I primarily use Facebook for finding long lost friends, e.g. people who have moved or changed their married names.  The "mutual friends" aspect is useful in that regard, especially if your friend's name is "John Smith" or "Susan Jones" After that I take the conversation off of Facebook --There's nothing else worthwhile there to me.

The defense has DOMINATED the O thus far.  That means if the defense is bad then the offense is a horror show. 

Not sure what you're trying to say here. Offense usually lags defense in preseason. We have a brand new QB, 4 new starters at OL, and the WR corps will look different with Campbell and McLaurin gone. With all of that change I'd be much more concerned if the defense wasn't dominating at this point -- they should be, as they already know what our offense it trying to do. We'll just have to see if they put it together in real games.

O lineman are typically well-educated as a unit. Didn't Michael Jordan double major in Business and Chinese or something? Not to say there aren't whiz kids elsewhere (e.g. Craig Krenzel and Molecular Genetics).

I doubt Day would tell Martell to leave. A scholarship is a scholarship. It was probably along the lines of "You might consider other opportunities if you want to start". If Martell had been happy to ride the bench, he'd still be a Buckeye.

I think Martell misjudged the situation and thought he could be the next Joe Burrow, but the situations were not the same. Burrow was a seasoned QB with a proven arm and LSU needed a seasoned starter. That is, Burrow --> LSU was much like Fields > OSU. In both situations there was ostensibly a "competition" but everyone knows the new guy has a leg up.

Martell, by contrast, didn't have much to show from OSU and walked into a truly open competition at Miami. Being beat out by a redshirt freshman is not a good start.

Counseling can work, but it doesn't always. I had a brief bout of depression after college and tried counseling. It actually made things worse, as the counselor didn't have much experience. It's important to find someone qualified. In the end it's up to the patient to work their way out of things, a counselor can only listen and help guide the way.
