Brewster, I have a few responses. First, I have seen you post today that people should not be commenting on how this affects OSU. Well let's be honest, the reason these articles are posted here is because it affects OSU. Someone can be appalled by the situation AND interested in the repercussions to OSU.
Second, it is not uncommon for fans or alumni of the University to say "we" or "our" when referencing OSU (sports, medical center, student union). I do it myself. Hell, I believe there even was an article on 11W about it before.
