I was properly whipped in our seizure challenge and must admit victory to a champion: AaronCraftOSU, which I just want to assume, is the real Aaron Craft who went to OSU.
Congratulations on winning our seizure challenge, Aaron Craft of OSU. Your bracket was very good.
Word of the day: Tumultuary.
HASKINS POTENTIAL PLUMET. In January, Dwayne Haskins almost unanimously considered top quarterback in the draft. Then Arizona's love affair with Kyler Murray happened, and Haskins was bumped into No. 2 on almost every mock draft.
Now people are wondering that he can fall even further.
There is this from Peter King of Pro Football Talk at NBCSports.com:
6th New York Giants: Drew Lock, QB, Missouri. Doubt GM Dave Gettleman will do this or take any quarterback here. (In fact, I continue to hear Dwayne Haskin's sinking and may be the fourth fit in this draft.) Gettleman seems to have more meaning to straighten his lines in this draft. But a franchise suits everyone. Locks or Haskins should be choices here ̵1; unless the Jews think it is a lock that Lock will be there at 5pm.
And then there is this:
Having spoken to a couple of different teams, I definitely get the feeling that Dwayne Haskin's draft store was more media created than the team drive. I see Haskins fall on draft day and I think the chances are that he is not the other QB out of the board.

And this from Dane Brugler of The Athletic ($) who has Haskins go No. 11 overall as the third quarterback after Missouri's Drew Lock.
eleventh Cincinnati Bengals – Dwayne Haskins, QB, Ohio State
Haskins may be the toughest chance of getting in the first-round project because opinions about him are shared about the league. But Bengals, who have an established veteran who starts, would be an interesting landing place where he could evolve under the annual headline of Zac Taylor's eye.
Take everything with an extreme salt grain because we are very much in the thickness of #LyingSzn. Any information that comes out at this time could just be a smoke screen or a straight-up lie.
There is a solid chance none of this information is real. I mean, at this time last season, even the best prognosticators were quite convinced that Browns would take Sam Darnold with the first overall election and then shift it as 24 hours before the draft.
Whatever is the smoke there. And I think it's safe to say, Simba sees it too.
This chip is on my shoulder and staying there ..

On the bright side will fall in the draft theoretically mean that Haskin ends with a better team, which could be good in the long run. Unless Dane Brugler is correct with his Bengal projection, God helps him.
BUCKEYES ER IN! Book your tickets now, people, Buckeyes going to Tampa. Joe Lunardi has spoken.
As you saw (or ignored) Virginia vs Texas Tech, the infamous bracket knower was hard at work and dropped its first projection to next year's NCAA tournament, and he has Buckeyes in ] as a no. 7 seeds.
Although you think it's optimistic, Sporting News wasn't that far away, so Buckeyes became number 14. Ohio State would not be worse than a No. 5 seed and could be as high as a no 3 seed.
Here I am about to work on a seizure projection that is made almost a calendar year in advance. It's not healthy, but it's the life of a sports word poster. Give me a 2021 bracketology and I will also be angry online.
D.J. CARTON WORKS. Speaking of next year, I have heard D.J. Cardboard will be pretty wrong, and from the look of it he does everything he can to make sure he is as good as he can be before coming to Columbus.
If you go into 14-minute videos from a high school student, do different exercises one by one with a trainer in a blank gym with absolutely no production and minimal editing, you can get a behind-the-scenes look at his prep work .
Ohio State mister C.J. Jackson and Keyshawn Woods, but I think there is an extremely solid chance that Buckeye backcourt actually improves this season. People forget, C.J. Walker is also a basketball player!
SALUTE FOR THE GUEST. Ohio State Football SID Jerry Emig – world famous on Twitter dot com as @BuckeyeNotes – celebrates its 25th anniversary to be the best in the industry.
From Austin Ward:
Ohio State Sports Information Director had answered hundreds of emails. He was double dipping in another sport that helped run the operations of the NCAA National Basketball Tournament, while losing his responsibilities as the primary contact to a football program with a continuous year-long news cycle. And he ran on almost no sleep thanks to health complications that sent one of his sons to the hospital during March week, perhaps his busiest time of year.
But as in the past 25 years in the profession, Emig kept smiling, having fun, and building statistics with the kind of passion that few can match. It's never slowed down, and it can actually be stronger than ever, as he is preparing to be honored for his summer life at the CoSIDA Convention in June with a 25-year prize.
"Personally, I spent 50 hours from Thursday to Tuesday in intensive care, so it was just SMS updates with my wife Jody," Emig said after a football practice at Woody Hayes Athletic Center. "And then [professionally] during the week from the NCAA tournament from Monday morning to half of our sixth game, I had sent 420 emails. I guess it speaks to the life balance you need and that you have to try, but I will tell you I have been SID longer than I have been a man and a father or just about anything else, it is something that just makes me really, really proud – because I love to be sports director.
Jerry is an absolute legend that works with his ass on everything he does whether it keeps the media people in line with the availability of the football media or authorizes the podium in the French field house for the women's NCAA tournament.
Or sometimes being Urban Meyer's muscle:
MARCUS CROWLEY IS NOT TIGER WOODS. People, we have no danger of losing Marcus Crowley to the PGA Tour.
Justin Fields wrote a video on his Instagram story about Crowley taking a hit on Top Golf and things went … Bad. Especially for the golf club.
I can't throw stones in this situation because I live in the glassiest glass houses. The only golf clubs I have ever swung were inside neon balls under blacklights, while a glow in the dark giraffe cheered me.
This weekend, however, I will give Topgolf a try. But unlike Crowley, you may be cursed that there will be no video of my mistakes (though it is more to protect me from liability and harm than my own embarrassment).
