    Ohio State faithful petition president

    SIAP....didn't see it on the front page

    please let's keep this thread on topic and off politics (the Buckeyes)

    http://msn.foxsports.com/collegefoot...ionship-111912

    “The Ohio State University football team is one win away from an undefeated season. However, due to imposed sanctions, they are not allowed to participate in their conference’s championship game or the following bowl season. While a punishment for past indiscretions is to be expected, a bowl season ban is too harsh for a few young men trading memorabilia for tattoos and some change. The offending players and coach who covered it up are no longer part of the program. Please exercise your executive power to pardon the NCAA’s excessive sanctions placed on The Ohio State Buckeyes to enable a rightful, satisfying culmination to the college football season for the American people.”
    The petition has since been removed by whitehouse.gov for violating their terms of participation.

    "A long way," he said after being asked how far the Crimson Tide had come since Coach Nick Saban arrived three years ago. "I guess you could say it's the distance from Shreveport to Pasadena."

    The rules apply to every one, but the big whatever they are.

    They might have avoided this fate if they had taken the voluntary postseason ban last season rather than playing in the Gator Bowl last season.

    I don't feel bad for them at all.

    Typical. It's different until it's your team.

    Using the line of reasoning here, shouldn't Alabama be the 2002 SEC West champions and get a BCS bowl?

    I think whoever did this was just trying to be funny. No big deal.

    Okay guys, I know a lot of you are going to look at this and laugh "funny or not" but getting on with it. I actually agree with the statement. For one I don't get the big deal about selling some stuff or the tats for that matter either.

    IF NFL PLAYERS CAN DO IT NCAA PLAYERS SHOULD BE ALOUD TO

    To be even more "funny" I think most if not all NCAA sactions are very questionable including the ones that were placed on Bama a decade or so ago. I honestly think Coaches should be able to recruit how they want to with out rules. I think palyers should be able to do what the want with boosters such as taking cash, fishing trips, letting the coach give your dad $100,000 and then your dad sayss he knows nothing about it.

    Like I said I know a lot of people who read this are going to be like "your crazy" but its my true thought.
    Live your life like you wish you had.

    I hate it for Ohio State fans, but that's the way it goes...
    If Notre Dame loses then they're the last man standing, and no one will know if they were the real deal or not.

    You're CRAZY. What about the recruits rights to not be abused by recruiters especially during the time they are taking tests trying to graduate, OH WAIT! You prolly think they shouldn't be made to study to graduate. The school with the most money wins the NC every year because they can afford the best players. Well, so much for parity.
    Life is short, ocassionally bend the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.

    OK, they play in the BIG? - Strike 1.
    They cheated - Strike 2.
    Urban Meyer is their coach - Strike 3.

    Heck, I 'll give them a 4th strike.... They are OSU.

    They should be thankful for the bowl ban. It prevents them from getting smoked again by another SEC school.
