I'm headed down to Cincy for the All-Star festivities, this takes it up a notch. Makes sense that in 2015 you can't have an All-Star anything without Urban weighing in, can't wait! #votefrazier
Kip is a lock, he's not going to start but he's leading
the world the league in WAR and the tribe has to have someone in!
I understand, to a point, that fans of a team and university will defend and support their people. But I don't hear OSU fans falling all over themselves to support or defend Art Schlichter. Maybe I'm wrong and there's a subculture of Schlichter defenders out there, but I haven't seen them, certainly not on this site. I do understand that we live in a grown up and complex world where things aren't always apples to apples. My point is simply that comparing the offenses of lying to the NCAA about trading some gear for some tattoos (which is not a crime) to lying about child rape (which is a crime) is not a strong comparison.
This is horrible, I feel terrible for him and their kids.
I can't believe I have to say this but this comparison is apples vs oranges. Lying to the NCAA isn't on the same planet as child rape.
I just threw up in my mouth and my eyes are bleeding.
I'm hoping some other members of the commentariat can weigh in as well but I thought the campus ban was from Ohio State not the NCAA.
I know a lot of people feel this way about baseball and it is certainly a valid and understandable opinion. My question is with your last statement about baseball blaming themselves for their state of affairs. What state of affairs are you referring to? I have a guess or two but I hate to speculate.
I love baseball and keep up with it daily. I love that there's little overlap between the baseball season and college football season, give me something to do pay attention to most of the year.
I don't see how he ever lives to witness his induction into the HOF, much less gets reinstated by Rob Manfred. MAYBE after he's long dead he'll get in... maybe.
With all due respect (yes I dropped that, perhaps a bit to cliche) it seems you're the one politicizing the comment. I fail to see what hate has to do with politics. But your overall point is well taken considering this is a sports blog.
If memory serves I believe his school (Akron St Vincent - St Mary's) made him cover his tattoos during games.
What about losing his job as head football coach of The Ohio State University? Seems like a pretty significant sanction to me.
Thank you Hodge, took the words right out of my keyboard.
I second Bodega, great beer selection.
Wow this is so true. Cueto can bunt a little, that's about it. If Billy Hamilton could ever learn to bunt his freakin' OBP would be elevendibillion.
This is a great post. What a lot of people seem to miss is that no one is taking Phillips or Bruce's contracts without some incentive (ie: Cueto). Cueto is GONE after this season, so if some July the Reds still suck Walt has to trade him away to get some young arms.
I'm loving this kid. Welcome to Buckeye Nation!
While I treasure The Situational each and every time Ramzy graces us with it's poetry, my vote has to go with the Dj and the Skull Session. It's the engine that drives me to 11W every damn day.
I'm still at work in Dublin and can see it out the window. Perfect time to drop my favorite big word. That is one hell of a conflagration.
Think he'll ever live that down? Maybe if Lebron brings a title to Cleveland.
Man of Steel in 2013
I was thinking the conflict lies with Superman. The fight between Superman and General Zod in the 1st movie (well... the last movie) caused a lot of destruction and loss of life. I think the world is split between loving and fearing Superman and Batman takes up the mantle of those who fear him.
