Any kind of low impact cardio will be great for your health, and a bike or swimming (mentioned by someone already) would be great choices. Your diet, however, will have a far greater effect on your weight loss. If you can cut calories, especially sugars and high fat foods, you should be able to make it to your goal weight in time. It sounds like you’ve done that already, so keep at it! Of course, eating healthy and unprocessed foods as a general guideline, in addition to cutting calories, will have positive health benefits. Generally, supplements will not do much unless you have a deficiency that you are trying to combat. Save your money.  You’re on the right track.

Sexton is a low level back up on a contending team. If the Cavs have a shot at Morant (almost certainly by trading up) you make the deal and take him. The Cavs should take the best player they can get their hands on and not worry about position. It’s a long road back to relevance for the Cleveland franchise.

At this point, the only evidence we have doesn’t show that Fields can do much. Rumors and reports from practice are not evidence. I hope Fields can learn enough of the offense to run it without having to punt every other series. Also, I hope he can improve throwing the ball so that we don’t have a return to the Braxton Miller QB/RB situation. I can’t get myself excited about it, honestly. He’s sub-par right now, and has a ton to learn in addition to refining his passing skills. I think he can keep us in games by not turning the ball over, early in the season. I’m not sure how fast or to what extent the growth will occur as the team gets into the meat of the season, but I hope it comes. I sort of expect for Fields a season similar to what we saw from Braxton as a freshman. Fields isn’t the same kind of athlete, but he can run for sure. I am hopeful he can pick up the passing game steadily through fall camp and the season, and we are in contention for a B1G championship game appearance.

If they will all three commit, I would accept and not waste my time thinking about where they are ranked relative to one another. You just take them.

I learned that as a kid, and I have done that as an adult. It doesn’t always work, especially today. I see it far more often that employees are taken advantage of and thrown under the bus when push comes to shove with “leadership.”  There is no loyalty or appreciation or recognition or reward for hard work and paying dues. The best way to get ahead now is with good peer references and a polished resume. Times change. I learned that the hard way over the last 20 years.

So, According to you, Baldwin = Boekman.  Also, 4-12  shows vastly superior skill to 24-36 (I am going from memory, but it’s close enough)...?

The only thing about Fields that is obviously superior is his HS star rating, and his running ability. As I said, I know he will get somewhat better with time and experience, but nobody knows if he will ever be an accurate college QB. Right now Fields is a poor man’s Braxton Miller, who was basically just an athlete as a freshman. Fields may be great one day, but he is not anywhere near ready for a starting college job right now. Right now, Baldwin is the better QB objectively.  But that isn’t the argument here. It is that despite being a better QB right now, Baldwin barely received lip service about winning the competition. Maybe it would have been smarter to have a real competition? Maybe it would have (eventually) been smarter to roll with Baldwin at the top of the depth chart now, and make Fields take the job away from him?

Fields better get a lot better in a hurry. Right now he is awful. I know people are saying that this has nothing to do with the competition, and everything to do with being homesick, but that is BS. Kids don’t start to get homesick two years into college. This is about the overwhelming (and obvious) sense that Fields is being handed the starting job without having to earn it. It sucks to lose Baldwin, but I don’t blame him if he feels that he will lose out even if he is the superior QB. It seems to be that his fate is already sealed, and I would do the same. He didn’t come here to sit on the bench while the coach recruits transfers to slot in ahead of him. He wants to play, and he should have an outstanding college career somewhere. 

I’m also not saying that Fields won’t or can’t improve, or that he won’t be better in the Fall. Yes, time and experience... But right now Fields looks like shit as a passer, even against our infamous and unsettled defense, and everyone is still falling all over themselves saying he will be the starter in spite of it all. Baldwin didn’t look like Dwayne, but he was a hell of a lot better in the spring game, and knows the offense, and yet he gets no respect. It would have been nice to have someone win the job.

I think he played a big role for so long, that it does seem to a lot of us that JT was at OSU for more than 5 years. It doesn’t need to mean any more than that. I understood, but I guess talking QBs is always going to generate dissent. 

Comment 14 Apr 2019

Fields and Baldwin have a loooong way to go before they will be able to challenge a good defense. There is still time, but until yesterday, I had forgotten about how Haskins and Burrow had a couple years learning the offense under their belts before last year’s competition. That difference was obvious yesterday. I hope there is a lot of film and playbook study over the summer.
