    Those videos are so awesome. 
    One of Allen’s best attributes is that he REALLY, REALLY wants to be here while you could just tell that guys like Wilson were basically at IU with the hopes it would lead to a “bigger” job. Great day for the program.

    That’s GREAT....Can’t wait until Saturday.
    I realize we are a football school but being picked 6th also gives our b-ball team something to aspire to.

    The one that surprises me (not saying they are wrong) is Illinois predicted for third place. After Underwoods first year I thought he would be on the hot seat by now but instead they finished 4th in the BT last year and are picked for 3rd this season.

    What do you think the media did this time?
    Sources ranging from HuffPost to Fox said is was over 500 cases in addition to the 310. “Fake News” seems to be a pavlovian response when people don’t like what they read/hear.

    Student attendance rate 96%
    Total quarantined 2%

    So a good start

    If the tests results all came back negative they would be good data and totally trustworthy.  They were positive so total fake news and simply party of an international conspiracy

    IMO, this was Scott Frost puffing his chest out as Nebraska football fans were not happy after with his underwhelming performance in his first two seasons there (9-15).  Expectations were high starting last year.......hard to fathom after the season they had, but they were voted in the media poll as the favorite to win the Big Ten West and started the year ranked number 24.  They were even 4-2 after six games and had a very manageable schedule left (Minnesota, Indiana, Purdue, Wisconsin, Maryland, and Iowa) but only won one game.

    And now for something a little off-topic and completely different:
    In what may likely have been the single most extraordinary night in Bloomington, Indiana rock/pop music history, on September 17, 1987 the Bluebird booked “The Ragin’ Texans.” About 100 people showed up.
    What that (initially) small crowd got instead, was a show by —in his prime—John Mellencamp. Sucking on a Marlboro, with Aronoff on drums, Germano on fiddle, Wanchic, Crane and Meyers on guitar/bass; inspired. It got so loud that you can see Mellencamp having to cover his ears between songs.
    But there’s way more. This was right before Farm Aid, and at the 16:00 mark John is joined onstage by one of the absolute few truly influential American musical legends. The King of the Lower East Side, LOU REED comes up for the rest of the set; “New Sensation”, the Velvet Underground milestone “Sweet Jane,” “Walk on the Wild Side”, and “I Love You Suzanne” is among what follows, with Mellencamp as a blissed out backup singer. 
    Enjoy:

    I agree.
    Japan, as an admittedly cherry picked example, has an older population than we do, has national health care for everyone but yet spends less than 1/2 per capita on healthcare than the US. A major difference....our obesity rate is 36% while theirs is 4% which means we have many more type 2 diabetes, knee replacements, high blood pressure, disabilities, etc etc and more people susceptible to severe reactions to viruses such as Covid.

    And to a larger point not trying to demean fat and obese people, but the fact that America has so many heavier people (whether playing football or not) and we consider them 'normal and in perfect health" is one of the reasons the death rate is high here compared to other countries where people are thinner overall.
    There are many other reasons as well for the high virus death rate in US (awful government response for one), but the fact that we consider heavier people to be in 'good health' shows how much we have accepted obesity as a normal part of society even though it is not a particularly good thing for the body.
