So happy to see a member of Buckeye Nation tweeted at him. That will surely help him make his decision.

The current thin white stripes on the shoulder is too close to Wisconsin and Nebraska. Thats my opinion. Plus, the fat gray stripes were worn during my formative years and for the last 3 national championships. Enough said.

He says that there are games that casual fans will watch throughout the country and he names Auburn-Alabama and  Ohio State vs Michigan State as examples.

Was it Minnesota where he seemed to just give up on one of those routes?

It's possible, I think there was one fly route where he gave up and the ball ended up intercepted because of it. I also remember a fly route down the sideline against Alabama where he had a step but he just dropped the ball. It happened a couple more times against VT.

And yet I can't be outraged by this development the way so many seem to be.

 For whatever reason, they're comfortable with this, and they're framing it as a Christian school giving a disgraced but changed man a second chance while forgiving him for his sins, ugly and public as they may be. For the 47th time, I don't get it. Makes no sense to me. But if the school is cool with it, I don't know that I can genuinely tell you I believe this is the worst thing in the history of bad things.
But, if you think about it, the reason Bliss did that is the same reason Bruce Pearl lied about a cookout at his home, the same reason Donnie Tyndall deleted presumably incriminating emails at Southern Miss, the same reason any of us lie or deceive when we lie and deceive. Bliss was focused on self-preservation and nothing but self-preservation, and it's amazing what people sometimes do in the name of self-preservation.

I doubt "permanent" but maybe in the mix as an alternate (I hope). I'd love to go back to those full time.

I've only gotten to play Scarlet once since Jack did the update. I love everything he did except the new 4th hole. Mainly just the green, it's really severe and seems out of character with the rest of the course. It may have something to do with the triple bogey I made while still shooting 79 lol.
