That AndyVance, he's okay.

Seriously though, thanks for making this point. I've been rather critical of Coach Matta in years past, so it's pretty clear there is no systematic effort to silence folks who are ready to "move on," so to speak.

As others have noted above, it's not the opinion that gets folks in our crosshairs, it's sharing that opinion in an unproductive way. Golden rule of the Internet: don't be a jerk.

You're not alone John - I didn't mind the Clark Kent, the throat slash was fine, but the dab just looks dumb. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Stop doing it, it makes you look dumb.

Cowturd is the worst there is though.

Analysis: FALSE.

All kidding aside, Cowherd is extremely good at radio. Most people equate "I don't like this person's opinions" with "This person is bad at their job."

I always shake my head when we refer to 18-22-year-old players as "kids," but stories like this (and yesterday's news about Grandstaff) are a good reminder that even though they are in fact "adults," they're not always grown up.

So you know him personally? Is he a decent guy in real life?

I don't know him "in real life" as in we've met in person - but he stays in touch via email. Yes, he is a decent guy, very cerebral (longtime readers will understand that having read many of his contributions), and knows the game and the business through and through. I honestly think he goes to more Ohio State games than 95% of the Buckeye fans I know. Genuinely loves the Rivalry and respects the rival.

MMan: well I half expected that, you guys have a really, really great football team. I'm so happy for you. 

Actually, it was a lot like that. He pretty much took it in stride.
