If any number of liberal hosts were taking a shot at Michigan I imagine you'd think otherwise.

What's next, David Duke has a hot take for James Franklin's tenure at PSU? Rush Limbaugh has something spicy for Dabo Swinney? But let's not "make it political" guys.

This team will be filled with superstar potential. My only concern will be who can replace the impactful seniors -  Malik Harrison, K.J. Hill, Jordan Fuller, Branden Bowen, Jonah Jackson, Binjimen Victor, Robert Landers, DaVon Hamilton and Austin Mack. Happy to see them get a shoutout here as they were collectively such a solid group.

From a pure enjoyment standpoint (and assuming I don't have to sacrifice the results of the others) hands down:

1. 2019 (my recency bias is showing)

2. 2018

3. 2015

Agreed - I understand taking shots at a rival program for years of futility and poor coaching decisions. I understand poking fun at Jim Harbaugh's, shall we say, eccentricities. I understand reminding UM fans of the consistent ass kickings their team has taken at the hands of the Buckeyes in the 21st century.

What I will never understand  is people who feel the need to laugh at / make fun of a high school kid for being a 3 star and receiving a scholarship offer from UM. I get it, there is a talent gap. Wonderful. Hilarious. Hope it remains forever. But to get that offer is extraordinary on the kids' part and there is absolutely no need to denigrate that accomplishment. Just don't see the need to highlight and make light of every time UM offers a 3 star. We have a few in our 2021 class - which stands to be one of the best in OSU history. Plus Darron Lee. AJ Hawk. Malik Hooker. Chris Olave. Pat Elflein. Jacoby Boren. Michael Thomas. Etc.

But here's the thing - it isn't just sporting events and college classes. Outside of your local area, major precautions are being taken globally. Italy doesn't give a shit about the NCAA tournament. It just ordered all businesses except pharmacies, grocery stores and banks to close. Not to take away freedoms, but to curb the spread of a virus that global health organizations know very little about how to stop from spreading.

And it isn't about college sports fans' "freedom." Sure, you may be willing to take the risk. But think of the ticket handler, the concessions workers, the ushers, etc - most of whom are paid hourly and don't have health benefits / paid sick leave from the job relating to the NCAA tournament. To expose them because you want to preserve your "freedom" as a sports fan isn't just foolish, it's immoral. 

Comment 11 Mar 2020

Schools are being closed across the country, many companies are having employees work from home, folks coming in on flights / cruises from certain countries are being quarantined, and two major political rallies were cancelled yesterday (along with a number of other big events that might constitute an "outdoor parade")

So...what's your point, exactly?

Comment 22 Jan 2020

All the fake pearl clutching inevitably leads to blatant racism, of course. Won't hold my breath for a second waiting for the mods on this board to call it out or delete it, based on prior responses - or lack thereof - to similarly idiotic, senseless posts. 

Comment 11 Nov 2019

Just a horrible take in every way possible. Haskins was 13-1 as a starter, won the B1G Championship and Rose Bowl. Rewrote the single season record books. OSU is currently #1 (likely #2 tomorrow) and undefeated. Not to mention the fact that OSU has another year with a QB it wouldn't have landed had Burrow stayed. So please, tell me...how was starting Haskins a mistake? How would we have been better off?

Comment 29 Oct 2019

It's not about simply "being paid." It is about denying an athlete the opportunity to be compensated for possessing 'value' others are willing to pay for.

If I had a full ride academic scholarship - should I not be allowed to a paid TA? or private tutor?

If I had a full ride for musical talent - should I also not be able to offer private music lessons?

And in no way, particularly at reputable power 5 programs, are those benefits commensurate with the value they bring in. If we're talking about fairness here. 

Comment 16 Oct 2019

He's either being shady or intentionally uninformed. There are videos of him working with QBs individually or at camps. It is extremely common for players of any position to have individual coaches off the team's staff.

It's like saying "I'm not sure what Butch Harman or Hank Haney does." Avery coaches QBs and his track record suggests that he does it very well.

Comment 27 Sep 2019

It was one game on the road against a good team. Calm down. As for the Army game: this was a good Army team and Service Academies are always difficult (Navy 2010 - you know, same year OSU lost to a bad Purdue team and an overrated USC team? Season turned out pretty nicely)

Virginia Tech 2014, Iowa 2017, Purdue 2018, etc. Is UM as talented as those OSU teams? Not at all. But let the meat of the schedule play out before we presume them dead after 3 games. Not defending them, and I thoroughly enjoy their demise. But reports of it may be premature at this point. Thx

Why? He was going to be behind a quarterback who as significantly better. He chose to leave instead ifbbe his backup. I don’t understand the continue obsession with someone who doesn’t even play for Ohio state.
