Who is the next commitment? Between the time you record and the time RPW is aired, we might have an answer to that questions. : )
Good point about the H1N1 hysteria of 2009. If you recall, the early #'s had a mortality rate of 6%.
When they went back later, they decided it had been UNDER 0.2%
That is almost certainly what is going to happen here. Coronavirus has been around for as long as we have knows about germs. This strain is just different. Less contagious that influenza, but more deadly... not sure yet HOW much more, but I don't think we should engage in mass hysteria for influenza, H1N1, or Covid-19.
I can prevent more deaths... let's lower the speed limit from 70 to 30 mph. How many people die going 30 mph?
Why don't we do that, too?
Yes, it can be taken away in the blink of an eye.
That's why we should live life... not cower in fear in our homes. This is paranoia hysteria. The powers that be are afraid that if even one death comes back on them, they will be OUT.
5 cases in Ohio, but we're closing Ohio already? For an illness with a death rate of about 1% -- and that 1% are virtually all people with compromised immune systems, respiratory issues, or comorbidities. THOSE people should stay home.
This is ludicrous. I don't care about a basketball tournament. But our economy is tanking because of fear alone.
Could you look at the Oregon returning roster and talk about that game? And maybe talk about its importance for setting the national perception of the respective conferences?
And perhaps do something similar for other inter conference matchups that might be played early this Fall.
"I am fascinated by the NCAA's Transfer Portal for so, so many reasons, not the least of which is that it has a name taken from Star Trek "
Uh, I don't remember a "transfer portal" in Star Trek. They had a teleporter.
Did you see Okudah's whiff on J. Taylor's first series TD run? Looked like he wanted no part of him.
I was there.... I was 34. Hammed it up for the TV. My only national TV "appearance" to date. : )
1982 Ohio State hosting U of M... Tim Spencer's last home game. Anthony Carter was stifled. Bucks won!!

Is that from the episode Tomorrow is Yesterday where Kirk finds out they have gone back in time to 1968?
Kyle, you mentioned switching to nickel and dime in the second half, but what part of the success of the pass defense to turn things around in the second half was due to a switch from zone to man-to-man on a more regular basis?
Three yards is the legal limit.
He is allowed to be three yards downfield on pass plays. It looks like he was at the ten, and the ball was snapped at the 12 yard line. So it was legal. But that is why Pat Fitzgerald called this rule "The purest form of communism." As a defensive player, he believes the rules are becoming all about increasing offensive production. And he's right, IMO.
Yeah, I always oil up my arms before I bro shake.
Does anybody know HOW this was discovered? Was it self-reported by Chase?
Maryland: zero... OSU: whatever Ryan Day is in the mood for.
I understand Fick's position here. If you put all of your eggs into an emotional basket and lose big... how do you pick up the pieces?
If it was the last game of the regular season, I could understand hyping this game up from the underdog's perspective, but I understand why Fickel chose not to do so.
You are correct. Coop did not start out treating it like any other game. But after being frustrated with losing, he thought that perhaps too m much pressure was on his team and to let them play loose, he tried to downplay the Game.
Like switching overnight hotels to change your luck, that idea failed too. So you are right, Coop only did that "play it down" thing once or twice IIRC.
Colin: the play where Bowen appears to get beat -- that was zone blocking... each O lineman moves to his right at the snap.
The RT (Bowen) does so, expecting a double team with Davis on the end... then Bowen will go to the next level and seal the edge.
HOWEVER, the guard (Davis) double teams the tackle instead, perhaps with the anticipation of going to the next level himself or perhaps he just can't get to the end because of the defensive tackles movements. So the end slips past Bowen because he thought he had help.
So we might say "Bowen was beat", I think there was just a miscommunication there more likely. Not sure who messed up.
I logged on to point that out. He's clearly not even looking downfield... he's just upset that Sims didn't throw it to a wide-open Cooper.
The BIG league office apologized for that travesty.... lotta good that does anybody.
I agree with Meyer's angst there, but he should have shown the same passion in addressing the myriad of stupid penalties his teams committed during his tenure. The above stats show a lack of discipline and, I believe, a poor attitude toward stopping them.
fiance with one e is a man who is engaged... fiancee is a woman.
Kyle, they say it takes a year to put a new offensive system in and have it humming. Do you think that is the kind of time frame we're talking here or do you think UM can come out guns blazing?
