Re: Ohio State Football 2013
When OSU fans say that, they are probably referring to the fact unlike some institutions, they don't have coaches going out and acquiescing to recruits and their runners soliciting $200,000 for services.
No OSU fan that I've ever seen thinks OSU is perfect. But compared to certain environments in the wild, wild South, that program should be in sainthood. Boosters are rampant everywhere... in Tuscaloosa, Auburn, Columbus, Gainesville, etc. But the level of participation in the sleaze up North is elementary compared to what happens in the SEC, especially with regard to the coaches specifically.
