1917 was more boring than I thought it would be, I mean it is WWI movie after all and that war just doesn't get much fanfare. The story is unique to the director which is cool and the heaviness at the end is worth the watch (just takes a little time to get there).
Since I've been missing baseball like crazy I have been getting my fix by watching all the movies in that genre. Some classics that I have watched since Mar. 17th include The Natural, Field of Dreams, For Love of the Game, The Rookie, Mr. Baseball, Rookie of the Year, Little Big League, Major League, and I just finished Bull Durham.
Lastly, being a strength coach myself; I would be curious as to how the strength coaches, physical therapists, nutritionists, sports psych staffs are staying in touch with the athletes. Have you guys heard anything as to remote training apps, or ZOOM meetings?
Topic for another time probably, but what writers/mentors/life events made you guys want to be sport reporters? Also, when talking about the "legends" of the OSU beat whose work do you follow the most? (P.S. is Doug as mean as he claims he is?)
I think just starting the college football season with the conference schedule (Sept. 26th) would be great. We already have to suffer the doldrums of another Ohio school getting demolished, we could avoid the quack attack, and who cares about Buffalo (without a Khalil Mack type player no less). Also, by not starting the season until the end of Sept. you would theoretically have a ton of time to get a full training camp in.
Home games go down from 7 to 5 but I would think you wouldn't have to pay those schools that didn't come to the Shoe early in the year. I may be wrong about this because I'm not sure when those teams get the check from OSU.
As a result of COVID-19 and senior spring athletes being eligible for another season, did those coaches get a message/email/phone call from Smith as to how Ohio State would go forward with those athletes, or was it up to the individual sports?
What did you guys (Dan and Colin) miss most from not having a Spring Game this year?
Would Holtmann be in favor of starting the basketball season up again with the NCAA tournament (Huggins proposal)?
1. Good Will Hunting (…"son of a b*tch, stole my line")
2. The Natural...the whole homerun sequence is pure magic.
3. Saving Private Ryan...just awesome and a fitting culmination.
