I haven't logged in to post in nearly a year. Jocelyn's letter compelled me to do so. I cried at "strong independent women". Has this letter been published or presented by any news media? It should be. Not only in response to Mr. Waters firing but as a strong message to our country that our young people are strong, independent, intelligent and resilient persons who are able to make decisions for themselves and remain accountable for them.

Devil's advocate: Nearly 20 years at PSU and they didn't give him the HC job? And he hasn't been pulled away previously? Is he past his prime?

 Also: would love to see a young guy, fairly recently retired from NFL...in the image of Vrabel, that the kids can relate to. Is there anyone out there?

Seems like Braxton and the entire offense does better in hurry up. It was what looked so crisp early in the year. Then Herman got his head up someone's arse and bogged us down. I'd be satisfied if Herman and Urban open things up and let em play regardless of outcome.

You can add J. Winston to the list of questionable behavior/activity without accountability and yet praised and lauded by the same media that chooses to denigrate Ohio State simply because it makes lots of money for ESPN and all of the parasites of college football.

How they sleep at night is beyond me.

Enjoyed his mother's insight into her son's well rounded character: Academics, athlete and comfortable in his own skin. I also appreciate the support of his parnts in giving him the freedom to make the best choice for him! I think this gives the young man the best opportunity for success at tOSU!

Keep in mind that Hooley lost his job in Cbus over Tatgate. Imagine he's bitter as he was a "friendly fire" casualty.

Like SB97, I too am skeptical on multiple fronts. I grew up on the South side of Ytown in the 60's & 70's and am usually saddened and frustrated with media/hollywood's portrayal of Ytown and some of it's more famous people as stereotypes of whatever will garner the highest ratings.

Are there stereotypical mobsters/steelworkers/drug dealers/Italians/etc in Ytown? you bet. Do they define an individual who lives there or grew up there? not entirely.

Hopefully the Zimbalists can provide the broader spectrum of those of us Ytowners who are neither entirely whitebread suburbanites nor cheesy Italian mobsters/drug dealing gang members/drunken violent steel workers. We are, however, people who can appreciate the fine line between those obvious "bad characters" and those that are so well received, tolerated and often lauded in society today (politicians, media, execs, bankers..).

So, in Finebaum's world it's OK for FSU to allow an accused rapist to play all season, but OSU should suspend Hall for popping the finger?

We really have reached "rationalized reality".

I simply hope they avoid the stereotypes of Ytown. I grew up there and while it was an interesting experience, it was also the best.

There was and is a great deal more diversity in Ytown than is usually portrayed when the media or Hollywood gets involved.

The story I'd like to see is the era of Mancini-Stoops-Pelini. Great sports, great stories....maybe I'll write that one!

Advice from the other side: "I have to study" = I'm a pretty smart girl and it will take a bit more work to capture my interest.

Phone number = You're cute..so with a little more effort.....
