Jeff Brohm had a lot of thoughts to unpack after today's big news. And the #Purdue coach already has hatched a plan to play this spring.
Even reporting on this and expecting it was coming for a while, it’s still a gutpunch now that’s it real. Heartbroken for the guys who worked so hard and had a chance to do something truly special this season.
RT @schlegelvellie: This is beyond a doubt the worst day in my sports fan life. No @OhioStateFB football & the @BlueJacketsNHL go down in the 5th overtime. The players & coaches fought & will continue to fight & I put my fan hope in that! Proud that our teams are lead by elite men #GRIT #LetThemPlay
I’m not arguing for Rutgers or Ball State to have a season. Whatever ends up happening shouldn’t look like anything we’ve seen before because we’re dealing with an unprecedented situation. But Ohio State is too prolific of a team to fall in line with smaller programs.
Is it safe to make football jokes right now? Because if so, the last person I'm ever turning to for game management tips is this guy.
James Franklin’s main message on ESPN is effectively clock management: league has time, no reason to punt the season away on third down. Calls for delay, not cancelation.
What word would you prefer for being thrust into an interim coaching role, taking over for a Hall of Famer, replacing his entire QB room, facing the loss of his best player, being expected to win every game ... and, oh yeah, coaching during a global pandemic?
Can confirm what @BillLandis25 reported a bit ago about the anticipated Big Ten meeting tonight. It's for athletic directors, not school presidents. On this I'm speculating: It's hard to imagine that call would involve a vote about deciding to play this season.
