You had to create a new profile to re-vibe a dumb ass narrative against Luke? 

Because that team didn't lose some of it's best players? Because Luke had full control over the team? Because the players and the entire program wasn't in shock over Tressel's resignation? 

Some of you guys are morons plain and simple.

She said yes, initially. Women actually have to be smarter. There's no empowerment in this sort of activity whether consensual or not.

Whoring around, in general, puts you in a position of danger whether you're male or female.

Nah. I'll believe the police because there was enough evidence for them to be charged, and really fast to boot. But, I'm going to be more discerning any time someone opens their mouth with an accusation.

You guys want to know the sure fire way to avoid this crap that should be taught to the players? Stop having one night stands. Stop going after the girls for flings. Actually get to know women. Take them on a date. Court them. Be a damn man. Stop pretending that you're 'ballas' and something special. You're not. You're a damn big kid, who got genetically lucky, and then hit the lotto getting to play for THEOhioState. You're not entitled to kidnap other people and rape them because of this. Grow some stones.

What in the Sam Hill went through Riep's and Wint's mind that they would think this is actually a good idea? How is it possible that two players who are in close proximity to teammates and coaches could harbor these tendencies and not be noticed by others? How are their mama's not down at the county jail right now putting her size 6 straight through their sorry ass?

These are just some of the things that go through my mind.

This is more than just allegations. This is a charge by the police, which means they found enough evidence to do so.

They're still entitled to due process but this is a step above a gal just calling up hysterical and alleging stuff.

I don't know. I personally think he stays at Cincy a few more years and I'm darn curious to see what he builds because he's had some coups with players. They're poised to be top 2 the next several years in that league.

As much as he wants to coach for the Buckeyes, I'm not convinced he'll be successful as a HC here. I don't really have a rational reason for it.

But I do think he can take ND to consistent CFP based upon his connection to the RC Church and Cincinnati. I think he owns the Catholic Schools all over the nation if he goes there. That's just a hunch. I also think there's less pressure for him in South Bend than Columbus. Everyone keeps talking about Kelly with 10 win seasons and good recruits. I think Luke takes that and doubles down and gets better recruits and has 11 win seasons. I also think the fact that Luke won't berate players on national tv and drop F bombs in front of everyone helps. It actually helps a lot. I sincerely believe ND boosters want more of a traditional smash nose guy than a loud mouth that gets pretty good results but then gets embarrassed by Alabama.

Just my opinion.

Ohio State is a huge campus it can be overwhelming for kids from smaller towns. This factor plus the busy schedule and practices can also trigger depression and other issues. The basketball season is longer and drawn out and I would suspect more time alone instead of constantly being in group settings where your mind is distracted. 

Stay off the phones, computer and internet young man. Take some time in silence and surround yourself with friends.

Good piece. Memory eternal to all who reposed on the helicopter.

Perhaps the mind and heart shouldn't be so dichotomous? Perhaps we need to center our mind in our heart?

Comment 24 Jan 2020

Do you guys realize that out of our starters, A. Wesson is the only senior? We have one RS Jr. and Kyle young who's playing decent and Kaleb Wesson whom Holtmann is trying to compensate to make-up for the in experience. Most of these guys are Freshmen and Sophomores who haven't played together. One has an injury that has him sitting out, one is playing with injured ribs. You guys are expecting freshmen to come in and light the place up because you want what you want right now?

Folks who are calling for Holtmann's head or, for some reason, think they know what's going on in the locker room do me a favor. STHU.

I mean the strength of the ACC is going to change. FSU is going to improve with Norvell substantially. And I think even BC improves with Hafley sooner than later.
