There's a reason I bring sunglasses to every game I attend at The Horseshoe, even if the Buckeyes are playing at night...

We all have a little Neutron Man within us

Absolutely. 

I love this site and its writers. But the staff did a poor job with this. I remember DJ chastising those who disagreed with this abrupt firing on skull session the following day, telling those who didnt "100% agree with the decision to take a walk around the block." Whether or not Waters ultimately deserves to be fired, the fact of the matter is that you shouldn't try to discourage other people from expressing their opinions without knowing all of the facts. 

Johnny was another one that couldn't wait to grab a torch on this subject without even hearing a rebuttal from the band members or Waters. As Ohio State football fans, I'd like to think that you guys would understand, from experience, how imperative it is to wait for facts and credible details before rushing to judgement.

Desmond howard was a gary moeller guy. Not a lloyd carr "prodigy"

The school of music people would love to throw a bunch of tacky crap onto theband. But hey, many on this forum praised the schools decision to fire waters after a hastily-done, poorly-sampled investigation. Those folks can enjoy the sites and sounds of a garbage product

Marching band people have frequently mentioned a rift between them and the school of music. SoM has been trying to undermine the band for years. They hate the fact that many of their woodwind players switch instruments to partake in the band. Theyve lobbied to have band practice time reduced.  They hated waters because he didnt have a doctorate. Now two of them are in charge for the interim. Not good IMO

She's only been here for two years. She hasn't experienced Michigan week when they have actually been good and Osu has had a lackluster schedule since their arrival. The atmosphere is substantially different under different circumstances. 

as far as the SEC goes, shes correct to an extent. Many of the other B1G schools are relatively apathetic about football. Osu fans are equally as passionate about football as anybody in the SEC. But the vitriol that she saw in the south doesnt really exist up here because almost everybody in Ohio is an Osu fan. Sure, there are a few token UM or notre dame fans scattered around, but when everybody is pulling for the same school you arent going to see much heckling, vandalism or other newsworthy incidents of crazy fan behavior. It's not like that in sec states, where fans of countless other schools are clustered together, regardless of location. Those people are always at eachother's throats and, as a result, may appear to be more intense

This.

I usually like DJ's writing. But his opening statement tries to ostracize anybody with a difference of opinion from his own on this matter. Which itself is insane given the way he writes. The situation is more complicated than "John Waters is an idiot. He must be fired. If you disagree than you are wrong and cannot say otherwise." People have definitely said some nutty things in Waters' defense but plenty of others have brought up valid points that should be included in the discussion.

yes, because giving high ratings to two stud prospects on OSU's radar will undo all of the sensationalist reporting they did to the program during Tatgate and 2003/2004.

Comment 19 Jun 2014

I was there. Took off work to see it. Girlfriend asked if I wanted to leave early after Anaheim scored the go-ahead runs. I put my man card down on the table and told her HELL F'ING NO. She didn't complain after the game was over

-i dont care for "across the field". "Buckeye battle cry" is outstanding. So is "on wisconsin" and the chorus for "the victors"

-i like penn state fans

-i dont care for aaron craft

-i think Earle Bruce is a douche

-i once hooked up with a chick who was 5 inches taller than me and was a michigan fan

-i hate the seven nation army chant

Seriously, you sound like the type of person who thinks Transformers is a better movie than Gone With The Wind because there's "too much talking and not enough action." Baseball fans, like myself, find the game exciting because we enjoy watching the duel between pitcher and hitter, and how each of these one-on-one matchups affect the outcome for all 25 guys on each team. Strategies, such as what pitches to throw, what pitchers to use, what hitters to insert into the lineup, when to send baserunners, when to bunt and where to place the fielders, give the sport a complex and cerebral dimension that is rare among other sports. And if you are not at the very least impressed with the control and speed at which the pitchers throw, the distance of the homeruns or the miraculous defensive plays, then you are simply a fool

Espn being espn. What else is new? You re kidding yourselfnif you think they will change just because urban is here. They are a network of carnival-barking, half-wit, know-nothing pieces of s---
