Katie is a waitress at a BW3 here in Charlotte who is also a big Ohio State fan. I get all of my 'scoops' from her.

Good for the Puckeyes. Looking forward to the upcoming season.
I wonder if he'll quit the team like he did here and return to Florida for rehab?
If we have to wear these stupid alternative uniforms, better to do it in a non-rivalry game. Now maybe we can all breathe easy we won't screw up the look of our rivalry games.
ON the "developed here" slide was a big picture of Les Wexner. I wonder how long that stays up?
Probably not going to win me any friends on this topic, but the reason our D line was so good is because Tressel had nothing to do with coaching it. Our defense won the '02 NC and our defense carried us through many other seasons. Tressel coached the offense. With him at the helm, there were a few years of actual decent football but most of the time it was unwatchable.
Cooper was the beneficiary from the way we fired Earle Bruce (which I still don't understand.) Ohio State was trying to elevate their academic reputation which was no reputation at all. They had changed admission standards, going from any Ohio high school graduate can get in to needing a fairly high SAT score. The last thing the university needed was to be seen as nothing more than a football factory by firing a coach just because he lost a football game or two...or three.
Urban>Tressel. Not even close.
I've been hearing about the golden era of Ohio State football since the late 60's. The great thing about the Buckeyes is every generation is the "golden era."
I couldn't care less what recruits think. If a player is choosing us because of some silly alternate uni, then see ya later.
Hmmm...I wonder if Urban would have signed with ESPN instead of Fox if this segment would have aired???
As the article states, Wexner cut ties with Epstein years ago when the allegations first surfaced. Even though the relationship between the two from the outside seems a little bizarre, I'll reserve judgement until everything comes out.
Ryan Day will be HC at Ohio State for at least 7 years. Or until he knows something is about to hit the fan and gets out of Dodge two steps in front of the sheriff.
I know Epstein used to be Les Wexner's financial advisor. When the story about Epstein first broke years ago, Wexner dropped him immediately from that position.
Who is DJK?
Sexual harassment or even the accusation of it are a death sentence for most males on a college campus. Not just at Ohio State.
I've listened to Smith and one of my problems with the whole Urban to USC rumor is the last time the Trojans had a running QB, his name was Vince Evans back in the 70's. Urban has said repeatedly that his QB's must be able to run. Well, there's no one on USC's roster that can run the way Meyer wants them too.
Smith's podcast would be more enjoyable if he stopped swearing so much. He's borderline vulgar with his language.
Smith has trouble staying focused on what he's trying to say and wonders off in different directions too much. He was talking about Gibson's recruitment, then got sidetracked on how unfair the NCAA is. Back to Gibson and then back to the NCAA and so on. Maybe this will improve as he gets experience.
In all fairness, TCU or no TCU, our schedule is bad. No one has circled any of these games as must see. Like one comment from above, we're just going to have to grin and bear it for this year.
I don't believe for a second Johnny Ginter is related to anyone who went to Vanderbilt.
He could also tone down the foul language. I'm not a prude, but it gets a little old listening to him.
My problem with Zach's take is why would USC send Urban certified mail in an official USC envelope. I'm assuming both parties would want some degree of secrecy if this is really happening. Plastering USC all over the envelope would just lead to wild speculation and rumor. I have no idea what Urban will be doing a day from now let alone a year, but I'm calling BS on this take by Zach.
