Well for one, Oregon’s governor has already said no large gatherings thru September, which is even more extreme right now than LA County saying lock down for 3 more months (which means begin/middle of august)

Does anybody else think this will be a great time for talent evaluators to find out who’s truly passionate about their craft and who isn’t, especially as it pertains to the draft?
I know it’s not always fair to hold it against some guys that they don’t have the home gyms and things others do, but college players that are going pro after this year or 2 years, better be ready to go come the season or they may find themselves in a tough spot down the line too.

Didn’t understand this. The transfer I get. I mean him not getting any PT. He became was the best player in the back end by the end of last year and now can’t play? 
 

For as surprising as the turn around for the defense was as a whole, this was as equally surprising a fall.

I actually made note of that play by Olave diving forward as it happened live. Maryland did well to stop it and it was a veteran move to put his head down and get the first. 
 

Sky’s the limit for the team.

All of my Jake’s comments get thrown out for me after the Collinsworth piece. Haha. Can’t stand him. 
 

Every announcer is supposed to be prop up whoever is playing at the time, but his amount of talking about how great so many guys are each night he’s on air is terrible. NFL football night games are un-listenable between him and the MNF crew IMO.

I get it. But I just have a feeling that this coaching staff has a unique way of saying, yeah, we’re pretty good, but nowhere close to where we need to be. 
 

This was my only complaint of Meyer over the last couple years. It didn’t seem he continued to push the envelope, instead saying were good and winning most games. In today’s era, that’s not good enough. Don’t leave it up to a group of 12 to decide your fate. JMO.

I thought before the season 1 of 2 things would happen this year: 

1) Day would need time to adjust as a full time head coach and OSU would lose 2-3 games OR 

2) He already has it figured out and he’s going scorched earth on the rest of the conference this year with an absolutely loaded roster. 

We know which one it’s been so far. Here’s to hoping it continues tonight!

"You managed to get to the CCG and beat this team, but actually, we think they're still better so sorry, but you're out."  

This is absolutely absurd. I get the idea but it's stupid. It's SEC logic in that it doesnt really matter if you lose. Bama gets beat by some SEC team and 'oh well, they play a gauntlet, they're bound to lose at some point so it shouldn't matter because they're still better.' 

It would literally increase the problem we already have with these teams getting preferential treatment because they appear to be better, results be damned. Do I think 2014 OSU was better than alabama? No, I don't and if Lane Kiffin had ran Derrick Henry all game, OSU loses. But they didnt and OSU won. Should we say that alabama gets to play for the title anyway even though they lost because we think Alabama is better? That's the argument here. 

Comment 23 Sep 2019

I’m wondering if that means he will be by next fall. I believe some guys take heavier summer workloads  to speed up the process (which regular students typically don’t) so maybe that’s how. Or high school AP courses for college credit. In any event, hope he finds what he’s looking for. 

Comment 23 Sep 2019

I understand the thinking, but we have to keep in mind the way a football game unfolds. 

Every team has a set number of plays they come into a game with that they think will work and they use them initially to see how a defense plays them. A defense typically plays more base early on to identify how an offense will attack. That’s why you see the ball being moved by these teams for a drive or 2. Then adjustments come and aside from a play or 2, the Silver Bullets have shut the door this year on the last 3 opponents.

I take exception to the idea that Ryan Day is going national with recruiting and Michigan can swipe the best ohio guys. 

That's exactly the opposite of what Day has done in his 9 months on the job. He's locking down Ohio and being picky about national guys. Maybe it moves toward a more national approach as he gets a bigger reputation in the coming years, but it's certainly not like that now. 

As for who michigan could get that would scare me? There isn't any one. Just as Juwan Howard doesnt scare me as their b-ball coach, no one that would be willing to accept that job will do any better than they've done recently.

3 blocks in 4 games. I get why he isn’t getting more publicity, but in a bigger game against stiffer competition, those plays could be the difference. I’m not thinking about any recent past history or anything....
