First of all, who cares if he cheers...he's still a buckeye. as uscvball pointed out, Herbie has mishandled his allegiance by damning us at times as well, so whatever. How can this guy try and credibly call into doubt another journalists motivations when he's droning on and on (repeating himself over and over again), with the same Big Ten hating drivel. While it's clear that there are business ties between networks and conferences, i'm thinking the B10 network might be the ones pimping the buckeyes, much more than the folks over at ESPN who drug our program through the mud over the clarrett thing, and the Troy Smith issue, yet barely blink over the Reggie Bush situation(sorry vball, but true, not saying he's guilty, but proportionate coverage? methinks not) Singling out individual players for ridicule also makes him a pretty professional journalist, who I would be really inclined to listen to as much as possible:dis:. Making a valid point about media hypocrisy doesn't entitle you to take pot shots at an amateur athlete. It's clear he's obviously more interested in pimping the conference of his choice. Not saying the SEC doesn't deserve the credit, but come on, they got plenty of love from the media, so excuse me for gagging on the stench that this article of trash has eminating from my computer screen. End of Rant...hope everyone is well over here, i know it's been a minute. Read Mandel's article on Perrilloux's maturity, and i am excited for you guys to have a good year! Good luck as always!
