    Still absolutely worth the effort. Depends on how much the staff likes the “guardian” and how much Harmon likes the staff because he’s going to be highly involved in every facet.

    Wow. Not only are we not on the same page, we aren’t in the same library.

    NHL is doing just fine without a bubble. High School football with next to zero funding is doing great. MLB, after a few hiccups (which included positive tests, but no real damage) is surprisingly doing well.

    The B1G was fear mongered by potential legal ramifications to shut things down based on completely falsified complications of Covid. They still haven’t answered to what made them make the decision besides that terrible myocarditis study.

    You’ve got your mind made up and so do I, so I’m not sure why I even bother.

    I suppose we can make excuses ad nauseam. Or we could develop a plan with players that WANT to play and staff that WANT to work and get to business like most of the rest of the world.

    Has been from day 1, and that is across the board, not just sports.   Everyone seems to have an agenda and fit everything else to work within that agenda on whichever side they believe.  
    I've always been a skeptic.  Cheating in college sports.  Cheating by politicians.  etc, etc, etc.  but generally i'm not directly impacted and for the most part the better decisions have been made as the two parties sort of split the difference.  Things have a way of working out....
    However, this pandemic has opened my mind to a whole new level of skepticism.   Seeing the way BigTech and Big Pharma operates.  Seeing "trusted" government and world organizations lose my trust.  
    Anyway........... Here's to BIG football and basketball!

    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.

    Not sure we needed an Entomologist. 🤣

    If Archie, a great shooter can’t help with that, then they need >>>>>>>>>> more reps and better talent.

    He was a guard, but it appears he’s willing to work with bigs or guards.

    Archie has coached 2 of the worst shooting teams in Indiana history. That needs fixed yesterday.

    You picked up this torch early on in this whole pandemic and we’re at a point that I don’t believe you can see or understand it from any other angle.

    We should shut everything down forever. Even without COVID, people died in car crashes going to games, drinking themselves stupid while tailgating, or even losing all their money gambling. Horrible. How could we allow anyone to do anything that could potentially harm them.

    It’s called risk, when you wake up in the morning the rest of your day is comprised of risk analysis. You’ve made it clear that you don’t think anyone should take any risk related to COVID while there are plenty willing to take that risk. It’s been shown that hospitals have the capacity for a surge in cases.

    Why did vehicle accidents and deaths decrease over the years? Safety protocols were put in place..

    Now, we could have eliminated the automobile altogether and there would have been zero accidents and deaths. Seems kind of goofy right.

    We can either all stay inside and never leave our dwellings or we can follow safety protocols (social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands, etc.) and get back to a somewhat normal life.

    It was painful seeing other P5 conference teams playing yesterday while the Big Ten sat at home. Hell they even had fans in the stands.

    You’ve been on that hill for awhile. It doesn’t make other people stupid or wrong because they’ve realized what’s going on and have come off that hill.

    I hate telling people what to do or have them tell me what to do but that goofy **** you’ve done for months is old man.

    For the record: I don’t know how the season plays out for the conferences that have decided to play. There is zero guarantees that the winter or spring would be any better to play. I do see how universities and athletic programs could have implemented a “bubble” for athletic teams if they really wanted to. There is a greater risk to athletes being back around the regular student body than to keep them in a bubble and play.
