  1. If that's the case, you may want to consider getting out more. Click bait journalism, lowest common denominator type of tactic to rile up one fan base and draw the affection of all those who hate them. That's all. Nothing worth a legitimate reaction. I don't hate on Forde. I am sure that he is soaking in sufficient self loathing for what he has become as a journalist.
  2. Those were the writers words, not hers. Notice a lack of a direct quote. That, in and of itself, is significant. Perhaps some are being less than accurate with their language, calling it a "vote" when it was more of a discussion. Seems like a lot of things are being done and said in order to not say something... Lots of people trying to avoid making definitive statements.
  3. ...do we need to change our name to the "Cornplanters"?
  4. Planting season? Why is this significant to college football?
  5. Realistically, the odds of a highly effective vaccine are very small. A "sort of effective" vaccine is likely the best we're going to get...
  6. I think all entities are going to be happier to have a piece of some $$$ than to have no $$$ at all. That's the ace card in this deal... The alternative to a weird situation is no situation. In that case, weird has a chance. Looking at it from Big Ten perspective, do they have anything to lose if Nebraska and OSU and Michigan form some sort of "wildcat" league and just have football games? Their premiere teams are getting some exposure and some $$$ while the Big Ten can hide safely behind the fact that they canceled the season should liability problems arise. Effectively, th
  7. If some kids don't want to play, ok. There are plenty who would love to take their place. NEXT!
  8. This is simply politically motivated conspiracy theory B.S. It's been tried, it's been studied (multiple investigations with adequate methodology) and it's been dismissed as ineffective and mildly dangerous due to side effects (cardiac as I recall). Refusing to believe a scientifically validated answer just makes said "believer" look dumb.
  9. Disagree. Option B is a "free for all". Option A is a structured and contained process organized by professionals. Did you see that they're moving athletes into one dorm aka "controlled environment" once football camp starts? This illustrates Option A differing from Option B in making the athletes safer. Have you ever travelled with a big team of NCAA athletes? Very little is done "off script" from hotel to meals and flights. It's the same reason that teams stay in motels during home games, to more closely control the environment... A chartered flight would make it
  10. Don't you have a cloud you should be yelling at?
  11. That's probably your best play at this point.
  12. ^^^ You assert that I claimed the NCAA can control players lifestyles. I never mentioned the NCAA as the controlling entity. Straw man. You're welcome.
  13. Straw man fallacy, that would be your most common fault.
  14. It's an environment which can be controlled much more than the average student. The rest is semantics.
  15. Valid point, though hopefully rapid testing may help to mitigate this risk on game days...
  16. Where did I claim the NCAA can control player lifestyle? It's the university, the coaches, and teammates where things CAN be controlled to a certain extent.
  17. We cannot say this for certain given the multitude of variables in play. We have to compare Option A, "playing football" to Option B, "something other than playing football". We know that Option A would include extensive testing and symptom monitoring, a heavily controlled environment, heavily structured and controlled lifestyle and living conditions. It would also include high exertion respiration in close contact to a large number of other people. What we don't know is much about Option B, but would have to make some assumptions that it would be "norma
  18. As a Husker fan, I'd love to see him commit and state his undying love for the Big Red. But remembering what it's like to be 18 and if I had the opportunities he has, you're damn right I'd take the free fancy trips to the A list schools before officially making my decision.
  19. This certainly changes things. If the PAC 12 plays, despite the political climate in most of its territory, and the fact that California just became #1 in Covid cases, then the other major conferences surely have to feel emboldened to do the same.
  20. I'm fairly confident a diagnosis of CTE can be confirmed based upon your last two posts. Either that, or you have a gas leak in your home and you should go outside and call for help.
  21. Jason, you were far more patient with that mess than I would have been. I'm impressed.
  22. That's an unreasonable standard that nobody is suggesting. No intelligent person would assert that there must be 0% risk of harm before an activity can be resumed. That's just plain stupid. Determining the degree of risk certain activities pose, and weighing that against possible gain is not unique to this pandemic. This is just a different variable.
  23. Of course it isn't. I didn't say that. Don't be dense. I didn't say any of those things. Major college football, a multi billion dollar industry, has certain resources and the ability to control, test, and trace at an incredibly different level than any youth sports league in the country.
  24. College football is probably the most difficult sport to be able to pull this off. No doubt about that, but with enough $ on the line, maybe they'll come up with a solution. I would bet my dollar on NOT having college FB this year.
