Greetings from you this great morning with great news: The acquisition of Ohio State's quarterback in this direction will not affect the acquisition of the quarterback of the future of Ohio State.
Nothing happens https://t.co/n8FcQtuULD

Word of the day: executable.
PLAYOFF FATE. What if I told you that Ohio's playoff hopes ran through Lincoln, Nebraska? Wayne Staats of NCAA.com has put together a list of 1
Ohio State in Nebraska, September 28
In each of the last two seasons, the Big Ten roadside losses left the state of Ohio outside the College Football Playoff (55-24 in Iowa in 2017, 49-20 in Purdue in 2018). This game could match this pattern if it is to continue. The Huskers were only 4-8 last year, but do not be surprised when coach Scott Frost starts turning things around and putting Nebraska in the role of Big Ten West.
Ohio State in Michigan, November 30
At some point it must happen for coach Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines, right? Michigan has battled top rivals Ohio State and Michigan State, but 2019 could be different. Michigan is bringing back QB Shea Patterson, and though a ton of defensive talent will be gone, DC Don Brown seems to always bring it together. This one is also in Ann Arbor. Now is the time.
I'd like to joke about how funny it is that a September Nebraska game makes this list when Ohio State has Cincinnati, Wisconsin, Michigan State and a late match with Penn State in November, but if I'm honest The corn people rattled me a bit.
I saw my team stand on the pitch and splash
And I know why it made the list, but I'm more worried about everyone else I've listed than about Michigan. If my life has taught me anything, then the Wolverines are completely self-destructive at the end of November.
There's no other team in the Big Ten that looks like it's actively trying to lose to the state of Ohio each year, much like Michigan. Except maybe Rutgers.
The worst fan of the year. There are embarrassing parts of a fanbase, but congratulations, Buckeye Nation, we officially have the worst.
The 2018-1919 Harvey Updyke Award for malicious or embarrassing fanfare with 38.1% of the vote is Buck-I-Guy because he appeared in full regalia at the Earle Bruce Memorial and signed a reminder that only intended for former players: https://t.co/8kRHheNfkD

I had managed to put the memory of this event deep into the folds of my brain, but here we dig it out again. But I think, to be honest, if there is this award without reading the other nominees, she must go to Buck-I-Guy.
Although it looks like he had a much stiffer competition than I expected.
From r / CFB:
In third place with 11.9% of the vote: Clemson fans take free tickets to a charity and military South Carolina game
In second place with 22.6% of the votes: Florida State Fan Photoshop coach Willie Taggart, who wants to get into a picture of a lynch, is fired from his job
And in the first place, with 38.1% of the vote, the Harvey Updyke Prize 2018/19 wins: Superfan Ohio State Buck-I-Guy appears in full regalia at the memorial of Earle Bruce and intends to remember only for former players
Imagine being so widely abhorred that a large majority of voters consider you more malicious and embarrassing than a guy photographing a head coach in a picture of a lynching.
Do you remember when ESPN took him into their Fan Hall of Fame?
PLAYOFF GENERAL. The newest member of the College Football Playoff Committee has a full resume.
From a press release from the College Football Playoff:
General Ray Odierno named his nearly 40-year military career as the 38th US Army Chief of Staff from 2011 to 2015. He received a bachelor's degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he played football from 1972-73. He later received a master's degree from North Carolina State University. He is a graduate of the Army and Navy War Colleges and holds a master's degree from the Naval War College. General Odierno served in Europe as an executive officer for battalions and departmental artillery, including deployment for operations DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM. Later he commanded the 2nd Battalion, 8th Field Artillery, 7th Infantry Division and Divisional Artillery, 1st Cavalry Division.
During the war in Kosovo in 1998, Odierno was Deputy General Commander of the Task Force Hawk in Albania. From there he joined the 4th Infantry Division in 2003/04, responsible for the arrest of the deposed dictator of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM. From 2006 to 2008 he served as Commander-in-Chief, Multinational Corps – Iraq (III Corps), operational commander of the shock troops, before his time as Commander in Chief of the Multinational Force – Iraq, and then United States Armed Forces – Iraq from 2008-10.
Following the successful change of command in Iraq from 2010 to 2010, General Odierno was the commander of the United States Command Force Command. Other key roles included the arms control officer, the defense minister's office and the assistant to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where he was the primary military adviser to former US Secretary of State Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice (a former CFP selection) committee member).
General Odierno is chairman of USA Football and was honored in 2013 by the National Football Foundation as a Distinguished American. He was a member of previous winners such as Vince Lombardi, Bob Hope and Alan Page.
To be honest, this guy has gotten about 46 times more than me and whatever I like to cuddle with this world, but apart from a two-year stay at Army, this has nothing to do with college football.
I'm not trying to sound grumpy or beat up a guy who could be one of the most impressive people I've ever read about. It just feels like we're getting further and further away from football connoisseurs who choose the best football teams in the country.
Counterpoint: I would probably put my life in the hands of this man if I had the chance, so I should be fine if I give him my playoffs.
SABAN AIN SO It seems that Nick Saban was not too enthusiastic to lose Josh Gattis.
Gattis recalled his meeting with the Emperor in an episode of Harbaugh's Podcast Attack Every Day :
"When coach Harbaugh called, it somehow surprised me. I had just left a meeting with Nick Saban when my butt got chewed for about 20 minutes and was told that I was leaving and he was trying to persuade me to stay. It did not go well. So, if there was anything to aid the bruise, it was the call of 19459024, "Gattis said during a conversation with Harbaugh about Harbaugh's podcast this week. "It was exciting to hear his voice and get the chance to speak with him in person."
And then he thought he was going to Maryland. Imagine Saban's reaction when he told him that he was actually planning to set his career as a coach on fire by going to Michigan.
I understand the fascination for a young offensive spirit who goes to Michigan. I've talked about it all season: There's no reason why Michigan would have been so aggressively incapacitated with the skills it had at the quarterback and the receiver. The problem was that they had voluntarily committed a 2004 offense in which the average ran at best.
And that's the problem: creative offensive football dies in Ann Arbor.
I'm convinced that Gattis is a smart guy. I just do not see him well with our khaki friend. I think he'll realize he made a terrible mistake the first time he's trying to install a cool, modern concept, and Jim says, "Great, where's the full-back?"
And it's not as if the last guy who left Bama to become offensive coordinator for Michigan got into gear. Under Doug Nussmeier Michigan took the 115th out of 128 in the total offense.
I suppose it could not be worse!
CHANGE TO THE PLANS! Sometimes football coaches say things that turn out to be wrong. Example:

I love Riley, who acts as if it were his own noble decision not to sign one of the most coveted transfer quarterbacks in the last memory, as if he would do this Do not do it in no time if he wanted to come to Norman.
The proof, of course, is a less talented quarterback who decides to come to Norman, and Riley opens his arms.
