Seriously. It was "better than I thought"? Really? Cause I thought it failed. Yeah, I am pretty sure that's what happened. But then it is Vox so take it with a Margarita glass rim's worth of salt.
Pretty sure the 2-Star MAC players don't have to worry about losing their scholarship to a wave of 5-Star transfers.
In both your comments you mention the loss to Purdue. Why? I never did. Do you think my dislike of Delaney's leadership started on Dec 2nd 2019? If so why? I mentioned things I don't like that Delaney did that happened before the 2019 CFP selection so I really don't understand you are referencing the loss to Purdue. Straw-man much?
PS: My dislike for Delaney dates back to the 90's
You love Friday night games?
You love the scheduling that puts an emphasis TV favorable matchups ahead of any sort of balance?
You think MD and Rutgers have improved the play within the B1G?
You consider the Rose Bowl to be more important than a Championship?
That's fine if you love all the things that Delaney did, but just because he brought in cash doesn't mean I am required to like his governing vision.
He seems like he is more that qualified to handle the operations side of being the commissioner. So my only concern is what his leadership vision will be. Is he going to fight for the B1G? Is he going to set teams up for success? Or, is he going to be a hands off chump like Delaney who cares about nothing beyond maximizing revenue, fans and championships be damned? Only time will tell.
Seriously. A matte wrapped Bentley isn't ostentatious at all. It's included standard with the I'm-21-and-a-millionaire starter pack.
Roll out of bed. Watch the Buckeyes play. Have the rest of the day to do whatever.
What's not to like?
Maybe 11W could offer an Off-Season Primer for new fans so they understand there isn't a lot of game day discussion in the summer?
Where did you find a silhouette of me sitting on the ground demanding more food by waving my empty plate in the air?
It's only mind boggling if you are working under the assumption that the NCAA is actually looking out for the well-being of the student-athlete. It's only mind boggling if you choose to believe the lies the NCAA tells to prop up their legitimacy.
If however you see the NCAA as a morally bankrupt group of money grubbing shitheads then it actually makes sense. The NCAA, like a neighborhood bully, only goes after those it perceives are weak because they fear being exposed in a stand up fight with someone. So if you self report you will get slammed, this is like walking up to a bully and letting them know you got a pocket full of lunch money. However, if you refuse to cooperate they don't do a thing, this is like telling a bully that maybe you have a pocketful of money but they will need to beat you to get it. So, if you are transferring for clearly questionable reasons but bring a lawyer they cave immediately, but if it's just you filling out a form - even if your case is textbook legit - they will pick on you to show how tough they are.
If you can see the NCAA for what they really are, then this dick move on their part totally fits their character.
My favorite is the part about following him in HS... LOL. I mean, I consider myself to be pretty dang smug and I don't hold a candle to someone that thinks things like, "I don't know how much you follow me, but..." LOLOLOLOL My side is splitting.
NEVER CHANGE TATHAN!
We don't actually know who would have been in the BCS title games if the playoffs never happened because the methodology is completely different. Any year we had 1 loss or less and there was less than 2 undefeated Power5 teams you can make an argument that Ohio State would have squeaked into the title game had the BCS not been replaced.
You can't even extrapolate from the BCS formula last used in the 2012 season because they were always tweaking it. What would the BCS formula have looked like in 2017 or 2018? No one knows.
You seem to be confident that the Martel version of events fed to the NCAA is a true and factual accounting of the events as they happened. After watching QB1 and seeing his attitude and reactions over the last 2 years I find the Martel version of events to be less than compelling and I am not going to cast a negative judgement over Ohio State based on them The Martel version is a narrative written to produce a result, immediate eligibility, and as such needed to make Ohio State look to be the villain. That Ohio State did not counter with a competing narrative is NOT an admission of guilt. This isn't a court of law. Martel was requesting a waiver, Ohio State didn't contest it and the NCAA granted it. That's all that happened. So on this, we disagree. But as you said, Go Bucks!!
If someone thinks Holtmann is a bad coach for not winning the B1G the last two years you can go ahead and ignore anything they have to say about college basketball. Because clearly, they are not paying attention.
Treating Tate shitty? How so? Is asking a player to actually compete for a starting spot such a crime? Or should they hand out starting spots based solely on tenure?
Treating him shitty would have been to try and block him from playing this year and Ohio State didn't do that.
Go watch the first season of QB1. Tate's diva attitude is what ultimately undermined him and that attitude predated his time at Ohio State.
Cool. Well then fingers crossed!
They have cornered the market? Says who? What market?
I was googling them and I could find NOTHING to back up your claim. Hell, their wiki page only has a few boilerplate paragraphs, not what one would expect from the revolutionary leader of sports media who has "cornered the market" with top demo.
They have given consumers an outlet to talk about sports the way we have been talking about sports amongst ourselves for decades.
WUT? What has Barstool given us? Details please.
As far as I can tell Barstool is derivative and juvenile. I can find nothing online that backs up your position. Point in fact when I search for Barstool revolutionizing sports media the top, #1 link says... "10000% f**k Barstool Sports". When the top search returns are all about how terrible Barstool is then, baring any further evidence, I feel confident they are nothing special and in no way shape or form, leaders of sports media.
Would a long NIT run be better in terms of more practice time? Or does is not really matter the way Bowl practice time does for football?
lol, this is an absurd take.
Please explain how Barstool "revolutionized sports media".
Very true but the result is the same either way. After all, what happens if that flag is tossed? Is Ohio State going to push MD back a few yards and given them another shot at the 2 points? I don't believe so. I believe Urban declines the penalty and the result is the same.
Yeah well that's what the IRS told me too... lol.
In times like this I feel the word's of my friend Stephan A Smith are appropriate... "If you are going to be wrong, be really wrong".
I put a lot of the dysfunction on Grinch and Schiano. I think the Tennessee mess that kept Schiano here when Grinch was expecting to be the guy created something they weren't able to work through.
Might not be enough to make the Defense a mess in a normal year, but this was no normal year with Urban being kept away for fall training and then losing the best defensive player in college football after 2 games.
Who was only open because of a blatant hold.
