Thanks for your service for one thing. My wife has a noodle recipe passed to her family from her great grandmother who survived the great depression. It requires flour and eggs I believe. We were lucky enough to score those 2 ingredients so we will have that staple if nothing else. Have to use your recipe for the rest!

Stay safe!

I swear.. last time I post this here. Ban me if you want, just trying to help our community...

****HELP NEEDED PLEASE READ AND HELP IF YOU CAN****

I don't do social media at all so I need you social media experts to get word out about an idea I have to help each other out in this situation:

If a senior or someone in need has any items they need but are unable to get out of the house or cannot order online they can tie a white ribbon/cloth to their front door knob and post a list on the door of any items they are in need of.

As we drive by or walk by our neighbors homes, if we see the ribbon we can look at the list and see if there is anything we can "Spare and Share". Once we leave the item or items we knock twice to let them know the items are on their doorstep and they can get them after we leave the area. This takes care of social distancing.

I figure the only way we can do much right now for those most at risk is to pay attention to those who may be shut in. Basically "if you can spare it, share it" is my attitude here. 

Please do what you can to get this out there. I sent an email to 10TV but it doesn't seem to be working so calling on my 11W brothers and sisters to get this out there. It is about the idea that counts I don't need any recognition or want it. Thanks everyone!

Awesome. Go Bucks! 

Now, I am going to post this one more time since my forum post has been unnoticed, sorry for spamming it a little but I need this idea out there.

I could be wrong but it seems like more and more it is becoming about having a narrative. Look at the narrative with regard to Justin Fields and I would think a Running Back who maybe isn't at the top of the RB room in Oklahoma would have a good narrative about him coming to Ohio State and "helping" us out when our RB went down. Anything to bring some attention to you with the right narrative could mean a lot come draft time. We shall see. I would welcome him at this point.

It's interesting that the NCAA suggests that the portal exists for reasons of transparency. The reality, however, is that it is not transparent at all once the player decides to change to the next school. They sit and wait for an answer about whether they get to play immediately or have to sit out a year and have no real insight into the process at all. So if they really want transparency, put all of that out there too.

I really don't want to get all tinfoil hat but you add that terrible offensive pass interference call against Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl and how that changed the game as well and one just has to think something is up here!

I don't know enough to say much about the targeting call. But I can say without a doubt that the fumble scoop and score was a total BS call because if it had been the other way around I believe in all my heart that they would have never overturned it in the review booth.

But, at the risk of sounding too much like someone from mgoblog I will just say that I am proud of the team for showing the world what a great team they are and they can hold their heads high for that performance regardless of the outcome.

This is an interesting conundrum. On one hand, you want to be in the playoffs so that you can recruit the best talent. On the other hand, in order to recruit the best talent, you need time during the weeks of playoff preparation. Seems like the teams that don't make the playoffs have an advantage here, but, again, if you make the playoffs then more players want to play for your team. 

THIS is why coaches get paid the big bucks (no pun intended)
