I guess we'll find out over the next 11 days, huh?

Up until this point, I have no reason to think that Day isn't a stone cold assassin.

Total side comment on 11W:

Not that this matters, but I came back to this thread I created a few hours and saw 120 comments and assumed it would be on the trending column (where I find most of the threads I dive into personally). I found that 11W only has their own articles on the trending column now. I wonder why? If the purpose is to get as much traffic and engagement on the site as possible, it would behoove them to have the most active topics up there, regardless of the author.

Anyway, just a passing comment to the powers that be.

Comment 29 Oct 2019

It is an interesting question.

Can we name any coach that has won BIG and is generally liked? John Wooden and...?

Comment 29 Oct 2019

He's definitely just as good at giving up 50 points to Kansas State as he was to Maryland, that's for sure.

I'd give you 50,000 upvotes if I could. And I hope you give me at least one because I went and googled your Latin #take.

While I can appreciate your snark, think it through boss.

If a fast player who relies on pure speed, say, a wide receiver, takes longer to get up to speed or come out of a break due to the higher grass while a pass rush is simultaneously collapsing on a quarterback, it will absolutely affect a given play. The QB has the same amount of (limited) time, but even a half second impact on a skill player will impact the game. Even if he dusts the DB, the play will take longer to develop. In this sport, half a second can make or break a play. Half a second could result in a sack or a throwaway. And knowing that slight delay in a play developing will exist, Northwestern can cheat closer up to guard against the run.

Northwestern people have openly affirmed the impact of their grass on a given game. Will it be enough to completely disrupt Ohio State? Of course not. I'm calling for a 28-point win.

38 -10 here. NW D is good, high grass negates some speed advantage. Go into half up 24-3. 4th Quarter TD comes against 2nd string.

Comment 01 Oct 2019

I am fully convinced that if Day can win the hearts and minds of recruits in the living room about 95% as well as Urban, we may be entering an even more special Golden Age of Ohio State football.

Pairing that leadership, family, and X's and O's with the right players should make us (even more) nationally competitive for the next 10+ years. We'll see if he can sell like Urban did. That's the X-factor, in my opinion.

What is wrong with TSUN?

I think you'll find the answer to your question in the question itself.

Comment 27 Sep 2019

I'm so terribly interested to see how Justin Fields does in his first road, night start. It's a huge environment for a first year starter. Will give us a real gauge as to how the kid will do as he goes to other road environments. Glad he's getting baptized here and not at the Big House.
