Yeah.  I'd trust the recollection of the story from the poster over trusting that NPR got the story right.  Let me guess.  You get your news from the fair and balanced network?

While OSU's "scandal" has been handled infinitely better than the previously mentioned schools, we do have a certain luxury that made dealing with this issue much easier.  The simple fact that this happened many administrations ago and that no one currently affiliated with the university was part of the events that unfolded over this doctor's tenure.  OSU really isn't any different than any other organization who's had these types of event unfold.  The reaction is to always try to sweep it under the rug.  Ignore the problem as though it never happened.  In much the same way I guess 11Warriors is just trying to do the same thing.  It really doesn't help the collective psyche of the "community" when you try to ignore the problem.  Talking through this is always the best way to come to terms with it.  I just wonder if this is a Jim Jordan thing.

Recipe for disaster.  You think the transferring of QBs is bad now?  Just wait until you get your wish.  Even with free agency in the pros there are a lot of limitations.

I prefer position coaches who've actually played the position.  I don't get how someone played a DB somehow becomes an offensive coordinator.  I mean obviously it is not out of the realm of possibilities.  Someone could easily argue that only a defensive player would really know how to attack a defense.  But a position coach should know and have applied the actual technique involved with the position.  Hartline is a godsend.  So would LaCharles Bentley.  If Day was smart, he'd back the Brinks truck up at Bentley's facility and drive him all the way back to Columbus.  I just prefer players with extensive college or professional experience coaching the position that they played.

I'm not sure you're ready for the reality that is beer trading.  If you find $12.00 bottles expensive, then you're going to find it tough sledding.

Besides, there are so many great beers no matter where you live.  There is no reason to trade when a same style beer of near the same quality is right down the street from you.  Traders are usually people who engage in constant dick-sizing contests.

Haskins just entered the conversation too late.  A lot of those votes are already in by the Michigan game and that was his "Heisman" moment.  We all know how this works.  I'm really surprised that people are bitching about this.  I suspect that some just want to use this as another proof positive that the world is out to get OSU.  I just don't think that this is a case for outrage.

Who cares about the playoffs.  This team was going to get destroyed in the playoffs.  Let's just limp across the BigTen finish line now.

Of course there was.  There was opposition to the United States entered World War I and II.  There were a lot of Nazi sympathizers throughout the country.  Your point is sort of meaningless.

In all fairness to Booker though, he was trying to tackle Spielman out in the open.  That's no small task.  Spielman made him and maybe the safety look silly twice early in the game.

Comment 04 Nov 2018

One game does not make a player but I sure hope he plays like that the rest of the season and they make him a starter.  Of course, that's just one position that desperately needs a replacement.  

At least two linebacker positions.  A corner but preferably I'd like to see two replaced.  I'll stop there and see what the results are before I go further.

Redshirt season. 

Seriously, puts his two hours per day of stretching into perspective.  I was doing something similar in relation to my martial arts training.  I was going to be a headhunter with my legs.  I stretched like no one's business and then it happened.  Pop.  Martial Arts was out of the question and I was basically a one-legged soccer player from there on out.  I'm sure he's under the tutelage of an excellent trainer but I've always wondered.

You mean their very own propaganda department?   Ohio St. has this already figured out.  I guess you haven't seen their extensive social media postings, their weekly game trailers, etc.  Now a crises management team.  That you could convince me on.

Minor critique:  the longest plays were not in consecutive weeks.  Facts matter.
