Anyone old enough here who survived the flu in 1918?  hahaha...  Wondering if they cancelled sports back then too and this is the first that I can remember when a pandemic turned into a political issue.  Slightly surprised that this pandemic hasn't brought us closer as Americans (or as human beings in general) but instead it widened the chasms between us.  Anyways, should there be no sports this fall, have to look into how to use that time constructively.  Maybe update my skill set, find a new hobby, read more, go more hiking...etc.  But yeah...2020 can suck it.

Then, Terry McLaurin:

Echoing what (Dixon) said. I actually ran into Chase Winovich at (a pre-draft NFL team) visit last week. And they still treat it like any other game. I was laughing when I was talking to him and he asked why I was laughing and I said, “y’all just don’t get it. We drive every day, that’s our life.

I think this just about sums up the last 20 years or so perfectly.

I think the starters haven't played a full game yet.  For all practical purposes, the starters have played "only" 5 total games.  On one hand, it keeps the little nagging injuries to a minimum.  On the other hand, if that game comes down to the 4th quarter, will the lack of playing a full game come back to haunt us? 

I don't think it's gonna happen but how glorious would it be to see the 2nd team come in half way through the 3rd quarter or so.  LOL

i have to admit, I would love to see more of Dawand Jones.  He makes the other big guys looks small.  Isn't a tackle suppose to be the more nimble one when compared to a guard?  Imagine after a year or two at Ohio States Strengh and Training and Nutrition program what he would look like

What a fantastic educational article.  Thank you for posting it.  I am glad for all the mistakes that happened in the game.  I believe those are very valuable lessons to be applied in the future.  I rather have those lessons now as opposed to learning them when we play TCU.  I hope that Fuller won't play and we continue to play Pryor and Wint.  I believe we will win against Rutgers even without Fuller.  But yeah...as someone else mentioned, the one thing that seems a little disconcerting is the speed.  Was Oregon really that fast, or the DB's not that fast, or just plain old bad angles?

As far as QB backup, let's blow away the opponents by the beginning of the 3rd Q and put in Burrow and Haskins, or whoever in there.  Backup QB controversy solved =)

But yeah...I thought last year there were too many times when the offensive was looking to the sidelines waiting for the call to be made.  In my head I was thinking that they dialing up a very super duper complicated play that would end up in tons of yardage only to result in a few yards and a dust sprinkle.
