For those doubting that football will be in trouble, the way you should look at it isn't that this current lockdown/distancing stuff will continue nonstop from now until August or September.  Most experts predict the virus will slow down during the summer (as most of these viruses do), but that there very likely will be a resurgence in the fall.  So, if we still don't have a vaccine or proven treatment, then football will suffer the same fate basketball, baseball, etc have.  

So, the best bet is to hope that the current vaccines being tested are A) effective and B) able to be produced quickly and in massive quantities, and C) people in this country will actually get the vaccine without being forced to.

Very likely, the current lockdowns will end early in the summer. The fear is that there will be a fall resurgence of Covid, and if there's still no vaccine or approved cure, then football will be in trouble.  

Plus, there's a fear that if this drags into June or July, they would at least have to push back the start of the season or shorten it in order to give teams enough time to hold fall camps.

My two have already been mentioned

Pulp Fiction - in my opinion, best dialogue in a movie, ever.  I've rewatched it so many times I can almost quote it from start to finish

One of my favorite quotes, of many: "Well I'm a mushroom-cloud-layin' motherf***er, motherf***er! Every time my fingers touch brain I'm SUPERFLY T.N.T, I'm the GUNS OF THE NAVARONE. In fact, what the f*** am I doin' in the back? You're the motherf***er should be on brain detail. We're f***in' switchin' right now. I'm washin' the windows and you're pickin' up this ******'s skull."

Office Space - it's so relatable for anybody who has worked in that corporate cubicle environment. Can quote most of it, too.  

Peter: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man, two chicks at the same time, man.

Guys, we aren’t as desperate as some of you seem to think. We are Ohio State, we don’t need to take a huge risk on a kid with this many red flags. Nobody is that good at football, this kid is a cancer.

I don't know if they have ruined sports, but they have definitely had a negative impact on the consumption of sports over the past decade or so. In their defense, they are probably trying everything possible to generate viewers and readers and to save themselves from becoming obsolete.  They have to generate controversy because controversy improves ratings. Millions of people are cutting the cord every year, and that means billions of dollars in lost revenue for ABC/Disney/ESPN. 

I'm officially cutting the cord after Monday night's championship game.  The only time I watch ESPN or any sports network is during college football season anyway.  And outside of that, I hardly watch regular/cable TV at all.

Shows what you know.  I'm a degenerate gambler and even I won't watch Wake vs Duke.  Just because I gamble on a game doesn't mean I have to sit through the misery of watching it.

Dalton is in far north GA, not far from TN. Pretty rural area, so likely the level of competition isn’t great. Not sure what size his high school is.

Wait until the season starts, or until you see the prices drop considerably.

Calm down, JT Stan. He’s barely on a practice squad. It doesn’t matter what fans think, no NFL team thinks he’s good enough to be on an active roster.

We used to say this about California, now we are regularly getting kids from California. It’s cyclical. USC recruiting is trending down, so you see national powerhouse programs like OSU, Bama, and UGa going out there and stealing elite kids. It’s all about finding those opportunities. Same can be said for Texas the last ten years. Texas and A&M have been down, so look at all the Texas kids we’ve had.
