Hard flex here, seems important right now. Maybe since there are no sports, we shouldn't complain about someone posting about the #1 RB in the country possibly committing to OSU. It should be buried in the recruiting thread so we can keep the spots open for another "XYZ athlete contracts coronavirus" so people can passively interject political views and misinformation about the virus.
Because as a kid, you didn't see Ronald without seeing Nancy haha. D.A.R.E.
I was born in the early 80's, was old enough to know what was going on when Chernobyl happened. It was but a blip on the radar in general and glossed over in school. I understand that not everything can be taught. i was also someone who took interest in history so I was paying attention. But call me crazy, we hit every single war in history class and were given the good guys and the bad guys, but something like Chernobyl was pretty significant for the human race and not taught? Maybe because the bad guys were not as easy to point out since it was a human failure and not an attack? I have no clue.
Just because it wasn't in a text book doesn't mean it wasn't taught. I was in middle/high school in the 90's. Recent history was discussed constantly. Chernobyl was never approached. Ask someone that was in 5th grade in 2008 if Chernobyl was in their text books and taught. I bet the answer is no.
The reason so many tourists are attracted to Chernobyl is because it's probably the largest man made disaster in history (COVID-19 theories aside) and was swept under the rug completely. How many of you learned about Chernobyl in school? I mean I know it happened in the 80's....but I got to learn all about the Reagans and Desert Storm in the early 90's at school...Chernobyl was never mentioned. It's like the human race said, we are so stupid that we are going to pretend that this stupidity pointing out our stupidness never happened.
Liddell is a very well spoken kid for being a true freshman. If someone stuck a mic in my face for 5 minutes at that age, I probably would have mumbled some profanities, chugged a beer, and dove into a bush.
I have learned something very strange about my family habits throughout all of this. I heard a guy talking about the TP crisis. He said the buying didn't make sense because a house of 4 would maybe use 1 roll of toilet paper per week. Well I have a house of four, apparently whoever he is basing this off of is assuming it's 4 males, and they don't have a feces filled day the next day after a night of drinking and late night pizza.
I was thinking the same thing about Potter, I think he comes on strong and becomes a starting DE.
So did we beat Purdue last night? I fell asleep.
Everyone is out of toilet paper apparently. That will never work.
This is partially in jest, and quite possibly partially true:

Hey, I'm not here to tell you what to do. I don't want to get this virus as much as I don't want the flu, or any other virus that spreads human-human for that matter. I just seriously wonder about these things. Like to me, a virus like Zika that had a death rate of 8.5% compared to the 3.8% or whatever the current rate for coronavirus, and literally can land on you with a shift in the wind from a bug, is much more scary. You can avoid coronavirus like you can avoid the flu. Wash hands regularly, don't touch people in public, etc. You literally rolled the dice on Zika the second you walk out your front door, or open the front door for that matter since a mosquito could fly into your house.
Serious question, did you stop going outside when people in the US started getting the Zika virus last year from mosquitoes?
I'm sure all of the students are currently sitting in their parents house, not going outside or having any interaction with other humans. They are not traveling to Mexico, Florida, out west, etc and interacting with other students their age. They are not on planes, buses, or public transit. They are not lined up at the bar, head upside down, while a bartender pours vodka from the bottle going down the line, mouth to mouth. The students that opted not to travel and stay on campus are not currently planning a 2 week bender with their friends. The bars will not allow students to enter and give them money. All parties will require HAZMAT suits to enter, alcohol will not be served at these parties, single use bottles of water and clean bathrooms will be priority.
Every student will come back from the 2 week "quarantine" period sterile and fully healthy.
1997 Rose Bowl. After Cooper failed to beat TTUN (again) to have a chance to play for the National Championship, I thought for certain Jake the Snake was going to bring a undefeated ASU to a win and a possible NC. Buckeyes defense played well, but the offense bailed the team out with a last minute TD to Boston.
Fun fact for the youngsters, the same guy (can't remember the name) blocked both a OSU FG and extra point in the 4th quarter of that game. How many times does that happen?
Pretty sure his younger brother Noibe Toppin is better.
Oddly enough, there is a direct parallel happening about 4 minutes south of the VCA...the Blue Jackets have pretty much done the same thing...dealing with a million injuries but slogging through to make something out of their season. I'm not a Blue Jackets fan, but what they have done is on the same level of the basketball team. Young guys filling roles that most would think they would buckle under the pressure. At this point with the basketball team, I don't care if they make the Final Four or lose in the first round...house money at this point with everything that has happened to them.
Think about all the idiots that were ready to move on from Coach during that January stretch. Injuries, Carton's issues, young team overall...they didn't want to admit that any of them were factors, Coach needed to go. Meanwhile he took a team that was picked to finish last in the conference his first year to a great finish and invite to the dance, then turned around after he lost a monster in KBD and took the team back to the tournament and made some noise last year. Now this year the team has one of the best overall resumes in basketball, ranked highly in most polls that dig deep into a teams metrics, and pulled off one of the biggest turnarounds of the year with a very short bench, continuing to deal with injuries.
Consider the moment that things changed....he suspended Luther and Duane, and called the team out for not being tough. They slowly started playing better and righting the ship, and now only a couple of games out of 1st place in the conference (which I know they can not overcome) that is the toughest in basketball. THEY STARTED 2-6 IN CONFERENCE PLAY!
I'm so glad to see EJ come into his own. However, amidst his breakout paired with Senior Night, Kaleb Wesson's performance somehow flew under the radar. Yeah he had points, but the work he did down low yesterday was masterful. Outsized by about 4", he was straight up battling for position down low. Not taking away from the teams defensive performance as a whole, but while the perimeter defenders had time to catch a breath when their guy didn't have the ball, Wesson was in a street fight every moment trying to be in a good position to deny entry to the post. A year ago, two years ago, he would have been worn out midway through the first half and probably had 4 fouls.
Back to EJ...this kid has it. He is the anti-Amir Williams.
Flag it, star it, post of the year.
I was about to say...come on everyone, are we just going to leave this one alone?
He threw for 259 yards, 2 TD's, 0 INT's, and ran for 107 yards and a TD. Had a higher QBR than Fields in that game. Against LSU he struggled.
You should stop arguing to argue, and just look back at your original comment and admit that the facts don't back up your argument about him regressing. Moving the goal posts is a TUN tactic...be better.
Let me preface this by saying that I also don't think Lawrence is what the media that hypes him to be but:
2018: 3280 passing yards, 65.2% completion percentage, 30 TD's, 4 INT's, 157.6 passer rating. 177 rushing yards, 1 TD
2019: 3665 passing yards, 65.8% completion percentage, 36 TD's, 8 INT's, 166.7 passer rating. 563 rushing yards, 9 TD
The only way that he "regressed" as you said multiple times is throwing INT's. Every single other major statistic to grade a QB by, he progressed. But hey, let's just throw opinions around like fact right? They would have to bench him? Come on.
