SLOW UR ROLL, EVAN

Ohio State wide receiver Evan Spencer, son of former Buckeye great Tim Spencer, is a Buckeye through and through. Maybe too much Buckeye, in fact.

Love the confidence, kid, but slow that roll a little.


UPDATE 11/11 4:01 p.m.

Spencer did bracket his quote with caveats about his "bias" but the full quote did not surface until will after the storm had formed. Here's Spencer's full quote for context:

“Well I guess I’m a little biased, but I think we’d wipe the field with both of them. But that’s just my bias speaking.”


UPDATE 11/11 8:31 p.m.

Spencer and Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig and made the following statements via Twitter:

Don't get me wrong, I love the "No Fear" attitude. But like I told my sister when she told an inside joke, "That's an inside joke...keep it inside."
Keep it inside the locker-room Evan.

Totally agree 1004.  First of all let your actions do your talking.  This is juvenile at best.  If he was playing for AACC, or any other team, we would be camped out up this guys butt.  Confidence is one thing, but disrespecting the reigning MNC team is stupid.  Win your games and keep your trap shut.

We need to change the media narrative. Right now it's all "OSU has a weak schedule because the B1G is down right now" and we need it to be "Why not give the Buckeyes a shot" even if they do it to shut us up, we need to get a shot. These things need to be said, blown out of proportion on ESPN for a few weeks, asked at every press conference, have Urban on during GameDay to address these issues and get it out there. We need the positive exposure.

Doesn't Coach Meyer have a tweeting rule? 
If yes, the lack of discipline bothers me way more than anything he said.
If there's no tweeting ban, I still would have expected more discretion.  It's not "bulletin board" material, YET, since we're on the outside looking in.  That was the point of the tweet, probably.  But, if things go our way and we get into the MNC, this tweet could motivate our opponent more than unify the Bucks.  I just wonder why he felt it necessary to blast this out.  Who needs it?

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

Exactly. It looks like he responded to someone who asked him how he thought the Buckeyes would fare against Alabama & FSU.
If you asked players on FSU or Alabama the same question in regards to their chances against Ohio State most of them would respond in similar fashion (that they would wipe the floor with the Buckeyes).
The question is, what were the circumstances surrounding the conversation?

Whoa Nellie's picture

Ah, thanks.  My misunderstanding.

“Don’t fear criticism. The stands are full of critics. They play no ball. They fight no fights. They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing. Down on the field are the doers, they make mistakes because they attempt many things.”

Whoa Nellie's picture

Having now heard the interview, seeing that the original reporting of it misquoted Evan, inserted FSU into his statement, and omitted his qualifying language as to his "bias", my opinion about the statement has changed.  I also agree that a little politicking right now can't hurt.  They already hate us, so what do we have to lose?

Nah. If he says I think we can hang with or even beat Alabama and FSU, then it's a non-story. It's the "wipe the floor" part that makes this a story.

The media controls what they report. University Presidents often say controversial or borderline things during fund raiders & similar events, yet only those by President Gee were consistently discussed by the media.

It's only been like two hours, time will tell if we get a story from it but if we do, I'll be sure to post it here so you know about it. 
 
I won't get into the whole Gee issue but you really think this 11w fault or do you think they are making a story out of something that's not that big? Regardless of what you think, Evan is accountable for what comes out of his mouth on Media Mondays. Where do you stand with his accountability in all of this?

I mentioned 11W specifically because they were the only one who had printed an actual story on it (not counting tweets) at the time. It wasn't meant as an indictment of 11W.
It's definitely much adieu about nothing IMO. As I'm sure you're following the story now (hell we both are just because of this exchange) it's becoming apparent that it wasn't just a case of Evan running off at the mouth. The full quote  "Well I guess I’m a little biased, but I think we’d wipe the field with both of them, but that’s just my bias speaking.", and the all important context (he said it jokingly) are just now making the rounds.
This is actually an illustrative anecdote about the state of journalism today. There is such a rush to get on top of 'the story' that the important details are too often left out.

Lets be honest...these kids watch tv. They get on the internet. And theyve seen and heard all the negativity and doubt surrounding what they've accomplished. The media can go on about how our team isn't in the same class as bama and fsu, and don't deserve a shot to prove them wrong. Why can't he say the opposite? I'm sure it was taken out of context...what was the question that was asked to elicit this response? Sure, there's better ways to say it to avoid the inevitibale hand wringing and pish poshing of his statement. He's just confident in what him and his team can do if given the chance. Whats wrong with that?

Why does this matter so much? The kid is confident, and has every right to be. The team is 21-0 under Meyer. And if a team needs 'bulletin board material' to get hyped for the title game, you have issues.

I try to hide the fact that I am a capatain on the Grammer Police, but it bothers me more that 2 people BOTH have direct quotes from Evan and they aren't the same thing.  First dude said wipe the floor, SportsCenter says wipe the field. 
That bothers me more than what Evan actually said.  The sad decline of media integrity (11W excluded)...

They'll need to play in that weather in the pro's and we play in it all the time so I don't know why it's so unheard of... more and more teams are playing later games out of conference.

I'd prefer that he hadn't said it, but who cares.  It'd be worse if he said it about one of the remaining teams on our schedule.  Then it would actually be bulletin board material.  Right now, Bama and FSU are probably thinking about each other since everyone else in the media is.  They aren't worried about us.  That's how I like it.  Besides, what's worse, this or the "didn't come here to play school" tweet?

