This is exactly what I was afraid of and why I created a forum topic on whether Urban should address this with more than just a one sentence one liner. Basically he allowed this no name coach to "frame the conversation" around a broad topic that quiet frankly has the SCum fan base up in arms and almost 2/3's of the OSU fan base. He should have gotten out in front of this and spoke to it, now this idiot is creating public opinion. DEFINITELY not trying to tell Urban how to do his job, because he makes 1000 times what I do, but...this just seems like this would be Public Relations 101 on his part...maybe I'm wrong and have ZERO idea what I'm talking about so please take my opinion with a grain of salt ha ha
Hmm, given what Cass Tech's coach is saying, does the question posed now take on a different spin?
I agree with this 1000%...if Weber wants him to address it publicly then sure and if not, move along because at that point it's clearly a non-issue. If the person involved is over it, then I suppose we all should be as well...
Definitely not asking if Meyer "owes" an explanation to anyone. The reason I asked "if he should address it at all"...I agree with what a lot of people are saying in the thread, I can see pros and cons for addressing it vs not addressing it. Like I said, in response to another post is I just hate seeing the conjecture out there without knowing all the facts one can't simply state a definitive opinion on the situation. I feel like everyone (including myself) is forming our opinions on emotion (how much we love our Buckeyes and want to see them do the "right" thing), it would be nice to know some of the facts before simply saying "I'm angry" or "I'm okay with it, it's a business". When moral questions are posed, I think we would all want the "facts" of the situation before weighing our personal morals against the situation Sorry to ramble, but hope it makes sense.
Yep, answers my question...I just hate all the conjecture out there
As a vet, on election day, it makes the years of my life I spent in the Army worth it....I hope everyone realizes how grateful we should be that we get to select the leaders of this great nation, there are MANY people across this world that would give anything to have this right that so many of us take for granted....
Have to admit, at least PSU fans and bloggers confirmed everything I've always thought about them.....most dillusional fan base in college sports. They'll never get it, it's kind of sad really.
Alex, you're killing us man, but I love your "teasers". Makes me want to keep checking 11W every day to see who the "flip" is or if it happens. My question is, IF the flip doesn't happen, will you still tell us who you were talking about?
I honestly wish twitter wouldn't allow you to contact people directly. It's like you are friends with the whole world and you have no choice who can contact you, make statements about you, or who can view your page. I liked this story, by man....did you have to do the multi color creepy photo on the front page of thee premier tOSU recruiting site of the creeper???
Done with recruiting...hows that for freaking out, following kids and what they'll do, what college will they go to, will they stay committed or de-commit, blah more trouble than it's worth, after two years of following recruiting I'M DONE!
I love this kid already.....the next few years for Buckeye Nation are going to be a amazing! Our defense is just going to be crazzzyyy!
If they had interviewed ANYONE else but the "son of a Spielman" I may agree with you, but this kid is more than likely going to be at tOSU and will be another great name to add to a established group (by the time this kid is on campus) of great players. Call it a hunch, but the kids of great players usually end up great (if you exclude MJ's kids in b-ball of course).
This was hilirious...I needed it to make it through the rest of my work day! Thanks 11W! Although I would have made a comedic reference to the Denard comment when he referenced "eating" (yes sadly I read the actual transcript of the press conference)
Think we see any commits out of this weekend? Or do you think it's a "visit, but not commit" kind of group?
If I was a betting man....I'd go with what you heard Alex.
Good luck Sully....it's been a HECK of a ride!
Maybe they said they'll take one "RB" because Elliot is really a slot/RB and Green is more a true "RB". I think in the end, Urban will never turn down a athletic fast kid, especially given his disappointment with the lack of current players he considers "playmakers".
Great as always Alex, thanks for the updates!
I O, thanks GOSOLOW2000!
To Mr. Beilien,
Sir, I hear that you are still calling The Ohio State University "Ohio" and refering to Ohio University as "Ohio University", we (the fans of this fine university) incorrectly assumed the NCAA tournament selection committee would have removed all doubt as to the correct "terms" for each university, sadly your intelligence level was, shall we say, over estimated.
I find it sad that you can pronouce one school correctly and not the other, however I feel I have a solution. Please forgive the detailed directions, however as you have illustrated sadly your intelligence isn't what we come to expect from a "scUM man".
Please stand in front of a mirror and turn 180 degree's so your back side is facing the mirror, now look back over your left shoulder so you can read what it says on your back side...it reads "PROPERTY OF THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY". It was put there sir after you were STEAM ROLLED (hence proper adhesion) 77-55 in the B1G tournament. That should clear up all doubt as to how to properly speak the name of the premier university in the midwest. Please communicate this to your fellow "scUM men" so they to can know the proper terms for each university. Thanks.
Fans of The Ohio State University
P.S. After coming across this however you MAY have to slow it down for this....coach....or whatever he is, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPxPSzz0LBY
