    Won't happen. The current federal leadership is too divisive, and people are too committed to their political beliefs to change the way they think.

    Disney World is licking its chops. If it's open, you know people will still go there and cough all over each other.

    Kind of wish some of the businesses in my community would loosen their grip a little. Went to the library today, which is under construction with everything moved around in addition to the mess that Covid has turned it into. Didn't know where to return my books, so I handed them to a librarian, who told me "next time, use the drop box." I guess touching a book that someone else touched is dangerous now. The Animal Shelter has been closed since March. It announced today it will remain closed indefinitely after planning to re-open next week. I get why we need to be cautious, I guess I just don't know why everything has to be upended in an area that's actually doing pretty well right now.

    I think a C is fair. We had a nice year, but blew our last game in embarrassing fashion. The program hasn't had a good offseason, either. Recruiting really needs to pick it up. Maryland and Rutgers signed better classes than us. We're in big trouble if that continues. And it's absolutely ridiculous that we haven't beaten OSU or Michigan since the 80's.

    I know, just felt like pointing out to some that this has turned out to be a lot more serious than initially thought.

    Florida's numbers are insane right now. They've been pumping out 8-9 thousand new cases a day for several days.

    I remember one that had us at 100,000 by August 30th.

    I guess the recruiting services will just have to adjust their rankings based on which program a player chooses. Oh wait, they already do that.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Treading carefully here to avoid getting political, but something I've noticed throughout the pandemic has been the divide between urban and rural Americans. I think people in larger cities and higher populated areas have taken it more seriously. It makes sense, because people who live closer together are more likely to spread diseases by sharing space and interacting with others, whereas rural Americans are more spread out. Take Fort Wayne, for example. I went shopping at several stores there last week. Probably 90% of the people I saw, children included, were wearing masks. The next day, I went to Walmart in my hometown. It was very busy, and I saw two masks the whole time I was there. Fort Wayne residents are obviously more cautious than the people in my community, where masks are regularly met with derision, eye rolls, and sneers about being a sheep. Like the guy at Walmart who walked under caution tape and simply said "arrest me" to the store employee who called him out on it. This is largely a "rural vs. urban" mentality. Rural Americans are inherently stubborn and HATE being told what to do, even if it's for their own good. Their motto seems to be "if it doesn't kill you, it's safe." I'm sure you know people like this. They're the ones who brag about how drinking from a hose, riding without seatbelts and eating raw meat had literally no impact on their well-being, among other things. They tend to have a very cavalier attitude toward humanity and view life as a privilege, an opportunity that could be taken from them at any time. They don't care if they get sick, because they think they'll just recover, and if they don't, well then that's life. Of the people I know who fit this particular demographic, they feel that at best, this is all a big overreaction to something that's on par with the flu, and at worst, it's a conspiracy to prompt a change in leadership at the top. I don't know if there are people like this in other countries. Having in-laws who were not born in the U.S., I do feel that other nations probably aren't dealing with as much backlash as we've seen here.

    39,103 new cases today, the most since the pandemic began. Man, imagine if all this excessive testing had been available back in April...
  12. Hopefully none of our athletes ever pick up a penny that's tails-side up or forget to flush a toilet. Good lord.

    Other countries in a pandemic: "We should wear masks to keep each other safe. If we work together and follow the guidelines, we can overcome this." USA in a pandemic:

    So China claims to have only 349 active cases, while we have 1.2 million. I wonder what the Chinese fear more: the virus, or their own government.

    College Football Thread

    One of many examples of what a sham college football recruiting is. Joey Labbas, a quarterback from northeastern Ohio, committed to Ball State on May 11th. At the time, he was a 3 star QB ranked 39th in his class. Iowa, who has used Ball State as its own personal scouting department over the years, immediately swooped in and offered, and on June 3rd, Labas became a Hawkeye. The rankings have since updated, and Labas is now a 4 star ranked 11th in the class. He sure got a lot better in the last month. Keep in mind, nobody is actually evaluating these guys because of Covid-19 restrictions.
