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.

So true..I work in a large warehouse with over 125 people so I wont go around people who are high risk because if I have covid I would probably have few symptoms and could spread it without knowing it but people need to understand u cant catch it walking by someone in a store..from what I read it has to be prolonged contact and the media will not let this go..all on mews every commercial not to mention.i have talked to medical professionals who have told me their peers are being pressured to list corona as a contributing factor when a person dies even if there is no evidence..if this is true it's simply perpetuating a non truth which is what I think I happening..corona is there but putting ppl in fearful mode is not doing any good.

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.

I dont know what to think but at the rate this state and country are going we will never open back up. I just found out today a friend of mine was sick with covid for a month..he is recovering and doing better but I am of the opinion that we cannot shut down the country forever and just stay at home because there is no way any immunity will be built. If you are elderly or unhealtjy..one such thing is obesity..the us is the most obese country in the world u should be at home but as has been shown 80 percent at a minimum may not even know they have the virus so as we get more data on the virus it seems like we need to open up more things and not live in what if fear of what might happen. Sweden did not take hardly any lockdown measures and yet compared to the us their death rate is only slightly higher 22 per 100000 compared to 19 per 100000 in the us. If we dont begin to open up soon we will be in lockdown for another year and yes cases will rise when places begin to open. So looking at the decision of the govt. So far especially in ohio i put the possibility of football in the fall st approximately zero.

The whole team has no confidence on offense at all..kaleb lost all that wt. Still cant jump over a piece of paper and cant move guys down low and as usual there is no emotion from the team...I'll give a pass on that today with kobe...but they never look prepared to play..which is on holtzman or they just can't play which is on holtzman also..u recruited them its ur staffs job to coach them up.. bring back cj Jackson in place of these two ot. Guards..hey DJ ur not In Iowa anymore

Just a good old fashioned ass kicking right now. Josh Allen is ballin out and bill o'Brien looks lost. The Bills.are a great example of how an organization can succeed when u have quality coaching and the egos of the players dont get In the way like the browns.
Comment 07 Dec 2019

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.

Comment 24 Aug 2019

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.

Comment 10 Apr 2019

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.

Comment 09 Apr 2019

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.

Comment 24 Jan 2019

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.
