Another question that could take years to answer is whether the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 may lie dormant in the body for years and spring back later in different form.

It wouldn’t be the first virus to behave that way. After a chicken pox infection, for instance, the herpes virus that causes the illness hides quietly for decades and often emerges as the painful affliction shingles. The virus that causes hepatitis B can sow the seeds of liver cancer years later. And in the months after the West African Ebola epidemic subsided in 2016, the virus responsible for that illness was found to have taken up residence in the vitreous fluid of some of its victims’ eyes, causing blindness or vision impairment in 40% of those affected.

Given SARS-CoV-2’s affinity for lung tissue, doctors quickly suspected that some recovered COVID-19 patients would sustain lasting damage to their lungs. In infections involving the coronavirus that cause severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), about one-third of recovered patients had lung impairment after three years, but those symptoms had largely cleared 15 years later. And researchers found that one-third of patients who suffered Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) had scarring of the lungs — fibrosis — that was probably permanent.

Rush - New World Man, verse 2:

He's got to make his own mistakes
And learn to mend the mess he makes
He's old enough to know what's right
And young enough not to choose it
He's noble enough to win the world
But weak enough to lose it
He's a new-world man

If you're a true Cleveland fan, you know that you are part of the Factory of Sadness with the rest of us ... it's never ending.

How much more important did the wings just become as a result of this change? Will this impact OSU recruiting and targets? Do you expect the HS game to implement the same changes at face off?

Comment 06 Aug 2020

Her, ahem, favorite Aunt and Uncle are OSU grads as well ... the family loyalty is strong to OSU.

The trail around Lake Louise and up to the Tea House is spectacular.
The Canadian Rockies in general are fantastic.

For Ohio, there's Hocking Hills (overcrowded during the summer) and all of the areas around there.

How about parts of the A.T. going up the east coast?

If this is true (I haven't checked to verify), it doesn't speak well to ​TTUN's player development, or the ability to recruit to fill the needs of their Off./Def. schemes.

Comment 11 Jun 2020

The game is on now. Anyone who thinks Day can snap his fingers and be as good as Meyer is wrong. He can apparently pay recruits as well as Meyer, but can he organize and develop the way Meyer did? We'll start finding out this year or next year.

Harbaugh is right; his team is a lot closer than most people think.

Delusional thinking at best.

It might be tough to get rid of a contract-heavy 4x B1G COY (2002, 2004, 2009, 2015). 
He's gone 162-104 (97-75 conf.), and has finished in the AP top 25 in 3 of the last 5 years.
