MEMBER SINCE   January 17, 2018

Born and raised in Lorain, Buckeye fan since I can first recall watching a game on TV and that was 1965. Favorite Buckeye moment - getting Woody Hayes' autograph as a kid. Suffering in the hell hole known as PSU country but love sticking it to the fans here. Have made attending the Spring Game a tradition with my two grown sons.

Supposedly the medical experts encouraged the push to spring so they could learn more about the way COVID may spark the heart issue. This is a decent read on it and also points out that the Big 12 continues to have serious concerns about the heart implications.

In this environment I can easily find "experts" to support whatever position that I prefer. If you speak with a health department official whose boss is a Republican you will likely get a very different answer than one whose boss is a Democrat.

And if he is that concerned about the athletes he should be pulling his son off the Mississippi State team if they plan to play.  Then if he says that it is his son's decision then we ask why that was not an option for the players in our conference.  Hope he digs the hole quickly to bury himself and gets fired as commissioner if it ultimately comes out that he and the presidents were more concerned about lawsuits than anything else and that is what drove the decision.

I want to know if Warren followed what the heads of the universities wanted or did the heads follow Warren. Somebody led the push for no football this fall. There is too much at stake to not have transparency about how things went down. This was not a vote about who should be the official rental car sponsor of the conference.

Welcome to a world where those in decision making positions are so scared of lawsuits and have never played the game that they just might eventually kill off at the college level the sport we all love. At a very minimum they may put the Big Ten into an also ran category for the 4 and 5 star recruits. May be over hyperbole but this world has gotten surreal.

Agreed. A lot of words to really say nothing. I want to know how they actually voted. You can talk all you want about supporting the players and wanting to play but when it came down to saying yea or nay what did Ohio State say? Or were they able to take a voice vote where no one would have to go on record.

I would not be calling them idiots.  Wanting Buckeye football in any form anytime is simply a passion. Despite comments the very vast majority of Buckeye fans understand that a spring season then turning around to try and have a full fall season makes zero sense.

As for the people running the universities and our esteemed new commissioner, well.....

The only reason I think they will play is because of how they view college football in the south. It is not hyperbole to say they see it as an essential business and more essential than alot that they allowed to operate throughout the pandemic.
