Stay strong, Cruiser! We're all behind you.
I don't know that I've ever seen a 25 yard sack. What was he doing dropping that deep?
It must have been Michigan's genius coaches who allowed them to overcome Army's talent advantage.
1st and 15 on the Michigan 43.
McCaffrey hands off to Zach Charbonet who gains 13 before being tackled out of bounds by Shaun Wade.
2nd and 2 at the Ohio State 44.
What would potentially make more sense would be delaying the season by a month and maybe shortening it by 2-3 games.
Every team gets to keep one OOC game (Oregon for us, naturally) and then either plays their full conference slate or loses 1 of their cross-division matchups (bye, Illinois).
The season still ends around the holidays, but it starts in late September, giving the country more time to recover, and gives universities time to assess whether it's safe to have classes/games.
What these “cure is worse than the disease” takes always seem to miss is that we’re not choosing between an economic depression and saving lives, the economic depression is happening either way, we’re just choosing the economic depression that kills fewer people and doesn’t collapse our healthcare system.
Wow, Texas A&M doubled their player count. That's concerning.
Could we see Henderson and Wilcoxson booms tomorrow?
And then pretend to be surprised when Wilcoxson decommits from us in two weeks?
So it looks like our offense will go from A+ to A++ while the defense will be downgraded from A+ to A- or at worst B+
I'll take that.
For reference this is how I grade our last 5 teams:
2019: Offense A+ Defense A+
2018: Offense A- Defense C+
2017: Offense B+ Defense B+
2016: Offense C+ Defense A+
2015: Offense B- Defense A
Go to China and stay there until the pandemic is over--right now it's probably safer there than it is here.
Someone needs to stop Nebraska
Dabo reminds me of the Bible salesman from Flannery O'Connor's excellent short story "Good Country People," and also of Robert Michum's preacher character from "Night of the Hunter."
Both characters who talk a lot about religion to mask their corruption.
Hey man, I was just wondering what dang ol Paper towels and toilte paper was selling for and from what I can tell these dang ol people are asking dang ol 3 to 4 times what they cost. I tell you what I said it when this shit started people were dang ol buy up shit to resell.
He's not wrong though, these "entrepreneurs" are scum and should probably be fed to moray eels.
Squirrels are funny--they're really dumb and forgetful and they hide way more than they need to survive because they know they won't remember all their stashes. But that ends up being good for the plants whose seeds they plant.
I don't see him as a bellcow necessarily--I see him and Steel Chambers as a solid 1-2 punch backfield with Teague joining the party in the second half of the season after he returns to fitness
We really can't say from our current vantage point where we'll be in September.
I'm reasonably sure the season won't be canceled, as the scheduled start is about five months away (five months ago, the virus hadn't even begun in Wuhan, and now China is basically on the other side of the tunnel), but I'd really not put down any money that the games, at least the first month's slate, will be played in fully packed stadiums.
The best case scenario is that we see a decline in cases like China did thanks to preventive measures, and that in three weeks or so we're seeing people recover. Worst case scenario is that we get hit as hard as Italy, tens of thousands die, and the virus bounces back in the summer after an apparent remission. In that scenario, it's hard to imagine college football games being played in August.
Wow that's some old timey gallantry there.
Actually it would be kind of neat if Ohio State spotted 3rd stringers to the MAC schools they played.
As great as getting 5 star high school runningbacks is, a proven 1000 yard rusher is far more valuable in the short term, and this addition may well prove the difference between another semifinal exit and a national title.
All of those you named are on the list. Also included are Minnesota's Rashod Bateman, Georgia's George Pickens, and Louisville's Tutu Atwell.
I think Olave should be somewhere around #7. The two Alabama guys, Justyn Ross, and Ja'marr Chase are all clearly in the top 5, but I don't see why Pickens, Moore, and Wallace are ahead of Olave.
I can't wait for the profile of a class of 2038 QB complete with ultrasound images.
Pfft those World War 2 era pansies couldn't hold a candle to the Crusader generations.
The logic of these arguments are fundamentally flawed because they don't take into account how every generation has its own unique challenges. For instance, the current generation is facing a bleak economic outlook where the majority of people (even before the current craziness) weren't able to get a job that paid a living wage. By comparison, the "greatest generation" could basically walk to their local steel mill with no prior experience and receive a good paying job, and getting a house was a lot easier.
But that's nothing compared to what future generations will face with the impending ecological collapse.
This is next level pettiness.
I love it.
