    1) Not entirely sure why writers who lost out on spring ball and have resorted to a lifetime's worth of "best slot receivers of the 1995 SEC East" articles the last five months would root to get rid of what provides their profession.

    2) There have been plenty of examples of programs pulling writers access the last couple years because they were unhappy with a story that was written about the team. Highly doubt these conferences are suddenly scared of what may be written about them if they continue to play.
    The hoax goes deep!

        I have seen that argued both ways. As of now I would assume they have looked into it enough to figure the odds are in they favor but that is above my pay grade :-)

          • Pat Forde probably talked to someone in the Big Ten.

            Reports are coming out that the Big Ten is ready to cancel football entirely this year.

            • Rumor is they are worried about liability if anyone gets sick during the season. If that is what they discussed at their meeting they might as well cancel now waiting will only make things worse.

              • As they should be. Even if healthy 18-yos have a 0.1% CFR, that’s 1-2 deaths among the 1,700 football players in the big ten alone. We know BMI is a fairly good predictor of bad outcomes. Now you have something like a third of roster spots filled by down linemen. That 1-2 starts to balloon quickly.

                Now multiply those numbers by 20 to get a picture of just D-1A football. This is a bomb waiting to go off.

                    • Yeah ESPN is saying the Big Ten is ready to push to Spring but were testing the waters with the other conferences. Players in the South (like Trevor Lawrence) want to play and have taken to Twitter to say so. Their points are solid but they ignore reality in that they assume the players will act correctly on campus and be safer as such than they would be at home. In theory I can buy that but every piece of evidence shows people do what they want they dont give a crap about safety which is why we havent even ended the first wave yet.

                      I think the South is gonna force the issue and the Big Ten wont risk the backlash of postponing. I say it is 60/40 right now everything goes on as planned.

                      I wont watch mind you...I havent watched a game yet since they came back in the other sports. I didnt miss it when it was gone and these faux seasons do nothing for me.

                      edit: There are reports of players that have had issues after contracting the disease including myocarditis in players who get it. And Twitter is full of people who are saying the announcement from the Big Ten will come tomorrow and the reaction is about what you would expect.

                      The NCAA as we know it is about to change...

                        College football sources tell @SInow that the Big Ten is moving toward a decision to cancel the 2020 fall season, while engaging other Power 5 conferences on a uniform decision to be announced later this week.
                        #WeWantToPlay is going to throw a monkey wrench in this. The Southern Players for sure are all in on the season. I dont think the Big Ten has the balls to postpone alone and the Pac-12 doesnt bring enough clout. They need one of the southern conferences to join or all hell is gonna break loose...

                        The countdown has begun...the NCAA and the conferences are about to take a shot in the nuts no matter how this plays out. Honestly...if they want to play let them play. If they get sick though **** em.

                        • Isn’t southern teams playing each other the wankfest that the southern idiots want anyway?

                          Comment


                          • Yeah...but there are Northern players who want to play too. (I believe Justin Fields and other tOSU players want to play)

                            I dont think the Big Ten has the balls...and I doubt ESPN or BTN wants to deal with the loss of programming. If the players arent pushing for this and the fans arent the schools will look way worse if they shut down. The players want the right to make the decision themselves fine but they lose all sympathy from me.

                            edit: #WeWanttoPlay is trending huge and the players and coaches from all over are behind it. The Big Ten will back down.
