Why was my post about Gerry and JC on Bill King's show deleted?
I meant no disrespect to Gerry or JC.
It was just a personal observation.
you voted for Obama..
you should not be mad about this iyam.
3 time POTW, member since 2006, MLWTI: 4-3
Insulting and inaccurate. You can qualify it all you want but your point was to claim some stupid notion of southern bias because we were put on the spot by a caller who had some specific needle-in-the-haystack questions about prospects. The question, as I heard it, wasn't about Toledo in general, it was about 1-2 schools that we had never heard of and we tried to cover with general Toledo questions.
The Louisiana question that followed, we were more prepared for. Had they said something about Northern Ohio, then the map in the mind would have functioned better. The answers we gave had nothing to do with geography. We put more resources in to the Big Ten region than anybody else that covers college football recruiting and yet because we aren't from that part of the country, our credibility is attacked over a left field question on a radio show.
Not going to happen here, sorry.

Wouldn't expect anything less from an obnoxious idiot like devidee.
Not at all the way it was intended. You really took that the wrong way.
I simply think it's natural for somone to be more in tune to an area they are familiar with. I don't think there is a bias. Certainly not an intentional or malicious one.
I instantly thought of both Kizer and Thompson. Why? Probably because I'm from Ohio.

If that's the case, you didn't mention ANY Toledo recruits or northwest Ohio recruits in your answer.
Gerry mentioned several 2014 prospects from Whitmer. I didn't.
I didn't hear that.
I heard you guys trying to think of Kenny Hayes' name. That was it. Hayes came out of Whitmer two years ago.
Damn he was asked about prospects out of a couple of HS and named at least one or so off the top of his head. He was asked about a whole region of a state and he named a few more. Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm guessing there are a more recruits in a whole region compared to a couple of HS. How big are these HS?
Jayme Thompson is ranked in the top 247 for 2013.
DeShone Kizer is ranked in the top 247 for 2014.
Both play for Toledo Central Catholic. One of the specific schools the caller asked about.
Neither of these prospects was named by JC or Gerry.

Devidee hates the south and SEC more than anyone.. %75 of his threads are bashing the south and SEC. Now a staff member calls you out and you backtrack. Get over it, it's obvious you insulted them with your past actions/posts about the south.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
I haven't backtracked at all.
It was an honest observation. I don't apologize for it. I do apologize for the way it was taken.
During this emotional time I'm going to reflect on a much happier time during the JC - devidee relationship...
the distance between you two makes me wonder if he really wanted to take that pic with you
I have my hand dug into his shoulder for a reason, brah.
I know a photoshop when I see one, your hand was definitely holding a gun in the original.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
The shocking thing is that you are that old and still live in your mother's basement.
It's all good. There's just no bias here. Hate the SEC all you want, I don't care. Hate the Big Ten, I don't care. Just leave us out of it and don't assume we hate or love one or the other. We try to call it like we see it.
Again, that wasn't my intent.
I didn't listen to the interview nor have a stake in this, but I will say that one of the things I really like about this site are the open discussions. Deleting posts without an explanation is quite a turn-off (and reminiscent of bad sites)..maybe I am spoiled, because the uva 247 admin is awesome, but just sayin
Good to see how defensive and butthurt JC got. It's your job. To quote Urban Meyer, "do it a little harder".
And then to come on and here and throw a hissy fit is weak sauce. You named Bill Price for players from Toledo? Yikes. You haven't ever heard of Toledo Central Catholic? Seems hard to believe considering you have a 2013 player ranked in the top 247 as well as a 2014 player.
This wouldn't really bother me if you didn't shut down a thread and then get all defensive. It certainly rubs me the wrong way.

Maybe you are just a baby?
The guy is on radio and gets a TOLEDO question. Give me a break.
We need another thug like Tyson ... Badly
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
This thread has been answered and there is no more need for it. I'm locking it.
