Not when there's another owner with bigger pockets ready to scoop up these players after Dolan "takes a stand."

It's going to take every owner to make this stand if anything is gonna change when it comes to player salaries. Instead, Indians fans and fans of other small market teams will get the shaft until they change the salary cap.

How many coaches in the country at top 25 schools have the balls to pull their successful incumbent starting QB?

The answer is 2. Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney. Dwayne Haskins "couldn't beat out" JT Barrett as a Freshman OR a Sophomore and now he's about to be a top 10 pick. Stop with the silliness that just because he didn't start as an 18 year old freshman, he isn't going to reach his expectations.

If OSU were to sign Fields out of HS, this entire board would be fucking ecstatic but for some reason because he doesn't beat out Fromm (who was a top 10 QB coming out of HS and had success at Georgia) and OSU gets him as a transfer, half this board thinks he's garbage.

I have no idea where this Tate-homers bought their blindfolds. Tate's arm is at BEST somewhere near JT Barrett's. He's not playing QB in the NFL and this BS that he's just like Murray and would/will beat out Fields easily is absolutely insane.

right, but he was never making the "big bucks" in college. He was at TT as a HC and only a OC at USC.

Nowadays, if you're at a top 10 program and are a successful HC, colleges are just about the same amount of cash as the NFL. If you enjoy recruiting and controlling your roster (a la Nick Saban), the college game is wayyyyyyyyyyy more intriguing than the NFL.

He's pretty young. If you look at any big time head coach (Urbz, Saban, etc.), they usually have a lot of different jobs in the first ~10-20 years of their careers before they start settling in spots.

Day hasn't really made any mistakes yet (that we know of), so I'm gonna hold off on assuming it is Bill Davis 2.0 before things play out.

This is going to be a long, but exciting offseason.

I dunno how more people don't share this sentiment... it's absolutely ridiculous the praise Georgia got for LOSING.

What is the point of playing the actually games if the results don't matter? Another loss? Oh well, you're one of the most talented teams! There were obviously some different circumstances in 2015, as the Bucks didn't win the conference, but where was that attitude in 2015? It sucked to miss the playoffs that year, but it was the right move.

I don't hate Kirk, but the guy has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to rankings/playoff selections. If he's going to use that argument structure, there's no way he can have ND in, especially when he said that he would expect OU/OSU/Georgia to all beat ND on a neutral field! OSU didn't take care of their shit, so they don't deserve to be in. As much as I hate Notre Dame, they won every game on their schedule. You can't fault them for that, regardless of the strength of that schedule.

Georgia at the #5 spot is a crime, but I'm not sure it matters all that much. HOWEVER, I really hope they look at getting rid of the automatic bids for the Rose Bowl, etc. UW vs. OSU is a horrible bowl game and a shot at Georgia might actually outshine the Clemson/ND game for ratings and it is a shame the players and fans don't get to see that matchup.

Same... unless something crazy changes over the next few weeks, this team just isn't that great.

Obviously, some great talent at certain positions but they are not a Top 5 team when looking at all 9 units.

Comment 16 Oct 2018

I think the big difference people are forgetting is that Nick is currently hurt. If he isn't going to be "healthy" until the B1G Championship, why risk coming back not in playing shape and getting hurt again?

If Nick doesn't get hurt, I don't think he chooses to sit out any games, especially if the Buckeyes make the playoffs.

Until a mass amount of fully healthy players start ending their season early, this isn't really a discussion. Nick was injured and is protecting his top 5 pick contract by making sure he does no further damage to his body before the draft, which is 100% the correct decision.

Comment 11 Oct 2018

Noon games are garbage. I don't understand why anyone supports them, but especially this BS tradition of The Game being played at noon.

Football is meant to be played under the lights.

Comment 27 Aug 2018

dumb question, where does everyone put cash down on sports online/is it actually legal now?

that being said, I feel like OU whoops them and covers.

Comment 09 Aug 2018

I've been wondering if this is the case as well.

However, to explain your "Zach Smith got the raw deal" part, I think if the rest were true, then it's mostly OSU just not being able to handle any more bad press. While '09 and '15 might have been "nothing", the university and Urban just couldn't handle the third strike.

I just hope we get some truth by the end of this, but with more and more responses from the Powell PD, I'm not sure if we will get the full story until this thing plays itself out in court.
