I'm close with someone who is a leader for an alumni club. The reasons that they're complaining are plentiful. You have the overall dissatisfaction with things that the university is doing, Campus Partners, privatizing parking, etc. The alumni groups are also being told what they can and cannot do in regards to usage of the words Ohio State, Buckeyes, Scarlet and Gray, and the letter O. I think anything they want to do has to be approved by someone. While I get the whole protecting the brand thing I think that the university is getting too big for it's own good. They feel like they're not missing out by alienating a bunch of alumni. We'll see how it plays in the long run.
I don't think they were ever not allowed. Pryor's ban was given because he didn't stay and accept the NCAA punishment that he would've received at the beginning of the 2011 season.
Stop doing this Earle
Haikus are not helping us
We have all lost now
Although I would turn forum voting off
That's fine. I normally neutral vote anything you say anyways.
Alum after losing to Barf...
Now you're just hurting my feelings...
Thanks. That was my intent. Although a good weekly column on Nascar would give you the opportunity to present your opinion based on observations and supporting facts, and then we could all disagree with it and downvote your post. That hasn't happened recently has it?
Everyone gets UV, except the guy that wants to start a weekly NAPCAR thread.
We deserve a better parody account.
The solution is so simple I'm shocked neither of you two has seen the light. I present the designated free throw shooter. You have one player that is allowed to come on and shoot free throws in place of your worst FT shooter. If he makes it he is allowed to be substituted out, but if he misses he has to stay in the game until the next dead ball.
I remember him getting in fight with the offensive coordinator when they were on the Oilers staff I think. What a competitor.
I figured the big news would be the new replacement for Birm.
As did 95% of 11W.
How about the Escorts?
You're correct. It's not similar at all. What's the enrollment at the MAC schools compared to McComb, Leipsic, Pandora-Gilboa, and Vanlue? Those are teams that would probably all be in the bottom division no matter how many the OHSAA created. What does the strength of the two conferences have to do with anything anyways? That's like saying only B1G players can play in the NFL. Furthermore, the number of titles that the BVC has is in no way indicative of whether or not one offensive tackle from the conference will be successful at Ohio State.
I think Mr. Cupp is facing a tremendous uphill climb, but to simply discount his abilities based on where he went to high school is silly. After all, our offensive line coach went to Fostoria St. Wendelin, and they don't even have 20 kids on their football team most years.
Agreed. Mark Titus is currently unemployed and has a twitter following 10 times the size of Beau. That would've been huge news.
I don't think bringing Bishop on is going to expand the brand of 11W as his appeal is somewhat limited in my opinion.
