Let's see if any of the other Power 5 conferences start to change schedules like the BIG. If they don't that says to me it is going to be a power/money grab by them at the expense of the BIG. Will the BIG change their thinking or go it alone. Will the BIG schedule be the same or will the BIG change/add a 10th game or more?  Interesting times for sure. Personally I don't see a season this year. The COVID-19 is being spread by 18-36 year old young adults and that is the sweet spot for college age students. Until risky behavior radically changes or a vaccine emerges the sports will likely be sidelined. JMHO!

Nice to be recognized in pre-season. Better to be honored post season. Let's hope they play up to the hype. They're deserving.

What were the odds Burrow would be Heisman and first pick in the draft around this time last year. 

Don't think it was even conceivable at this time last year. 

Will expectations and the Heisman curse doom Joe's professional legacy?

Is he a graduate transfer with immediate eligibility or will he need to sit out? 

I can't remember if the NCAA is allowing an athlete on a one time basis to transfer without sitting. I think it's been proposed but don't know the status of it.

Any one else concerned that of the 4 lowest overall rated commits for 2021, 3 are DB/S with only one of the secondary commits in the top 100. Just wondering. I suppose you have to trust the coaches and their evaluations on the players. Must admit OSU has not had very many misses in the last 3 years. .

Listened  to 2 doctors from the University of Washington and Vanderbilt state that a round 2 with COVID-19 could happen in the fall. I hated to hear that. It was on CNN just before the White House Task Force appeared for their daily briefing. A vaccine for this is a year away and like flu vaccines they aren't 100% preventative. The actions to prevent COVID-19 like self sheltering, distancing, and other efforts being taken to keep people apart may be with us longer than any of us want to believe. smh.

It's interesting that 2 of the 3 DB's committed to the Bucks are from Ohio and the same HS, LaSalle. Currently on the 2020 roster there is only one scholarship DB from Ohio - Marcus Williamson. Anybody have any concern about this. Is Ohio ELITE in DB's this year?  Our best DB's lately or since Meyer arrived were recruited from out of  state. Now with Day at the helm we seem to be looking more inward but is that because they are that good or are we taking the path of least resistance and don't want to battle for the elite. I understand the MAN is back and he is a recruiting machine. But, as a comparison lets look at our receivers lately. They are almost all from out of state. Is it coincidence or just that receivers on an elite level come mostly from out of state. Could the same be said about DB's in general too. Just asking. I'm a little concerned but perhaps shouldn't be. Any thoughts?

Sampson James to the best of my knowledge would have to sit out a year unless the NCAA changes the rule for transfers effective for the 2020 regular season. I don't know what is his reason for transferring. Perhaps he feels he will not have to sit. Anyway, I think Miyan Williams will surprise if he can pick up the offense and be ready after fall camp. I also would not be surprised if Teague sits a year and uses a medical red shirt. All in all the RB situation will be iffy all year. If Teague sits and another injury occurs to a RB it will be crisis time. JMHO.

Good thing the Bucks have a QB in the 2021 class. If the proposed rule to grant 1 transfer w/o sitting out is passed, I could see one of the three QB's leaving, maybe even 2 of the three go. That could be the new norm. Why not? Joe Burrow benefited greatly. He may be the new norm going forward. I see the logic. Sitting or waiting your turn is not why you go to elite programs. Haskins waited and it worked for him. However, what Haskins did may become the exception rather than the norm. The pandora box of college athletes transferring is almost upon us. Buckle up it's going to get crazy!

I have to admit I was aware he was transitioning to DE but your saying the move to TE is old news? Well, ok then. Still how do other posters feel about it?
