The truth is, I run out of ways to tell you that the big ten still haven’t gotten their shit together, but I think it does the trick.

Word of the day: Chutzpah.
AT LEAST ARE THEY CONSISTENT? The third day I sincerely thought we would get a message has come and gone, with the most eventful news turning out to be the addition of the accursed president of Nebraska to the chorus of people who have no idea , what the hell takes so long.
And the weird part is that everyone seems to know the decision anyway?
No official word on a Big Ten reboot has leaked down to Big Ten coaches. Many programs have run / planned the last few days for a start on October 17, pending the upcoming vote / decision. There is still a lot of hope and optimism. But no official green light yet.

If the big ten’s “make the decision extremely clear but don’t formally tell anyone about it for a few days”, an approach you know sounds like it’s because they did the exact same thing a month ago when Kevin Warren asked the teams just “go easy in practice” instead, you actually know how to make a decision.
Source: The top ten presidents are still canceling the season, but the league is not ready to announce. The decision is close, but not final. The ten major programs have been instructed by Commissioner Kevin Warren to essentially go light in practice tomorrow.

So now we have gone in full circle and we seem to be in the “go harder than usual on practice” phase of decision making.
Can this be over? I just want to get on with my life.
DO NOT WAIT SO PATIENT. If you think this whole process has been exhausting for you, then imagine what it has been like for the players who have had their season hanging in front of them for weeks without an official word from anyone about anything.

I do not know if it is refreshing or sad to know that the players have been in the exact same boat as us and are constantly checking Twitter in a desperate search for news of some sort.
CREATIONS MADE. Ohio State players are used to working with their asses to prepare for a season, but they’ve had to take the whole “dedicate your life to football” thing to a new level since the pandemic hit, as Shaun Wade reveals.
. @ OhioStateFB CB @ shaunwade24 told me that this year was the year for us (to win the national championship) and then talked about the sacrifices they made to hopefully have a season. https://t.co/sqtzuThXau pic.twitter.com/XShmnMpzUT

So basically everyone – including the freshmen who were undoubtedly trying to adapt just to be in a strange new place – put all their lives, not football-rated since March, in order to have a chance to compete.
Here we hope that this was not in vain and that we will soon find out.
CHASE CHASES QUARTERBACKS. It turns out that Chase Young is still good at football, even though he now plays against professional folk musicians instead of amateurs.
CHASE YOUNG in his debut in debut was dominant for #redskins vs #eagles.

I love that we just have to do this regularly now. Remember when the world was shocked by Joey Bosa’s immediate dominance? So Sam Hubbards? So his Nick Bosa? I can not wait to see who is next!
