The media bought the sweater vest brand and they'll highlight Meyer's off the field issues. That's the point. Are OSU fans fine with seeing their dirty laundry drying on ESPN?
But it is surprising to hear OSU fans suggest they've never heard the "OSU does it the right way" schitck before. There is zero straw in any of that.
Meyer spent time in media days addressing this specific issue-off the field stuff. This has become an issue that has to be talked about at press conferences and is going to be talked about alot with alot more scrutiny. One can try to take jabs at the messenger but it's not my concocted message. The media is adopting a narrative-and it's an easy one since it's been part of Meyer's "brand" for years"-call them intolerable. Are OSU fans willing to tolerate it if they get to see wins?
