    Are you trying to say that a plan to keep football going but results in people dying over a game is anything but bad? That’s pretty callous maybe evil. People dying is certainly a fact of life but being willing to knowingly trade human life for a football game wow. EDIT And for the record the deadliest time for vehicle deaths was prior to the interstate system.

    The NBA pulled it off. But then again they had a clear and conscise plan. They took great care to make the logistics work The other leagues haven’t. If the Big Ten is able to weather this out and get huge ratings in the spring without any cancellations it’s going to look like a genius move. It’s too soon to be criticizing either decision. But the fact teams are already having to cancel game’s doesn’t bode well for their plan.

    NHL has a bubble. But don’t let facts get in the way

    Not apparently a good one since there’s been yet another cancellation since I made that post. Doesn’t exactly seem to be working. To me it’s much smarter to wait till the fall. Be the only major football and be more prepared to not have to cancel games at the last second.

    My uncle always said it was a good thing we went to the moon or else that moment would have defined the generation. He always was disappointed we didn’t try and tackle something ambitious after 9/11 to try and retake control of what would define us.

    You act as if they didn’t try. The big ten basically just admitted that they couldn’t come up with plan. And you refuse to admit they even tried. Just because other leagues are playing doesn’t mean they are prepared and being responsible. One screw up can infect multiple people. It doesn’t need to be a super spreader to take out a team. And that doesn’t really cover: the logistics of keeping kids on lockdown between testing and game day. Testing and keeping all the support personnel on lockdown. They can just as easily infect the players post test How do you handle game cancellations? Was Ohio State going to be ok with Losing a title because they played one less game than another team? There’s tons of stuff to work out just because other organizations decided to proceed without a plan doesn’t mean that the Big Ten doesn’t want it enough or didn’t try. I don’t even follow college football all that much and I know there have been a couple major cancellations seems like their “plans” were up to the challenge of a pandemic This time last year nobody would have batted an eye if you accused the big ten of only caring about money. Now they are doing something without money as the motivator and people are up in arms about it. Their failure to prep a bubble for basketball is just a glaring display of incompetence. The NBA handed them a working blue print months ago.

    Think it goes beyond the players. Tons of support personnel behind the scenes. Plus kids partying because of the game. Not to mention what do you do when 10 players test positive the day before a game.

    Was in the 9th grade. We heard about the first plane but went about our day in gym class. Later we heard about the second and realized. We spent the rest of the school day Reporting to our respective classes then the teachers were working together to get us all in rooms with TVs. One teacher was a pissant that tried to teach that day and one kid in our class stormed out to find a TV. It gave us all the courage to follow. Guy I sat next to in biology was a senior who iirc had already enlisted.

    I’m absolutely shocked this needed explaining. Thanks for the assist

    Not surprised he seems to have some interest in academics.

    SMU and TCU just had to cancel a game at essentially the last minute. And it’s not going to be the last cancellation. Stop pretending like these conferences have somehow proved they made the correct decision

    In my cousins school district due to the bus driver shortage any kids within 2 miles of the school can’t ride the bus. She was less than pleased

    I think people have just lost the ability to let other people live their lives. And now when people do something that another group disagrees with they just want the government to get involved and step in to stop it. I have no problem with the government investigating crimes in any setting. But they shouldn’t be involved in pressuring operation decisions or calling for boycotts

    You make it sound really easy. And it’s not practical to still have a scout team with a reduction of 20 scholarship players. You can’t just field walkons to be the scout team.
