Good read Johnny, it sure seems Bert is always trying to find the easy way out all the time. I find it comical he has to find this solution to improving his team by trying to change the rule. I'll blow a freakin gasket if this rule passes. Can't stop hurry up offense, well you better find better personell (?) both in recruiting and coaching scheme like a lot of other coaches do. Lazy coaching tactics from this douche IMHO.
Well done as far as SAM goes, You kept personal opinions out of it and pretty much stuck to the story without chiming in you personal feelings. That's fari and balanced writing to me.
Now you throw the assumption I'm ignorant, thanks you have proven my point. I have said nothing on here aside from not agreeing to the "lifestyle" that I don't agree with
But people dont know me so don't call me intolerant or a bigot simply because I don't believe in the lifestyle and am not afraid to say it (not saying you were calling me that just a response to your questions). I have NEVER called someone a "Faggot" or "Queer" or whatever and if I heard someone who did I would put them in their place as THAT is the intolerance to.In my previous employment I worked with two openly gay men and got along quite well with them. I didn't treat them any different than any other person.
I got the hell out of the way with respect I gave them they wanted but yet keep getting thrown back on the tracks because I respectfully don't agree with it. BTW, I have been branded racist, homophobe, intolerant, bigot, etc simply because I disagree. I have always been respectful never dropped any derogatory name.
This is here because whether some like it or not, it's a pretty damn big story. Feel free to not discuss it.
Good way to lose some of your page views considering quite a few people come here to get away from everyday politcal/social issues.
I appreciate those who've said that they will welcome Sam regardless of the fact that they don't approve of his lifestyle. That is the definition of tolerance.
Evanston, I respectfully disagree. I don't agree with the lifestyle but yet called intolerant, bigot, etc when all I have said is I don't agree and nothing more on more than a few occasions in other chats. How is this tolerance?
I have gay family members to start with to be clear.
My question is and no one can seem to answer this is why do get called names for not believing the lifestyle is right? I've never called anyone a derogatory name because they are gay but I am not afraid to say I don't believe it's right. Why is my opinion not respected like they want respect? Because I don't agree with the lifestyle makes me a bigot or intolerant? Now if I am calling these people names or making derogatory slurs then I deserve but I never have said anything bad.
it goes both ways for respect and IMHO this shouldn't be on this site.
Btw, to compare this to race are two totally different issues.
Gotta up vote for AJ Lee on principle...Yes!
So, as a CoCordinator does he have an input on the DBS?
As I am sure you know bigger names don't always bring better results.
I think it is money and his ties to NE to be honest. Gonna miss him but I think one day he will be back.
Just curious as to why the d line would need to brought up? One of the best rush defenses in the country. Sure, they could have generated more pressure at times but I can think of years recently when the pass rush wasn't very good but the secondary was lights out.
I think that's an honest assessment of him. My only beef is his circus act of receiving a punt. I don't know how many times I bite my tongue when he starts to dance around because there has been more than a few times he has muffed punts.
i am in no way knocking the kid because as you said he was serviceable for the needs and in no way will compare to a Galloway, Boston, or Glenn in the lore of OSU receivers.
time for someone else to step up. I am excited to hopefully now see the recruits that are mostly Meyers and how they are utilized.
Agreed, I felt the D did the best they could with what they had. I feel it comes down to a very poor decision by Brown not to fair catch the stinking ball and not using more of Hyde on that last drive. We had the time outs and decent field position so I am a little confused as to why the run or even a mere threat of the run got completely abandoned.
As much as good a returner Brown is it seems to me it's a circus act when he's catching the ball. If he catches a punt cleanly then he is a true threat and does a great job protecting it but when he jacks around trying to catch it is the problem he has had and it bit him last night. IMHO.
Agreed, had there been anything that remotely resembled a decent d Osu wins this game hands down. Not sure why he went all pass the last drive as they had good field position and time puts. Sadly, I think this comes down to philly brown though and his weekly punt return drama. He fair catches that with the the way they were moving the ball we might not be here right now.
I never bash these guys as they are kids but Philly Brown and his punt return spectacles finally bit him and effectively the team in the butt. I mean fair catch it, you are up by nine and moving the ball.
Better get that D fixed real quick.
Well they had a chance and not quite sure why they went to total pass with field postion and time outs but I am no coach.
Point taken and UV...
Consistent about what? That you didn't get the news right away? Whatever way they phrased it don't mean squat to me and I think the reason they kept it as it was is because they were trying to help the kid through appeals. Now if they come out initially and say more that wasn't the correct info what would your argument be then?
Edit: I'm not trying to be a jerk, just saying they don't owe us anything until the situation is resolved. Whether they label it personal or violation they could ultimately be one in the same since if you think about it this type of violation could be on a personal level.
If you've had to live with the garbage from ownership since they came back then yes they are hapless. I used to be a diehard but once Modell took them to Baltimore he took every fans heart from them. Same shit different year. All I remember hearing was how Haslam was gonna bring pride back and when your fire someone whom you totally backed up in the early part of this year as your man then fire him after one season then yeah they are hapless and I'm tired of it. The one constant = TOSU.
