A Collection of OSU Public Records Requests

While reporters from around the state and country were bombarding Ohio State with FOI requests related to Tressel, Doug Archie, Gene Smith, Edward Rife, tattoos, cars, tickets and everything else under the sun, Deadspin was getting meta and filing requests asking for the public records requests that other reporters had filed.

What follows is the correspondence between Ohio State and several press outlets. It ranges from the super-polite Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer to ESPN who came with the "we know you have 10 days to fulfill this request, but could you please hook us up in five so we can get the dirt into our latest issue, a hit piece on your school?"
