I don't think ESPN hates my team. I think they have a major conflict of interest that keeps them from reporting fairly on my team vs. other teams.  Cam Newton vs. tat-gate for example.

It's difficult to decide who "the worst" fans in the Big Ten are, but the data provided by each member institution is telling in its own way.

When it comes to the worst fans, my vote goes to Penn State

In 2005, Penn State students bombarded the Ohio State band with so many projectiles, including balloons filled with urine, that the band did not make the trip two years later.

Pat Summerall, but not for football. He and Ken Venturi were the voice of golf for many years on CBS and they were great.

I'll tell you why I hate Cowherd. The year Joey Votto of the Reds won NL MVP Cowherd was talking about how Votto shouldn't have been a candidate. His reasoning was that Votto's numbers were inflated because GABP is a launching pad yada yada. The guys on Cincinnati's ESPN affiliate called him out because all of Votto's offensive numbers were actually better on the road. The next day Cowherd went on a rant about "those guys are local hacks, I have a national show, Ohio is the armpit of America, there's a reason it's called flyover country, your teams haven't won championships in 50 years". So basically he went full asshole because he didn't do his research.

So, can someone explain how the Cleveland Glenville Tarblooders were left off that list?

Coaching staff recruits player hard to the end and a couple of days after signing day said recruits position coach leaves for another job: that's shady recruiting. Coaching staff recruits player but when the recruit gets hurt or coaching staff finds someone they like better they don't pull the offer or hell even return recruits calls: totally ok. As Bugs Bunny would say "that's rich".

Totally agree. Pardon my language, but how the fuck do you "lose contact" with someone you offered and accepted a commitment from?

I did enjoy this spin from Ace:

If there's a positive to be found in these two cases, it's that Harbaugh never formally pulled either player's scholarship, and both opened up their recruitments with enough time left in the process to find suitable landing spots.

and this comment sums up their delusion:

As for Harbaugh it's hard to believe he just cuts off contact with players. He's the definition of in your face..
