I think it's ironic that everyone who thinks its no big deal aren't the ones who are going to be making the decisions as to whether or not there will be sports. So, again, go hit the bars but don't also then complain when we further delay getting back to "normal" with sports.

I'm not putting my specific views out there. That said, if teams keep getting 10, 20, 30 positive tests at a time - the powers that be are going to shut it all down and there won't be a season. Conference commisioners have already said that the health and well being of the student athletes is the most important thing. I can't seem them doing an about face and saying, "fuck it, let's play".

I'd really like to hear more about this.  No way that there isn't "room" for him, even if all the reported mental health issues that were 100% accurate.  He's not the type of player you just push out because they were having personal issues, especially in today's climate.

Agreed on all points.  2015 might have been Urban's most talented team in his entire coaching career.  Too many cooks in the kitchen, too much indecision, too much "kicking each other in the nuts" as the 11W staff put it.  Braxton at H made things over-complicated and Urban's loyalty to him forced him to try to give Braxton X amount of touches per game and it really slowed down the rest of the offense.

I was at the Hawaii and Northern Illinois games that season (week 2 and 3) and they were both pretty ugly.  Yes, Hawaii was a 38-0 game, but IIRC there was a fumble return TD late and some other factors that made it seem better than it was.  It was a straight up ugly display by the offense.  Same thing the following week - only a 7 point win against NIU - tied 10-10 at the half, 5 turnovers and needed a Darron Lee pick 6 to seal the deal.  

A team with JT Barrett, Cardale Jones, Braxton Miller, Zeke Elliott, Curtis Samuel, Michael Thomas, Jalin Marshall, Nick Vannett etc. should not score 13 points against a MAC school.

I'm not sure now is the time to tell anyone to "shut their mouth" when their communities are being impacted.  Yes, 11W has a no politics policy which I will adhere to, but someone's personal accounts are their personal accounts.  

One thing I am absolutely 100% sure about is the coaching staff, Pantoni, etc. have their arms around the situation.  They definitely aren't going to bail on a player who is speaking out and supporting a cause they are passionate about.  I don't know what he posted and I don't care because I don't follow #teens on social media - but the correct response isn't "people need to learn to keep their mouth shut".

Odyssey's are very nice. I used to be on the no mini van squad but it doesn't feel like you are driving a van at all. Real smooth, ton of safety features and have never had an issue with Hondas service. We have a 2018 Odyssey Ex-l plus nav and rear entertainment for the kids. Going to paying cash to buy it when our lease expires at the end of this year because it has been such a solid experience.

Fair thee well, Red Rocket.  I enjoyed parts of his tenure, but ultimately couldn't get it done under the bright lights.  Primetime Bad Andy was as bad as it got.  

Going to ride or die this season with Joe B. and (probably) lock up another high draft pick next year.  I'm hoping the Oline can keep him healthy.

Well if TTUN's focus on in the classroom instruction and academics is as strong as they all like to tout, Shea should have no problem utilizing his degree for a long term, successful career in the real world.
