    While McHenry would be a great addition to any room, you guys do know that Barnett (the guy that just beat McHenry) has already committed to Wisconsin, right? Might be a glut of talent piling up at the lower weights if McHenry were to be interested.That would be a new problem for Bucky if it were to come to pass. And too, when ticking off the litany of coaches now at WI, don't forget McDonough if you are thinking about the little guys.

    Honestly TBar, I think your continued participation helps my arguments. Keep on truckin' buddy.

    BS. You are truly full of it or you can't read...which is a distinct possibility. Go back and look at the post I made on this issue and tell me that my paraphrasing of what it said is wrong/inaccurate. Your recollection as to what was said is flawed.

    Oh geezzz TBar, that is an out-and-out falsehood. What I said, paraphrasing (and go cut and paste if you don't remember it correctly), is that you should stop telling people to not focus on Jordan simply because you think sexual abuse is a bigger topic deserving of more attention. I suggested you start a new thread with Sexual Abuse as the topic if that is what you felt is important. Don't make such a silly claim - and you wonder why people aren't buyin' what you're selling?

    Moran transfers to Wisconsin

    I'm under the impression that he has two years left - RS junior. Am I wrong on that one?

    2018 Head Coach Changes

    I'm sorry, what does "completing the circle" in this case mean? Did I miss something?

    Was this before or after Hellickson got him on the phone and told him that he could change his story?

    Is it really prejudice to presume that an assistant coach would know what the head coach knows in a situation such as this? Really? Is this something that you think Hellickson would NOT have shared with the coaching staff? The assumption that the head coach would share this kind of information with the assistants is what you would call prejudice? I hope you respond.

    On the part of many, there is a supposition in place that he lied - indeed there is no evidence but, other than the supposition that all of tOSU's wrestling coaching staff would have been aware of a situation such as this, he lied. If one can accept that many believe that he lied, which I think is a fair assumption, then there is no contradiction. You are right to see that there is a difference from the perspective of posters and other politicians. I don't disagree that there are any number of politicians that will endeavor to leverage this situation against Jordan - and that is sad on multiple levels. First, it is a ridiculous thing for an assistant coach to get called on the carpet for after 30 years (and I still haven't seen that happen in any new reports I've seen). Second, it was an unnecessary lie to tell (and yes, there is no evidence of a lie - just common sense piecing together a puzzle); Hellickson handled his statement well - Jordan did not. Third, if political enemies chew on this bone it is simply weak. As someone early in the thread said, "He's a politician - he's obligated to lie" (or something to that effect). As lies go, this was a pretty timid and innocuous one - why waste a good lie on something as trivial as this? So yes, Jordan has to defend himself from his political enemies, but he has previously done the same to his own enemies - he has been downright nasty on occasion. That doesn't mean posters have to swallow the bile politicians spew - some common sense goes a long way. Geeezzz, I hope that perspective doesn't make me a commie rat, an alt rightist, or a liberal turd. It has nothing to do with my political beliefs but rather, it just makes common sense.

    I have supported all of my positions, you simply refuse to accept them - nothing else left to say. Hope you are successful in wiping out yellow journalism.

    While Clinton's impeachment was little more than a slap on the wrist, no one on this thread has asked for Jordan to do anything more than acknowledge his lie. Nobody has cried impeachment or even any other penalties - absolutely nothing. At worst, the most he is being accused of is lying. Nobody (that I have read on this thread) has suggested that Jordan was the one at fault for inaction 30 years ago. And that's just it, had he not lied to begin with this would be a non-story (contrary to what some would believe). Its the lie, not the lack of action 30 years ago. And absolutely yes, there is no evidence that Jordan lied, just a trail of crumbs suggesting that how could he not know. That said, as you acknowledged, a lack of evidence (as in the case of Strauss) does not preclude people from forming hard and fast opinions. Why are people indignant when people form such opinions of Jordan but not when they consider Strauss? The answer is that people believe what they want to believe; and the myopic ones can't see the that they exhibit the same bias as those they attack.
