That one looked like Apple was supposed to pass Moore off to McMillan, because Powell was coming up to deal with the potential screen.  McMillan bit on the QB's eyes, and started to go forward and to the left, towards the screen set up, then Moore blew by him, and Apple couldn't catch up from 10 yards behind, because he was assigned a shallow zone.  Those three plays were really well designed by Tuberville, and I hope the play analysis guys at 11W do some more in depth analysis of what went wrong during those broken plays.

I don't mind if people want to sit during TV timeouts and maybe at Halftime to better see TBDBITL, but seriously, the only legitimate reason to sit is to conserve your energy for making noise the rest of the game.

Zero Tolerance policies should be an excuse to pay an executive minimum wage.  If you can't make a decision, you shouldn't be in charge of anything.

AndyVance, 

I hope his lawyers file some kind of 14th Amendment suit for using an official position to punish someone improperly against the DOE too, once they find correspondence between DOE and OSU Title IX administrators.

Comment 26 Sep 2014

He just needs to make sure the terms of any settlement state that the only way he can be paid is by eliminating jobs from the departments who compiled and wrote the report, and that for a total of 5 years, tOSU cannot take funds from another department to replace those jobs.  And as a side effect, it'll get the people who should have been held responsible for the Title IX ruling against the university fired.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

They might be letting him practice just to keep him in a structured situation, and for all we know, the B1G HQ knows about it, and is saying that he can't play, but practice is ok to help the student athlete in a substance abuse kind of situation.

The binturong of Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia) is also called the bearcat (and is the basis of the mascot, after the fact apparently).  Also, in its Latin name, Arctictis binturong, Arctictis means bear-weasel.  So this year we get to play the bear-weasels and the skunk weasels at home.

Especially if they got TBDBITL to play at the game for all scoring plays, and did Script Ohio, the Ramp Entrance, and a halftime show.  I'd pay for it even if it meant Mike Brown made money off of it.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

A lot of their stuff has always been pretty bad.  I'm pretty sure I remember them producing a Rapistburger T-shirt before they got a cease and desist from Big Ben's attorneys, back when that was going down.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Roby was getting killed most of that first game against the Colts (yeah, putting a future Hall of Famer against a rookie usually works out), but came up clutch in those two situations.  And Carlos Hyde, man, that OL for San Francisco didn't do much that was good during that game.  They got manhandled by the Bears DL, and couldn't get any run blocking going at all.

On the horse tails and manes... It's gotta be a rogue orchestra that needs more bowstrings.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Is there a lot to understand about this case? It's pretty obvious the Inquisition got a scapegoat and used it to save the Inquisitors' collective jobs.  Then, because it looks like the Inquisition has accomplished a good thing, they get a letter telling them they are good dogs again.  Even though the entire mess was created because the university gave up its responsibility in loco parentis, and obeyed the laws designed to grant adult students freedom from meddling parents.

"But he had to go because that way me and all my coworkers could keep our jobs even though we don't help get donations and inspire Buckeyes everywhere.  If he hadn't been fired, we could have had our budgets cut or even had to justify our existence."

-Random OSU Title IX administrator.

This just proves what I thought all along.  Waters was thrown under the bus by the Committee on Public Safety at OSU because multiple entities didn't like him and saw an opportunity to both enhance their departments and in the case of the OSU police, Compliance, and Title IX offices, make sure someone else took the fall.  If I decide to donate to the University again, I'll specify that it cannot be used for any administrative tasks, only scholarship funding.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

And regarding the sports media, I generally ignore it. Even though, yes, the B1G sucks right now, the media doesn't want to examine the seedy side of why other conferences do so much better on the field, because it would piss off their fans, and SEC fans with pitchforks are a whole lot more angry and loud than B1G fans (I think it's got something to do with mid-western values and learning to turn the other cheek).  Plus, when the biggest sports media outlets are in direct competition with the BTN, they have every incentive to try and destroy the BTN so that they can acquire media rights to the Big Ten's games.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

I agree with DJ, cry havoc and let slip the bagmen of war!!! Plus, can't Delany send some his goon squad to the SEC and PAC 12, and break some kneecaps among their bagmen?  I mean, we could at least take them out of commission for a few weeks during the season.

Shady Buck, if you want to do something less "interesting" (as in the Chinese curse) for a sign, you could do a Fist = 2, and then a "Buckeye Leaf" = 16, to compare and contrast the NFL's treatment of Josh Gordon as compared to Rice.
