Just got back in the country and wasn’t a part of this decision (if it was a formal decision?) but my personal opinion on the matter is that if Jim Jordan was not involved or affiliated with Ohio State during Strauss’ tenure, this would be a non-issue. There are people who want to make this tragedy particularly about Jordan and his role in it, and in return there are people who will reflexively defend Jordan and also (rightfully) point out the injection of politics into an otherwise non-political story. That intersection makes it political, and we know from experience what happens here.

I made my own opinion on the Jordan/Strauss story known when I ran my story on it last year. This was systemic failure of cowardice and coverup and Jordan is a convenient target for obvious, familiar and emotional reasons - but if you’re going to pick one of the many to be pissed off at, the AD at the time who abruptly retired at the ripe old age of 47 is a much better choice.

I was being cheeky. There are a whole bunch of me-banging-the-JTBIV-drum-again articles over the years embedded in this article.

The regional manager who has obligations for the central Ohio franchises (a friend of the site!) is less than thrilled about the tweet. One-day story if they just ignore it, which they should.

Only documented twitter user who has never had a bad tweet is Tim Shoemaker. No one else is immune.

The flagship Eagle Rare that regularly reaches liquor store shelves is perfectly fine; the one that’s part of the annual BTAC that’s being released shortly is worth committing mild treason to get.

The therapy that erased every tragic detail from the 2011 season was money well spent.

Oof. Luke is easily the most polished and reliable pass-catching option on the unit, as well as its reigning leading receiver. This writer sucks.
