One thing for sure, I'll be happier when Bosa and Bennett are on the post season all American team. Even my phone knows that Bosa is a stud. It auto corrects his name to Boss.

Agreed 100%. Many of us on this site have great memories of playing a sport, whether individually or on a team. We are now fortunate enough to watch our kids coming to the sidelines smiling ear to ear, having a blast just to be on the field. To me, sports will never be labor (in the most commonly understood use of the word labor.)

If I walked down the street and made a perfect form tackle on another pedestrian, yeah I'd get arrested for that too. Most legal actions in boxing, soccer, football, lacrosse, rugby and wrestling would get you arrested. A few in baseball and basketball would also. It is unfortunate that people can't draw a line and understand the difference between playing a sport and living in a civilized society.

D.J., you forgot to use the sarcasm font when talking about kids getting paid for playing little league. Please tell me you're not serious.

People laugh at me because I have the all brass opening for Carmen Ohio as my ringtone. Drake is similar to Holbrook in that he doesn't understand what makes Ohio State, Ohio State. He doesn't understand the strength of the bonds between the football team and the band. I am being dead serious, lets bring Gee back for a 3rd go around and get rid of some of the burdening political correctness. Hasn't OSU learned from the past people (Cooper-TTUN) who just don't get it?

A big problem with this issue as it relates to sports is railroading. I have heard many talk show hosts speak bad about Tony Dungy for his views. His opinions for not wanting him on the team had two main points. First, he knew it would be a major distraction for the team with the media feeding frenzy. Second, he didn't think that Sam was necessarily good enough to play for an NFL team. These are legit reasons to not draft any player. Now SOME in the media are writing the story "Dungy wouldn't draft Sam because he is gay." Not true. Hopefully it's not a story if Sam gets cut from a team. Sexual orientation has no bearing on the skill level of any player. I personally don't care if a player is gay or straight, if I'm a coach the only thing I want to know is are you good enough to help my team win football games. Period. My freshman year in college we had a senior all American who was gay but it was a complete non issue. First of all, he was good enough to make the team. Second, we were a better team with him on the field.

Even though we have a highly responsible community, the questions would have to be filtered. The chance some dialogue with a recruit could hamper the Buckeyes chances of landing that kid is too great a risk Edit: Mike, while I was typing my post, you responded to someone else that it would be filtered.

I have never seen Dantonio smile like that. Bobby Carpenter said on 97.1 the fan that Dantonio wouldn't even smile at Carpenter's wedding. Whoever knew that Tressel ball would come back to bite us. They concern me the most even though they lost quite a few starters. Recently, Dantonio has MSU playing up for the big games.

M man, just go ahead and reveal your true identity as Dave Brandon. You will still be welcome here. ... Seriously though, you seem to assured that he IS going to be off the team for good.

Come on Big Red, we all love football, but there are some things in life that are more important. We used to play Stuebenville in the playoffs every year, don't shame Ohio high school football. You're better than that.

I, for one, am ready for the full implementation of the Marshall Plan. The wait will make the execution so much sweeter. Bath salts with Bo, I like it D.J. He has transformed himself into an angry hot seat coach, into a light hearted, fun guy. Getting harder not to like him.

Passion for OSU football should be enough to get our fans excited at the shoe.

Younger brothers are often more developed that older ones because they are always trying to play up to their sibling.  If he is more developed than Joey, damn that is a scary thought.  The Bosa's seem close, hopefully he'll want to play on the same D-line as his brother in college (if Joey stays).  I remember Payton Manning saying he would definitely go to Ole Miss if Cooper hadn't gotten hurt.

Camp Harbaugh is a breeze compared to Camp Meyer.  He's come a long way since that bar incident; long live Carlos.
