Bravefan on 11/9....

Discussion in 'ESPN's 04-05 war against tOSU and Tressel' started by DiHard, Nov 12, 2004.

    From BraveFan on BNuts......this dude got the first half of the story dead up from the get-go......he just couldnt bring together the back half of the story......or he is not telling it.....the backend of the story is the key and is close to being pieced together....patience....i think we are close......there are just so many things to the backend that...if true.... you dont want to discuss and now i absolutely see why bravefan went down the path he has......

    I came in here last night to give you a friendly heads-up regarding the story about to be reported by ESPN. I didn't have all the answers -- nor was I 100% sure that my information was completely accurate.

    Maybe I shouldn't have said anything, but I started the thread so that you weren't blindsided by this story. After I posted my "prepare for disturbing news" thread, I went to bed, and then had to get up early today for some meetings which had me away from my computer until now. I see that I was called a few bad names -- the most painful of which was "Michigan fan" -- because I didn't follow up my "warning" with any names, sources or otherwise substantive information. I realize I'm just an anonymous internet poster here -- but the reason I didn't say more was simply because I'd been given information that I thought could be very painful to two men I absolutely admire -- Jim Tressel and Andy Geiger -- even if the information were never journalistically or legally substantiated. I was reluctant to say anything at all -- but I felt that you, as Bucknuts, deserved to be informed of what was about to transpire.

    That being said, you should all know that ESPN still has more tricks up their sleeve, and this likely won't be going away anytime soon. Somebody at ESPN is trying to bring Jim Tressel and OSU football down -- and I'm afraid one of our own might be in on it. And no, I'm not going to expand on that.

    A poster on another thread said something along the lines of, "What else does ESPN have besides MoC, Sammy and Marco? Are they talking with car dealers? Are they talking with boosters? Are they talking with tutors?" The answer to all those questions is a resounding yes, and the story is being framed in such a way to indicate that Jim Tressel's hands are dirty. Very dirty.

    Unfortunately, I think Mr. Geiger is still going to be blindsided by a lot of the specifics. I'm afraid it's not going to be as easy as discrediting Maurice, Marco and Sammy -- although I would agree those aren't the most credible sources in the world (to put it mildly).

    I, like most of you, hope this story somehow blows over and doesn't trigger another NCAA investiation. But unless something happens to make ESPN back off -- I'm afraid this is going to get worse before it gets better.

    Oh for Fuck's sake.

    EsPeen has got as much as the NCAA has-- the time is coming for the NYT'S of sports to take a notch down for this shiite.

    Rumours. Whatever. How many discredidted sources does it take to descredit newfound sources??? :(

    Weather the storm Bucks........ :osu:

    Tom Friend said himself on 1460 that they tried to get the name of the boosters and they tried to get a paper trail from the car dealership and failed to do so. They have nothing else. They wrote their article, and had their time in the sun. Now their house of cards is crumbling around them as all of their claims are backfiring on them as fast as they put them out.
  4. Crumbling or not, us Bucks must stay after espee'nintheirgrits just like Ohioan Gen. Phil Sheridan cut a nasty swath through the Shenandoah Valley in 1864.

    I want to blister their collective ass.

    If that is the case... I could seriously see ESPN being sued again. They've been sued by coaches before, because of stupid ass tactics like this. Jumping the gun...

    This is just sad what they're trying to do to us....... Seriously everytime I get on the computer something new is on about us, and everytime I get on something new is printed.... If this wasn't a set up story on OSU why would it be coming out day by day? My reasoning is because they want people to build up to the big grand fanaly (I'm scared to think what that may be) and have everyone be left in suspence day in and day out.... ESPN is very capable of bringing us down, and if they do I swear I wont' watch them again.

    Uh I could be really wrong on this but I think it was Gen. Sherman that burned the Shenandoah Valley.

    This is what interests me. This guy obviously had some knowledge of this before hand, so it is logical that what he is implying has some fact to it. Who does he consider "one of our own"? A fan? A former player? A coach? OR a certain football hating president???? THAT WHORE HOLEBROOK. I am only really half joking. If he means someone at the university wants to take down Tressel and Geiger, I cant think on anyone that hates the football tradition like Holebrook.

    He is talking about Coach Cooper. Check the thread at BN.

    If it's Cooper, someone should fire bomb his house. Fuck sensitivity, that's how I feel. Fuck Cooper.

    Cooper eh? I wouldn't consider him one of our own. More like a bitch red headed step child that tried to fit in.

    Oh and I dont go to sucknuts, but thanks for letting me in the loop.

    After reading all the articles Espn has written, I keep coming back to the fact that that the NCAA investigated this whole ordeal for some 16/18 months and found nothing solid to implicate the coaches or staff, in reference to these allegations. The NCAA is very VERY efficient too.
    The only thing I have read to date is garbage produced by Espn, and some hack journalists who are rehashing old news and opening old wounds with the hopes that it will lead to more stories. In order for there to be direct penalties towards Ohio State and/or Coach Tressel, there has to be a paper trail and/or an admission from Coach Tressel or the boosters. To date there has not been a shread of evidence produced to prove any of these allegations are true. Also all there so called other sources seem to be less than credible or falling apart before the ink even dries from the last allegation. Poorest journalistic writting I have seen in ages.

    If they have facts .... PROVE IT or GO AWAY!!! I am positive that the whole Buckeye Community would want to have swift justice for anyone who has violated Ohio States honor and the NCCA rules. Ohio States' honor and reputation are far more important than any one individual. The funny thing is it's apparent that Espn doesn't hold those same values because that wouldn't sell magazines. Only dirt does; wether its true or not.

    Didn't Andy Geiger also serve on the board with the NCAA rules and violations commitee at one time??

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Do you really think so? I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but jeez, do you really think Coop would do that?

    The logical step for ESPN to go from here is to track down every tutor that worked for the Athletic Department in the last decade. If they follow their M.O. with former players, they will surely find a couple disgruntled ex-employees willling to make up a story.
