On my way home from Cbus this Morning I tuned into 97.1 The Fan and Kincade is doing the score rundowns and after the clips of Brax's TD run he states.'' Ohio State wins 63-38 but it doesn't matter they are cheaters!, In refrence to Tat Gate. When will ESPiN let tat gate die? When they hire host you better say you hate the tOSU or you are not getting the job,
“The only thing they can get me for is running a funeral parlor without a license.”
I guess we took a crap in their cornflakes of something! To hell with that douche bag!
I would love for him to step into the Locker Room and tell the Buckeyes that had nothing to do with with this Bowl Ban cheaters.
This goes back to 02 w/ the Media hate. Maybe longer (even back to Woody) considering how many times we've been highly ranked only to get beat by scUM or lose in the Rose Bowl.
More of the same from ESPiN. No worries. It will always be this way.
I heard that. Said the Bucks are irrelevant. Tell that to Mich. St. and Neb. Plus, it doesn't take talent to bash someone continually.
Kinkade is from Pennsylvania, went to Temple U. Likely a butthurt Penn State fan, wouldn't surprise me a bit.
Hopefully Urban heard the comments and plays them for the locker room before the Pedophile State game.
Ummm...Never heard of the dude. His opinion can't carry much weight.
Anyway...Urban cares not and will show him the light soon enough.
If this D-bag had any "talent" he would'nt be on the air at the crack of dawn on Sunday morning..real prime gig for sports talk..just a hater who shows his ignorance every time he opens his yap.
John Kincade is an asshole! He is on 680 the FAN here in Atlanta. You should have heard him defend Newton during the Auburn cheating season. If I EVER see him out and about I will kick his Fucking ass for all of you.

+1 Stab that Cocksucker
That is exactly what this goofy nerd is....butthurt over poor lil' PeeSU.
I know the 'ESPN hates us' philosophy here on this board..... But I think we should point these Stu Pedasso's out at every opportunity. Yes, all schools are bashed. But this not my imagination. It is disproportionate.
ESPN sent investigators to Columbus and spent lots of money pursuing the 'Sunshine Laws' trying to dredge up new dirt on Ohio State. They are tabloid at best.
Continue on OSU haters. If you think you hate us now, wait until about three years from now!

Ya I don't know of too many schools they've file lawsuits against to try to dig deeper, either. It is what it is. And it will not change.
I wouldnt recognize him if he knocked at my front door. Let him do his loser up dates and dog OSU if he wants to. Espn has moved on. The guys obviously not gotten the memo.
They (media, message boards) make the 'Tat Gate' fiasco sound more sinister than anything that has happened in CFB to date.
When you think about it, that's all they got on tOSU. That's the first response from anyone in a debate about how good tOSU was, is, or will be again. Come on, tough guys...THAT'S IT? That's all you can come up with?
Don't give it much more attention than a chuckle.
Actually its been ongoing since January 9th 2007--just hours after we were humiliated by UF in the BCS title game.
In 2002 people there didn't hate us because we were winning because we hadn't been. We were coming off a 7-5 season and before that a 4-loss one. It had been four years since we last fielded a competitive and top-ranked team. So in large part ESPN were saying we didn't stand a chance against the overwhelming favorite Canes. Nothing wrong with that so much because we weren't winning impressively week after week. We appeared to be a team that was winning by luck and against a supposed Miami juggernaut, how would we fare? Not well according to them and many others.
They saw us as being another Nebraska, the team they had thrashed just the year before in the Rose Bowl 37-14. They honestly didn't know for sure. Sure there was some disrespect but after we pulled off the win, ESPN the magazine called it the greatest ever national championship game.
And in an unrelated matter, Sports Illustrated picked us to repeat as champions in '03.
Now of course where it got ugly was between the summer of '03 and winter of '04. That was at the peak of the so-called Maurice Clarett scandal. And we can all recall how many at that network were taking shots not only at him but this program as well. As if they were hoping it'd be enough to get the NCAA to come in and strip us of the crystal ball the way Clarett had Shawn Taylor in the title game.
So once that died down, it was back to the gridiron. And what we had shown is that we were no fluke. That we had won three consecutive BCS Fiesta Bowls and winning at least a share of the B10 title in each of those years except in '03 and '04.
By the latter end of the 2005 season people were beginning to say how "this could be the best team in the nation. How it was too bad they won't get a chance to play against U$C and again vs Texas. And that "love" if you will, carried over to the '06 season. Even May wasn't hating on us. Just about every analyst on that network who had a pick, picked us to win the championship. To them they made it sound and seem like a slam dunk guarantee. "Troy Smith will win the Heisman and Ohio State will win the national championship." That was the going line at the time.
ESPN the magazine stated how during Christmas we were getting fitted for our championship rings--before we had even played the Gators. That's how confident everyone seemed to be that we'd get it done. And then when we didn't, it was "Fuck the Buckeyes!" "Not enough speed." "Big Ten is slow and not as spirited as schools in the south and in the west." "Troy Smith isn't big enough to play QB in the NFL. Just look how he was chased down by those $EC linemen."
In essence after the Miami game in 2003, ESPN began showing us love. That love affair would again, pick up late in the '05 season and on through the epic #1 vs #2 matchup vs Michigan in '06. But once we got humiliated in Glendale, the deal was off. Had we won, who knows. But since we didn't and then to make matters worse, we lose to another $EC school, they really rallied against us. And nowhere was this most evident than in Pat Forde's piece about someone blocking us from making it back. Commentators were saying "Please, U$C stop them now so we won't have to see another BCS title game ruined."
Part of the hate was that we upset Miami after a controversial call by the ref, another part was because we helped "ruin" two straight BCS title games, the other was either a combination of each or, the fact that they couldn't stand Tressel with his buttoned-up demeanor. This is why many at that network were excited when they heard about the "Tattoo-gate" scandal. Because it gave them "dirt" on the "Vest." We all knew about Petrino, Saban, Carroll and countless other coaches out there and some of their indiscretions and hypcritical behaviors. But when it became public knowledge that Tressel knew in advance, they went all in on him and this program but still mostly on him. They'd cite his books and all he said against what he did.
They, like us, knew that this was nothing major. That he didn't commit any crime, just that he wasn't forthcoming and perhaps a bit hypocritical. But that was enough for them to go all in on him. And so that's where this E$PiN clown comes in.
The 41-14 loss is like a Scarlet letter and quite frankly its getting old and tired. It was one game where the team had 9 weeks between games. Nobody EVER mentions the Oklahoma/USC debacle 55-19 OR when Nebraska obliterated the Gators 63-24 in a title game. Its ridiculous.
