Im sure Andrew would have told us if he wasn't busy grandstanding on Twitter. Too soon?

Andrew Lind was the go-to guy for all things uniform related. He even ran and may still run a page with the Ohio State uniform history. But then he decided to quit 11W without telling anyone via some self righteous, holier than thou Twitter rant about a "difference in ethics" amidst the Zach Smith scandal

HS

Ah, thank you sir. I avoid twitter as much as I can

It was a "difference in values," and you call this a righteous, holier than thou Twitter rant?  I was saddened to see him go, but I hardly think he handled it in an improper way.

HS
Brohio's picture

There are better ways to part ways with a company without sandbagging them publicly for retweets. I don’t think Andrew is a scumbag, just extremely immature. 

HS
ChicagoBuckeye10's picture

I don't agree, but fair enough Brohio.

More importantly, I hope somebody tells us what jerseys we're wearing on Saturday.

HS

Na bra. On 11W, it's necessary to read through 3 thread hijacks, 25 dumb posts by resident Cliff Clavens, 30 supposedly humorous posts, which are just tweaking the previous post by a word or pun, and then maybe, MAYBE, someone will answer the post question.

Barney Fife lives, and he lives among us.

It's called in person, face to face. I had a sales guy quit a number of years ago; sent an e-mail saying he resigned and told me where he parked the company car and mailed the keys. He couldn't sell water in the desert, but that was a classless, chicken shit move, as is this.

Announcing on Twitter that you are quitting a job covering Ohio State football on the day before the opener, citing "a difference in values" is not exactly the textbook way to leave a job with bridges intact, just sayin'.

HS
Defiance's picture

I have decided to part ways with Eleven Warriors due to a difference of values.

IMHO, this just drips with a "looking down my nose" tone of tweet and isn't a GR8 look for anyone involved.

I'm sure he has his reasons and I respect that 1000%. It seems a little like the BoT member who felt the need to go public when he stepped down and had some holier than thou statement that seemed a little unnecessary as well.

Best of luck to Andrew wherever he goes but I wouldn't be surprised to see him land at another Ohio State site which shall remain nameless.

Same here.  I used to hang on every update but I have come to the realization that as long as our preferred walkons are higher ranked than a third of TTUN's scholarship class, we will have enough talent.  I enjoy getting to know them when they sign or enroll and appreciate the deep background this site provides.  Beat TCU!

I never liked Lind's demeanor at all. He always carried this sense of entitlement to him, and he made numerous comments regarding political and social issues that would not fly for a normal member at all. He was not even close to Birm...honestly I was happy to see him go. No loss really

HS
kmp10's picture

They're probably wearing the same Earle Bruce era nonsense they've worn since Meyer made the change in 2013. The unis are still one of the better uniforms in college football, but the tweaked pant stripe and the BS jersey stripes have taken away from what was once the best uni in the country.

HS
Iwannagobacktoohiostate's picture

Ditto.

Never was a fan of the Earle Bruce Wisconsin jerseys and pants. Need gray sleeves, bigger numbers and less Nike, Athletic Block O and B1G advertisements all over the place.  The shirt itself says Ohio State, lose the pointless logos.  If you have B1G on the helmet, why is it also on the jersey but not the pants?   Stupid. Why ruin a classic look.  Might as welll make more room and add BUCKEYES on the front of the jerseys and put B1G on the pants just... because...

someone post an Eddie George photo wearing the true Ohio State football uniform.

The gigantic numbers on the shoulders worked with the oversized shoulder pads (complete with neck rolls) players wore in the mid-1990s, but they wouldn’t work today.  I’m all for making the 2015 Sugar Bowl/CFPCG uniforms our full-time duds, though.

For the record I have daughters.  Two of them competed in the Miss California pageant.

If it was a joke, it was a bad one. 

FWIW there are plenty of OSU students who have 11W accounts. Some might even be cheerleaders. Would they take it as a joke?

I feel the same way about Beth Mowins on this site.  She takes an awful lot of ribbing from fellow 11Ws.

Fair enough. But she’s a grown woman, a professional public figure who’s paid quite a bit for her job. She expects some amount of criticism.  Unlike a group of 18-22 year old college students who support the local team.

And if you truly felt that it’s wrong for people to talk badly about Mowins, why would you do the same if only about another person/people?

30 years in the Navy - I’ve been called far worse by far more successful people. That’s not the point. It doesn’t make it right. It doesn’t make it classy. And it doesn’t make it acceptable for grown men to publicly disparage the appearance of 18-22 year old college coeds on the Internet. Especially on what is supposed to be a Buckeye fan site.

It’s not a good look; frankly I’m embarrassed for the commenters who did it.

Relax for christ's sake.  This is a public buckeye football message board.. have a little emotional self control once in a while Navy.  My God.  PC this..

NavyBuckeye91's picture

I was exercising self control. I called out a fellow user for something that was a baseless and classless comment “hating on” OSU’s cheerleaders. There was no drama.

It’s got nothing to do with being PC. It’s got everything to do what Ohio State, it’s fans and graduates are supposed to represent. Especially in light of recent events, I would think commenters here might be just a little more cognizant if what they type.  

But you’re probably right. Better to just take the laisez faire approach to things. I mean, we’re all anonymous here, so let’s just act like a bunch of judgey, condescending assholes.

As long as it's not the storm trooper unis we wore against TTUN. It's not that I don't like them it's that I like our traditional whites so much better. And the unis we wore in the Playoff in 14 were the best. But I think those are long gone. Haven't seen those since we lost to PSU in 16.

It is a so-called "neutral" site game.  So does that mean we have to wear an away jersey?  If there is ever a time for an alternate jersey, a neutral site game would be it. It is neither home or away (by technicality not reality).

  1. Most of us are old (Get off my lawn!)

  3. A couple of douchnozzles think the cheerleaders are substandard and NavyBuckeye about to beat their ass for being douchnozzles, and rightfully so.
