    Lol. No lashes needed. Something in the Tribune HTML mangled this forum's attempt to reproduce their article. It's possible they've put something in to do that intentionally, no way to know.

    The article
    I e-mailed Teddy and asked his source stating ESPiN Lame Day really was not comming.
    Workin' Gal noted that she was to work for Game Day at OSU all along and on Monday they stated there was a change in plans.
    Sure wish her message wasn't eliminated because if she didn't mind I was going to note the little discrepency (what we are getting used to from ESPiN) to Teddy.

    But ESPN decided the bigger story was in Salt Lake City, where fifth-ranked Utah needs to beat Brigham Young to become the first team from a non-BCS conference to play in a BCS game.

    In any case Geiger said ESPN would not have been welcomed in Columbus.

    "Given some of the emotion around ESPN in this community and the required security . . . we probably would have asked them to go someplace else," he said. "Our welcome mat is perhaps not as thick as it once was."

    Geiger apparently made his position clear to Dave Brown, who coordinates ESPN's college football scheduling.

    "Clearly they were trying to agitate us," Shapiro said. "There's no reason for that."


    Oh yeah! Right Shapiro. Utah and BYU, now there's a rivalry that will pull in a national audience and it really is important to be right on the scene! Yep! Agitate you? Do you really think the cost of this stupid challenge has really begun to sink in? As you TV guys so love to say, stay tuned. A whole week without ESPN. Damn, that feels great!

    Another ESPN inaccuracy.

    They've been pursuing/creating the 'Clarett story' since the Ragazine ran the crappy "One and Done?" article in the middle of the 2002 season.

    Assclowns.

    Just wanted to note that the thread was deleted on BLion's request...

    Got a PM asking about why it was deleted and thought everyone should know.

    Now back to your original programming....

    Yes, I take full responsibility. The HTML Gods were not with me on my cut-and-paste of the article, and it resulted in a fatal error. Again, thanks to Clarity and 21 for their help...and my apologies to those who posted in it.

    That's because we said No before they decided to come here.
