Curious...are you going to be so enthused about Hoke and your great defense if you lose to MSU at home this week (again)? Just wondering. Please post your thoughts here if/ when that happens. Thanks!
Completely agree, Ted. There is no commercial entity on Earth that I more wish would go down in flames than ESPN. What a garbage dump that network has become.
He is a troll. And it's funny he thinks JoePa and PSU is so pure....I have a friend who ran track at PSU who has some great stories about LaVar Arrington. Funny stuff.
(was referring to M1EK)
Life's tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid. They should take those words to heart.
This was all in the self report. Verbatim.
Suck it, all you media haters. Way to blow up a relatively minor story into ZOMFG WATERGATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please, give us your OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!!....your tears are delicious.
Whatever. I know JT was doing it 'the right way' more than 99% of the programs out there. The crap he has been viilified for is trying to handle in house crap that goes on freaking everywhere (even Bowling Green, I know this for a fact). There is no comparison with the garbage that goes on in so many places, such as grade fixing, money bags for recruits, etc (and yes, I have first hand experience with both of the above).
If you want to believe that JT 'fooled' you, you are completely naive about the things that go on in college football. Sorry to break that to you.
BTW, you are missing a few DERPs for those idiots. Not sure there are enough DERPs on the internet to be appropriate, actually.
To answer your question, The Media. Your post is incoherent.
Wisconsin did *WORSE* a few years ago (with Barry Alvarez, the current freaking *AD*), and got a relative slap on the wrist, not to mention the comfy chair by the media. If OSU had done what Wisconsin did back then, the OUTRAGE!!!! would dwarf the current crap. So choose another strawman.
If forcing out Tressel was 'obligatory', why wasn't Carroll forced out? Or for that matter, why hasn't Butch Davis been forced out? Or Chip Kelly (although he may still, and should, be gone)? Losing the first or second best head coach in school history is certainly 'punitive', at least on my planet, not to mention their Heisman trophy candidate QB (and that's not mentioning the suspended players outside of Pryor). Some fans have completely bought into the garbage ESPN and morons like Forde have been selling.
Solid post, M Man. For the record, I thought the UM violations were pretty much a joke, especially in the greater scheme. I haven't been to MGoBlog for months, although I do appreciate most of what Cook does. He gets preachy on certain subjects, and any dissention to the ideas he posts is usually shouted down by the herd there. Dogmatic groupthink isn't very compelling.
I don't think OSU will get a postseason ban, but they may get some scholly reductions. Whatever it is, bring it on. More than anything, I am tired of the hypocritical media OUTRAGE!!! Tressel screwed up, but spare me the "I am shocked, SHOCKED that gambling is going on in this establishment!".
