There are a few here and there...Freiermuth at PSU is a legit NFL TE and he opted back in. But for the most part, you're correct.
I know we're all stoked about competing for a championship, but it is almost (not quite, but almost) as exciting just to see these guys playing again in the S&G. This team is just so likeable...Wade, Fields, J Coop, Hilliard, etc. Very likeable, committed Buckeyes. I hope good things for these good guys!
hopefully its not a crooked SEC crew when he does it though...
And what an incredible "free" recruiting promotion for us. Putting our All American on Sportscenter to pledge his commitment to our team and to Buckeye Nation. Stand up guy talking about culture and brotherhood. Class act all the way.
What a recruiting boon. Buckeyes on national TV with one of our guys repping us big time!
Edit: excuse my language. I'm just so damn excited.
I don't disagree. I just think it is funny to read all the comments with complaints. I know we're being tortured, its just funny to read all of this.
You guys are such miserable bastards! LOL
Doesn't matter what round, just as long as we get to play them again.
And let's have a PAC12 crew...they're not doing anything that week. LOL
As I've mentioned in other threads, I've worked at 4 universities during my career, and one of them was a B1G school (UW-Madison).. I've got a degree from Ohio, OSU, and Akron. UW is incredible when it comes to academics, opportunity and social engagement as well. I think the difference is that UW has a very "homogeneous" undergrad student population (read: lack of diversity). I think one thing that sets OSU apart from UW and a lot of other schools is not only does it excel at just about everything, it is located in a burgeoning, diverse city and their undergrad student population reflects that. In addition, Ohio has a good mix of urban and rural so you get kids from all different walks of life there. It truly is an incredible place...I'm biased, but what can I say?
Most B1G universities have incredible alumni bases, and OSU is definitely in the top tier in that category as well. Our alumni are amazing and the support and "pay it forward" attitude is something I am proud of.
Exactly, and this is the case in a normal year as well. Go undefeated and you're in. Lose once and other variables come into play.
I don't think anyone thinks it is a legit issue, but it sure as hell beats hanging on every rumor about the B1G reinstating the season. I believe we got to thread #22 before we finally got an answer.
That's actually a pretty good G5 tournament right there if you substitute Boise for BYU (they're not any good are they?).
Here is what I don't understand...in a regular year (no Covid) the SEC plays...wait for it...8 conference games! That's the same number we are playing this year. If we only play 8 plus the B1G CG, how is that any different than the SEC playing 8 conference games and the SEC CG? But whatever...no one is keeping OSU out so forget about it.
And typically the SEC non-conference schedule is full of games against G5 and FCS teams, so whatever...
The B1G now has standards and practices that far exceed the other P5 conferences. If anything, I think the ACC will have to cancel some games. Let's be honest, in SEC country they will play even if we have a The Walking Dead scenario with zombies eating people.
I'm officially amped.
Somewhere someone is contemplating posting a Cardale tweet from 2012. LOL
Agreed. Her take (while she has a right to it) is so far off its incredible. Continuous, heinous sexual assaults on innocent students over the course of many years...I can't imagine anything worse outside of assaulting young children or cold blooded murder. Certainly the B1G's decision isn't in the same league as these terrible things, but she apparently thinks it is. WTF?!?!?!
Hence Kiester's comment. LOL It was spot on.
Well Shaun just said he will think about it tomorrow because today is his bday.
One thing is for certain, if he does sign with an agent and gets an advance for expenses, his first order of business is to get Randy a stronger wi-fi connection! LOL
Where is your crown? I'll dubbing you the king of 11W's for this post. LOL
Yeah...that was anticlimactic.
Twitter and all of these hacks and pieces of shit who post "insider info" to get clicks disgust me...I almost have more respect for ESPN now. I feel almost dirty admitting it. LOL
You mean from now THROUGH the playoffs.
Good for Freirmuth. Dude is a player with NFL written all over him.
