I prefer Apple, but I generally see it breaking down like this. Apple is better for standard use. More reliable OS. Android is better for people who like to do more than call, text, web browsing, basic app usage. No doubt Android is more customizable and widely compatible. I think that’s the trade off for the inevitable Android bugs.
On Golic and Wingo this morning, they were hitting Urban pretty hard for repeatedly addressing the situation without saying anything new. Golic then said something that I think is the truest thing I’ve heard the media say. He said that Urban doesn’t seem to believe the allegations, but he can’t say that, so he’s repeatedly dancing around it. I think that’s a pretty accurate opinion. It’s not going away, though, until he stops talking about it.
Win or lose, I’d rather play than sit the bench. I think that trumps all. It’s not like they’re waking up on Saturday expecting to lose. Every player is (should be) thinking they’re going to win when they step on the field.
I don’t think Haskins will throw picks because the corners are good. More of a combination of inexperience and too much confidence. I’m expecting a season of frustrating mistakes. I hope I’m wrong, but Haskins seems like a gunslinger type QB.
Haskins might throw an early pick or two and they’ll get some false confidence, but this is at worst a smaller than expected victory. There’s just too much of a gap right now.
Sportscenter became something unwatchable. Strongest Man and lumberjack competitions disappeared. The internet killed the need to watch highlights. It’s equal parts their ineptitude and my interest.
The anti-seize won’t hurt anything, but it will annoy any mechanic to take the wheels off. You wear one drop of that stuff all day if you don’t notice right away.
I think we’re off the rails already. I’ve seen McMurphy called more names than I can count. Historically, that would get you down voted faster than anything. We’re not quite to Facebook levels, but there’s no doubt been a serious drop in comment quality. It’s kind of an echo chamber for unintelligent rambling and ignorance. So, basically, we’ve caught up with the rest of the population.
If you owned a company and your best employee was all over the news as an alleged criminal, would you not cover your ass? Or just go all in with an advertising campaign? “Here at Gmac44135, we employ *murderers”.
Yea, maybe it’s a knee jerk reaction, but you can’t take the PR hit by not suspending pending investigation. There’s exceptions to everything, but generally speaking, people who do the right thing don’t get accused (falsely or not) of these things. Sort of like nothing good happening after 10:00 PM.
Chris Hardwick was recently cleared of abuse allegations. He probably knew his ex was trouble and he would’ve been better off to get away from her sooner. Maybe (definitely) the social climate has swung too far in that direction, but that’s kinda how a correction happens.
If you’d like to read that again, I compared the fan base reaction to allegations against a coach. I could compare the actual events to what happened at Baylor, albeit on a lesser scale. But I didn’t.
Coach is accused. Fan base refuses to believe coach could’ve done something wrong. Seems similar to Penn State when you put it that way, right?
Good thing they’re not the ones doing the internal investigation then, huh?
It’s a fine line between arguing against premature firing and blind support. Administrative leave is that fine line. In my opinion, there’s a lot of people taking one side or the other. Perception is reality. Speaking objectively, the OSU fan base looks like it’s blindly supporting Urban. Right or wrong, I don’t see many defending Urban who don’t have OSU ties. Probably because the sensible ones who err that way know better than to publicly support him without knowing everything.
You’re on the wrong side of the facts here, and the “fake news” makes you look unintelligent. Urban’s statement said as much. “I apologize for the way I handled those questions”. His denial was fuel to the fire once it was logical to assume he knew of the 2015 allegations. Simple.
The media is overzealous and Urban admitted to lying at a press conference. But sure, let’s throw stones at the media. I think it’s pretty early to sling mud in any direction. The blind support from this fan base is a bit disgusting to me. The same fan base that still blasts Penn State fans for their blind support of Paterno. Just say less. Let this play out rather than put yourself on the wrong side in hindsight.
Exactly this. Such an avoidable mess. It would even be fair to say “We’re continuing to look into it. Once we’ve done that, I’ll address the media”.
Disagree wholeheartedly. It matters what a public figure says publicly. His statement acknowledges such.
Don’t look at it as lying to the media. It’s lying publicly. The media is just the outlet of the information. You can’t lie to the world and get caught in it. It’s a matter of dishonesty/morality. If it ends up that he lied in that quote, he has problems. He could walk that comment back and apologize for that with some explanation. “I didn’t know how much I was allowed to say, I shouldn’t have commented on it” would be one such instance.
You can call me whatever names you choose, but if this news broke about Nick Saban instead of Urban Meyer, you wouldn’t be defending him.
Everyone blasting McMurphy. You are part of the problem. Sometimes you have to look in the mirror and admit you don’t like what you see. At the very least, there’s more here than previously admitted. 7 years later and the cover-up is still worse than the crime.
If it’s none of their business, tell them it’s none of their business. Not a lie.
I don’t see how it plays out any other way. Maybe the exception of Shelley falling on the sword. Her saying she never told Urban is pretty much the only proof you could have that he didn’t lie at the presser. That’s really what this is. At best, it’s a botched press conference that could lead to firing a Hall of Fame coach. At worst, he ignored DV until it became public knowledge.
I don’t think Bieber has an extremely bright future, so I wouldn’t hesitate to move him. There’d have to be a little more in it for the Indians, though. Harper and a lower level prospect with untapped upside. Harper is just as much a psychological upgrade as he is a performance upgrade. Getting him in that lineup gets the guys fired up, and fixes a hole in the batting order. Don’t get crazy, but go after him.
The National Championship already did that.
115 pitches to record 9 outs and allow 14 runs. That’s spectacular. Almost unbelievable.
Yes and no. There’s an argument to be made for recruiting location bias. Urban isn’t scouting kids from Nowhere, Ohio. These kids get missed in recruiting all the time. You need some sort of stage to get discovered. It’s not like these schools play a national schedule. There might be more talent in Georgia or there might just be a bias towards southern states. There’s no way to know for sure.
