The tomb that is the Schott...... Like some other posts, I would like to see St. John's utilized more and it pains me to think of it potentially going away. Its not only great for basketball games, but what a fantastic place for Skull Sessions.. To me St. Johns is more representative of what a college basketball arena should be.
I am curious if tOSU or any college for that matter offers a class or provides some guidance on dealing with the negativity stemming from social media etc.. Social media in a sense provides anyone with a direct line of communication to someone else and I can see how the negativity could really weigh on the young, impressionable and perhaps fragile minds of these KIDS.
When taking everything into consideration, was this the best game the Buckeyes have ever played? I may say that in my lifetime at least it is the best game I have ever seen.
Herbie and others in his position are held to particular (and often very strange) standard by the public/fans of which will never even remotely know what that is like. Herbie has represented tOSU well since he was a player, but at the end of the day has a job to do. If you don’t like what he says or if you don’t like his delivery, as ridiculous as that may sound, that’s fine. You are entitled to that. However, when it reaches a level of delirium and is so inappropriate that he opts to move… C’mon people. CHILL OUT. He has a job, he does it well and at the end of the day he is still a Buckeye. Let’s not forget that.
I see no issue in letting a kid sit a few plays IF you see him struggling mentally. Hopefully you can quell some of the emotion that I imagine is so easy to get caught up in and as soon as that subsides get them back out there. This kid has talent and he's going to recover immensely. I imagine these haters will be singing a different tune after the remainder of the season.. Go Bucks.
If you can make it to the Skull session I definitely recommend it. Then revel in the beauty that is OSU on game day. There is nothing like it. Enjoy it, man! Go Bucks!!
