Thanks! Anybody see him on the sideline since? Is he in pads?

This Rudy?

Inspiring stuff.

So proud of Meyer for picking Dolodale. He has a much lower ceiling; when our offense is better than the defense JT is the much better option; a surgeon. Takes the option for 40 yards instead of 2 to 8. But when the play breaks down Dolodale sees through all the trash and makes astounding plays. Part of that is he's a half-foot taller, the other half is that he's one of 1% of the QBs in the country who can dodge a rush, put his head down, pick it back up, and drill whichever wide receiver is open. I honestly think he's going #1 overall in the draft next year.

Our Buckeyes accomplished something tremendous and the president is honoring their accomplishment. It's a tradition spanning multiple decades. Part of being the president is performing ceremonial duties. This has been true since the founding of our great nation.

Perhaps! But when he's pairing "haze of bourbon" with "latent homophilia," that's not a good look. I can follow your reasoning though. In a sense, sports fandom is a celebration of the body just as fashion magazines are. But I don't want to have sex with Braxton Miller just because I derive pleasure from what his body can do on the football field.

Either way, his joke was easily interpreted as bigoted (at least by me) and therefore he, in the most charitable view, executed it poorly (at least according to me).

I know what the word latent means. The rest of your comment is a word salad. Originally you were talking about scouts; now it seems you're trying to claim that sportswriters unconsciously overpraise gay athletes relative to straight ones—a phenomenon that, due to my lack of sophistication, I am ignorant to.

Dude, you were making a gay joke. It's not the end of the world, but there's no place for that tacky shit and it deserves to be called out.

I've explained the false equivalency at length and directly asked you questions and you've made no substantive response. So your "fuck you" isn't doing anything for me. But Go Bucks! 

Comment 05 Apr 2015

My grandma likes it when I say "fuck"! She's ninety and about to die and it makes her feel less out of touch.

Comment 05 Apr 2015

Good stuff! And agreeing with you that this thread should have been killed a long time ago. I have plenty of websites that reinforce what I think, and I'd rather hear about what my fellow Buckeye fans have to say about Conley/Webb/Lattimore.

Three of them would be dead, and the fourth would consider it vulgar. And I would agree with her! It's not a nice word and he was poorly representing his college.

Comment 05 Apr 2015

I don't disagree. I think the word, when black people use it, is quite possibly defeatist and nihilistic. But Harrison was never slurring Kaminsky, and arguments that he was were aggravating beyond belief.

Let's be friends. I like goat, lamb, beef, and Real Madrid. Do you like any of those things?

Comment 05 Apr 2015

It is! He's saying that Riley Cooper and Andrew Harrison deserve the same opprobrium. But as 30% of the people on this thread have noted, Harrison's use of the n-word was equivalent to calling Kaminsky "dude." This thread has been depressingly full of people who are bitter that black people get to use the n-word.
