I know it's pretty much impossible to keep stuff from the media these days, but really wish this wouldn't come out until he took the much more accurate PCR test.  I mean half the people out there still think Saban had Covid because they don't bother or don't want to follow up.

Comment 25 Oct 2020

This is the lowest I've seen it anywhere.  Everywhere else has it at 10 or 10.5.  I think the spread could easily end up at 13.5 because remember the spread is simply set to try to get similar amounts of money on both sides.  People are going to be all over betting OSU at 8 and even at 10/10.5 which is definitely going to move the spread.  If you can get this thing at 8 I would suggest hitting it hard.

Maryland, Michigan State and Illinois are just horrendous.  Rutgers, while definitely better than they've been in years, is still probably only a 3 win at most team.  Meaning OSU really only has 4 teams with a pulse on their schedule and just beat one of them by 35 points.

I bring this up for two reasons.  Number one is because I believe this team is more playing against itself than their opponent from week-to-week.  It is crucial to improve from week-to-week and work on fixes for any areas that are deemed not up to standard.  Number two is this team simply cannot afford an upset loss.  We all already knew this before the season started, but given the shortened schedule and the fact that half the games are against considerably bad teams a loss almost assuredly leaves our Buckeyes unable to reach their ultimate goal.

Assuming our Buckeyes get the job done this is going to come down to the final three games: Wisconsin then Alabama and Clemson in some order.  Take it one game at a time, continue to improve and come late December be ready for the big boys.

Go Bucks!

This is an absolute wild assumption with no basis in reality.  Having fans at games helped spread the coronavirus amongst a team in which they had absolutely zero close interaction with?  That is COVID fear-mongering at its finest.

Comment 10 Oct 2020

I honestly thought to myself before the kick that it had a better chance of ending in a Miami touchdown than him making the field goal.  If I thought that how in the hell did Dabo not think that?

Comment 10 Oct 2020

That Oklahoma-Texas game reminded me of watching like Purdue-Indiana.  Teams that hate each other, playing a close game and they both absolutely suck.

Comment 04 Oct 2020

They are a team that pretty much just goes through the motions against teams like Virginia, Wake Forest and basically the entirety of their conference.  You give them a primetime game that they know everyone will be watching against an overrated Miami team that gave up 34 points to Louisville?  I personally think it's going to get ugly.  I would imagine it may look similar to the Bama vs. Texas A&M game today.

Comment 03 Oct 2020

Wait, Trotwood you aren't suggesting that Texas would try to go after Ryan Day are you?  That would be comical.  Coach Day may use it to get himself a little pay raise, but he wouldn't realistically even pick up the phone if Texas called.

Comment 03 Oct 2020

Florida State is down 14-0 to Jacksonville State.  I assume they will probably come back and win, but my god how bad can a team be?

Comment 03 Oct 2020

I would think an undefeated Alabama is pretty much a lock to get the #1 seed.  They would have the most thorough (in quantity and quality) body of work.  Ohio State could probably match them in quality, but not quantity.  Clemson could match them in quantity, but not quality.

Basically it means we would get Clemson in the semis.  Again.  Time to change the narrative.

Comment 27 Sep 2020

Below is a very good article on this topic.  It sounds like the Big Ten will be doing some sort of dashboard, but it remains to be seen if that dashboard will be public and, even if it is, what information would be provided to the public.  It certainly will not give information on specific players, but information on teams as a whole or the conference as a whole may be available.

Comment 27 Sep 2020

Fans would definitely complain about this.  That's why the Big Ten should actually get ahead of something for once and say 20-25% capacity at all stadiums for the entirety of the season and be done with it.  If a school and or state chooses on their own to not allow fans than that's fine, but at least everyone would be on equal footing for the whole season as far as the Big Ten is concerned.

Comment 27 Sep 2020

Yeah this makes no sense to me.  If you have a problem with 100% capacity and no face masks in restaurants than don't go to restaurants.  Problem solved!

Comment 26 Sep 2020

It would be ridiculous to not allow at least 25% fan capacity at games.  However, that means I fully expect the Big Ten will make the incorrect decision because the conference leaders are morons.

If Family A is quarantining how could they be at a football game?
