Stewart Mandel - stirring the pot...

    this guy is hilarious.... I think he's the Tibor of the sports reporters. You know this comment will be sure to attract the attention of the emailing Buckeye fans. :slappy:

    With Tuesday's news that the once-sacred Michigan-Ohio State game is now the SBC Michigan-Ohio State Classic, I'd like to announce that the Mailbag is also opening itself to potential sponsors. The way it will work is, for the right price, I will take a new head shot with your company's name stripped across my forehead. And the beauty is, we can have a new sponsor every week. The cash registers will be overflowing.

    In fairness, while it's easy to criticize the two schools for selling out, the reality is that for all the millions and millions in revenue major football teams generate, most athletic departments still struggle to break even. In many cases, they're dependant on football to bankroll not only its own obscene operating costs but those of every last team the school fields (tennis, swimming, etc.).

    Ohio State AD Andy Geiger said the $530,000 his school will receive from SBC will go toward, among other things, athletic scholarships and the library.

    Apparently, Ohio State's coloring books are out of date.

    I never knew that douche bag had balls. That's a kick in the nuts.

    He rosh-am-bowed with us, and went first.

    But, if that would have been any other school, then it would be funny as hell

    This is a poor shot by that poser. He takes a shot at OSU, but somehow forgets that scUM is accepting the other $530,000.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    That's because scUM has up to date coloring books.

    no, that's because scUM is using the money to order their first set of coloring books... seems they thought the library was a place to go if you wanted to be quite... they just found out they needed books in the building... (we will let them find out on their own, they also need to order markers)...

    im sure he doesnt care about them. tibor is right....he just does it to get fans to email him and bitch so he has more of a reason to hate OSU. the best solution is to realize this and not get mad.

    I give Mandel a tip of the cap for a well-executed insult. I don't take it personally. I know firsthand of the extent of Ohio State's excellence as an academic institution - If Mandel truly doesn't agree, that's his problem, not mine.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    We should all chip in to pay him for taking a picture with "Asshole" written across that billboard he calls a forehead.

    Fuck Stewart Mandel. He's a complete idiot.

    My guess is that he does not care about either OSU or Michigan. It's all about selling papers, or generating hits on his article to show sponsors. The media in general pursues controversial events or publishes controversial things to generate public interest. How many extra hits do you think he draws by putting that last line in --- I bet quite a few. They live within the environment that we create.
     
  15. Why do you people give a flying ferret what some 'sportswriter' thinks or says in his internet column?
