I mean, it's not as if he's been working out at the Woody, participating in Spring Practice, wearing a headset and actively engaged with Meyer during the Spring Game, and going to Washington, DC with the team.

Good God there's some righteuos A-holes on this site.

Given the tone of your responses to some posts in this thread, you might want to take a look at yourself before calling others "righteous A-holes."

Just curious, what reason would Ohio State provide to eBay for shutting down sales of items by someone that legally owns them?

Look at Michigan immediately before Bo became coach.

From 1951 to 1968 they were 93-68-4 (4-12-2 against Michigan St and 6-12 against Ohio State).  They won 1 Big Ten title in 1964.

Money in the Big Ten Conference for athletics is in the $ millions.  Money in the Big Ten related to research is in the $ Billions.

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), the academic consortium of the universities in the Big Ten Conference plus a former conference member, the University of Chicago. CIC members conduct a combined total of ~$8 billion in funded research.

This, alone is why the concept of relegation for the Big Ten does not work.

only Seniors get rings?

All players get rings, but believe I recall reading that after the tats for memorabilia issue, rings and other items are kept by OSU until the players leave the program.

Edit: I found an article regarding Ohio State keeping things until players leave the program:

From the article:

Going forward, OSU will limit the opportunity for athletes to take home their memorabilia. Smith said OSU will store memorabilia for the players and give it to them when they leave the university.
“We retain a lot of things, so we build a locker room in our equipment room,” Smith said. “So for certain jerseys and helmets, we keep those here until you graduate or your eligibility expires because, you know, somebody may leave and we give them their stuff.”

That is my favorite statement she makes for entertainment. Why the hell does it matter if you are in the news? If you were royalty of some kind I could see mentioning it but who gives a flying rats ass about people on the news.

It's ironic that she wasn't really "in the news" until now.  Now, she's in the news on most every channel, and news website.

Have I been heated and said things I wish I hadn't in many situations? Absolutely.

But, she took it to a place that was uncalled for.  No need to bring up the (assumed) educational background, teeth and weight of the person. That has absolutely nothing to do with the situation at hand.

If she has an issue with the towing policies, etc., complain about that. If she has an issue with fees, complain about that. If she has an issue with the paperwork required, complain about that. And, those issues are not, likely, anything that the cashier controls--but I can see her not thinking about that in the heat of the moment.

She comes across as very elitist and entitled, feeling that she is better than a person who is just trying to do their job--collect payments, and check paperwork, so that she can release the car to the owner--because that person has an assumed lesser educational background, is not on TV, has worse teeth, and is overweight.   That is where I have a problem with it, not that she lost her cool, which we have all done.

Kinda surprising given they have no actual evidence he pulled the trigger, their case for the OL murder is completely based on circumstantial evidence.

Under the the "joint venture" law in the state, all three suspects can be found guilty even if prosecutors can't prove who shot Lloyd.

Not a fan of these.

The brown jersey with the orange numbers is not a good look to my eyes. The 'Browns' on the pants looks ridiculous. And, I'm not a fan of the brown jersey/brown pants, orange jersey/orange pants, orange jersey/brown pants, brown jersey/orange pants combinations.

Overall it is a downgrade from what they had previously, to my eyes.
