  1. One, this is false information, especially as we’ve seen young healthy kids And young adults that were infected come down with strokes, heart complications, and symptoms akin to Legionare’s disease. Two, considering all of the 40yo+ fans that attend games...they’re certainly in the demographic that should (but isn’t thanks to idiot Karen protestors and morons spreading misinformation) be taking precautions. Considering hospitalizations and infection rates are in the rise at a rate that far exceeds that of the increased rate of testing *and* we’re starting to see cities and states (e.g. Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona) creep very close to capacity in usage of ventilators and beds...it’s just not wise or smart to have fans in the stands for these games...or possibly play them at all. Maybe if you have it impact your family like it did my family, with a parent dying from it and relatives (including healthy 20-somethings) suffering through this, you’ll take it serious and quit with the misinformation. Updated with current data that is showing a spike since reopening:
  2. Notice how it’s cut off when Moos addresses people in the stands. It’s probably gonna be like other sports, where the games will go on, but fans won’t be there. TV money is more important than butts in seats at the game itself...
  3. Not all PS4 games will be backwards compatible, keep that in mind. Now, I'm pretty sure FF7 Remake Part 1 of ? will be, but it's not a sure bet until Sony actually says it. And honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if it isn't, and SquareEnix wants to make you buy it over again for PS5 to recoup costs. Also, keep in mind the FF7 Remake is coming to PC and XBox One/XBox Series X later this year. It's only a timed exclusive.
  4. Yup, and it's not. They've had it digitally on sale for $40, and I don't remember what the cheapest I saw it in the store was. But it's not worth it at full price.
  5. Well, if anyone was wanting this team to have an underdog mentality about itself...showing them the lines to many of these games is a great way to do that.
  6. There's a team of three developers that have a homebrew game that's on XBox One and PS4 right now. No licenses, but all FBS teams are represented, and it has a full logo, roster, and uniform editor. It's probably the direction any NCAA Football game will go from EA--make believe team rosters (and possibly teams themselves), but with the power to update your logo, colors, and roster. --- Also, I didn't add it yet because there's little more than speculation, but Microsoft also has a lower spec machine (running at 6 TFlops--more than sufficient for 1080p gaming) that they'll be selling at launch as well. Problem is there's no info other than rumored TFlops from the infamous (and so far, batting 1.000 Github leak).
  7. Just updated the Next Gen Gaming Thread with new PS5 info. 

    Sony fans...you may want to stay away at this point...it looks like the infamous GitHub leak was dead on.

  8. That team and all Ivy League teams, to a kid, should get a year of eligibility back (once we're on the back end of this potential pandemic and things have settled down) from the NCAA. I mean, FFS, this isn't their fault Coronavirus is spreading.
  9. World War I was a meat grinder war of attrition. I highly suggest the series "Blueprint for Armageddeon" from Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast--very informative and shows how unprepared the French and British were for the Germans and how walls of people had to pay the price for a stubborn adherence to military tradition...until they learned.
  10. Things have been relatively quiet on the next generation console front, but we know that the PS5 and XBox Series X (XSX) are planning to launch during the Holiday 2020 Shopping Season. We don't have many details on the PS5, save for some various site leaks (which, notably have proven out for the XSX side of the infamous Github leak), but Microsoft has been kind enough to provide some details for the XSX: Known facts for the XBox Series X: Has12.1 Teraflops of GPU power. This power puts it ahead of most PC graphics cards (as of this post), including the Radeon 2080 (a ~$700 (U.S.) graphics card). Is rumored to be able to hit over 14 Teraflops when "variable clock rate" (similar to what the PS5 is doing) is engaged. Think of this as a "boost" mode, and not something that can be sustained. Fully Backwards Compatible with XBox One, and Backwards Compatible with most XBox 360 and many original XBox titles. Smart Delivery: If you're playing an XBox One, 360, or XBox title and updated assets and programming for the XSX is available, the XSX will automatically download the updates for free Example: CDPR (of Witcher fame) has already confirmed that those who purchase Cyberpunk 2077 this September 2020 for the XBox One will get the XSX assets and updates for free. One purchase supported across multiple generations (read: the antithesis of Bethesda and Skyrim) Zen 2 and RDNA 2 Architecture which will allow for real-time, hardware based ray tracing (big deal in PC gaming currently--needs a beefy graphics card to handle). A 52-Core Zen 2 AMD Proprietary processor that will run at 3.8Ghz is the processor under the hood. SSD Storage on Motherboard 16 GB of DDR6 RAM will power the console, with bandwidth speed of 560 GB/s for 10GB of RAM (read: RAM used for primary gaming functions), and 336 GB/s for 6 GB of RAM (read: dashboard, console utilities, secondary game functions) The RAM will operate with a 320-bit bus. HDMI 2.1 4K UHD Blu Ray Disk Drive 1 TB SSD storage in the consle for gaming and OS use Existing XBox One controllers will work with the XSX (read: you don't have to buy extra controllers at launch) There is a XSX-specific controller with the console (read: it looks the same as the XBox One controller, but has an extra share button and is rumored to have improved rumble and Bluetooth). Known facts for the PlayStation 5: Has 10.3 Teraflops of GPU power (when "variable clock rate engaged on the processor--think "boost mode". Base is 9.2 Teraflops during standard operation). This puts the PS5 squarely behind the XBox Series X in terms of computing power, and above most $300 graphics cards for the PC. The processor for the PS5 is also a Zen 2 proprietary processor, but with 36 cores and running at 3.5 GHz Sony has claimed that "hundreds" of PS4 games will work on the PS5, but specific numbers of compatible titles (or a list of incompatible titles) has not been provided 16 GB DDR 6 RAM with a 256-bit bus and a bandwidth speed of 448 GB/s for all 16 GB of RAM 825 GB SSD storage in the console for gaming and OS use 4K UHD Blu Ray Disk Drive Console architecture allows for a theoretical 5.5 GB I/O throughput on the motherboard. This is a raw number, and process overhead will easily eat into this. As of 3/20/2020, there have not been any images of the new console released yet. -------------------------------------------------------- Since the leaked info has more or less been proven correct for both consoles, people have gone forward on boards like NeoGAF and created charts to compare the data based off of what we know from the leak and what was released: Xbox Series X Sony PS5 CPU AMD Zen2 based 8-Core AMD Zen2 based 8-Core CPU Clock speed up to 3.8 GHz (3.66 with SMT) up to 3.5 GHz (SMT?)

The leaked info provides more of an insight to how things are going, and Sony may not want to provide info considering they're in a vulnerable position right now. Anyway, as soon as there's more, I'll update this thread.
  11. Wonder if I can stream the NET games using the PBS app even though I'm out of state... ...and hopefully if we can get things on track, this schedule will change and we'll see more games added as the season progresses.
  12. C'mon, let's get real folks: Coach Frost got left a dumpster fire of a program and he's having to rebuild from almost scratch. The only way his seat becomes warm is if another coach is sitting on it before he gets back to his office. That's it.
  13. Willful ignorance is still ignorance, and considering these two were linked to Nebraska football, it seems wise to keep tabs on how all of this shakes out.
  14. It gave us *something* all right...that series...save for the Home Run Derby that broke out Sunday...oof. ...but here's hoping we can make this translate into wins this week.