Isn't this the exact same argument Jesse Palmer made about "Stanford football". Yet somehow that wasn't scoffed at by the national media. 
 

avail31678's picture

But Jesse Palmer didn't say Standord would "wipe the field" with anyone.

Brutus's picture

Not sure if you're joking.  What I mean is that the point of Spencer's quote is that when Ohio State is playing up to it's potential, he doesn't think anyone can beat them.  Palmer was saying the same thing about "Stanford football".

avail31678's picture

Nope not joking.  What I'm saying is- yes, they both said similar things in that when OSU/Stanford are playing to their potential they can hang with anyone etc.  However, Spencer ALSO said the "wipe the field thing."  So you can't really make the comparison and say Spencer deserves no attention/backlash if Palmer didn't get any, because Spencer said more than Palmer.

As BAMAMIKE pointed out in the forum, here's a follow-up tweet and a little context:

I'm a little disappointed in 11W's coverage of this, to be quite honest.

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

11W may have been a little quick on the draw (IMO) responding to a tweet but I think we should all slow down a bit before making up our minds on the coverage of an event that is only a few hours old.
Does 11W have a staff member present at the pressers?
 

Jason Priestas's picture

Ginn should have done a better job with his quote of Spencer that set off the firestorm. It may also help for you to understand that our job is not to be cheerleaders for this program. It never will be.

SilverState's picture

By coverage, I just meant lack of context because this is definitely a story. Totally agree on Ginn and the role 11W plays. 

Jason Priestas's picture

Yeah, in hindsight, I absolutely wish we had the full context of the quote at the time this thing blew up. I still believe it's a story b/c of the "wiping the field" portion of the quote, but the admission of bias softens it a bit.

Scarlet_Lutefisk's picture

I don't disagree with any of that. I don't think anyone wants 11W (or anyone who covers the Buckeyes) to be merely sunshine pushers.
I'm sure Ryan is pulling his hair out right now over the entire kerfluffle.
I am still curious as to whether you guys send someone to the pressers. Not having to rely on second hand information can only be a good thing.
 
 

Jason Priestas's picture

We do send people to pressers. But they were with Mewhort when Spencer made his comments.

razrback16's picture

The one good thing that comes out of this is that it gets the national media's attention and given how much they seem to have a problem with Ohio State, they might start beating the drum to get OSU into the game now just so that in their minds, "Ohio State can be shown their rightful place".
A small part of me pictures Urban Meyer sitting in a corner rubbing his hands together scheming this whole scenario up before the presser today, telling Evan -- "hey when you get in front of the camera, say something outrageously arrogant to get the national media's attention", lol. Dude is a psychology genius and knows how to get the type of reaction he wants.

He clearly wasn't giving an Evan Spencer interview. I don't hold this quote against him.

GlueFingers Lavelli's picture

If we were ranked #1, yea... don't say that stuff. #3 is a different story, I hate anyone bringing attention to themselves above the team, but in todays weird sports media world, maybe getting people to talk about Ohio State is better than just sitting on our hands and accepting our Rose Bowl bid?

After watching this video I have to go on record as not being in agreement with our gracious host, @11W Jason, for the first time ever. This is about as innocuous and quietly confident a statement as one could possibly imagine coming from a player. If anyone has a problem with what he said after watching this video you really need to rethink your definition of what is appropriate.

741's picture

And I'd never heard of Ryan Ginn until about 10 minutes ago but he totally blew it on this one. At best it was a lazy mistake to tweet that inaccurate and misleading quote, and quite possibly it could have been pure tabloid schlock meant to seek retweets and mentions in the twittersphere. Spencer didn't even imply Florida State was "the other one" let alone mention them by name.

onetwentyeight's picture

Wouldn't surprise me if UM knew about this and tacitly allowed it. The politicking for a BCS NCG position starts NOW. In 2006, Michigan was #2 and many were calling for a re-match because they played us so close. Then-Florida coach Urban Meyer SHAMELESSLY lobbied for his team to be represented, unlike the "classier" Lloyd Carr. IDK how many of you were around back then, but the talk in these parts was "WOW LOOK AT THAT CLASSLESS SEC COACH". Well, guess what? It worked and the rest as they say, is history. 
So Urban has been in this spot before. He knows the necessary amount of publicity-GENERATING "bulletin board material" that is needed to get the national media to pay attention to us. Everyone around here is so terrified of attention-generating comments because we fear falling flat on our faces due to the distractions. But this is a necessary part of the BCS game (thank god its the final year of this BS), and OUR COACH has played it to perfection once before, already. 
 
Trust in Urban.

All of the fans are sick and tired of the media talking down about the Buckeyes.  I am sure the players are even more sick of it.  Good for Evan.  I hope he and the rest of the Bucks get their chance to take it out on one of these teams.

I have zero issues with what he said. Gives us media attention, and keeps people mentioning us in the same light as the other NCG contenders. While he was obviously more than a little amped up (doubtful that we'd beat either of those two teams in a "wipe the floor" fashion), this will get people buzzing about the team, and will help spawn the type of national attention needed to keep us in line for that game.

First of all he said, "wipe the field".  At least get the quote right people.  Watch the tape before having a shit fit.  He did nothing wrong at all and I am actually way more upset with it being treated as a "regretable" exchange with the media.  No reason to regret what he said.  None at all.
