Posey's Mom

  • I read in the Columbus Dispatch this morning that Posey's mom is upset and saying that tOSU is using her son as a scapegoat in this whole fiasco. For some reason this just really annoyed the shit out of me. How about instead of trying to degrade the university and push a crazy conspiracy agenda, you call your son and tell him to quit acting like a freaking idiot and take responsibility for his own actions.

  • Thats funny. I haven't heard anyone mention Posey at all the last 48 hours.

    This is not the first time she has had something to say about OSU's treatment of her son. Maybe its her son that's the problem?

  • Glad he didn't choose UM. Sounds like there has been a prima donna problem at OSU.

    I think Posey got screwed based on comments from his attorney who said only 5 hours were unaccounted for. This is nothing more than a witch hunt by Gene Smith who is trying to save his own job and make it appear to the NCAA that he is vigilant and on top of every detail. Posey is being scapegoated, I agree with his mom.

    The stupidest thing he did was taking the Tressel deal and agreeing to come back. He should have declared for the supplemental draft like Pryor did. Why put up with this picayune BS.

    Mike Hart was never one to get all caught up in wins and losses, or results overall. Far too complicated for Mighty Mouth. Nice to see Tunnel Thug Michael Shaw follow in his footsteps.

    I hate Mike Hart. Let me re-emphasize that: I HATE Mike Hart! Never has there been such a little b*tch that talks so much but not back it up. I love that OSU beat Michigan every year he was there. "I'm coming back to beat Ohio State." Yeah that sure worked real well for that POS

    Indeed smith is covering his own ass. Just shows how systemic all of this was and is within the football program.

  • The NCAA is the one that issued the suspension. I thought I read where Smith said he was very disappointed in the NCAA's decision to suspend Posey for an additional 5 games. How is this Smith's fault and how could Posey's Mom act like OSU was at fault when OSU had nothing to do with the suspension?

  • It's called getting their own. Posey wanted to get his own for coming in here and expecting to be drafted high for a big pay out. Then he knew he can get more- so why wait and get perks now while he's in college. So Posey gets his own again. Now after this debacle going on, his drafting status is iffy or losing ground, his free perks have been exposed, and now he might lose out of his big pay day. He will play on Sundays, but could lose money in the draft position. So know that screws with mamma's future money. So what do you do. You speak to the media of how this is unfair, and deep down she is thinking "my baby can't get his own anymore, what is going on here, no mo free perks, OH my god, what is my baby going to do now. Please let him get drafted and get his own, please. I need my baby to support me, please."

    Nice mis-quote of the attorney. What he said was, even if you consider the questionable hours, it only amounts to 5. Obviously, the NCAA feels there are more than the 5 hours in question.

    Posey is getting what he deserves!

    I've read alot of your posts and don't always agree, but you are too smart to head down the racial path. C'mon man.

    Unfortunately, blue is right here. Now, you are not my boy blue....but your right. Pryor, Posey, Herron and crew....they put themselves above the institution.

    "Racial path?" are you kidding me??? This has nothing to do with race. Posey didn't do this because of the color of his skin rather a poltical culture that is based upon entitlements (transcending all races) and political exploition of this mentality.

    Being a white man, I did not make up African-Americans usage of the terminology "getting their own" African-Americans did, African AMERICANS. Just like the usage of "bennies" "making it rain" etc etc etc. It's all based upon obtaining material benefit on a way that lacks integrity and actual work. And it is not any better than the crimes that happened with our banking system and wall street. And quite frankly, it is exactly the catering to this sort of mentality that has brought down this program. Heck, Gene Smith is the king-paradigm of the mindset. He actually believes he has nothing to do with this entire mess and blames everyone else but himself. Nice leadership no? It's like having our very own Barack Obama at THE Ohio State University.

    If the African-American community and their apologist can't handle this critique then they need to grow some and get in line with the rest of us who have to go without "getting theirs" ...

    OK Rush, calm down.

    I think players, regardless of skin color, should be free to pursue the same economic, free market opportunities as any other US citizen.

