    I hope they lose the rest of their games.

    Ohio St. prez disregards TCU, Boise St.
    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Even if TCU and Boise State run the table, they still don't deserve to be in the Bowl Championship Series title game, Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee said Wednesday.

    Until you look at their schedule, they got 3 or 4 softies on that schedule like every other team in the BCS.

    The biggest fear of the BCS schools is if one of these teams is successful. They do not want non-BCS cartel schools getting a piece of the money pie.

    They don't want another Utah beating Alabama in Sugar Bowl or another Boise St. beating Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl.

    I want to see TCU beat the shit out of LSU and want to see Boise S. beat the shit out of Oregon.

    Boise has 9 softies, and TCU has 8 softies on their schedule. Big difference.

    Ohio State and her fans make me wanna do this all day long --- :kubepalm: :wadepalm: :strangle:. Kirk Herbwhatever and Chris Spielman were talking down on Michigan and now OSU's President amkes a stupid remark like this.

    I hope they get to the title game (unlikely, I know) because they sure know how to get beat down in the big one!

    Looks like the Ohio State president apologized for some of his comments:

    I wish he would have just stuck to his guns though.

    Not sure why it is Karma? Gee's opinions means the football program should be punished?

    It sounds like some one forgot to specifically tell the players not to sell stuff and they thought they found a loophole.

    So the 2011 season is a wash.

    So $1500 gets you 5 games and $200,000 gets you the Heisman?

    And we all know EVERY major school cheats - it's a matter of who gets caught when.

    Defend what? I want a playoff. Gee doesn't. I talked with him in person in October. When asked WHY - he really didn't give what I thought was a good reason. Paraphrasing - he thinks a playoff will make players be treated like star athletes and less like students - errr, that bridge was crossed how many tens of years ago?!

    I've got no issue with suspensions when they're warranted, but selling stuff that BELONGS TO YOU....WTF?

    While I think it's a stupid thing to do and shows a certain lack of respect, I still don't see why the NCAA has an issue with it.

    If they violated NCAA rules and are being suspended next year, why are they still eligible for this seasons bowl game (Sugar Bowl). Shouldn't suspensions be immediate? I guess they want to keep their star talent around for their big money games, big spotlight, biggest recruiting tool game. Such hypocrisy....

    I agree 100%.

    And I don't get how they can fine them...

    Had they already graduated, how in the world could they expect to re-coup money?

    If I were the athletes I'd talk to a lawyer...
