Jim Popp has been around a LONG TIME! He has seen a lot and I trust his opinion.
LOL at everyone who wants to say tattoogate was all Tressel's fault. If you only knew.
You were right. Apparently she's working on a book and crazy fans are a part of it.
Interviewed the chief of Police at OSU to talk about the 2002 riots after the UM game.
Perhaps the original poster shouldn't have personally took it upon himself to contact her via Facebook and basically told her she was lower than a prostitute.
Raw deal is an understatement.
Not sure how to send messages on this board. Do not come here often. Found a link to this story on one of the other boards. Either on the preferred news site Bucknuts or the more entertaining Scout.com site. You can find me on FB and Twitter too.
Colerain as I said, I have NOTHING to hide. If you are ever interested in hearing more I'm open. It helps somewhat heal the deep wounds created by those daggers they thrust in my back when people actually understand how I got into the position I'm in currently.
I used to enjoy taking them!
Yes he did! He's a better man than me and I'll never be able to do what he did. Not in this lifetime. I would've took those SOB's down with me.
It worked out great in getting Urban Meyer for sure. After taking photos of Urban Meyer and Chris Leak holding up the NC Trophy my first words out of my mouth walking off the turf in Glendale were, "I want that guy or someone like him as our head coach when Tressel is done".
Yeah, they had an asset in me. I was doing great things and headed for more, but a few individuals were jealous of me and saw me as a threat to their business so they masterminded a plan to cut out all photographers and when I fought it that's when things turned beyond UGLY. They stripped everything away from me and in the process made up lies about me, slandered me, threatened me and just downright treated me like an abused dog. All for questioning their shady and out right back door maneuvers to orchestrate their plan. It got really bad and I have all documents saved in case it ever went the legal route. Still may some day who knows. You're welcome to check them out anytime.
I'm not the best Buckeye to come out of Hawai'i but I am almost 100% sure I'm the only person originally from Hawai'i to play on the Buckeye football team.
Yes. I have nothing to hide so I don't make it a point to conceal my identity on message boards.
I found out she contacted many of my teammates as well. She has "stories" from before the Tressel era. Like I said, she did her research and surprised me with the information she was tossing out there. Some stuff that I had actually forgotten about but was reminded of it. It was rather uncanny sitting there listening to this reporter come up with stuff you thought was sealed in the confines of the WHAC etc. So, she was digging for stuff besides Tatgate and probably why she contacted players prior to Tressel.
Yes, there is a very REAL love hate relationship I have with Ohio State. It is true "these things" happen all over the country and have been for a long time. It's inbred in the culture and has been long before I was playing and will continue. There are people who should've been held accountable for what happened that didn't and that bothers me and others. I don't keep bringing it to light but when it comes to light I say what I do. What has made me so angry? A lot of things. My personal story has been told to quite a few already and you may here about it someday. There isn't a single person who disagrees that I was shit on by my University. If you had been treated the way I have been you'd feel the same way. If you didn't then you have NO RESPECT for yourself as a person. I can honestly say I don't care either way anymore. I like to see the young men do well and the coaches succeed but it doesn't bother me one bit when things do not go well. I should be pissed off and cussing left and right when we lose or play like shit. But, I simply do not care anymore because of how I've been treated by a few people there (liars and snakes). They have no clue on how to be LOYAL and support their own. How firm thy friendship my ass! They can't even practice what they preach.
I will step down now.
Peace and aloha.
Bucked Up I have no clue who you are and what your role is with 11W but you did handle the situation pretty poorly. That being said, I will make this short and sweet.
She showed up at my door back in 2011 or whatever it was and I wasn't happy. After a cooling off period and a day or two I agreed to meet with her. I was curious to what she was asking, who else she was talking to and what did she really know? Hell, and I wasn't turning down a free meal at Outback Steakhouse either paid for by The Mouse himself! Outback Special it was.
Here is where I will keep it really short and sweet. She not only asked about Tatgate but she asked and brought up stuff (names, places of business, associations etc etc) all associated with the program that I was extremely surprised she had found out. Where or who she got it from I don't know but it was the kind of stuff you find with "dead bodies". She got good information. Solid information. She's NOT A HACK! She did her work and she found out shit you people would've been surprised to know about back then because it was all stuff that usually stays within the walls of the program. If she could have gotten anyone to go on the record the story would've been huge. Tatgate was NOTHING! I will end it with this. Just be thankful it was just Tatgate that we were sanctioned for and that everyone held their ground and didn't go on the record.
That is all.
Marcus has been instructed by Ohio State to stop signing the photo. You can see that Sports Possessions has cancelled Marcus from their signing list on Feb. 22nd. Give me a beer and some popcorn for this one...
Meh, not that great! If the other video was a 10 (it was) this was a 5!
I think it's very unprofessional to put the 11W logo on these GIFS when you know you do not own the rights to the video clips.
Derek, meet my gunner Tito Paul!
Yeah the national media is covering them a lot lately. Better hope it all remains to be only positive coverage instead of the coverage that invaded campus a few years ago.
