by the way....to the original point....

people started coming here because they were NOT allowed to name call on bnuts.....someone could start an idiotic post of "schnitker should be a tailback" and if anyone called the poster on it they were reprimanded...not the idiot who made the post....
I agree there is no point in argueing with someone if you get in trouble for calling them a Douchebag. Some people need that in their lives, and I am proud to say I am one of them. There is something very comforting to me in personal attacks. :)

True Madness Requires Significant Intelligence
As we always seem to, the paint chip party has hijacked another thread.

I am with scooter, do we discuss football here? I found BN a long time ago to follow recruiting, remember when Duane Long posted regularly? Pretty soon I came to realize that 18 year old kids wanted to be treated like royalty or rock stars in order to get a school to sign them. I like what BuckNutty does here and I still check in from time to time on the recruits we are pursuing.

During that time I found the message boards where there was some discussion of issues I was more interested in. I believe I saw Grad21 mention this board and I haven't left yet.

While there are definite personality clashes I think the mods do a good job of keeping a sense of order here.

While I appreciate your concern NJ, I would also hope that the players, recruits, and families realize this board is in no way officially connected to The Ohio State University. We are just fans, who seem to live and die with a football team made up of very young men. I think they realize that and I imagine they see the same things on other boards although I will admit I only know of one other board that has as many members that actively post this much and it is a hacker site.

It would be very interesting to see how many posters here actually played high school or college football and how many have any real coaching experience. To give credibility to someones post would require me to know more about them than their screen name and avatar. Through discussions we have developed a community which can be difficult to judge accurately at first read. Let's hope no one made a decision based on LHM's posts.

    Excellent point.. but I don't think it would be unreasonable to assume that a recruit could be 'pursuaded' AWAY from OSU based on what he could read here.. Implicitly, whether we like it or not, this site has real impact capability... If any members are not convinced, go to Google and type in some recruit's name... and damn if BP doesn't pop up...with a direct link to the exact BP posting...

    That reader, whether player, recruit or family doesn't know the connection or disconnection... but they know the focus... I'm not advocating not being fanatical but just to concur with another poster who said it pretty well.. don't be so quick on the submit button... little respect can go a long way...
