Lifelong Buckeye back in Ohio. Spent 4 years in the heart of SEC country. It was awful. But the women were beautiful.

Wow. That's all I can say. As a senior in HS in NW Ohio when Dru passed, I remember him clearly.

Great way to remember he young man. Well done.

I wonder if he thinks the NFL scouts are going to pat him on the head and tell him he's super.

Seriously, kid, the world is a much meaner place than scary ol' Urban Meyer makes it look like. Good luck at your first job interview post-college. I'm sure everyone at your first place of employment will fawn over what a tremendous young man you've become and how special you are compared to everyone else.

This is the "everyone gets a trophy" generation facing adversity.

Seriously? That was said in reference to the fact that he told the truth... Not giving an answer that is vague or misleading. I'm not polling for his Q rating during election season. It's his opinion, and he wasn't giving the PC answer. That's why I said he doesn't have a future in politics.

And mayor of Akron isn't even real politics. Think more Frank Underwood (national) and less Goldie "Progress" Wilson (local).

I certainly don't wish ill upon the man. For the most part, I think he's done a good job. But he's also had some misses... And for people saying "well, in hindsight," come on. Everyone knew we were probably going to get hit with some stiff penalties, so taking a 6-6 team to the Gator Bowl should've been an easy pass opportunity. Nearly every college football fan I knew assumed OSU was going to take a self-imposed bowl ban. Would that have guaranteed no bowl ban the next season, one that we knew Urban would be coaching? Of course not... But it would've made our odds a hell of a lot better. 6-6 team with Fickell at HC or roll the dice on UFM's first season? That's not even a logical question.

Point being, I don't believe Gene Smith thought the NCAA would slap a postseason ban on OSU. Call it optimism, ego, whatever... But he should've seen that coming because every B1G and SEC fan (I lived in Atlanta at the time) sure as hell did.
