Glen Mason is a former OSU assistant and player, so there are ties there. It's just that he is also a former D-I head coach and has become a pretty competent broadcaster as well. So he isn't going to be all rah-rah.
It struck me that the other schools they hired former players (and some from just last few years) to fill in and help out for the weekend. Those younger guys still heavily invested, yeah they're gonna be rah-rah.
Regarding Miami and NCAA, my guess is they get time served for a 2-year bowl ban and that's it. So nothing there to really talk about. Yeah, it's pending, but I think they solve that and move on.

I'm starting to get the feeling ESPN has changed how they are going to cover scandals. I hope so anyway. The way they put almost every unsubstantiated Internet rumor on their ticker for hours was really bad form and annoying.
I thought Glen Mason was pretty positive about the Buckeyes during the Spring game. Do you think people want to tune in to their own Spring game and hear negativity about their team? Most OSU fans would be pissed if commentators were discussing Tatgate during the entire Spring game.
Glen Mason loves Ohio State and has stated such when he was passed over for Jim Tressel for the job in 2001. Many will remember the article in the Dispatch when he brought his team here in `2000, and they whipped Cooper and the Buckeyes 29-17 and Mason supposedily cried or got tears in his eyes while on the Bus coming thru the OSU campus and High street...and was heard to mutter about how "he still loved thisplace"...from his earlier coaching day here......I thought he did a great job in the Spring game.
I really enjoyed hearing Glen Mason call the game, it would be great if he got to do a regular season one.
Mason is a buckeye and ye loves woody, Earle, and osu.
