    Top 10 returning Big Ten players, per PFF

    He came in after halftime at Iowa IIRC. So he was present at Iowa, OSU, Nebraska. The team looked different after the half at Nebraska and I don’t think it was my imagination. I didn’t have a real dog in the fight at that point. I recall mentioning something about Wally Pipp. I did pick a...

    Top 10 returning Big Ten players, per PFF

    Yeah, it was clear early on Bateman had the tools to be special at receiver and similarly Morgan exhibited innate skills to be special at quarterback. The offense flipped a switch as soon as he came in at Nebraska in 2018. He was above average on passing downs, typically low percentage third...

    Ryan Burns on Kaden Johnson

    The original story is jilted girlfriend stuff. Everyone cooled on him? Wisconsin was full? Right. Kaden has a nice blend of size, speed, power. He didn’t want to go to MN, so what? Wisky is known for their defensive scheme and development, have a good eye for talent, and wouldn’t blow a...

    Mark Dantonio retiring

    The 62 page Mel Tucker thread key takeaways 1. Pages ~1-15 are familiar sounding Stuart Smalley self affirmations that CU is good enough and Tucker won’t leave, bought a house, engrained in the community- every fanbase engages in this and it will sound very familar. 2. Pages15-22 rumored MSU...

    Mark Dantonio retiring

    I don’t see a coach that’s ever built a team into a winner, anywhere. The enormous contract is laughable. Chance of developing into a spectacular (and expensive) car wreck- high

    Was that article from The Onion?

    interesting, but not interesting and unnecessary to DpoDoll68

    Flashback to the 80’s for me - great game! Many, many hours. Kamchatka was always a point of contention in the East Asia pushes IIRC... Those of us that grew up in the 70s and 80s had all the gamer classics, and then I recall my best friend and I grew into messing around with the early...

    interesting, but not interesting and unnecessary to DpoDoll68

    Is there a recruiting class of 2022 or 2023 or 2024 (I’m not going to waste time looking his class up sorry DPO - I’m sure you can inform us) to put items like this in? These proxy wars get a little tiring so maybe we can all learn to play nice.

    OHIO STATE'S AMIR RIEP, JAHSEN WINT CHARGED WITH RAPE, KIDNAPPING

    Even though the majority of allegations are legitimate there are some that obviously are not or circumstances are murky at best eg the Gopher scandal. Some here don’t seem to realize they may be falsely accused at some time in their adult lives. Those that have “been around the block” some...

    It’s a real shock to find out you don’t like words being put in your mouth.

    All Things Veritas Losing 7 Defensive Starters Thread

    Political opinions are ok if they’re the same as mine. Clear enough? Agree the Hitler thread was inherently political in nature. Not so much the stand vs not stand until a certain poster let his or her biases and prejudices fly out of frustration. Nothing wrong with pointing that out. We...

    Pretty sure your comment was directed to the wrong poster. Somehow we zoomed from Veritas intolerance of chronic standers to nazis, euthanasia, racism apparently based on some other conversation none of us are privy to which is bizarre.

    Well there you have it folks, if you’re a stander/dick you’re a drunk, and if you don’t pay homage to the communist wing of the DNC you’re a nazi. What a time to be alive.

    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    Well, it’s not influenza C but it also isn’t time to buy face paint, cut a Mohawk, and mount a flame thrower on an ATV. Nobody really has a firm number on actual percentages because it seems likely some people are minimally symptomatic as with the flu or the common cold and just bunker at...
