Nothing interesting, just a fan of the best college football program in the world. Became an even bigger fan, when my old OC became a coach at Ohio State.

Im on the minority, while I'll never cheer for them, It would be much more satisfying to me to have them undefeated every year and burn the house down the last game.

Stepping on someone with a blown up ego, to me is better than kicking someone that is depressed anyway.

If I could offer my opinion, I have thought about this from a few angles in the past and made a forum wondering if any shady acts happen at OSU. I was informed by some people "in the know" that this doesnt happen in Columbus. Whatever thats worth.

I think what needs to be remembered is that kids are recruited for the person they are as much as the player they are, or atleast I would like to believe that.

I played on a much smaller level than Ohio State, buyt it was scholarship nonetheless, we had guys that the coaching staff knew would for a variety of reasons never see the field. Yet they were seen as an asset to the program, be it off field leadership, practice squad work, or potential as a future coach.

Taking away a kids last year of eligibility for on-field performance takes away even more of what made college footbal so great to begin with. You never get a second chance to run out on the field for the last time. I to this day get emotional thinking about the last game I played in. So in a very business black and white mindset, yes you could argue that you need to move on. From a very real person to person stand point, PT is actaully a very small percentage of what college football is all about, and I would hope this staff values that more than they do scholarship numbers.

True and agreed. Narcissism and addiction have always been eerily similar to me. A sadly interesting subject.

Not that this pertains to Noah Spence and his situation at all.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Good points, like I said its just my opinion.

I think the second part is what has me wondering,  "However, when you can't pass a drug test (you obviously know is coming) for it and lying to your family and coaches about how it happened" and it may well be an addiction. Was being so weak mentally that he caved to the party lifestyle, peer pressure, or the sense that he didnt think he would get caught? I know addiction could fuel all of those things, but so could ego and age. See where Im coming from? Just a view from a different perspective.

what in the world is going on today? Rape, Gun Control, and Child Abuse. Anyone want to start in on religion?

Things are heavy in 11W world today. Everyone take a sip of grandpa's cough syrup and relax. Our daily lives are far to stressful to bring all that in here.

I can only be a smart ass for so long before I start thinking, and thats bad thing. Anyway 5 wide on third and long? Everyone knows whats coming next...

BTW, you could have said this on one statement.

I would rather have JT as the quarterback. See how easy that was.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

"I believe in Braxton and his history of leading this team, conversly JT's accomplishments cant be ignored. Both are excellent young men, that represent themselves, their families, and the university better than could ever be expected. Both are great competitors and leaders, I look forward to the battle that is sure to ensue.  Best of luck to both. Go Bucks!"

Ive often wondered if he really had a drug problem, or if it was something different, but easier to hang it on drugs. I wondered this for two reasons: 1. In my experience with "Molly" or "X", it doesnt come across as an addicting drug, the lifestyle is much more addictive in my opinion. 2. Did they sit him down to make a point, stop something before it got out of control, and to say hey you cant keep being a bonehead, no matter how good you are.

I am most likely terribly turrbably wrong, but these things are what I have thought about.

Interesting, although I will wait until the over lords inform us.

I remember hearing that was the original? Thanks for the update, I will be heading to GV more often now.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Another thing to consider, is those who play football and have a love for it are not normal individuals. It takes a special kind of crazy to enjoy it. You know what youre getting into when you snap that chinstrap. What my be percieved as a major injury to commin folk, to a football player in the midst of a battle its no biggie. The adrenaline, excitement, and joy you feel when you battle so hard it hurts, then you win because of that, its out of this world.

Injured or hurt, players dont want to look back and wonder what if I had stayed in, or what if I would have gone harder. Its a mentality that isnt for everyone, and rightly so.

Man I miss watching #5. Dude can flat out ball.

NOTE: Nothing to do with current debate.

For suburb crowd, Easy Street Cafe in Powell was the spot before it closed.

Now I frequent Galena Diner and Westerville Grill.

As for this debate, going with Nancys.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Hurt or Injured is what the trainers always said. Hurt you can play, injured youre out. At this level an evaluation will take place, if the training staff sayd youre good to go, as long as you can handle the pain, you can go. The trainers are often seen as the enemy, players think they want to pull them for every little thing. So unless its a massive mistake ala UM earlier this year, the training staff will pull a player if need be.

Comment 20 Nov 2014

Im sure the coaches and program have a good idea of who will move on, who will stay, who will be a "better fit" somewhere else, and everything in between.

I know I have seen scholly breakdown on 11W before, but I cant find anywhere in the search bar.

Maybe whoever puts it together can post a link.
