John Bacon is so good. It doesn't pain me to say that. Always writes good content.

"You can't go out and try to be what Dwayne was in game one," Day said of Fields Monday "You can't go out and try to be what J.T. Barrett or Braxton Miller was. You got to be yourself."

Which, who knows? Could mean a lethal dose of Dwayne, J.T. Barrett and Braxton Miller.

One can hope - dreams are written in August, and achieved at season's end.

Hey moron I said relevant or non-relevant. 

Comment 07 Aug 2019

Not sure if it is relevant, just my first thought when I saw the Pat Forde mention.  Think it's allowed on 11W for me to share my personal relevant or non-relevant thoughts (politics aside), Chic.  Lot of people do it on several articles without any harm, here included.

Comment 07 Aug 2019

As an OSU football fan, college football fan, really, always thought of Forde as a clown.  But I just, personally felt obligated to share:

Forde has three wonderful kids (two of which that went to my high school alma mater), and one daughter who currently swims for Stanford and is a near guarantee 400m freestyle swimmer for the USA in Tokyo 2020.

I've sat with him many times at swim meets across the Midwest, and he is a family man, he is a die-hard sports fan, and while he's a clown journalist, I really admire him as a father and person.

DV me and Pat's sports columns, but don't DV Pat as a person. Just my two cents.

2017: 10-win ND (on the road), 9-win MSST (No. 17) on the road, No. 4 Auburn (conference championship), No. 2 Oklahoma (playoff), close loss to Bama (national championship).

2018: 10-win Florida (on the road), 10-win Kentucky team (on the road) the following week, close losses to Alabama and Texas.

They're pretty good.. no complaints with them being where they are. More proven than our team at least (as we currently speak).

To be upfront, I 100% agree with you on 6 out of your 7 well thought-out points.

To be fair, Tom Herman's playcalling in East Lansing (2014) also won us the division, in my opinion.  Shredded an elite defense (held 9 opponents to 20 points or less) for 49 points.

Comment 23 Jul 2019

Offense: Brady Quinn (ex-2006 Fiesta Bowl, obviously).  Talk about spiral.

Defense: Jadeveon Clowney.  Talk about speed and power.

Matt Millen will be back in the booth this fall after going through a heart transplant. He'll return for Week 1.

Don't love him as a game analyst, but really glad to hear he's healthy enough to go back to work.
