Search the entire article. The word "Meyer" doesn't come up once.

Of course they don’t mention Meyer. They don’t want you to know that they are targeting Meyer so they just lay the breadcrumbs for you to make the links. Clever work, really.

Besides, Day is gonna go down for his rigged Spring Game improper benefit scandal. He’s done already. So now we just gotta take out the rest of the staff.

You just watch.

Has the person running that twitter account ever been to a concert?

The Tommy Dorsey Band doesn’t use speakers like that. At least that’s the band that was the bees knees when they were dominant.

Comment 23 Apr 2019

The things sitting on top of the speakers tell me that they’re turned off or it would vibrate all of them off in short order.

Those things sitting on top appear to be the racheting mechanism for the cargo straps holding them on the cart.

But I admit that if you rattle those things off then whoever is in front would go deaf.

What are they going to do, give Ryan Day a 10-year show-cause for promoting LJ to assistant HC?

Nope. Day’s gonna get a show cause for allowing improper benefits (in the form of a ring) being given by one of his players to a student during a “sham” kicking competition during the spring game!

There’s no way that he can deny he didn’t know what was going on! Show cause! Death penalty!

He has dyslexia. What's the over/under on how many teeth you have. I'll start and say 5.

Okay. We get it. 

As was pointed out by several Buckeye fans in this very thread, Gary has dyslexia. You can stop repeating it. You don’t have to defend him with every commenter in the thread.

You said your piece now please refrain. I cannot stand when a Buckeye fan rants up and down the threads and I expect other fans to act the same way.

Comment 23 Apr 2019

why do you read and post on 11W?  I honestly and truly don't get the motivation.

I’m not Maine, but I will say that I enjoy having different perspectives. We get too insular as it is.

I don’t appreciate trolls or those coming to gloat, but I also don’t do that shit on Michigan boards, either. And, so far, Maine has some takes that we may not agree with, but he’s not acting (poorly) like a Buckeye fan like West Campus does. That’s an intolerable Michigan troll.

Also, Cincy, it’s a good question. I will read the sites for other teams but have rarely felt the need to comment.

They could also be indicative of a lack of intelligence.

Sure, I guess so.

But when you’ve been presented evidence of the former idea, why wouldn’t that explain the low score? Especially with knowledge that the individual was Academic All B1G?

Comment 21 Apr 2019

It’s nice to know that others appreciate the suggestions to other commenters helping to improve the forum topics and reducing clutter on the site.

Appreciate your support.

Comment 21 Apr 2019

What position, and school? Please give some information so we don’t have to read articles. 

100% correct.

Probably could have nuked the forum topic itself.

It'd be helpful to know the person, where they’re from, their position, their graduation class, and maybe even a take from the OP themselves about what they think. And an informative title to the topic would help as well.

Too many of these could be comments in one of the recruiting threads, where at least there is likely more information about individual recruits within. Here, we are at a complete loss and it shouldn’t be on the reader to Google all of the info to get up to speed.

Comment 20 Apr 2019

Thins is, what else are people supposed to do in this forum other than comment, speculate, voice options and otherwise yap away? It's not like we have any decision-making power with the program.

Maybe give it a little time? You don’t understand the message from Baldwin. I thought that I did understand that he feels that life is bigger than football, and that he isn’t at the right place.

Who’s right? I don’t know. But i’ve read too many times about how he’s a coward and afraid of competition, how he’s indicative of the spoiled generation, that he only came to fleece the team of their rehab facilities, etc. Maybe we can cool it on some of these hot takes?

Nobody knows the truth but people are burying the kid before knowing the truth. That’s where I’m disappointed.

Comment 20 Apr 2019

But then it’s not as easy to blame one person, which is what we really want.

JTBIV fucked us over by not leaving school with a year left. Meyer fucked us over by playing favorites and then having the gall to say that Haskins wasn’t ready. Day fucked us over because he said that Haskins wasn’t ready, and he allowed Meyer to start JTBIV, and he brought in Baldwin who is a bad character guy because he quit on us and Day should have recognized that in him.

I WANT MY POUND OF FLESH!

Comment 20 Apr 2019

while in seven years, Meyer won one and played for two, in a format that was easier to get into.

Look, I loved Tressel, but you make a lot of leaps in your reasoning. I also think that it’s reasonable to argue that Tressel was a better OSU coach (although I personally would take Meyer).

How is it easier to make it to the title game now?

Meyer only had 6 seasons to try to get to the title game, as he couldn’t participate his first year, which was beyond his control [And he would have likely been in the game that year over Alabama and playing Notre Dame.]

So, while I like Tressel, I dont think that it’s cut and dry that he’s a better coach, and it’s almost impossible to compare the two because the league changed so much. For instance, Meyer gets slammed for not winning the B1G title as much, but Tressel was credited for tying for winning the conference in years where he lost to the co-champ. And that would now not be considered as winning the conference. You really can not compare them equally.

Comment 19 Apr 2019

Let's talk about how much Harbaugh and TTUN suck - that always makes us feel better.

West Campus, are you playing a Buckeye or Wolverine fan with this comment. I get confused when you have switched back and forth.

I’ll say it again, it’s alright to be a Wolverine fan and be on 11W. A few on here don’t like it, but most tolerate it and some even enjoy the interaction, as long as it's respectful.

But we don’t like trolls that act like fans and then start shitting on the Buckeyes because they think it’s funny.

Comment 19 Apr 2019

But why did it take until after the spring game to come to this conclusion?

Maybe he was going to transfer after the semester, which is winding down soon. And, if that’s the case, he’s doing the team a solid by not transferring in the middle of the semester and screwing up the team APR.

Two sides to everything. What some see as a negative I see as a positive.
