America lost a big one yesterday when Norm MacDonald, one of the smartest comedians to ever make a stage, passed away from cancer at the age of 61. Here’s his legendary moth joke to get your morning off to a good start. .

YIKES. Ryan Day did not say a word when he yesterday discussed his frustrations with defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs and Ohio State’s defense. Our own Dan Hope has the full story, but here are the highlights.

About what worries him most about the defense through two matches …

“Giving up too many yards and too many points is the bottom line. And now I think it’s not just a single game, it’s a bit of a pattern, ”Day said. “When you look at the results in the last few games and then come from last year, it is not what we expect here. That is not our expectation. ”

About what could come out of the “long, hard look”, the day took on the defense during the last 48 hours …

“We certainly need to make some adjustments here, not only in how we attack other offenses, but also structurally in how we conduct our day-to-day operations,” Day said.

Day said the possibility of changing responsibilities within the coaching staff is on the table and did not respond directly when asked if Coombs would still be the defensive play-caller in the future, although he said no change decision had been made before. for the coaching staff yet.

Anything else, coach?

“We hire guys to do a job, and they have to do it.”

The day was honest, raw, and it was frankly refreshing. How bad did this press go for the Coombs? At one point, Day was asked if Coombs was still the defensive coordinator for the team.

“Yes, he’s still the defensive coordinator,” Day replied with a laugh. “But we want to look at everything, and we keep working toward Tulsa and figuring out how the staff work together, how the scheme works together, and then we go from there.”

Ohio State is not the type of program to fire a coach in mid-season – unless something terrible happens – but it’s clear that Day expects more from Coombs, and if things do not improve, he will not be afraid to take a step. in the offseason.

REMEMBER THE RUBBER END LEFT OF THE 50 ON THE SHOE SATURDAY? It was a kid, and man, you have to hand it over to him because it’s the best kind of fun. Harmless and not really that disrespectful.

DO NOT DO THIS. I will never understand bets with a tattoo on the line. Look at this poor fool rocking the Oregon’s duck on his thigh forever.

I was pretty confident the Buckeyes would roll Oregon too, but there’s no way I would have put such a thing at stake.

#CHAOS. Save for about six-quarters of Alabama football and half of Georgia’s starting 22, no college football team has really seen the elite through two games this season. Blueblood notch close to WS, FCS team thumps on previous blueblood and well, #Team #Chaos manages the month of September so far. Here is proof:

I’m not sure we’re approaching absolute madness in the 2007 season this year, but we can! And that’s good news for teams you might be cheering for who already have a loss (but desperately need to fix the defense).

USC NEEDS A COACH AND HERE IS LIKE VEGAS LIKE. With Clay Helton’s nine lives finally up on Southern Cal, BetOnline.ag released odds for over a dozen candidates to become the program’s next skipper. The leader package is one we all know well, Luke Fickell.

It’s definitely an interesting list. Fickell said, in essence he was flattered and James Franklin will not even have his name mentioned, but it’s one of the best jobs in college football, so if you’re on USC’s shortlist, at least listen to the pitch, if for no other reason than to go back to your current school and get a raise, right?

I’m sure you all caught Urban Meyer’s name on the list of the third best odds of becoming USC’s next coach. It sounds crazy as he’s a game going on with the Jaguars and I do not personally see him jump back to college ball next season, but strange things have happened.

For what it’s worth, Adam Schefter reports that there’s a good chance that Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, not even on the list, will show up as a candidate for the concert.

WE HAVE PERMISSION TO THE PEN STATE THIS WEEKEND, DON’T? Because this state is insane, and no matter how much you hate Penn State, the SEC must be mocked for his.

“DEEEEEZ NUTS!” – NICK SABAN. I used to hate Nick Saban. These days, I can not bring myself to do it. I’m also amazed at what he has built and how he has won over the last decade. Plus, he’s a 69-year-old who loves “deez nuts” jokes, so he can’t be that bad.

SPEAKING ABOUT NICK SABAN … He’s going to love this. The NCAA is close to passing a one-year waiver to immediately extend the 25-man football class signing limit. Coaches will be able to replace up to seven players leaving a program via the transfer portal.

In August, Saban stumbled upon something like that, and it looks like he’s getting it.

THE JUSTIN FELDS STORY. Part 1 of Overtime’s Justin Fields documentary fell on YouTube, and it’s definitely worth a visit if there are no other reasons than to see his sister call him to cry all the time when he was little.

On a serious note, it is well-produced and a good watch.

TODAY’S STOP. Orville Pecks “Dead of Night”. Canadians, wearing a mask, sound like Elvis. This song is booming.

ETC. Go to the beach with a Michael Myers mask and a knife, what can go wrong… Goalkeeper rocking an Eleven Warriors jersey shuts Cam Atkinson down (at least once) … Look at you, Tulane, claim what is rightfully yours… Two Navajo TV stations make history announcing a college football game in the Navajo language … Here’s a fun game: Google “Florida man” followed by the month and day you were born … Patch your phones, tablets and laptops if you haven’t already… “This is the most gangster thing I’ve ever seen.”
