I am delighted to welcome you to another day on this rotating rock.
Word of the day: Compliance.
FANS IN STANDING? To be honest, the whole no-crowd felt a bit more weird than I had expected, especially with the weird man-made crowd noise.
But there still seems to be a small chance for us to see fans in the Big Ten’s stands this fall.
Another B1G Football Item: Received praise MON tournament plans to revisit the limited number of fans in the stands. However, keep in mind that #Badgers worked with local health + officials deciding no parents / only “needed”; staff for the opening.

At the very least, we have to get TBDBITL through the gates.
Buckeye football without a marching band is like having nachos and cheese without actual chips – it is technically possible and it will fill you up, but sadly on every front.
I WILL TAKE IT. Ken Pomeroy chose a completely hilarious moment – just after midnight after election day – to drop his pre-season college basketball ranking.
And I have to say … I’ll take it.

Ranked 10th in the country and 2nd in the top 10? Damn it, KenPom, you’re killing Chris Holtmann’s ability to play #disrespekt and sandbag expectations.
“CLEMSON OF THE BIG TEN.” I admire exactly one thing about the Clemson Tigers and that is their ability to run their conference like a damned ghost boss year after year without being beaten in prison by a team like Purdue or Iowa.
But under Ryan Day, the State of Ohio also achieved that.
In recent years, no team has dominated their own conference competition more than Clemson in ACC.
The state of Ohio under Ryan Day is beginning to encroach on that territory.
Clemson has won 28 consecutive games against major rivals since the 2017 season. And that includes its win in the ACC title game. The state of Ohio is getting close to that dominance in the Big Ten. After Saturday night’s win over Penn State, the State of Ohio has a streak of 16 straight wins over enemies in the Big Ten, a string of victories we’ve only seen in the past few years from Dabo Swinney and Nick’s Clemson teams. Saban of Alabama.
Under Urban Meyer, it was expected that Buckeyes would slip once along the way in its Big Ten schedule. It happened annually from 2015 to 2018, including unexpected defeats to teams like Iowa and Purdue. However, with Day leading the show, the Buckeyes averted those flaws while widening the gap between them and the rest of the Big Ten. Winning against Nittany Lions is the latest example of that.
Soon we can go ahead and play our first week playoff with Ohio State, Clemson and Alabama just get the auto bid and you can roll the dice to the last team that has the right to lose in the first round. .
The regular season is just a formality, after all.
Remember when. This is a bit of a hurdle for you as the State of Ohio is really not sure if it will land this delightful five-star pair.
Two years ago today comes back when I hope both of these Buckeyes are ours to retain @zacharrison_ @ Fabs2069 @ParisJohnsonJr @MonicaCLJohnson pic.twitter.com/ojIoMyP0FI

This is a fun reflex exercise because of course, Buckeyes landed both of them. But here’s a live look at Penn State and Michigan fans looking at heartbreaking envy:
