I hate what has become of the commentariat at Deadspin. The comment section used to always be good for multiple laughs per article. Now it's the left over trash from Yahoo's commenters filling it up with bs. It's depressing.

For as irrational as our fanbase is purported to (and can) be, I've been struck by how well we've taken the ban. There's been a little grumbling, but I think most people were truly happy watching a great group of seniors go 12-0 and beat Michigan. More would've been great, but this is the hand we were dealt as fans. 
Buckeye football for nothing other than the sake of Buckeye football is still a beautiful thing.

I thought this was the best line in the whole article:

This year's team, by contrast, will stand forever as the one that played not for money but for pride.

I was about to quote the exact same thing. Great line.

There's also a few good comments on the original Bloomberg article.  Funny stuff.
