Our honor defend. We will fight to the end for O-HI-O. Huge thanks to all the people who fought for this season. I nominate Randy Wade to dot the I for the next time TBDBITL takes the fields.
How many times have we heard the vote will happen today, or has already happened? How many so-called journalists run with stories based on speculation and rumors, and report said information as fact? How many of them are in the echo chamber, each building their own story from the rumors/"facts" from another story?
I'm well past the point where I don't trust any of them, local, national or other-world. Journalism is no longer fact based, it is entertainment. It's about as useful as the condoms sold at novelty shops that say in fine print "for entertainment purposes only, not designed for actual use."
I am glad to see that 11W does not run articles by the hour with updates from "sources" claiming this happened or that happened.
Is this just fantasy?
I think Cedar Pointe should name its next roller coaster after this mess, "The B1G Disaster Express."
Any minute now.........
We might hear something this evening!
The latest from 2 great sources: Something could be announced by this evening concerning @big football and fall sports, and it is "quite positive." Oct.17 very much in play for FB start, 8 or 9 game schedule, not settled yet.— Tim May (@TIM_MAYsports) September 13, 2020
Warren has to consult the over-priced PR firm and draft a word salad announcement.
You give me so much hope FieldsofJreams. And I'll admit that the curiosity is killing me. Northwestern?
There are many of us Buckeye fans who have adopted Big Red as our second favorite team in the league. I can't wait to see what Frost can do with your team. I'll be rooting for you to win all but one game.
In Eastern PA, I wouldn't call it a shortage "per se". Depending on the time of day, the shelves are at least 50% empty and we still have a limit of 1 package per purchase. It's much better than March/April/May but no where near full capacity.
Good one Tony Stark. I think he's just some know nothing wanna be lawyer on Twitter. /s Or as Kerry Coombs would say #sarcasm #itsjustajoke #tommarsisthebest
I agree. He advertised his opinion before he heard the presentation from the medical subcommittee.
I heard that too and I am confused by his statement. A few days ago, Wisconsin said the football practices were suspended for 2 weeks because of Covid outbreaks. Does he mean 3 weeks from today, which would include about 10-12 more days of no practice?
If nothing else works, this is the best "carrot" that can be offered to the schools who don't want to play. Vote to play, opt out for your school, and share in the revenue. If you vote a hard no, then no soup for you. :)
This is another reason why the lack of transparency is so infuriating. What vote is needed to reinstate the season? Majority or super majority? Some report that 9 votes are needed to reinstate (supermajority) and others report that 8 (simple majority) are needed. Which one is it according to the bylaws?
I recall reading a story or two where an athlete changed his mind about opting out and rejoined his team. I think it's possible. But it would also depend on if the player maintained his amateur status or not.
Are they presenting the medical information along with proposed start dates? Or does the medical information stand alone, to be put in place "whenever" they resume athletics?
I think there's a greater chance of approval of the medical guidelines if it is NOT tied to a start date for this vote only. Rutgers, Northwestern, etc. might vote yes to approve specific guidelines if it is not tied to a start date.
Then, with specific medical guidelines in place, submit the start dates to the full COP/C.
I was very happy that TTUN was not on the list. It's helpful. After yesterday's comments, I think Schlissel passed the torch to Rutgers.
Sigh. I don't have much faith when I read this list.
I feel the same way.
Most lawyers don't advertise their arguments in advance. I think he's grandstanding to be part of the public pressure on Kevin Warren and the COP/C to change their decision on fall sports. Publicly questioning the decision making process, the validity of the vote, its just one more layer of pressure on the decision makers.
