You and I agree 90 % of the time, and you're right, the whole system is rediculous (Rutgers?). And I guess winning is everything these days. But this was just a dumb classless move.
The bottom line, for me, is that I don't think the rule he lied about makes any sense, thus I don't have a real problem with him lying.
Morality is a fuzzy thing. And Ohio State included him because it was his team, and the fans in Columbus I'm sure overwhelmingly view him fondly and would have wanted him there. The ceremony wasn't for you, and it wasn't for the national media, it was for Ohio State and the fans here.
