So happy for Dwayne. He gets to stay close to his home state.

I'm a Redskins fan (lived in northern VA twice). I've already called my Redskins buddies to tell them that they won't believe what they'll see if they attend a game. It will shock them, as I was shocked the first time I saw him play in the Shoe.

The Redskins basically got the steal of the draft, probably because Haskins only had one year as a college starter. It doesn't matter. He's going to light things up.

I think this is a step in the right direction. The problem is not an occasional hard hit. It's a violent game and things will occasionally happen on even the best-trained teams. Ohio State goes to pains to teach rugby-style tackling, but it can break down when a kid is asked to go full speed and make a play..

What needs to be addressed are repeat offenders, both players and teams. If a player is routinely charged with targeting, sit him down. If a team and its coaches encourage targeting then there should be some substantial penalty, whether that is financial, bowl eligibility, etc.

that's why he hired and allowed Schiano and Davis to install and run the defense they did last year. 

Unfortunately, we'll be in a similar situation this year. Day is in his first year as an offensive-minded coach. He has to trust that Mattison, Washington and Hafley will put it all together on defense (LJSR is always solid). I like the new focus on simplicity, but all the parts have to work together well.

I was at that Berkeley game myself. Guiton put on a clinic.

I agree with you that Burrow transferring was logical. He was talented, but Haskins was clearly better. Fine.

Martell had an entitled attitude, IMHO. You don't get to be the starter just because of seniority. You have to earn it.

Baldwin is the head-scratcher to me. There is a bunch of speculation, but none of it adds up. He doesn't think he's a football player, but he's transferring through the NCAA. Hmm. If he just wanted to get a degree he could have just rode the bench at TOSU. Hmm.

It's amazing how one player's actions can impact the entire perception of a team. After Schlichter had his problems we reverted to Woody Ball, with the slight exception of Troy Smith for 2006.

So it's been 37 years since we've had a 1st round talent at QB. Wow!! The bright side is that going forward we'll be looked at as a premier destination for QBs, after what Haskins achieved.

The Ohio State University is steeped in tradition. Urban understood that, even though most of the fanbase distrusted him at first after he coached at Florida. I think Ryan Day is understanding this.

I believe in the Occam's razor theory. But what is puzzling is that Baldwin was injured and hadn't played a down in the regular season. 

I wish him luck, but he would have been better off being the primary backup at OSU. As it stands, he has no resume of starting experience. I could see a year of him being a backup, then transferring. But now he has nothing other than a 2-interception spring game. It just doesn't make sense to me.
