Logged in just to remind you that you don’t always have to play the “black keys” in your comments.  There are plenty of white ones as well.

Your commenting history against Nick Bosa sounds more like a silly little jilted girlfriend who stomps off pouting and telling all her friends how horrible her ex is.  Grow up and join the rest of us who have moved on to wishing Bosa a great NFL career.  

Find another boyfriend and be happy again.

My prayers and thoughts are with you Shannon.  We don’t always readily understand the “why” of these things, but If you seek God in this, He will answer in a way only you may understand.  My little brother, a physician himself, is in the final stages of cancer, and has accepted that his assignment is over on this earth.  But yours may not be!  We are praying for recovery, because if YOU and God agree that you aren’t finished with what He wants you to accomplish, you WILL be prowling these forums again!  God bless you and your family!

^^^Here is the worst of the Ohio State fandom.  

It is you, Brazilian Buckeye.  I had to log in to respond to this.  I am actually embarrassed you call yourself a Buckeye.  I do not have a history of hammering people, but I stand here with a sledge hammer to try to bludgeon the stupidity out of you...if indeed you aren’t simply a troll trying to stick your face where it shouldn’t be (I have few other places that your face might find appropriate lodging, but it isn’t here).

I noticed a few other insensitive and stupid takes, but to slight the young man’s character like that, Sir...I really do want to use some military connections I have, track you down, and kick you square between the tiny nuts you might have.

You are an idiot.

“Young Bosa, God speed your healing...THANK YOU for the time we were blessed to see you play.  We will be watching with pride as you continue your journey!”

A grateful Buckeye Nation

I believe a “perfect storm” of situations has affected the overall performance of the team...from Bosa’s early injury to key players now dinged up to the fact that opponents are focusing on stopping the run by consistently loading the box to young guys in key defensive positions on a steep learning curve to unwillingness of coaches to dramatically change a scheme or personnel to teams playing their Super Bowl against the Buckeyes to a feeling of entitlement by some players (and fans) to little Jimmy Bob not screaming loud enough at his TV to Orion not being properly aligned with Jupiter’s moon.

Any other spot-on analysis needed?

Aw come on.  Typical Homey view?  

This team is gonna scratch and claw it’s way to the playoffs UNDEFEATED!

And THEN rumble through the playoffs to a national championship as they finally PEAK at the best time of the season!

Now THAT’S the proper Homey view!  Get with it man!

Wow!  That was quick!  Thank you good sir!  Weird that none of my searches found it!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Comment 02 Oct 2018

Yikes!  I am the OP of this topic, and just now came here to see comments.  I’ve been driving my RV from Maryland to Arkansas, where I am now sitting on the side of the road with a blowout, waiting for Good Sam to send a tire guy!

i hope karma didn’t get me!

Anyway, I did not mean to open that can of worms, and apologize if I gave our Mods another headache...sorry guys! (Well, Hove probably NEEDS a headache, because he is so incessantly upbeat!)

The intent was certainly NOT to curtail anyone’s right to speech, but more to appeal to, yes, that impossible task of asking the broader fan base to moderate ITSELF.  Wouldn’t that be impressive to outsiders who came here and discovered an entirely new trait for open blogs...CIVILITY?

I thought that maybe if we at least had this open discussion about the issue, that some, who may have been leaning towards abandoning all decorum in commenting, might reconsider when they realize that these kids (players) DO come here along with their parents and even recruits!  

Let me ask the rhetorical question...if YOU were a recruit thinking of signing with the Buckeyes, would YOU want to get a flavor of the fans?  And if you came here and read several posters who called you “a waste of recruiting time and effort”, would that affect you at all?  I seems to me that these kids are social media addicts, and typically put a LOT more stock in what (even a few) people say about them.  I know, I know...”get a thicker skin, kid!”

But the truth is that it DOES affect them, and if you read my post again, you will see that I understood that coaches and other adults need to just stiffen their lip at the “idiot takes”, but honestly, if I was a PARENT of a kid considering OSU, and I read a bunch of crap about my son, I might say, “hey, son, we can do better than this.” (Of course, depending on the severity and depth of comment).

But please, to answer you, Cruiser...I am a war veteran as well, and I would NOT want the freedoms I’ve defended to fall into disrepair.  I look past those obnoxious posters with ease, and usually a chuckle, but you could look back through my commenting history for the past seven years, and won’t be able to find any such tirades (although I have my own private tirade in my own private living room). 

I was just hopeful that maybe, just maybe, my fellow Buckeye fans were collectively more mature than some of the caustic fan bases that HAVE A REASON TO BE CAUSTIC! (Cough cough-north of us-cough cough).

Anyway, Thank you Mods, for the great effort and WORK that goes into the best Buckeye site on the planet! (believe me, even other planets are envious of 11W!)

While this saga developed, I came here daily for my news about the whole sad affair, but I NEVER commented, because I didn’t feel qualified to add anything other than my opinion on someone else’s opinion.  

This interview now sheds some valuable light on the fact that the Board felt the same way a vast majority of 11W commenters felt.  Urban had suffered enough. Put him back to work and let the cry babies cry.

Drake certainly took it upon himself to appease the Urban haters at the resistance of the BoT.  First, I’m proud of those members for not buckling, even though it was increasingly apparent Drake would do what he wanted, disregarding the half mill spent on an investigation that clearly convinced a majority of them that NO additional punishment was warranted.

Urban’s immediate reinstatement would have pissed off the Finebaums and McMurphys of the world, but they were gonna be pissed with ANYTHING less than dismissal and public flogging.

Drake was irresponsible in his insistence on appeasement, and rightfully should be scrutinized for his Lone Ranger approach that only brought the credibility and perception of the OSU institution into disrepair. 

It really IS time to find a better match for presidency of OSU, someone who isn’t so sensitive to the fake outrage that is so popular these days.

I happen to know E. Gordon Gee personally (not intimately, like family, but casually a few times over the years), and even though he acknowledges he puts his foot in his mouth a lot, I would be more than happy backing up a Brinks truck to his home and bringing him back.  Drake is more suited for an Ivy League school or maybe a Massachusetts or UCLA.

But not Ohio State.
