Ok so a one game suspension? And the player standing up is sort of apples and oranges if said player is not asked to speak. As for Vrabel, of course I meant if he were invited. I am just trying to think of similar types of personalities who may be more likely to do something like this. And yes I think there should be repercussions -- the national embarrassment that Sark brought upon himself is one. I think it's enough. And we do not know what was said behind closed doors between Haden and Sark, just like we don't know how Meyer or O'Brien would respond in private either. The suspensions are getting a little out of hand in my opinion. He feels sheepish and it was not that harmful of an action in my opinion.

I guess you can deflect make a jokes now about it now but let us not forget that you are the one who felt compelled to start a forum topic on this. And for the record I am not the one downvoting you. All of those were real questions I asked, don't imagine you have answers for any of them. I am willing to wager you would have a much different viewpoint if this were Kerry Coombs or Mike Vrabel at an OSU event. Just saying.

You are calling for some sort of punishment but don't even know what you want it to be, or why apparently. Glad you are not an AD.

Comment 28 Aug 2015

So what exactly do you want to happen here? Suspend the coach? Does that benefit the institution and the players? Does it benefit him? Who has he harmed again?

Would you want him punished if he got up to the mic and cursed but had not been drinking? Would you want him punished if he had been drinking but did not curse while speaking? What exactly makes you so riled up here? Have you considered that this is sort of a black eye and pretty embarrassing for Sarkisian? Do you think that is sort of a punishment in itself? Is that a repercussion for that action? How many games suspended? 3? 4? Should we take away some wins from last year? It's just so stupid, this is barely a story, sorry I cant get on board.

Does Cardale Jones embarrass the university when he tweets at Ronda Rousey or Joakim Noah? How many games for that? Was he drinking when he tweeted those out?

Comment 27 Aug 2015

I think this is simply a byproduct of camera phones being everywhere.

If this man has legitimate substance abuse problems, that is a different issue. I don't think a punishment is the right move in that case either. Maybe I am old-school, but in my opinion, no victim = no crime. And if the victim is "society" than that is frankly an even bigger load of horseshit. Good luck on your pitchfork crusade against a football coach that drank and cursed at a booster event.

I would be a little surprised to learn that Urban and the staff had the Ohio State all time running backs in bowl games statistics on hand before or during that game, much less game plan to break it. Maybe I am wrong but that doesn't seem likely to me.

in the days/weeks leading up, most certainly. But I was talking about waiting until the last minute, a few hours before kick.

So I think we are both right maybe? Just depends on definitions of "early" and "late" it seems. Regardless, I am not much of a chicken counter before egg hatching kind of dude. We will see what happens, whenever I hear a team is supposed to be one of the greatest of all times, they typically stumble somewhere along the way. I grew up in the nineties...it certainly happens.

Comment 19 Aug 2015

Yeah, just go down there and wait. I went to the StubHub kiosk less than two hours before the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans this past year. Our group got 6 seats together in the 4th row of the endzone. $114/piece. That's not a typo. O, and it was the endzone that Zeke ran into.

Comment 12 Aug 2015

I enjoy this show as well, but am a little late to the game. I am halfway through season 2. I love the dialogue and think this is a very intelligent show.

Didn't expect anyone else on this board to watch this.

Comment 10 Aug 2015

Downvotes for your unwarranted snobby attitude and condescending tone that come out of absolutely nowhere and contribute nothing to the thread, as per the community guidelines. You sound like a child.

Comment 10 Aug 2015

You are certainly right about Burger and Fada, amongst others we are probably omitting. I should have distinguished between the preferred walk-ons and the ones that have to try out and don't travel.

Just like everything else in life, if you are expendable, you can't really afford even one fuck up.

Comment 10 Aug 2015

The converse of this is that the team actually seeks out walk-ons that have higher GPAs and will be likely to. Programs like OSU have the luxury of picking from a lot of walk-ons, most in fact do not make the team at all. They are likely great kids, but at the end of the day they are warm bodies for running and hitting that can basically be swapped out.

If your grades dip or you get a DUI or something as a walk-on, see ya later. Excluding possibly Bo DeLande and other coaches' sons from pipelines.

Comment 10 Aug 2015

have no potential for playing time

Antonio Smith walked on and I believe he was first team all Big Ten in 2006.

As for the rest of your questions, why do you come to this website? Do you love Ohio State football? Do you watch highlight videos? Do you ever pay for tickets and attend the games to see it up close and in person?

The obvious answer is because they love Ohio State football and want to get as close as they can to it. Some are just a little more hands-on than others. Ohio State walk-ons are no scrubs either.

We improved on defense, looks like Michigan improved its head coach. We will see, this year they may struggle, but I am not gonna go around counting chickens just yet. I grew up in the 90s, lots of loaded teams saw their dreams die the last weekend in November.
