Perhaps Gee was told by his NCAA contacts that OSU would have been banned this year anyway after Meyer was hired. I wouldn't be surprised if Gee has been talking to his higher-up friends "off the record" throughout the course of this year to see what would have happened had we self-imposed.

While I've always thought we should have self-imposed a ban last year, I still felt, like Gee says in the article, that we would have gotten hit with a ban this year anyway. Then again, given the timing (right after we're 12-0), this does kind of seem like damage control by Gee, and you have to wonder if he's just saying this to appease the fan base.

They should blow this up and post it in the Woody Hayes Center for recruits to see.

How come the ONLY white guy in the entire video gets skipped (1:50 mark)?!

Just kidding, don't want to start another lengthy cultural/racial/political debtate lol...

Exactly. It's a cultural thing, predominantly  a young, black male, urban, hip-hop culture. But you said "black people" in your original post, and not a particular demographic. You explained what you really meant and it's obvious you didn't mean to offend, so, no offense taken.

I agree it was stupid of the author to focus on that, but to imply that he would have done differently had he "hung out with black people" is equally ignorant. What if he hung out with Mayor Coleman, Gene Smith, the President, Cameron Heyward, Mike Doss, etc. etc.? All black people don't use that word.

Yeah, it looks like Maryland since he's doing it on a local station, and during a Wizards game. Plus, apparently his good friend/teammate just committed there as well.

Great article. I agree 100%. When Pryor committed these "crimes" he was 19 or 20. What he did--selling his own stuff-- wasn't even morally wrong; it was only wrong because a backwards, hypocritical institution (NCAA) said so. Fans are so quick to hate TP for breaking a stupid rule when, ego aside, he was a model student-athlete in nearly every regard. He was Academic All Big Ten, he was never in Coach Tressel's "dog house", he never got in trouble off the field (no DUIs, assualts, skipped classes weren't an issue, etc.), and his on-the-field achievements speak for themselves. Fans are directing their anger at the victims of a broken system instead of the system itself.
