I'll tune in to the game at 7:30 but will not be watching these annoying, giggly, talking heads prior to that.
I think Miami is very overrated. Clemson wins by 3 touchdowns.
D'Eriq King throws at least 2 interceptions.
I think Clemson/Miami will tell us more about Miami than it will Clemson.
If he were on the Chiefs I guarantee Andy Reid could draw up a way to maximize his productivity.
But Harbaughs will Harbaugh.
Concussions are more likely, yes. But how many personnel will that impact? The 30 or so that see contact during a game?
A communicable virus can impact every single person this team, from the coach to the water boy. Not saying that I think it WILL.
But we don't know at this point.
For all we know it is a manufactured virus sent here by identical outer-space aliens so they can harvest our bodies in 10 years.
Or it could just be the flu with a few different mutations.
I missed that part of your post. In that case I agree with you.
Anyway, I'll crawl back in my hole now.
Fair, I agree. But getting injured by getting hit repeatedly, versus getting injured because you're standing in a huddle...I think the risk is a little different.
Granted, I'm not a COVID-bro and I agree with evaluating risk versus reward when considering how to live your life in 2020, but there are some unknowns.
Good logic with your predictions.
But as a guess, I predict Nebraska will be a 7-8PM and @PSU will be a 5:30-6PM game.
Michigan/Minn will be 3:30.
Cancellations due to COVID can't possibly be a good thing for anyone. And these human beings that play football could potentially end up seriously ill.
Cancellations due to plagues of crickets are OK.
Probably a safe play. But the Big Ten's Covid protocol mandates positive players sit-out for 21 days. The Big Ten is what worries me.
I know other conferences has something similar, though maybe not as strict. Trevor Lawrence or any valuable player could pop positive right before Notre Dame or ACC Championship or a Playoff game. Just never know.
Crazy year to bet on futures.
More likely than ever to have impactful stars having to sit out games.
Never enjoyed watching BTN, unless I HAD to watch because we were playing Rutgers or something. BTN has always seemed cheap and tacky, like a High School news broadcast.
Also, I hate the Big Ten now and am embarrassed to be associated with this conference. So no, I won't tune-in unless it's my only option.
Watched him against UAB last week and he looked very average. His stats didn't accurately reflect his performance. Most of his passes >10 yards were well over/underthrown.
He will throw at least 3 interceptions against Clemson. And I have Miami losing at least 3 games this year.
Won't win the Heisman with 3 losses.
My guess is Illinois and Nebraska from the west. All the teams in the east. Probably play the east games first. Hopefully Penn State and Michigan aren’t back to back weeks.
No clue on the when and where though. So I guess I’m no help to you.
I was hoping it would be the last game but now that I think about it, it should be the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
If we look at the Big Ten schedule released in August, and take away Purdue and Iowa (like is expected) that would mean we'd play Michigan on November 28...assuming the schedule is the same otherwise.
I would fear that our next game, whoever it may be, would be a trap game. I prefer to keep TTUN as the "last" game on the schedule, aside from Championships and Playoffs.
I heard, "We're set to announce..." but honestly I can't see their mouths so for all we know it's a doctored video.
Cautiously optimistic though.
Western South Dakota is better, but Sioux Falls will do. I'll be there.
Hard to see us start 17 October and play 10 Games + Conference Championship, with no bye-weeks, and still make the playoffs, unless the CFP delays a week or two. Which would push the Playoffs to mid-January.
Hoping for 8 game schedule.
I think Nebraska is gone after this fiasco...and I don't blame them. But I would vote to send Rutgers, Maryland with them. Bring in Notre Dame, or at least Cincy.
I have to think Maryland and Rutgers, have cost the big Ten more than what those schools are actually worth to the conference.
I can't see Ohio State leaving the big Ten anytime soon. But I wouldn't complain if we did.
Is that true? I didn't know that.
So teams are allowed to only play 12 regular season games, or how is the rule written?
Notre Dame has received a lot of shit for being Independent. I never understood why they don't just play 13 games to offset a lack of conference championship, but I have always liked that they can play whoever they want year-in and year-out. We have mandatory games with Rutgers, Maryland, and Indiana every single year, and half of the B1G West is hot garbage. That's 3-4 conference games every year that we will get absolutely no kudos for, plus about 2 non-conference games. I get that the Ohio State brand will give us the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the CFP Committee, but that's really only if we are undefeated, or one-loss B1G champs.
I would much rather see us play Cincinnati over Maryland, Syracuse over Rutgers, Notre Dame over Indiana, etc.
Being Independent would be awesome in my opinion.
But it will never happen.
I would imagine they'd meet via Zoom and not actually in-person...if they do "meet" today.
