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.

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.

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.

Hi Joshua, quick question on media bias.

Do you think media bias is very real, very ridiculous, and/or very impactful on rankings, or do you think it is mostly exaggerated by the fanbases that aren't currently getting the "love" they think their team or conference deserve?
