ESPN's Motivation

Discussion in 'ESPN's 04-05 war against tOSU and Tressel' started by DaytonBuck, Nov 9, 2004.

    DaytonBuck I've always liked them

    I think it's pretty obvious this is some kind of hit piece against OSU. What's ESPN's motivation in all this? Why release it now?

    I've said it once before, and I guess I'll say it again.. This is their way of getting back at us for playing boring football, and having no offense.

    It sells magazines, gets air time, pisses us all off and I swear MoC will do this every year that he can right before the michigan game.

    I agree that this is one of two most likely motivations. If our "manilla" style of offense does indeed succeed in winning games and championships, then college football may not be as exciting to watch, and along those same lines, their jobs may not be as fun and they may not get the same great ratings.

    The other reason, it seems to me, could be that ESPN is upset with Jim Tressel's stance on "keeping things in-house," and not opening up his program to the public as much as other football teams around the nation.

    Either way, it's garbage, and I for one am especially pained that Kirk is associated with that network.

    Motivation? what else could it be?

    It's sex, sex, sex,and more sex. That motivates me...

    On a serious note, I would be interested in seeing ESPN the Magazine's 2-year trends for overall number of subscribers and number of new subscribers.

    CHICK: "Ohio State? Is that like in Dallas?"

    CLARETT: "You know it baby!"

    Just don't kick your own ass. If your foot gets stuck, you can't run for help.

    No offense, but this is bullshit. It's Herbie's job to analyze, and it's Herbie's opinion that Tressel needs to change his offense. I've never heard Tressel disagree with that, either. Herbie publically said on his show last night that he is very close to Tressel and TOSU program (while he was defending both), and has the utmost respect for both.
