Thanks Vico for doing this again! I used to watch religiously over on OHD when you had that site. What's next? Can you give us a preview?
1967 was a very interesting yet sadly a forgotten season of the Buckeyes. The season started out with an embarassing 14-7 loss to Arizona. Which by todays standards, would have been like losing to Kent or Akron. Zona wasn't even in the pac10.
Then the humiliating loss to Purude 41-6. Couple weeks later, a loss to Illinois I believe that was 17-13 in the Shoe. Woody told his guys they would have to win out or they would fire him. They beat a tough Sparty squad. Wisconsin in a tight one. Then finished out beating SCum 24-14.
Worse yet, the last couple of games at the Shoe, the attendance was barely in the 70,000. Even the first couple of games in 68 the attendance was barely over 70,000.
The seniors and juniors on this 67 squad are often overlooked, but they really helped catapult the team in the 68 season!
Thanks for posting!
Supposedly Bosa and the younger Heuerman have verbaled as well!!!!
Too bad his mother didn't abort him!
Amen, Brutus and NWBuckeye. Great points. The article never pointed to one specific price, other then the Zero for Thad Gibson and he says he can prove he is making payments. I would be concerned if they showed certain dollar or sales figures, but they haven't.
Dispatch is p*ssed that they didn't get the Tressel story before Yahoo. Period.
Plus, Archie said they have monitored this, so I believe our compliance department. Ever since the MoC and Obie thing, they have been on top of things.
I saw 10's report on this yesterday at 6. They had video of a player in a Chevy Impala that he bought for $9100. I believe-I could have been dreaming-that he paid more then what the Blue Book said it was worth!
Oh and as far as Pryor's mom and brother buying cars from this dealership, they are under the same rules as TP. So it makes sense that they would go to a dealership where the university recommends so the paperwork will be much easier to track down.
Not uncommon for a dealership to allow a customer to take a car home for a night or two, especially if it on the weekends and the bank or other creditor is closed. The dealership would have run a credit check, known that the customer would have good credit and would be approved. Hence putting Zero on the title before changing it.
Gibson says he can prove he is still paying for it.
Nothing to this article as of right now. Dispatch is just embarassed they didn't get the Tressel allegations first and it came from Yahoo! These print jockeys are elitist douches who look down at their noses at Internet sites like Yahoo.
As of right now, nothing to this article. Especially after the compliance officer at tOSU knew about these transactions and is confident no violations took place.
I dont recall our fan base initially screaming over Cam Newton, Reggie Bush, Bruce Pearl, etc. Either the story went on for awhile or the initial article had a HELL of a lot more fire then this article. Which has no smoke or fire. Again, things could change.
Thad Gibson said he is still paying on his Chrysler 300 and has the documents to prove it. The athletes were referred to this place by the tOSU compliance office. This article doesn't say that anything bad was done. Other then players bought cars there-which is not a violation.
If the article said there were violations then I would be worried. It didn't.
Plus the compliance officer at tOSU said he was very confident there were no violations.
So some of you guys quit being drama queens. If anything comes out, we will deal with it then.
I still don't think we will get a bowl ban or loss of schollies. Again, maybe probation and vacating wins.
NCAA will not drop USC sanctions on us. What USC did and what JT did are very, very, far from one another. Likely:maybe a year or two of probation. Maybe forfeiting wins from 2010, but that is about it.
This guy is retarded. One of these tOSU fans that will never be satisfied.
This team goes 5-0 in that stretch next year. And probably 11-1 in the regular season with a win over SCum.
There are some people that think that Matta won't stay at tOSU. I think he will. tOSU has the money to keep him, first class facility, first class town, first class university. Plus he has been able to recruit very well here.
Apparently that San Jose writer is still upset over that beating we gave them in 2002.
BTN is a success! PERIOD! When Lynch blocked that SCum FG that gave App State the win, and it was on the BTN. You knew this network was going to be a success!
I have said all along that the conference will make a move for Ga Tech! They are in the AAU and have great academics! Man that would be something if they went down to SEC country and got a team from there!
Thanks Herbie for echoing my sentiments!
