I logged on just to post this exact gif until I had scrolled down far enough to see that you already had.
This is ridiculous. If somebody had told me last week that Lindsey and Grimes were going to commit at the same time but the only catch was that Smith was going to tweet something "stupid," I would have responded "Let him tweet 8374923 stupid things, it's obviously working."
I love Ohio State football and the good portion of the fanbase, but it's shit like this that made me abandon Hineygate. A bunch of grown men/women finding reasons to be upset (jealous) with people performing admirably at their job (which they wish they had). Coach Smith just experienced one of the most successful days of his young career and people are posting MULTIPLE TIMES defending their opinion of him that is "he isn't very good at his job." WHAT (IF ANYTHING) WILL EVER MAKE YOU HAPPY??
I for one hope that neither of these young athletes see their own fanbase talking this way about their future position coach. Smith is doing his job, his way. If you think you can do better, go do it. If you want to talk to him regarding your discontent, write him a letter. I simply cannot believe how far people are going to prove that he isn't a good coach or deserving of his position. You call yourself Buckeye fans? We could have a head coach who is being featured in shitty rap videos or a social media team that pumps out inaccurate propaganda. You would think with threads like this that we hadn't just gone 50-4 since Urban's arrival.
There is so much more I could say, but I fear that my rant will fall on deaf ears. I'm sorry for those who were downvoted into oblivion for defending one of our own. The popularity of this site is starting to attract some rather dense people who think they are better suited to handle the pressure of coaching at a tier one collegiate football program than the ones who are already doing a damn fine job at it.
I usually don't post in response to these types of arguments - it makes one come off as hypocritical.
Though I have to admit, it makes me feel much better in this exact case to at least see these thoughts put into words on a screen. If I have wasted your time I am sorry, but there are some amazing contributors to this site that deserve better than to have to sift through some of the bullshit that is being posted.
tl;dr - some of you need to practice what you preach and grow the hell up. Call me self-righteous, I don't care. I love this site and some of you are trying your hardest to "watch it burn"
