended for most of a year. When the allegations against Hernandez came out when he was with the Patriots, he was immedieately suspended. Urban in his role as GM of a college team never punished a player when they were needed to help the team win. Not if he could help it. 

 

08/07/2018 - 10:18am He knew Smith was a woman…

He knew Smith was a woman beater in 2009. He fired him for being a woman beater in 2018 after the national media found out. Is there anything wrong with this scenario?

 

08/07/2018 - 10:10am Right. It's not all of the…

Right. It's not all of the women on campus. It's just the ones who might be on campus alone at night. Or at a party where there are athletes from the money teams. Or popular athletes in general. Or people important to the university. 

 

I think all these universities have made it clear whether it's more important to protect players and coaches who win games or the women they have beaten and raped. I don't believe that's overstating the matter. If you do,  you need to find some perspective.

 

08/07/2018 - 10:05am I live in Columbus and haven…

I live in Columbus and haven't heard anyone saying they think there should be any discipline for anyone in this situation other than Smith and he already got fired. The first thing everyone I've talked to who is willing to admit any knowledge is to attack Harbaugh specifically and everyone else in any position of power as being evil people as well so what does it matter. Urban's just a great guy who got caught in a bad situation. I mean it's not like he even really did anything wrong. Right? I mean he didn't do anything wrong at Florida. It's not like he even knew who Aaron Hernandez was. 

 

08/07/2018 - 10:01am Michigan fired a guy who had…

Michigan fired a guy who had the potential to be their best coach since Yost for being drunk at a restauraunt. OSU hired and will keep a guy who drove one program into the ground by filling it up with thugs and felons and has harbored a wife beater and lying about it. It seems the worst thing OSU could have done was fire Smith when they did. When they did that they basically said they knew he was a POS and never should have been hired and sheltered in the first place. Now they're open to lawsuits by the POS for being fired inappropriately, his ex for her being pressured into not pressing charges, and Urban if they actually do the right thing and get rid of him.

And the other awesome thing is they have a guy who probably helped shelter a child rapist for years on staff in addition to a guy who was fired with cause for abusing his players at yet another school.

I read some of that article. I can't believe the BOT wants to judge the truthfulness of the Freeh report. What makes them more competent in an investigation than investigators?

With you tube you can keep everything forever.

08/06/2018 - 9:18am I've found that we don't…

I've found that we don't care about channels we no longer get. We just watch less tv. Give YouTube tv a shot. It's free for a week. You may find you're fine with it. 

08/04/2018 - 8:24am I was at work yesterday at…

I was at work yesterday at Riverside Hospital and the subject came up. there was only one Ohio State fan who had anything to say anything and that was absolute defense of Urban Meyer that everybody in power is evil and urban is no worse than absolutely everyone else who has any authority over anybody else. He was willing to admit that Urban was a slimy, low morals, when at all cost coach going back to his time at Florida, but he never actually admitted Urban did anything wrong here and was adamant that he was no worse than anybody else.

 

the only people that spoke up and said Urban was obviously in the wrong significantly on this where non Ohio State fans. Not that they were necessarily anti Ohio State, they just weren't fans. 

08/02/2018 - 3:06pm I was impressed with your…

I was impressed with your reasoning until this. You don't believe Urban can fire an assistant for beating his wife when he's telling his players to treat women with respect? It's most likely at this point that Urban saw the pictures, knew about the abuse, knew about the divorce, the court trials and still kept this ass on staff despite his"zero tolerance" of domestic abuse stance as presented to the players. Supposedly he knew about it on 2009. And 11. And 15. And lied about it. And would have kept lying until he went to his grave if he hadn't been caught.

08/02/2018 - 1:35pm I have no problems with…

I have no problems with sexual expoits of a bunch of bands members. Unless someone who didn't want to do do was being exploited. I don't know the specifics.

08/02/2018 - 9:44am Yeah, but...

The police…

Yeah, but...

The police were already involved. This is about continuing to employ a wife beater, not whether or not any of this had been reported. She had no influence over his employment. And the police already knew. So...

Only if they're coming from an area to dry or poor to support the cattle nicely.

He runs 200s and 400s and a few 100s. It would be nice to see him running more shorter races and training short distance speed. But he still looks like a good one.

Offensive line? Pretty much the whole thing?

I was there too. West side of the stadium. Not sure what section. It was bitter. My wife wasn't dressed for it. I had a bunch of hunting clothes on.

Exactly. The ball has to get to the receiver. Not 5 yards Beyond

Wait. They put a tourniquet on you for hip surgery? Srsly?

Ok?

To decrease the level of doping in the sport they had to get rid of some of the cyclists. Fewer cyclists = less doping.

07/16/2018 - 9:47am I have to agree that the…

I have to agree that the idea that they are some terribly exploited group with no return for their effort is ridiculous. I read an article that said the services the average power 5 program providers would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. They aren't getting paid, but their experience of college isn't exactly like everyone else's. That said, I do think pooled endorsements are a good idea.

07/12/2018 - 7:55pm Yes. like was said in the…

Yes. like was said in the article last week, Hinton didn't Camp so he fell. Him working on playing football instead of showing off means he's not as good

07/11/2018 - 3:19pm He was an astounding leader…

He was an astounding leader. He did amazing things considering the state Germany was in after WWI. It's just that he was a complete psychopath as well and the world would have done much better without him. 

07/07/2018 - 8:49am Hate there's no edit. He…

Hate there's no edit. He even specifically said that because Hinton won't camp he most likely won't move up, even if senior film shows improvement. That's not all on him, i do think his writing is fair and impartial, but as we know sites want to use their camps for evaluation but Not Camping: Won't Move Up is a poor POV.

Caveat is that he's pretty highly rated to begin with.

07/07/2018 - 8:38am Jones was one of my points,…

Jones was one of my points, I believe. Too much talent around him for him to move up. Someone else going to IMG? Going to move up.

07/07/2018 - 7:52am Good post. But after reading…

Good post. But after reading it you can get an idea what kind of sham these sites have become. It was stated that one guy isn't going to camp so he's not going to be reevaluated. One guy who won't camp will be. One guy will move up because he's going to play for IMG. One guy won't move up because there's too much talent around him. Consistency? Naw, we don't need that.

07/02/2018 - 5:05pm I wonder if lower rated guys…

I wonder if lower rated guys actually feel the heat to commit if they see a class filling up. Hannah had picked up some great guys the last couple weeks. And tons of depth. Anyone know what expected class size is off hand?

07/02/2018 - 4:47pm Sounds like what Ann arbor…

Sounds like what Ann arbor should do is do away with residential property tax and go all business property tax and income tax. Apartments would get tax to high heaven and people living in house wouldn't have to pay for all the services for people living in apartments. Shorfall would be made up by a 4% City income tax. Maybe more. 

07/02/2018 - 12:00pm Yeah I don't see the straw…

Yeah I don't see the straw man argument anywhere in there. It's just a partially well-formulated comment and partially trash. It does not seem to bring in and outside aspect  contrary to the post that it replies to.

07/02/2018 - 11:54am I understand a straw man…

I understand a straw man argument. My point was that looked like a quote due to the italics. Unless that was supposed to be sarcasm font. Unfortunately, I have no problem believing someone would actually say that and hope to be taken seriously.

07/02/2018 - 11:47am So your response to a shitty…

So your response to a shitty comment is another? I don't get the feeling of sarcasm here because of your time in the first part. If you're going to chastise, stay above, don't sink below.
