The scheduling debate can go on and on. The reality is, Ohio State needs to get their legal team, working on cleaning up contractual language, that removes gray area situations as they are presently facing. The defining legal gargon should remove legal responsibility for these kinds of instances. No play, no pay, as simple as that!
If it becomes a no season decree, redshirts for everybody? The problems and consequences would be insurmountable.
No high school football? Where would that put the recruiting world, with a backlog of players at the collegiate level?
I think it's the perfect venue for the Lady Bucks!
I would think St. John Arena would be more accommodating for smaller crowds.
This is not the place for racist rhetoric.
Let's stick to Ohio State athletics please.
I'm confused, OSU has quite a few recruits rising in the ratings. Shouldn't that have have an effect and reflect on our team recruiting ratings? Seems we have been locked in at 301.26 for a long, long time.
Coach Stud is proving to be perhaps the best OL coach in America!
Ya gotta love the personal initiative, commitment and resolve, from Gee Jr. and I'm sure the OSU coaching staff is taking note of this.
The reality is, of the 1/2 million or so, who will succumb to this deadly virus, a large percentage of those, would have died of regular influenza anyway.
What has been lost in all the calculations is the fact that all pandemics lose strength eventually, naturally. As they propogate, they tend to lose their inherent strength, intensity and effectiveness, as we witnessed with swine flu and SARS. These viruses are virtually, non-existent today.
Don't forget the prominence of the giant scoreboard and the replay screens, with amazing audio/visual effects. Today's sound systems can inject artificial crowd noise and cheers for big plays. A virtual crowd effect can easily be achieved, for the players sake and those viewing at home. Let the audio/video engineers apply their mastery and let the games begin, crowd or no crowd!
I hope ProKick has been developing his running punt, from day one.
If not, get out the Cam Johnston videos and let the development begin!
Damon Moore had a brilliant football mind and perhaps the hardest hitting safety in program history, since Jack Tatum.
He earned his starting slot with the Chicago Bears, but had his NFL career come to an untimely end, testing positive for marijuana.
J.T. was a warrior and didn't let a few injury setbacks, deter his resolve and did what champions do.
J.T. played perhaps the greatest single game performance by a QB in Ohio State history, against PSU. Accumulating 328 yds. on 33 of 36 pass attempts and a perfect 16 of 16 in the 4th quarter, to lead the Buckeyes in a dramatic, come from behind victory, that will go down in the record books as one of the all-time great games in Buckeye history.
Coach Day will never pass on an opportunity to improve the teams chances, while maintaining the high standards we have for high caliber student athletes. I think it's a given, we should expect a grad transfer, or two, each and every year.
I totally agree, Buckeye757!!!!
What we saw in the Clemson debacle, was officiating from the reply booth, with the (SEC officials) acknowledging the fact, this decision may become key to the final outcome of the game. (which it did)
Joe Burrow is finishing the greatest season of any QB in college football history. No one comes close!!!!!
"Didn't know what they were doing"
I'm assuming you are referring to the 2018 coaching staff and not this year. If so, I quite agree, if not, I totally disagree.
Coach Stud is earning himself and hefty bonus and a contract upgrade!
The targeting rule, needs to be further refined and clarified. Too many defensive players have been unfairly ejected, by inadvertent , helmet to helmet contact, where it there was clearly, no intent involved. Removing a key player in a closely contested game, can influence the outcome. The rule loses it's legitimacy when this occurs. Too many players are being penalized and unfairly punished.
In this case, the Michigan receiver, is the one who lowers his helmet, not the defender.
I think Justin was a bit awestruck, or intimidated early on, uncharacteristically inaccurate in this throws. As the game progressed, he settled down and produced in a big way.
JK & Justin had a great day, thanks to the outstanding play of the OL. Can't praise the slobs enough!
Give credit to the _ichigan OL first half. They kept Patterson clean and gave him lots of time to stand in the pocket and throw. OSU halftime adjustments and the decision to insert Jonathon Cooper, made all the difference in world. Patterson was harassed the entire 2nd half, continually blowing up the pocket.
I came away, surprised at his level of objectivity, candor and honesty. We need much more of this from both sides of this bitter rivalry.
I'll take a little snow every time, over rain or wind, thank you!
Urban is quite the opposite of Herbstreit.
Except Justin losing his grasp on his TD dive, the other fumbles were textbook stripping the ball. Can't fault any of our guys, but credit good technique from the would be tacklers in dislodging the ball.
