Which poster is this?

 

we'd have to know what Spurlin wants in order to make that determination-- is he mad because Del Conte's not like "man FUCK the coronavirus hoax, we're tailgating and I'll pour shots!", or is he mad because Del Conte hasn't publicly taken the Oath of Patriotism and vowed to shutter the athletic department until every American's been vaccinated twice?

and I never get off the Internet, so are there any other positions not represented above?

You are correct. And Brat nailed it with something about a douche-bag.

Newsflash:  Dallas has more cases than Hallsville, Texas.  Total cases more maybe because more opportunities. What about cases per capita?

Or, put another way:

Reporting that 0.00829% of all UT students, faculty and staff have reported that they are COVID-19 positive, UT-Austin reported more cases than any other institution in the nation that reported cases.

Seems like 9 conference games plus one non-conference game makes most sense.  Have an extra off week and spread games out to allow more schedule flexibility...

TexAgs is probably losing their shit that we're #1 at something again.

Expect Collie Station to host a shit-ton of "touch a covid patient" contests.

So who do you prefer playing to work the kinks out early in September..South FL or UTEP?

Part of issue here as well is how far back are they going for this data? UT got hit with a big Spring Break jump when I believe it was 50 idiots chartered a plane and all caught CV19 together. I would imagine (at least it was never reported that any of them died etc) that all have recovered. So there are some big chunky outliers to this that could be skewing these numbers.

Whoever has better Covid-19 protection resources.  Game needs to be at least 2 weeks before the first B12 conference game though...

If they keep the bulls on labor day weekend, it would give them 3 full weeks before playing at KSU.  Personally I'd rather them move up the season a week and play South Florida.  Then play second week of September vs UTEP. Feel like two games under the belt should have the team in sink before boarding a plane to Manhattan.

I'm genuinely surprised it's not UCF.  It's a bigger school in a bigger hotspot (%-wise) with lots and lots and lots of stupid "Covid is a Hoax" types.

I’d rather play UTEP. Keep it an instate opponent. Support a member of the UT System. Glorified scrimmage.

Not trying to derail but UT has some excellent COVID resources. If you get tested + at Dell Med, they call and test everyone you’ve been with in the last week. On top of that, roughly half of students are still living/partying in west campus, so the high case number isn’t a shocker.

-In semi-related news, the Aggies and Longhorns are not meeting on the field, no matter how hard Chris Del Conte and Tom Herman whine about to the media. However, the rivalry is alive and well behind the scenes, as wanna-be mountain man 'CDC' is going to have to walk back his previous claims of 50% capacity at DKR. You see, it's sounding more and more like 25% is going to be the reality in Travis County. Meanwhile, A&M has maintained they'd shoot for 50% at Kyle Field all along, with fans being able to decide whether attending games was right for them or not. I'm expecting the Ags to stick with that, which will place a great deal of pressure on the Texas decision-makers, who would catch an incredible amount of heat from their season ticket holders. Can you imagine if A&M is playing at 50% capacity and Texas half that???

So try and predict Texas' current play. Yep, you guessed it. They're almost certainly going to attempt to go the political route, likely asking our Longhorn Governor to exert a little behind-the-scenes leverage on TAMU brass to go along with the other in-state programs at 25%. I don't think it's going to work, but we'll see. Stay tuned.

-Speaking of the Horns, have you guys noticed the pitiful army of talking heads spouting off their typical envious nonsense over the past few days? These blowhards are so excited about being able to lose the LSU game in Baton Rouge and play what will probably be an all-Big 12 slate plus maybe a conf-vs-conf one-off with someone like the Mountain West yet they're going all-in the other way and are now talking smack about the SEC doing exactly what the B1G and Pac-12 are planning to do. The collection of Burnt Orange mouthpieces are actually bragging about playing an easier schedule while other programs' slates are actually getting infinitely tougher and don't even realize how apropos and on-brand this all is.

Better hope you avoid Boise State, Hermie.

Sooooo, he thinks we will lobby the Governor to limit A&M's attendance with a net result of less Aggys being exposed to a known deadly pathogen. That's not how I'd play it.

I said it in the recruiting thread, but based on all his current and previous output, Looch is 1000% a dude that trusts Clay Travis more than Anthony Fauci when it comes to epidemiology and uses "coronabro" in conversation.

He likely does use c-bro and that should be added to his bag of dicks. No one should trust Travis or Fauci.

This is why we can't lead even though we are The University.  It doesn't matter what we do.  We get attacked with fake news regardless.

Fauci has been the director of NIAID for like 45 years. He's literally the world preeminent epidemiologist. Not going to go further than that in the recruiting thread, but a dumb both sides post deserves a quick refutation.

Good, you should listen to him.

A) Bowlsby is a fucking dipshit. At least he doesn’t have his braintrust Uncle Feely Boren any more to make it worse.

B) Billy is not an insufferable little bitch. He is a tremendous fatass.

12 games? But against who? Even Lake Travis High School might not be available.

Odd that the school presidents have to decide this.

So Looch thinks Texas is going to fight hard for A&M students and alumnis safety against A&M's own decisions? Um we're not your big brother anymore dude, its your current bro Bama who is making sure you have less home games to help protect yourselves.

Wait...some of y'all really thought Looch/aggy wouldn't blame covid-19, its impact on college athletics, and aggy having a shitty football season on "t.u." (heee-heee)?

Really?  Doesn’t the buck pretty much stop on the university president’s desk?  Whom would you suggests gets to decide?  AD?  Head coach?  Legal affairs staff?  Get your popcorn futures now guys, this season could turn into a truly epic shitshow. I just hope it’s all televised.
