For what it's worth, I will pass along one thing I am aware of with Bobby Knight.  After Fred Taylor suffered a brain aneurysm in 1996, he lived in  Mill Run Gardens & Care Center, until his death in 2002.  Bobby Knight regularly visited Fred Taylor throughout his time there and provided the financial support for Fred Taylor's care there. 

My Grandfather was at this facility off and on between 1996 and 2000, and Bobby Knight would stop and talk and spend time with my Grandfather, when he was there.  My family and I had the opportunity to speak with Coach Knight on several occasions while there, as well, and he was very nice in the conversations I had with him.

So, while much of his behavior is well documented, I did want to share a different side of him that I have personally seen, and been made aware of, FWIW.

Things like this make me despise our "fanbase" sometimes. 

I just have to say, it is pathetic when adult men resort to calling a college kid names because Ohio State football is so significant in their lives.  Not only is it pathetic, but your life straight up sucks. 

I agree with your comments completely.

I sat next to the family section at the Fiesta Bowl, and was completely disgusted by the comments Ohio State "fans" were making to, and in front of the families of the players and coaching staff.

Sadly, that is just the most recent example of this kind of thing I can point to.

Many Ohio State fans can be better--much  better!

Very odd situation. 

From the story: "It is not yet known the exact bar where the attack took place. A spokeswoman for Columbus police told NJ Advance Media the department did not have an immediate record of the incident, but were aware of Lee's tweets regarding it."

And, "Eventually bouncers pushed Lee outside the bar."

Yes, it's horrible to have a two-time Big Ten QB of the year, and 2016 Silver Football award winner as the QB at Ohio State.

In your Washington example I believe it was their horrible non-conference schaedule that received criticism, more so than their conference schedule.
