*Stradley and Siebert. 

Sorry I couldnt resist. I dont care if park and stradley are combined. Stradley will always be a separate and unique institution among the dorms

Comment 24 Jan 2015

What a sad fanbase. They're so upset and in denial about the one title that they let slip out of their hands that they can't even enjoy the other five that they won.

I'm eternally grateful that I'm not associated with a university and a city like Miami. I'm grateful that our fans and alumni give this team and school the support and funding that they need to be elite. I'm grateful that we have a determined and charismatic head coach and staff, unlike what Miami has with Al Golden, who, apart from looking constantly overwhelmed and terrible in dress clothes, is a pretty bad coach.

Plenty of people in Miami struggled and worked hard for what they have, especially the Cubans who escaped the oppression of their own country. But a great number of people in Miami also went down there because they fled from whatever challenges they experienced in their own states. They saw the warm weather and glamorous exterior of the city and thought their lives would be easier and that they wouldn't have to work hard. Miami is a city filled with a lot of entitled, fair weather people. They lack grit and fortitude. It's why they think the 2002 title should have been handed to them and, ultimately, it's why that still haunts them today.

What a waste of government money. As if people like Greg Anthony are making this a scary world. Complete nonsense. We have so many problems in this country yet the authorities are worried about a man who wants to pay to have his butthole licked. Stupid stupid stupid

Comment 15 Jan 2015

These are some solid points. And it s encouraging to see him involve himself with school children.

it s not that i dont think cardale can handle himself now that hes a star. I dont know him and i dont know how he will handle this. What im saying is that there are many people who cannot handle what he has earned and that there will be new challenges that come with success, and some will come on a personal level

Comment 15 Jan 2015

I don't know what he should do. Regarding the qbs, There are three qbs, including a senior, that want to play immediately. That wasnt an issue this year because brax was the undisputed senior starter in fall camp, got injured and greatly curbed everyone's expectations for this team. The vibe will be completely different going to a season with all three guys. If any staff can handle the challenge this one can. But it can destroy the team if it isn't handled properly. 

All that I know is that boosters and other non-football people should leave this kid alone and let him operate and everyone else operate. 

Comment 15 Jan 2015

Of course he deserves to enjoy his success. He also has a great support group. But big time college football attracts some terrible people with millions in the bank that will look to exploit him. And I have no doubt that some of those people visit this website. This post was to not only express my concerns with a young kid achieving instant fame, but also to tell anybody that will listen to treat him like a normal person and and respect that he now has an enormous bullseye on his back

Comment 11 Jan 2015

I heard Adam Neft go on 97.1 on friday night and complain about Tressel being elected to the college football HOF before his show cause penalty expired. Neft can dunk his head in gorilla s--t for all I care. Tress is a hall of famer today, tomorrow and 1,000 years from now. I could care less for anybody who is still outraged that he lied to the hypocritical NCAA about a bunch poor black kids that traded THEIR belongings for money and tattoos

Comment 08 Jan 2015

Glad that Loggains is out. Eff that guy with a spork. He had a big hand in undermining ray farmer and bringing manziel to cleveland. Then he did nothing to develop manziel once he arrived

Shannahan can be hit or miss but i wanted at least one more year from him. 

Im in the minority but i would welcome weis as an OC. Everybody's soured on him after his disasterous stints with multiple college programs. But he has a fair track record as a coordinator in the NFL

Comment 07 Jan 2015

Ive always thought the cincy-hates-osu narrative is too convenient and a little exaggerated. Their media certainly doesnt care for us. But whenever in down there i see osu stuff and buckeye fans all over the place. It's definitely not cleveland or dayton or youngstown in terms of support but it s still very significant. On top of that, almost all of the counties in metro cincinnati favored ohio state football according to that new york times study last year

Comment 05 Jan 2015

I dont understand why he had to "apologize" for making predictions that didn't come to fruition. The B1G had been bad for a long time and it looked like more of the same in early september. Hard to jab at him for that even if he discounted them too early. 

But this piece was pretty narcissistic. I doubt anybody on this board likes Schlabach but I also don't think anybody gives a shit about him. It sounds like he's trying too hard to be a villain.  He took a season where power was wrestled from the hands of the SEC and made it about himself

Comment 01 Jan 2015

Honestly the network probably tells him to say crazy things about OSU. That role used to belong to Trev Alberts, ESPN saw the reaction by our fan base and told May to keep playing the part.

A friend of mine was an intern with the Ohio U athletic department a few years ago and told me that Alberts came to some of Frank Solich's practice. Alberts apparently made it clear that he was playing a part on the show as dictated to him by the network producers. Gotta think the same applies to May.

Honestly, if that's the case, then I feel sorry for him. I've read Mark May's book on the Redskins and I think he has some bright views. It would be sad if he is forced to compromise his knowledge and insight because the suits told him to keep playing the same hacky schtick he's been doing since 2002

Comment 27 Dec 2014

Good lord people he hasnt even be hired yet. And he may not get hired at all. Theres no denying that he wants to coach in the nfl again and the other pro teams will get their first chance to talk with him this week. Dont get ahead of yourselves 

Comment 21 Dec 2014

This has been an issue ever since Matta took over. It cost them a chance to play for the national championship when they blew it against kansas in 2012. Countless victories that should have been blowouts ended up coming down to the final possessions, even on the Oden/Conley juggernaut team

Comment 19 Dec 2014

I must say that the songs posted on this thread are outstanding. Worthy of going to The Library Bar or Bier Stube, taking over the jukeboxes and throwing down some pitchers to these tracks

Comment 19 Dec 2014
