Players bartering with their own personal property IS one of the most egregious violations of NCAA rules
Very true, but this is not why OSU got into trouble.
OSU didn't get LOIC either.
I think I'm going to apologize for coming at you the way I did. That was a very logical, well reasoned response for why you have beef with KH. I think sometimes I lump ppl into the "Herbies a fake Buckeye" club and forget there are those who have actually thought about why feel a certain way rather than just following group think.
I'm not rationalizing anything, it's utterly ABSURD to think KH has some sort of vendetta against OSU. Others have said things just as inflammatory, but there is a small contingent of OSU fans that are OBSESSED with hating on KH and ignore anything that disproves their bias.
I am pissed at you that you made me do this:
I'm pissed you think this qualifies as "screwing" OSU.
Why do you hate Chipotle so much?
but after years of bashing the big ten
It's not like it wasn't deserved for a span of 5-6 years...
I'd be more worried about Notre Dame
But that's not what you said...
but not since the "consider them rolled" event you don't seem to know about.
It appears you are the one who doesn't know about that event...you know, the one that occurred in 2004. Between 2005 and 2010, they covered OSU 12 times with 7 being AT OSU. Whether they came to OSU or not after 2010 is more to do with scheduling than anything. If they stopped covering OSU altogether your argument might hold water, but that hasn't been the case.
I think you're the one who is mad, bro.
Ohio State is only covered if there is a chance for loss.
Stupid Comment Alert!
Two things -
1) Nearly EVERY game that GameDay goes to is a chance for a loss....how many times do you see them come to OSU-Purdue?
2) FYI, the new deal between the B1G and ESPN is worth more PER YEAR than the ESPN - SEC deal. ESPN does NOT hate OSU or the B1G....find something else to get mad about.
. I don't trust them and think they will screw us (tOSU) if they have a chance to.
2014 disagrees with you.
Really? You're honestly going to argue Bama isnt an NFL machine? Had Moses committed to someone like Ole Miss I would get what you're saying but he committed to the only school that rivals OSU(in the last several years) at getting guys into the league.
You're right, Bama sucks at sending guys to the league.
Changed my mind
VERY well said.
Why do those games get free passes but we penalize the SEC for UT and Auburn?
Because it makes it easier to say the B1G is better if we ignore results we don't like. Like you said, it's too early to pick best at anything right now. The best player, best team, best conference, etc...the sample size is just too small right now.
Edit: Jackson at #1
MVP = Most VALUABLE Player.
While JT is indeed MVP worthy, Jackson is far more valuable in terms of where they would be without him. JT is working with 4 and 5 star players, Jackson is working with mostly 3 star players and looking out of this world doing it. I
If not for Jackson I would agree with the OP, but as of now it's gotta be Jackson at #2 and JT at #2.
Might want to slow your roll man, the writers are quite aware what division NDSU is in. It's not the first time, nor will it be the last, that an FCS school gets points in the AP poll.
I think people are a little too high on Herman. He's only been a HC one season. What if Houston implodes and loses 4-5 games this year? People were high on Charlie Strong, Ty Willingham, Brady Hoke, etc and look what happened. IMO, you really can't throw a HC in the "Top 10" arena until they've been on the job more than a few seasons.
7) Can you believe what (insert some analyst who said mean things) said about us? What a hack!
Yes because vandy and Kentucky are such great teams. Lol
And so are Purdue, and Indiana, and Minnesota, and Rutgers, and Maryland.
What's your point?
Sec had favorable matchups in the bowls last year. Auburn got to play in their backyard. Before the bowls, even the espn hacks including finebaum said the sec were down last year.
I'm so tired of hearing the "favorable matchups" crap. They, the SEC, do NOT determine the bowl match ups. Make all the excuses you want, but more often than not, the SEC backs it up on the field when it matters.
