I have rewatched the interviews several times.......

1. Gene Smith is a follower and has very little upstairs which would make him true leader material.  He was selected and has been retained by OSU because of his willingness to follow blindly 

2. Kevin Warren is a smart guy but seems very unprepared for the diversity of thought and disparity of passion and the challenges it brings.  It seems like he would prefer parity over a dominant team or two leading the pack......the NFL model

3. Nebraska is the only program so far who is signaling publicly it will seek an alternative to this

4.  The universities are insisting on secrecy for some reason.  This is going to be challenged. More than the BigTen vote in 1974. 

5. the B1G puts a muzzle on the BTN analysts.  Revsine tried to press Warren but it appeared scripted as he quickly backed off.  It will be interesting when one of these guys gets laid off to hear what he truly thinks

6. if there is football played in the B12/ACC/SEC this year and no players drop dead during the season directly from Covid, the destruction of OSU Football will be significant.  We will have to choose between excellence or the B1G.  Simple as that. 
 

7. it seems there is something nefarious here.  Is it pure politics to shut down the system to harm Trump? Is it a deliberate poison pill to send a message of some sort to athletes?

9.  I love Day and Frost.

The FBI keeps stats like this.  Like I said before, the facts are the facts and it is the underlying conditions of why these people are getting arrest at a significantly higher rate.  I would assume that much of it is societal issues.  But I suspect that some of it is personal / family / accountability issues as well.  
 

the evil cop is a totally different issue which I believe is a faster fix. Addressing  The blue line of silence plus better screening plus a general heightened awareness of the need to fix this horrible problem will drive needless and evil deaths down.....we all hope.

It boggles my mind that you use some stats that aren’t directly relevant.  Like it or not, Blacks are more likely to commit crimes and thus be in confrontational situations with police.  Of course they are going to be involved in more shootings.  It is sad but true.  It is also sad but true that Blacks are much more likely to be murdered by other Blacks than by Police.....by a factor of 10x

in my opinion the root of the problem is why are Blacks committing more crime?  I mean that out of love as I believe Blacks or Whites or Asians or whatever are not predisposed by nature to commit crimes.  Obviously, Blacks have high poverty rates, low Fatherhood participation rates, and are forced to live in shitty environments too often.  If we can solve those problems then I truly believe that the race problems are mostly eradicated.  
 

of course to ever get to where all sides trust each other, we must be vigilant at rooting out racists who clearly live among us at rates that are uncomfortably high for most. We can start with the Police like the evil Chauvin in Minneapolis.....and the devils who did not restrain him

Just think .  Brendon White would never have started a game this season had it not been for a targeting call.  

Coaches were clinging to their old depth chart while White was wasting away on the bench.  I wonder how many other deserving players are wasting away on the bench.....linebacker comes to mind

1.  Drake is destroying the James Cancer Research Center by removing funds they’ve generated and diverting them to other medical areas.  So please don’t tell me he’s “killing it”, Mrs. Drake

2.  Florida State actually is getting more research dollars than ever from Federal grants after the Jameis Winston scandal......the one in which a player was accused of rape by a current student......dna samples were taken .....police actively sought to damage the case

3.  The university completely kicked the entire issue over to the police which they said was all the had to do 

FSU flipped the media the bird and was rewarded for it

OSU shows weakness and gets crucified 

if it drags on further, I’d resign and go coach ND or anywhere else

Byars was a good basketball player but not Power 5 good.  He and Cris Carter did dominate the intramural circuit in 83 and 84.  Carter was definitely big time in hoops.  Louisville offered him a full ride to play BB.  

I played intramural against Byars and had to guard him.  He pushed me all over the place with his huge butt and thighs.  Amazing strength down low.  He could easily dunk it as well.  Good ball handler.  His hands were just so huge too.  Palmed the ball like Jordan.  

The good ole days of playing in Larkins Hall and Jesse Owens North  I played with Tupa , Clift, Hoak, and Greg Anderson.  Tupa was a helluva player as well.
