New Article up on ESPN

Discussion in 'ESPN's 04-05 war against tOSU and Tressel' started by drinkalotabeer, Nov 11, 2004.

  1. Just saw this on ESPN. Using Robert Smith as a source. Apologies if this already was posted, but I haven't seen it on here yet. Strange that Smith has been defending OSU on two radio shows, now this comes out...

    Happy to see former players defending the university.

    I love the headlines that say that "ex-football player believes" and "Booster money train at OSU" when the actual story says that Robert Smith doesn't believe that coaches were involved, that he never received money, nor even an offer of money, and that he heard rumors of it happening in 1992.

    Ridiculous.

    I love it. Smith refutes most of what MC was saying, but the opening statement in the article reads: "Former Ohio State running back Robert Smith believes Maurice Clarett is telling the truth........"

    Does anyone find it fascinating that the Robert Smith article is posted as one of ESPN's top headlines on their frontpage, but it cannot be found on the college football page?

    Part of me wonders if all of the complaints/hate mail/etc they have received from OSU fans has them worried about posting a third day of OSU-hating stuff to that page. Clearly it is a much more worthy main or secondary topic than clarett has been for the past two days (with the same story) on that page.

    Just a thought. Maybe we're getting to them :)
