At some point the financial loss will become too big of a factor to ignore for these states.

the states aren’t ultimately going to determine when the economies open, people will. 

And to another’s point:

Posting ultra morbid stuff about how society is changed for years and blah blah blah isn’t helping. It’s only going make everyone else lose hope of light at the end of the tunnel and just say screw it to social distancing

Conversely, everyone acting like things are going to open back up and be normal in 2 weeks are setting people up for failure. You say the “bars are opening in 2 weeks” but that just shows you’re not actually paying attention to what people are saying. They’re not opening up like before. They won’t be packed when they do. Nothing is going back to normal until there is a vaccine or a “cure” (there are technically no cures for viruses). And if you think schools, teams, companies, etc are going to open themselves to that liability...hahahaha.  Most people saying “morbid” stuff don’t want to be saying it. I’d love nothing more than for everything to be safe and great but that’s not reality. And acting like it is doesn’t do anyone any favors either. 

anyway, back to the topic of this thread, hopefully it lightens up enough that they can get some visits in and lock down this #1 class.

But, he's still a good coach.  Take Urban's hiring out of the B1G (that means OSU is great, not elite) and Michigan would've won the B1G and The Game in 2016/18 and made the playoffs.

That's, at best, misleading. Without OSU hiring Urban the BIG is still woefully behind other conferences. UM is still likely toying around with Brady Hoke. He probably would have won a few years, but 16 and 18 are not even remotely the same teams. And we don't know who OSU hires if Urban wasn't there. They weren't going to keep Fickell. And Harbaugh is an average coach that actually makes pretty good hires. Greg Roman in SF was the perfect marriage for Kaepernick. Mattison/Durkin and Brown are solid DCs that kept his teams afloat with his outdated smashmouth philosophy.

i don't know how rivals does it but for everyone who might have issues with this, like 99 % of sites that do free trials allow your trial to go on even when you cancel. So usually i'll go in right away and cancel so it doesn't auto-renew.

Just an FYI.

Or look at Sweden, who tried the no lockdown policy and is now outpacing even the US poor ass handling of this disease. 

Comment 27 Apr 2020

I think Michigan has a higher ceiling but psu has a higher floor. Michigan needs strong Midwest classes (or Massachusetts right now) whereas psu generally can pull some of the top 5-10 from Jersey, PA, and the DMV which gives them that higher floor. 

Comment 03 Apr 2020

The top 2 players in philly this year are committed to the buckeyes. Having lived there for years there’s a small PSU lean to the fan base but nothing crazy.

He probably has offsets. So even if he’s fired, um only has to pay the difference of what the next job wouldn’t.  So no double dipping. 

Comment 02 Apr 2020

Birm said in his April to-do list article that they had to keep all their commitments, which just seems like one of those read between the lines kinds of things. Makes me think someone is wavering, but I honestly couldn’t tell you who. Everyone seems pretty solid. 

Comment 22 Mar 2020

I don’t know what was said behind closed doors but this to me sounds dead on what McCarthy said and seems to be a talking point for Michigan writers. Trying to sow discord by making it seem like day and tOSU staff are dishonest. Is it true? Not sure. I believe mccarthys story because I think they did want to wait but changed their mind when McCord blew them away on the white board (at least that’s what stories at the time said). I don’t believe the same for Edwards. According to Birm it seems like he was told, “you can commit now and we might take 1RB. if Pryor commits we’re taking the first of you and Henderson. Now maybe Pryor was already in and he found that out? Not sure but until someone is at least a verbal, I wouldn’t consider them in either. 

Comment 19 Mar 2020

It’s not the driving distance, it’s frequency and availability of flights. I remember someone checking back then and there were like 10ish non stops a day to Austin and 0 to Columbus. 2hr flight times vs 6-8 with layovers

Comment 11 Mar 2020

Tbh I’d imagine none of it is “safe” but If you assume 1.5 parents per kid at a basketball game, 25-30 kids between the 2 teams, plus siblings, etc. that’s about 100-150 people. Because from what I saw only immediate family can attend. 

Comment 10 Mar 2020

OSU has one of the better medical centers in the country. They know more than us, I assure you. Cincy cancelled theirs today and isn’t allowing events of more than 150 until May 31. Say what you want but if I’m following actions over words, this is about to get much worse before it gets better. Italy is up to a 6% death rate as of earlier today. Go look up a few diseases with even half that mortality rate. It’s not PR. It’s trying to get people to take it seriously so it doesn’t spread.
