I skipped Ramzy's value situational pick so soon to be the Widow Jane Oak and Apple Wood Aged bottle. Before that was Wilderness Trail Black Label.
- This campaign is being conducted in conjunction with Ohio State Athletics and in accordance with the applicable NCAA legislation.
- Any funds raised over the cost of associated medical expenses will be donated to a charitable cause.
It's probably out of scope for 11w writers, but I'm legitimately curious about the insurance coverage situation. It seems odd that a football player would end up in a situation where they have to crowdsource 100k worth of out of pocket medical expenses. Presumably, football players have the same student insurance coverage, and the specific procedure wasn't covered?
Given the number of OSU compliance people that had to sign off, we can safely discount any fraud issues, etc.
Edit: Should have scrolled further. Thanks!
There are places where it's canceled (either C19 or fires).
Yep. When Nebraska joined the Big Ten, the thought was it's a big name historic program, so OSU-Nebraska should be a protected game. Obviously, the direction of Nebraska's program hasn't gone as expected.
Eh. I'm still going to root for the conference (minus TTUN) in the bowl games and future out of conference matchups.
I don't envy the parents that have to tell their kids that Halloween/Trick-or-Treat is canceled.
And was postponed so still TBD what last-minute game-planning looks like on the field.
Ohio State welcomes Michigan for the latest rendition of its series on Dec. 12, which is one week ahead of the conference title game.
Yep. Well, "in Columbus," not sure Home-vs-Away matters as much with no fans.
Game planning would be a nightmare.
Urban certainly is confident.
There really should be an 11W weekly piece on the Big Noon Kickoff. Lots of good info on the Nick Bosa situation, the current team (11 NFL players on the offensive side), and some fun Urban trash talking.
I want the Urban at OSU miniseries first. 2012 season, 2014 championship, 2015 let down, etc.
They also have to build schedules for all other fall sports, not just football. The testing and new protocols, etc. apply to all student-athletes (the facade of amateurism has to be maintained).
I still don't know why the Browns are favored by 6. I guess we shall see.
People do stupid shit even when they know it's stupid.
This may be the year to take the 4 conference champs. If it comes down to SoS, the number of games, etc. then things will be understandably difficult for OSU.
Wade announcing his decision on ESPN today. Read into that whichever direction you want.
In general, OSU beat writers seem fairly bearish on Wade returning.
Yeah, it'll be interesting to see where The Game lands. Also, the Thursday, Friday, and Monday slate.
Yeah, it makes sense. I'm hopeful, but I think my concern is that perhaps he was leaning towards opting-out regardless.
Yeah, I think there's a more persuasive case to be made for internal power struggles around the role of football and amateurism within and across Big Ten schools. The other interpretations of the decision being "political" make little to no sense, and aren't internally consistent or falsifiable.
Sounds like it may be a Friday kick on the 23rd. So one fewer day to wait.
The issue becomes how diligent will players be when their team is 0-3 or whatever to start the season.
