#4 has been happening for awhile. Thousands of businesses will never open their doors again, tens of thousands more burnt their savings just to survive. Supply chains are messed up beyond belief. Families without jobs struggle to get by. You really can’t put a number to the financial suffering that has happened. Financial suffering leads to suicides, drug abuse, domestic violence, and an overall lower quality of life among numerous other things. I believe in hindsight, this may be worse than Covid itself.
The seatbelt isn’t a true comparison because 1. You get to choose if you want to and 2. A majority of the population is far more likely to die from a car crash than covid.
Tex, I have long been in the “Covid isn’t nearly what they want you to believe camp.” But you’re getting DV cause you’re just being an asshole. Sheesh
It’s all fear and paranoia now.
If I were on that team it wouldn’t count for me unless we were in the top 8. It doesn’t mean anything when it’s just handed to you.
Bucks19 is getting DV’s by people who have probably never been there. I went there in 2018, and found out at the gate we had fake tickets (so real the scanner read them, just said it was the wrong date). Anyways, on our way back, met a couple fans who were nothing but welcoming. Couple even offered us free beer and food after hearing what happened. Sure, some students where assholes but I would expect that from anywhere, and we kinda reveled in it so it was good. But overall the PSU fans were great in person, even if online is a different story.
Not to mention they lost Brady, who was behind their entire offensive renovation. I don’t get the hype
Tatum would’ve been ejected after the first defensive series lmao
Because hospitalizations and death rates are falling, so cases is all they can fall back on to keep the pandemic real.
It was all in good fun and still is for most of them lol some just don’t know when to stop. You’ll have that with about any fan base though
Once you’re flying though, what does it truly matter if you’re flying out from Purdue to Nebraska? What’s the actual impact of that? Pretty much nothing.
Seriously. Cleveland Indians fans were easily the most annoying fans of my college years, and I was friends with a Yankee fan... They all act like the last 4-5 years are the only things they remember, and like the Indians are a premier, top 3 baseball team. Some of them were unbearable
Personally, I think Day’s strategy with a little bit of Urban’s mixed in is the perfect recipe. Offer and go hard after the top 4-5 guys, and use them as a springboard for the rest of the class. And then you can slow play some of the lower guys that you might be interested knowing you can likely make up ground later.
Nope Covid might be worth it.
For that same reason, a guy like Prince might have gotten a chance to prove himself this year that he might not have gotten in years past. Whether a whole year from someone sitting out, or just a game or two because someone had a positive case. Not to mention the ever present chance of someone ahead of him getting hurt. Players in Princes position need every chance they can get, and there might only be one chance to prove yourself. If you don’t take advantage of it, then you’re out of luck. Hindsight is 20/20 but if that shot shows up and he’s not there, he might regret it.
With the top graphic, I don’t think lots of people full comprehend just how many rats 10,000 is. I mean it’s just hard to envision that many animals. So many rats would just simply overwhelm things. I’m taking them and the wolves. That means 80 things are trying to kill me, so each one has to deal with 125 rats while the 15 wolves work together to pick of the weaker ones. I’m feeling pretty safe.
Problem is there is a group who doesn’t differentiate between the two
At 20% capacity, very few if any students will be in the stands.
Then name a single thing I said that was wrong
Not sure why I’m getting DV’s because not a single thing in that post is factually wrong. Well I do know why, and it’s because some people can’t tolerate an opinion that doesn’t match their own.
The cold and flu season will be worse than usual just from the fact that isolating people makes their immune systems weaker. We’ve worsened that problem among so many others by trying to prevent one that has been using super inflated case and death numbers in order to tell us how “bad” it is.
Breaking news: every single one of those MLB players, as well as future college football players, NFL players etc, will be completely fine. Are they going to get the virus? Yes. We’re all going to get it. It’s time we accept that fact. Hospitals aren’t getting overwhelmed, they’re not even close to capacity. It’s beyond time to let life go back to normal, and that includes sports.
I thought there would be a twist, a catch or something, but no, the CDC is really recommending glory holes for sex...
As someone who is a bit on the younger side, I can honestly say I’ve never heard of Chief Illiniwek. But from looking him up, I feel like he could’ve been a badass mascot. Get someone with a lot of energy and character into that position, and they’d be pretty cool.
There is a big difference between baseball and basketball. In basketball, yes upsets are common, hence the March madness. But generally speaking, you can expect the better team to win more often than in baseball. Winning 100 games a year in MLB is considered very good. That’s a winning percentage of 61.7%. That would translate to roughly a 20-12 record, which is decidedly average for a power 5 team. My point? The better team in baseball is much more likely to lose a single game than a similar set of teams in basketball.
