26.Jul.2012 Is There Anything Positive About OSU Athletics?
I woke up on the right side of the bed today. All the negativity around the athletic department–is it overblown? Are there things to be positive about?
I'll let the Pollyannas have their voice today.
My opinion: Overall trend is down, but there are pockets of positivity. In the football program, the fact we will likely never have sanctions, have a good QB and WR corp, have an improved O-line, and from what I hear, a good chef (/sarc) are all positives. I don't even feel comfortable mentioning the positives because they are all things that should be expected at this level. Some fans still think the expected are blessings, and therein lies much of the problem. It's always good to hear the other side, though, so as not to become too insular or myopic. Plus it's always good for a laugh. Have at it, Pollyannas.
