Shutting down just makes so little (if any) sense at all. A total fear reaction. The programs fear Tort not the virus. Statistically, there isn't a reason to postpone or cancel the season(s) at any level. Yet they have, will or may do so all over the nation. Check "World-O-Meter". Look at the numbers. With the comprehensive plans in place they've done (more than) what is necessary to fulfill "an overabundance of caution". Only 5% of our total population has been (diagnosed/reported as) "infected". They talk of stopping or slowing the rate of infection as a reason but we're past that point of effectiveness. The majority of deaths, which are horrible to EACH impacted family/friends group, are in 4 States. The vast majority (of the tiny minority) of "infected" either are asymptomatic or just "get sick" for while. Anyone's "my friend/family" anecdote aside, NOTHING statistically warrants postponement or cancellation of ANY of these Fall Sports. Not College, Not HS, not youth programs. "Let the boys play!" (Coach Boone in Remember the Titans).
Spath is correct less often than a broken clock. :-D
Beating TTUN twice would be really fun though
Ol' "guarantee" ought to hire him to coach RBs. Perfect fit for where they are currently. LOL!
Another one thing(?) Reverse the Faculty Committee vote in 1961. Bucks win the Rose Bowl and undisputed Natty :-)
My one thing: I'd have given Baschnagel the TD in '74. I was a Scout usher at the game. Watching all the grown Buckeye fans weeping as they exited was freaky to my 13 year old self.
2016: 13th ranked NCAA offense, 39.4 points per game, 459 yards per game.
2015: 78th ranked NCAA offense, 35.7 points per game, 434 yards per game.
Couple of, amazingly to those not Buckeye fans, "off" or "underacheving years".
PS How many other Unis would cheat (or pay) to have those types of "bad years"? LOL!!!
"Dawning" leather helmets LOL! You just kill me some times :-D
Love your content. Consider donning a thesaurus viewer ;-)
Now Bert might go to CU LOL!!! The carousel is always insane.
Location wise Boulder is FAR superior to Lansing area.
Might be able to recruit better as MSU. Cost of Living is higher in Boulder but it is just dang gorgeous there. Better weather in CO. MUCH less "expectations" in CO. Coaches want challenges and progress in career in my experience. Its pretty lateral though. MSU has no claim to being better than CU, unless you leverage Basketball. MSU definitely better then :-D
Good Luck to you young man! You'll be a star more likely where ever you go with that lineage. Hard to compete in the boatload of talent sometimes. Wishing White well.
Those old 'Coop boys are all on the "I don't favor Ohio State" line of BS. They're jealous that, as good as Cooper could be (especially recruiting) he could never dominate as The Senator, Urban and maybe now Day have. I think that's it. Objectivity isn't leaning over backwards to give an impression of impartiality. Listen to any of those old Coop boy commentators. Watch, win the natty and the bandwagon will break from those guys jumping on it to catch reflected glory LOL!
The Cheese boys would beat UGA. They lost to S. Carolina. Yeah UW lost to Illinois but the Illini are at least bowling.
It isn't "stupid" to want to take down the best available. Its what the Buckeyes can do. It is "stupid" to think that wanting to beat the best is "stupid".
To cement the legendary season of course :-)
"According to Danielson", makes me disregard it entirely.
Down by 14 at the half, perhaps I got my "tougher road" wish too soon. Hopefully we'll adjust well for the second half.
One of those old Coop guys who resents the Senator and Urban reaching levels that Coop just couldn't get done. Coop could recruit. You've got to give him that. His boys however know the next two won national titles.
Look at the bounces/breaks ratio in EVERY game Franklin has kept close with us. It is just AMAZING, they got every bounce, every call, every bit of momentum of fortune for nearly the entire 3rd quarter. Yet we throttled them, because Mr. Franklin. We are better than you :-). Time to roll over some stinky varmints north of Columbus. Go Bucks!!!
Ok! I'm ALL on board now. Answered some real questions I had about the character of this team and staff. They aren't just g*d-like talent and technocrats. We got us some Budkeye FOOTBALL playahs! Time to stomp the dreams of the khaki-led minions of the cold and dark north. Go Bucks!!!
Get Better Tua!
His fragility has been shown over 2 seasons now.
Like hating a crippled puppy. I'm sure Schiano (sp?) will return them to bowl level mediocrity and we'll have to adjust to only beating them by 4-6 TDs in the next few years. heheh.
It is often times simply upbringing now-a-days. You see it WAY too much in youth sports (which I've coached 30 years). Today parents and too many coaches don't teach beyond *win* and *you are the greatest*. Teach kids to work to win and to compete but also how to handle adversity (personal) with patience and even more hard work. Also we seem to not emphasize the integrity aspects associated with commitment and keeping your word. Kids are taught to seek only their own gratification and satisfaction too much. Character is forged in the crucible of adversity.
The original "star" "bullet". Leroy Keyes STILL hasn't recovered LOL! Jack..all time great.
