Players at least should not be seriously considering other offers once they commit.  Probably could say they shouldn't be taking other visits.  Thus the question is, why is it even happening?  Perhaps the coach was putting a lot of pressure on the player to commit?  "Commit now, or I'm sending your offer to someone else"?  Once they commit, they should already have their minds firmly made up.  Then again, they are 17 year old kids.

Two years ago, OSU got a slow start at IU.  Fans started screaming, “overrated”.  It was the beginning of the end.

What they need to do is overcome distractions and emotional highs/drains.  2018 Purdue loss came the week after Nick Bosa said he was leaving Ohio State.  Somehow, such things just happen to lead to the team having their worst outing of the year.  I figure it's either that, or horribly underestimating their opponent.

If he's all negative, he's a hater.  If he's all positive, he's a homer.

I've found Doug to just give his unbiased opinion.  Like any other sportswriter, he's sometimes right, and sometimes wrong.  That's why it's called an opinion, and not foresight.  He has even emphasized on his podcast that it is his opinion, and he may be proved wrong.

This was not for "winning', or 'celebrating".  It was about displaying a complete lack of class with your university's name on your chest.  It is extremely rare that the higher-ups in the university would call out a player for doing something so embarrassing.  If they do, you can assume it was no small matter.  Heck, UM didn't even call out their players for their smack-talk before the OSU game last season.

Why is it so difficult to display some sportsmanship after a game?  It literally takes zero effort.

Not...terribly...bright?

As I recall, he said he did it because he was pissed off over what Ohio State did before - the whole team gathered on the field and sang "their fight song".

So mark that down:  "Carmen Ohio" (which the band/team play/sing after EVERY game, win or lose) is OSU's "fight song".

Not terribly bright at all.

There is no doubt Victor made some amazing plays for OSU last season, the biggest perhaps was the catch-and-run - with a ton of tackle-breaking - TD.  What we really need is consistency.  If he can keep getting open, and minimize or eliminate the drops, he's going to be our best pass-catching WR.  If anyone can coach him to improvement, it's Hartline.
