The "idiots" on the 11W forums have also speculated the same things.

Stop looking for things that aren't there.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

even take it personally enough to attack.

Where have I personally attacked anyone??? I can point to countless times I have been attacked though. If you think it's a personal attack to use logic, rather than bias or emotion, when formulating an opinion then that's your issue.

Boren was not on the ticker and was not nearly close to the amount of coverage/articles Kalis had.

So let me get this straight...when you see something with your own eyes, it's fact. But when someone else, whose opinion differs from yours, sees something with their own eyes, it doesn't matter? I see the game you're playing...

Either way, that's a pretty big news story. So tell me, how is reporting on this, even for the alleged three days you claim, an attack on OSU or proof that ESPN has it out for OSU?

Also, Kalis was a high school student.

What does that have to do with anything? In case you have missed it, recruiting is a pretty big deal to most fan bases nowadays.

Report it one thing (verify it another), but the drum beat was ridiculous.

So the outlets that actually INVESTIGATED and broke 90% of the stories are OK in your book, but since ESPN reported the same thing that every other outlet did it's concrete proof that their plan is to destroy the OSU program?

The whole deal was over the top, spearheaded by ESPN

How can you spearhead something that a rival outlet broke? If you want to hate ESPN for shoddy reporting and fact checking so be it, but every other outlet should get the same criticism.

You can continue to think I have a love affair with ESPN if that helps you ignore the logic of my arguments but that doesn't change the fact...yes I said fact, that ESPN has no interest in trying to cripple the OSU football program. There are literally dozens of reason to hate on ESPN, but it's beyond absurd to think there is any corporate wide mandate to hate OSU. You can't take a few instances and hold on to them for years, while ignoring everything else that counters your belief...that's the very definition of confirmation bias.

For the 100000th time, I am not defending ESPN.

And from the looks of it, there are a lot of people on here who are also getting tired of the constant belly aching about every perceived slight towards OSU as if it's some part of a master plan.

There are PLENTY of reasons to hate ESPN...many of which I probably agree with. The problem is the constant need of some to look for/create reasons that ESPN "hates" Ohio State.

First off, probably 80% of those came prior to this year, and most of those were directed at those who personally attacked me for daring to go against the hive. I'd be happy to let a mod show my voting record for 2015...it's probably 90/10 or 85/15.

Second, that is not the definition of a serial downvoter. A serial downvoter dv's EVERY post a certain user posts. A serial downvoter goes through past comment just to dv said poster, without even reading the post.

But thanks for sharing.

Oh it just amuzes me. I'm not exactly one to talk though...back in the day I used to throw out downvotes like it was my job.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

Confirmation. Bias.

There are literally DOZENS of other examples that paint OSU in a positive light.

But lets just touch on the two examples you gave -

1) The was also massive interest when Boren left UM to come to OSU

2) The stacked raffle story came from SI, ESPN just reported it.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

The problem is confirmation bias usually beats out logic so people only see what they want.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

Oh. My. God.

This madness has to stop. There is NO conspiracy to make OSU look inferior. Confirmation bias is what keeps this flame burning.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

It seems ESPN has finally acknowledged what we all know to be true

Or, they just finally updated their rankings. Nothing to see here.

Comment 29 Jul 2015

ESPN has updated their rankings...OSU is #1 with 4 B1G teams in the top 11.

Comment 28 Jul 2015

Personally, I saw nothing wrong with what you said. In fact, that's probably the right attitude...who cares about other school's recruits? If an OSU target picks another school, wish him luck and move on...no need to bash the kid.

Comment 28 Jul 2015

WHY WHY WHY do some people on here feel the need to bash a KID for making a college choice that isn't OSU?

Comment 20 Jul 2015

Go look at Scout, Rivals, and 247...you'll see a very similar breakdown.

Comment 20 Jul 2015

Your post is misleading...saying "Feldman at it Again" implies he is back to his typical OSU bashing. That's not the case here...surprisingly.
