Purdue's AD said today that they are basing the decision off the original schedule for the year, where there were 9 conference games (6 divisional and 3 cross-divisional games). They will be dropping a cross-divisional game off each team's schedule, and our original crossover games were Iowa, Nebraska, and Illinois.

To make the toughest schedule (which will help us leave a good impression on the CFP committee), I would like to see:

10/24 vs. Rutgers
10/31 @ Michigan State
11/7 vs. Iowa
11/14 @ Maryland
11/21 vs. Nebraska
11/28 @ Penn State
12/5 vs. Indiana
12/12 vs. TTUN
12/19 vs. Wisconsin (Indy)

Bruce Feldman just pointed out that within the statement, there's an interesting rule:

If a player tests positive for COVID-19, they can't return for at least 21 days.

Reds took 2 of 3 from the Cardinals this weekend, and we now have 4 with the Pirates, including a Monday doubleheader, to start this week. If we're going to make a run, it has to start now.

Bauer on the mound this afternoon, and it appears we'll see DeSclafani tonight. Sweep the series, we're only 1 game under .500 (and probably pushing the Cardinals/Brewers for 2nd place).

It's a possibility, but this team has to start it up NOW. Let's go Reds!

I was only 3, but I've grown recognize the significance of this day in American history. What a dark, tragic day.

God Bless America.

Looking forward to Archbold @ Liberty Center tonight. In the regular season last year, Liberty Center won 39-36. They rematched in they playoffs last year, and Archbold won 31-30.

This is a pair of teams fighting for a league title in the NWOAL, Ohio's oldest conference, and they'll likely see each other again in the playoffs. This one is big time.

I'm not going, but I'll be following my alma mater, Archbold (11-2 last year) playing Bryan (5-5 last year), as well as the Liberty Center (10-2) at Wauseon (9-3) game.

It's actually kind of incredible, for the Buckeyes to be looking for their 4th straight Big Ten title this season.

They won 6 in a row from 1972-1977, and that appears to be the longest stretch of Big Ten dominance in school history.

Really makes you appreciate this run, when it's put into perspective like that.

Comment 26 Jul 2020

This bullpen will go as far as the bullpen will take it. They need to get a lot more consistent, and soon.

Beyond frustrating that they have blown 2 straight gems thrown by the starter (Gray, Castillo, and Bauer have all been lights-out, really), but there's a lot of time between now and October. Gotta get things figured out, and I believe it'll come.

8-team playoff this year, with all P5 champions automatically qualifying. I think this is the only way to have some sort of fairness and level playing field, with an uneven amount of games being played.

I would guess all other bowl games would likely be canceled, then. You could make the 8-team playoff (7 games total) be the NY6 and then the championship game. It seems to work out, though conference affiliations would mostly have to be scrapped for the NY6 for the year to make this work seeding-wise. I've got the P5 champions automatically taking the top 5 seeds, then 3 wild-cards. It's hypothetical, so don't let the teams hang you up.

I see this as an example:

Quarterfinals
Rose: #1 Ohio State vs. #8 LSU
Orange: #2 Clemson vs. #7 Georgia
Sugar: #3 Alabama vs. #6 Penn State
Fiesta: #4 Oklahoma vs. #5 Oregon

Semifinals
Cotton: #1 Ohio State vs. #4 Oklahoma
Peach: #2 Clemson vs. #3 Alabama

Finals
Miami: #1 Ohio State vs. #2 Clemson

Koepka's caddie tested positive today, after testing negative on Monday. I'd assume it is mostly players that have interacted with them in some way recently.

The PGA Commissioner had a presser today, in which he essentially stated, "the show must go on."

Comment 17 Jun 2020

I typically don't re-watch losses. I watched the Iowa debacle the whole way through and just kind of sat in a stunned silence afterward, but never re-watched it.

I'm thinking about watching last year's Penn State game again. That was the last time we truly had Justin Fields had full strength.

I think Luke Fickell would be the most fun/interesting hire they could make.
