    Pre Mullen, that's pretty much a lost decade for me outside of the 2012 season, the 2014 UGA game, the 2016 LSU game, and the hilarious ways we found to beat Tennessee almost every year.

    Not sure what type of coverage youre asking but If you pay enough, they will cover anything. Otherwise, endorsements and exclusions are there for a reason.

    I hadn't seen that statement from LSU. Have any other schools said the June 1 date? I'd assume Riley has heard some others for him to use the date.

    Nobody from the OSU AD or football has said a peep on the date, but they seem to leak it out that July 15 would be a hopeful date if they are gonna go.

    if your parents can afford it, going to see a lot of people take gap years and deferred enrollment. Which will in turn get a lot of otherwise-wouldbe-waitlisters into top tier options; assuming theyre willing to pay up for prestige university but substandard instruction (at least in year 1).

    Who it will really screw over are all the downstream schools.

    I think Frost said something like “hopefully we’ll be back June 1” the other day in a radio interview. June 1 is a date I have seen the last week or two (throughout CFB) when talking about returning for summer workouts

    nah, we’ll somehow be good and win a natty with a 7-0 record and wins over Great Lakes Sheet Metal and Pawnee Pipefitters Union and get an asterisk placed behind our natty. 1918 style.

    I really wish everyone would just postpone sports until 2021. It’s going to be a mess. Play football in the spring and then again in the fall so you won’t lose money.

    I agree with this. Main caveat would be recovery time for returning players with shortened time in between seasons. That and big-name players skipping spring to prep for the NFL, but I have much less of a problem with players doing that and maximizing their market value.

    Our high school association has begun discussing plans for next year. So far the only idea I’ve heard is swapping fall and spring sports. Because the spring sports are easier to distance. Then of course my question is ell if nothing really changes why is the spring gojng to be any different.

    As representative of the Michigan caucus I believe it’s only fair that we table this season until after the 2021 NFL draft so that we can properly protect these student athletes. After all, these are all someone’s child.

    you would expect some backlash from college of charleston admin but their president is an avid civil war reenactor so he probably signed off on this tweet

    maybe try and formulate your own conclusions from time to time. it’s not very hard. a lot of your cherished scientific opinions have been wrong, and always will be :twocents:

    CofC’s President has been Andrew Hsu (pronounced like shoe) for a year now. He is a very accomplished administrator who left China with $20 in his pocket after the cultural revolution in China to come to America for grad school at GA Tech, as he knew of an aunt in Atlanta. He taught himself English as a teenager by reading English literature and went on to earn his PhD and become an aerospace engineer working on Rolls Royce engines. He is a very intelligent and deliberate man who resembles nothing of Glenn McConnell, who was an alum and powerful state politician. As someone who has had the chance to get to know President Hsu, I can assure you this tweet was not sanctioned and does not represent what the administration at CofC believes regarding the response to COVID-19.
