Comment 24 Jun 2013

The day anyone goes on the Internet to blast a teenager for how they handle themselves on a recruiting website (especially when they are being respectful and aren't doing anything lewd, illegal, etc...) isn't it time for us to reevaluate out priorities? I appreciate the point being made, why not just praise the kids who busted their butts to get an offer and leave off the taking a shot at a recruit?

We ask these young men to come to the schools we love, to represent it with pride, to give their best, to forego a million and one opps for a million and one other opps while enduring pain and potential public humiliation and yet we give them crap for silly stuff like this. Then we say? Why don't they love my school?

Disrespecting the player would be intentionally knowing that this was supposed to be kept silent and still putting it out there in an effort to be first. By all indications that is not what happened here. 

 

The mom is tweeting at the other site because she is pissed and because as you stated, instead of letting the story die there are people fanning the flames trying to find out what actually happened. 

 

I am not very familiar with Bill K. I certainly don't want to throw him under the bus, I just don't know his work that well. I do know Alex's and he has always been the epitome of class, both on that site and this one. If he shares his side of the story I believe it. My defense and concern regarding any trashing, speaking down of or reference to that site is in defense of him and what he has always done.

My only point was that I felt that probably could be done without any reference to any the other site. 11W is awesome at what it does. And you are much better at this than what I ever could be. It's not my intention to question the job you do as I wouldn't want someone telling me how to do my job. 

 

I can certainly appreciate anyone who takes the players' perspective as I always try Ti consider that. It is just my understanding that this was not a function if disrespecting the player or family.

Maybe it's me, but it seems like kind if a Dbag move to throw gasoline on the fire when a former colleague is having a rough time. Are we not all Buckeyes? What happened today sucked and I know that the entire website was referenced but it just seemed like kicking them in the midst of an awful situation especially when someone who had always been first class is caught in the dust up. Just my humble two cents.

Think about it. You get the tv markets. Huge money for those markets for sure. A competitive division and the other division has a "fighting chance to play in championship" while big boy division gets to fight for national champ birth every year. And everyone makes big money with no ball or competitive let down. Who says no?

Crazy thought, forget competitive balance. Offer ND, Florida, Texas and another school. Offer huge money. Put OSU, SCUM, ND, Florida, Texas, PSU, Nebraska, Wisconsin, MSU, and Iowa in the same division. Winner will always win big ten champ game and runner up probably makes playoff also.

We fail to swing the ball and beat our man off the dribble. If Thomas gets double teamed he has to swing the ball and the team can't settle for jumpshots. Similar to what Duke did to us, draw fouls by being aggressive.  If Whithey (sp) is going to block shots fine. He'll get what? 5. But get him in foul trouble by jumping into him.
