    It may surprise you, but the rest of the country is also handling this poorly.

    Right. So what’s cancelling football going to do?

    I certainly hear what you’re saying, but people are traveling all over anyway- football or no football.

    Sure but why add more just to play football? When you are dealing with exponential growth numbers like in a viral pandemic, preventing even one spreading event can have massive downstream effects.

    Here's some literature on why this matters and why America being full of statistically illiterate people is bad:

    I'm surprised UM is only favored by 24.5 tomorrow. Seems like a perfect Don Brown game and should be a slaughter.

    That actually is, you're saying everyone else is handling it poorly so why shouldn't we contribute to the spread also by playing football.

    Yeah but I honestly think losing to IU doesn’t compare to losing to Maryland. Also at the time their head coach was fucking Matt Canada.

    “Hey OSU dipshits remember that time Urban Meyer lost to Matt Canada?”

    I would have no rebuttal.

    He kind of reminds me of Barber. Speed is his primary limitation. But great vision, balance, hard to take down, always keeps his feet moving, always falls forward.

    I’m all for player safety but hate the flags on some of these blocks.

    edit: offensive player definitely could have handled that one differently though

    When I played WR those were the blocks we lived for because we finally got our chance to take a shot on somebody. Granted, it felt dirty inside because you knew there was a little cheap shot to it.

    On second thought, Gary Russell is probably a better comparison. Barber was quicker hitting a hole than Mo. Mo excels being patient and setting up blocks.

    Speaking of players who were overshadowed by two other guys at his position last season, Chris Autman-Bell is finally getting a chance to show what he can do.
