Almost went with Collier for those very reasons!

Jeeves, there was a time when I absolutely agreed with you on that. And when it comes just to talking sports, I still do. But I'll say this, I take exception to the manner in which he's been outwardly discussing politics lately. That's a no no here (supposed to be anyhow) & I for one hate it on this particular site. My feelings of contempt for some of those comments & tactics have nothing at all to do with what school he went to or likes. Nothing. Hell, my wife is a UM girl. I can look past that. But bringing up politics time & again -- HERE...that I can't look past. While I have not been one of those who are apparently DVing all his posts, I do cringe when I see some of the blatantly political comments. I like to think that nobody has a damn clue what my political beliefs are here...& I'd really like it if I didn't know anyone else's. Sorry if I'm being a bit of a jerk on this. I mean, it's great to be nice to other posters & see the positive in them, but sometimes it's equally important to be honest enough to point out the bad.

BTW: +1s to you & Hove for being righteous dudes either way.

The funny thing is Brandon, with KateUptonsLowerBack, that's 11 different personalities. Or his very own 11 Warriors if you will...

I like her! Hey - some people out there speak their minds. Nothing wrong with it. I think she's all Buckeye regardless & I won't be mad because she likes warm weather.

But If you want to go reading really hard into the words she said, you might notice that she's paying the south & the SEC a bit of a left handed compliment. You might even notice that she could be saying they are somewhat maniacal in an unhealthy way. Which they are. As Jason said above, each & every SEC school's fans are sick with their football fan-ness (it's a word), while it's just not like that in the B1G. OSU has the best fans in CFB in my opinion, and there are some other good fans elsewhere in the B1G conference, but on the whole the SEC is a more football crazy place. Probably in a bit of an unhealthy way. I mean...look at the response to Urban leaving UF - how about Toomer's corner anyone? Passionate & competitive, but super bat-shit crazy too.

Brandon, I wouldn't want a digital fight either. The link says parents can be considered boosters. I read all the rules in their entirety and I'll state again, I think Mr Elliot is well within his rights to mention to ANYONE that he & his son have had a good experience at Ohio State. Even If it were somehow technically "illegal", I can't imagine, in this day & age of the NCAA investigating nothing & the power conferences on the verge of gaining autonomy, that anything could possibly come from it. I can see the headline "OSU cheats again! Now parents of players are telling recruits they've enjoyed their experience with Ohio State". Come on... I recall reading a story recently where parents like Stacy Elliot was asked by UFM to consider the program theirs & to lend a hand whenever possible. Seems like that's what he's doing.

Comment 27 Jul 2014

He's a parent of a player at OSU. For him to pass on that he loves the place & thinks they would do well to come there is well within his rights. Not a violation at all...

Edit: Having read the link below, if he is a booster, then recruiting in the traditional sense may be "illegal". I maintain that speaking to people about their own good experience is well within any parent's rights.

Comment 27 Jul 2014

I'm going to speculate & say that with Moore & Alibi committing & numbers getting tight, there may not have been room in the end. I gotta think that had Moore not come on board, Conrad likely would have had his offer even if he was not having a great night. One way or another, it appears from an outsiders (myself) perspective that Conrad's chance at an offer may have been effected by Moore's commitment. Interesting turn of events nonetheless - I'd have liked to seen them both in...

Comment 27 Jul 2014

The more I read about the teams OSU plays this year, the more I think they have a pretty damn respectable & tough schedule. I expect to hear a lot less about how OSU plays a bunch of nobody's...but that's probably asking way too much.

Comment 26 Jul 2014

I've heard that, & I had one last time I was there & it wasn't quite as good as it once was, but's it's still way, WAY better than any chains down here in FL.

Comment 26 Jul 2014

So much good stuff Jeremy! Looking forward to more info related to tonight & specifically anything more on if Conrad & does/did get the offer, how Joe Burrow looked at QB, & if Gibson effects him in any way good or bad, news on players currently visiting, including Gibson, how Danny Clark looked at QB, and anything else that may have come from tonight. I usually don't care to worry about a class that is 2 years away from being signed, but damn if the 2016 doesn't look like UFM will have his coveted #1 recruiting class...it's going to be an insane class either way.
