I won't claim to know any more details about Carlos Hyde, or Bradly Roby. Everything I have heard has been here on 11 warriors. All I know is I am in shock. And I deeply feel sad. Not only because of my high hopes for their involvement on the field this year. Or for their futures. But also for the potential negativity our beloved OSU might receive from the media. Of all the things I dislike about the media , bashing OSU is number one. I fear that the many jackasses who insist on bashing OSU will be giving themselves writers cramps, or shortness of breath over these two players.
I am asking all of us buckeye loving 11 warriors to ignore any of the media outlets who will be bashing us. Please don't feed in to their bullcrap. There is no need to defend any of our Buckeyes. Don't feed the trolls. Don't encourage them, please! And even more importantly sometimes trying to defend or diffuse situations can lead to anger. And might make ourselves look bad.
Its ok to hurt. It's ok to be sad. Angry. Disappointed. Confused. Or just to be in plain shock. I am all of these things. I am even worried what Urban will do to replace these two beasts. He will! I know that. We will get over this. We have been through a ton of crap these last three years. We will survive. We will succeed. They need our support more than ever. We have the best coaches, the best fans, the best band, the best state, and the best players Urban wanted to get. In Urban we trust.
With all that being said I still want to play Keith Urbans song "tonight I wanna cry" on repeat. While drinking a bottle of crown with a straw. Until I pass out , with hopes tomorrow will be a better day. Maybe a good cry is what we all need. I still don't know?
