Let's just apply basic common sense to this situation. I said two months ago, I saw the possibility of a college football season at zero and I still see at zero if people actually care about the players and their health and the health of their families, not to mention coaches and staff members. If football is played, it is because of the money it brings in, if there is no football, alot of other sports are going to be cancelled because they depend on football for financing. To think this is not true is to be very naive. I believe the only sport at Ohio State that operates with a profit is football and there are 38?? other varsity sports that depend on this program for money. Look at Bowling Green, the buckeyes first opponent, they are guaranteed $1.3 million or so to come get whipped in the shoe. If they don't get that money what do you think is going to happen to their sports programs. You will have club sports and intramurels, that's about it. I see no way football or basketball can be played safely until the virus is under control, which could be 2 years, let's be honest here, our government is about plain and simple freaking clueless and could care less about people. I want to see sports back on but we have to be honest with ourselves do we sacrifice the few for the many or do we care about each individual. What happens if God forbid, a division one football player gets sicks and dies from the covid, what would happen then. This has to be the greatest fear of all ADs and coaches and school presidents. Again, you have to be honest, its actually all about the money, nothing else and who takes all the risks, the players and coaches, but at least the coaches are paid. If I was a division one football player at a prominent school, Alabama, OSU, Texas, etc., I would extra money put away for me for saving the sports programs because in my opinion, that's what this is all about.
The utter paranoia of the governments in almost every state is driving me crazy. You cannot just stay at home, there will probably never be a vaccine and as other people have noted, the economic impact is insane. Open things back up because this hiding in the house in fear is not working. If you, as an individual, don't want to go out, stay the hell home but quit affecting the 99.99 percent of the people who are not going to die from this virus and the 99 percent who are never going to get it and will never show symptoms if they do. And another thing, so people cant attend but the players can play, that's a hypocritical double standard. As usual, this governor, just as Dewine is managing her state by fear, not science. Let people have the choice but don't put us in lock down because it is not necessary.
one of the worst halfs of football i have ever seen. Coaching is just terrible, defense needs to be in zone, not up playing press man with 42 seconds in the half. Just stupid. Does Justin Fields ever know how to throw away the ball. There is no need to blitz, It looks like there was 0 game prep done.
Number 198 on the list is Marquell Parks from Orrville. Scored 63 touchdowns last year as the Riders won the state title. Check out the highlights. This kid is small but I have watched him play in person three times and am of the opinion he can help Ohio State. Like to know what everyone else thinks.
I could be wrong but I doubt Tate ever starts a game at the U. I see him as more of a MAC quarterback, his size is not great, arm strength not great, speed not great at the high d1 level. I hope he improves but I am doubtful, you also have to remember he basically played at a prep school in Nevada, not exactly the hotbed of high school football. It looks like Danny Clark all over to me but at least he was smart enough to never enroll at OSU.
i would put that at 100 percent coming back unless one guy just lies to him. Kaleb Wesson does not fit the NBA as it is played right now very well. There are simply limited true low post players on most teams which limits how many teams could actually draft him. Its good to get information but in no way should he be thinking about going to the NBA, would be lucky to be drafted in the second round. I can tell him what he needs to work on....get in better shape, move your feet better, don't bring ur arms down on defense, etc. It should not take an NBA executive to tell these guys the truth. Unless ur going to be a lottery pick or first round pick, there is no sense in going out unless u look forward to the g league or Europe or Asia because the NBA is not for college players who aren't dominant or have one or two specific skills, which Wesson has neither.
These guys, especially Brazekis, must have lost their minds. He will not be drafted at all, which means its either g league or back to school. I watched him play and for a pro player, he is very very limited. 6 7 , limited athletism, limited quickness, struggles to create his own shot in college, in fact if i was to bet, he will end up playing in Europe next year, This is the exact mistake that numerous osu players made in the past, ross, thomas, etc. simply thinking u are way better than you actually are. All three are getting terrible advice or just dont want to go to class anymore.
i agree 100 percent with the sentiments about Mitchell and her dad and it went to the whole team. The whole team the last two years was me me me. Watching the game tonight and this team with far less talent is right with the number 11 team because they play with more effort than the team gave in the last two years. As a result of Mitchell...??? the coaching staff missed out on the two best players in Ohio last year...Hillman and Miksell who play at Michigan and Maryland and he missed out on two of the best players in Ohio this year, to me this is unacceptable just as it was when Matta missed out consistently on players who went out of state. Need to see vast improvement in McGuff, which I don't think we will see.
