The best part of that scoreboard is that they didn’t fill up the sides with ads. I know that all of the ads help Ohio State athletics balance the budget while providing world class facilities. But I will admit I found it quite refreshing when I went up to the game this year and they had a veteran of the game and it wasn’t sponsored by anyone. The closest thing to an ad in that whole stadium were the Gatorade coolers, and I thought that was kind of cool.
Based on the reading I have done 1.38 million is just the confirmed cases and is not representative of how many people have actually had the virus. Using 80,000 deaths with 1.38 million cases is an astonishing and horrifying 5.79% death rate. Based on a study done in New York using random testing for antibodies it is suspected of 2.7 million people in that state alone have had the virus which would result in a much smaller death rate of .5%.

The FDA is also using a baseline assumption that 5% of the population has already had the virus meaning over 16.4 million people that believe have had it. Source (FierceBiotech.com)
This ScienceMag.org article summarizes a series of other tests from Boston, California, and the Netherlands that explain just how under counted the cases are currently.
Basically you are very right this is not the flu it is way way more contagious and probably more deadly we just cannot say with any certainty how much more deadly. But throwing out that 5.8% death rate is not necessarily accurate and incredibly scary. Sorry for the rant I have tried to stay away from these arguments I just felt these numbers are being hyped up a little too much.
Well I for one would love to see Kaleb come back. I would argue he has been our best player these past 2 years, and while I am excited for the potential that Liddell offers I also love the production that Wesson has offered. I could see him getting a few week long NBA contracts over the next couple seasons before going to Europe with Andre. I think it was awesome to watch them play together and I wish them the best of luck. But I certainly hope Kaleb comes back and gives us one of the best post scores in the Big 10 next year.
As a current student I figured I would give my two cents on why I think the tickets are tickets getting bought. I don't think it's because they are harder to sell in fact the online ones are much easier to sell. Instead of having to meet up in person or mail someone the ticket I can just email it to them or even take a screenshot of the ticket and text it to them. Plus the new tickets don't even say student ticket on them so if you enter in any random gate the usher don't know that you need to show a buckID much less care. Also the non-conference schedule doesn't really matter because students can buy a Big Ten only package. Also for students the hype around the Penn State game is just about the same as for ttun games so when you have Penn State, Michigan State, and Wisconsin on the home schedule that excuse doesn't work that well either.
I think the big reason is the tailgating I have several friends who bought tickets as freshman but don't anymore and instead wake up tailgate and then sleep during the game. Another issue is that as Ohio State becomes a more exclusive school the more of a certain type of student is attracted to it one that cares more about the average ACT score of the student body than the quality of the football or any other sports team. And the out of state scholarships that make Ohio State the cheapest Big Ten school even for out of state students mean I have meet other students that claim their favorite team is Penn State, Northwestern, or even ttun.
It makes sense he is clearly one of the great football minds around. I just hope he is a little better at showing the correct emotions then he was at some of the press conferences he did at Ohio State. I also think this will give him something to do so that he will give Day a good amount of space.
Watch out they have been trying to transition Jim Day to the booth.
And as everyone has stated before me Marty has allowed me to suffer through some rough Reds teams, and has always been great on the call when the they have enjoyed success, I will miss him.
You mean the prodigious Bengals backup quarterback Jeff Driskel?
You are right elite 11 wins don’t really mean much, but hey if they are keeping score you might as well win.
It is pretty funny that we are at 6 with Sheffield and it doesn’t even seem like that big of a deal. We even had people choose to return that we were surprised by like Arnette, Hill, and Fuller. I guess that just shows how lucky we are as Buckeye fans to have that much talent on the team.
It’s hard to believe that he will now be heading into his Senior year it seems like he just got here. I think in the little bits that we got to see him he did show his explosiveness and I could certainly see a comparison between him and Clemsons, Etienne. In that they both seem a little skinny for the position but they are home run hitters with their elite speed and explosiveness. I think this will fit perfectly in Day’s pass first offense because the goal won’t be to wear down the other team with the big bruising running back instead the goal will just be to keep the defense honest and a long run here and there can help with that a lot. I think Dobbins still has a lot to offer next years offense, but I wouldn’t be surprised if McCall takes his fair share of snaps. And also with how often the transfer portal has been talked about recently props to McCall for sticking it out and I hope he gets rewarded for his decision next year.
The negativity in this thread is a little extreme. Arnette definitely has the potential to be a very solid contributor on this team next year in the same way that Terry and Johnnie really stepped up this year, maybe all he needed was a new position coach. So I for one am excited to see how this plays out next year and am glad he is coming back.
I would have a wide recieved attempt a double move at some point instead of just running straight routes. I would in all seriousness establish the bubble screen, I think they loosen up the interior run game, and could allow us to run a fake off of it and send the tight end deep. I would also be stacking my receivers and then having them run the same route at arying depths to give JT a simple read. Finally short crossing routes work, we have the atheletes to outrun Wisconsin so why not get it out of JT's hands and into our playmakers hands.
And also use the running backs.
Id say based off of out of conference schedule, quality wins, detrimental losses, reputation of school, and reputation of conference that there is about a zero percent chance any PAC-12 champ gets in over Ohio State this year.
I'd put Curtis Samuel in over Dixon. If I had to choose from the top 4 or 5 I'd definitely pick group 2. However it gets closer if you go top to bottom down the depth chart, because JT has also had players Elliott, Baugh, Heurmann, Dontre, Dobbins, and Victor.
Can someone explain the Washington State logic? Why would they possibly jump us but USC won't, they both have two losses. Plus Washington State's out of conference is trash.
I believe the San Francisco Giants got a tax break and cheap land but weren't subsidized.
I think at the top the Big Ten is overrated but the middle of the Big Ten is significantly underrated. Someone already mentioned Indianas win over Virginia, plus Purdue drubbed Missouri, and Maryland beat Texas. Minnesota also crushed Oregon State so those are a few out of conference power five wins and I believe all of them were road games.
6 of our top 8 tacklers are DBs, that is not good.
I think that's the first series McLaurin has played in.
I still have hope.
I hope your right we could use a good year from a few wide receivers. I was also very impressed at how well spoken he was in the interview. I am definitely cheering for him.
I think between Dixon, Mack, and Victor there will be plenty breathes of fresh air. And with Wilson leading the offense they should be put in better positions to utilize their speed/size.
First Barnett said this. And then Josh Rosen took another shot at Alabama in his interview with Bleacher Report. Seems like a good day to attack the king.
You mean it's time for me to change my background from Walt's Fiesta Bowl poster?
