Come on guys. It's a little late for April fool's jokes.
I don't know why they can't play it now without fans. It's gotta be extremely low risk. You're barely around anyone during golf. If there's no fans, there wouldn't have to be that many staff around as well. Surely they could make it happen if they really wanted to. Glad they're at least trying to still do it though.
I couldn't have said it any better. The deaths will probably never stop and obviously you can't stay locked down forever. Eventually, we'll have to accept the risk and move on.
I know we want to try and prevent as many deaths as possible, but I truly do believe that at some point the question has to be asked: is this still worth it? I understand some are going to think that's selfish, cold, etc. like you said. The way I see it though is that the way we're living right now is barely living at all. There has to be a way to balance being health conscious with resuming normalcy. You can open everything back up while still advocating washing hands / social distancing. I believe it's possible to do both. It doesn't have to be an extreme shut down of everything.
I'm going forward with the assumption that sports will never resume again until proven otherwise. There's no way they'll resume as long as death keeps happening, and that probably won't ever stop. I've completely lost hope at this point.
I doubt there's any chance of it still being held later. A lot of guys will prolly start signing agents / training for the draft. I think it's over.I held out slim hope it would survive, but I'm not surprised this happened.
Play it. People are overreacting. This will be over in a few weeks. All it took was for one group to start cancelling and then everyone felt obligated to follow cause they're afraid they'll look bad if they don't. It'd be nice if more would make a stand and say, yeah we're not changing our plans just cause the media wants everyone to freak out. I give props to the PGA for continuing with the Players Championship.
So do they lose their autobid
Fair point. I hate to see people leave at the last minute (players or coaches) and disrupt the whole team. So that's what I'd like to see minimized. I'm all for freedom, but there should be some rules in place, like a timeframe when you have to make a choice. I don't like just having it open for someone to transfer all year long.
Not a fan. Creates too much chaos and uncertainty. How are coaches supposed to manage their roster when you have no idea whose going to stick around? To me, the bottom line is kids shouldn't take choosing a school lightly. It's not like picking what restaurant you want to eat at. It's a huge decision. Once that decision's made, they should stick with it, barring some extreme circumstance.
LSU at 10 is more believable to me than UGA at 2. LSU won't be nearly as good next year.
Not sure about that one. Brett McMurphy was hellt bent on dragging Urban through the shit.
Yeah. I'm never getting over this until we either win a natty or beat Clemson in a playoff game. That's just the way it is. It was way too big a game and way too big of a fuck-up by the refs for me to just blow it off and move on. I won't be over it until there's some sort of redemption.
I'd argue the refs blew two huge calls. The fumble and the Wade ejection. Sorry, I don't care what the rule book says, but you just don't make that targeting call, especially in a game of this magnitude. Auto 1st down and ejection of a key player in the first half. It was a normal hit on the QB. It's like a cop pulling someone over for going 2 mph over the speed limit. Technically, you can do it, but it's horseshit. Shoulda just been play on. Also, I thought targeting had to be on a defenseless player. Is that not correct? Lawrence obviously wasn't defenseless. It's just bullshit all around. That game really made me bitter towards sports in general now. It's like it's not even about who's the better team, but rather it's about who got fucked the least by the refs. That's who wins championships. Referees should not affect games.
The playoff has been around for such a short time period, that I don't analytics and history really matter. Anything can happen. If the playoff was around for a 100 years, then maybe I'd say there's something to some of this stuff.
They're a top 4 team. No doubt. It's still bullshit though they get to cruise through to the playoffs meanwhile the other teams had to go through battle after battle to get there. Playing cupcakes week after week makes it far less likely they'll have significant injuries too.
My god. Their schedule is even worse than I thought. There's prolly some group of 5 teams that had a tougher slate than that. Clemson's very fortunate the eye test is still a thing, cause their resume has absolutely nothing that screams playoff team.
I'm sure they'll be trying to hit the TEs on crossing routes similar to TTUN in the first half
I really hope Georgia doesn't win. Would be cool to see someone totally different in there like Utah.
I'm guessing he's burned out. He had a good thing going at Washington, even though this year was a bit of a rebuild. I'll be surprised if he's coaching elsewhere next year.
After just one year, which isn't even over yet? No way. Not sure this is really an upgrade anyways. I'd rather make a little less and be a coordinator at a top program.
Yes let's never kick a FG again when we need it cause we're scared of something that happened 3 years ago to a different team. Makes absolutely no sense. Why have a kicking unit if you're scared to use them? What are the odds of that shit happening again? Extremely slim. Just pad the lead at that point.
No it's not even remotely the same. Up 2 TDs basically means you can't lose in regulation at that point. It's idiotic to do anything other than kick a FG. There's no reason to show a lack of faith in the kicking unit this year. Let them do their thing. As others have said, if you absolutely must run the ball then give to JK. Fields shouldn't have run it a single time in the 2nd half.
I'll be surprised if it's a total blowout. Everything is on the line for both teams. I expect PSU to have a chip on their shoulder, especially considering no one is picking them and the line is ridiculous.
