Those Biden ads aren't wrong tho. If we had leadership like in Europe or Asia we would have no question about having college football as regularly scheduled

Not really man, I have thick skin and I'm not easily offended, i'm just looking out for those more vulnerable closeted people trying to come to terms with their sexuality. have a great day, wear a mask, and work on those trolling skills!

I understand it's meant to be a joke but it's still hateful rhetoric. It's similar to using gay as stupid. Most people these days don't mean it as an insult to gays, but to someone who's closeted it can still do damage

Can people stop pretending sports exist in a vacuum? Do people forget that the people playing in these sports are affected by politics? About 70% of the NFL and NBA are made up of black athletes. Stop cheering for them when they score a touchdown if you're going to be racist and unsupportive the minute you leave the stadium. 

If you want to take politics out of sports, how about removing the national anthem from the start of games? How about stopping any association with military? How about stopping the recognition of political figures at sporting events or having them throw the first pitch? You can't have it both ways.

A lot of people coming here to complain about wanting to keep this kind of content off the site have that privilege to escape politics and watch sports. Once the black athletes finish playing in those games, they can't go on a run without worrying about being the next Ahmaud Arbery. They can't sleep completely peacefully at night out of fear for being the next Breonna Taylor. They might feel scared to wear the hood on their hoodie so they don't get shot walking through their neighborhood like Trayvon Martin.

And lastly, to the people saying All Lives Matter, I'll leave you with this quote: "If my wife comes to me in obvious pain and asks "Do you love me?", an answer of "I love everyone" would be truthful, but also hurtful and cruel in the moment. If a co-worker comes to me upset and says "My father just died," a response of "Everyone's parents die," would be truthful, but hurtful and cruel in the moment. So when a friend speaks up in a time of obvious pain and hurt and says "Black lives matter," a response of "All lives matter," is truthful. But it's hurtful and cruel in the moment."

Who are a couple of recruits no one talks about that could realistically be a part of this class? Kurelic on 247 always mentions Kary Vincent but is there anyone else?

People forget so quickly that Baylor and TCU only had one loss but no conference championship. Baylor's was to #3 TCU, might as well be the #1 team. It is a longshot, but it would require two of: a three loss PAC12 or SEC champ or a two loss ACC champ.

I think you should analyze teams each year rather than just Ohio State. I haven't done any kind of research, but I would guess there is almost no correlation between All-American players at certain positions and national championship teams. Almost every position on a championship team is top 10 in the country, fluctuating from 1-10. A certain player on the national championship team could be one of the best QBs in the league's history (JT Barrett) but not be an All-American that year due to another school having one of the best QB's in CFB history.

I'm sure this comment won't be received kindly, but I'm sure I can't be the only one with this opinion, not willing to submit it due to probable down votes. I'm not really a fan of the Cupp offer, not because we're "full" on OL, but rather that we're in on so many talented skill guys to finish off the class on top of a DL. I trust Urban Meyer and I believe Cupp got the offer because he's an Ohio State caliber player, but I would've just rather seen the scholarship used for a different position. 

Hopefully this just means that Urban is aware of more early entries and attrition than we are really thinking. Either way, I assume I'll be welcoming Cupp to the family soon and I hold nothing against him as a player.
