The "back in the day" players also did not have the protective equipment that is worn today. We don't need people or organizations or governments to be baby-sitters who decide what is good and safe for us. God gave all of us a nickel to handle a pennies worth of problems. We need manage our own situations and live with the consequences and learn from our mistakes.
Agree. Football became extremely popular due to it being, in part, a very hard hitting sport and somewhat violent. It is a person's right to choose to play in such a sport or not. We don't need the NCAA to be a parent and decide what's safe for us or not.
You do know that the DB defending on Victor on that play was a "walk-on," right???????????????????????? A very good, experienced DB could have just as easily intercepted that pass and ran it back for a TD, as it was floated high into the air, but on target.
I have no idea how Coach Day is taking any kind of "risk" not naming a starter. To do so at this point would be completely stupid.
Based on the performances of both QB(s) in the Spring game, neither QB is anywhere near-ready to be proclaimed the starter. Each had a few good throws but mostly not-so-good. I am not near ready to buy into all the hype associated with Fields until he proves it on the field. He should eventually be a great QB, but he sure as hell isn't at this point in time. I think everyone need to take another look at his completion % in the Spring game - - - not exactly great #(s) - - - no matter how you look at it.
I am hoping that Baldwin makes it absolutely painfully difficult for Day and his staff to make a clear cut decision until 2 weeks before the 1st game. That my friends is THE BEST SCENARIO for the Buckeyes football team, as well as the for future for both QB(s).
What is the latest news on Jonah Jackson the OK grad transfer from Rutgers?
I agree with your take. The answers to the questions in this interview does NOT paint a very good image for our new Co-Defensive Coordinator. In fact, it scares the hell out of me.
It is great news but the Dispatch is not really authorized to make official announcements on behalf of Ohio State.
Completely agree. Their secondary has not come close to playing against an above average to great passing offense and QB. And, their offense, just like most PAC 12 teams, is simply not too good.
I think he means top defense in the PAC 12 whose teams really cannot spell DEEFENSEE.
Anything below 65% should be considered "failing."
You are correct.
Also, Haskins will be the QB of the three who will do well in the NFL !!!
Haskins is gone !!!
He clearly shows he will not endanger himself in any way.
IMHO, Wisconsin will destroy TTUN.
Phil Steele ranked TCU's QB less than 55th in the nation in his pre-season position grades. He only ranks the top 55 so I have no idea where he is actually ranked after 55. Steele also ranked TCU's OL less than 55th.
I think the Buckeyes football student-athletes will view every opponent - player as Brett McMurphy and will all they can to "destroy" them, without penalty of course.
Most experts see ttun being in 4th place in the BIG East after 12 games. Not exactly an "elevated" threat status.
There is only one unanswered question: When are the so-called journalists from 11W going to publically condemn Brett McMurphy for the disgusting and unprofessional manner in which he went about his business?
In terms of Meyer and OSU, it is very simple. This is the USA and a person is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, NOT in the court of public opinion and fake news. Unless the police and law enforcement arrest, charge, and convict Zach Smith of DV, there is no DV. For god's sake, the police and the 2 mothers involved state that Zach was not guilty of physical abuse of his wife.
Why do you and 11W continue to provide BM a platform for his BS? Why do you continue to recognize his existence?.
There have been a few others like Snook's, but not many.
And, what's odd to me about this forum and site is that nobody is asking 11 warriors staff to publically denounce Brett M. for his unprofessional behavior. Why is that?
Pretty sure that he would have a "say" in how $$$$$$$$ he would sue for, Meyer is NOT going to accept being viewed as guilty of anything. $38,000,000 is nothing compared to what he may sue for.
This will be done no later than Noon on Tuesday, but probably Monday evening.
Agree. IF Meyer acted appropriately, there is no way he and his legal team are going to accept a suspension beyond last week and this week.
Is that another way of saying they will work every paid minute of their 14 days?
Agree. IMHO, This meeting happened for PR purposes only. Same is true for meeting with her husband tomorrow.
What she or Zach has to say has nothing to do with what Meyer did or didn 't do.
