Maybe wait one year after the likeness checks are being paid out and it will be a no brained at that point to give the wins back. It will seem real silly to hold those wins back once the new norm of players making $ is accepted. Kind of like having points on your driving record for going 56 mph in a 55 mph zone and the next year they up the speed limit in that same place to 75 mph.

Well here in Columbus, I see very few wear masks and I have yet to wear a mask. I have not missed any work, work in every area of central Ohio and do not know anyone who has died, been sick with it or knowingly had it. So from my perspective, I am ready to move on and”all systems go”. 
  We only get to live once so let’s get back to living( pre 2020 living).

Please, please keep Crazy Jimmy. The gift that keeps on giving.

Well said Philly nut. Unless you are a complete hermit the rest of your life,  you will get it at some time so why not now and get it over with. Or as with most people, get it and have no idea you got it. Let’s live life. Why steal these young people’s life experiences .

The drive out there was brutal but worth it. Oklahoma is a true blue blood which made the walk around town/ campus extra fun( we need statues of our Heisman outside the Shoe!). The storm before the game was something out of a action movie and the Buckeye storm that happen inside the stadium was awesome. I could not tell who kept catching the TD passes from my seat in the end zone and they certainly didn’t replay it much or at all on the Oklahoma scoreboard. We watched the replay the next day and realized how much of the game you miss tucked away in the corner of the end zone .

As I was walking into the Indiana stadium that day, some IU student made some off color comment about how many Buckeye fans were there and I retorted “ don’t worry we will take over the stadium for about 3 hours but give it back to you with Only minor damage “.  I sat stunned for most of those 3 hours and felt very lucky to get out of there without my tail between my legs. The whole season was a frustrating “ what is wrong with this team” theme from week to week.

I love the Shoe. The only improvement I can think of is to add another deck to the south stands like the rest of the stadium. Those tickets would only be given to little league and Junior high students from Ohio and their coaches. This would be a great gesture from Ohio State that this stadium, this University, this team belongs to the whole state of Ohio not just to the lucky 105,000 that get in now.

  I didn’t get to step into the Shoe for the first time till I was in my mid 20s. It is my belief that every youngster  from the great state of Ohio should get to witness a game in the Shoe, high five Brutus , witness script OHIO and see the Buckeye cheerleaders before they hit high school.

If Vincent is healthy and can dominate the middle like his player ranking indicates then we are in great shape on defense. Nothing like the O line being collapsed up the middle to bring chaos to a playbook. My guess is that 1/2 the playbook gets thrown out the window when the guard - center gap is pushed back into the QBs face.

I will piggy back off what others have said about in state recruiting. Cooper woke up a sleepy program and introduced speed to the squad. Tress would have taken that handoff and would have closed the walls of recruiting around the state. Most if not all the instate players that hurt us I games against us would have been playing for us- weaken the enemy and strengthen the good guys.( Woodson, and quite a few others for *ichigan and Ki- Jana Carter and co. at Penn St.).  Those type of tweeks and Tressel ball would have brought more championships. Tress’s style of play didn’t grow old till the end the very end of his career- it thrived at YSU and would have thrived in D1 at that time. 
   All styles have a limited life. Offenses evolve and  Defenses eventually catch up. It was happening to Urban, it happened to Sabin and he is trying to evolve. That said, Tress would have had a killer extra 10 years on the front end of his existing Buckeye career.

We are speeding back to normal and as I have said before. There won’t be much talk of this by July. People are weary of it and ready to get on with life and their summer.  This went longer than expected but it has run its course and it’s time to let the living live and those that are at risk do what they have to do to protect themselves.

   Football with fans in the stands , kids in school and everyone back to work will be therapeutic.

Comment 07 May 2020

Ulterior motives, eh Jim?  This sounds exactly like Sabin when he tried to have the hurry up offense outlawed a few seasons back because it neutralized his style of play. Well, he said it was for the health of the players but we knew what he meant. 
  This is for the players benefit or for Hairball’s?

I like the idea also. If the Bengals can get that kind of return then pull the trigger. But this has to be followed with a  season tank to complete the miracle hist. I agree with trading Dalton - the quickest way to tank in the NFL is with bad QB play. Probably trade 1-3 other veterans that can bring in extra picks. You can not win more than about 2-3 games and still guarantee a top 2 pick next year. You don’t want to have to count on having to trade up next season to get Lawrence or Fields- we would end up getting fleeced just like we are hoping to do to Miami. What’s the sense in that.
