I hope he's right but the things he are saying to justify his belief are irrelevant. Rising up to the challenges of the past (space race, Normandy, etc) required a unified country. We don't have that right now and lack leadership at the highest levels within our country. Right now it's absolutely unlikely we have eradicated this disease by August because it's impossible to do that until we have a vaccine. Social distancing isn't being used to prevent the spread, just slow it down. That means a longer, less intense period of time in which the disease is present.

Coming in here just assuming Stroud is the better college quarterback and Jack Miller is in the past?

Your topic should be about both of them as they are both in the exact same situation.

Hoak is the backup until further notice and it's not even a question at this point with the lack of spring ball.

We aren't overly reliant on the Transfer Portal. We've just had two BIG needs recently: one because of players transferring out/going to the NFL, and one because of a bad luck achilles injury. The third big transfer was because we're obviously going to take an all-conference lineman with experience if he bolsters a certain position of possible weakness.

You put a lot of thought into your post which is appreciated, but totally unnecessary and mostly overthinking of the situation.

The answer to all of your questions about whether our coaching staff uses the portal for needs, not wants, is an obvious yes. We have one of the best coaching staffs in the country and they are 3 for 3 when it comes to getting guys who will truly benefit the program (still pending on Sermon, but it looks that way due to our RB room without him).

One problem that will really hold the season up is that each state has had different rules regarding isolation and by September some states may be almost in the clear, or at least in control of the spread, and other states may still be huge hotspots.

Some schools may be ready to host games and others it absolutely wouldn't be possible. Let alone having players fly across the country (unless they all got private planes just for the team).

One thing you should do: shop around. You have a period of a couple weeks where all credit pulls for refinance options (every time you fill out an application it's a hard pull on your credit) will be bundled into one pull. Every time you have a hard credit pull your credit score will increase, but banks understand you'll want to shop for the best rate around so they consider any pulls within a two week period all part of a single pull.

Get estimates from multiple bank as it couldn't hurt you, and actually gives you some bargaining power. You may be able to find a rate close to the 2.75% (it won't be that low without buying points) without having to put extra money into it.

A few weeks ago we went from our 3.5% 7/1 Adjustable Rate Mortgage to a 3.215% 30 year (we've only had the house for <3 years) and it will save us almost $200/month and we'll pay back the closing costs in 15 months. No money was required from us as the closing costs were rolled into the loan.

Are there really that many teams that went undefeated through their conference last year? At most I'd assume there could be 5 undefeated conference champions (unlikely but possible), and one or two others. But there wouldn't be a huge number of undefeated teams.

Have there ever been even close to 10 teams, in one season, that have gone through their conference schedule undefeated in the last 6 years?

Comment 01 Apr 2020

The only problem is that some of the schools who wouldn't be getting paid literally need that game to fund their athletic departments. I'm sure there would be something worked out as they'd need that money.

And you might think they aren't a big deal but you could have said that about Purdue a couple years ago, or even Iowa.

And WHEN those games are played also matters too. If Alabama is playing Texas A&M or Arkansas before rivalry weekend it definitely makes a difference. Getting rid of a terrible, terrible opponent before they enter the end of the season could have a much larger impact.

Can we post other threads when we are infuriated that people do the jobs people pay them to do because we don't like how they are doing it?

Asking for a friend.

Only problem with that team was the coaching but unfortunately that's a huge part of the equation.

You put those same guys on the field with our current coaching staff and they would have run through the country with little opposition.

Comment 31 Mar 2020

While I love the end result, I really don't see us outscoring that LSU team this year with our 2019 team. I actually think the 2014 team matches up better with them since our LBs included guys like Darron Lee who could cover some of their WRs.

Comment 30 Mar 2020

He's got a ton of it. But I wonder how close of a comp Zeke is to him? Zeke just appears to be a bit more of a stronger, physical back but that's comparing a Junior in high school to what Zeke was in college.

Comment 30 Mar 2020

6-1 and 210? Even a year in the dojo with Mick will get him to 220 (if his body/speed can carry it well) and that's a B10-sized back for sure.

Dude is going to be a monster. Is he as fast as Zeke on the long speed? If so they could end up essentially the same size and speed which is terrifying.

I'm not concerned since getting the virus taken care of is a way higher priority. But I do expect the season to be impacted somehow.

This isn't going to be over in a couple months, that's not how a virus like this works in a country like ours where people don't listen.
