Maybe 11W should not have put salt in the wound by devoting an article with huge headlines screaming at you to the ill advised statement this kid made.
Sigh ... an example of why I don't comment or read comments as much as I used to.
Buckeye Nation ... one million arm chair coaches strong LOL.
Mafia heads love their family ... what is your point?
Could we get away with it by spelling Gray differently? Nah ... never mind ... that would be totally lame.
Robert Landers is an outstanding young man and very inspirational. So good that mental health issues (and I've struggled with mine over the years) are being discussed and it should not be a stigma, should be something we talk about in the open and treat like any other situation where the mind / body is not is functioning optimally. As far as the horrific events that occurred in Dayton, El Paso, Chicago and so many others before them, other countries have mental health issues (and play "violent" video games) just as we do in the states, but they don't have this constant stream of mass murder shootings. We all know the reason for that stark difference. Also, just because someone commits a heinous act like that does not necessarily mean they have a mental health issue (there are articles out there by experts who explain exactly what criteria must be exhibited for the diagnosis of having a mental health issue) they may just be full of hate, often victims of bullying, and very deliberately plan and carry out an attack. Someone with a severe mental health issue typically is not that high functioning based on what I've read. Just some food for thought, our first impulse is "anyone who does something that terrible must have a mental health issue" and that may not be accurate or getting to the root cause.
Lot's of good comments on this thread but this one is the "winner" IMHO.
Dan / 11W is doing their due diligence by reporting this, it's a story of national interest (for some reason). That "said" ... I personally don't care all that much. There are so many big problems we are facing in this ol' world ... Coach Meyer stepped down and is no longer a head coach, we all know he was loyal to a fault ... ZS is a disreputable individual ... end of story in my mind.
And in related news, Michigan is leading the September Heisman vote ...
Awesome! She has mad skillz for sure.
Maybe best not to put your arm around the young ladies coach, I personally have no problem with it but sadly a PC world we live in these days.
The Tressel WR's ... wow.
Football is a dangerous sport, kids should not be playing it and we should not be watching it. We try to sugarcoat the brutality of it by talking about the "band of brothers", "playing for the guy next to you", "life lessons", "working as a team" and "realizing your potential". We should all be ashamed of ourselves.
August the 31st ... can't wait!!!
If this was sarcasm it would deserve 1000 upvotes. IF IF IF
Nice job David, you did well right until the end of your article, where you fumbled the ball right before crossing the goal line! :P
Happy birthday Kevin ... you're younger than my two kids ... so if you're expecting sympathy ...
My heart dropped when the mouse-over on the article on the front page declared "Four-star offensive tackle Grant Toutant flips his commitment from Ohio State to Penn State."
Ya might want to fix that LOL.
Wide Receiver U!!!
The men's tennis team inexplicable loss in the NCAA team tournament was really disappointing, they were the #1 seed and the prohibitive favorite. JJ Wolf, the #2 seed in the individual competition, not making it at least to the NCAA semi's was also a head scratcher. Such is sports however.
It is serendipitous for OSU to have a veteran defense and stout running back in the same season as a first-year quarterback. I think that would be grammatically correct, not sure if you can use an adjective like you did. Maybe an English major can let us know ... if anyone really give a ***t LOL. But excellent point none-the-less!
Guy with anger management issues and a petty and sadistic wife using their children to torture the guy. She has been known in the past to have essentially "set him up" to try to get him in trouble. They are both trash.
How is this any longer 11W newsworthy?
Oh brother ...
We Came to Play School You
The twin towers ... that would be sweet!
I must be getting senile ... I do not know who this kid is.
