I will watch the games I want to watch if they are on BTN, ESPN, FOX or any other channel I have in my cable package. I pretty much don't watch any of the sports shows, just games.
I was thinking this schedule might be easier than Clemson's then I looked it up using AP preseason when Big 10 and PAC were still ranked. 8 PSU and 15 TTUN still on the schedule while Clemson just has 11 ND. Lost #6 Oregon of the original schedule and #24 Iowa off the revised. Although Clemson has 2 more games, the Citadel is one so they have one more P5 game.
The Big 10 really struck back at Nebraska hard. Oh well, I hope they start putting it together after the first week.
At this point he should probably go FCS.
Rutgers or MD cancelling would not hurt OSU if undefeated, they would still end up with more victories that OK probably and Clemson.
I think he would stay at OSU for awhile. New OSU Prez seems very supportive of sports, so when Gene Smith retires I would think the next AD would be supportive. Day coached 2 years in NFL and his mentor is Chip Kelly so he may get to hear lots of the downside of NFL coaching (e.g., owners, salary caps, GMs), especially compared to a college job like OSU with top level support. Although some coaches don't like recruiting, Day seems to be so awesome at it I would be amazed he found it tiresome. He moved around a ton before coming to OSU, his wife sounded like she was looking forward to not moving for awhile.
Welcome back big fella. Enjoyed his interview with Barton the other day. Now just need Wade to come back and rain on Sunshine's parade.
If there is an undefeated SEC, Clemson, and OU, along with undefeated OSU, and the 1 loss SEC runner up lost a close SEC CC game, the logical team to bounce is OU because of the weakness of the Big 12 and OU getting drilled in recent CFP games. This assumes OSU season looks more like 2019, and not like 2015 without MSU loss where they kept eking out close wins. I still doubt the committee would bounce an undefeated OU.
Too lazy to look up but is Big 10 criteria of 5% of player testing positive based on the 85 on scholarship, or include walk on players which has got to be close to 120. So if 6 RS or walk on players go to a party near the end of the season and catch Covid does OSU have to forfeit TTUN, Big 10 title games and miss playoffs? Or can CFP vote OSU in at 7-2 because when healthy OSU was ranked #1 or #2? Weird year.
On the other hand, since its based on HS player rankings its never going to reflect actual roster strength, just what the players on a team were supposed to progress to coming out of HS. But OSU at 1 in 2018 lost to Purdue, which was I think 72.
If they think they will take at least 6 weeks to get ready and Wisconsin is claiming 3 weeks, I'm assuming the PAC teams weren't practicing?
I have thought the same thing, but that involves a lot of guess work since you have to estimate who is going to play vs RS. But as a rough barometer it still is interesting to see who over or under achieves compared to the their supposed talent level.
I am conflicted. If Big 10 starts up so OSU can play for a Natty, part of me would enjoy TTUN sitting out and razzing on their fans I know while they slide further to irrelevance, but I also want to see the annual ass kicking. I guess I would not worry and enjoy it either way.
Barry Alverez says Wisconsin can play in 3 weeks, so I am insanely still hoping for October 10th. https://www.nbcsports.com/northwest/oregon-ducks/wisconsin-ad-big-ten-football-we-could-have-our-team-ready-3-weeks
Unfortunately its almost compelling/addicting at this point. I know I should stop, but I can't.
Alright for the big fella. Little disappointed he did not take it back so I could enjoy Washington owning the division for one week.
I wonder how many other West Coast games would have been affected by the fires in a non Covid fall?
I thought Miller was about 3rd Pro QB when he committed and has fallen a bit due to injuries. With OSU conditioning and O-line no reason to think he can't be the guy. It may be a great competition. LSU will probably mail Joe Burrow football cards to whomever gets beat out.
Chase looked better than his stats, also forced an interception by hitting the QB and the ball floating up in the middle of the field, but offsides called it back. Philly's line was banged up so maybe not the best test. Washington got 8 sacks. Haskins did start slow, but with top 3 RB's and 2 of 4 tops receivers gone with a new offense and no preseason, the offense was a pleasant surprise. Saw Baugh on a number of plays as well. After their secondary woke up, Washington looked good. Not sure if that's because Philly is so banged up.
So the reports are the Saturday meeting went well, also they may allow some schools to opt out of fall which might keep them from voting no. At least the ESPN and Philly Inquirer articles sound hopeful. Of course, Sir Yacht would carry more weight.
Hope he gets the chance to come back for that Natty, has a hell of pro career and life. Glad he is still able to come back, tomorrow might be the right call made for the first time in a month of this crap.
The full 10 minute clip with all 4 coaches is worth a listen. First minute 20 seconds about Big 10 subcommittee mtg with medical meeting with 8 presidents. The coaches make a good case for transparency, and they should play if its safe, and give examples on why its safe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seCzYfLGwG0
I started home brewing in 1995 just to be ready for Covid. I am that far ahead of my time.
