    That’s going to be back to back solid classes for them. Wouldn’t mind watching them become a west coast power again.

    This is a good kid. But this is the type of kid you will go through a guardian. International kid. Let’s put it this way. This is mostly how the Hanner Perea recruitment went and he was mainly a 4* across the board. It’s not abnormal to deal with a handler but you know what you are getting into.

    Wow glad we are in a good spot with some elite talent prior. I wonder what this will do to the 2022 class if anything? Probably going to be a lot of late commits.

    It’s crazy to me that any decision is based on a sample size that small both good and bad. In my naivety I am hopeful that the B1G isn’t that stupid to take a random sampling of 26 athletes. I guarantee if everyone had the luxury of the level of testing they had coming off of most any virus this would occur. It’s your body’s response to fighting off a virus. It isn’t a coronavirus thing. Why would we not compare all data across the board? Work together with the various conferences to gather more complete data? This a complete **** show.

    Highly doubtful based on everything else out there. But if he were? We are in store for a big year. I would be cool with that, because I think he really is expecting to be gone after this year regardless.

    President McRobbie plans to retire June 30, 2021

    Can’t say I disagree. I haven’t heard of too many people in and around Bloomington crying over this.

    It’s Covid man. The fact you are getting 90%+ of the people that agree there should be a season should say something. But yeah, I didn’t argue against anything you said so I got nothing.

    Difference of opinion man. That’s all. I think everyone knows where I sit. But in this environment? Yeah you will never find a consensus. Hell Kentucky can’t agree on if they are racist or not. I highly doubt we are all going to agree on the best outcome of a public pandemic when it relates to fall sports.

    There is an article on ESPN that will not be good on this board. But one aspect I thought interesting out of the interview with Rutger’s chancellor is where some of the thinking in all of this is being derived from. Here is a part of that article: ”Big Ten presidents and chancellors voted Aug. 11 to postpone the fall sports season, including football, because of concerns around the coronavirus pandemic. Holloway was among the 11 presidents and chancellors who elected to postpone, and told NJ Advance Media that his position won't change until the COVID-19 situation improves, including in Big Ten states such as Wisconsin, Iowa and Nebraska.” I won’t even pretend to know what those state’s numbers are, but that’s the first I heard of what is keeping this from happening.

    I wouldn’t doubt there is some level of that for sure. The biggest problem is it shouldn’t be a decision at his level imo. It should be at the top of the NCAA to set guidelines. If the guidelines cant be met because of state laws or any other reason then you cancel. The uniformity of party line politics in college sports isn’t my lane. They can save that **** for someone else. I understand where the B1G/PAC-12 or SEC/ACC/Big 12 are located. I know why we are where are. But this whole f’ing year doesn’t sit well with me. I am not too worried about people’s perception of our commissioner either. I would shocked if you polled 100 people at a football game who it is if even 10 would know. People’s perception of Kevin Warren doesn’t really change anything, now or in the future. I will always be of the mind if we are on campus they should play however.

    What’s funny is I was listening on the radio today with them talking about the ACC being mad at the SEC for the same reasons. They were talking up they knew the B1G and PAC-12 would do something drastic then after they made their decision the SEC went rogue from the ACC. That in turn makes it so some of the ACC biggest games won’t happen. Florida being in the SEC won’t play their normal Miami and FSU games. Finebaum is a SEC guy so I have no doubt the SEC feels that way. But it sounds like every conference commissioner is mad at the next one for the same reasons.
