College is now the epicenter of Bubble Wrap mentality.  Used to be a place of experience, learning new things/ideas and pushing the boundaries.  Now it's a place of safe spaces, one sides discussion and lack of personal responsibilities.

This is a tragedy, no doubt, and I'm sure a new tradition will pop up as a replacement but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  Olentangy could result in much more dangerous situations that is even more difficult to monitor safely.

Simple solution is to have OSU medical on the ready and inform everyone of how to spot issues like this and be quick to respond.  This guy might have been suffering during his jump and not even know it due to irresponsible alcohol use for all we know.

What was Dunlap doing on that play?  HB didn't need covered yet stepped back instead of a b line to Palmer.

I'll never understand some of these penalties they commit. I knew not to do any of this crap in 8th grade. Good Lord.

Nobody is saying Zeke doesn't have a point. The point being made here, is you can't have you team leaders popping off at the coaches. It instills an us them perception inside the locker room when it's not nots a unit thing. Did the coaches eff up?  Of course they did. Nobody is going to deny that. Should Zeke discuss his issues with the coaches?  Yes. 

Is popping off in the media going to solve anything that a meeting with the coaches couldn't have done? That's the problem.

I get people are super glad Zeke went off on the play calling but do you realize how bad that looks?  He looks Immature, Meyer looks like he can't control the locker room, media will start drilling into a needless story taking focus off The Game, recruiting could question the staff etc etc etc. 

 I get how good it feels to see a player do this but long term, it's a huge issue and will negatively effect OSU. For real.

I'm actually on board. Trash talk your coaches (even if right) only means the control of the team goes to the inmates. It's bad form to let the players control play calling due to media criticisms right after a tough loss. 

I say bench him at the opening series or two then let him back. Otherwise you just admit you can't control a locker room of 20 yr olds.

This team is lazy and lacks respect for the game a little. If this game doesn't teach these guys that just showing up is all you have to do then nothing will.
