As of an SI article uploaded not 10 minutes ago, the latest official statement this afternoon from them indicates that the ACC is still set to play.

" ...The ACC will continue to make decisions based on medical advice, inclusive of our Medical Advisory Group, local and state health guidelines, and do so in a way that appropriately coincides with our universities' academic missions.

The safety of our students, staff, and overall campus communities will always be our top priority, and we are pleased with the protocols being administered on our 15 campuses. We will continue to follow our process that has been in place for months and has served us well.

We understand the need to stay flexible and be prepared to adjust as medical information and the landscape evolves ..." - Statement from the Atlantic Coast Conference

Kevin Warren is a turd ...I will always love my Buckeyes, but the fact of the matter is that we have a lot of people in this country (myself included) looking at us as the B1G Pussy Conference right now. What has happened is that the league has cut off it's nose to spite it's face here.

A potential delay and wait and see strategy could be understandable. A full on cancellation of the season was extreme and very short-sighted. Kevin Warren is in over his head. And I think we would not be doing our due diligence if we didn't at least explore the possibility leaving the conference for good in the wake of all of this.

I am still waiting for Warren to hold his kid out of any Mississippi State football team activities until he feels personally safe that this conference that he is supposed to be a steward of can play in it's own right. Otherwise, he won't be able to escape his own hypocrisy.

Great job by Coach Day. It is a privilege to play at Ohio State. Not a right. And you are not above the law. Riep and Wint knew what was expected of them. It has been repeated ad nauseam to the players. They do not represent the values set forth by the code of conduct for the team. So they are gone. Now it goes to the courts. Coach Day's statement was perfect.

If they are found guilty, then see ya, boys!!! Don't let the door hit you on the a** on the way out. Just sickening news. There is no use for people like that on our football team. That is not what this school is about. What would ever motivate these two to do that?!? If true, they just ruined their futures.

CJ Stroud!!! - Man, this class is stacked! Lets get Phillips and Martinez signed and then get ready to roll!

In 2008, we won the NIT Championship. That became a springboard for the team as, over the next four seasons, they would win 3 Big Ten regular season championships and 3 Big Ten tourney championships. I think Chris Holtmann is building the same kind of future here. We are building a foundation and have a great freshman class coming in to bolster that for next season. We knew this year would be a bumpy one. The NIT tourney, if invited, would give the younger guys on this team needed experience playing in a tournament format. I'm very excited about the future of this team, however. We have some good young players to build around.

I will echo what most others here have said ...Play the kids and hit the ground running next year when Liddell, Gaffney, and Carton enter the fray. This was always going to be a growth year. Time to start growing. We really need to see what we have in this current roster so that we can start to establish their roles going into next season. We are playing for 2019-20 right now. And I'm excited about what is ahead for this team. We just have to weather the storm right now. I think even getting an NIT berth can help the young guys on this roster start to get a feel for tournament play. Given what I think is ahead for this team next year, they will need that experience ...

Tate's lawyer is a complete moron. Laying out his entire case in the media??? ...Where did he find this guy? The NCAA is kicking its chops at this point. I say this with the caveat that I don't hate Tate for leaving. He saw the writing on the wall and wanted an opportunity to showcase his talents that he would not have gotten here. No sour grapes from me there. -- But where did he find this moron of a lawyer?

I feel like this is the type of team a guy like Tom Izzo made his name with. Starting off slow with the integration of new players and then hitting on all cylinders and peaking come March when it is time to make a run.

There is talent on this squad. How it all fits together is yet to be seen, but I think (despite early season ups and downs) they will be ready to make some noise come tourney time. It will be fun to watch and see how they all grow together along the way.

I find this fascinating in that (if true) he has not only hurt himself on the recruiting trail going forward, but has also tarnished his reputation amongst the NCAA coaching fraternity ...This is scorched earth territory for him. I don't think (again, if true) he ever expected this to get out. A crumbling false narrative. A recruit backlash. the impetus and financial backing now tied to the Hermans. And a destroyed reputation. This is as disastrous a result as "MENSA" could have imagined. I have never seen anything like this before. I just wonder the potential legal and ethical ramifications of this for he and that Texas football program under NCAA by-laws. Just fascinating.

From the latest I have read on the interwebs: They have a child custody agreement. She no-shows the neutral pick-up. He takes their son to her apartment in good faith. She is waiting on the balcony and snaps a pic of his car in her driveway and calls the cops because he is "trespassing" ...That is entrapment. She sounds like a real winner. If that is the true story, I can see why he divorced this "gem" of a "human being". -- Zach is in the clear as far as my opinion of him. Sounds like he was trying to do the right thing and she was being a childishly vindictive bee itch and just wanted to see him go to jail. (even though he wasn't arrested) She needs to grow up. I hope the judge throws this nonsense out of court. If that is the TRUE story, then the title of the article needs to be changed, I think.
