I took exception to your silly claim that he's more Buckeye than us because he played football.

Becuae he IS a Buckeye. He was a member of the team...something you, I, and 99% of people on here cannot claim. You think being a fan makes you more of a Buckeye than a former player? Come on now. 

And for the record, I’m not crying, I’m screaming confirmation bias  

Comment 14 Jan 2020

When you find out, let me know so I can block all posts about people crying about ESPN being out to get us. Then again, there won’t be many posts left to read...

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Of course you will, because confirmation bias. You're hanging on the words of TWO ex-players with questionable character as if its concrete proof that OSU players don't like KH and that he is indeed a Fake Buckeye.

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Surely there should be plenty of interactions between Herbstreit and the players that show a positive relationship

Do you not understand basic human psychology? We focus on the bad. Just because a FEW players(with questionable character) have come out in criticism of Herbstreit, does not, in any way, serve as proof players or the administration don't like him....unless, of course, confirmation bias.

Aggravated Menacing....not skipping court. But nice try.

And you brought up "embarrassing the university" in an earlier you'll take the word of someone who actually has embarrassed the university? 

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Do you even understand what you're doing?

Well for one, this story's been out there since at least 2012 and no one has accused it of being false.  Not any players on the team at the time, not any coaches at the time, not Kirk Herbstreit, no one.

Is there a reason that no one, other than TP, have voiced this opinion? As is typical with confirmation bias, it's easy to focus only on what benefits your narrative.

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Whats logical about suggesting Hines is lying with absolutely no basis to do so?

What's logical to think he isn't? Or that he, and TP, represent the minority? But no, you can't look at it that because it doesn't fit your narrative.

Also, did you read what he said? He sounded like a jilted lover. Also, has Herbie been arrested? Because Jermele Hines has been.

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Way to go ZB, you may be more of a Buckeye than some of us now.


Per usual, we have a fraction of the fanbase that allows their blind hatred of a person(or entity) cloud logical thought.

Comment 14 Jan 2020

So him playing makes him more of a Buckeye than me, but him sucking means nothing.  Ok.  How many of us would give the same blood, sweat and tears to the team given the opportunity?  I'd guess a lot.

Except, we DIDN'T....he DID. Big difference. You know who else is more of a Buckeye than you or me....Joe Bauserman.

Jermale Hines is disgruntled?  In what way?  Why should we assume he's lying about how the locker room full of players who gave their blood, sweat and tears for the team felt about Herbstreit?  I assume the locker room wasn't mostly disgruntled, but thats JMO.

You're taking his word as if it's 100% true, why should we assume he's telling the truth? This is quite common...anything he does we perceive as bad = 100% proof of Fake Buckeye status. Anything he does/says that is positive = Herbie haters making excuses and saying how it means nothing and he's still a Fake Buckeye.

Comment 14 Jan 2020

How many shitty seasons have any of us lead OSU to?  Less than Herbstreit, so in that way.

Are you joking now? Come on man...I'm not telling you that you have to like him, but you're reaching now. Who cares what his stats were? He still gave his blood, sweat, and tears for the team...something you and I never did.

He's not the only player who's called him out.

So, focusing on the few(mostly disgruntled ex-players) is now the gospel? There's a term for this...

Comment 14 Jan 2020

he's also done way more damage to the program than any of us too.  

In what way? Just because he's not an unabashed homer and sometimes says things that hurt our feelings(usually truths we don't like hearing) doesn't mean he's been harmful to the program.

Was it a defense mechanism when other people who actually played the game and put their body on the line for the team we just ROOT for called him a Fake Buckeye?

We're going to take TP's word as gospel?

Comment 14 Jan 2020

He actually played the game...put his body on the line for a team we just ROOT for from the safety of our homes. If you don't like him that's fine, but calling him a fake buckeye is utterly absurd and nothing more than a defense mechanism.

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Who gives a morning #2 about his stats. He's done more for the school than you or I ever will...too many butthurt fans hating on the guy as as coping mechanism.

**Last sentence not directed at you. Also, he's not immune to criticism either. But calling him a fake buckeye is beyond lame...even for the lunatic fringe.

Comment 11 Jan 2020

Once again, we had THREE more penalties. You’re bringing OK into the discussion because it allows you to say “double the penalties”. The fact in that game was that OK was sloppy and unprepared...which leads to more penalties. In our game, we had one penalty we should truly be pissed about...the scoop and score. The targeting call...hate the rule not the call. If that happened to us, you know damn well every person on here would be yelling for a flag and review. You’re lying to yourself if you think otherwise. 

