Why would Tuff be 60+ yard downfield?
Because we know they're not driving into the red zone on us first series
I dont get the logic because there isn't any there. But then again I'm one of those people who think "public health measures" should protect PUBLIC health. And that an event not open to the public is considered "private".
Hey now, lighting could still theoretically strike the dome, causing a power outage that could cause players to run into each other. As small as that risk is, it's infinitely more likely to happen than fans getting covid from a game they don't go to
Whether you or anyone else got sick is starting to be irrelevant. I'm gonna go ahead and assume you are an adult. Covid is not new anymore. We all know how to get it, who is at risk, and what symptoms you will show if you are symptomatic. At some point you have to live your life, which at a minimum involves making decisions for yourself. If you want to be riskier while I stay at home with a mask on, that's absolutely your choice to make, not a politician's
Tread lightly before saying what we are all thinking
Yeah, that one was a copy and paste job. I dont have any problem with all the mayors that didn't sign this garbage, though.
This was my take. Only that when you add up all the illogic its clearly just pushing an anti football agenda. This is a hail mary from Coronabros.
Mayors of five cities with Big Ten institutions did not sign onto the letter: James Cahill, mayor of New Brunswick, New Jersey, and Brian C. Wahler, mayor of Piscataway, New Jersey (Rutgers University); Diane Marlin, mayor of Urbana, Illinois, and Deborah Frank Feinen, mayor of Champaign, Illinois (University of Illinois); and Leirion Baird, mayor of Lincoln, Nebraska (University of Nebraska)

Dear Big Ten Conference officials,
On behalf of the Offices of the undersigned Mayors of Big Ten college communities, please see the message below:
During these unprecedented times, we must come together to share ideas, come up with creative solutions and make sure our communities stay safe and healthy. We are at a pivotal moment in history, and protecting our community members should be, and is, our top priority.
We are proud to have vibrant college sports programs in our communities. These programs help increase tourism and development, drive business revenues up and foster a sense of community far beyond the universities in which they are associated.
We would all like to express our gratitude towards our individual universities who have worked in tandem with us to address the unique, and complicated issues facing our cities. Their commitment to working with our communities has been essential in slowing the spread.
With that being said, the COVID-19 crisis continues to present challenges in our communities. While we are all excited for football games to begin, we must accept that this activity poses potential new obstacles as we attempt to slow the spread of this virus.
We know the history of football games within our cities. They generate a lot of activity, social gatherings and the consumption of alcohol. These activities within our communities have also been associated with an increased spread of COVID-19. We, as cities, continue to respond to issues as they arise, respective of the individual rules put in place within our regions. To help us slow the spread and be prepared for increased activity, we humbly request a few practical
measures that the Big Ten Conference can take to ensure we have the tools we need to combat
the spread of COVID-19:
While you implement data-driven decisions based on test positivity and population positivity rates to hold games, practices and develop the meeting schedule, we request that these decisions are also made with defined metrics for overall community population positivity rates and test positivity. County and city health officials from Big Ten communities met on Thursday, Oct. 15 to further discuss metrics used in each community, and to finalize guidelines for play,
based on positivity rates of the community, not just the team. We support our public health officials in their efforts and urge you to consider their request. Please include the communities where you will be holding games in your conversations and assign a metric to this that is similar to what has already been laid out for your teams. We ask that you work with local and county health officials in these communities to define a population positivity rate, where hosting a football game that would bring increased activity into the community is no longer safe to do. We do not expect this metric to be in line with the current standard for the team; however, similar standards being applied to the communities this will affect is necessary to keep people safe.
We also request that the Big Ten Conference release game times and schedules as early as possible and make it a priority to host less or no games that take place in the evening or late afternoon, as these start times are associated with increased activity.
We appreciate your consideration of these measures and hope to see action on them soon.

I would also like to say please forgive me mods I'm not trying to be political. Especially when I say: THE MAYOR OF LANSING HAS NO FUCKING BUSINESS SIGNING THIS. If you try to find a big ten school in "Lansing" Michigan you will be unsuccessful. Have a great night everyone.

If he's respecting the historical Mormon culture, He should jokingly keep weaing the I love mormon girls shirt
Everyone stop complaining. Randy Wade is allowed at the Shoe while buck I guy is not. And we get football this week. Im good with it
We faced an SEC team in the playoffs last year and boy did they fight dirty. Their colors were white and black
You're crazy. Clemson dropped 73 on Ga Tech and they were giving QB snaps to their punter. Theyre clearly a top 4 team even with a slip up.
I've been kinda thinking about psu getting that fourth spot since all the chaos but I do think a 2 loss UGA would probably give clemson a better game.
BUT! What if Trevor got the rona right before and PSU stole a win from Clempsin before we could?
Luke Fickell will end up at a UT. The question is which UT
7-2 on the season though. A 7-1 Nebraska team would go to Indy
He had the craziest look in his eyes, and at one point he said "lets get it on"
Rumor is LSU QB Brennan is out possibly for the whole season. I wonder if that is going to factor in for Leigh that he might not be seeing the same offense this year that he would be playing in next
You are forgetting about a second big ten team sitting at 8-1 competing with a 9-2 Uga. And then what if someone like Kentucky wins after picking little Stetson 4 times and you have the SEC East division champ sitting at 8-3? Arkansas or Ole Piss can easily resolve the A&M problem and I am fully serious from what I've seen
If I was Wisconsin or Penn State I would be really happy with what I'm seeing in the SEC.
The pitt QB is out, im guessing the rona got him
Beating Clemson is bigger than a national championship at this point
Thats the only year that Michigan gets to win The Game until we have two 3's.
I dont make the rules, I just think them up and write them down.
