I could have sworn this was still there in footage from the late 60s and early 70s Vietnam protests. I took an Music History class and the professor had attended OSU in the late 60s (and my friend's dad says it was still there when he was here for Undergrad through JD 1966-1972) and he had home video including the Castle too.
He is a class act. Too bad he went to Duke.
There was also a strong "suggestion" in the Dear Colleague letter that they revisit any possible cases from the year's reporting (plus, the Dear Colleague letter was issued in April, 2011, only one school year after the accusations occurred).
He got removed to cover the UM administration's butts. Because the new rules were implemented by Department of Education after the incident occurred, but covered all ongoing cases, and because lag time for Cleary Act reporting is usually 2 years, the investigation was revisited. The real question is whether or not he was a scapegoat or really did commit some sort of crime (I would decline to put odds on either one). Either way, he had to be expelled, because allowing him to graduate would have been problematic (the Cleary Act is a lot like Trademark, in that if you don't appear to be vigorously enforcing it, you have a lot to lose), in that the DoE could use it as part of a case pour encourager les autres by threatening UM with loss of the ability to grant Federal Financial Aid. Therefore, if you are an administrator who would clearly lose their job if Federal Financial Aid was lost, you are going to have every incentive to err on the side of caution and expel him, even if a police investigation did not turn up anything or result in any kind of disciplinary action closer to the time that he was first accused.
I'd like it if he sued UM too, just to get more information out there about it (sunlight as the best disinfectant and all that). However, you have to look at it from his perspective. Unless he thinks he can come back and get his degree, or if he's threatened with a civil suit from either the victim or UM (for his scholly money from the past few years, in order to look compliant with Cleary Act), why would he sue? It's pretty much a lose lose unless either of those things happens.
Apparently the one that doesn't exist. I must be having an odd computer day. Because it says my username, then no comment displayed, then the comment asking about the comment.
I know this is incredibly off topic, but can anyone read my comment? Because I can't.
Monkeys and Pigs are flying, cats and dogs living together! The NCAA is trying to justify its relevance to those who completely despise it, including me. I don't trust what they found out about any case anymore, since they couldn't find any cause to punish far more egregious flaunting of rules than discounted tattoos and over-payment for work. These secondary violations exist so that the mighty NCAA can come down on anyone they want to at any time for them, to bring them back in line with exactly what the NCAA's brass want. There's a really good quote I won't use on here because it's sort of politically charged, but the gist of it is that it is much easier to rule when all people are criminals, because then all you have to do is chose who to punish, and when. That is the NCAA's entire governing philosophy.
I'm hoping that the current staff reaches out to Alex Boone to talk to Baugh about alcohol abuse and help to set him straight (about the best example of overcoming alcoholism from the Buckeyes that there is).
I'm hoping this is on a bulletin board at the WHAC. Plus a quote from WWII Japanese Admiral Yamamoto, "We have awoken a sleeping giant and filled it with a terrible wrath."
That's a slightly different situation, because Jackie Robinson had played Pro baseball for several years in the Negro Leagues (which were honestly just as tough as the MLB some years), and Sam hasn't played any pro ball yet (yeah yeah, the SEC pays players, I know). It's much more of a risk with Sam because he hasn't yet played professionally, and even though he was one of the top performers in a very competitive conference, and should be a good NFL player, it isn't nearly as sure a bet as the Dodgers taking Robinson on.
That video will follow him, however, in cases like this, if it is a first offense, I'd prefer to only charge him with a misdemeanor, put him in some anger management classes, probation and community service. No need to throw him in jail very long for this. Now if the guard needs any medical expenses, he should be forced to pay for that.
yeah, I saw that in Meechy's column too.
I think if I'm a smart NFL owner/GM, I act like I won't take this Sam kid because of bias against gays, then make sure he falls to me. Because frankly, you don't get to be Co-Defensive player of the year of the SEC without being very good at football. And honestly, what matters is his production on the field, not who he dates off of it.
I was actually having flashbacks to the 2007 NC game. Percy Harvin tearing up a decent and highly rated D, and a defense stifling one of the best offenses that year. I had to turn it off about halfway into the 2nd quarter.
But seriously, it would be hard to restrain myself from slapping Mark Emmert if I ever saw him in person. He isn't enough of a man to get punched.
Right. The NCAA doesn't recognize anything that happened in 2010 for the Buckeyes, so doesn't that mean we get to keep all of our seniors from last year?
I can't even be that mad about the FERPA hypocrisy, because they A) have to have permission to publish althete's GPAs (probably comes boilerplate in the initial signing for scholarship), and B) North Carolina is getting away with it too, and for NCAA violations (so why couldn't OSU just pulled that stunt with Bobby DeGeronimo and Tatgate?)
He seems very very qualified. Plus if we ever get a QB like Jameis Winston, he can pull out the lasers and fix his eyes.
The city might not have the appropriate equipment, and it might actually damage some equipment, but most seed dispensers (a lot can be tractor or truck mounted) can be converted to salt dispensers in a pinch. You just have to rinse the living heck out of them before you put seed in them again, or you get dead grass.
Ohio State is managing Nationwide Arena as well as the Schott, because they'll do it for less than the city was paying its last management team, and because they are more competent than the city's management team for Nationwide.
High ankle sprain is what I heard, but again, no good evidence to back me up.
Johnson seems like the kind of hire Urban made because he'll stay put, even if he ends up as the actual DC at some point.
