Actually at the time he tweeted about not coming to play school, he had a 3.0 GPA. It just got lost during the firestorm of that tweet. I really think he was just having one of those stressful moments and that tweet was just a horrible lapse in judgement that will live on and on.

While I agree with some of your points Arizona. I must respectfully disagree with a couple as well. 

I was born in Arkansas and most of my family still lives there. I've lived here well over 30 years now. You said "they still call anybody up north Yankees." They might, but do you realize how many times I see the words "hillbillies" "rednecks" and "ignorant" when referring to people from the south? Truth be told, I've actually met more "hillbillies" up north than I ever have down south. There are intelligent well educated people all over,  just as there are ignorant hillbillies. It is not a matter of your geographic location.

I will own up to it. I was pissed off the WAY he left. I felt like he slapped the fans in the face with the "decision"

After reading his letter today, I was actually moved. I think it was heartfelt and sincere. His return is good for Cleveland sports and for the local economy. That's what I care most about. 

Comment 05 Jul 2014

Pretty sure he will be off the team if all this is true. I find it really sad and feeling sorry for the kid. He had an older brother that was shot and killed. I thought he was working hard not to fall into the same traps.

He actually mentored one of my co-workers sons while he was still in H.S and by all standards seemed like a really good kid. I pray he is able to get his life together and find some sort of peace.

Comment 29 Jun 2014

Yes, he told me he was parked on 2nd and Dennison if I remember correctly. He called the city to make sure it wasn't towed but they did not. I was surprised as well everything I hear is that is a good area.

Comment 29 Jun 2014

On a less than pleasant note, he got his car stolen while he was at work. It was stolen from Victorian village. The car was less than a year old but it's not like it was a high end vehicle. It's a Kia Soul for Gods sake!

My son is working Comfest. He's a pedicab guy (working thru college) his report so far on the topless girls are "no, none you actually want to see." Lol

Comment 21 Jun 2014

I'm sorry woodshed, but I do not agree with you at all. These folks all have day jobs or are students. Between keeping us fans up to date and working they are probably putting in 15 to 16 hrs per day. 

I know at the end of my 10 hr day the last thing I want to do is come home and have to do research and put in another whole shift. (free of charge I might add). All I want to do is come home, relax and catch up on what's going on with tOSU and they do that for us! Again free of charge. 

Thank you 11Warriors

Just to give a little insight (hopefully) on why employers force people to use IE.

I work for a huge healthcare system in the IT dept and can tell you they still use IE and that is their "standard". Some of the reasons are that there are something like 40,000 computers in our environment and thru the years there have been thousands of applications written that were specifically written to work with IE. 

It's just not that easy to change browsers when you have to test said applications to make sure every single one of them work with that new browser. This applies to both In house applications as well as vendor applications. Sometimes it's like pulling teeth to get a vendor to make even the smallest changes like an active x control or even a java setting. 

In our case, it would be a very costly undertaking in terms of both money and man power. Money they feel is better spent on other things.

Totally agree. I don't care personally if they smoke weed or not but if you know you'll be tested. 

I remember when one of our guys did the same thing. Mike Adams was it?  Was very disappointed. 

Comment 05 Mar 2014

Jason,

whatever it is you guys have done, the site and specifically the scrolling on the IPad seems to be much more responsive. Thanks so much! 

Comment 07 Feb 2014

I am also having the scroll problem on the iPad. It just kind of freezes. It seems to scroll better when it's in landscape than in portrait. Portrait is almost unbearable for scrolling. The scroll seems to be the biggest problem when in reading the comments as others have noted.

 

Thanks for all you do for us. I have no doubt these small bugs will get fixed.

Now that is how you make an entrance!! Love this band so much.

 

Go Bucks!

Comment 10 Aug 2013

@MOEPHIUS..Thank you. I was going to say the exact same thing. Urban is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Just because we don't know what the violation was does not mean the action was not deserved.

Also, If I am the parent of said football player or even the football player, I would be thankful OSU did not put my personal business out there. It really is not our business as to the why. If it's public it will come out eventually anyway.

Comment 21 Jul 2013

Proud to have you as a Buckeye Terry. Represent the Buckeyes with honor (which I'm sure you will) and you will forever be in our hearts.

Comment 06 Jun 2013

I will never forget him coming to a Tribe game wearing a Yankee hat. WTF? Yes, you can root for whoever you like but do you really come to a Tribe/Yankee game and root against your home team publicly? A Tribe team that came to the Q and supported your team! Classless. That would be like Braxton going to an OSU basketball game wearing Michigan gear. 

Comment 06 Jun 2013

Agree mostly with this except to say disappointed is an understatement. As many others have said, it's not that he left Cleveland it was the way he left. This city bent over backwards for him, including off the court. He left the Cavs high and dry with no time to even try and get other players to help replace him. I think he owed it to the city to at least be straight with the team if he was going to leave.

Of course I also blame the Cavs for putting all of their eggs in one basket. 

I give him major respect as a ball player because I do think he is amazing. I just wish he showed us the same respect.

Comment 03 Oct 2012

Here is another kid I feel really good about. He seems like a great kid.

I like how he wanted to commit early so that he was not a "distraction" to his school and team. I've been really impressed with the way he has handled himself so far. Welcome aboard Tyquan!

Comment 14 Aug 2012

I still absolutely get chills when I watch Kyle Dodson make his announcement. It never gets old.

Comment 08 May 2012

IMO this is not about one recruit, the football program or tOSU. This is much bigger than that. When we as fans and human beings get so crazed about a sport that we are willing to overlook things and just keep quiet when things aren't right, that is a sad statement on the human race. Then people have the nerve to blast Ramzy and the others who actually did the right thing? Shame on you. I hope those that did that never have children that need an adult to step forward for them one day. Think just a while back when everyone was blasting Mike Mcqueary for not doing something that fateful day in the locker room showers. People everwhere wanted his head. "I would have (insert violence of choice here)" was a common theme. So if this is the way people react to someone doing the right thing even if it hurts their beloved football program it's no wonder people don't get involved.

I don't care if the kid is 10 years old or 20 years old. He is someone's child. It was the right thing to do and I applaude Ramzy and the others for stepping up.
