I don't really agree with that attitude but I think that's why many OSU fans have a bone to pick with them.
I've been hearing the "ESPN hates OSU" talk for years, going back well into the Cooper days.
As far as sanctions go, remember, it was in question whether OSU would be allowed to play in the NCAA's this past year, to the point the Thad's recruits had out-clauses. Also, I can recommend you a story about Tress at Youngstown State that might make you think differently. WE don't hope for it (I did go to school there for one year) , we just know its true.
