I know the Indians won't be able to sign Lindor to an extension, but if we do trade him, which I am not totally opposed to, then try to get some hitters for him. We have the pitching, but at times last year, the offense ran somewhat dry. The Tribe's front office has done a great job of making the team consistently good, so I trust that they will evaluate this situation with caution and get the best deal they can for Lindor if in the event a trade is in the team's best interest.

It's easy to be a pessimist and say that Chase's absence possibly for the rest of the season is a death blow to the Buckeyes winning the B10 and national championship. Just look at the other 21 starters that make up this team. Zach Harrison will make a very nice #22.....and the Dline is probably OSU's deepest position.

Comment 08 Nov 2019

As great as Chase is, we will still have a very good defense without him. If Justin Fields is gone, so are all the hopes of a B10 title and a national championship.

Comment 30 Oct 2019

I am cautiously optimistic that the Buckeyes can beat both teams, but Penn State most likely will be playing for Indy as well, while Michigan simply just wants to beat us period.

Comment 28 Oct 2019

The Buckeyes may not put up 50 if a rematch happens, but a dome and turf will make it even tougher for the Badgers D. Speed disparity was clearly evident Saturday.

Comment 24 Oct 2019

If neither get 100 yards, then Justin Fields might be right there with them.......the type of game might lend itself to Justin running more than usual.

Comment 15 Oct 2019

I watched the MSU--Wisconsin game, and I felt that the Spartans didn't play with nearly the same spirit as they did vs. the Buckeyes. While the Badgers were really good, MSU played way under their capabilities.

Comment 09 Oct 2019

Coach Day had to sort out an unusual QB situation with Martell, Fields, and Chugunov. He was very fortunate that the timing of Fields transfer worked out perfectly, and then Gunnar Hoak decided to come to OSU. Going forward, the transfer portal may set up similar roster dilemmas, so after Fields leaves, it will be interesting to see which QBs stay and which decide to go elsewhere.

Comment 09 Oct 2019

I'll give Dobbins a slight edge because I have seen more of him, but I love the way Teague runs hard and makes definitive cuts. JK has shown this year that he has some breakaway speed on long runs, something that he didn't show in 2018.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

Just maybe having the bye will help more Buckeyes to heal up for the 2nd half of the season.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

The Buckeyes handled the 1st quarter adversity, if you can call it that, with a 2nd quarter explosion......great response to that so called adversity.

Comment 05 Oct 2019

I'm very happy to have Coach Day in charge of the Buckeyes, but Urban Meyer inherited a program on probation that was ineligible for the B10 title, yet he still produced a 12-0 season in 2012. A national championship 2 years later, a CFP appearance in 2016, and back to back B10 titles in 2017 and 2018. Coach Day has a very difficult act to follow, and it will take time to see whether he can build a similar resume. Early returns are favorable, though.

Comment 30 Sep 2019

Keep playing like they have in the first 5 games, and the Buckeyes will be in the Final 4.

Comment 25 Sep 2019

I simply don't like taking only 4 teams despite having 5 P5 conference champions. Being a P5 conference champion should carry more weight than it does now. The CFP should be more of a national event than a regional one.
