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!

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!

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.

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.
