Yes it would count, but to your point, it would not mean as much to me as a championship during a "regular" year.  There is just something about going through an entire season, the entire grind, and outlasting every other team.  It's a long marathon, not a sprint.  

I think that is one of the reasons 2014 will always be so special to me.  Would it have counted if it was only 10 or 11 games, yes, but it certainly would not have been the same.

I agree there are different levels of loyalty, and yes, Dantonio is at the top of that list and Tress is high up as well.  Just noting that even some of the greatest coaches have weaknesses.

NCAA president Mark Emmert acknowledged in Thursday's release that the trajectory of the COVID-19 pandemic must change if college sports are in fact going to return this fall.

While this is not unexpected, it certainly does not give me much hope for this fall.  

I hope I am wrong.  According to my wife, I am always wrong, so there's that.

Can't speak for what was going on back then, but don't be fooled by the fact that Massillon Washington is a public school.  They can recruit with the best of the private schools.

Doss is one of my favorite Buckeyes, beginning with his days at Canton McKinley. 

That 1997 Canton McKinley team that Doss played on has to be the best team ever in Ohio.  Doss, Jamar Martin, Kenny Peterson plus a bunch of other D1 guys. Our high school team played on Friday nights, and they played on Saturday nights.  Was fortunate to be able to see the regular season game between them and St. Ignatius, when they were ranked #1 in the country and Iggy's #4 in the country.  There was some serious talent on the field that night.

all head cases ... shall i continue?

Every team in the NFL has had, or will have some head cases on their team.  Yes, the Browns have mismanaged talent acquisition, but if you try hard enough you can make a list of every team's busts or character flawed players.

This is finally a smart decision by the Browns when it comes to a second contract.  For too long they have let what little talent they drafted walk when their rookie contracts expire, all in the name of saving some money, which never paid off anyway.  

Defensive ends are a premium in today's NFL, so pay the man his money and keep him in Cleveland for a long time.

Golf has seen a bit of a resurgence with the pandemic,   Hard to say if it will last, but it has been at least a glimmer of hope for an industry that has been in decline for several years.  

I think the market will always be supply driven, and in the 90's courses were going up left and right, and somewhat oversaturated the market. The market has been correcting ever since. Combine that with less people coming into the game, course closures were inevitable.   

One other thing that would help, golf could use a new Tiger Woods.

We won't know for some time.  Different parts of the country are treating things very differently.  Out here in the New York city metro area, we were hit extremely hard, well beyond just the nursing homes and at risk age demographic.  I know several people that were infected, and know several people who had a family member, co worker or friend die. I am not super old (just turned 40), so it's not like my circle of friends, co-workers and family are in nursing homes.  

My point is, New Yorkers are taking this very seriously.  it is rare to see a person in public without a mask.  Our numbers are continuing to go down as our economy has slowly began to open back up. A few months ago, we were the Covid capital of the world. Even as testing has increased (New York has been testing super aggressively for the last 2 months), numbers are still going way down. We are still very apprehensive and cautious as a whole.  Other areas, mainly in the south, the opposite is happening.  Numbers are increasing, people are fatigued with everything and seem (my opinion, not fact) to be taking this virus less seriously.  

My point with all of this is that it is going to be very hard to take anything right now at face value.  So much could change from month to month, area to area.  

I think fall is going to be interesting, I'll be happy if football is played period, regardless of whether or not fans are in the stands, but that is just my opinion coming from one area that was devastated by this virus.

Thousands of people are gathering everyday for protests, so I think we will see in the coming weeks if outbreaks from outdoor events are cause for major concern or not.  

So to answer your questions, I'll reserve judgement until more info becomes available.

I've been around this site for some time, and the one thing I have learned is to just avoid reading the comments in any potentially politically charged thread or article.  

Problem solved.
