This guy is a fucking nut job. I've seen some twitter d-bags before but this guy...wow. I might need to take some time off the internets today.
I think we're past TatGate, folks.
Being the undisputed National Champion helps put the nail in that coffin
There's my serial downvoter. Good to see you're alive and well!
I've never told anyone in this site to f*ck off. Not once. You must have me confused with someone else. I have, on the other hand, been told to f*ck on multiple occasions by multiple posters.
I really wasn't going to chime in on this other than my lighthearted comment above, but most of the time I turn "hostile" is after I've been called an asshole, told to f*ck off, called an ESPN employee, called a michigan or PSU fan, or been labeled an OSU hater. I've admitted MANY times that my tone does me no favors, but when people pretend to know what I'm about and personally attack me, when they really don't have the slightest clue...well I'm only human.
Only 95%? I guess I'm not trying hard enough ;)
Being born in Kettering is more of a technicality...the hospital he was born in was located in Kettering, but the family lived in Centerville.
Exactly. That's my biggest fear this year. While having three Heisman caliber QBs is a blessing, it can also be a curse as it could cause the starter to play less aggressive for fear of making a mistake...which itself leads to mistakes.
You don't think losing the leadership of Craft and Smith is a big deal?
Well, she was raped.
That being said, there is at least one witness that came forward who said she overreacted and blew the whole thing out of proportion.
Davey Boy - Blah, Blah, Blah. You can keep pretending you know who I am or what I'm about, but you will continue to be wrong. Either way, it's pretty sad you let someone you will never meet, whose only interaction with you is on a freaking sports forum, get you so worked up.
Have a lovely day!
Your little rant above is exhibit A on how you're twisting and distorting my previous opinions.
And who cares, other than you? I happily admitted I was wrong about the situation once actual facts came out. Do you get some kind of perverted joy in beating the dead and buried horse?
Are you obsessed with me or something? You create an account three weeks ago, and out of ALL of your posts only ONE is not directed at me in some way.
And you can say I'm wrong all you want, it doesn't make you right. But please, keep twisting and distorting the context of what I'm trying to say.
Earthoid - Thats the thing. If you read most of my posts on the Weber issue, I was simply offering a "what if" viewpoint. I never said definitively that Meyer was in the wrong...I said multiple times that we don't have enough info to make that call, BUT, we did have enough info to pause and say hey, there might be something to these allegations. We've all heard the saying "where there's smoke there's fire", it just turns out, fortunately, in this case that the fire was nothing more that a match.
You mentioned that most rational people would let the situation play itself out...and that's true. But that's also part of the reason I was playing devil's advocate in a way...rationality goes both ways. You can't, on one hand, say our staff would never do this and act as if this is the only rational thought while on the other hand admonishing others who were open to the fact that something bad could have went down.
I think it just means that we're mature adults.
You are likely one of the mature adults you speak of, but read through that thread and tell me how mature some of those people who were throwing insults at me are.
No we are most certainly not...it's called free thinking. I never said what I "assumed" to have happened was actually what happened...only that it was certainly a possibility given the info we had at the time. I was "suspicious" because the circumstances were suspicious due to the limited nature of the info we had...suspicions that were shared by many others. If you want to continue to single me out while ignoring the opinions of others who felt the same way then "it would take somebody far better than me to help you understand" how absurd that is....you give me way too much credit.
You did the same thing....you just chose to "assume" that everything was on the up and up. I stated all along that I could be wrong(and would admit it if proof came to light...which I did) and neither side had enough info to make a concrete case for their position. Given the limited info we had, it was just as easy to assume something shady happened as it was to assume everything was handled properly.
And show me when I have attacked Meyer's character...show me. Just because I thought this situation MAY have been handled poorly(I was wrong as it turns out) doesn't mean I thought less of Meyer or any of the coaches. Recruiting is a cutthroat business...I was taking the position that IF this happened in a shady manner that we should be above this and not make excuses for what happened(which many were doing).
Actually, I've been hear all along, but I'm glad you missed me.
And why not call out the MANY other posters on 11w who also felt that the circumstances COULD look "shady" given the limited info we had? I was wrong in my assumption and it appears Meyer was also blindsided by Drayton's decision. I've moved on...but apparently you feel the need to get personal and bring me into an argument that's been dead for weeks.
Edit - Comment not even 60 seconds old and a member of the hive throws a dv...lol
No one is calling her a liar, but as others have stated on here who have first hand experience with PTSD, sometimes these individuals misinterpret situations due to their condition. From the unbiased(presumed) witness account...this sounds just as plausible as the version she reported. This doesn't make her a bad person at all, but at the very least it should give the players the benefit of the doubt.
O'Brien also set the program back several years with the sanctions that came under his watch.
I still can't figure out why Brad Edwards is still employed by ESPN. He was hired to be the resident BCS guru...aka computer nerd. Now that the BCS is gone, his contributions are becoming more and more ridiculous as he can't use his computer formulas to help with his stories.
Squirrel - it's obvious we don't see eye to eye on this but it's refreshing to be able to have a conversation that doesn't turn to personal insults when one doesn't agree with the other. While I might not completely agree with you, you've said some things that have made me look at this a bit differently. Props to you for being able to be an adult.
My hairs not that long
Sure you did. You said no one was jumping to my defense. I pointed out that many other feel the same way and the proof you wanted was on other threads. You then pulled the whole "if others do it" argument. That's the very definition of a straw man...changing the argument to one you can more easily defend.
and stop with the shady crap
That's why I used quotation marks...I'm not saying it's indeed shady but it's the easiest word to use in the situation to convey what could have happened.
