Sounds like he lacks the maturity to make decisions and stick with them and/or just keeps playing the system. What a jerk! I wish him all the bad luck he can garner. Screw him! GO BUCKS!
Gee was a very good President. He may have had some faults, but who doesn’t. He was a very active supporter of everything about OSU and was publicly seen my many around campus. He didn’t keep holed up in his office, he was out amongst the people. Drake was a different person. He was a good President, but seemed to be out of touch with the people outside of the office. I do believe he mishandled the Urban matter as Urban should not have received any punishment in this matter. Now to who is the next choice. TRESS! He has all the qualities and capabilities needed to be the President of OSU. The problem is, how do the Trustees feel about him. As a side note, the Trustees shoulder a lot of blame in the Urban situation. They didn’t have balls enough to do what was right and worried only about public perception. It will be interesting to see who they come up with for the job.
The last person we need is an Obama as President of the University!
I sure wish some Ohio State friendly law firm would take on this situation. It would be interesting to subpoena all NCAA records relative to comparable infractions by other players from other colleges/universities to see what punishment they received. I think there would be some real discrepancies as to how the NCAA lacks consistency.
I do agree with you about this being litigated into the ground by those who support this. In regards to politicians, most of them these days are lawyers. That is why the country, and sports, are so messed up.
I am a big supporter of college sports and especially the Buckeyes. But let me play devil’s advocate. You state that schools are making money off of selling thousands of jerseys that pertain to individual athletes. Yes they are, but what amount of money is the college student getting, or saving, by the scholarship they are receiving for their abilities. Is this just a means for colleges to recoup some of the monies they are putting out for an athlete. And lest we not forget, the athlete is receiving not only a free education, but free top-notch medical care, rooming and board, and free tutoring. Not a bad deal if you ask most ordinary college students who are busting their butts to make it in college; keeping their grades up and maintaining a job to help offset their college expenses. So is it a bad idea to let the athletes to make money for use of their likeness? I sure there are lots of opinions. Mine is; don’t start the ball rolling with this idea. Who knows what they will want next. We already now have the “portal” to live with.
WOW!! You would have thought the the Bengals would have had someone there. But who really cares! GO BUCKS!
I was at a party last night, that happened to have a michigan fan in attendance, and when talk started about whether Harbaugh would leave after this season, some thought maybe we should hope they keep him. It seems to work out well for us with him there, almost as well as when Hoke was there.
It is mind boggling to know that Coach Day has barely touched below the surface into his bag of plays thus far. It will be exciting to see new ones displayed as the season progresses.
Very sad to hear of the passing of a Buckeye legend. R.I.P.; you will live on forever in our hearts.
Him willing to Gray shirt for the team shows his true commitment and dedication to being a Buckeye. And thanks to Chrisman for establishing that relationship.
We can always play one less conference game each year, like the SEC does. Apparently that makes you look stronger in the eyes of the committee. Weaker schedule better chances. (The committee sucks)
Thanks to Thad for all he did for Ohio State and it’s basketball program. He will always be a part of the Buckeye family.
Can’t wait for the season to start; it is going to be a great year.
Tell it lie it is coach. If that doesn’t fire the newbies up then they haven’t fully absorbed what it means to be a Buckeye and the meaning of THE RIVALRY. But I am sure it won’t take them long to get it.
Great insight into how the process works and how much detail and time goes into the process.
Tress might have been old school but he was a good coach who got things going in the right direction for Ohio State.
H U G E! Welcome Clark.
It will be interesting to see how things turn out in recruiting over the next several weeks. There are some really good possibilities. But one also has to have a little concern about any flips that could happen with any of our commits.
I can’t wait to try it out. And all the displays will be awesome. Maybe I should take some of my school up north friends; I wonder if they will offer Xichigan Smash Burgers, or should they be called Smash Xichigan Burgers.
UC can be a problem if we don’t come out strong and keep the pedal to the metal. Not only will Luke be amped up, but his whole team will be. They will want the victory for the prestige and for their coach. But Coach Day has been known to get amped up also.
I would tend to agree with you.
Seems kind of weird in some ways. I wonder what the rest of the story is behind all this; if there is a rest of the story.
I agree 100%. But If they allow it, the money they make can be used to help pay for the free tuition, food, housing and medical expenses. That would welcome them to the real world. You make money so you can pay for the necessities of life.
It is interesting that prices keep going up as we are led to believe that it is due to the cost of operational expenses rising. While that might be true, I was also led to believe that the reason for the contracts with TV’s was the amount of monies made from them. So one would think that with the large cash infusion from TV, that the Athletic Department could cover the increased costs without hammering the faithful Buckeye fans who would like to attend some games, or even have a season ticket. And at the end of each contract for broadcasting, they can up the amount charged to the broadcasting company; they can certainly afford it as they turn around and sell advertising slots. So the tv stations are happy making their big bucks from advertisers; Ohio State is happy making their big bucks from the tv stations, and get a little more on the side by raising the ticket prices to many Buckeye fans who already have tickets or want to buy some. More and more people will start staying home to watch games as time goes on. The average family cannot see spending the kind of dollars required to take the family to see a game, and that doesn’t include the cost to feed them at the game. It might be that games in the future become the rich mans sport as colleges seem to be reaching out to them. Take for example the new box seats being added at the stadium. They aren’t called suites, but they are much like them. I asked the on them out of curiosity, and while I don’t remember the amount, I know it was high; well high for someone like me. So we are losing seating capacity in order to add high end seats for people that want to pay more. I guess you might say the pricing is less than a suite, but more than the Club Seats.
One other comment, I hate the night games only because they take forever due to the ridiculous red hat guy that keeps coming onto the field to annoy all of us.
