3 options that I see most likely. 1. Drain the lake during football season. 2. Get rid of lake all together, fill in with concrete/dirt and OSU makes it into a park. 3. They do nothing to the lake but regulate the hell out of the tradition. Security/police everywhere monitoring every kid that takes the jump, have students sign waivers.
Totally agree. Meyer and staff did a really bad job and I'd be upset as hell if I was a player too but when you publicly criticize your coaching staff for not getting the ball enough, bad play calling, etc you cross the line. Nobody says Zeke can't have these feelings but I think expressing them publicly in front of 20-30 cameras was immature and not not what a team leader and face of the program does.BTW- Heat of the moment, emotions running high? I saw 2 different post-game interviews where he laid into the coaches/play calling. Wasn't like it was a one time outburst. The coaching staff looked bad enough with the play calling it didn't need a star player, Heisman candidate, team leader, face of the team calling them out in front of 20 cameras. Zeke made the University and program look really bad and made himself look like a spoiled brat, prima donna who should have expressed his emotions to Urban behind closed doors instead of in front of 20 cameras. I thinks he's a good kid and a great player but lost some respect for him Saturday.
Well we can agree to disagree but I am just having a hard time believing by what you've been saying that you are a true OSU fan that even remotely understands what "The Game" means to the players, coaches and fans. To even consider proposing the idea of losing to TTUN in trade for losing a few coaches is for a lack of a better word insane? Not sure your history with sports on a playing level or fandom but you seem to me to be searching for an argument or you just have no idea about what your talking about?
I respect your opinion but I think you are way off with your thoughts. I'd like to see what Woody would say to your comments about losing to TTUN on purpose so that we could get a coaching shake up? The Problem here is that we don't lose often and we've gotten a bit spoiled by that. In C-bus losing 1-2 games is a horrible season but reality is that you can't win them all, nobody ever will. Everything I travel within US I hear the one common complaint about OSU fans and it is that we don't handle losing very well ( and that is putting it mildly). Reality is that we won't win every game every year so learn to deal and savor the positive aspects like the fact that just last year this team had what will most likely be remembered as one of the most amazing runs to a title in school history.
Amen! Just sad.
Truly embarrassed to read the OP. I thought the loss to MSU was bad but now stupid thoughts like these are like kicking a man while he is already down.
Who? Me or OPer?
Are you serious OP? No way no how I play to lose to TTUN! I suggest you take down this post before you get slaughtered.
If Urbs is as good as we know he is he will get it worked out. IMO- what Zeke said is what we all believe and saw today but not the time/place for those comments. Immature, selfish and I'm quite surprised to hear it from him. Leaders don't blame or call out coaches publicly and my guess is that after his father and Urbz talk with him he will be wistling a different tune.
Us vs The World approach? Hmmmmmm sounds familiar? Maybe just like last year?
This game is all about momentum and the will to win. Today we saw this as a less talented MSU clearly out played us. If Urban is as good as we know he is then I think we could see a better team Sat in AA. I just don't see them not wanting to show the world that they aren't that bad. I think we obviously have to change some things on offense but we all know that we have talent and we've seen this squad play a lot better. PSU has nothing to lose and a QB and RB that can make big plays.
We will find out a lot about our boys next Sat. My guess is that Urbs might have these guys ready to play? He is a master motivator and we gonna need his A+ game. I might even go as far as to say I'd be even more shocked than today if they don't come out "juiced up".
Totally understandable. If I could buy a drink or ten I'd gladly do so. Just tired of the negative talk.
I have and like I said they have a solid D and with MSU coming off emotional win. Not likely but what I've learned watching NCAA Football is that anything and everything can happen. I thought it was a valid discussion topic? Could always go on another post and bitch, and complain?
A shovel and some smelling sauce and we might find him?
He managed the game well but had fairly below average numbers. PSU has a solid D. I'm not saying this is likely but thinking logically there is a better chance than if Cook was totally healthy. Now logically speaking after what we saw with OSU today I don't think we can win In AA. Just trying to start a positive spin.
Can we all agree that Kareem played OSU and Urban on this one? Can we all agree that he re-affirmed his commitment over and over for the past few weeks and then suddenly decommitts. That to me shows real immaturity and possibly a kid with misplaced priorities. Yes he is a kid and kids make mistakes but with all that being said I'm alright with Kareem not choosing OSU. I don't think Urban likes the drama and flakeyness and I don't either. I'm not calling him bad names and berating him just giving my opinion.
What kind of skills do you have? Are you handy with anything around the house?
I don't really need to know his whole story to come to the opinion that he has handled this poorly. I'll give him a pass because he is young and we all made poor decisions one time or another.
I don't want to be a jerk and rip this kid because he is just a kid but this is a crappy way to handle your business. Why tell everyone with a pen or microphone that you are ALL OSU then decomitt? Personally I don't want a kid like this even if he has 5 stars in front of his name. I hope he goes to UM so he and D. Green can be roomies.
Only way he goes back to radio is if he buys a radio station. He was painful to listen to.
Wish him well but am puzzled and disappointed in the way this went down. He was telling anyone and everyone that he was 100% committed yet he obviously wasn't. I know he is still a kid but seems like a pretty crappy thing to do after reaffirming his commitment over and over.
