Ha! I couldn't care less about the Buckeyes as I support another team. However, I thought the post was humorous and didn't say anything the people with eyes couldn't see themselves. I went to a football factory (thank God), and I saw this regularly. It happens everywhere. However, when you get caught, you gotta pay. Looks like OSU's time is coming. Next year, it will be somebody else. Such is life at the football factories (and b-ball factories, to a lesser extent).

Get a sense of humor, people. Life's much more enjoyable that way.

dude,

seriously! the fact that you mom grew up in indiana should have been your first clue!! folks who speak of the insanity of high school football in texas have never been to a high school basketball game in the state of indiana. props to your mom on her game and you should catch a womans game or two. those gals play with more pain and less complaining that their male counterparts. good post tho as you now appreciate her game. nice tribute to her, and her basketball past. keep it up good sir!

"In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king"

If you live in Ohio none of this should come as a surprise. I have read this blog and been entertained for quite some time. From what I read, MT stated what he saw. He did not express inside information, but just stated the obvious and let others reply. Cut the kid some slack for at least putting it in print. Here are some thoughts:

a) After years of pointing out cheating at other schools, it has come home to roost. Instead of using this as a time to clean house, and show why Ohio State is better than the "cheating" schools, they have chosen to go on the defensive. Like the ostrich with their head in the sand, I feel this tactic will not be good long term for Ohio State or the NCAA as it will leave the mark that some schools / programs are above the law.

b) Many of the in-laws are Ohio State grads so I might show some bias, but I will not blindly defend Ohio State in this matter. Since these folks are older they have a different standard for their alma mater than the current generation of alumni and the non alumni that have no academic connection with Ohio State. Not cheating has been the cornerstone of Ohio State and the B1G, so before anybody throws stones at Titus, Herbie, or any other alum make sure you have not become what you ridicule in schools like USC or Auburn. If you circle the wagons now, the Ohio State I knew long ago will be gone for the rest of my lifetime. If the school and the fanbase make every effort to find the real answers and punish any who skirted the rules, then Ohio State will continue as the school I knew and have fond memories of.

c) I watched the JT presser when this first came out. I am sad that as the leader he seemed to have no remorse, and seems intent to feel the rules do not apply to him. This man is only a football coach, but by his position he is the representation of Ohio State that the rest of the country sees. Famous people crash and burn all the time but this is american and we root for those who come clean and then make the comeback. I hate to say it but in his comments I saw a new Pete Rose, yes I am old enough to remember the Big Red Machine, and we all know how Pete's denial has affected his legacy. If the younger fanbase wants such a legacy then so be it. Just remember you have made the bed that future Ohio State fans will have to sleep in.

In closing you can not get half pregnant. If JD and JT are obsessed with the money that they will jump in bed with the devil are the ALUMNI willing to accept the hell spawn it will produce? I would hope they would not, but I was raised in a different generation, with a different set of standards. If EGG and the folks in charge in Columbus seem at ease in following a modern Pete Rose, then I for one will disconnect from the university and not look back. Ohio State was not like the rest, at least I told myself this, so if they choose now to follow the crowd what is the point?

Shark, really, with all the important things going on in the world, you are taking time to elaborate this horse poo? I come to this blog for hard hitting editorials on the events that define our times and set the course for mankind’s future. Never mind that this week we saw the finale of ‘The Biggest Loser’ and ‘Dancing w/ The Stars’; but dear God man, it’s OPRAH’S LAST SHOW!!! C’mon dude, give us your take…

People are so lame (didn't you say from the beginning not to make anything of this post?). Good work, Titus. All you need is a few facts and you're on your way to becoming an actual journalist!

NCAA are a bunch of idiots so it in fact WOULD surprise me if they found anything. You must figure they really aren't going to look THAT hard. That kind of stuff costs money.

2011-05-25T02:25:49.720-04:00

To DickinaBox:
You're fucking retarded. It's obvious to me that you have zero connection to Columbus or the university to honestly have that opinion. Ever since this blog became public nothing but good things have been said around campus. I'm a student at tOSU (which by the way does not make me think I'm entitled to anything, although I'm damn proud of it) and frankly most people have no idea what this blog is. Whenever I wear my Club Tril shirt people ask what it is, and those that know give me fucking props. The only people on the planet that somehow don't like it are old, senile bastards (and you apparently) who have zero sense of humor and somehow think this blog is an embarrassment to tOSU, so get your head out of your ass and realize that.

To the jerkoff who said "it was a nice break from the poop jokes":
Do you think this is written for your own entertainment or something? Get off your high horse. If you don't like reading about FIFA, getting drunk, and other random bullshit then don't fucking read the blog. It's not tailored to any one person's interests. The fact that your insignificant ass reads this blog is of no importance to anybody so shut the fuck up.

And for the record I do see a football player roll up in new Dodge Charger with tinted windows and rims outside of Hagerty Hall after I eat lunch every Tuesday and Thursday.

America, Cleveland, Buckeyes (in that order).

