    It seems pretty clear, based upon some of the other stories that I've seen, that this is a choice as opposed to some sort of medical or religious reason. This statement prompted responses from University administrators to remind everyone of their vaccine mandate, and those same administrators have been quoted as saying that they've had numerous discussions with the coach regarding his decision not to vaccinate and why it's important for everyone at the University to be vaccinated. This doesn't sound to me like any sort of medical excuse.
    He apparently is a Q believer and full on MAGA. He isn't releasing his reasoning because he doesn't want to face the backlash to his stupidity.

    This isn't his first controversy. He kicked a dude off the team for joining the Pac-12 Unity group asking for fairer treatment of athletes...and was caught on tape.

            I would say who cares how they feel? They chose to dance with the devil when they moved. They had to know that within college football, but particularly within the SEC, anything is possible in the name of making more money.

            • Why would the $EC not want A&M? They're another huge budget lunkhead factory and perfect for it.

                No one cares how aTm feels and the SEC should definitely not care how they feel. The SEC is a machine built to make money that is why aTm stabbed all their rivals in the back to join. This is just karmic justice.

                By 2030 conferences will no longer exist. Divisional Football will be how the MegaPowers set it up. The NCAA is on its death rattle because once football abandons it (and they obviously are) it holds no value for the money sports. A new version will bubble up for the Olympic Sports maybe but the NCAA gambled and lost this one badly.

                Good for the athletes...terrible for fans of what college football used to be. Should have never abandoned the bowl system. Chasing the money of the BCS and the tourny made this inevitable

                  College football has sucked for fans since the 1980s.

                  It took that long to recover from kicking the Ivies out of real D-1 in 1971.

                  • The rumor is this is because E$PN and Fox told the Big XII the money in their next deal would not be on par with other leagues and suggested Texas and OU to look elsewhere.

                    • Yeah the closer we get to a Super League, the less interesting the NC race gets. I mean, yes, there was a subset of schools who clearly had a better chance of winning it all then others, but at least we kept alive the hope that another school could have a miracle run and make it. But the more the subset becomes institutionalized, the less I really care which of the super-schools that I have no association with and have never been within 50 miles of (I think) wins each year. I'll still care about my team, but really at a certain point do I care which of Bama/Clemson/OSU/LSU/FSU wins the roll of the die that year?

                      A nationwide super-league also defeats the fun of regional conferences. Each had their own feel, both in the style of play and in the culture and feel of that part of the country. Each had some contenders and some bottom-feeders and you saw what each produced. A nationwide super-league has no feeling other than spectacle!spectacle!spectacle! and ratings!ratings!ratings!.

                          I’ve always felt that some sports like hockey and soccer are better off without the NCAA.

                            I think college hockey is wonderful but it would be nice if the athletes actually attended classes and were functionally capable of gaining entry on their academic merit.

                            And before anybody whines about Ivy Elitism we've had plenty of door stops too.

                              It won't cost us it, it'll just make them more like higher-quality intramural/club teams. If you like the sport and want to follow them, they'll still be there in some regard, just without the over-the-topness and money from before. So kinda like they were probably meant to be when college sports popped up 120+ years ago. Of course then they were the only show in town and still pulled in 80K people even when it was two small schools. With all of the alternatives for entertainment around now that even pro sports have trouble competing with, it will be much much more sparsely attended in general. But in the end that should be the least concern of an educational institution when you get down to it.
