Off hand, does anyone happen to know how many words are in the English language? An exact number isn't all that important, I suppose, as I am simply trying to narrow down what kind of seemingly insurmountable odds that Ohio State managed to beat (no pun intended) by making one of the top 5 most tone-deaf options in the entire dictionary their hardly relevant motto on the heels of a silence-enabled scandal.
In fairness to the Buckeyes' marketing team, I have always said that complete silence was extremely important to a game with as many moving parts as football, and it's been made pretty damn clear that Ohio State cares nowhere near as much about anything else as it does its pigskin. In that sense, it would fit their problematic priorities pretty well to block out all the noise and mute an outside world that continues to implicate their head coach of pathologically lying about that one time he was medically induced into conveniently forgetting to speak up and fire the domestically abusive douchebag on his staff.
Of course, the victim might not take too kindly to the powerful program that was complicit in her continuing to fear for her life deciding to embrace the very same approach that got them in this whole mess in the first place. Luckily, you only have to listen to Urban Meyer creatively avoid saying the name 'Courtney Smith' but so many times before realizing that they don't give a shit what she thinks!
Domestic violence association, be damned! Silence for one, silence for all! We're nearing Saturday of Penn State (can't make it up) week and that means both schools need to shut up and focus on student-athletes sacrificing their brains and bodies for room and board!
