    So the lesson is...

    If you aren't sure why a poster on a message board posts certain things, don't ask him why. Skip right to the Ignore feature instead because his friends will get super sensitive and cry about it.

    My biggest concern is that the conference hasn’t seemed to really consider or do much to address the mental health of the student athletes during this time. Not having the sport that they have put so much work into and also having a very irregular academic experience this year is going to have a large impact on many of them. Then combine that with the unknown of what is going to happen with their sport. Many are far away from home for the first time and don’t have football (or their other sports) that they came here to play and aren’t able to have the normal social life and interaction with other students on campus. Could easily lead to mental health struggles for many.

    I really hope they come up with and communicate a plan sooner rather than later so the athletes know what to expect and work towards. Having something concrete to look forward to would likely provide some type of relief.

    Like being a freshman this year as a regular student would absolutely suck, can’t even imagine what it’s like for someone who chose the University to play a sport.

    This isn’t a take on play/don’t play at all, just thinking about how difficult this situation would be for a new college student. I wonder how many regular students opted to take a year off and see if things are closer to normal in 2021.

    A lot more than usual did. Won’t have final aggregated data for a few months from the Department of Education, but anecdotally there have been a much higher number of enrollment deferrals by admitted freshmen.

    - Harvard has publicly reported that ~20% of its freshman class deferred admission (usually less than 5%)
    - A school I work with in Philadelphia reported that 10% of its freshman class deferred (usually 1-2%)
    - Higher education consultant Simpson Scarborough did a national student survey in July that showed 40% of entering freshmen nationally had deferred or were considering deferring

    At the same time, Penn State is our real rival anyway. Always has been, always will be.

    People have been making "MG2 is a computer/robot" jokes at my expense because of the way I post on here since Obama's first term. And, if I'm not mistaken, you were one of the people who helped get that one off the ground (or at least were among the first to make the joke). I've never cried or complained about it on here. Not sure why you're so offended/sensitive about this.

    I take full credit for the robot description, by the way. Timeout. Need to add that to my list:

    1. “Clemsoning”
    2. Inventing Ro-Tel dip with meat in it
    3. Eating ass
    4. Comparing MG2 to a computer program

    Okay, anyhoo, in no way am I offended or hurt about any of this, but I can’t change the way you interpret that. My simple point is to utilize the ignore feature. It’s actually great, especially for threads.

    Completely anecdotal, but one of my daughter’s friends has two older siblings. A lot of the SEC schools recruit Cincinnati academically and offer decent money because adding proportions of students from different states is a metric to increase US News and other rankings.

    She has a sister at an SEC school paying less than in-state tuition to an Ohio state school because of it. Her sister is live.

    Her brother is an incoming freshman playing golf at a catholic college above the Mason-Dixon Line. His season is suspended and he is remote from home because campus is closed.

    His parents are paying substantially more for him to sit at home. He’s seriously thinking transfer because this is not the college experience he wants, irrespective of golf, and the SEC school made him the same offer as his sister (without golf).

    The southern schools are big here. Just in my neighborhood, I know parents who sent kids to Vandy, Tennessee, Alabama, and SC. No one wants Kentucky though.

    It makes sense, recruit Cincy and improve the rankings of both B1G academics and the SEC at the same time.

    It seems fairly simple to set safety/testing rules. Hire an independent testing company and mandate that results are shared, just like PEDs.

    Then let any school who wants to opt out to do it and play by those rules. If the rules require it to be shut down for positive tests, then do it.
