Good luck in all future endeavors Danny and thanks for all the great work!
Looking forward to the reaction from the Hokester.
Alabama will handle their business easily. Saban knows that a big win will mean a lot for his team starting the season. Robinson left, right, and up the middle will not suffice. Unless other playmakers step up big time, no chance for ttun.
Drive, drive on down the field....hum..hum...hum..
Men of the scarlet and gray.....hum...hum....hum..
Don't let them through that line...hum...hum...hum..
We've got to win this game today ...hum...hum....come on dude, sing it!
@CincyOSU - Would you rather see the Clery Act enacted on the school basically crippling its ability to educate to the point of its demise or would you rather the death penalty be brought to the football program? At least the U could continue to be an institution of higher learning without a football team. Understood it would probably not be either or but it helps to view it that way IMO.
Posted this in Buckshots and wanted to put it here in regards to other comments. Sorry if it bothers anyone. Basically refers to the possibility of PSU being brought down by the Clery Act. I feel the death penalty would be the best option at that point. The Clery Act would cripple the institution of learning.
My concern is that everyone is in line with "our penalty will be nothing compared to the next entities penalty, no need for us to do anything". And no one does a thing and it will all be forgotten. Nice recruiting class, football on Saturday afternoon, record contributions, all quickly brushed under the rug and forgotten again! I would rather see the death penalty on the football team than the clery act enacted. At least the U can survive that and education can continue
The "violation" is that the people in charge of athletics, the AD, the coach, for now address those two, did not react to the actions of the assistant coach known to be violating little boys. The assistant was "retired" swiftly in 1999 and given university perks to go quietly. To keep it very simple to these two items only shows the direct intent to cover up the "violations" to protect the image of the football program and the coach/administrators jobs. If this isn't Lack of Institutional Control along with failure to adhere to ethics given the extent and magnitude of this atrocity then what is? The NCAA should fold its tent and remove itself from authority if it fails to act against PSU. I would say the same if it was OSU or anyone else.

Go to any PSU site and they are still defending Paterno, the school, and that they will not receive NCAA punishment as no violations regarding rules were broken. Guess protecting the football team, the university, and the coach from public humiliation and the most damning press possible isn't LOIC after all.
Could be wrong but not one commentor, all seemingly PSU fans, ever brought up the fact that the thought/sight of anything PSU related could possibly be considered distasteful to those not drinking Paterno piss. Shows how far from the reality of the situation of devastation to lives these "fans" are. Exactly why the harshest punishment the NCAA could possibly hand out is necessary. Sorry to those that think otherwise, but without it, business as usual will prevail in good old Happy Valley.
I do remember how annoyed I was at the fact young boys were raped and it could have been addressed and some could have been spared. But the university brass including the head coach chose not to tarnish their rep and allow it to continue. This is a situation unlike any other, hopefully we never see another in our lifetime. If any situation deserves the death penalty it is this one, regardless of discipline outlines. It is the university at fault. The current team, coaches, etc. are innocent bystanders that will be unfortunately derailed by it but at times life is very unfair. The absolute message needs sent, period.
Really do not get how a kid committed to PSU for 2013 would do nothing less than run as far and as fast as possible to another school. There will be no bowls, scholarship reductions as bad as USC, along with other restrictions at best coming. That is if the death penalty is not enacted. On that note, I would get a kick out of a certain recruit committing there as opposed to ND which will most likely be his choice.
In order to say that PSU deserves no penalty is to say they would not have felt program crippling effects from a Sandusky indictment when it first became known. If it was found to have been covered up, it was soley for the purpose of avoiding that situation. Understand it is unfair for those currently with the team but to allow it to go unpunished is similarly unjust. Abhorrent crimes of all kinds are regularly tried decades later with harsh sentences imposed. And before anyone brings up the fact that this is criminal law, yes, the NCAA has nothing to do with criminal law enforcement but they do have a responsibility to enforce and promote a level playing field for universities and student athletes across the board regardless of the severity of the situation.
Wonder if it will be up with the other OSU stories on their website. Just looked and nothing there, unless I missed it. Imagine that.
Thank you Pam, that's called hitting the nail squarely on the head.
Now if someone will only sue Matt Hayes for the Enquirer-type pieces he puts out, the world would be a better place.
I really think UM can go 8-4. Granted they don't have the cupcake schedule this year but that coach can turn one of those close games into a win, can't he?
The van contains the three remaining fans of SEC teams that refuse to go to blogs and chats exhorting the majesty of the "SEC" as the ultimate conference. They will be taken into the swamps of Louisiana where they will become gator bait.
Could be somewhat worried about depth at his position. Also, he spent some time asking everyone what was being said about his commitment to OSU via twitter which seemed strange.
J. Bosa is asking for 3,000 followers on twitter. Help him out, spread the word Buckeye Nation. Show him the power of the force!
You will be a pleasure to watch and am so glad you came on board with the good guys. You will always have Buckeye Nation behind you forever. Good luck and welcome aboard!
Saturday, you do know it was a "throwing" scrimmage I assume. They hardly ran the ball due to that fact. Urban said post spring game that it in no way was how their offense would operate in 2012 and it was only for passing practice basically. Don't get too down. The ball will be ran plenty and Urban even said as much. Cheer up!
"Joey Bosa may have very well committed, will be interested to see if he says it out loud" per Mike Farrell tweet
Anzalone is a great, classy kid as well as a great football player. Doubt that he will be making any brash statements about victories to come.
Are you saying "Mark May wears womens underwear"? I did not know that "Mark May wears womens underwear", but I do now understand that "Mark May wears womens underwear".
