    Hey Chief,

    Obviously you didn't attend Notre Dame, that vaunted academic establishment, because if you did you would know the difference between "their" and "there." :biggrin:

    If there is ever a site called Fighting Irish Planet I'm gonna make sure I register over there as BuckeyeChief so I can try to interject the Buckeyes into every discussion about Notre Dame that I possibly can. :roll1:

    NDChief - In 2 of your last 3 posts you stated that you didn't start this thread. I did start this thread and it was about the academic success of 8 (probably 10 within a year) of the 13 OSU seniors selected in the NFL draft. It was started to show that even though Izzy and Ira seem to be dominating the news, there was something positive happening that seemed to not get much play in the media. Now some poster baited you about what your spin would be (and to be honest, your initial spin was very very predictable), and you took the bait. No problem with nibbling the bait chief but you seemed to swallow the hook on this one. Mud makes a very good point

     
  7. Prof - The article you posted is what you thought was grad. rate success of the OSU football team. But a 61% is nothing to brag about.

    Did you think I wouldn't catch that? Or maybe what was more un-real is that you though it was good.....

    A 5-7 record would record would cause as much of an up-roar at OSU as a 61% grad. rate would cause at ND....

    ND fans are ticked at a 5-7 record while you guys celebrate a 61% grad. rate!

    NDChief, you know how this works. OSU football board, OSU football topics. I don't want to hear a "he said/she said" argument. If someone baited you into a response, then fine. Make a response and move on. You know better than to continue to push this thread to a Notre Dame theme ... whether or not you are being "baited". You are a guest and as such you have less "wiggle room" than OSU fans. You know this to be true. You know that placing the blame of your responses on "baiting/trolling" is weak. Frankly you're a better (smarter) poster than that, and I expect more from you. Again, say your piece and move to the next topic ... continuing the "argument" is fruitless.

    To everyone else (not grad21, since he's already realized the error), stop baiting NDChief to respond about ND, unless you really want to hear about ND.

    Thanks ... now let's resume our previously scheduled thread.
     
  10. This will be my last post on this subject as 3 yards is right! I would have moved on a while ago but I wanted to see if anyone would actually step up and say that 61% is not real good but no one did!

    But the bait stuff is CRAP as the posters that brought me into this actually either couldn't figure out that 6 into 13 was not real good or that they thought 61% was good.

    I don't give a shit about which school has a higher grad rate. I care about which school kicks ass on the ball field. I'll take a 14-0 national title team, or even an 11-2 BCS bowl winner with a 61% grad rate (which by the way is rising under Tressel's helm), over a 5-7 record with a 90+% grad rate or even a 100% grad rate any time. Obviously I want our players to also be successful students, but my focus for the Buckeye football team is football. This ain't the speech or debate team we're talking about here.

    NDCHIEF sticks up for his team in whatever way is positive. If ND's grad rate wasn't higher than OSU's, then he'd be pointing overall team GPA instead (provided it was higher than OSU's), and if that wasn't the case, then it would be something else not related to football such as average dorm room square footage or walk time between classes or the professor-to-student ratio.

    Do not presume to know what I think. It was originally posted to give balance to the negative publicity OSU had been receiving with respect to Izzy and Ira. And the graduation rate is moving higher under Tressel's watch also.

    Again, you spouting off what you believe I am thinking. Again, it is improving under Tressel's watch. Come back and tout ND's graduation rate when they win a NC AND when they have, say, 10 seniors drafted.

    The prior three items I quoted you on underscores exactly why ND is my most hated team in any sport. The arrogance and holier-than-thou attitude that permeates through many of their fans is sickening. Give me a f-ing break! If ND were to win the NC in 2 years and only 61% of the seniors graduated, all would still be well under the dome. But for that to happen, Field Goal Jesus would have to become Touchdown Jesus.

    Actually it was 8 out of 13 NOT 6 out of 13. And for the mathematical record, the percentage should be 62%. It's called rounding; you truncated instead of rounding. And next year when the other 2 finish their 2 remaining classes the percentage will be 77%.

    Hey dumbfuck, ever hear of a calculator? 6 into 13 is 61%? That's news to me.

    The article states that 2 more are a quarter away from graduating. Since the NCAA gives 6 years, It'll be 10 out of 13, which is 77% for you mathematically-challenged individuals. I'll take 77% and #4 in the country versus 90% and bottom-of-the-MAC-level football.

    Finally, nobody brought you into this thread. Nobody brought you to this board. Nobody is keeping you from leaving either.
