One this is for sure, Warren is no Jim Delaney. I doubt if Jim Delaney would have cancelled the season. Still if he had, he had the clout to make sure all the other conferences were in line to do so also. I really believe that Warren was under the impression that if he cancelled the season for the Big Ten, all the others would do the same. He was wrong, He does not have Jim's leadership ability. 

Comment 17 Aug 2020

Nothing that Warren and the Big Ten Presidents have done make sense. When they cancelled all out of conference games, my thought was how can those games be more dangerous health wise than just playing in conference games. Then How can playing Big Ten teams be more dangerous health wise than all the conferences that have not cancelled their seasons? 

I signed the petition as it can not hurt to do so. It is saying at least that the decision to cancel the season was totally wrong from the parents', the players' and the fans' perspective.

I don't know about you but if the season is cancelled, I have a backup plan. In this century the Buckeyes have: beaten ttun 17 times, won playoff and two national championships and won conference title games. That is over 20 glorious victories that I plan on revisiting, one each Saturday from September through January (if youtube has them all). Then I hope the powers to be will take this fall season and move it to spring where hopefully a vaccine will have been developed.

Comment 09 Jul 2020

What, playing non-conference teams is more dangerous health wise than playing conference teams? This decision simply does not make sense. If OSU just suspended summer workouts because of the number of athletes that have tested positive for covid-19with all the safe processes in place, what do they plan to do in three weeks when the team is together for fall practices and there is physical contact?  I think all they are doing is buying time. 

Comment 16 Feb 2020

I did not see this game, but I did sit through Tampa Bay and Seattle game. I do realize that the players are still going through growing pains as they come together as a team. Still most of the players have played on an NFL team even if it was on a scout team. I had two quick impressions. One there is no excuse for both QB's missing wide open receivers. Second, the offensive line play on both teams was so bad that 
Betty White as a linebacker could have walked through and pressured the running backs and qb's. Still, some of the rule changes are interesting such as the red hat official, the punting rules and the extra point rules after a TD.

Being a college football official is a part time job. Once an official has lost his integrity, the league supervisor no longer owes any loyalty to the official but to the reputation of the conference and the insistence of fair play and objectivity. If I were the supervisor of officials, I would have no problem in releasing those responsible for an  obvious bias  determining the outcome of the game. But then this is SEC and I will be shocked if the league takes any steps or makes any comment.

Comment 18 Dec 2019

Gene Smith has stated that the two year commitment is not in any contract for assistants. So my question is: does any Div 1 school have a term of years in its contract for assistant coaches?  On a side note, this is not an unusual problem for OSU. Did not Woody take pride in the number of his assistants that went on to greater things? 

Comment 10 Dec 2019

I, too, have moved on: beat Clemson. But one last comment on the committee's final decision. While I heard many times that LSU was more dominate in their championship game than what the Buckeyes were, I heard nothing that maybe Wisconsin played harder for their championship than Georgia did in theirs. Every committee member failed in their duty if they based the seeding on one game.

Comment 06 Dec 2019

Hurts them no more than the Buckeyes having to compete for recruits with Notre Dame, MSU, UM, Pitt, PSU. All these teams are in close proximity and for the most part going after the same high school stars in the midwest. 

Comment 03 Dec 2019

I do not pay any attention to what traditions ttun has regarding the rivalry, The Buckeyes have the gold pants, the countdown clock, that song (don't give a damn for the whole state of ...). Since there has been talk about the Buckeyes taking the rivalry more seriously than ttun, besides their arrogance and their before the forward pass era victories, what traditions do they have?

Comment 02 Dec 2019

Woodson indicated that the rivalry is a "way of life" for the Buckeyes but not for Michigan as they need to get back to it. But the DL player indicated that they knew every play that OSU runs. Seems to me that they prepared for the game since their loss in 2018. When players and coaches spend 12 months preparing for one team, that is a way of life. 

Comment 30 Nov 2019

i don't buy the idea that -ichgan doesn't take it seriously. When Bo was first hired at TTUN, his famous line to his assistants was" We were hired for one thing only and that is to beat Ohio State" . Harbaugh, being a former qb for that team knows the rivalry because he lived it. And There is no doubt in my mine that when he was hired he was given three mandates: number one, beat OSU, number two win the Big Ten, number three win a NC. And I remember Harbaugh saying at the beginning of this season that he was going to devote time in each practice preparing for the Buckeyes. When a team loses, it is too easy to say that they did not take the game seriously. 

Comment 10 Nov 2019

Not sure where to rank any Big Ten team other than the Buckeyes who have dominated everyone. Yes Minnesota is undefeated, but the West teams all seem to have many flaws. PSU has  looked good but they now have a loss and could have two other ones if they had lost close games against Pitt and Mich. Seems to me that they have some issues. Mich has a couple of losses. Their DC has stated that Mich is just now hitting their stride. My response to that is that Buckeyes are also just hitting their stride. Scary. 

Comment 06 Nov 2019

Sorry but what the heck did these players and coaches do during the preseason practices? This is about as ugly of 20 minutes of basket ball  as I have seen from a Buckeye team. No chemistry on this team at all. 

Comment 06 Nov 2019

Weekly rankings were only important prior to 1998 and the BCS era as it was the pollsters who were the ones who determined who the national champion was going to be. Since then, the only poll that matters is the last one. The rest during the season is only to give a 7 day bragging right to certain fans. I will get excited only after the last league championship game is played and the only poll that matters will be the last one two days later. Win and the Bucks are in, lose and let the arguments begin.
