PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE

There's the thrust of it right there.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
That's right.....and I can't wait to keep them all pissed off for the things this program starts doing on the field (insert obligatory Urban's "SOON" image here).

Yep that was expected. Still not sure why Pryor is viewed as a thug. Johnny's rap sheet beats the run in Pryor had in HS. Kid was never linked to anything other than selling his own memorabilia for Tattoo's (and to pay his mothers rent which is never reported).

Yeah exactly it's one thing to do it to help support your family like pryor did but it's a whole different story when it comes to you already being wealthy (Manziel)
Whatever the case, the people out there supporting Manziel who absolutely ripped Pryor owe Pryor a big apology. Seriously.
You'll probably need to hire Jay and Silent Bob to pay these people 'visits' to make them apologize. Otherwise, I don't think an apology is gonna happen.

THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE THE BALL LICKERS
I know there's a game saturday, and my ass will be there.
Here's one apology, courtesy of Dennis Dodd
Is there a reputation that TP under performed? I mean he was 34-4 as a starter, won the Rose Bowl, beat the second best SEC team in the Sugar Bowl, and had all of the "tat-five" not been suspended would have challenged for a NC his senior year. And did it all without knowing how to properly throw a football thanks to his QB's coach/video coordinator.
IMO, if OSU had a better OC, TP would have records that not even Braxton could break. But we all know that wasn't the case. I never thought he under performed. Look at Iowa game...we don't have him, we don't win (4th and 10 and he runs for a 1st down and keep the drive alive).
Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.
TP was a first down machine, he willed first downs even with the offense that was put around him. I agree, I think TP would have KILLED it in Meyer's offense and would have been more ready for the NFL. Braxton is a home run hitter and design run guy that can take it to the house. Pryor's speed and size just would have made him Tebow deadly in this offense. This is no snuff to Braxton who is a stud unto himself, I just really think Pryor had all the tools in the world to be better.
Johnny's situation is WAY worse than what the Tat-gate guys did. I mentioned this right after the news hit ESPN that Johnny won't get sH$t. This you can guarentee...and it's hypocritical, sad bc it's all about the Benjamins, and proves that tSEC teams can do more than OSU or any other college (not to mention Oregon got away with recruiting violations, more $$$=Phil Knight effect). And I'm glad Brew pointed out the #1 reason OSU received such a punishment as it did. Everyone hates on us and it's not like they aren't. So I say we can stop saying there's no conspiracy theories against OSU (it appears there is based on this article).
The thing that really irks me about the whole comparison to TP and Johnny goofball is that Tp wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Do you remember seeing the espn special following manziel around during spring practice he gets into his 60 k Mercedes with the rims on it! Manziel comes from a family of money and he was babied and given everything he has ever wanted! The kid is going to be a complete screw up for the rest of his life! If I was in his situation at that age my parents would have beaten my ass for disgracing my families name!
Eat, Sleep, and Breathe Buckeyes
This whole thing is the most hypocritical bunch of BS that I have seen in a while. Lots of things can be named as "different" but none of them explain it. Manziel has done everything in his power to ruin his image, yet he still get's supported in all of this.
I am normally the LAST guy to cry race card, I think it is overused and usually not true... but in this case I can't help but to think that it is true. Also, I am also normally the last one to cry OSU hate bias, but again, I can't help but to think this clearly has that sniff. No big issue has drawn such negative attention than the Tat 5. Miami can get strippers and others can profit MORE than them, yet the media has only really focused a significant amount of attention on OSU. It is a really sad situation IMO.
I agree with everything I have read so far on this thread and I would also like to add there is general B1G hate out there which has now been around a few years. People were also quick to throw Tressel under the bus for the same reasons Tebow is so scrutinized. So, with Pryor all the stars had aligned for the haters.
On thing is for certain no matter if Johnny skates or doesn't with the NCAA. Archie will remain the only 2x winner for at least two more years.
I am still a believer in that the Media still has a hair up its ass from when Woody would not back down from them and the fact that he pissed them off way more than any other couch back then. And they have never gotten over that and i don't think they every will and they will always take cheap shots at tOSU every chance they get.
I could be wrong but it just seems they run with every little thing and blow it up way more then it needs to be while they over look other schools with or even worse problems than OSU. The hate they have for us is one that eats at them like no other and they live breath sleep and eat that hate daily just waiting for anything they can jump on.
When you have that much hate for someone that it consumes your every thought and waking monent you are missing out on all life as to offer and that is a sad life to live. I know this because i use to be just like that when i was young and stupid and could only think of getting even with those who i felt wronged me back then.
Life is to dam short to worry about what other are doing in their lifes or the problem they are trying to stir up for others or you. You just need to focus on your life and live it as though it might be your last day and everything else will take care of its self.
