My take is that Herman and Urbs are very "aligned" and Herman defiintely went to bat for Ash. He probably fits their circle well.....I think this could be part of the problem with Fickell.

I have and that doesn't change anything about what happened. The coverup was much bigger than the crime...that's where I'm coming from I guess.

This discussion is over because I have now shifted all my attention forever to your profile picture.

I mean his decision making process throughout the TAT5 ordeal was really inexcusable. It cost the University millions and our national reputation is just now emerging from the toilet.  I would also say that added to that scandal we became a national embarrassment vs. the SEC and in several other high profile games (USC).  Like it or not, outside of our Buckeye world virtually no one wants to see us back in the NC game. I give Tress credit for restoring our record against SCUM and of course the 2002 season which was magical looking back. I think he's a good coach and probably a very good man. He's earned respect, but that's it. He was handsomely paid to achieve those things.

Just the way I see it. I feel better about the program and accountability now.

Yeah....I'm tired of this story and the Youngstown Boys. I think it's great that Maurice has had a change of heart and become a better person....but isn't that what we're supposed to do? I know tons of people that are 3 times the human being Clarett is but will not get a write up here or a 30 for 30 film. Tressel did a ton for OSU football but man I disagree with the pedestal we put him on. He did some very bad as well...that seems to be lost. I guess I'm just not enamored with these guys and all the things that went down with them. I'll take the current situation and staff every time. Let's move on.

Just my take...downvote at will.

As a Louisiana resident....this week and this week only I am a 100% insufferable Tiger fan.

Geaux Tigers!

Comment 13 Oct 2013

Last night while watching the game...my wife, who is a Southerner and knows NOTHING about Hoke just nonchalantly says: "Michigan's coach looks like he's put on his winter 15 already".

I renewed her contract on the spot.

Yes, yes he is. I wonder what his super hot wife thinks when she sees this stuff....or wakes up in the morning with his giant sweaty head next to her.

Comment 26 Sep 2013

I personally think we should never kick again. If we score 2 pointers only 50% of the time we are still on schedule right?

 

Comment 18 Aug 2013

Agreed....truth be told Chip Kelly lost most of his bigger games. I'm not sure they're top 5 even if he hadn't left.

Comment 18 Aug 2013

You know, I really thought at first that his sights were set on an NFL coaching job but I think he and his family are settled in. One of those rare guys that has instant credibility based on his accomplishments.

 

Comment 04 Aug 2013

Our Purgatory is almost OVER! Is it possible to figure out a way to increase the season to like 10 months long? I'm being serious!

Comment 03 Aug 2013

It really has been.....brutal.....like football supermax prison.

 

Comment 03 Aug 2013

All quiet on the Roby front. Is it possible that Hyde and Roby missing a few easier games actually reduce their risk of injury / gets some other guys valuable game play experience? We'll need them for sure at the end.

Comment 29 Jul 2013

LSU....because I live and work in Louisiana. LSU fans are the WORST and truly believe no other football is played outside the SEC. The also never remember when they lose. They also think they have been good for 100 years.

Unfortunately the Buckeyes have reinforced their superiority complex. I would delight in evening the score and changing the perception.

What's funny is they believe we are now contenders because UM coached in the SEC where he learned how to play real football which automatically makes us faster, tougher, and competitive.

I hope the football Gods read this comment.

Death to the SEC!
