Early in the year, the QB run will win us some games while the O-line gels. He will go for 100 yards rushing in a couple games this year. Still, he will be an efficient passer in those games, too. 200/100 type stat lines. 

Fields will not pass as good as Dwayne Haskins in year one, but his first year starting will be better than Adrian Martinez’ first year starting at Nebraska.

Last year, Joe did a really good job at LSU., considering the challenges.  

—He didn’t get started in their system until summer.

—Their offensive system was terrible. Reminded me of a Jim Bollman offense. Disjointed. No identity.

—They could not pass block at all. Sometimes they had to leave NINE guys in to block. Atrocious. Joe hardly had time to throw. 

Hopefully, they addressed these issues in the offseason and Joe gets a better shot at a higher level of success.

Kendrick Perkins thinks it's very possible. He for sure doesn't think OKC is done dealing. 

I think it's probably more likely they trade Steven Adams and some other pieces to truly build a team around Russ that fits him... athletic shooters who can space the floor and make teams pay for clogging up the lane so Russ can't drive to the hoop. 

They experimented with Jeremi Grant at the 5 in the playoffs and it was a +22 lineup when he was on the floor in that position. He's a bit young and skinny, so the defense was lacking a little.

If you’re in CBus... I’ve got some pastor friends who lead good, gracious, giving churches. Some denominational but others non.  

If not, let me know where you are and I can help guide you through what to look for in a church. I’ve been a pastor for 24 years and I am the Executive Director of a non-profit Christian community development organization  in OKC now.

 You’ve received some sage advice.  A lot of that is because you were vulnerable and honest.  Look what you created with a post! Think about what’s possible for you to create in your life.  You’ve got this & you’re not alone. Find your communities of support. I recommend deepening your faith and finding a good church family.

One of the things I’ve found helps get the mind and heart right after a loss like this is to find a place to serve and a way to give back. It helps put things into perspective.... both the the good and the bad in our lives. Usually, we find that we can give the love we have in our hearts for a relationship to people who often don’t get any love at all.  Be a big brother to someone. Build a house. Feed the homeless. Talk to some lonely folks at a nursing home.  There are people who need the love you have in your heart. 

I’ve seen my fair share of love lost.  It sucks. You can’t ignore the pain or pretend it’s not there. That’s okay. Be present with it. As you are, you’ll find that it’s not insurmountable.  You have strength inside deeper than the pain. You’ll grow.  One day at a time.

I should say, they’re going after 3-star Ohio talent on the O-line and D-Line or LBs a lot earlier (like Tress) than they did under Urban. 

If Ohio has a generational skills position talent like Braxton or Teddy Ginn, they’ll be all over it. 

So, it’s not “we won’t take Ohio skill players” it’s that we are locking Ohio 3 star talent in the trenches earlier (because Ohio has that in abundance). 

A lot of the best speed and skill players come from outside the state.  Not all, but a good portion of them.  Look at who Day has recruited in 2019 & 2020 & 2021 at QB, WR, RB, CB.

Comment 03 Jul 2019

It appears that Day is combining the best of the Vest and Urbs when recruiting, which I always hoped for...I think it’s tge best long term winning formula. 

Recruiting Ohio kids, especially linemen and LBs who may not be as highly rated early, plus going hard after national talent, especially in the skill positions...I like it. 

Ohio kids are the baseline for state pride/identity commitment. Gets the state football coaches more strongly backing you. National kids who choose here choose that cultural identity.  We can cherry pick the athlete and kind of person we want in this program who will come and love the school and the state.

I don’t remember a day of my life where I wasn’t a Buckeye fan. I was baptized into it, so to speak.  My grandma, interestingly, was the one who I remember being the most enthusiastic of fans.  My earliest memory of watching a game on TV was from Woody’s era so I must have been 3–5 years old. I was born in 1974.

They’ve got 50,000 listeners or subscribers already (not sure which). 

Regardless of what you think about Zach as a person, IMO he’s kinda made for the podcast/radio world.  Fast talking, good storytelling, insider info, and not afraid to be controversial or throw shade.  I mean... that’s the formula for success in that field, right?

Anyway, there are some real nuggets. His interview next week with DJ is on my list as “do not miss.”  Can’t wait for that one.

The things is... he's owned up to that. He admits his mistakes and even said he should have been fired in 2015 because his life was falling apart and he wasn't performing to standards.  Basically said, the whole last year was a dark time but he turned to his faith and the people that he loved and it saved him, essentially. 

Comment 31 May 2019

Zach said she wasn't a good person and treated people poorly. Had Warinner by the balls b/c he cheated on her -- and said out loud to some players that she gets the credit card and does what she wants because she stays married for the money. Once Ed got fired, she was livid that Zach still had a job and went out of her way to try to get him fired and ruin him (similar to Michelle Hermann in some ways like that). At least, that's kind of what I recall from listening to it a few days ago.

Comment 01 May 2019

You’re right. I don’t know. But I do know that the interest in OSU is huge in our fan base. So much so that we had people watch LSU play football this year to see Joe Burrow play.  To me, I can’t figure out why no one has based a football minor league around college football fan bases. I’d pay money to watch JTB or Braxton or others play on a team stacked of OSU and other Big Ten talent.  AAF? Only if it fits my schedule and if a Buckeye is on the roster. 

Comment 01 May 2019

 to me AAF looked kind of cheap, go with classic uniforms like bama or penn state and pick a locally influenced mascot, pick up players that have a local connection like the OP stated and I might be more interested.

Yep. Cheap Champion Jerseys and not enough "local interest" players. 

I love the idea of Thursday night games! Good one.
