No they didn't. This story didn't even break until 2 days ago. Nobody has supported him after it came out that he was a pedophile
This isn't Bucknuts, don't come over here telling other posters to "lay off" or call them annoying.
Who cares who's fan base is bigger. That is impossible to prove unless you go door across the country. But I can tell you who can seat the most fans.....
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Pretty crazy story about that freek. Creepy.
Well this certainly explans Joey Bosas reluctance to leave OSU that day...he was right Ann Arbor can't apparently provide what Bucknuts Boosters can...#KARMA
I'd take UM Coach's integrity over having a rockstar as a coach anyday of the week. Too much drama. We've only hit the tip of the iceberg as far as UM reputation and coaches reputation having an effect on recruits. Word travels fast and the word is UM and staff is for real.
The guy isn't a booster...he was a random fan that tweeted at our players and recruits so much that they started to notice and like the guy until the pedophile thing came out
yea it is. Just embarrassing and unfortunate. I hate that he is no longer a part of our class but i would do the same thing. I am sure he is embarrassed his picture was taken with that clown.
Still not good for y'all. Just waiting for the meltdown
I’m not an expert on NCAA rules but to my understanding almost anyone with a connection to a university can be considered a booster now ah days.
And why would 17 and 18 year olds want to hang out with a creepy fat guy that stalks them on Twitter?
Because they are young and impressionable and the guy is apparently very manipulative and likable haha
The meltdown already happened on Bucknuts haha
Cause he buys their drinks and stuff. I was in Cbus for the game like 3 or 4 years ago when Pryor was a freshman and they had Laurinaitis. We ended up at a club where they were and they didn't pay for a drink all night. I met Laurinaitis and he said that is how it is every night. They are like celebrities...I'm sure thats how it is on every campus.
you are correct and technically if someone gives you a free drink, shirt, hot dog, or hell even a stick of gum they become a booster and it breaks NCAA rules.

Oh I’m sure it happens at almost every college town in America. Those are still improper benefits though.
There is a lot more to it. For one all these kids where drinking alcohol with a convicted sex offender from kentucky. I'm pretty sure it's been mentioned a few times anzalones parents didn't approve of his commit to OSU. I think even without this creep stalking recruits anzalone de commits in the long run regardless.
or maybe because he was giving them improper benefits (pause) and it was just the price to pay for hanging out with the creep.
Exactly this ^
I don't think it was anything more than drinks, if it even was that. My friend could have been completely mistaken when he saw those guys and thought that they were someone else, I don't know. I'm just going off of what he said. Also, I seriously doubt that this guy has money to spare to give to recruits. Once you've been convicted of downloading porn of little boys, there's no way you can get a job with a decent salary
