haha, no intent to piss them off? hey, i'm on your side, but i have a feeling the thread was more than just to make sure our MI friends were up to date with the world news.
We care, because he's not a skunk! F*ichigan.
Auburn...flipping bastards. Someone should tell on them. Maybe Bret will whine for Brady.
I care deeply for people from the State of Michigan. well a couple people anyhow. well IB is pretty cool. Knowledge is power.
“The only thing they can get me for is running a funeral parlor without a license.”
Well now we know the economy is still doing well in alabama. im guessing tho that a nice chunk of change just left the state tho!
IMO, Something weird going on with the recruiting with this kid to me. In the beginning he was ALL scum. Something changed somewhere during the high school season. I don't know what.
Now he has decided on Auburn???? WOW????ok
would almost of wished Diamond to stay in the big ten then feed more talent into the SEC, well it is Michigan so almost.
Y'all hear anything on Diggs? Heard he is a OSU lean.

EDIT: I started to post this in the thread that was locked. It was in response to someone that said the NCAA investigation into Auburn recently was weak....and then I just got to rambling, because that's what I often do . I see a lot of "Auburn must have bought him" in this thread too....and that's okay, I get it. Not that it matters too much, but Auburn has been recruiting Diamond hard for a long time. He took his visit a long time ago and we've been on him hard for a long time. It wasn't a shock to anyone following Auburn recruiting that he ended up with us. Anyway....below is the post I had just made on the other thread before they locked it. And since I taken 5 minutes to write it all out, I thought I'd toss it in here.
I don't like the title of the thread or the first post, but it is a pretty lame tweet coming from someone that works at this site. Fans? Sure, say whatever you want. But "media" types should have a little higher standard.
As for the investigation....I hope you're kidding. Did you read the NCAA report? They spent over 9 months all over the country, interviewing some 50+ people, acquiring every last email, phone record, and financial record possible from the athletic department, boosters, Newtons, churches, etc. Not only did they find nothing related to Cam, but they didn't even find other random secondary violations either. It wasn't a weekend trip with two investigators asking a few questions to a handful of nobodies.
Anyway, I just thought the tweet was pretty classless. I mean, if we pay for players, how do you explain that we're 13th in the rankings right now? How did we miss on Goldman, Yeldon, Bush, Alexander, Darby, and Williams? Everyone I just listed were higher on our board than anyone else we did get. How'd we miss on every one of our top 6 or 7 targets?
We don't have a squeaky clean past, no question, but we haven't been on probation for violations in football in 20 years. Shortly after Dye left, things changed drastically in our compliance department. It changed even more when our current AD came on board. Our current head of compliance is a former CIA guy that also worked at the NCAA in compliance for a long time. I know it's hard to convince anyone these days, but the athletic department does actually go to great lengths to try to keep it clean. Not that anyone wants to hear it, but the Cam Newton situation and how it relates to Mississppi State is a lot more simple than people think. But I won't go into that.
I'll just say this. When everything was going down with Ohio State recently, I was on the Blue Board watching people from other programs (primarily Michigan of course) really trashing you guys. And time after time I would watch Ohio State fans get on there and correct and explain irresponsible articles and reports by ESPN. So often ESPN would print some headline and article that really seemed incriminating to OSU. You'd read it and think you guys were as dirty as it got. Then a knowledgeable Buckeye would get on and put things in context, correct wrong implications. Now they didn't come out looking pure and innocent, but it was almost never nearly as bad as ESPN painted the picture.
I learned reading through that and watching that how Buckeye fans now felt like Auburn fans had felt the year before as ESPN and others pieced together all kinds of half-truths and left a lot up to the reader to connect dots that just simply weren't there to be connected. Innuendo at every turn. Seemed like a new hit each week. After watching what OSU went through, I could sympathize knowing how the truth about Cam Newton and what ESPN printed were often at odds. I came to see Ohio State going through the same thing.
I was born and raised in Atlanta, but had I been born about 3 months sooner, I would have been born in Dayton. My whole family is from Ohio. I have no hate for you guys. I just think having your mod make such tweets is pretty weak.
What will he say if Diggs picks OSU over Auburn? Will it be because your bag man offered more cash? Or will it be because Meyer just out recruited us fair and square? I guess we know the answer to that.
Good luck next year.
Seriously....you OSU peeps are crazy. The NCAA cleared AU earlier this year...you on the other hand got hit with sanctions. Quit being jelly that the SEC dominates in recruiting.
The sec where the grass on the field is not the only green the players see while they are in college.
"Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!"
I hope to God you are a female. Did you really just say " jelly" hahahaha
Yea Im female you butthurt OSU fan. Still cant get over how yall lost to a two loss LSU team.
Given that Urban started the whole Cam Newton sham by calling his buddy Pete Thamel -- which, if you (winless in the post season against the SEC) homers didn't know, resulted in complete exoneration by the NCAA -- Auburn did nothing wrong. Maybe Diamond was just not that interested in Tatoos.
Or losing constantly to the SEC!
Auburn fans....if you want to have a discussion have a discussion. No sense in coming on here and getting another thread locked. Make your points and share your views, but do you think anything you say is going to be heard or well received it you bookend the post with insults and sarcasm?
What's the point of even being on here if after you leave they just think even worse of us than they did before you posted?

Toomers Corner + Harvey Updyke = future toilet paper for Ohio Stadium.
AUHeismanTrust did this make your butt hurt lol I just got off the phone with Harvey he said ROOLLLLL DAMN TIDE
What's is great about you Urban... we owned you at Florida and well you are what you are... Please note Urban's record against Auburn... He had to leave the SEC because he was getting killed... By the way Auburn just went thru the most extensive NCAA investigation and well it is what it is lily white. Don't post stupid stuff you can't back up...The NCAA knows what happened at Miss St....and at Auburn.
Bahahahaha I love the Auburn fans coming over here to defend their "clean" record. You guys are nuts, the only reason that the NCAA didn't find anything is that they didn't want to. ANyone who believes the top SEC programs are totally clean is a total idiot/homer. With all the rumors constantly flying around about handshakes full of money and all the other crap that goes on in the SEC it's crazy to honestly believe that you're clean. Give me a break, you just got lucky that the NCAA decided to get out of dodge and not look very deep into you or the rest of the conference.
The reason OSU got what penalties it did is because the NCAA started digging around past the initial memorabilia for tats issue and found more stuff. Auburn got ridiculously lucky that they didn't do the same for you when they were sniffing around the Newton thing.

dead Tree huggers 2nt
dont know why im posting and really shouldnt say anything but here's the truth with jordan diamond, this is from my friend who works with rivals.. "jordan showed up on his official visit with his "mentor." his mentor asked urban how much are you willing to give jordan and in order to really get him you'll have to give his mom a job on campus." urban told him there's no way he's willing to sacrifice his reputation or ohio states(essentially make our rep worse) for this one guy.
personally i couldnt give two shits if any of you believe this or not. he has no reason to tell me this unless it happened. 8 months ago he told me with the right hire pittman and dodson will be buckeye locks. broke the news about floyd going to florida a few years ago. so enjoy this. and if not then dont, no biggie to me. back to my exile.
i can back it up. they paid jordan. just dont get caught, that's the difference between ohio state and auburn. we got caught you didnt. you cant be that big of a dumb fuck and really believe auburn doesnt pay its players. ive been to auburn, alabama.... you'd have to pay me to live there for 4 years as well
What happened to all these great olineman that the team from up north was suppose to get. I think our oline haul is a lot more impressive. Just saying
