Yep, if you look up the thread some you will see that I agreed that it now looks like it may work out after someone mentioned the meeting this weekend.  Great news.

Looks like Oct 17th for the B1G.  Penn State team hotel just reset room rates for Oct 17th as "gamed day rates" 

Are they having fans in the stands?

Or just up charging the visiting team, tv crew and officials

No 11am Big 10 and PAC 12 after dark is going to suck. I hope both of these leagues find a way to start up in October. 

Big part of my gambling days.  No pac 12 bailout /fall asleep game

so the Big 10  gets to be the conf that turned the college world on its head in august by quitting, got a hanger-on in the Pac 12, and side hussle agreements with the WAC and BigSky Conferences which forced the ACC SEC and Big 12 to completely reschedule their games, cancelling all the ones that pay the bills for the smaller schools, then sit back and not play the first 7-8 weeks of the season and THEN they think all they have to do is start playing in late Oct and now qualify to be in the national champion discussion....  
fuck that. 
 

They look like bitches. I guess you could say Ohio St/Iowa and Nebraska was in the let’s play Camp since Aug. and only one of those 3 are NC contenders

Nine years is a long, LONG time to have a chapped ass about Nebraska leaving the conference.  Then again, there's no healing on the horizon for Arkansas bailing from the SWC, is there?  That was 28 years ago.

Non-sequitir strawman trial balloon on pig.  Please cite and quote our bitching about pig.  Another false narrative created in your own mind to deal with the cognitive dissonance of your 16 years spent on your knees in front of us.  We didn't start the current round of bitching until you declared our conference to be your soft landing from your current predicament, as if you retained the agency to simply up and move back in, when the idea of same is revolting to us, and the rest of the conference, with maybe the exception of 0u.

Just be happy that we only hate you.  We'll forget you again shortly, just like the rest of the country has during your descent to irrelevance, and revert to our standard programming of hate for 0u, and fear and loathing for aggy.

aggy infests every corner of the state we live in.   it is impossible to entirely remove them from our lives.  and every year, they steal 1/3rd of our money.  you'd be pissed too.

our trip to redstick needs to be fully-leaded in a non-asterisk year.  absolutely can not waste that return visit.  just push back all non-con contracts all schools to 2021.  it sucks for sam and the rest of the seniors but that's the breaks.

Wish the SEC would pressure Pig to move our game next year to 2050 or when the fuck ever and let us play in BR next year....

You didn't answer my question. You gave me your theory. It could be correct. That isn't the point. How do you know for a fact the Big 10 is making its decision based on a reason other than player safety?


You’re being obtuse. Of course the Big 10 is not going to release an audited list of their actual motives or agenda. One has to pay attention and be able to form logical conclusions from the information we have. They canceled the season because of the “newly discovered” heart inflammation issue that has been known about by everyone in the medical community for years. Now they claim it’s safe again because they have access to rapid testing. Really? What about that heart inflammation issue? That just suddenly went away right as other conferences found a way to play football? 

Their decision was so clearly not based on player safety initially it was laughable. Now they are wavering when literally nothing has changed just demonstrates their ridiculous posturing. Seeing which schools are in favor of playing vs not is just another data point about how this is falling along political, ideological lines. If they play again in October, it is not the result of a resolution of the medical concerns they outlined initially. It’s because of the huge financial consequence and political backlash within their own conference.

I thought it was shown that study might not be entirely accurate? And I thought the rapid testing was a relatively new development? And now we have had several weeks they can observe what is going on across the country with people playing.

But it is laughable that it was based on concerns about Covid but instead it is logical to realize it is actually about...um...ideology? That whole 'don't play football' ideology. I am not a political scientist but I am not familiar with that one. Some kind of vague posturing that is about...something or other. And if we do not accept this vague general political claim we are being obtuse?

And of course there are huge political and financial backlash to not playing college football and I am supposed to believe they were not aware of what those might be when they initially decided to cancel? I think they were aware they were all going to take a big financial hit and it was going to be unpopular (not to mentiond damaging to recruiting and all that). They might have been overly careful and perhaps went too far but I fail to see the logical conclusion that therefore player safety was not a concern but instead they all decided to make huge sacrifices because of some vague unspecific political agenda to do something or other.

If the Big 10/Pac 12 wish to try to cleanse their vaginas and start to play in October, ... sure... why not ... ONLY

We welcome them to bowl games where applicable but for this year, they are not playoff eligible. Less wear and tear on their players with the delayed start, upsetting college football plans and revenue flow on a nationwide basis. It was a poor decision when made which looks even more ridiculous now.

And for poor decisions there must be consequences.

Sounds good. They will have plenty of games played by then to see how dangerous it is.

I hope the PAC 12 decides to follow suit at some point.

Meh. Let's first see how many cancellations everybody else has and let the season play out.

They laid a turd in the punchbowl and now complain it tastes like shit. I hope they fall asleep on their own burning couches.

Mizzou left, didn’t talk too much shit, won their division and then fell apart. Nebraska is still pining for the past, talked shit after getting their asses kicked here, left, talked more shit, got their asses kicked there, still talking shit. You are just like Arkansas, celebrating past success, shit talking and losing at the things you love the most. At least Arkansas has baseball. You have nothing.

How did your field survive the Hurricane that hit Iowa about three weeks ago?

We’re 60ish miles north of the storm path, so we ended up unaffected

Drove through some areas with down corn the other day. Just missed the BIL's fields by a couple of miles.

Are y'all starting to harvest soon? BIL is starting this week.

Mizzou didn't talk shit?  They started the whole fucking thing by talking shit about being considered for the B1G in March 2010 when they should have kept their mouth shut.   You don't know Mizery well at all.

I don’t know how they did it but the Big 10 certainly mustered their media lap dogs to carry water for them during all of this. Pat Forde, this guy and Stewart Mandel are like their own version of Fox News for the conference.

Well, I married into a Mizzou family and my wife’s grandfather taught there. So I suppose you are right. They talked a little, but nothing compared to the bitchass behavior of Nebraska or aggy. Colorado didn’t say shit either. I know you are hypersensitive since Mizzou passed NU in relevance and on field success in the B12 and beyond.

I dunno that I fully agree. Yeah the LSU cancellation sucked. Ran into a Tiger in Tampa, FL and he commented as I had a Longhorn shirt that he was super bummed Texas and Longhorn fans weren't coming to Baton Roo. 

That said, I thought the Texas game on Sat was pretty mother fucking watchable. Sure it was scrubs late..  which was fucking glorious.

As others have already said, sure they talked shit, nobody cared and it couldn't be heard over the bitchassedness of Corn and aggy.

That said, the B1G flat out responding to Missery, "Yeah, um, no. Please go away now.", was delicious.
