I would add, with skydiving/bungee jumping, if someone gets injured, it's usually just the participant (assuming they don't land on someone). With covid19, people are not only putting their own health/lives at risk, but the health/lives of everyone with whom they come in contact. If someone doesn't understand that and appreciate the difference, they are a selfish individual.

Yeah, for a while it has seemed like the rivalry means more to Ohio State than TSUN. If I recall correctly, that was pretty evident from the HBO documentary on the rivalry from several years ago. And now that they've been on the wrong side of the result virtually every year this century, they're beginning to talk about having to take it more seriously.....

Yup, me too. I even saw INXS in concert at Blossom Music Center (outside Cleveland). That was a loooooong time ago....

I don't know why you're getting shit for your comment. I did not read your comment as an accusation or a rumor, only as one possibility -- and frankly, the first thing that popped into my head when I read his statement as well. 

ETA: There are plenty of comments below this one that are far more accusatory about marital misconduct, and those are upvoted with 1 or no DVs. I don't know why yours is the one post that got crapped on.

Or it could be that he's not getting these HC jobs because his defense was pretty bad this year. They had been a top 10 squad (based on defensive S&P+) for several years, then this year dropped to 37th -- which is up from the mid-season (post-Purdue) ranking of 49th. And putting the analytics aside, his squad got LIT. UP. on multiple occasions this season, breaking several school records (and not the good kind).

the committee got it right, so might as well accept the reality and play up the invite, cuz well, that's the girl you are going to the dance with, not the prettier one in the corner you wish you were going with.  

Well, that's just your opinion (and mine too TBH). But I think your comment fails to take into account what the Commish's job is, and that is (at least in part) to stump for its members. As Ramzy pointed out, he's supposed to be politicking and getting OSU the best chance of getting into the CFP. Instead, he sat on his hands so that he could join the Buckeyes in Pasadena. Maybe any politicking would have been unsuccessful, but that doesn't mean you don't try. Sankey or Slive would have raised holy hell if it were even hinted at that a 1-loss SEC champ would be left out of the CFP. If you hire a lawyer to represent you in a murder trial, you don't expect him to just say "well, their evidence is pretty good, so I guess you might be convicted" -- you expect him to strenuously defend you. At the end of the day, Delany put himself and his desires above those of the conference.

You must be new here....

(A bit of history: Way back in the day, when TH roamed Ohio Stadium sidelines and an upstart named DJ Byrnes was the Skully author, it was discovered that Herman was, in fact, a member of Mensa, which morphed on 11W into Herman being the founder of Mensa. It was a recurring joke, such that whenever Herman was mentioned, it was near mandatory to also mention his founding of Mensa.)

Ttun, Penn State, and Bama are not realistic landing spots for UFM. If he returns to CFB coaching, ND is the most likely spot, or maybe a program like USC.
