So play without fans then. I’m assuming by football season test kits would be more readily available. I wonder what the probability would be of testing players before games and playing in empty stadiums. How weird would that be to watch on tv? But at least people have something to watch and distract themselves with.

I get your point about them not being starters last year. These guys were young last year, though. Given the opportunity of another year to develop physically and mentally is a big deal. I believe DT’s will be better because I think guys like Togiai and Vincent have higher ceilings than hamilton and landers had.

I don’t like to throw out the “everyone better than us must be cheating” narrative because thats an itchagain thing. I get it when a guy like saban goes on a run at a place like bama. Established coaches doing elite things at places like FSU, Texas, Oklahoma, or ND is easy to understand. The story line of both dabo and clemson is  as different from what has been cfb for decades as it gets. We have a guy who wasn’t even in coaching in the early 2000’s at a place that failed to win 10 games in a season from 1991-2010. Now, they are the class of college football and everyone is chasing them. Its one of two things, something you write a movie about or something you investigate.

Fair enough point about wiltfong and you may be right. Again, not saying i know where the kid is going but not trusting webb at this point. People are always going to react when a kid commits. That doesnt mean another recruitment is over. Sorry if that interferes with your only pro michigan news stance.

Comment 21 Mar 2020

Im not being blinded by anything. I really dont care which team the kid picks. It would be nice if he chose osu but i could understand why he stays home too. Im just not going to trust a michigan recruiting guy who admits he is going off of nothing but a gut feeling. It was nothing the kid, his family, or his hs coaching staff said. That doesn’t sound like somebody who is “locked  in” it sounds like a guy hoping he is right. I think you’re the one wearing maize and blue glasses here.

Comment 19 Mar 2020

Oh no! so a michigan recruiting insider has a strong gut feeling. Welp I guess scratch Edwards then. Oh but wait... I have a strong gut feeling he’ll choose OSU. What do we do now?

Comment 16 Mar 2020

If ttun is offering a guy like fickell 5 mil a year, so are other teams. Everybody is acting like tun would be his only option to jump up to major power five ball.

Comment 13 Mar 2020

That 100,000 is an estimate for ohio. The official worldwide numbers are only confirmed cases. My understanding is that there are more than likely a significant amount of more cases that havnt been confirmed. Many infected either never showed symptoms or were so mild they treated it like the common cold and never went to the doctor. 

Comment 24 Feb 2020

Looking at this schedule, it seems to boil down to four games. At Oregon September 12th, vs Iowa October 10th, at PSU October 24th, and vs tun November 28th. MSU is a dumpster fire and will struggle to be any sort of relevant program. Everybody else is in the same boat. Even Iowa is a stretch since they are only good at home. 

There are no back to back elite games like in years past. Even still, there are just enough elite opponents to make the sos strong and give the team the needed challenge to prepare for a possible playoff run.

Even if teams like Nebraska or Illinois make a jump, I don't see it being near big enough to beat this team.

Comment 11 Feb 2020

I agree about the overreactions from some of these writers. I remember being frustrated with last summers doom and gloom about the running back situation. Had a returning starter with back to back 1,000 yard seasons and three former four stars behind him. Would not have known that with how RBs were being written about. Now, it looks like it’ll be NPF in their crosshairs. He’ll end up starting at RT and probably having an All B1G level season as so many other 3rd/4th year lineman have at this program.

Comment 09 Feb 2020

Maybe not this year but it depends on what cincy does with the vacancy. If they place interim on someone for the 2020 season, they could come after coombs in December. 

Comment 06 Feb 2020

Hard to close the book on a young back who didn’t have a great game, as a back up, in a championship setting. Running the ball well against great defenses has a lot to do with rhythm. Its hard to get into rhythm coming off of the bench. Especially in a tight back and forth game.

Comment 06 Feb 2020

Teague won’t be what Dobbins was in 2020 and shouldn’t be expected to be. With that said, the buckeyes shouldn’t need that type of production from they’re starting running back. The passing attack should be epic with Fields being in his second year, this offensive line, and the receiver group. All of that could help take a lot of pressure off of Teague and I think he’ll end up having a real solid year.

Comment 06 Feb 2020

ACC teams can’t but teams clemson will have to play in the playoffs will be able to. The ACC does Clemson no favors with prepping them to play in the playoffs. Also, I don’t think you need nfl guys to beat Lawrence. The blueprint is just being extremely physical against their offense. They look very uncomfortable against anyone who does that to them.

Comment 06 Feb 2020

His hot take about oregon winning isnt really that outrageous. They’ll be a top ten and maybe top five team playing at home and probably at night. Oregon is a much different culture than the last two times the Buckeyes faced them. They are more physical and much better on defense. I still think the Bucks win but I wouldn’t be shocked if it was the Ducks.

Also, with ND, clemson will likely run them off the field.

Comment 04 Feb 2020

Late to the party but great point. There is in fact violence and bad booze that pops up down there. I would never suggest someone “experience” Mexico by being out and about throughout the communities and away from the resorts. If someone is familiar with the culture and whats going on in the area, then cool. If you’re not, its a bad idea. 

I would also consider getting travel health insurance. Last time I was there, I got very ill. Medical care can be scary when you don’t know what they want to treat you with or how much it may cost but you’re in another country and need care.
