Am I the only one wondering why the drug test was mentioned in the front page description or really altogether?
Shawnee - my point isn’t Burrow or the transfer coverage, it is the depth and volume of the coverage. It is daily on the main page. One article on the fact he announced transfer and one on the destination would have been sufficient.
A counter to your point, 11W doesn’t follow every graduate as there are a dozen or more each season. They aren’t posting 6 articles on recently transferred Antonio Williams or Wayne Davis. Or we aren’t tracking graduates like Tommy Schutt or Zach Boren.
My comment had nothing to do with who I prefer Burrow or Haskins. Both would have had us in contention for BIG title and CFP.
The coverage itself is good in quality and it is getting page clicks and comments. I guess that is the point but IMO it is overkill.
I cant be the only one thinking this, but is this 11W, an OSU Football site, or the personal webpage of Joe Burrow? I get that he transferred from OSU, but this is easily the 4 or 5th front page story on this subject in the last few weeks. He gone! #offseason
I read dang near every comment here. Why do people keep saying Burrow is the better runner. I don't get it. He ran in mop up duty for one season in blowouts for 2,3,4 yard gains. Am I missing something? Not saying Haskins is the better runner, not at all. Haskins to his credit had an amazing run against MI in the red zone. That doesn't make me believe Haskins is the better runner. I just don't see the evidence that one is superior to the other. Game film shows me Haskins had success in an actual game environment. I don't think we have that on Burrow.
My hot take - no more QB running, just QB scrambling. This looks to be the transition under Day.
I agree Mr. Kingslayer. I think Burrow would be a fine college QB but I haven't seen anything to lead me to believe he is an NFL 1st, 2nd, 3rd rounder. How many great college QBs are there and how many translate to the NFL. Not many. I could see Burrow transferring to Florida, Ohio University, heck, Nebraska and being very good college QB - throwing for 3,500 yards and 30 TDs. Doesn't make you an NFL talent.
I am very concerned about depth, but understand Burrow's decision. I would have been happy with either QB. Haskins excites me more but Burrow would have been a consistent player. Both would have given us the opportunity to play in the playoff this season.
They were really fun to watch last night. More importantly, they looked to be having fun. Watching Love and Hill, or Love and Korver torment Raptor defenders off pick and pops was really entertaining. They have a shot to beat anyone if Smith plays well, Korver is a threat and Love scores 15+.I have a hard time seeing them beating the Warriors or Rockets, but I want them to have a shot at them.
Nance not playing is a head scratcher. I think Lue likes Love at the 5 to spread the floor so they play small ball.
I don’t get what happened to the young guns we brought in. I get Clarkson is streaky, Hood seems off, but I don’t get Nance barely playing.....like 5 minutes.
A couple weeks makes a huge negative difference.
I hope you are somewhat weight bearing or at least will be soon.
Achilles tear here. I feel for you. Watching your calf muscle fade is hard. It is even harder taking a decade to get it back to somewhat normal. I am 1.5 years out from my injury and the calf size between left and right leg is laughable.
Same. My wife actually kept me interested through the first probably 3 episodes. After that, I was hooked. I can see some having problems with the time period. This show is all about family, gambling, liquor running, Irish gangs. If that interests you, stay in the game for a few more episodes. Cillian Murphy as Tommy puts in a great performance.
I had 3-4 separate friends recommend this to me. I put it off for a few years. Really solid binge watching TV. Makes me want to buy a classic suit, smoke a cigar and drink some whiskey.
The music is great, although season 4 has different artists singing Red Right Hand. I didn’t like that.

Fantastic and badass show. Power through the dialogue issues and you have a great show that gets better and better. Season 4 was down right fantastic.
Be right back. I am going to start a Lost rewatch forum.
I did a complete rewatch with my 13 year old. She loved it. It took us like an entire year.
First time around I loved John Locke. Second time, I couldn’t stand the character.
She will always be Kate.
To me, JT is an ideal 3rd QB to have on the roster. Mind of a coach, good guy to help the team prep. Who knows, maybe he will make some strides and become a legit backup. Congrats #16.
Ant Man and Wasp trailer looks super fun!
Marvel, just straight killing it.
Purposely grim. I think that is the point. And focusing on Thanos made the movie great, IMO. It substantiated the entire 10 year project. Without it, you have the CGI evil goat that appeared in Justice League. Develop, respect and fear the big bad. It will make defeating him that more awesome in part 2. Josh Brolin killed it as Thanos. You could see Brolin throughout.
Right. The Steve-Tony reunion will be the pivotal moment of the franchise thus far.
Just got home. It was great. Thor was awesome. The modernization of his character has been remarkable. Rabbit and Tree!
F-Ing Starlord messes the whole thing up.
I was waiting for that big moment when all the heroes work together, but that will be part 2.
Man, I was hoping for some random cameo. Silver Surfer or something.
Do we think the gauntlet is officially destroyed?
Cant wait to see how the 1 in 14 million scenario workouts out.
Chubb was the smart pick
What are the good Big 12 defenses?
I think there are easily a half dozen plus comparisons and so do most of the NFL guys discussing this topic.
Height, on field behavior as you have mentioned. Lets throw in off field behavior, the offensive game plan he played in, poor defenses he played against, his chaos passing tactics, his cockiness continuing to bite him even during the combine, etc.
He did light-up OSU, but lets face it, most QBs did, except Darnold (gasp!). That is the kick in the nuts comment with this entire situation.
It has been said a 1,000 times: Mayfield is Manziel 2.0. I don’t see anything wrong with saying it 1 more time in hopes that someone in the Browns’s front office can hear me.
