Risk to college athletes is only slightly higher than the risk of the flu. (No, I’m not saying that covid and the flu are the same! It’s risk varies by age group.) This isn’t about player safety.

"violations of the separation of church and state"

NCAA violations? Are you thinking of some law?

I think the team has a certain religious culture to it. But as powerful as Dabo and Clemson football might be, I don't think they've managed to get the state of South Carolina to adopt an official religion. I'm far from a fan of the church that team associates with; I'm just saying this isn't even close to state-sponsored religion.

Key quote:

OSU has had 43 players go in the top three rounds of the draft over the last 10 years, and 14 of them were rated at three stars or below — more than any other program. Six of those players went in the first round.

I have to disagree. I think they’ll give Frost plenty of time, even more than TTUN is giving Harbaugh. They wouldn’t get anyone better, and Nebraska isn’t an attractive draw anymore. With Frost, they could build over 5-10 years. Without him, they would probably descend even further in the West. But, yeah, he’s screwed some things up...
