    DiamondBuck Football is 100% physical, 100% mental.

    I won't derail any more but having a gang assassination on Oak Street is not business as usual.

    I'm not under the delusion that the B1G will give a shit, but I'm going to do whatever I can to protest how wrong this decision is.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Oh, my sarcasm wasn’t well presented. Chicago is a hole. I haven’t been down town in ages. 35 miles to the west is just fine by me. Anything east of ORD (the airport, not the man) can fall into the fucking lake for all I care.

    Yeah, and probably will before long. I can only extend the the same good wishes for New York and California. :slappy:

    “UNFINISHED BUSINESS.” If Justin Fields doesn't play another snap of college football, he's still less than a year away from a direct deposit worth tens of millions of dollars.

    Given that, few would have even cast a stone if he even chose to opt out of the fall season, like a bunch of other college football stars. But now that the fall season has been postponed to spring, you won't find a soul who honestly and realistically expects to see him in a Buckeye uniform again.

    But that doesn't mean Fields is happy with how things are playing out.

    Pablo Fields was driving on the Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw, Ga., Tuesday afternoon when he heard the news: His son Justin’s junior football season at Ohio State was being postponed—at best—by the Big Ten Conference.

    “I pulled over,” Pablo Fields said. “It was a really, really bad day, one you’ll never forget.”

    What he heard in his son’s voice that day hasn’t left him, either. Justin Fields was a Heisman Trophy finalists last year and will be a first-round NFL draft pick with or without playing another down of college football, but he badly wanted to have a fall season.

    “My son is always upbeat and positive, but in our conversation that day he was heartbroken,” Pablo (Fields) said. “I don’t think he wants to be done being a college football player. We’re not rich by any means, but he’s not in a hurry to get the dollars. He loves Ohio State University and loves his teammates, and he has some unfinished business he’d like to complete.”


    “I think they’re grown men and should be able to choose for themselves,” Fields said. “I was a young man, 22 years old, when I became a police officer. There were risks every day walking the beat, and I chose to take them. It’s certainly OK to right a wrong, and the Big Ten can do that.”

    For someone who doesn't need to play another snap of college football to collect a life-changing amount of money, Fields is putting in an absurd amount of effort to play college football again.

    I'm not saying I expect (or even have hope) that Fields decides to play a spring season, but if the Big Ten gets its shit together and comes up with a plan, and the NFL delays its league calendar... Man, it's a long shot, but I wouldn't be totally shocked. He's made it pretty damn clear he doesn't want his Buckeye career to end like his.

    That's true, and (even thought it would afford him the opportunity to compete for the Heisman) it would be a greater achievement than winning the Heisman .....:nod:
