"CFB 2020 "


          

Mostly JV teams until Sept 26th when the SEC kicks off.

So far everyone looking rusty as hell.

B1G clusterfuck still not resolved but rumors swirling today that a mid-October start is on the table.

PAC 12...not even sure that conference still exists.

The Pac 12 has been doing its thing and is working to partner with a company for testing. I think they stay on schedule for a Spring start but they could start sooner and I hope they do. I hope the Big Ten, Pac 12, and MWC stick together and all start together.

I honestly think Trump and other Big Ten Star Governors are only doing this because the Big Ten has a new commissioner and he is also black so they are trying to bully him. If he were a white man I don’t think you see so much pressure.

CFB is looking more like my daughters preschool with independent and adjacent play than an actual season right now.

Big Ten got caught up in politics and is starting to crack under the pressure. It sucks but it isn’t unexpected due to where these schools are located and the fact that these coaches keep going against their own conference decision and aren’t facing any consequences for doing so is a bad look.

Trump is just pushing the big ten around right now for his own political reasons and it allows him to undermine a black man in power, so it is a double win for him.

The ACC and Big 12 are already postponing games this weekend and the season is just starting. We will see if these conferences are even still playing games once October comes around.

or had much of an impact one way or the other.

the fact that coaches are irked about what's going on is the least of B1G's legal and PR problems right now. and many of these coaches have options outside of the conference so it's not like they're going to be held hostage for fear of repercussions.

looks to me like the other conferences are full go. when the B1G suddenly cancelled a month ago I would say the possibility of them getting bailed out by other conferences following suit was a much much stronger possibility than it is today.

VaTech/Virginia already postponed their game.

TCU and Baylor postponed their games today. Iowa State probably wishes it had postponed its game.

It is hard enough during a regular season to make up postponed games so it will be interesting to see how these conferences play a balanced season and make up multiple postponed games.

Playing football during Covid and then going into flu season is going to be very tough to manage. These college kids aren’t going to just sit in their dorms in between games and will be hanging out with non football players and going to parties so I expect CFB to mirror MLB but be even worse when it comes to Covid breakout clusters.

Hopefully no kid gets really sick or dies from playing this season.

On the day the Big 10 bows to pressure and reinstates its college football season, Ohio State researchers find that 15% of athletes who get Covid-19 have symptoms of myocarditis.

https://t.co/ZcybbpffXP
-----

the talking heads on espn were all over this myocarditis issue when it was just a rumor that the pac 12 canceled because of early warning signs about this.

now we have real data coming out and its pretty bad. but those same talking heads have pretty much ignored or just quickly gloss over the issue and now theyre all celebrating the return of big 10 football. desmond howard was basically just parroting big 10 pr talking points when he was mr athlete health a few weeks ago.

football culture is such that dads celebrate their 16-year-old sons playing through concussions and broken bones...a "fake flu" according to their supreme leader will not cause any concern

they KNOW their kids not playing will hurt their pro potential
but their kids MIGHT get sick

a lot of folks aren't worried about a "might"
and if they do, they think their kid is built different

this transcends potential NFL money, sports or the big 10.

you're a mom/dad that's been taking your kid to piano lessons for the past 15 years...and then that piano recital gets cancelled. they're gonna bug out just the same.

Can’t make varsity of JV doesn’t play, can’t get a scholarship offer if varsity high school doesn’t play, can’t make it to the NFL if CFB doesn’t play.

My sister in law was upset because her sons Little League was going to cancel and this hurt his chances to make the some sort of traveling all star team and that would hurt his chances to get into a good high school baseball program or IMG Sports Academy. He is 10 years old!! These sports parents are delusional and only get more delusional as these kids get older.

It’s about the emotional investment parents have in their child’s happiness, pursuits, successes, etc.

Which ya know, isn’t *always* such a bad thing.

I put more blame on the coaches for fueling the flames of outrage by parents and using they outrage to put pressure on Big 10 University Presidents and ADs.

Most parents want their kids to play because they don’t believe Covid is a real threat to their kids, they believe this will hurt their children’s chances to go pro and they just want to watch football.

I just hope all the athletes make it through the season without getting COVID.

I will probably watch Cal games when they get started back up.

Other than that, the start of the season just feels like a bunch of bad bowl game matchups that no one really wants to watch.

here’s the thing tho.. SEC says you don’t have to test a player who was positive for 90 days.

So I think these teams are actually encouraging infections just to get that 90 day window.

or they just lying.

Just heard UNC had to cancel another game because Charlotte’s OL has covid and is contact tracing. Charlotte just played App State last week.