    I say screw the NCAA and their communist, anti-american, anti-constitutional agenda.

    I don't think he got screwed. While he may have worked more hours than what the NCAA and OSU have decided he worked, I still believe there is something fishy about the whole thing. No times cards, no way to actually prove hours, etc. It was a wink, wink, nod, nod type of deal. As I said on another board, now that the attorney has released the info that he turned over to the NCAA, if he and Posey are so confident that he can prove he was working when he says he was, he and the attorney should file suit against OSU and the NCAA demanding immediate reinstatement, a restraining order against the NCAA and OSU from making him ineligible until such time as due process and a hearing can be had, as well as an injunction against the NCAA from leveling any additional penalties against him or the university until said hearing. However, the attorney has said he doesn't foresee a suit being filed. That tells me they are not confident in their "evidence" proving he was working.

    After seeing some of the documentation and reading the story in the lantern and ny times, I end up with more questions than were answered. They paid him for his drive time to and from the work site, yet they didn't do it for Boom or Hall. Their reasoning was that this is what they do for union workers. They also say they paid him time and a half for working a saturday, as they do union workers. However, they chose to pay them wages below those of a union worker. So, on one hand, they are equal to a union worker but on the other hand, they aren't. It seems to me that there is someone throwing crap against the wall to try to justify the amount of money Posey was paid.

    This speaks nothing of why they would even be working a job that they weren't told how much they were being paid and no records of the hours they worked. It just smells.

  • Mike hart had a mouth, no doubt but I call posey and pryor prima donna because of their willingness to put the program in harms way due to their own selfish ways. It was all about them and getting their's. Sometimes it's a blessing not getting the selfish five star type. Not sure if you guys heard hart's latest idiot statements. In his case he just lacks a brain.

    I believe the attorney has turned over the evidence to the AP. I personally would love to see the NCAA sued, it's long past due. The problem is that it takes time and resources to file suit, and by the time these scholarship athletes have time and obtain adequate resources, they are in the pros. The kids who have families with the money to sue have no financial need to do so because they don't need to be earning money in college and are more than happy with the scholarship as remuneration for their services.

    With Posey, I do not believe the employment records of a private US citizen working for a private company should be subject to NCAA scrutiny. That's flat out wrong; unconstitutional in my opinion. If you were on a needs based scholarship, maybe you had to share income info with your school, but you certainly don't have to do this if you are a regular student, regardless of whether or not you are on academic scholarship. And everyone is free to pursue economic opportunities except some of these NCAA athletes.

    Not speaking to you here BB, but I really can't believe people on this website defend an organization such as the NCAA. Uneven enforcement, petty rules, basically a monopoly with a license to steal are the things I see. We've obviously been screwed over by these people, other schools are getting away with much bigger "violations", and the responses I see on this website is that we want to castrate the alleged players who broke their petty rules and earned a couple hundred bucks on the oval and mock their parents because they didn't raise their kids with the right values. And to top it off, we're now coming up with a bunch of BS blaming the black culture for creating people who are encouraging the embracement of free market principles. Unbelievable.

    As stated earlier, I get the idea that a "rules a rule" so to speak, and I agree Posey (and DiGeronimo) should have been alot smarter knowing the heat was on, a scholarship indeed has value and comes with strings attached, but there are other issues that need to be weighed in this equation that extend beyond making harsh and presumptive judgmental assumptions and accusations against Posey and his mother.

    For OSU's sake, Posey's mom and his lawyer need to shut up, because they could open up another avenue that OSU does not want opened up.

    However, if we ever want to have the school's reputation restored and integrity back, maybe it is a good thing they are talking. Clean up this mess and bad culture once and for all.

    Posey is a decent receiver, but nowhere near the quality we have become accustomed to. His absence will be felt slightly but not in a major way. I could not possibly care less if he returns or not. We have receivers now just as good or better. The O line needs to give the qb time and if so, we will be fine--unless jb is back there launching suborbital rockets.
