I can totally understand your opinion on the matter. I think the difference between this and Winston is accountability and the setting. When there are 18000 people screaming the same thing at the same time there is no way to hold be accountable for that, you cant kick out everyone. Additionally most OSU students aren't Winston, people simply do not care what I do because i'm a normal dude who hasn't won the National Championship, I'm not under any type of microscope like he is. The setting is also important. Football, is associated with beer, violence and rowdy behavior. Yelling something like "rip his fucking head off" is something that most people wouldn't raise an eyebrow at, if it was said during a football game; however standing on a table on campus and yelling "fuck her right in the pussy" makes no sense to do in the context of the setting.
Does anyone know when it started? I've been here since 2012 and it seemed to be pretty well ingrained at that time.
Gibson isnt gonna be playing QB once he gets here
Agreed Rubix. Regardless of the what the infraction is, any player who breaks a league rule should be required to serve the full sentence. What it comes down to for me isn't the severity, or lack thereof in this case, of the rule being broken, it is Gordon's blatant disregard for the rules and repeated violations of them. An example should be made of him to show that the NFL will not tolerate repeated rule breakers.
The rivalry uniforms should be our regular home and away uniforms. I'LL SAY IT
How the hell does Purdue Pete have 113000 votes. That could legitmately be the worst mascot in history. This poll is bad and the Chicago Tribune should feel bad.
If this assclown is the head coach at Michigan how am I not the dean at Ohio State's law school?
If we played Notre Dame I would rather do a 1 and 1 instead of play them at a neutral site... but I doubt this game will happen anytime soon.
my jealousy will end in about 8 hours. The point i was making was it would be cool to see Ohio State utilize the amazing venue that is the Shoe for other things. Does anyone know why they don't host other events? I checked on wikipedia and the last non football event was a concert in 2003. I get that no one wants to do a concert when you arent going to be able to sell out a fraction of a stadium that big, but if you got 2 or 3 huge names to do a show together once every few years I think you'd be able to sell out most of the stadium.
I don't really know if you count this as a change to the stadium but I think it would be pretty cool if they played Closing Time by Semisonic over the loud speakers in games the Buckeyes were winning during 4th quarter TV time outs or right at the end of the game. The whole stadium singing that would be pretty awesome if you ask me.
