Ohio State University has a Top 5 capacity stadium, a Top 5 student enrollment, a Top 5 fan base and evidently a Top 5 group of bitchers, moaners and complainers. I say this even though I am a life-long OSU fan.

God have mercy on your soul if you see things a bit different than some OSU fans. Like I said before, I'm a Buckeye fan, but I don't walk around with Buckeye blinders or Big 10 blinders on.

Could there ever be a time that you might be wrong about your beliefs? Just once?

I wrote an article declaring that I'm not a fan of Terrelle Pryor. Of course I was ridiculed, called an embarrassment and accused of not being a Buckeye fan just because I didn't see things their way. Grow up and realize that your opinion is not always right.

The point I was trying to convey was my belief that Todd Boeckman was benched before the Big 10 season even started in 2008. Even though he was a SR and returning Big 10 Offensive player of the year. Todd deserved better. Many fans disagree with me about that, but what makes your opinion right and mine wrong?

Tressel sacrificed the 2008 season after the loss to USC. Like it or not, the Terrelle Pryor era had begun at Ohio State. Will it payoff down the road?, probably. Was it fair to Boeckman, Hartline, Robiskie or any of the other seniors?, I don't think so.

You have your opinions and I have mine about Buckeye football. Opinions are not facts and just because a fan doesn't agree with you that doesn't mean his opinion is wrong.
