For those of you that are curious: the prosecutor from the 2010 case was William Davies and the judge was Richard Frye. It appears there was a plea deal of sorts. However, based on the charges from that incident, I cannot comprehend why such a light sentence was given and agreed to.

One could argue they did gain an advantage by keeping this quiet. Had Sandusky's actions been uncovered sooner it could have had a negative impact on recruiting and potentially on-field results.

Yea, you can't just undo history, but I think it's bs that the winningest D1 coach did the absolute minimum he needed to do to cover his ass when it came to the abuse of children.

Agree with the vast majority of this. However, IMHO the OSU admin is bloated (can't remember the article, but our admin is huge). I don't think they actually deal with underlying causes. I think they find the first, most useful scapegoat they can and throw him/her to the wolves in order to avoid a PR catastrophe, while giving the appearance of being effective.

Was meant in response to a different comment.

In regards to research revenue, depending on the funding source and the department a significant portion actually goes straight to OSU admin

The other thing I'm picking up over there about Brandon is that they will not be able to replace Hoke (making the relatively safe assumption that he's done) with a decent coach if Brandon is still the AD.  This makes a good bit of sense particularly after last nights statement that effectively threw Hoke under the bus.

It isn't even schadenfreude for me anymore. It's genuine pity and I grew up during the Cooper era, so that's saying something. I really miss hating them.

Comment 24 Sep 2014

I absolutely love this poster particularly since I literally live a corn field away from this sign. Gives it a whole new meaning.

Comment 23 Sep 2014

Ouch!  I hope I never hear anything that remotely resembles any of what Taylor said coming from former OSU players.     

Comment 09 Sep 2014

Actually, this is what helped me get over it. We certainly do not have it as bad as the other teams that made it (as things stand currently). And if you can't laugh at yourself, or at times your team... well for me it just makes it easier

Last I heard and this was sometime ago, when Gee came back, he more or less asked CPD to get vice off campus (that was a Holbrooke initiative). So basically, in a red solo cup and you're fine as uniformed officers don't really don't worry about such trivia.

As I understand it (perhaps I'm wrong but I thought cutblocking was only allowed at certain distances from the snap) and live from my point of view it seemed as though some chop blocks by Navy, particularly when they pitched to the outside weren't called.

I wouldn't say they're world beaters but that's one game I probably won't forget for the next 48 years. 

Comment 21 Aug 2014

In all honesty I can't answer that question. I watch espn for highlights, not OSU news. Personally, I am of the belief they cater to their primary audience, which in regard to CFB, is the SE, and from a financial standpoint makes sense. Also, IMHO, OSU gets way more air time from them than any other B1G team, whether it's negative or positive means something.
