Grown adults tweeting teenage boys begging them to come play for their favorite team is creepy no matter what way you slice it.

Yes, Fuzz was respectful with his approach but it's a very slippery slope.

Comment 23 Jan 2015

Whether or not Herman, Warriner, or Meyer himself were out coached is not the issue here. The issue is some fans act like lunatics anytime anything goes bad with regards to OSU football. If you want to question play calling that's one thing, but a lot of the comments from the lunatic fringe were WAY overboard.

Comment 23 Jan 2015

Well said Scuba Steve. It's funny that all the people bringing up hindsight are the ones who acted like raging lunatics earlier in the season. It's one thing to be unhappy with the team for losing 3 of 4 games...it's quite another to go ape shit crazy and call for the entire staff to be fired.

Comment 22 Jan 2015

It doesn't mean that's an excuse for fans to act like raging lunatics either. Looking through some of these posts was equally comical and sad.

To further expand on what Logamaniac said, if you want people to take you seriously, please work on your grammar. I hate to be a grammar Nazi, seeing as I am no expert on the matter myself, but trying to read through your comments is like trying to decipher an ancient hieroglyph....random capitialization, fragmented sentences, run-on sentences, etc. I think I went through two legal pads and a bottle of advil trying to figure out exactly what you were trying to say.

Comment 20 Jan 2015

You and I have different definitions of "insults", "logic", and "facts" and apparently the majority of OSU fans that have commented on this thread thus far feel the same way as I do about the subject.

If you think saying something has gone over your head(which at least one other poster also pointed out) then you have some pretty thin skin.

Sigh...

You clearly don't get it and are trying to compare apples to oranges. College football and Pro football are two completely different animals when it comes to TV viewership and how important it is to a particular league/team.

Comment 20 Jan 2015

I understand what you're trying to say, but it's not that simple. It comes down to exposure...ESPN can offer more exposure on a national level, with the added bonus of MUCH better production quality, than what you can get from FOX, NBC, or CBS. Whether you like ESPN or not, the fact of the matter is that their brand is synonymous with sports...especially college football and basketball. Sure B1G fans will watch games regardless of what channel it's on, but when you limit the exposure to the casual fan who is accustomed to simply clicking on one of the 8 ESPN channels to see what games are on....that is not a good thing at all. And this is even if they have FS1/FS2 in their cable package as an option. Yes, the casual fan will find a big time, highly marketed game on any channel but what about your OSU vs Minny type game at noon?

And many of you are forgetting the biggest issue of all....competition amongst networks. If you think ESPN has/had and agenda against the B1G before, wait until they no longer have a financial interest in the league...then you'll really see the hype machine ramp up. Do you think FOX, specifically FS1/2 and compete with the ESPN hype machine? If ESPN drives the sports narrative, as many on here claim, then how do you think that's going to play out for the B1G when the B1G is now in direct competition with ESPN for viewers?

Dividing the pie a little more might not be a bad thing, but to think you can cut ties with ESPN completely and not have any sort of negative effect is wishful thinking.

But if you're on an island by yourself it does matter when it comes to national perception. If less casual fans watch your games....that is not good. If it means less exposure, ie casual fans seeing your games/highlights...that is not a great selling point for recruiting. The best case scenario as it stands now is to keep everything status quo...with perhaps a slight tweak to give FOX/CBS/NBC the game of the week.

Comment 20 Jan 2015

Thanks Loga -

1) You're right, my tone definitely comes across dry and sarcastic at times...this is something I struggle with in writing in general (perhaps this explains some of my failed booty call attempts in college) but in most cases on here, it comes across worse than I actually intended.

2) Thank you for pointing out context...it's easy to paint a picture of someone without looking at all the info. While I may struggle with my tone at times I've never personally insulted someone on here, yet I've lost track of the number of times I've been insulted, or my favorite, been accused of being a Michigan fan. People can think whatever they want about me, but I make no apologies for thinking rationally rather than going along with the collective group think.

Comment 19 Jan 2015

Yea I really tire of this whole JM lost the locker room stuff as well. There is nothing out here that supports that but plenty of info to refute it....just ask Frank Gore. 

JM and the front office didn't see eye to eye and that's why he's gone. 

Just because he's the head coach at UM doesn't mean we can't accept the fact that he's a good coach. 

Comment 17 Jan 2015

Well now I've heard it all. Let me get this straight, you're saying the current players and coaches had something to do with the PSU coverup because they chose to attend the school YEARS after everything went down? I have no words....

Comment 17 Jan 2015

I thought we, as grown adults, were past using the term "ped state". It boggles my mind how you think that 1) it's funny 2) is not disrespectful to the current players who had NOTHING to do with this and 3) and most importantly, is not disrespectful to the victims.
