Not to mention the idea that Urban reporting the incidents somehow absolves him of blame, if he did know the full extent of the issue. It's exactly what we rightly criticized regarding Paterno's response.
Some of those signs were a disgrace. This has been such an embarrassment to Ohio State.
This is not the only current ongoing scandal involving athletics at Ohio State. Like it or not, agree with it or not, Ohio State has received a huge amount of negative publicity over the last few months and to think the university's perception hasn't been damaged is naive.
Classes begin 8/21, I don't like that all of the students will be back when potentially bad news is coming. The football program is so unimportant to me in all this; whatever happens, please keep the already damaged reputation of my alma mater intact.
No, our fans haven't rioted in support of those who are accused of knowing. Those who are responsible should be held responsible, but there are big differences here.
I've got a couple that I recycle every year:
1) Like all of us I of course hate the Michigan Wolverines football team, but my contempt for Penn State University goes so far beyond football. I'll root for Michigan over Penn State any day.
2) People have been paralyzed on kickoffs. Screaming "rip his fucking head off" is incredibly trashy, classless, and embarrassing.
And a new one:
3) Maybe it makes me spoiled, but I am so damn sick of Ohio State playing down to its opponents and losing games it has no business losing. I'm sick of 11-2 when those two losses are the result of utter domination, lack of preparation, and being outcoached.
That is an incredibly unhealthy looking man.
Even then I don't think it's a big deal. 3 star recruits excel and 5 star recruits fizzle or transfer after a year. I think the correlation between recruiting and on-field success does not match the attention and excitement it gets.
What is Balmur?
It truly makes me sad to see Penn State experience success. They don't deserve it. Their fans - not all of them, but enough of them - deserve nothing but disappointment.
That's good for Purdue because Haarms does not have the mentality to take over the way Haas does. I don't think I've seen Haarms keep his composure in a single game this season.
That is a damn shame. I feel bad for Purdue, they get shafted by stuff like this a lot.
I think many sports, but particularly college basketball, really suffer because of a lack of accountability on officials. I understand the need for safeguards to prevent criticism but it seems like there is absolutely nothing in place meant to improve officiating and no recourse when officials don't do their jobs well enough.
I look forward to hearing our matchup in 9 hours.
This broadcast is an abomination.
Maybe a little embarrassing, but I'd be infinitely more embarrassed to tell people I went to Penn State.
Come on Buckeyes, beat these chumps.
It would have been great to come out on top but I just can't be disappointed with this. Great season, I'd love to cap it off with a couple of postseason wins.
I take great solace in the fact that I have nothing to do with Penn State.
You should carry that stub with you in case you ever run into Len. The attendance at that game was 7,290, and he says he's had about 30,000 people come up and breathlessly claim to have been there.
