  • SPORTS MOMENT: In the park grand slam HR in the 7th inning to advance to the championship of the Dublin, Ohio Tuesday night Co-Rec Softball League (2004).

    Oh, you mean best "actual" sports moment? Storming the field after Will Allen's interception on the end line with 0:01 remaining on the clock to beat Michigan and advance to the National Championship (November 23, 2002). Best moment ever.

He’s a man, and made a decision, and I respect it.

If I was in Wade or Davis’ shoes I would like to think the decision to return was primarily about winning a championship this year, with the added benefit of maybe improving my draft position slightly. But with each week Clemson, Alabama, and a handful of other contenders get to play and the Buckeyes don’t, the odds of being able to compete in those playoff games diminishes. Add to that seeing your brothers making plays in the NFL and competing for championships at the next level - the decision to begin preparing your body as a professional for the next level totally makes sense to me.

I am hard pressed to see a scenario in which 6 presidents that voted “no” change their votes to being in favor of playing this fall, and subsequently all 14 teams in the B1G playing. Wouldn’t it be within the realm of possibility that the B1G members vote to temporarily amend the bylaws to let the 3 (or however many) teams that have the means and the ability to play safely go out and play? Wouldn’t that be a reasonable approach that benefits the association as a whole? I find it surprising no one is talking about this.

It seems like no one is discussing the possibility that the B1G presidents might have a re-vote and still have a 60% majority vote against playing. I am of the opinion Ohio State should be seeking a legal injunction allowing them to break away from the B1G for this season and seek to schedule games with any willing partners - whether they are in the B1G or not. Let Nebraska and Iowa (and whoever else votes to play) to do the same. There will still be money to be made together in future years as a conference. This is nuts.
