I'd put the over/under on stairs run for this at 13 sets.  Given the issues the staff had with Robert Foster over academic focus (allegedly), Urban is not going to be pleased.

As long as he isnt failing classes you can't pull a kids scholarship because he says he doesnt like school. Only way a scholly opens up here is if Cardale transfers. 

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

Ray Small is this guy's life coach....actually I hope not.  I can't believe it never dawned on him the stupidity of this before he posted this.  No words....

I'm sure he'll last real long here and be the next great QB... (sarcasm)

I hate school though, but I'm here to learn. I understand his frustrations and the futility of "students of the game" having to do regular college work, but social media is not the best place to vent.

Imagine if he had to pay to be there.....nice attitude pal.  
Why don't you just drop out and give someone who values a degree from tOSU a shot.   Oh?  You need OSU to try to get to the pro's?  Well then stfu and do work.
entitled kids drive me up the wall.   /rant

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

this kid is double majoring. he's not exactly coasting through school and I'm sure he's frustrated. let the kid vent. who cares

born and raised in Cleveland

Taking advantage of the free education by double-majoring... good for him! Who cares what he has to say?

I think the title of the thread sums it up perfectly.

Urban said good things about him yesterday on his call in show. I really hope he can hold it together.

JT Barrett's takeover in 2015 is looking easier and easier.


Sgt. Elias's picture

The dude is just frustrated it seems, and if he is indeed double majoring I'd say he's probably not empty upstairs. The problem with twitter is that once you send it it's in the wild. People need to count to sixty and cool off before firing from the hip, because the internets never forget.

better to talk about hating classes, then talking about not going to classes

jmoody's picture

It annoys me how much some student athletes complain about a huge gift. Most people are paying a fortune for the opportunity of an education, then these guys complain that it is a waste ouf time.

Dude really needs to understand the place to say these types of things... i dont understand what he is hoping to acheive with this comment... if he is trying to be funny, it isnt funny...if he is trying to make a social point, its a very poor im going to chalk this up to he is just an idiot

SouthBayBuckeye's picture

He's 18 or 19 years old, let's not blow this way out of proportion. he hasn't lived long enough to have the kind of perspective a lot of you are talking about. i know when i was a freshman.. or sr, i didn't want to go to class early in the AM or on fridays or.. ever. edit
edit: also, since he's a freshman, a lot of his classes are BS gen ed classes that you'll never use a day in your adult life. it's hard to get pumped about going to psych 101(worst class ever)
is he wrong? yes. but as long as he actually goes to class, whether he likes to or not, and he passes i'll let the comment slide. howver, i'm sure Coach Meyer will give him a nice "attitude adjustment" as my dad always put it.

I doubt he'll every play but it has little to do with his comments and everything to do with Braxton Miller, JT Barret, and Barker or whoever they bring in in 2014.

The reality of college sports is that some of the "student-athletes" are just here until they get to the NFL, NBA, etc. They really aren't in school to go to school. People need to acknowledge it. It's the damn truth.
I argue that more people need to say it. Maybe if more people said it maybe it won't be just the hidden truth, and maybe something will be done about it.

Maybe this is why so many pro athletes go broke.  It's these athletes that need to change, not us.

When I was 18 I hated Friday classes and skipped virtually all of them. If you replace "Football" with (drinking/partying/basketball/girls/any number of things) he's saying what EVERYBODY has said at some point freshman year.

You have to admit that if further research revealed that Cardales's a 4.0 student studying physics his tweet would become pretty frickin funny!

"I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message."

Ill_Buckeye's picture

ya you guys are probably right... I used to jump out of my bed and skip to class everyday.
find me a kid who is enamored with going to college classes everyday (especialy freshman pre-reqs) and I'll show you a liar 

buckeyedude's picture

I hate going to work every day, but damn, I get hungry!
All the nice looking girls in college, you'd think he'd skip to class?
I get your point though, IllBuck.



bodast67's picture

I agree with you but my point is that you have to do your due dilligence(put in work) to be the leader of the Buckeye offense. Just seems like this kid is impatient with the process and may not have the mental fortitude at this time to be the future QB.
Hopefully it is youth talking and he works through it. He is a Buckeye, so I wish him all the luck moving forward.

(sigh)... from what I've seen, Cardale has Cam Newton size, strength, speed, and ability. But he has very little patience and is very immature (not unlike Cam in his early days under Urbz at Florida). But while he's very immature, I think he's a good kid at heart. He's not the type of kid that's going to steal a laptop, get six speeding tickets in two years and get cited more than once for driving without a license, or get kicked out of school for multiple cheating incidents like Cam Newton (allegedly).
Patience, young padawan.

At least he doesn't steal laptops!

This is hilarious. Like, top 10 tweet of the year hilarious.
I have a feeling he won't ever get PT here, especially if he doesn't start to take his academics seriously.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

NoVA Buckeye's picture

He's certainly no Will Hill, and don't think about making the comparisons.

for real this is 100% the exact thing i'd start tweeting if i was an OSU football player, just to mess with people

Crimson's picture

Why can't I upvote this?  *sadface*

FROMTHE18's picture

lol @ESPN... A. as if Cardale is "Ohio State QB" and B. as if this is a story that belongs on the homepage.... they are so pathetic 

andretolstoy's picture

Dude still hasn't had his 'aha moment.' Perhaps someone should do some vocational inventory exercises with the the lil' tike?

skycake's picture

To be fair, his spelling, capitalization, and grammar are far better than 95+% of Twitter users.

jenks's picture

I was never really that impressed when I saw him in high school. Didn't he already spend a year at juco?

tennbuckeye19's picture

Wasn't Juco, it was Fork Union military academy. Eddie George and others have gone there prior to coming to OSU. 

NoVA Buckeye's picture

Correct. It is a graduate prep school. A few of my former teammates played there to get scholarships for football.

Jdadams01's picture

I honestly could care less that Cardale thinks this, most probably assumed the whole team thought this already. The issue is that it once again gives negative pub to a program which he represents. His comments reflect on the whole team and staff. That's the message Urban will probably try to reinforce.

One Bad Buckeye's picture

Does it bother me that Jones doesn't like school? No.
Does it bother me that he took it to social media? Yes.  
I can't remember how many times I'd walk out of Morrill Tower and get smacked in the face by that January wind chill and turn around and go right back up the elevator to my suite.

I thought that Fork Union marched this kind of thinking out of it's students.

Poison nuts's picture

I could care less what he wrote because I could #giveashitaboutatweet.
What I hate is all the bad press it has created for OSU. Whether he actually hates school, was tired that morning, realized it was freezing on the way to class, was pulling a prank, whatever - now every sports blog or rival moron fan out there is weighing in on this. Of course in the eyes of some - it's all Urban Meyers fault & don't even go to ESPN story on this & read the comments there unless you don't mind the ignorant haters that live under that rock....but I digress. I wish people had more of an understanding of the power these little tweets can have & the headaches they can cause. #fuckatweet.

What's even worse (though not surprising) is that this "story" is actually one of the headlines listed on ESPN's homepage right now. Not just the home page for college football, but the homepage for the site as a whole. They have 10 headlines up at a time, meaning they considered this tweet to be among the top 10 sporting news events this Saturday afternoon. 

BuckDavis's picture

Urban's Twitter ban did have some advantages....

dsbgobux's picture

Too bad twitter doesn't have grammar check. Did he dress for the game tonight? I don't see him.
