Confidence is a fickle b--ch. If you make mistakes going as hard as you can, you can't crush a kid. Mental mistakes, lack of effort, etc... sure, send a message and have a seat. I'd rather have guys cough it up trying to make a play than play scared. These are all learning opportunities that will make this team better in the long run.
Easy mistake to make, but it is Conner . . . Not Connor.
If the school wishes to avoid the NCAA penalties imposed on that coach, the college must send representatives to appear before the NCAA's Committee on Infractions, and "show cause" (i.e., evidence) as to why it should not be penalized along with (i.e., for hiring) that coach. The penalty is intended to prevent a coach from escaping violations that he/she had a role in committing or allowing -- which are generally applied to the school (e.g., lost scholarships, forfeited wins) -- by merely resigning and taking a coaching job at another, un-penalized school. It is currently the most severe penalty that can be brought against a U.S. college sports coach.
Taken from Wiki, assuming a school hires a coach with a "Show cause" looming.
I live just south of Charlotte in Rock Hill, SC. I usually go to the season opener at Strike City (HUGE following there as it is the home of the Charlotte Buckeyes.) Like CharlotteBuckeye said above, it is in the epicenter (right next to Time Warner Arena - Where the Bobcats/Hornets play) Get there early for big games or you will be standing by the bar, which isn't too bad considering you are hanging out next to 400 fellow Bucks.
Funny side note, they hold raffles every week and the big prize is a flight into Cincinnati. Always found that comical.
Enjoy your move, you will be pleasantly surprised at the number of Ohioans you will be around and the fact that in two years, I have only been shut out of two games on local tv (because I don't get the B1G Network)
McD is very similar to Urban in the "My way or the highway" routine. If he made the decision to keep him around albeit allegedly suspending him, then he sees something in him that can be salvaged. Meyer is allowing the young man a chance to learn from his mistakes and grow if what you're saying is true. I'm all for it. Thanks for the update.
Unless I am reading this wrong, he drank a beer and was sitting in his car and probably smelled of said beer. When they brought him down, they realized he was fine and let him go. There is nothing to charge him with... Why is this even reported (Not here, I mean anywhere)?
Playing for Cleveland is.
Cold blooded young man.
Edit: Silly, but oh so cold blooded.
If only Stanford had played Jayru football...
Funny story, true story.
A buddy of mine had a sister who got married in the late 90's at noon, on the day of The Game. Her father refused to attend the ceremony. Sadly the marriage did not work out. Obviously pissed at her father, her next marriage was scheduled about 5 years later... on the day of The Game.
Her father did not attend again.
The wonderful thing about being a fan at a place such as The OSU is the fact that we always will have the next man in line who can get the job done. Regardless of the past with people such as Bauserman, Zwick, etc. there are plenty of athletes who have just had their opportunity opened. To play at Ohio State is a privilege that very few get the opportunity to experience, I have full confidence these young guys will not only step through that door, but they will kick the damn thing down. Have faith in our student-athletes, believe that those who are left wearing scarlet and gray will grow together because of the adversity, and do not lower your expectations. You know DAMN well those players will not. If nothing else, a lot of our 'pups' just got hungrier.
They will be fine because they are a team. Not a collection of individuals. Those who come through that tunnel understand all they have put into their season, and they will not let the bad decisions of few bring down the collective whole.
For those of you who just felt your world end, go play outside or something. I promise, the sun is going to come up tomorrow. It will be at its height at high noon on Aug. 31.
