I think Justin Fields has a secret blood feud with Trevor Lawrence. I'm willing to bet that JF is pumped to be facing Clemson and will be EXTRA extra dialed in.
Lol! Ute is a native American tribe.
I was thinking Day is perfect Tressel-Meyer combo: white shirt, sporty vest.
Chryst is definitely a sweatshirt dude.
Okay that's all the fashion commentary we need.
I agree. He would get my Heisman vote. Imagine if he played full games...
That's damn clever.
“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.
This "Ohio State" team must be pretty good.
...and.you would have more time to prepare for a first round Clemson, rather than a one week turnaround. After their weak schedule Clson might not be prepared for facing an elite, playoff caliber team in the first round.
This is the longest run-on sentence I have ever read. Take a breathe next time!
Are you a professional poet? So prophetic...
Of course they would be chugging red wine.
Also, you could have just written SUCKS!
...and while I wish tOSU blew the doors off Penn State, I think double digit win where PSU put up a fight is better. We blow them out and the narrative is that PSU is just a Paper Lion. Alternatively, this is a solid win for tOSU, but PSU doesn't fall too far...
Don't forget his bullsh!t firing of the band director. A lot of past band members are still salty about that one.
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!
Silly Michigan fans. They actually have decent receivers. Everything else is f''d up thought
Honestly, this one seems a little "meh". Must be Rutgers week...
Mo has a story that really needs to be told, and never forgotten. I bought a copy of the book!
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.
This. Chase will be the poster child for the image/likeness stuff that is giving the NCAA a headache. Spin it correctly and NCAA will be on its heels. They will go lighter to save face and buy time on the pay to play issues that are giving them headaches.
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.
Great Podcast this week, gents! I see you have eliminated the "filler words"! Outstanding!
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!
Uhhhhhhhhhhh. Uh. Uh. Uhhhhhhhhhhh. Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Uhhhhhhhhhhh.
Dan: Please listen to your podcast at how many times you use this filler word. I really like the podcast, content and insights are great. However, it's almost unlistenable based on how many time you say "uh". Slow down and you will be a much better podcaster.
When I think "Wolverine Slayer" I think Troy Smith...
