This probably isn’t too far off with the gang we have getting together. Only there will be 30ish of us. 

Comment 14 Feb 2019

Great info. Appreciate the help. Guess I’m looking a little early. I’ll keep an eye out.

I was always told, you’re not drinking all day if you don’t start early in the morning.

Do you know if they usually just sell them at the gate or can I get them ahead of time?

Things I liked:

Games are televised on CBS, CBSSN, NFL Network and you can watch all games on their website or app. There are only 4 games every weekend so not super time consuming.  

Faster game. No kickoffs and no extra points, so changing sides went faster not having to put special teams in for 1 play. Commercials were split screen so there was to stop in the action. 

Replay wasn’t a mystery man in space. You seen and heard the exchange between the booth and the field referee and understood the reasoning behind the call. 

There were some good hits and not a bunch of targeting calls like the NFL.

Only thing I didn’t like:

No blitz. Only 5 guys max can rush the QB. They did this because they threw the teams together with short notice and the linemen haven’t really had time to gel together. I expect this to change after a season of them playing together. 

Overall I’d compare it to 2 top 10 college teams going at it. The QB’s were the only position that was noticeably lackluster. But even they had some decent plays.

Kinda sorta. I think it’s more like marrying the university. The coach is just a “friend” of the university.  There may be a few different “friends” while you date. I think that is how kids should think about it anyway. They’re technically making a commitment to the university, not the specific coach, although the “friends” play a big part.

What about Kaleb Romero? He’s on the wrestling squad but was a pretty decent QB in high school. http://www.maxpreps.com/m/career/gendersport/stats.aspx?careerid=b796345a-2406-e311-99e4-002655e6c126&gendersport=boys,football

So what if instead of Fields being a transfer he was an incoming recruit for 19. Martell didn’t get fucked. That’s the nature of the sport. What if we landed a 2019 top 5 star QB recruit in the country who was equally as talented as Fields? Would you say Martell is getting fucked? There is always a new QB coming into the system each year. Day went out and got the best one available. I understand why Martell might be pissed but there will always be someone gunning for your job in this business. Either put up or shut up. And getting pissed off and publicly talking shit are 2 completely different things. It’s okay he’s pissed but publicly talking shit and then not even backing it up?! Come on. He deserves all the criticism he’s getting.

This dude hasn't put a single second into Ohio State football. I don't know why somebody would think that the grass is greener on the other side, but I guess he's kind of looking at it like a fantasy way, I guess.
