Spartan - I think Fleck is a hell of a coach, especially for a program like Minnesota. Recruiting at an all time high for their program and it showed in the disparity in athletes when they played a similar program in Ga Tech in their bowl game. I think Fleck just needs his QB and he doesn’t have him yet, that’s why I don’t think Minnesota is a legit contender to win the West but should be a bowl team once again.

Minnesota isn’t terrible, they beat their archrivals Wisconsin for the first time in 15 years last year and completely dominated Ga Tech in their bowl game. If you go by 247Sports, PJ Fleck is recruiting at an all time high for that program. I think Fleck will be there for a long time to come.

I am fascinated to watch this race all season long. I think if Hunter Johnson plays up to his 5* potential, Northwestern should be the favorite. If not Northwestern, I think Nebraska is next team up. I can also see Iowa, Wisconsin, and Purdue winning the division. This is gonna be fun!

Brewster - I would also be willing to bet a large amount of money concussions were a lot more prevalent in the 70’s and 80’s than they are now. Also, researchers themselves have readily admitted that they are still unsure the affect of sub concussive hits have on the brain, they still haven’t been able to prove a scientifically proven link. 

Also, saying CTE related suicide is a huge stretch that has never been proven.

Brewster - I’ll leave it at this, I don’t think you’ve done the research you think you’ve done on CTE. Go Bucks! Go Browns!

I’m here for you.

Follow Vegas Refund. Hit around 58% on both CFB and NFL last year

Brewster - Players are bigger, stronger, and faster than ever, that can’t be debated. However, concussions were down 29% in 2018 from the 2019 season. Although players are bigger, faster, and stronger, because of rules changes, the players aren’t generally producing high intensity collisions to one’s head or neck area as much. I stand strongly by my point that because of advanced helmet technology, practice restrictions, changes in tackling fundamentals, rules changes, and advanced research leading to the advent of things like concussion protocol, the game is safer than its ever been. Frankly, I don’t know how you can make an argument otherwise.

Brewster - I’m not sure what point you’re getting at, and I don’t mean that sarcastically. I don’t think football is safe, but that’s why we love to watch it, and that’s why players love to play it. We love the physicality of it. I don’t think I would say it’s the most dangerous sport, definitely think boxing/mma at the least are more dangerous sports. Obviously there are a lot more football players than boxers or mixed martial artists so the amount of people who get injured will obviously be higher.

Youth participation where I live are at record highs. The game has never been safer. Of course there are those people who as soon as they here something might be dangerous (which we’ve always known about football) they’ll wrap their kids in bubble wrap and head for the hills

John Dorsey has completely revamped the Cleveland Browns roster, and therefore there are fewer spots up for grabs this year than in any previous year in the last 20 years. It doesn't surprise me Sprinkle was waived, but as always, best of luck! Buckeye for life!
