Precisely, it's just spreading unfounded rumor. For a crime you need a person, an opportunity and a motive. There's no evidence of the person rumored, the opportunity is passed, and the motive doesn't make sense.
OK, after #2 beat #3, this is no surprise whatsoever. Our Buckeyes need to just keep winning and preparing for something even bigger than beating our erstwhile rival.
After whipping Penn State at home and blasting Michigan up there, I hope Ohio State will face an undefeated Minnesota in Indianapolis for the championship of the Big Ten.
After defeating 3 top teams in a row, who do you suppose will be #1 going into the playoffs?
And after beating 2 of the very best teams in the nation, who do you think will be #1?
Just win, OK? It's easier said than done, but that's all that needs to happen.
Minnesota hasn't been meaningful in the national football picture since the 1940s. it would be a welcome change to meet them in Indianapolis.
A little more sleep, a little slumber, and the fool perishes in his comfort.
The new math: 2+2 = #1
Life is not always fair. As Chase himself said, he's after the Ring, not the statuette.
Definitely, playing Wisconsin version 2 is a no-win situation. Win or lose, Ohio State cannot win.
This relates to the biggest underlying problem with the Heisman. There is only one trophy for 100 QBs and 100 RBs and 100 WRs and literally 1,000s of other players.
What if there are 2 or more great QBs, like this year with Burrow and Tagovailoa and Lawrence and Hurts and Fields?
What if there are 2 or more great RBs, like in 2015 with Zeke Elliott and Derrick Henry?
I confess to being down on the awards since the 1980s.
How did Keith Byars lose out to an undersized QB playing in a second-tier conference?
And worse yet how did the first $40-million QB Steve Young lose out to RB Mike Rozier?
Young was bigger, smarter, could throw way better, and even run faster than Rozier.
I'm late to this game, Ryder, but who else other than the great speed reader and memory expert!!
He also won Olympic Gold for the USA shooting 80% from the field, and after he was 3-time Big Ten POY and twice NCAA POY, as you mentioned, he was also the NBA ROY and 7-time NBA All-Star!!
Who else is even close??
This was a long road back for Bowen. I wonder what went wrong with the surgery that his bone did not heal properly. Best wishes for the coming football in the fall, and the coming wedding to your cute fiancee in the spring.
I missed the context and over reacted. All the best to you.
As one of my favorite Buckeye players said,
"We ain't come here to play school..."
Huh? "Argumentum ad vericundium" as my logics professor would say. Kevin, what does having taken statistics in college have to do with whether the players and coaches have ill will toward Bosa?
I'll go you one better, I have a BA majoring in Econometrics with graduate level 600 courses in matrix statistics, and also an MBA in Finance, and what I think about Bosa is that....
Thank you for the article, Colin. I like opponent analysis similar to what Dan Hope and Kyle Jones provide.
I can see you now at the Arboretum on the shores of Lake Washington.
RFR, again I don't understand these capricious DVs. You provide some excellent data, and then get a DV. Perhaps Chris Petersen is an anonymous poster and took offense.
Again, UV to offset.
ASJ, at times the DVs on here seem capricious. Perhaps there are grammar nazis who wanted to correct and change "who" to "whom."
Regardless, UV to offset.
It's been a dog day for Jistphe. Mush.
And JT scored a TD on the previous play. They nullified it for a penalty. So JT backed up and ran it in again.
Ahh, the famous 41-yard dash of JT over Jabrill.
Parris Campbell especially. He attacked NW in the first quarter of the Big Ten championship game like he was on a mission from God-- catching passes and running with a determined attitude.
I just found that UW article today too, BB919. It was good to finally get something other than pics of dudes riding roller coasters, but it took me a little more than 4 seconds to find it. You get a star on your forehead for being fast.
And Archie Griffin's iconic run through the whole USC team for a TD that became the basis for a video game play.
