This is the fault of schools in the B1G who suck at football, and man there's a lot of them. Purdue, Maryland, Rutgers, Illinois, Indiana, Northwestern, Michigan State, that have no financial incentive to even play football in the first place, as they don't net much profits from it. As these universities and their budgets become more strapped with Covid-19, cutting football out of the budget works for them. These shit teams don't make the revenue that Ohio State does, and majority rules. There's more have-nots in CFB than haves.

Yeah we see the difference, but If this virus was killing millions of people, that would be one thing. The mainstream media cited all of these experts back in March that 2 million Americans may die by the end of the year. If that was true, sure, lets shut down football, but its not. I bet if you told people back in March that by August there would only be 150k americans dead, and the median age of the deceased is over 80, people would think cancelling the football season was absurd, and it is, absolutely absurd.

Dude, shut the hell up. What did the media get wrong? Oh, I dunno. "Experts estimate that 2 to 3 million Americans may die to coronavirus." CNN circa March 2019.

These young men are far safer on the football field than the people, especially your older parents and grandparents, that go to walmart. Young men ages 18-22 are far more likely to die or have long lasting effects from a car accident than from covid. Hell, they are more likely to be injured or killed by gun violence than from covid. If they are concerned with passing covid to their relatives, then keep their distance, hell don't most football players live on campus away from their elder family members to begin with?

My GF works in a hospital, she got it. Meanwhile before she showed any symptoms we were doing normal BF/GF stuff, living together, sleeping in the same bed, etc, use your imagination. Once she started showing symptoms the hospital tested her, and it was positive. I was required to be tested twice per my employer, and I never got it. Never got sick, nothing. Now I remember how "contagious" the media made this virus out to be, and surely with my simple anectdote, I should have gotten sick right?

Young men ages 18-22 are far more likely to die in a car accident or due to gun violence than they are from Covid-19. Just like driving a car, taking precautions against covid should be based on personal responsibility, rather than destroying our entire society and culture because 150,000 people died of a virus in the span of 6 months, where the median age of the deceased is over 80, which exceeds the lifespan of the average american. H1N1 killed more, and we had that horrible 2011 season that wasn't cancelled.

This sucks, because we were going to win it all this year.

Yes. Dont schedule NDSU as a power 5 team. Am I angry at Oregon? No. And what else are we supposed to talk about in May when there is literally nothing else to talk about? Good God what a tough crowd, what happened to this place?
Comment 26 May 2020
Right? And instead of telling me why my prediction is wrong I get DV'd. Probably by people who have never even heard of Trey Lance. They will in a few months. He will be the best QB on the field that day by a mile. Oregon is going to start that transfer from Boston College.

Amen. If the NFL is the only football I get I might take up another hobby. 

Comment 26 May 2020

I don't think the whole season would be shut down. The reason the NBA ended so abruptly was because there wasn't any testing available. Now if a player comes down with it, you can test entire teams and quarantine positive players accordingly.

Comment 26 May 2020

Well, this is under the assumption that widespread testing will be available as the season starts, I don't see the season starting without it honestly. Players would be tested weekly, maybe multiple times a week, thus eliminating the need to quarantine the whole team. 

Comment 26 May 2020

I was thinking that same thing. What sort of strategies will teams take to ensure entire position groups don't get wiped out. Not allowing first and second teams to come into contact with each other.

Comment 26 May 2020

For just that team or the whole NCAA? It could happen both ways. This could also affect teams disproportionately, where some teams may experience an outbreak while others don't have a single case. If some teams experience an outbreak that could lead to forfeiting games.
