Gene Smith is a moron. An absolute 100% buffoon. The worst AD in OSU history. An empty suit. These were my feelings when he uncermoniously dumped Tressel back in May. And over time my feelings "evolved". Maybe he had a plan? Maybe the Urban Meyer thing was part of his strategy? Maybe things that appeared random were part of some grand order of things--with Smith pulling the strings??Any thoughts of that went out the window today. You CAN'T accept a bowl invite---coming off a 6-6 season---unless you KNOW that the NCAA isn't going to hit you with a bowl ban. IMPOSSIBLE. Can't be done. You don't go to a game that the players, fans, media, and world doesn't care about unless you are SURE there are no ramifications.I speculated that Gene Smith was smarter than a tree sloth. I was wrong. Even a tree sloth would have managed to bleet out the words "must self impose bowl ban" if he had ANY chance of that occuring.OSU was a lamb led to slaughter by this guy--and the only thing that I can say to his credit, is that he had the good sense to stay away from the basketball game and the introduction of Bobby Knight at halftime.Smith's ONE saving grace was to be his relationship with the NCAA--that was an illusion--a sham---it never existed, and doesn't exist.Now we are in this NCAA bizzaro world where the "innocents" are punished----does that make any sense to anyone???I wish nothing but bad things to happen to the Oregon's, Penn State's and Miami's of the world--and anyone else falling into the NCAA spotlight. If THIS is the punishment you get for OSU's "trangressions" , then those fanbases should be scared to death about what is going to fall on their heads. I don't care anymore---let them all get creamed---its about self preservation at this point, as I truly feel like their is little justice left in the world.The punishment levied on Ohio State breaks from NCAA precedent, is over reaching, and unfair. I would appeal and fight it to the end, but that's just my nature. You confront injustice, and this is unjust.At the end of the day, thank god we have Urban Meyer. He will hold this 2012 class together--and 2013 is really unaffected, and I have a feeling that he will be even more relentless. I know more about Meyer's reaction to this annoucement today and clearly his public statement is not totally aligned with his private sentiment. But it is what it is---he is a Buckeye--he is pot committed--all in---so we go on from here.Bad day all the way around---and I am in a foul mood. Nothing good comes out of this--and I feel bad for the juniors who are taking this squarely on the chin. They deserve better---they deserve and have earned our support. Gene Smith should tender his resignation --tonight. Stop torturing the school that has done nothing but pay you big money while you administered over the biggest blunder in University history. I was a damn fool for believing you had this handled. Shame on me, and shame on you.

It means that tOSU will not be giving scholarships to hardworking senior walkons for a couple of years and it means that tOSU will probably not be offering any 3* projects or under the RADAR guys. We have done well with some of those guys in the past, but you have to make the most of your available scholarships.
