It’s the weekend. I did it. congratulations!
Word of the day: stupid.
open season. Remember all that talk about a one-time transfer? You’re about to be able to get all of that out the window because the NCAA is thinking about letting players roll as many times as they want and always get instant eligibility.
This, along with transfer windows, will allow athletes to compete immediately at their new school as long as they have academic eligibility + provide notification of transfer intent during the transfer period.

There is a bit of give and take here because the transfer window will force players to make these moves at set times and not like, in the middle of the season. But for those who were worried about college football turning into free agency – it’s here.
Are you sure? Pat Narduzzi drove Pitt to his best season in decades last season, but ended up losing the post-season to the third best team in the Big Ten. In a way, Narduzzi decided the game is a perfect example of why Pitt wins the Big Ten awards every year.
No, not just last year. Not just next year. Narduzzi honestly suggested that the Panthers would win the Big Ten each year.
Pete coach Pat Nardozzi said he thinks if quarterback Kenny Pickett had played in that match, it would have been a completely different match.
“It’s a 21-point difference, okay. Michigan State gets a big hit,” Narduzzi said at Bazzy’s Black and Gold Banter. “At least 14 points if Nick Bate plays the whole game.”
“You’re talking about the Big Ten, the SEC, the ACC, if this is one of the best Big Ten teams, let’s go to the Big Ten and win it every year,” he said. “I don’t want to hear about the dominance of the Big Ten and the dominance of the SEC.”
It’s perfectly fair to want to play “What If?” About Kenny Pickett, but Narduzzi easily forgets to mention that Michigan State has also had several starters, including Kenneth Walker III, who won the Doak Walker and Walter Camp Player of the Year awards.
Also, do you know what the best team in the Big Ten actually does when they have to play a third-series quarterback in an important game? They certainly don’t lose out and complain about it after six months.
room for improvement? Ohio State brings back the Heisman Trophy final in a quarterback, the most productive receiver in program history, two top 5 offensive picks and a backhand that finished second in the country in yards per carry last season.
However, with all of these pieces back, there is still one very clear area where the attack can be improved.
When spring training began in March, offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson admitted some of the unit’s shortcomings from the previous season.
Wilson referred to hardness as one domain. He stated that they were necessary in order to “punch her and lead in the field”. Inconsistency in finishing drives prevented them from being an elite offense.
“Right now, we’re a good legal offense,” Wilson said. “But to be an elite offense, we have to be more consistent.”
The Buckeyes often stopped in the red. The 64.4% drop in the red was ranked #45 on FBS.
Last season, there were times when I seriously felt Ohio State was more likely to score in a 60-yard play than when they were inside 10. I’d rather not do it again.
Where do I sign? There are a million reasons why a teen would sign on the dotted line to play football in Ohio, but I tell you what, these facilities are probably near the top of that list.

At least one person sees those pictures and gets interior design ideas for their home, and I respect everything about that.
