  • SPORTS MOMENT: I have two:

    1) Being on A Deck, 45 yard line, when Eddie George ran all over Notre Dame and the crowd started chanting "Ed-die, Ed-die, Ed-die!"

    2) Being in the Louisiana Superdome and mockingly chanting "S-E-C, S-E-C, S-EC!" when Ohio State beat Arkansas. It DID happen. I was THERE! You can wipe the record books, but not my memories.

“He has a tremendous approach and he’s humble, but deep inside, there’s a fiery, competitive dude in there who just tries to take your heart out when he’s in the game,”

Exactly like Day- calm exterior, stone cold killer on the inside. Also, I have a feeling Justin Fields has a secret desire to show up Trevor Lawrence, and can't wait to get a piece of Clemson.

I mean I like them all but for comparison look at the opening shot for the Maryland trailer alone. Or the Wisconsin one where CJ narrated.  Love getting the coach pump up speech, but this one was not creative by comparison. 

Bottom line: you know it's a good season when all you have to complain about are the relative strengths and weaknesses of the "pump up" trailers!

I agree and I don’t. Employees do make the company. But no company, no jobs. No opportunity. No money at all. The employees will be unemployed.

i mean, I get it. But I think your swinging that pendulum a little too far in the other direction. 

if all the players refuse to take the field, they will make quite the statement. They will also forfeit and not make the playoffs. That’s what would happen.

i am happy that Chase is taking responsibility. Fine young man. Silly lapse of judgement, but he is doing the right thing now. I doubt it will be a big suspension.

I tend to believe this strengthens the case for athletes profiting from their likeness. The same athletes most at risk from slimy agents stalking them would be the same ones that could legally profit the most from their likeness. This would take power away from agents  and the temptation to receive impermissible benefits greatly reduced. 

While much will be made about this nationally, Chase will unwittingly also be made a poster child for this cause. Spin it correctly and the NCAA will be on its heels.

Let me add some thoughts - are students now super soft or what?  We would sleep until 11PM or Midnight on Friday, go out, stay up all night and keep drinking/eat breakfast, go to the game, crash afterwards, and then party Saturday night. Toughen up, kids and plan better!

Also, I have heard that it is more difficult to keep the team focused and not too amped all day, rather than get up and go play @ noon. 

As far as the "money grab" - oh my goodness!  Does anyone think that higher ratings don't translate into more Ohio State love, recruiting prowess etc.? 

Finally, I live in Denver and the mountain time zone is great.  I get up, do a few things, and then by 10am it football ALL DAY! Fabulous!

I mean, I get why night games are so cool - I was at that Texas game watching Vince Young - but there is so much upside to the noon game.  After this season, I'm gonna be superstitious about our Buckeyes playing in other time slots!
