College Football in 2020 in danger?

The new testing technology along with several games being played safely does change things I think. I keep mentioning that but people on this thread keep insisting nothing has changed since August.


That testing technology is not new since their decision. The newly approved testing kits were delivered just a few weeks after they cancelled their season. This technology was on the verge of approval and that information was available when they held their last vote. But I agree that seeing someone else execute this logistically with no players getting sick was new information.

Of course it changes things but no room to claim safety, that's never been a real. If it were they would not play 8 games in 8 weeks or suggest a spring season.

On the P12 front, the logistics are really going to wreak havoc on trying to get a season in.  There is no way, even if the conference green lit it tomorrow, that the LA and Oregon schools could even start practicing in any meaningful way for at least a couple of weeks with all of the smoke.  The entire city of LA is covered in an overcast gray, and none of that is marine layer.  It is all smoke.  So say early/mid October fall camp, that means the season would start mid November at best.  At that point we are so far behind everyone else that we would just be playing in our own sandbox.  Not sure that would be compelling for anyone.

Yup.  Outside of the testing agreement, I've seen zero interest from anywhere on the PAC12 side to have me believe a fall season is in the works.  Your points take the odds even further out.

 Go into a supermarket, amusement park or any other mass gathering in this country and look at the percentage of people who overweight or smoking.  Then go to one in some of the more fit European countries.  It's quite an eye-opener. 

 

I don't think you want to compare smoking here versus Europe to make your point.

Tweets from 4 days ago that didn't age well

Only to write these words today.  He was so sure, but now so sad.

Bowing to pressure from players, coaches and politicians, the Big Ten’s presidents decided Wednesday morning to move forward with an eight-game football season beginning on the weekend of Oct. 24.

Yah, I now regret lumping Wolken in with Mandel, Thamel, etc. when talking about the good journalists last week. I do think he's done some solid columns, for example one about the importance of daily testing which ultimately proved to be right on the money. But since then he's gone way out on this limb about the medical expertise of the B1G/Pac, apparently not noticing that they were aggressively trying to find medical solutions to play ASAP. Wish he would go back to just antagonizing red meat SEC types, he's good at that

Yeah, considering Wolken even a journalist is a stretch. 

I think Leach said it best (old tweet)::

For any true football fan, Texas State - UTSA was an extremely entertaining game.  

It was on ESPN2 up against GT-FSU.  But a true football fan would appreciate a game that is played under 5 hours w/o lightening delays.

 

say anyone know how to get a game broadcast on the USA network without buying an annual subscription to Silk Stalkings?

Larry Scott:

“At this time, our universities in California and Oregon do not have approval from state or local public health officials to start contact practice,” the statement from Scott read. “We are hopeful that our new daily testing capability can help satisfy public health official approvals in California and Oregon to begin contact practice and competition. We are equally closely monitoring the devastating fires and air quality in our region at this time. We are eager for our student-athletes to have the opportunity to play this season, as soon as it can be done safely and in accordance with public health authority approvals.”

Yes herpa lerpa derpa...that’s gonna hurt their online ego. Good thing they can shut off comments for their tweets

For the life of me, I can't figure out why anyone listens to them or cares what they say. If it wasn't for jerkoffs on this thread I'd have no idea who they are or what they are saying

I know that Leach tweet is old, but it is gold.  Leach taught Gardner Minshew well.   I probably would have put Adam James in a closet too.  Fuck Dan Wolken.

As for being old as someone mentioned, being old puts you more at risk because you've been doing these for a longer period of time.  Plenty of healthy old people out there.  

My dad never smoked, drank very, very little, was a D1 letterman athlete in SWC days (before “D1” was a thing), ran 5-10 miles a day, 5-6 days a week, for most of his adult life, worked hard on our little family farm and in community development for a very, very long time, ate EXTREMELY healthily all his life, and never had the beetus or anything remotely resembling lifestyle-induced bad health. 
He’s now 87 and has Alzheimer’s. He’s at extreme risk if he catches C19.  I’d rather him stay alive for a while for a variety of reasons.  But I guess he’s expendable because he chose to live so healthy for so long?

Please explain your logic. Because it sounds a lot like eugenics. 
Thanks.

Chill out COVIDenier. Since you’re tossing out lame nicknames to people you don’t like whose opinions don’t match yours.  
 

You’ve been the biggest fucking whiny bitch on this board since COVID started so at least the global pandemic revealed your gigantic vagina and what a bitchy snowflake you are.

They’ll pick up when the SEC starts. We talk a big game in the off season during normal life, but nobody is excited to watch Clemson throttle WF. When your excitement for the day was the sun belt punking the big 12, then yea...I can see why people were doing fall or winter prep work last weekend. I cleaned my garage

It's kind of like watching a train going down the track....but, nobody likes a train wreck.

The NFL teams were granted a waiver based on the intense testing protocols.  Colleges couldn’t commit to that until this new rapid test.

With Alzheimer’s?  I hate to say this, but trust me, you don’t want him to be around for a long time with Alzheimer’s.  You think you do, but until you’ve been through it with someone as close as Dad, you don’t want to.

Amazing how all the theater evaporates when people finally get tired of playing along. Same thing is happening with the masks. More and more people are saying, "naaaahhh".

Worshipping the people who fuck pornstars seems to be an SEC hobby and way of life as of the last few years.  I didn't think they'd make commemorative cups out the lack of religious forethought, but here we are as a football nation.

Well I find the mask thing depressing if true. It is for other people. And it had a very good track record of stopping this thing in East Asia. I don't see the evidence that supports masks being theatre. I guess from now on you want people operating on you without masks since you don't think they actually stop infections?

But I don't see the theatre claim. We have evidence we can do this thing and a plan moving forward. Not playing along = influenced by evidence?

Well shoot, I have no idea how to get to Waco from Houston.  Under normal circumstances, why would anyone ever WANT to?

Only reason I know how to get to Waco from Austin, is because I know how to get to Dallas from Austin.

The Pac 12 was already falling behind, but they have done irreparable harm to their programs.  Right or wrong, they are the conference that doesn't take football seriously.  Their recruiting is going to be dogshit for the next few years.  Top high school players want to go where football is taken seriously.

the real problem is that he didn't Google "how to get back to Houston from Waco" so they're going to be stuck there indefinitely
