I really, really dislike Clemson, but you must give those guys their due. Lawrence's faking and smooth control of the offense and the playcalling are some of the best I have ever seen. The defense is rarely out of position or fooled. GT wasn't much of a speed bump, but Clemson was very impressive. Another test between the Bucks and them would be epic.

I think you are exactly right. Alabama, Clemson, and OSU are the outliers for the last 10 -12 years. and it appears that situation is not going to end anytime soon.  Michigan's real problem is their absolute rival is one of these three. Michigan compared to the rest of college football is at least competitive. Sounds like they have resigned themselves to that fact.

Turned 70 in July. Seems like Father Time is catching up with me and everything I loved when I was young.

I wonder what will happen in Germany after OctoberFest. 600,000 people a day, 10,000 people jammed together in 22 beer halls, and it's tough to drink beer through a mask. If the Germans cancel OctoberFest, we'll know they are serious.

Other than signing with an agent, can someone explain to me what these guys are going to be doing over the next 3 months that's different than what they would be doing if they waited a couple weeks and played an abbreviated season. The Draft is 8 months away. The avoiding injury doesn't make sense. If the season had started on time, they'd have been playing and subject to injury. How are they going to be working out and getting any better somewhere else than at the Woody with their coaches? I can see why they would pull the plug if a meaningless season started in late November or Spring, but going now, after waiting this mess out this long makes no sense.

I have tried to watch a few of the games on TV so far, but have not been able to get interested. NFL starts this week. Meh. Maybe when the bigger schools start this weekend, I can get back on the horse, but this whole process may have ruined football for me for good. Anybody else feel this way?

Football starts Saturday night. Going through mental gymnastics like this to give the season being stolen from the players, coaches and fans only pisses me off more. Football starts Saturday night with or without Ohio State, the Big 10, and Kevin Warren. If games proceed through September, there should be peaceful protesters with torches and pitchforks outside the Big 10 offices in Chicago and Warrens home in Minnesota. https://saturdaytradition.com/big-ten-football/first-division-i-college-football-game-of-2020-is-scheduled-for-saturday/?fbclid=IwAR2MJcMPY2Ind4mVvTtHJOarwF8RMKi85abpi0JKLfxdSJ4SobRr4kvx40s

I cannot begin to imagine how pissed off I'm going to be when I see college football on TV next week, and no Buckeyes. Some people need to pay for this with their jobs.

Rationalization being the second strongest human drive, I believe it would be physically impossible for Warren to admit his mistake and revisit the decision. The higher up in an organization a person advances, the more difficult it becomes to admit a mistake. But conversely, I believe the farther one advances and assumes increased responsibility, the more important it becomes for a leader to admit a mistake.

I am feeling  the same way Lew-E. Eleven Warriors has been my first click just about every  morning for  going on 8 years, but that thrill is gone. I love OSU and OSU football and have for over 50 years, but this decision has really effected my outlook. Regardless of what else was going on in the world, the Buckeyes were always there to watch or think about.  At my age, losing a season is a big deal. I don't gt to just add on a season of eligibility. Who knows how many more there actually are in the pipeline?   Too old to start a new hobby, Oh well, I guess there is always politics. It has  good guys and bad guys too, so there is a good substitute for hating _ichigan. It could be looked at as a spectator sport if I really try. 

Comment 24 Aug 2020

Everytime I see another story,  I get more pissed off. Fire Warren.

Comment 24 Aug 2020

So at the end of the day, University Presidents are basically politicians. What exactly do they do? They are supposed to be CEOs that are tasked with building the business they guide for the good of the people they serve? Do they really do that or do they kiss babies (or other body parts), raise money, and try to convince us that they are smarter than we are. Their judgement is not to be questioned.  And yet the ones that work at public universities are public employees, they theoretically work for us. Why does it feel the other way around? 

Comment 24 Aug 2020

I doubt if the kind of people who seem to gravitate to the presidents positions in big, important schools give a hoot about football, or any other sport for that matter. It's dirty and sweaty and violent, success is based on merit, and they keep score so there are winners and losers. 

Comment 24 Aug 2020

It's still not to late to fix this. If everyone wants to play, why not fire the guy and go play? Everyone makes mistakes and hiring this bozo was definitely a mistake. So admit the mistake, fire him, and get on with life! Why are people who are supposed to be so smart so stupid? Whats so hard about that? 

Comment 21 Aug 2020

After reading the stories and comments today, it's pretty apparent most people have given up. I would think there would be 11 Warrior stories every day about efforts to get rid of Warren or put pressure on the powers that be to change a terrible, unnecessary decision. These are public institutions, funded by taxpayers. The people who run these schools are public employees, they work for us. There is still time to fix this, but it isn't going to have even a ghost of a chance if the public and the Media don't ratchet up the pressure. If the other conferences play and it's a success, it will take years for the Big 10 to recover.
