Crazy that we had such a huge offensive rebound edge. 3 point shooting and turnovers killed us, plus Iowa just was way better at overall shooting tonight. One step forward, two steps back. I fully expect us to beat Maryland and then lose the next game by 12. :)

I say yes, considering how inexperienced a lot of our guys are. Wint and Riep weren't starters but did have more game experience than most of our returning players. That underscores the importance of this decision by Ryan Day, as he wasn't dismissing a walk-on long snapper that never saw the field just to satisfy the angry masses. This would have been the same decision regardless of WHO it was and I'm glad Day handled it this way.

I get the whole "innocent until proven guilty", but this was the correct move. Even if, by some chance, the allegations aren't entirely accurate, it's fairly clear that these two players were, at the very least, not representing the team and university in the way that's expected. Kudos to Coach Day for properly handling what was clearly a horrific situation.

God I really want to care. I really do. But it still hurts so goddamn much and ARGH.

I love Ohio State football, more than most things in life. I've been a diehard fan since I watched my first Buckeye game in 1994 (vs. Purdue) and have gone to countless games and spent countless dollars on tickets, shirts, memorabilia, travel, etc. Despite all of this, I am very slowly coming to the realization that the game I love is being ruined. Whether it's the media's incessant fellating of southern football or incompetent and/or corrupt officials single-handedly ruining games and costing teams championship opportunities, this game is a lot different than the one I grew up watching. Something at the core of college football is very wrong and it's only getting worse.
