    Good post BearBuck, +1.

    Whoever said this has nothing to do with morals and values is not thinking clearly ! All of these guys knew what they were doing was wrong. If they had any morales, a tablespoon of integrity, or valued their teammates and their place on the team....we wouldn't be on the NCAA's most wanted list. Instead, they would have followed the rules (however dumb those rules seem to be).

    Quit making excuses for these kids and deflecting the blame ! Blame the NCAA......really ? The Universities are the ones who established the NCAA to begin with, let's blame Ohio State for agreeing to abide by these rules (sarcasm).

    Let's place the blame and leave it where it belongs, on the players and the boosters.

    And plus 1 right back to you. Great points about the NCAA and how they came to be.

  • The me first mentality adopted by the Tat5 evidently was fostered by their parents who refuse to accept responsibility for their kids innopropriate actions. If the parents would have held their little superstars accountable when they were growing up we would probably not be in this mess to begin with.

  • You really have to marvel at mothers sometimes. I don't care if they're confronted with overwhelming, undeniable evidence of wrongdoing, they will defend their child to the ends of the Earth and claim they couldn't have possibly done anything wrong... oh no, not their child. They're perpetual victims. I think they were all given free dictionaries with this missing from each one:

    ac·count·a·bil·i·ty   /əˌkaʊntəˈbɪlɪti/ [uh-koun-tuh-bil-i-tee]
    noun

    1. the state of being responsible, liable, or answerable to someone or for some action.

  • I don't understand why the mothers get involved. I teach my kids do everything you can do with 110%. If things don't work out or something bad happens- that is part of life and you move on.

    If my wife knew my son was taking money for no show jobs- she would get here a%s down to his apt and rip him a new a-hole. Why protect him for something he did wrong. My wife is hardcore. She would be the last person to contact the media or NCAA. She would tell my son to suck it up and stop making stupid mistakes.

    And you have a good woman...who obviously knows what it takes to raise a responsible person. I'm sure (it's obvious) that the two of you share the same views in regards to raising a child and teaching them how to become a respectable, responsible adult.

    I know my folks were the same way....they did not take it easy on me in the least. My wife is the same way....man...I'd almost feel sorry for my kids (to a small degree) because believe me...you do not want to get on her bad side!! The one thing that irritates my wife the most are excuses...because she doesn't want to hear it!! For her...there's only reasons...and when it comes to screwing up? You have a choice of 2: either you did, or you didn't!! Sounds kinda harsh?! Not really...it's reality!

    My mother would fight to the death for any of her children!! But I'll be damned if she'd take our defense and make excuses for us when we screwed up!!

    Yeah I marveled at my mother all the time!! She had bionic ears and could hear through lead walls!! You did not want to get on her bad side and if you made a bad decision...oh man you could forget it!!

    If I got paddled while at school....hell, that was the easy part. I would have rather died immediately afterwards rather than to face my mom and dad...because what came next couldn't even be compared to the schools punishment! No..it wasn't the schools fault for having that stupid rule. It was my fault. Period.

    And my mom and dad love me. Very much. And I love them very much...especially for teaching me the many many things they have taught me. Probably one of the most important things I learned from them is that in life you'll have many problems...which is in-evitable (sp?). What the most important thing is not those problems themselves...but how you handle them.

    I was lucky....fortunate, blessed...in so many ways...that I had parents who loved me enough that they didn't care whether or not I liked them. They didn't want to be my best friend. They weren't worried that when I was young, immature and certainly didn't know $hit about life yet when I'd say stupid things like 'I hate you' after being punished or disciplined....because in the end they knew it would pay off. They knew in the end that the bond and relationship they had with their children would go well beyond friendship.

    You can't be your childs best friend. My best friends would stick up for me no matter what I did. It's not the same.

    Sugar as a former SA at tOSU I can assure you that everyone of the TAT5 and the players involved in the jobs deal knew they were breaking the rules of the NCAA. Whether you or the players in question like the rules is really not up for discussion as they are they rules of the road and when we sign on the dotted line we are required to live by the rules. They pound into your head the fact that you are not allowed to take anything, sell anything, accept jobs without notifying the school first. When they took the jobs or traded uni's for tat's they knew they were breaking the rules of the NCAA and were therefore cheating. Someone who was brought up with high moral value would not have cheated in the first place.

    You are right the NCAA(top as you classify it) has made the rules and it is the SA responsibility to abide by them. I am personally embarrassed by the way our SA feel they have some entitlements due them. They are an embarrassment to the school.

    This post should be a sticky.

  • I'm really surprised that all of you are such shills for the NCAA after we have been screwed over so badly.

    Elevating "the rule's a rule" thinking to the apex of this discussion is small minded in my opinion. None of us are happy with the bad choices Posey made, but is it too much to ask that you at least stop acting like he's OJ and target some of your anger and hostilities toward the NCAA?

    I'm not sure why you think " the rule's a rule " is small minded. Rules are a fact of life, we all have to abide by certain rules/laws. Yes, they may be stupid rules but we all have to follow them or we suffer consequences.

    I can't stand the NCAA but these rules have been in place for many years so it's not like these players have been blindesided by the NCAA. I can't stand half the laws we have but is it fair for me to blame the government for a law that I broke, the answer is no.

    The reason I get so pissed at these players ( I can't speak for anyone else ) is because when they break the rules, it doesn't just effect them personally. The whole team is effected, look what has become of our program......it all started because some guys CHOSE to break the rules.
