Apparently, according to ESPN and this "reporter" Meyer had other duties aside from head football coach:

Postmaster General - inspect all packages to and from OSU football staff without their permission.

Marriage counselor: Sit down with each coach and his wife/significant other and solve their problems, include your wife in the discussions.

Law enforcement officer: Interpret the law and determine punishment for each staff member, regardless of whether a crime has been committed. This includes all accusations, rumors, possible arrests, regardless of whether law enforcement has found anyone guilty or not. 

Psychiatrist: Determine each employee's state of mind before any trips, determine if they will send "dick picks" from the White House, put a stop to any nefarious activity.

Psychic: Much like Christopher Walken in the Dead Zone, shake the hand of all employees and determine their sins pre hiring and while on staff, weed out all evil doers if necessary.

I will soon be 52 years old and will always love my Skins.  That being said, a bad owner always turns a good or great franchise into a bad one.  Snyder has been a buffoon for quite a while now.  From his asinine FA signings (Deion, Haynesworthless, to name a few) to the shitshow line of coaches he has somehow suckered into coming to town, he has proven himself an embarrassment to the league and this once proud franchise.  I will always love the Skins, and could care less if they change their name.  They no longer resemble an NFL franchise and are rapidly catching up to Cleveland for Dumpster Fire of the Year award. Actually, Cleveland seems to now have an actual plan in place, I see none on the Skins horizon.  Sad.

No offense Ramzy, you don't know me. I am not upset, I just don't think this is the forum for this kind of crap. I in fact did read the entire "article", and think it would be fine somewhere else.  I could give 2 shits about Streep's opinion, I come here to get away from this shit.  You are a good writer, stick to football. Also I am 51 years old and a full grown adult and have never made any political comments on here, nor will I.  Were I upset as you call it, I'd probably have written in all caps or used explanation points, but I'm not. I just don't want to see this type of crap on here. You as an employee of this site should know that, and should probably leave smart ass comments out of it, such as "people like you". Were I not an adult I would probably write a note to the person in charge and question your comments towards me, but I haven't and I won't.  Again, you don't know me, don't act like you do.

Why TF is this on here?  It has nothing to do with OSU football, is obviously stupid politics/entertainment and has no place here.  Funny no one is allowed to comment on politics but you write an entire article and allow the thread to take sides. Who gives a shit, it is one opinion in millions. Get it off here.

No, an emphatic no. Look at his career stats, go through it year by year.  He was a juicer.  He had 3 seasons out of 21 where he won 20 games, all in a 5 year period.  Before and after he was pretty much average, if not below average.  In the league 21 years and you have 210 wins, aka 10 wins a year, and 60+ of those victories you got in 3.  No one questions him cause his name never came up, but his stat lines are suspicious at best.  

Comment 17 Jan 2017

I believe Hooker himself said he was not ready and immature last year, so that is the reason he didn't see the field, not some bad judgement by the coaches or staff.  I am sure Okudah will be a little more bulked up and will be in the rotation at a minimum.  Hell I saw Deion Sanders in his prime and he couldn't tackle a 3rd grader but I'd put him out there before 99% of any other guys. A great tackler is awesome but if you are fast enough to hold em up and at least wait for someone else to apply the blast, that works too. 

Comment 14 Jan 2017

Becoming crowded, time to get some true freshman in here, some big receivers, scholarship/space crunch coming soon if this keeps occurring. Of course somehow they always find a way to get under or at the limit.

Comment 12 Jan 2017

Pretty sure, in fact positive, Auburn had it at Wal-Mart, Bama too, as I lived in Georgia and people would send me photos of the yokels posing with it in front of redneck champagne display, aka Mountain Dew. Not uncommon, pretty common southern thing.  

Comment 29 Oct 2016

I miss the September Buckeyes, who are these November Suckeyes?  Yes there were a couple cupcakes, but there seemed to be less being gashed.  The penalties I can live with, they are a young team.  How about more than one pass in the middle of the field, how about junking the option like the rest of the country did about 10 years ago? How about some continuity.  There is abundant talent but for whatever reason, youth, coaching, penalties, it ain't clicking.  Hopefully they figure it out quick. And how does a 5' 10" Northwestern walk-on receiver burn EVERY SINGLE dude they put on him. I know, great route runner, but still.  Why does every mediocre QB look like Montana at critical points against them lately? 

Comment 29 Jun 2016

Wouldn't shock me he is 18 and looking at everything, hopefully the Bucks hang onto him, if not there are others in the wings. Realized after Sibley left that tOSU is now a national brand (kid was 8th in the state and they basically told him he wouldn't be playing).  Alabama is about the only other one, where you can choose who you want, and Meyer is THE reason.  It is what it is. I am 51 years old and have seen coaches salaries go from a high of about 150K back in the early 80s to 5 to 10 million a year shortly. I love OSU football and always will but knowing kids like Danny Clark, who basically bleed Buckeye red, might not even see the field is a bit disheartening. It is truly a big, cutthroat business now. I fault none of these kids for looking around, especially because they are just that, kids.  They commit a lot of the time based on the coaches, who are always looking to move.  As I said, if he moves on, Akers will probably take his spot.

It begins, and ends, as it always should with Nolan Ryan.  SEVEN, SEVEN no hitters.  In 1987, at age 40, FORTY, he went 8-16 with a 2.70 ERA and 270 strikeouts in 211 innings (the first of 4 years in a row he led the league in K's, at age 40!, never mind the 350+ K seasons 10 years previous). If you look at his career stats, had he played for a decent team a majority of the time, he would have probably had close to 400 wins.  Bob Gibson was awesome and Johnson sure, hell even JR Richard in his prime.  But for overall dominance, F Clemens and his roids, The Ryan Express, hands down.
