OOF he just got a longevity bonus on January 15. Day before signing day. That’s a dick move.

I came here in hopes that you would mention the Jackets and was not disappointed.

Seriously people, the Jackets are on a really, really fun ride right now. 11-14-4 and 11 points out of even a wild card spot on December 7th. One of our two best defensemen, Zach Werenski was put on IR the week before. Emil Bemstrom put on IR the next day. Ryan Murray (a top 4 defenseman put on IR on the 20th. Savard and Harrington (two other defensemen) are out with injuries for multiple games. Somehow, the Jackets find a points streak during that time between 12/7-12/31 (going 6-0-4). Top line winger Cam Atkinson goes down with an ankle injury that keeps him out multiple weeks. Other top line winger Oliver Bjorkstrand is out 4-6 weeks with an oblique strain. Then our all-star goalie Joonas Korpisalo goes down with a torn meniscus and we have to play a rookie goalie, Elvis Merzlikins, that's never won an NHL game. How does he do?

Goes 9-2-0 the month of January with three shutouts and the Jackets are currently sitting in WC1 and one point back from third in the Metro. 

This team at points was basically a glorified version of the Cleveland Monsters, and remember, all three of our big free agents decided not to re-sign this year.

Watching this team is a blast and there's plenty of room on the bandwagon.

When I went to the OSU-UM game with my dad in 1994, we parked around Indianola and 16th and walked to the stadium. I was around age 10 then and I can remember thinking that was the longest walk I'd ever taken in my entire life. We stopped at that old Wendy's that used to be at High and Woodruff and when my dad told that we were just about halfway there I couldn't believe it. I thought I'd walked hundreds of miles.

Then later when I ended up on campus, 15th and Indianola to the stadium isn't at all what I would consider far lol

Later, we stopped at one of our neighbor's daughter's apartments because he needed us to take her something. I remember thinking this place was like THE coolest place I'd ever seen. Only later did I realize it was Olentangy Commons, which I would later live in (it wasn't that cool)

Exactly. This is a futile exercise because there's an assumption that Joe Burrow, had he stayed, would have followed the EXACT SAME path as he did at LSU. 

There's entirely too many variables to begin to understand the "what ifs" and "who was better" and "what was the better decision". It ultimately turned out well for both teams. Things aligned perfectly for LSU this year and Burrow stepped up.

Who knows if Burrow would have even stayed here another year if he played for us last year. Odds are he might have a Haskins-ish type year and like you said, bolted to the NFL.

Okay. Nick Saban IMO the best coach that ever roamed our sidelines

Comment 14 Jan 2020

I hope at the least we showed there's absolutely no reason why a Big Ten Champion OSU team should ever be left out going forward. We should be in the playoffs every year. 

Comment 14 Jan 2020

He's the best QB to ever wear scarlet and grey, even if ultimately achieved success elsewhere.  

This isn't a thing, guys. I said this in another thread but Ohio State fans want wayyyyy to much credit for Joe's success. Dude threw 39 passes here and suddenly he's "the best QB to ever wear scarlet and grey."

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Absolutely a natty is better, I think our fan base is being a little presumptuous about Burrow being who he was this year on our team. 

Burrow was in basically a perfect situation at LSU this year with a perfect coach (Joe Brady) to succeed. He hasn't been here in over two years. I think we're taking way too much credit for Burrow and just assume that he would have done the same thing here. Sure, Burrow COULD have been this good here, or maybe he wouldn't have been. Maybe he, like other posters say, would have had a Haskins-type year here last year and gone pro? 

If you're gonna consider "what could have been", you have to do it from both sides. 

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Mkay. Well Joe is a 5th year senior and Justin Fields is a true sophomore...

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Dumb take. Burrow wasn't nearly good as Dwayne was last year.

Also--if Burrow was here for a senior season, I'm not sure Fields would have even transferred here. So you're assuming we would have had two years of Fields when we more likely would have had zero years of him 

Comment 14 Jan 2020

I agree--this was the best outcome possible for what was left. LSU controlling a game (it means that our game against them wouldn't have been a given, unlike if Clemson rolled) and Clemson getting multiple calls against them (ya hate to see it).

That said, I hope LSU goes down in flames next year. 

I will always feel the injustice of 1) being snubbed by the committee for the #1 seed and 2) being on the receiving end of some of the worst calls we've seen this past year. Hope our boys are hungry. 

Comment 13 Jan 2020

Yeah same here. Not worth it for me to take any extra steps to watch the game. It’s stupid as hell they broadcast this on cable but whatever
