MEMBER SINCE   September 15, 2016

After receiving my MFA in creative writing at Florida International University in Miami and adjuncting there for a few years, I've now moved to Denton, Texas where I'm a teaching fellow and PhD candidate at University of North Texas. Never been to Ohio but my family is a Buckeye family so I bleed Scarlet and Gray.

Funnily enough I can't really remember any of Chase Young's sacks that distinctly. Maybe because there were so many of them.

This seems like a sensible policy. I wish we had a sensible governor in my home state (Florida) and my current adoptive state (Texas), unfortunately we have governors who'd prefer to play a pandemic by ear. 

A CFB season is still very much in the cards, but I'd not be shocked if it happens without the participation of teams from Florida and Texas.

As others have pointed out, Danny Clark never wanted to leave Ohio State, he just wasn't good enough to be our QB and the staff moved on from him.

Other horrible scenarios: 

Justin Fields stays committed to Penn State and we have to play him 2 or 3 times with Tate Martell as our QB. 
Ryan Day gets lured away by the NFL in 2018 and Urban Meyer is succeeded by someone else
JT Barrett never gets injured in 2014, we never find out about Cardale, and Alabama successfully schemes around JT and Ohio State loses the Sugar Bowl by two touchdowns.

You have to remember that there will be plenty of opportunities for flips and decommits, so even if the cupboard looks bare now, more kids will reopen their recruitment when/if things get closer to normal and OVs are allowed.

In the last thread people were expressing anxieties about Tunmise Adeleye flipping, meanwhile he was tweeting at Jordan Hancock (using the BIA hashtag) saying Hancock has "Buckeye speed." 

Would a guy thinking about flipping be actively and publicly trying to get a Clemson commit to flip to Ohio State?

I think Lincoln Riley needs to seriously invest in a defensive braintrust, and with respect to Alex Grinch, I don't think he's the guy. 

Riley's Oklahoma can put up points on bad Big 12 teams but when they play the best teams from other conferences they'll keep coming up short.

Speaking of Charlie Strong, anyone else see he's now listed as an "analyst" at Alabama? 

How is this shit still legal? The NCAA seriously needs to make a regulation against Alabama having 20+ assistant coaches but not calling them such.

I'll never understand Taggart's career trajectory. 

Has one good season at USF --> gets the Oregon job --> goes 7-5 his first year in a weak Pac-12 --> gets offered the FSU job --> shits the bed --> gets paid millions of dollars to not coach after getting the axe.

Washington Freemasons. 

Think of the potential logos, the potential uniforms, the potential conspiracy theories.

Brian Bishop also predicted the world would end in 2012. 

"Brian Bishop" is the weirdest name for an ancient Mayan I've ever heard.

There's something about America that seems to give us more of these people than most countries have. 

In most of Europe and Asia (idk about Latin America or Africa) if you tell someone "please avoid this area, there are unexploded land mines" people will dutifully avoid it. If America had unexploded mine fields, better believe some people would argue they had an unalienable right to dirtbike through the fields, while others would argue that the land mines don't exist or that the war they were laid during never happened. 

This isn't to say there aren't people like this in every country, just that something about American culture seems to encourage them.
