Sensible campaign. Junior/Senior athletes need this season to make it to the next level and possibly make their future. Fans will always have the next year if this season gets Corona’d

If trainers attending athletes on the field don’t wear a mask will they throw a flag? Will replay booth intervene?

Just for argument and pls don't take this personally..can he sign with another team after his 1-3 years? Why would an NFL team owner spend time,resources and money to develop a kid then? Can he be cut if he doesn't live to the hype? Will he be practicing non-contact with grown men? What if he gets injured? Quite a few 5* are bust in college.

Comment 30 Apr 2020

As much as we want the kids to be compensated I hope this doesn't morph into something else.

1. If star QB makes $500k a year wonder if the OL will protect him dearly or intentionally let him take a hit once in a while?

2. If 5 semi-professionals players are getting paid wonder how the other 80 amateurs going to take it? Work harder or kiss up to the 5 so they can give a good word to their agents. Will the team play for their brothers like they claim?

3. Will opposing team players put extra mustard on their legit hits on your top earning players

4. Few players showing up in corvettes for practice

5. During games on TV they show top 5 earners from both teams.

6. Can the non-earning players borrow from the top earners to fly their GFs to a bowl game?

7. Will the refs treat the top earners favorably or the calls are gonna go against them? May be it will be irrelevant but it will surely come up during close calls.

California forced NCAA's hands so it remains to be seen how this plays out. The Sun will rise tomorrow..looking at you covid-19!

Shoot an apple off the ref’s head. The closest arrow wins. The booth ref can review and call it. Based on the call we can all guess the outcome of all the reviews henceforth.

2019. I can walk head high knowing our young men fought thru adversities and fell just a little short.

Comment 31 Dec 2019

Targeting by the rule? Yes. Ejection? No.
During a review any missed flags around the play should be fair game for review. Who knows if not for  the hands to the face CY gets to Lawrence before Wade.

Comment 30 Dec 2019

If i am going to be congratulating anyone that would be the booth ref. Thanks for deciding the outcome in your favor and robbing the opportunity off our hard fighting buckeyes in overcoming all their miscues. I can reluctantly take the targeting penalty but the ejection changed the course of the game.

Comment 29 Dec 2019

The review was implemented to correct the human errors on the field not to add controversies. “Indisputable evidence” is there to avoid any controversy and go with the call on the field. Some booth refs are thinking they are above the field refs and impacting the game.

Comment 29 Dec 2019

Just need to add 2 more to your list to complete it:
If Shawn Wade doesn’t get ejected we win
If Fuller TD doesn’t get overturned we win

Comment 29 Dec 2019

Lawrence was down holding his chest/shoulder and not his head. Booth ref either doesn’t have common sense or blatantly used that opportunity to give clemson an advantage. This is the same ref who was responsible for allowing time for Auburn to kick FG against Alabama just before half time.

Comment 29 Dec 2019

A catch is good if receiver completes 3 jumping jacks after possession without the ball becoming loose at any point.
