I feel this is as good a time as any to share this PM I got right after the incident, after I went OFF on Klein about hitting a woman.
Even OSU fans were admitting Klein hit the girl. Hiding behind the "well, she refused to press charges" line is a joke. The girl's probably smart enough to realize how miserable her life would be in Ohio in the future if she was responsible for getting OSU's starting MLB kicked off the team.
and once again M is the only B1G team that has a convicted felon on their roster...and lets not forget your kicker's sexual assault allegation that was later dropped when he was a freshman...
I think it's hilarious that you have to bring up stuff from multiple years ago, because you don't have anything more recent.
Dude... Come on. We're talking about sufficient discipline not lack of mistakes. Our punter has been suspended for the ENTIRE YEAR just because he was smoking weed. Don't play this game. You'll lose.
Note, he had to go back two years to get even an accusation of a crime against another person.
We have to go back, like...a whole two weeks?
If you could get your hands on Frank Clark's record, you won't find a conviction for any felony.
Go ahead. I'll wait.
To be fair, the way he planted Brax into the turf at the Shoe last year he probably could have been charged with aggravated assault and battery.
Frank Clark did seem to get off pretty easy in my opinion, but severity of punishment is also not really the issue to me.
The important questions are what sort of environment are the coaches promoting and do they have control over the behavior of their team.
I think the differences between the two coaches personalities and approaches are and will continue to manifest in off-the-field discipline issues.
BOOM....sweet dose of murda for ya
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
"Weiner wouldn't discuss the case, but did say among the errors were reports that the victim was knocked out and that Hyde never touched the woman."
Ok, so she wasn't knocked out, but Hyde did somehow contact her. I still want to see the video.
To me this shows that Hyde touched her in some way, either slapped her or accidently hit her when responding to her actions. If he meant to strike her he will get suspended somewhere from 4-8 games if he didn't mean to it will probably be 2 games. I think because of how the media handled this story Hyde will get a bigger punishment than is warranted and maybe because of who his coach is and the media microscope may become an example.
So you think that 4-8 game suspension, if he did intend to hit her, is a bigger punishment than warranted?
i meant it more for the if he didn't intend to. If she swung and hit him in the head and he turned around and pushed her away or something of that nature it is hard to argue against him. if he meant to do harm to her that is different. If he intended to slap her in response to being hit when not even facing her, 8 games should be the max, IMO, and losing the whole season would be extreme to me. This is all assuming he has no prior history.
Edit: No matter what Hyde will face more scrutiny because his Coach is Meyer than he would have if Meyer wasn't his coach and that could lead to more of a suspension then is deserved, unless he meant to completly harm her then dismissal is deserved.

If Hyde intentionally hit a chick in a bar and he is going to be back just in time for the B10 opener against Wisconsin, Urbie needs to take down the sign that talks about zero tolerance for violence against women. Because he has turned the sign into a joke.
I never thought he took that sign seriously in the first place.
That sign is only up there for recruit's parents.
It goes along with the other silly signs that include the fake 40 times and the academic prowess of his walk ons.
