Yesterday I cleaned my floor with a brush and celebrated it with a little rum. I'm a parrot unless I'm a pirate.
Word of the day: laconic.
Within Nick's decision. Nick Bosa was silent on the radio after his decision to leave Ohio State, which did not do much to calm the hordes accusing him of giving up his team.
But now, a few months later, the smaller big bear is opening up about the injury that cost him his season, his decision to leave the state of Ohio and how it affected everything.
From Kevin Van Valkenburg of ESPN:
"I was very depressed," he says. "That first week, I was alone in my apartment and I started calling the people I care about, just to talk." I called my high school coach, called my father, my mother, my brother. [Pro Bowler Joey Bosa]. It was pretty hard. My whole year had been stripped. "
Bosa says that from the beginning he realized that standing on the bench, observing the practice, was not what he needed to spend his time. The athletic training staff was very busy with the rest of the team; It is not as if coaches could focus singularly on their rehabilitation. About a month later, after meditating with his parents and brother, he decided it was better to leave school. He would move to California and live with Joey. There was a rehabilitation center just 10 minutes from Joey's condo. "It was the worst moment I can remember as a dad," says John. "See what it could have been and think about what could have been, and the path it was in. It was quite difficult."
When Nick went to tell the coaching staff of the Buckeyes, he was fighting the tears.
"He has a big heart," says Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson. "He loves people, I know that the day he left to leave this building, there was not a dry eye in my office, we cried together." One thing he said was: "Coach, I'm sorry, I left you down. I told him: "No, you did not disappoint me." He felt so bad that he had to make that decision.
Maybe it was a good move to stay out of the spotlight, especially if that was how it felt. I'm not sure it would have been healthy or useful to try to respond to fans at that time, because if there's one thing I learned in my online time, it's that minds do not change anyway.
In any case, it will be good to see him fold the field marshals again. It will be a pity forever that I can not make more quarterback folds for the Buckeyes.
PARRIS CAMPBELL SNUBBED. Todd McShay organized his annual "All Satellites Team", which ranks the best game creators in the NFL Draft, explaining that "he does not want these outstanding prospects to get space in space."
That sounded like a fairly invented list for Parris Campbell, so I was dumbfounded when I learned that it had not even been deciphered among the top five and that, instead, it had been given an "honorable mention".
From ESPN McShay:
Honorable Mention: Parris Campbell, WR, State of Ohio
The Buckeyes burner tied Isabella for the best 40 time between catchers in Indianapolis (4.31), then tied Cody Thompson for the shortest short ferry time (4.03) in the position group, so she knows that the speed It is elite. It does not miss as many defenders as you would think, but it has the wheels to explode a fold.
Campbell had 90 receptions in 2018, and he still managed 8.9 yards after the catch.
For McShay's credit, he legitimately excluded D.K. Metcalf too, which is probably the only thing that kept me from destabilizing my laptop.
He also did everything he could to compensate Buckeye's faithful with his Draft Clbad Superlatives, which included Dwayne Haskins and Nick Bosa.
Most accurate QB: Dwayne Haskins, State of Ohio
Haskins' completion rate of 70.0 was the fourth best in college football last season. It is the purest pocket pin in the clbad, showing excellent natural touch and anticipation.
Best edge cutter: Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State
No surprise here. He is just a natural pbader, excelling in advancing the pbading race while he is engaged. Bosa plays with great leverage and a solid forward lean.
Those seem terribly obvious to the point that it's hardly worth mentioning them here, but given Parris's earlier rebuff, I think we can not take it for granted.
UNITED POTENTIALS. We all know the rules, but sometimes the rules are not fair.
Every once in a while, a young player steps on the field and it seems he has nothing to do with college peers, but then he has to do it, for three damn years.
And not only the fans think that there are players who could go to the next level after only one season in college, those who make decisions in the NFL also do so.
Jenny Vrentas's SI.com:
… With the NBA preparing for the arrival of Duke freshman Zion Williamson and Trevor Lawrence of Clemson, he became the first freshman quarterback to start and win a national championship in three decades, the MMQB asked the NFL evaluators one of the most discussed hypotheticals in sports: Could a college football player enter and exit the NFL?
We surveyed 26 general managers, head coaches and staff executives from 18 different NFL teams, giving them anonymity so they can respond honestly. Some of the respondents gave more than one name, while two of the 26 were determined that no player could do it …
The smart NFL football players named five former Buckeyes who could have done the action: Maurice Clarett, Chris Spielman, Andy Katzenmoyer, Joey Bosa and Orlando Pace.
In my humblest opinions, I think that the most unforgettable player of the whole group was Pace. I'm sure there are teams that would have dropped him out of middle school if they could, and it would be hard to criticize the decision.
In addition, TIL: Chris Spielman was the first high school athlete to appear in a box of Wheaties.
NEVER TELL ME THE PROBABILITIES. A message for all time travelers: this is where your free money lives.
The state of Ohio is 66/1 to win the national title of 2020, by @betonline_ag. Tied with LSU, Maryland, Memphis, Seton Hall and Wisconsin for the 26 best odds among all teams.

In all honesty, 66/1 is an incredible value for a team that some have on their way, the first 10 first. But again, you're basically betting on two guards who have not played for a minute with an Ohio State uniform and expect the Buckeyes to add more size and no longer live and die for Kaleb Wesson.
It sure is a very remote possibility, but hey, I guarantee that you lit money for worse reasons.
The dead man is still dying on the hill. Magic Johnson has just been ejected from his fire in the container of an organization, while All-Star D & # 39; Angelo Russell will take his team to the playoffs for the first time since 2015.
You would think that this would be a good time to admit, at least subtly, that he made a mistake, but we know that it is not a Magic game.

Friend, you recruited a 19-year-old who went to college for a semester and a half and changed it almost before he could legally drink alcohol. If you expected a fully mature player in that span, that's 1000% for you.
More than that, you really sided with an aging role-player and called himself "Swaggy P" for your second general election when he accidentally exposed him for cheating on his girlfriend.
It's amazing that I can still say all this with a serious face.
"I'm not my property! I'm not my property!", I keep insisting as I shrink and slowly turn into a corn cob
