Weekly updates and miscellany from around the world of college sports…
“To be able to lead, you have to serve first,” Posey said. “I feel like being on scout team, helping the younger guys and being in the meeting room and telling them the little tips that I have allowed me to understand the game more and it humbled me as well. That’s what I needed going into this process and going to the next level. Through this process, everything you hear is what you can’t do and everyone’s tearing you down. Going through the draft, you’re going to hear a lot of negative things and then, when you get into camp as well, you have to be humble as well. You have to serve the team and show them you can play. I felt like I learned all those lessons this past year.”
“Every day at practice was a challenge, so I definitely think that will pay dividends,” Brewster said of Ohio State. “It really comes in the preparation the last couple weeks and really, four years of college. Now, it’s just show time and it’s time to go out there and do it. Anytime you get a chance to go against the best, you want to measure yourself.”
UPDATE- We’ve put all of this information into a table for those who prefer getting their information that way (and read USA Today). Check it out here, or under the Media Table at the top right of the site.
We’ll also work to update it as necessary, should more evidence emerge either supporting or refuting these concerns.
Update 2 – It has come to our attention that not all of the information presented was sourced properly. The article has been modified to be more clear.
It’s been a hectic couple of months to be a Buckeye fan. The first half of the year has felt like every media organization in the nation, including our own home base news sources, have been giving our favorite university the third degree.
One constant in these media investigations is that the national news sources never return to the scene of the crime to report on what they got right and what they got wrong. To be honest, who really cares? People love dirty laundry, after all.
So we here at the BBC have decided to compile a list of every allegation leveled at Ohio State University and its Football Program in the last couple months. Of course, this idea may seem familiar to you. Admittedly, the Ozone (and seemingly everyone else) beat us to the punch, but we thought we could be more thorough.
We are going to do a blow by blow account of everything anyone said or suggested about OSU, as a resource for you when these things take on a life of their own. We’ll also give you the information regarding which of these have been refuted, so you can refer back as you’re bringing truth to the water-coolers around the country.
The time frames reference when we learned about the accusation, not when the violation (or accused violation) occurred. Also, anything after “Effect” on each point is writers opinion only, and not to be taken as fact unless linked as such. Read More