There was no bias involved, that’s something people use to help them make excuses for an outcome you don’t was bad officiating on a few calls in our game that unfortunately had a profound effect on the outcome. And the whole “no representation from our officials”? The “other” leagues have called just as many CFP games as the SEC/ACC...those crews won’t be calling the title game. You can call me a butt sniffer all you like(insults are par for the course from the conspiracy club) but that nothing but more bs deflection in a lame attempt to discredit what I’m saying. I could flip the script on you and say only whiny, tub fool hat wearers think ESPN has some conspiracy against OSU.

And I do know a guy who used to be a college official, but rather than addressing the point I was making you resorted to another insult by calling me a troll. 

You know, the whole conspiracy talk would sound less like a conspiracy if EVERY. SINGLE. THING. wasn’t bias against OSU. Only a non ESPN hates us “butt sniffer” can see that people LOOK for things to pin on ESPN to help them make sense of things they don’t like hearing. 

Comment 11 Jan 2020

Another day, another club member using the “posting history” deflection. As if that excuses the constant whining from the club members just because they comment on “other things”. Your buddies have commented about the ESPN/SEC/ACC/officials be out to get us conspiracy FAR more than I have “defended” ESPN. 

Comment 10 Jan 2020

I do know a guy...I couldn’t care less whether the Conspiracy Club believes me(they won’t no matter what). And we had three more penalties than Clemson, that’s not anything to scream about. Its convenient we bring OK into this so as to make it so we can say “double the penalties”. Isn’t it possible they just played a sloppy game? 

Comment 10 Jan 2020

Targeting rule in my opinion should also be gotten rid of.

The rule is fine, but the current iteration needs changed. You shouldn't be able to call a penalty that wasn't called on the field, let alone throw someone out as a result. The actual call in our game, I get it. I don't like it, and don't think it would have been called had Lawrence not been hurt, but if Fields was hit like that we'd all be calling for a flag too.

My "fix" for the indisputable evidence issue is having TWO officials review the play independently...they must agree or the call isn't overturned.

Comment 10 Jan 2020

Hey, someone from the Conspiracy Club using the "Cincy Loves ESPN" deflection. Here, I can play that game too. You sure do CRY a lot. Like, a lot of crying, about how the boogeyman is out to get OSU.

Also, it's weird to think that officials of a conference have zero interest in their employer. But I'm sure you'll make an argument that employees don't care if their boss makes money or not.

I know a guy who was an ACC(or it may have been B12) official back in the late 90's/early 2000's. He lived in Cbus and was a diehard OSU fan. You're acting like people are going to just throw away their personal allegiances(while NEVER admitting it) for a part time job(albeit well paid part time job). You're, like most people who fall victim to confirmation bias, digging way too deep to connect imaginary dots.

I can imagine that if ESPN said "yes, we rigged everything!", you'd come out saying "They didn't mean it, it was a joke".

Also, EXCELLENT use of the strawman here. Good job fella!

Comment 10 Jan 2020

ACC/SEC officials don't have a vested interest in anything. They are contracted, part time employees that have nothing to do with any TV contracts(which in itself is a weak argument if you really understand how the networks make money). In many cases, these officials aren't even fans of the schools they referee...the live/work in other parts of the country(and root for other teams) and fly in for the weekend for their respective games.

Comment 08 Jan 2020

But man, when a 6'6" guy bends down to his knees and is hit by a 5'10 guy in the helmet and gets ejected for "malicious intent",

The rule, the RULE, and the subjectivity that goes with it is complete BS. But the call, was correct. If the roles were reversed and it happened to Fields we'd be yelling for a flag too. The thing that sticks with me is that likely doesn't get called in Lawrence doesn't get "hurt" on that gave the officials time/a reason to look at the play further.

heir punter delivers a flying knee to the head of our player and OUR player gets the roughing call, our best defensive player gets held at every turn and no penalty is called,

Come on now...when you start down this path we lose credibility on the REAL arguments, ie the scoop and score. The roughing the punter call was legit. I'm more mad at the coaches for going after the punt than the flag being called. Again, if this happened to Chrisman we'd all be yelling at the screen for the flag.
