Save your smug BS for the few who aren't tired of your shtick.

That comes straight from people directly involved at the time and isn't anything new to those who have followed the program. The schism between Tressel & Kirk was directly due to differences in opinion over the level of access that should be granted. Depending on your POV you can spin either one as the villain if you so wish. Jim Tressel was an overbearing control freak or Kirk Herbstreit felt he was entitled...it doesn't really matter which, it doesn't change the primary disagreement.

It doesn't fit your agenda so you'll never believe it...that's fine. Just do us all a favor & come down off your cross. You should be glad that Herbstreit & ESPN topics crop up periodically. Without them you wouldn't have anything to post about.

do what he did to Joey Townstead a few years ago and try to get him as a prefered walk on

Another myth that just won't die.

Townsend was never asked to become a preferred walk-on or to gray shirt.

A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Tallahassee to be born?

To be fair this is only the 8th trip Minnesota has made to Lincoln since 1960.

As for the local announcers....all their team has to do is knock off Wisconsin next week and they'll have the opportunity to see they really stack up against the Buckeyes.

The release states that #10 will be honored by enshrinement in the stadium. It does not say that it is being retired. The University has stated previously that no more numbers will be retired. If you read the press release you'll also find...

The number 10 is currently in use by freshman defensive end Jalyn Holmes, from Norfolk, Va., and he will continue to wear that jersey. Moving forward, the Department of Athletics will continue to honor individuals and enshrine jersey numbers of its outstanding performers across its 36-sport intercollegiate athletics program, but jersey numbers will no longer be taken out of circulation. The school's 18 previously retired jersey numbers will remain retired, though, outside of a decision based upon protocols being developed now.

We can't hold people to moral standards since they are so subjective and you can't really quantify anything like that.

Of course you can & organizations have done so for time immemorial. A current example would be the honor codes at places like the service academies or BYU.

You may or may not agree with the moral precepts set forth by a specific group but to claim that it is impossible to define a set of moral standards is completely without merit.

True. It's almost impossible to top the repulsive discussions trying to prove Sandusky was innocent so they could exonerate Paterno.

That being said I love the thought that PSU is literally one play away from being 9-1. Just ponder the cosmic implications of a single play changing the outcome of three separate games.

I'm also a fan of the initial request for someone who understands how Twitter works to translate for the rest of the troglodytes.
