Obey the law

A reminder that laws are not virtues or moral standards. They are norms enforced by state officials...

This means... Hitler didn't break the law, Stalin didn't break the law, Mao didn't break the law, slavery didn't break the law, segregation didn't break the law, apartheid didn't break the law... and every person who was either complicit or silent during this time were simply obeying the law

Stop. "7 Big Ten championships" - 3 of those were shared titles in seasons in which we lost the tie breaker... so if you want to count those, then Michigan's 2018 division title is just as legitimate. Not to mention the 2010 big ten championship got vacated which leads me to the next point that Jim Tressel got us put on probation which directly correlated to a 6-7 season and potentially a lost national championship season in 2012. For contrast, Urban set us up perfectly for success and 2019 was one of the best Ohio State teams ever. You brought up Urban's embarrassments but lets not forget Tressel's embarrassments... '06 Florida (vs Urban btw), '07 LSU, '08 USC, and '09 Purdue. Urban Meyer modernized OSU football and took us from a regional power to a national power at a time where Tressel left us in a rough spot. Clearly Urban.

Our society has NEVER needed sports so bad then at a time like this.

Curious how sports being around would solve anything? When sports were happening... police brutality still existed, protests and riots occurred, and the debate was still raging on. Not only that, but the issue was also encapsulated into sports by the likes of Lebron, Kaep, the USWNT and others.

So it seems like sports would be nothing more than a personal distraction to you as an individual, rather than some greater societal benefit or need as a whole. To be clear, I have no issue with this. I also like using sports as a means to "escape", however I think it's important to realize that not everyone has that privilege...

wow. I thought this was going to be something important

If you were able to make it through this cesspool thread of DV's and pandemic experts... just remember that Michigan blew the Big Ten's undefeated bowl season by losing to Will Muschamp

Home field advantage is too big of an advantage in college sports. The national championship would be played by the 1 and 2 seed every year. I'd maybe support it for first round matchups, but the semis definitely need to be neutral field.

If results were based on QB play, Mike Leach teams would win conference championships and national championships every year. It doesn't happen. I can't even name the last 2 Big Ten QBs to beat Ohio State. It's clearly more than QB play and anyone who says otherwise is dumb

Here we go...

JT also played on teams with Zeke, Curtis Samuel, Michael Thomas, Braxton Miller, Devin Smith, JK Dobbins, Terry McLaurin, with amazing OL personnel. Teams that also featured a defense with the Bosas, Marshon Lattimore, Chase Young, Jeff Okudah, Malik Hooker, Denzel Ward, Raekwon McMillan, Tyquan Lewis, Sam Hubbard, etc.

So yes, JT had a good record. But that's just a factor of the Ohio State machine, not individual QB play. So Let's not act like Ohio State didn't 1) have way more talent than 90% of the teams they faced and 2) severely underachieve with JT:

2015 - Most talented team in Ohio State history but FACE PLANTS because of an anemic passing game. *Headache Intensifies*

2016 - By far the worst offense of the Urban Meyer era with an anemic passing game ONCE AGAIN. Oh yeah, but this time instead of losing to Sparty in a tropical storm (not embarrassing), we instead go on to national television in front of 20 million+ people and get completely shutout by Clemson. Thus Embarrassing all of Buckeye Nation in the process

2017 - Slightly better year (Thank you Ryan Day), he did play a great game vs PSU... I'm sure he showed out for those NFL Teams, OHHH WAIT... JT went on to post a QBR of 20 vs an Oklahoma defense at home (LITERALLY HOW??), throws FOUR FUCKING INTERCEPTIONS vs Iowa thus officially ruining our season, and then almost chokes the game vs Michigan before Haskins comes in at the end and saves us. He also played mediocre vs Wisconsin and USC but I can't criticize those because... trophies. (this is the amazing year you cited as to why JT made an NFL practice squad btw...)

BTW players that get designated with the titles of "good leadership skills" and "plays with heart" are code words for players that don't have enough skill to make it as is. It's just a way to justify their spot on the team. Also, there's no way the Saints brought him in to be the team leader as the 4th string QB. That's not how pro sports work, the best players become team leaders.

In conclusion, Shea is good enough to be on a practice squad and JT has a weenie arm. Thank You.
