Urban Meyer Retired...the rules to the recruiting forum have not changed

    MD Buckeye posted this in the recruiting forum rules sticky at the top of the page, but I feel like posters are not actually reading the existing thread based on the comments I keep reading in the individual recruiting threads. I hope this post maybe makes it clear and we can just merge it in or delete it after the fact, but felt it warranted its own thread for now.

    We have a strict policy in the recruiting against bashing recruits, which will not just be ignored because Urban Meyer retired and some of you feel like recruits should have blind faith to our school regardless of that news. I am as bummed about the retirement as any other fan is, but it doesn't change how we have handled things here. To be clear, bashing does not just mean an outright insult or negative comment against a recruit, but also posts that state a recruit is wrong for not committing to Ohio State or because of backing off because of the news UFM has retired. They are young adults making the hardest decisions of their lives, and everything is not as simple to a 16-18 year old kid deciding how the rest of their life might end up as an OSU fan on the internet.

    Whether you all agree with it or not, Urban Meyer retiring is going to make some recruits reassess the biggest decision of their young adult lives. We all hope that the best recruits will ultimately decide that OSU is still the right choice and they believe in Ryan Day as the future. We should all root for that to happen and the program is going to be just fine no matter what. But the mocking and second guessing of some recruits in the last 48 hours is not acceptable at BP, and will not be tolerated in the recruiting forum.

    Please clean it up. Thank you.
