I always like playing the full game. I can't stand it when I'm playing D only (I like to play MLB in 4-2-5 or 4-3 Under) and you make a good stop and all of a sudden you're back on the field on your own 5 after an interception or big return. That Defensive Coordinator mode is too real for me.

I haven't been spending any time on video games lately but I think it might be time to start the ritual offseason dynasty!

Man I should start doing that on recruiting! I just skip all the recruiting but it makes dynasties less fun after 5 seasons when I don't really know the players or have any control over who I get. But all that scouting and note-taking and shit... I guess it's just not the fun part for me lol. I think next dynasty I'll just edit the roster after auto-recruiting so make the recruits however I want lol.

I don't think I ever got to 90 but I often had 60+ sacks NCAA 2009 LOLB, I think Andrew Sweat or Ross Homan, running Over Storm Blitz out of 4-3 every single play. I try to resist using the same play every time but you do that and you get about -50 rush yds allowed per game.

They still haven't chopped up targeting penalties into voluntary/involuntary manslaughter charges, but removing the awkward perp walk is...a good start?

I do sense the sarcasm, but I still feel compelled to say this is NOT a good start, it's a meaningless gesture that does nothing to fix the problem, and in fact may serve to minimize it going forwards.

marking the only time in the decade other than 2011 that Ohio State lost two straight games.

God, we're a spoiled fanbase. I agree with the list, but I will say 2019 is really neck and neck with 2014 for me. Crap end but that was the most fun I've ever had watching football on a week to week basis.

I totally agree. I can't imagine the pressure a gay football or basketball player would feel to remain closeted. I was proud to be a Sun Devil around the time Sarafin came out.

I really did like how the documentary included competing perspectives on this and other issues. You certainly can't have it both ways, but there are two sides who each think their way is the way it was.

Comment 09 Jan 2020

Speaking of Dobbins, I think having his foot nearly ripped off in the pile was a HUGE factor in this game. Teague couldn't fill in at the same elite level, so Dobbins had to play clearly hurt, and he just wasn't quite as good after the injury. That's more in line with "dealing with the natural consequences of football" but it really felt to me like if we could run the ball at 100% in that second half we STILL would have won the game even with that litany of forces stacked against us.

That long ass replay only needed to be 10 seconds to see that his hand was down and it completely killed our momentum. It would have been better if they just moved on without replay. Buckeyes offense was churning and would have made the yards up with a better chance at the end zone. Replay is seriously broken and is having huge consequences on games.

Fields' knee has healed more than they're letting on. He moves the chains multiple times and Dobbins is a workhorse, pulling away more frequently in the second half. Wilson and Olave make some key catches but this game is about #1 and #2 dominating with their legs. Defense has a hard time containing Clemson leading to some sweating, but the O shows their chips and Buckeyes win 48-31.
