2) As I have stated before, NO ONE knows what actually happened behind the scenes. But lets look at what we do know

- Urban AND Drayton were working past midnight to convince Weber not to flip to UM

- Urban and Drayton made no mention of Drayton being in the running for another job

- Drayton takes the Bears job...conveniently after Weber signed his LOI.

- Weber tweets about being hurt...it's pretty obvious he was blindsided by this info, info that could have influenced his decision

- Weber's coach blows a gasket(understand why, but he handled it poorly)

One by one:

-Meyer, Drayton, Weber past midnight- we do not know the details of that conversation. Anything other than the facts they had a conversation to solidify the commitment would be speculation.

-Urban and Drayton- did not say anything about the possible coaching change. Well, they did, but we do not know to whom or the scope of what was said. Anything beyond that is speculation as well as to "why" they withheld information from the public..

-Drayton takes the Bears job...conveniently after his LOI The strike-through is yet again speculation on your part and it infers something shady. Keep to the facts.

-Weber tweets he is hurt. it's pretty obvious he was blindsided by this info No, it is not obvious. One can know something is going to happen and still be hurt by it. Once again that's the facts, the "why" (other than being hurt Drayton won't be there) and everything else is nothing but speculation, and it is unfair to put words into anyone's mouth, and even unfairer to make an accusation, however subtle it may have been made.

- Weber's coach blows a gasket- that's the only fact. We do not know if he was justified or not, but we do know he was uninformed at the time of the blown gasket.

Things still have not played out so I do not want to speculate. For now, I give Urban Meyer the benefit of the doubt, as I believe he has earned it, and I don't mean only with on the field stuff. I mean things like his leadership training/classes, wanting to pay it forward, taking seriously his family's demands and needs, the way he knits his guys closely, and emphasizes team unity... on and on. It seems contrary to what some people are saying about the guy with this whole Weber/Drayton fiasco. And that's what I mean by giving him the benefit of the doubt.

HAHAHAHAHHA! He looks like my 4 year old son when I tell him it is time to put the iPad down.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Unless they have update the rules, here is an excerpt from SBNation regarding rules :

This one is based on another rule that helps keep things orderly and gives defenses a fair shot at things.

With one exception, on any given pass play only eligible receivers can cross the line of scrimmage before either A) a pass crosses the line, or B) a defender touches the ball. The exception is on a forward pass that doesn't cross the line of scrimmage (like a screen or shovel pass). On such a play, the linemen can cross the line and be on their merry ways.

Hmmm, not only did we beat Wisconsin, but we beat the sanity out of many fans, apparently of both teams.

Comment 07 Dec 2014

tidefans.com I looked today, and it seems similar to 11w in the sense the Bama players (at least according to their own members) lurk there and the admin has a current ban on LSU fans posting, haha. Also there is a fair mix of opinions on the upcoming game. They also have a resident buckeye fan there who seems to be a fav, but he doesn't talk about OSU much. Would be a good place to have respectful discussion or lurk I think. I'd go to ESPN or something for trolling. Nothing but trolls on the ESPN sites. Also, a member there started a "Say Something Nice About Ohio State" thread and it ranged from funny sarcastic shit (like "Well, they gave us DePriest") to more serious ones.

The Titanic hit Cardale.

Cardale ate Gilbert Grape.

Cardale takes a knife to a gun fight...and wins.

Cardale made and lifted a rock even he could not lift.

Cardale went to Pamplona- bulls are extinct, sadly.

My Perception before 11W:

It never bothered me they wanted to dress up and show their fandom. Not my thing, but I don't blame them for wanting to relive their youth and/or express their fan spirit. That is how I see it and that's it. I watched the Browns growing up and I actually like the Dawg pound characters I would see on TV. I don't think it's as much an embarrassment there are middle-aged men doing this, as much as how they are representing themselves outside that's embarrassing to me. To each his own. There is something about wanting to relive your youth, connect with your childhood idols, whatever. Ever been to/see a comic book convention going on? Weird. But even then, to each his own, I don't judge. I believe the public assumption is they are fans, and not super or better than any other fan, they just have fun with their gig. Good for them. They are enjoying the Buckeyes just like we all do. They don't take themselves that seriously. 

Perception after joining 11W:

Now, honestly, I didn't have a problem with any of them until I joined 11w and read of their exploitation of other Buckeyes fans and those fans' love for Buckeye Nation. Now I kind of see them as the Ron Burgundy's of fans- thinking they are big shits, and "kind of a big deal, people know me." and I just laugh at their self-promotion whilst they ignore how ridiculous they are.

I hope Sunday is not another day that will live in infamy, for far lesser reasons.

Comment 26 Nov 2014

Thanks brother. I recall this time last year I was foolishly questioning the relevance of that school as well as the luster of this game. Then, some fellow 11 dubbers led me back to the path of hatred, and of course, then The Game happened. When Hoke went for it all- it's moments like that that make these games historical and memorable. Go Bucks!

He had a carton of Big League Chew on the line. You know how hard that is to come by?

Comment 24 Nov 2014

I don't buy it. This game is worthless win or lose? If I were a fan or player of that shit team, I couldn't think of ending the season any better than beating the B1G title hopefuls and ruining a shot (however remote) at the NC for the hated rivals. He says this only because he thinks they have no shot. If they were to win, his tune would change dramatically.

I worry about overlooking/disrespecting a desperate, hungry, pissed off team this weekend, and this game matters so much more than I would have given it credit for in recent years, and they, much like MSU will fight to the very end. I agree, however, nothing will save Hoke's job, but even he has something to fight for. 

Last thing while my stream of consciousness is still running: anyone who says shit like this is managing expectations- expect to lose so you are not disappointed if it happens, and elated if the unexpected occurs (see: Fans, Browns) I recall their fans even being elated with the close loss last year.

BUCKEYES, DEFEND! THE ENEMY IS COMING!
