#CheddarBay week 15, B1G Championship.
LATE LINE: KState +7 at Baylor.
We are coming down the homestretch and we’re looking at high drama for the Cheddar playoffs. FlyHighCharlieFrye and AmplifiedEsquire displayed the power of the POTY moving up ten and nineteen slots respectively.
No one has hit the POTY Lobsterfest (which needs a name) yet. But GRR did hit his Lobsterfest (and payout) and took a positive step toward his stated
All play is the Big Ten Championship: Wisconsin -4 vs. OSU at Indy.
As usual, I was the odd-man out on the four man panel with my preference for Colts at Browns against three picks for OSU-Wisco. Hard to argue with this one though.
More Josh Gordon enabling?
I’m going to bring this up if only to get it on the record: Josh Gordon appears to be back to normal for better and worse.
I am dismayed that after his second suspension in the pros, which was preceded by getting dropped by two college programs, which was preceded by being recruited and not offered scholarships by a half dozen top-tier programs in high school… after lots of talk about growth and maturity and focus and discipline… after a seeming consensus being built about the cumulative wrongness of ‘enabling’ the gifted athlete because he’s a really gifted athlete… after all this… Josh Gordon doesn’t tuck in his jersey and wears his socks like anklets.
I love me some Mike Pettine but his ignoring of this unwillingness to abide by the rules is precisely the sort of ‘enabling’ that Gordon has surely seen since Lamar High School and probably before that.
You might not want to get busy with this, I don’t either. But small things become big things. This is a flag.
Uniforms are supposed to be worn uniformly. That’s why they’re called uniforms. It appears there are 52 other Browns players who got that memo. Why is Josh special? Is he better than the rest and thus rules that others follow don’t apply to him? If yes, then ohhkay… that won’t be a problem at all… it’s worked so well in the past.
If I could ask Pettine a question in his pressers it’d be this: would Mike Pettine Senior allow one of his players to play with this shirt untucked?
