Am I happy that Hyde and Roby got into trouble? Absolutely not. But it appears as if Hyde never did anything wrong. A freshman getting caught with a fake ID and underage possession? Am I supposed to get upset over that? As a parent I would be mad at my child but my friends and I did the same thing at that age.
What is Meyer's baggage? Players who have gotten into trouble have been punished. More than anything else that is what I want. If you want to start listing every single NCAA college football player that gets into trouble go for it. But pointing out 4 OSU players and slamming the program because of that I have an issue with.
We'll get to revisit this question often with Meyer in Columbus. And that's the point. It's part of Meyer's brand. Are OSU fans comfortable with others being able to call them the Buckators and having the moniker ring with more than a little truth? It's a relevent question especially given the reverence there was for Tressell and the perception of how he ran his program and the disdain many OSU fans showed for how "SEC" teams run theirs.
You can chose to be offended and obfuscate the point but there seems to be a point here. Or can you argue it away with reasoned facts?

This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
