Very sad...young men holding a camp to try to help the next generations of punters, and in just a split second, tragedy. RIP to both young men, condolences to their families, friends, and their respective university communities.
Given the recent developments, it's starting to sound like the accusations are hocum. If so, that's a shame, really - makes it that much harder for women who really are being abused to be believed.
I wish people wouldn't just jump to one side or the other. I wish people wouldn't automatically assume he did it. I wish people wouldn't automatically defend him and say it's not possible for him to do this. Yes, people can be not who you thought they were. People can also be falsely accused. Let the facts come out.
Zeke would be about the last person that I would expect to hear this about. However, between people like Bill Cosby, Jared Fogle, Joe Paterno, and Chris Benoit (not to mention potentially countless others), we should always be reminded that people can absolutely be much different than what they seem to be based on our limited knowledge of them. So, even if this seems unlike Zeke, that certainly doesn't mean that he couldn't have done this. And the proof that we've seen so far certainly doesn't prove that he did. He says he didn't do it, 4 witnesses say he didn't do it...but that girl had at least a mark on her wrist (those pictures to Instagram of injuries aren't her's, right?)...that happened somehow.
Largest crowd of disappointed fans in state history come the end of the night
More money on TTUN to win the title = more points OSU shitcans TTUN by.
TTUN was also one of the favorites at this time last year. OSU was obviously the overall overwhelming favorite. We saw in both cases how that turned out, but, we also watched The Game the last few years and have seen the reverse correlation between how good TTUN is and how well OSU plays against them.
I think if they can escape the back to back roadies against Wisconsin and Penn State at 6-1 or 7-0, then they definitely can be title contenders. The talent is there. Will they develop enough to pull out some tough road wins early on?
I wish I had a millionaire friend with a great in-ground pool!
Looks like piss to me.
I would be fully on board with bringing back the Hive. Watching the team come out arm in arm, with Hells Bells in the background...always good stuff. As far as Quick Cals go, you can lump me in the "indifferent/meh" category of people who don't hate it but don't really like it, either.
If true, then there's no question he deserved to be booted off the team. It is technically just one side of the story and these are allegations at this point. Getting out in front of it like the staff has is the right way to handle it IMO. I suppose if we find out that Dunn didn't do what has been alleged, then he could be reinstated.
Not necessarily...it could've been something relatively minor, but it was the straw the broke the camel's back, so to say. Then again, the article mentions that he broke a "cardinal rule", though it wasn't specific about what it was.
I guess if it's really serious, we'll hear about it eventually.
Cardinal rule, as in the whole "honesty, treat women with respect, no drugs, stealing or weapons" thing posted in the Woody?
Not good. Never thought Dunn would actually start at RB, but perhaps he would get meaningful carries. But he's got his degree and there are other capable backs on the roster, so next man up. Hopefully whatever Dunn did doesn't mess him up beyond being kicked off the team.
Number one, I'm tired of the B.S. I'm going (back) to coaching basketball. I'm going back to running this program the way we did when we got here.
Oh hell yeah, that's exactly what is needed. No more BS. Go get it Basketbucks!
I guess if Evan Turner slapped Gareon Conley, maybe I'd understand how this can happen.
I will take Schiano at his word with Bradley essentially backing him up. Hopefully, we can put this thing to rest now (assuming Schiano and Bradley are telling the truth and nothing else comes out to suggest otherwise).
Not exactly a shiny jewel. Lol
I suppose if 2020 rolls around and Urban, Dantonio, and Harbaugh are all gone from OSU/MSU/UM respectively, and none of these schools managed to find even an adequate replacement, and recruiting goes way downhill and performance suffers and Chris Ash can do a good job at Rutgers and actually stays there instead of taking on a more high profile college/NFL job, then maybe, just maybe, Rutgers can become a power in that decade. Good luck with that. Right now, the ceiling for them is 5th in the B1G East for the foreseeable future.
Oh boy. I sure hope this isn't true. This is another one of those where we need to let the facts come out first. Right now, all we have is that "someone told me that Schiano saw something"...from Mike fucking McQueary of all people...I'm going to need more than that before I start digging out my pitchfork.
Now as I look online, sounds like Schiano came out and stated that he didn't see any abuse. I hope that's true. If not, then I can't defend the guy. Being fired from OSU wouldn't be punishment enough then.
Not that marijuana is that big of a deal, but what if Auburn was playing Florida A&M in the opener instead of Clemson? Amazing how discipline is handled when you actually have to play a good team in your season opener.
I will give Urbz credit for the suspensions for the VT game last year. Granted, VT is not exactly Clemson, but it was a road game, at night, against a team far superior to some mid-major that you would normally see in a season opener.
Worst case is not 7-5...fucking laughable...10-2 is the worst case.
Maybe on paper, but it is "Big Game" Bob, so OSU has a tremendous chance.
It's tough. If everything that has happened since the game with the altered outcome would stay the same, I would definitely pick the OSU/Florida BCS Championship Game. OSU takes the L to LSU a year later and people can chalk it up to "it's really hard to repeat as national champions".
Since we have to consider that events since the game with the altered outcome would also be altered, my choice is the Sparty game from last year. And I would change exactly one play from that game. The final play.
Instead of MSU's kicker drilling the game winner and air guitaring across the field of the 'Shoe, OSU blocks that fucker and takes it back for 6 as time expires. OSU 20, MSU 14. This way, OSU ends the game with the same, pathetic 132 yards of total offense. The offensive coaches still get their heads out of their asses and finally figure out the offense, allowing the Buckeyes to still eviscerate TTUN the following week.
Then, it's OSU vs Iowa for the B1G Championship. I believe OSU wins that no problem. After finishing the season undefeated with wins over three top 10 teams in MSU, TTUN, and Iowa, the Buckeyes get the #1 seed in the playoff. The semifinals are #1 OSU vs #4 Oklahoma and #2 Clemson vs #3 Alabama. OSU and Bama win the semis, OSU beats Bama for the 2nd straight year for their 2nd straight title. OSU still kicks major ass in 2016 and 2017 recruiting. Maybe that stupid ass meme that floated around prior to the Sugar Bowl vs Bama gets reversed and it's Urban that actually makes Saban quit football. That last part may be a stretch
Which is not a good thing, because Sarah Silverman isn't funny, either, lol
John Cena is like the Make A Wish king. He is a good dude. You don't have to like his character in WWE (and a lot of wrestling fans don't), but you can't argue that in real life, he's anything less than an upstanding guy.
Whoa Nellie hit it right on the head.
Not to mention that if their 2014 teams met on the field, OSU would've kicked the shit out of Baylor. Baylor couldn't even beat the 2nd best team in the B1G, a team that OSU wiped the field with that year.