2011-05-25T01:01:00.042-04:00

However way you want to characterize or spin the mess in Columbus, it's not going to change the fact that their recent success under Tressel was the result of CHEATING, including that tainted championship in 2002.
Your team is a bunch of CHEATERS. Remember that when you're looking for somebody to blame, be it the media, Tressel, opposing team's fans, Pam's cluelessness, the tides, Herbstreit, Clarett, or the boogeyman.
Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools that don't have brains enough to be honest.

2011-05-25T00:03:49.338-04:00

Always loved your stuff, Mark. You could be the next Bill Simmons. A bunch of us Michigan State alums are jealous we didn't dream up the Club Trillion schtick before tOSU.

Can't believe the haters - they might be Walmart Wolverines trolling in disguise, because your blog brings more credit to your school and its grads than the usual run of OSU hangers-on, so Sarah the Sleaze Groupie and Lee "nutjob" Kuhlman are simply ass-licking clowns. We have a few like those at MSU, and they make us just as embarrassed.

Enjoy your brickyard boobs without a shred of guilt and keep talking the talk.

2011-05-24T22:48:26.242-04:00

Why are people freaking out about this!? It is silly. It is just an opinion and observation. If you think your school should be allowed to skirt the rules then you want your team to cheat end of discussion. Just deal with it. More importantly you are attacking a man with ENLARGED TESTICLES! He has serious testicular elephantitis!

2011-05-24T22:44:10.248-04:00

Gotta say, your first post was inoffensive and perfectly valid, and this one hopefully pointed it out to all the douches who jumped on your straight away. Acknowledging that it looked like there was something janky going on is just factual; you're not supposed to bury your damn head in the sand. If there was something going on like that at my school and I had such a blog, with viewers who wanted to know, I'd address it just as you did.
I mean the utmost respect towards Buckeyes and their fans, but it does seem like they tend to get a bit out of shape at times, what with this and them bashing Kirk Herbstreit for apparently not being enough of a homer when calling games on ESPN.
And I'm glad that my school has neither of those problems; this probably has more to do with our school having neither a crazy amount of cash to give athletes/drivable streets, nor a famous alum calling games.
Proud to be a Californian but even prouder to be a Golden Bear!

2011-05-24T22:22:50.837-04:00

Pam, perhaps because your point is irrelevant. Maybe OSU's problems are the fault of the lamestream media, right Palin? Care to refudiate? Nice retort, or maybe we misunderestimated you. Any more gems?
Have fun playing the Toilet Bowl from now on.
Can I get you a gift subscription to Sports Illustrated? A free box of tissues comes with every paid subscription. I wouldn't want you to miss the big story.

Boy, people really become idiot assholes when their team gets caught doing shit they shouldn't do!!! Nothing against OSU, I'm from Indiana, (Mark, you might want to come back) but you have to own up to your wrong doings. Sounds like there is going to be some hard owning up going on.

2011-05-24T21:27:51.076-04:00

Pam, what's your point? News is news, and news sells but bad news sells better. OSU wouldn't be on any magazine covers during the off-season if they didn't do anything wrong. Your attempts at deflection by bringing up other programs are transparent. Break the rules, and eventually even the the hand-sitters at the NCAA compliance office will come knocking.
And PUH-LEEZE, plenty of you numbNUTS have been denying any and everything regarding Tressel, Tat-gate, Car-gate, and soon to be released Apartment-gate and Travel-gate. Head in the sand is the official motto, just look at the comments from the previous post on Club Trillion. Deny deny deny and then deny some more, right?

OK, I don't either. But there goes your chance of ever being welcome back in Columbus you POS.

2011-05-24T21:10:39.670-04:00

Who is denying? Has anyone said that Jim Tressel DIDN'T do the things he is being accused of? Of course not. What has happened in the time since the story broke can only be likened to sharks in a frenzy over blood in the water. I get it. tOSU sells. Good or bad, they sell. Want people to buy your mag? Put a sweater vest on the cover. You think ESPN the Mag thought they would get as much attention if they put an orange jacket with "busted" instead of Vols on the cover? You want to fill a stadium with fans who will come to your city and spend money? Put them in a bowl game. You play the game to win and whether you are praising or trashing tOSU, you will win.

For all the deniers out there, get ready to shit your collective pants. Sports Illustrated has a huge story coming out 5/31 that's going to blow the lid off the shenanigans at OSU. There's even info going back to Tressel's days at YSU. The vest is yet to come. LOL

2011-05-24T20:22:38.436-04:00

Has anyone ever considered the fact that Herbstreit could have wanted to move because he had a hard time going out into public without running into a woman he had slept with, and that it just might be a little hard on his wife? Also, many of these "Ohio State football fans" aren't even graduates. No one has even considered that the only reason some people root for the Buckeyes because they're from Ohio and want to root for a winning program. These 5-10% are just the same as the jackass from Alabama who poisoned the tree's in Toomers Corner, just wannabee's giving everyone else a bad name. No one is excusing Ohio State's violations because "everyone does it," all we're saying is that everyone who is busy piling on the Buckeyes are ignoring the same stuff going on on their campus
