OK so in light of the mayhem of FNL Yesterday there has been some hate on the Twittersphere for Torrance Gibson...How much??? You be the judge......

 

 

 

            

                OSU now say they lead for Torrance Gibson. Is this a never ending merry go round or what? Seems like whom ever gets a visit is his leader?

            Heres my personal favorite....V

The Chuck E Cheese tweet is funny. The kid has talent, but he seems to really like the recruiting game. He reminds me a ton of TP, both on and off the field.

i think between auburn slowing down on his recruitment and tennesee imploding him with hate mail...well..things are DEFINATELY looking up for the good guys at this point.

there is no greater joy than watching Michigan get slammed. in anything

Some of those are things we have all read on these boards to be fair. Def some butt hurt, but I felt the same as the guy who said if we get him great, if not oh well.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

lets scroll thru some of the past Torrance gibson threads on this site. some of those comments look awfully familiar to the ones we were saying b4 he visited

Came here to say exactly this. The amount of dumbass "Oh he's got issues, he's a diva, we don't want him" comments on here the past few months has been pissing me off. But once he names us his leader again, people are all super happy about him.

I've wanted him in this class since the start. And anyone who's going to judge a kid they've never met based on a social media site that they don't use needs a perspective check.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Yessir. Well said and sentiments are shared by me as well.

BUT...we're they saying those things to TG on twitter?? I imagine there were some pro OSU comments directed towards him on twitter but to go raving mad?? I doubt that.

Tennessee fans wear orange so they can wear the same shirt to the game on Saturday, to go hunting on Sunday and then To their garbage man job on Monday. 

It the same shirt they were given at the correctional facility.

A lot of this criticism is warranted. You will see similar stuff tucked away in our own recruiting forums. Lets not become hypocritical and say Vols fans are any worse than some of our fans at their worst.

Maybe we can take the time to self reflect and try not to emulate the VOLS behavior in the future.  May we also not take things so personally when a recruit decides to commit elsewhere.

If I've learned anything from this site, it's this ^  Fan is short for fanatic, and with a fanbase as large as ours....there's bound to be a lot of stupid.  Reminds me of something I was told about glass houses....

I agree shit fans are no better if they are Buckeye fans or Tennessee fans.

robb1379's picture

I was on the can killing time scrolling through the TG forum on vol nation and to be honest it wasn't much different than what I've read here. "...too much drama" "...I'm much happier with <insert current QB commit>" "...he'll have a new leader after his next visit" etc. 

I hope he comes here and does great things. If it's throwing TD's, receiving TD's or holding a clip board calling in the plays. But I'm not going to hold it against a kid for committing elsewhere or enjoying his recruitment.

Some TN fans are still trying to be nice to him on Twitter saying these people are bandwagon fans. Pretty sure you need to actually win games to be on the bandwagon. Can't wait until TG Vonn Bell's these fools.

Let this be a lesson to UT and tOSU fans everywhere on twitter. Please please please please please stop tweeting at and about these recruits. You are only hurting your university's chances of landing them.

No doubt. On one hand I'd love to TOSU square up with Tennessee, but on the other hand, that would likely mean TOSU lost what, 4-5 regular season games and are matched up in the Gator Bowl or something.

In the SEC your team doesn't have to win cause everyone can still root for Bama in the end.  S-E-C!

We have to realize that anything we write on the internet, even on this site, can be copied and pasted everywhere on the internet. The recruits could possibly read it as well.  I'm far from perfect myself, but hopefully we can be wise and judicious before we talk about recruits, and think before we hit that send button. Torrance retweeted some of his negative twitter responses from angry Vols fans. Perhaps it was for motivation, but it shows they read their negative tweets, and postings. So be careful. Rant over.

BuckeyeRealist13's picture

I just want to let that Ramblin Man know that Ohio State has a very solid record against the SEC. I believe Ohio State is at least 10 games over .500 against the SEC. Also, if TG does choose OSU, I'm sure TG could care less about the SEC at that point. I hate how SEC fans, and SEC media confuse passion with ignorance. Buckeye Nation is passionate, the majority of SEC fans that I have dealt with are no more passionate than OSU fans, just ignorant. 

I've spent time in the South, I don't care what anybody says they don't have the passion for football that us Ohioans have.

Thats something i have always had trouble with when it comes to fans bad mouthing a 17 or 18 old kid because it just does not make any sense. These are young men just comming into their own at that age and making probably the first big major choice of their life.

Let these kids make their choice's and wish them well and good luck as they go out into the world for the first time on their own. people need to stop and remember what it was like the first time they left the nest and wondered into a world of the unknown.

This may sound soft but I cried the first time I left for college, and that was just going an hour and a half to Athens (O.U Bobcats) I started out homesick for the first few weeks until I eventually settled in and started meeting lots of people and making good friends.

Other buckeye fans: STOP TAGGING TORRANCE GIBSON (or other recruits) IN TWEETS/INSTAGRAM POSTS!!!

Although this seems like something that should be common sense and a given, obviously it's not. If you don't understand why, it would be pointless for me to tell you. That is all.

Seems to be a lot of negativity towards "Rednecks" on here.  Mind you there are a lot in Ohio as well that are die hard Bucks fans.  Step out of any city and there they are.  Maybe stop the name calling and just address the whining remarks.  Just my thoughts!

So, they're pissed that he named a school his leader, after being interested in them the entire time, yet not being able to visit until now? I don't recall their anger when he announced that the fake UT was his leader after visiting there...

I don't even care to have Torrance anymore. If he commits to UT that's awesome but if he doesn't I could care less. My Vols are straight.

...meaning he does care at least a little bit?

This is why buckeye fans need to remember that OSU will continue to be OSU regardless of any one kid, we are set up to win now and win later and one player will not change that.........UT cannot say the same

Humbuck's picture

The most insecure fan base in the country. 

When they get an obvious commit they always have to talk smack about Butch owning whichever coach he beat for the kid.

When they lose a commit the kid goes from being the golden child to the worst player ever with at least one family member taking cash from the winning school.

Gibson was "practically moved in to a dorm" about 6 weeks ago and now he is just another bust.
