I would hold my tongue if I were you, those are some insulting assumptions to make.  It is indeed quite likely that he will never get the position back, however it was the man's dream job and he was likely just settling in for the rest of his career as Head Director only to be violently uprooted and pinned with a whole bunch of crap that he could not reasonably be held accountable for.  

I can't put words in his mouth, but he was wronged and I imagine he wants to put up a fight so he can look back and know that he didn't just sit back and take this disgrace without defending himself.

Urban even admits that Fickell called it right (he didn't see Lee as an Ohio State caliber player at first).  Now we will be seeing him on Sundays before too long... But I'm still not sure where he would fit in a defense around 220 lbs?

What angle can they possibly be pulling? They have been mediocre at best, have had buffoons like Golson and Te'o bringing bad publicity to the program, and got whipped by 'Bama, all in the past few years.  I know not everyone will see the true guiding light of Urban's system but seriously, how are they out-recruiting OSU's program right now? We're so hot right now.

Outcome of the tournament this year so far has been pretty disappointing.  Exclusively highly seeded teams or teams with great basketball pedigrees have made the Sweet 16.  Where's Cinderella? :(

Well played, the "Michigan Man" trying to appear brainy by quoting such things can be repaid in full, without being so pretentious.  Quote all you want, still have to recruit and win.  

Comment 07 Feb 2015

Yes I graduated from Davidson in 2011, finishing up my last year at OSU right now.  Good to see folks from Hilliard doin' work on the site!

Comment 07 Feb 2015

Very fun to watch, nice work. Reminds us all how badly Corey Smith wants to be here when he's getting blocks like that... good lord.  Darron Lee lighting up Keenan Reynolds still has to be my favorite, he has quickly become a favorite of mine.  What a great year!

Things are constantly changing in recruiting, but who would you peg as the remaining offensive linemen we get by February?

And additionally, if we get two more OL that will be nine in the last two classes, could that scare some away for 2016? (We have so many Ohio studs to sign at that spot!)

Comment 11 Aug 2014

Saw plenty of pretentious signs from NU students on College Gameday back when we played last season, however I'm sure they don't even know how to give other fans crap about football.

Comment 02 Aug 2014

Where exactly is the Ackerman rd location where they practice so much?  Unless I'm thinking of a wrong Ackerman road, it is a pretty small road and nowhere on it have I ever seen fields where the team could practice.  It's also extremely close to the WHAC.  Can anyone shed some light on this situation?

Comment 28 Jul 2014

One important aspect  to me seems to be that (due to the time the complaint was made) the band could not be investigated when it was in session.  Witnessing the entire organization in action for a few months as opposed to when it is not even running would give a much better picture of how things were going, and how the culture was.  It's pretty important to be involved or embedded in a group for a significant time before you make a sweeping declaration about a culture problem.

And on a separate note, the Dispatch has done a very poor job of balanced reporting on this entire ordeal.  It has flipped to flat-out muckraking in a lot of ways.  There are a ton of testimonials coming from other news outlets that at least depict some other stories and experiences in the band as opposed to taking off with a single narrative and assuming the absolute worst.

I appreciate the message 11W continues to push about how schools owe it to college football and to their base of support to keep things fun and user friendly.  If institutions stay out of touch with reality for too long they could really start to damage the beautiful thing that is college football.  

Comment 08 Jul 2014

I am very ready for a new receiver(s) to rise.  Urban has been killing it on the recruiting trail but I am getting kind of tired of only being able to say that players have a lot of potential.  Some of these 2014 guys should make some serious noise.

Unfortunately that is a tall tale.  It was written for Men's Glee and was then voted the alma mater out of the blue even though the writer thought it was too depressing.  We all still love it though.
