    i said it a few weeks ago, and i'll repeat it here.

    it is my opinion that as it becomes more and more apparent that osu is not going to be sanctioned by the NCAA, ESPN is going to pander to osu more and more as the offseason rolls along.

    provided nothing stupid happens between now and next season, ESPN will get on the buckeye wagon because possible appearances by gameday during the texas and iowa games are at stake.

    also, with fox looking to get its hands on a college football TV deal, ESPN doesnt want to lose its big ten deal.

    Who cares what Maisel thinks? Isn't this the guy who was talking about what a bunch of shits Geiger and Tressel were and about the criminal behavior at Ohio State just a few weeks ago.

    It is less than a month since the Alamo Bowl and the ugly attack and slur on Buckeyes everywhere.

    This is not love. Any idiot knows that we are among the favorites in 2005.

    No, this is not love, it is a recognition that ESPiN are about to be badly embarrassed over their disgusting behavior. NCAA comments, and maybe leaks about the investigation, could be making it pretty clear to them that:
    • There is no support for disgusting charges ESPiN has repeated and tried to give credence to.
    • Ohio State will soon be in a position to refute the allegations, charge by charge.
    If you're ESPiN, that's not good but you can handle it. There's still the possibility that ESPiN credibility is not harmed too badly because "the NCAA reported that it couldn't find significant proof of any more problems at OSU". Put a bit of spin on it, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, fawn over Ohio State and it all goes away.

    But it won't be that easy because these damn Ohioans have something that died so long ago at ESPiN that they have forgotten it: pride and honor. Pride and honor will not allow Ohio State to just walk away from this attack thanking their lucky stars that it has at least stopped and ESPiN is now saying nice things.
    • If these indications are correct, the NCAA report will confirm not only that Ohio State is clean, but also that
    • Ohio State is setting standards in compliance with transparent and innovative sports administration policies and procedures.
    • If so, the revelation that Ohio State is the poster child for transparent compliance administration puts ESPiN in an incredibly difficult position because,
    • ESPiN cannot report the NCAA findings with any spin.
    • ESPiN will have to say that there was NO BASIS for most of the allegations and give the implication that they were wrong, because that is exactly what the rest of the press will be reporting.
    • Moreover, although they will turn on Clarett in the end as we all have predicted, turning on Clarett will not be enough to stop the knock on ESPiN credibility because they made this an ESPiN battle cry, especially at the Alamo Bowl.
    • As a result, ESPiN are beginning to see their own Alamo. Do not discount the incredible harm such a knock on credibility would have on any organization that presumes to report news, even if it is filled with "entertainment".
    So, what does this mean?
    • Every day closer to the final NCAA report clearing Ohio State, ESPiN's credibility weakens a bit more.
    • It may be less apparent now, in the off-season, but alarm bells are ringing at ESPiN and
    • The only warm feeling that Friend and the other protagonists are feeling is the fecal matter in their pants, and even that is cooling! Now would be a good time for some of these guys to be polishing off their resumes (be sure to be accurate, there are examples that little lies on your resume can come back and bite you!). "Say, aren't you the guy that wrote all that stuff that got ESPiN burnt so badly over Ohio State?"
    • The recent problems at Tennessee, South Carolina and across the sports landscape increasingly illustrate the indecency in characterizing Ohio State as "Criminals U". But it has another effect.
    • Every time an AD sees something like this happen on one of his teams, he's gonna be thinking, "am I next for the character attack?"
    • If we listen to the comments coming in from other athletics directors across America, its clear that they feel disgust for ESPiN over the unjust hounding of Andy Geiger into retirement. It's a small community and they all know that they could be the next victim, after the indecency of this campaign against Ohio State.
    • Think that Albert or May or any of these guys will be able to interview an AD in years to come without the memory of Geiger's treatment playing in the background? Kinda impairs your ability to get that scoop, don't it!
    • A feeding frenzy by competitive media could be just about to start and ESPiN know it.
    Yeah, but what does it really mean?

    So, now is not the time for Ohio State and its fans to weaken in our resolve to see the reputation of this fine University, its athletics department and its management, staff and student athletes restored...
    • We cannot forgive or forget ESPiN's disgusting, premeditated actions, the slurring of Geiger and Tressel, the chanting of repeated allegations that they knew to be untrue, or the slur that they cast on every Buckeye student athlete.
    • And we have a right to demand an apology and restitution of the pride and honor that have been impaired.
    • What has happened here is not about our cherished value of freedom of the press but rather a travesty of it.
    ESPiN can change this by apologizing and saying they were wrong. And before someone gathers a lynching party, they already may be planning to do this the minute that they see a report. That would at least allow them to have a basis for apologizing and give them the opportunity to save a little bit of face.

    If you're like me, at the present time you couldn't give a rat's ass if ESPiN save any face. But we should remember that we once didn't feel about them as we do now.

    Also, we should remember the admonition of Sun Tzu in the classic The Art of War, always leave the enemy with a way to retreat from the battle field, they will then be more likely to give up without fightng to the death and your chances of victory are greater.

    But, if this report does clear Ohio State and they do fail to directly and transparently apologize, then we would be as wrong as them if we simply forget about this and welcome them back.

    Right now, we "have these guys by the short and curlies". Think about it. The two largest universities in America, both ranked in the top 10, are about to play at the 'Shoe and ESPiN is on the outside looking in because of their disgusting actions.

    Think of GameDay on that day at BYU or at UM. Think how the rest of the press will jump on that! Think of their embarrassment as their competitors recite all day that they are not at the 'Shoe because they are not welcome.

    BOYCOTT ESPiN!
    NO TO ESPiN AT THE OHIO STATE - TEXAS GAME WITHOUT AN APOLOGY.
     
  9. Well said, Steve19. I have little faith that amoral espee'n officials and producers will admit to much. They will fall back on what they've already said: "We just reported what these ex-players told us."

    I agree with you that all of us Bucks need to never forget how drastically we and our football program was dissed by these formidable assholes at espee'n.

    I also hope that their gameday will not be invited for the Texas game. Yet, if it is, I believe gameday will experience a hostile and unforgetable embarrassing time near, at or in the Shoe. I don't think these east coast producers...who seldom if ever leave Conn., realize how badly they have treated the Buckeye Nation. Totally unnecessary, unwarranted and unfair.

    Great analysis and writeup, btw.

    Maybe ESPiN won't anticipate the reaction if they come to OSU, but I'll bet OSU does. I think it could get ugly and be embarassing for OSU if Gameday came for the the Texas game.

    Mili,

    I was at the 10 yard line and charging fast when that picture was taken of Holmes. In fact that was one of the most thrilling times in my life because after we danced a little there I got to sing with the team and about 1000 other people in front of the band. The field looked like some of the beaches in Hawaii by the time the crowd died down. I know you need sand under your sod for draining purposes, but I wonder what coastal town is missing their beach.

    Anyway, I do not get starstruck too easily (except for when it comes to OSU) but standing next to Ginn and Nate Salley had me shaking like a virgin in her first backseat audition. 3 weeks from tomorrow is Stag night in St. Henry, OH. THAT HELPS GET ME THROUGH TO SPRING BALL.
