People in Wuhan that are retesting positive is more a result of their poor testing in China than people getting reinfected with Coronavirus. Basically, they probably still had it when they tested negative.

There definitely has to be a snitch. I could see it being Washington or Mattison working as inside agents for ttun to bring us down. Lets get this figured out now before we get more NCAA violations. Day can’t allow this nonsense!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;)

Does Duane even know what planet he’s on anymore? It gets really painful to listen to him on Tuesdays. With all of his health issues, I’m legitimately  freighted for his health at any time, let alone with this COVID-19 going around. I love Duane, I think he means well, and hope for the best, but I think his time has run it’s course for being an insider over at Bucknuts...

I honestly don’t blame JBook for costing us with Milton like many have suggested, but like AE said, this type of stuff can burn us with recruits. Granted, there’s a ton of crystal ball and future cast action going towards Ohio State, so I assume it’s a matter of when, not if. It was wasn’t cool for Duane to do that, let Henderson at least have his moment man! But part of me thinks that it’s Duane having lost some cognitive reasoning and is speaking like a crazy old man...

Right...and there should have been a penalty on that blocked fg as a defender is not allowed to jump on the snapper to block the kick...

I know things look bleak right now, but have some more faith. We aren’t going to still be on shelter in place by August, more likely May.

In fairness to sermon, he went from two great qbs to running with a glorified running back for qb. I’ve seen Sermon play in person, unfortunately, and watched several Oklahoma games (hoping they’d lose) and came away impressed with Sermon. I would say he isn’t at JKs 2019 level, but I imagine that most of last season’s regression for him might have been more of an issue of losing carries to Hurts and then splitting the left over carriers with 2 other RBs... I’m sure he felt like he had put in his time and earned more to touches than he got. Just a guess, because I’m not going to pretend I have the slightest idea of what really happened with him. 


As for playbook, I think RB is one of the easier positions to come in and figure out right away. I’m more concerned about his knee recovering. If him and Crowley were hurt on the same day, it definitely concerns me. The lack of physical therapy both Sermon and Crowley are receiving at this point to help their recovery is also concerning in if they will be ready for fall (obviously circumstances in our world have rightfully reprioritized their rehab)

These past couple weeks have really changed my perspectives on a lot of things, as not only has Covid-19 completely changed our lives (and I have 2 underlying risk factors even though I’m 33 which has me nervous) but my 10 month old son just had surgery for issues in his ears and neck the day before things here in Ohio really began shutting down...while I’ve gained a healthy perspective in several areas of my life with more time to think and sobering life moments...IM STILL pissed! Screw these damn refs! I hope even they stay healthy and safe in thirst times of concern, but as far as their jobs in the college football world...

From Jack Park’s Buckeye Reflections, on October 22, 1898 we played Marietta and due to injuries we let them “borrow” a player named Bob Hager. He scored a 67 yard TD and Marietta actually wound up winning the game because of him. While I’m not sure if he ever scored for Ohio State, I imagine he did, but that is the only circumstance I can think of, but good question. In the modern era of football, I think not. I know Justin Boren is the only player I can think of off the top of my head that played against us before transferring to Ohio State.

Wasn’t it pretty much a done deal as long as the medicals checked out? With the closing of campus and the limiting of non-essential medical services in some areas, I’m guessing is the cause for the delay, but that’s just a guess...

As I’m sure you know with the username VirginiaBuckeye, it’s a little different sending your kid to Ohio State from VA than it is from Arizona. I know your comment is more sarcasm and I agree with it 100%. Always nervous about these early “silent” commits, especially after last year. But the good news here is that distance won’t be the same factor it was for Bijan, or even Milton and Knighton...
