    Yeah and everyone is a comedian.

    The original comment stands. Shut the fuck up. You are owed absolutely NOTHING.

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    Yeah. FOIA is an overreach for a problem regarding depth charts.

    I don't know what the problem is with Miller and Wypler's play makes the question moot.

    The point is an old one with regard to public relations. Most of my journalism training took place in the army at something called Defense Information Officer School and the advice we were instructed to push to commander's was to get out in front of the story, "maximum disclosure, minimum delay." Maximum does not mean you tell everything you know, but what you can safely say. Minimum delay is just that, get your version of the story out there before the rumor brigade develops theirs.

    As a coach you want the story to be yours, not the press's and the rumor machine. "We're just as anxious as you are to see Miller out there, but he's been dinged up and it's taking longer than we expected for him to be ready to go. In the mean time, Wypler has played well." Or, "Harry had some personnel issues he needed to deal with. We're working with him and trying to help him solve them. He's a valuable asset to this team. In the meantime, Wypler..." Simple, to the point, most of the media will go along with it and the question diminishes.

    The questions regarding Miller began with the first game and continue because Day has not addressed the issue. His choice is much like that of many coach's, stonewall it. He can do that, but then the story becomes Day v Media. In my opinion, it's better to get your story out first, but I'm not Ryan Day.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Fanbase? Perhaps. But it's the media's job to look into it. I know that some think the Ohio (and even the national) media should essentially act like an arm of the SID's office, but that ain't real life. Day knew what he was getting into when he took a big boy job under the national spotlight. He needs to learn how to deal with it.

    MaxBuck SoCal, Baby!

    In what way has Coach Day not "learned to deal with it?" Seems to me all the people who are frustrated with his finessing the situation are the ones who need to "deal with it."

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    Tressel tried to finesse the free tattoos. Meyer tried to finesse the shitbrick problem. Both arrogantly thought they were above it all, answered to no one and could control what they felt people needed to know and if necessary lie about it, and both ultimately put themselves in the position where the university had to gut them. I'd hate to see Day start adopting that attitude.

    Now, don't get me wrong, an injury or depth chart issue isn't remotely in the same league as the above cases, and Day is probably not doing anything too terribly wrong if at all in this case. It's just that, after being forced to run off the last two Hall Of Fame coaches, I'd be a little more comfortable with a little more transparency.

    So yes, I'm entitled to next to nothing. But as an invested constituent of the university, I am entitled to an opinion when I think things might be starting down a bad noted above, nothing major yet........just a bad feeling--backed by recent experience--of where this kind of attitude can lead.
