    There's a right way to handle things.
    You want to fire someone, you look them in the eye and tell them they screwed up , and there's the door.

    That's not something I thought he would/should delegate.
    That's my opinion, and I'm stickin to it. ( coffee )

    Thank goodness your opinion and what "Tressel would have done" doesn't matter anymore.

    Especially what "Tressel would have done."I'm so happy it doesn't matter anymore because we seen the results of tressel disicipline and quite frankly we seen how Tressel performs vs a guy like Urban on the field as well.

    Personally it doesn't matter who told him he was outta here. Meyer didn't know him like that and even if he did, Clarke screwed up.

    What difference does your opinion make? All you care about is wins and losses, so what you think about the way it was handled is irrelevant--just stick to football, not ethics--you don't know much about either, but you certainly no less about ethics than you do about anything else.

    Hello 1BuckFanInMich:

    That post of alphabuckeye's was in response to my post above it....
    and I chose not to correct him at the time, but I'll do it now so that it's clear.

    Alphabuckeye obviously gathered a few thoughts through his reading of this thread up to that point, and mistakenly assigned my entry as one that defended Tress.

    He was wrong in that assumption, I'm doing neither.
    I'm saying that in my opinion Urban should have dismissed the kid, and done it himself.
    I'm not swaying from that, but it's my opinion :-)

  • Also clarifying that my original stance on the thread is that (we may never know, but) we don't know the whole story.
    We've only got Clark's comment.

    I'll go and see if there are any updates from him. Haven't checked twitter lately.

  • Hey Clarke, quit crying! You are the one that fucked up. Quit blaming Urban Meyer for your actions. Man up and accept the consequences.

    After 7 pages of comments, I've decided that in light of accepted illegal underaged drinking by minors, MAYBE coach Meyer should have broken the news to DC personally. Although after the ____gun (fill in the blank bb/paintball) issue, my thought is DC should have NO room for error. TIMES HAVE CHANGED, underaged drinking is Illegal, drinking and driving is illegal, a severe crime these days. If you still think "boys will be boys" is alright then consider this, How will you feel when YOUR son or daughter is shot in the eye (blinded for life) or run over (maimed or killed) by a scholarship football player ?....................................................... In light of those feelings, does anyone really give a fat sh!t whether nor not the coach boots his a$$ off the team in person or not ? NOT ME!!!
