You do understand that part of this country history is slavery and oppression of people of different colors? I'm not anti-America, anti-government or anything of that ilk. However, I don't agree with the glorious nation viewpoint.

I'm not a Kap apologist or against Kap as a person, however, I understand and respect his viewpoint. 

When a person says "I pledge allegiance..." that you submit being a subordinate and loyalty to a cause. If in your mind that "cause" betrays you, then you have a right to speak out against it. 

Is what he said incorrect? Did he say something that isn't true? I think we has a valid point. 

Here's something else to consider:

Suppose the government that you loyally follow does something that against human rights. Should you still be loyal and pledge your allegiance? I'm not intimating that that is what the US govt is doing, but that is a viewpoint shared by many.

Since this bothers you so much, then there isn't any reason to be on a Buckeye forum board then, correct?

We can rip Harbaugh any time we want and you have to take it.

Here is a take on Chef from NFL.com 

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000675776/article/first-look-scouting-ohio-state-lb-raekwon-mcmillan

Where he needs to improve: McMillan has some issues playing in space. He lacks ideal short-area quickness, and he misses some tackles in space because of it. He also needs to improve as a blitzer. His timing is fine, but he lacks an explosive closing burst and he needs to do a better job of finishing when he's free to the quarterback.

Biggest takeaway: There's a lot to like about McMillan. I love his size, instincts and physicality. He isn't as twitched up as former teammate Darron Lee(a first-round draft pick of the New York Jets), but he has the tools to be a dominant run defender at inside linebacker. He reminds me a little of former Alabama LB Reggie Ragland, a second-round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills. Both guys were the quarterbacks of dominant college defenses.

I appreciate that you love some JT, but give me a break. His losses are not remotely even with Meyers. 

JT had a string of loses to big time teams. UF, LSU, USC 2'xs, Texas- 3 of these games were blow outs and we got dominated.

JT had embarassing losses to Purdue 2x's, Ilinois

Meyer has never gotten blown out since he's been. 

There is no way that a team goes undefeated year in and year out, so I don't care about losing every now and then. What upset me about JT's losses were that they were either embarassing loses to team we had no business losing to, or they were blow outs.

It's not about being ranked or nor. It's about losing to vastly inferior talent. There is a big difference between losing to V-tech who has a lot of talent and losing to Purdue. 

A team could have a bad year or have a lot of injuries and be outside of the top 25, but it doesn't mean that they weren't talented.

Lol, so our starting QB was cocky? Wow that's a revelation. 

I think every great player has a measure of cockiness. 

Comment 05 Aug 2016

*ichigan has talent but not two and three deep talent. There is a reason why Florida beat us in 06 and why Alabama always plays for NCGs...it's the depth of talent. 

If peppers or their QB goes down, it's all over.

A 2016 BMW isn't a "cheapo" car. I am more of a Mercedes guy E-class or S class, but if I had to purchase another luxury car, I wouldnt be opposed to buying a smaller BMW 3 series. They are high quality and good resale.

My wife was just looking at that car. Thinking about getting rid of the Mini Cooper. 

Also he should remove that badge from the back and tint it out.
