When evaluating an employee it is not always about guilt or innocence it is the type of behavior you engage in or are around, that might put you at  risk...    I always think of the movie, along came polly, where Ben Stiller rates how risky a candidate is for life insurance... I can see NFL teams using risk matrices like that for the amount of money they are investing... 

So it is not just about not doing stupid things... you also have to not be around other people doing stupid things if you want a very high rating...   And maybe it isnt worth the money to give up all your stupid friends and behavior...  You have to figure out where you want to be on that graph and make decisions/ change behavior accordingly...

 its that consensual part that gets more and more gray on the fringes...  

And maybe it is just me... but there are things I know I would not have done had I really understand things better at a younger age... but you can't unfuck your history...

We have and have had an escalating hyper-sexually charged environment in athletics that is trending more and more towards deviancy.  

I am not commenting on Guilt or innocence.  Impossible to tell a this point...

but there are some sex cultue  issues at play... I am not even talking about seminars how at to treat women etc... Hopefully that is just obvious..   but I do think the sports world is on the fringe of sexual deviancy... I am not making excuses for them.. I feel sorry for them...

They cant have normal relationships due to time constraints <-- poor excuse I know.. but some of it is true...  So they seek other outlets and opportunities on the fringes... 

The 'pack' mentality accompanied with still developing brains is always a huge issue <-- I would never advise any girl to hang around athletes..  We all knew this in college. 

You have more sexually aggressive girls chasing after them, willing to do anything... and that really is a big issue, because once you get a taste for that, you will want to try that with the 'other' girls...  You can laugh that part off as speculative but there is a lot of truth in this.. and alot of these accusations revolve around things like that... I dont think this is an example of that... but I got to watch some of this type of behavior play out from my freshman year in high school through senior year of college with a couple of friends who later became people I dont want to ever see again... They needed help and became people I didn't even recognize.   

When parts of your normal conversations and nights out are ... 4-somes... , get her drunk, aggressive hookups... having parties to see who you can lure into a multi partner situation once they are compromised..   You have some issues.. some of it is not criminal.. but when you start to walk along those lines... your reality is blurred... and anything can happen...   and the behaviors usually escalate they don't just level off... 

I get some of our fans are sexually inexperienced and don't have experience with some of the fringe behaviors... but some of it is ... is down right scary...  And I think the schools need to start addressing it more pro actively with education and counseling... some of these boys will never have any hope of becoming men.

If possible, could you also do a story on Michigan's undefeated 1992 season.. it is one of my favorites...

For as much grief as john Cooper took for the 'tie'...  it was michigan that came into that game with 2 other ties on their resume...  And with a chance to go for it on 4th down late in the game, they played for a tie...   I will never ever fault cooper for that game...   And as most people forget.. Coop did go for it on a 4th down in his first OSu/Mich game that really gave that game to michigan...   I was at the infamous Greatest win in OSU history per Gordon Gee... but I didn't mind the tie.. It really cost michigan any shot at a MNC even before the bowl game...  

"love" that 1992 undefeated michigan team...  if they can't lose every game.. may they please abolish over time, and let michigan "tie" their way to an undefeated season... 

I was embarrassed for them.

If I was a Michigan fan... Sorry almost shot myself while typing that...  I would be more concerned about the coaching decision to throw out of my own endzone against a beastly pass rushing defense with a ball hawking secondary, when I basically had the game in control.   I realize they would have given up field position, but the way our offense was running at that point and our field goal kicker was kicking... not throwing was a much better option... Without that Pick 6, I am not sure we could win that game...

I am still amused  how Ohio State was the first team in the history of football to get awarded 6 pts for converting a 4th down, and the game was subsequently called, and the win was awarded to Ohio State on the spot(no pun intended).

Sometimes standing by a teammate is giving them a swift kick in the ass and telling them what they did will not be tolerated on this 'team', make amends if possible and change your ways or get out... If we went back to that... I think less athletes would even think about committing these crimes.

Instead all I seem to hear whenever incidents happen is how everyone is behind their teammate no matter what (but it almost seems they are being protected no matter the guilt or innocence, and they know that before they commit the acts) <-- That to me is the woosification of America.. No accountability or enforcement of the standards, just excuses and justifications... And Im not advocating rushing to judgement or giving the death penalty to someone who gets a parking ticket...

Very good points.. This is was my fear last year... that the spurs would make the finals... 

Comment 29 Mar 2017

So some of our fans don't know what all time means,

Some  of our fans don't know much about the history of OSU basketball.  Even if you don't have much time look up how many final fours we have been to. 

I want a coaching change as much as the next guy, but let's not marry that to these results. 

Some of our football fans really piss me off when they pretend to know basketball

Gator Basketball was second fiddle even when they were winning back to back titles...  Not that he would want to do it again....  UF is a lot like OSU... they have. Small amount of basketball fans... but if the team is really good the football fans will tune in...
