Is there a downvote button?
I get what you are trying to say, but if it comes back as a False Positive then there is no additional risk to the "kids".
Don’t you think if he tests negative 3 times, 24 hours a part, that’s a pretty clear indication he’s negative and not putting anyone at risk?
Those are the protocols put in place by all the team doctors.
Here’s the protocol they approved this week.
This is definitely where I saw this thread going on Friday.
One of my kids tested negative 3 times and had symptoms. Everyone in the house had Covid but he was negative. Sucks they can't just put him in a booth solo. Seems like that would be ideal and he could still coach from up there.
Friday score prediction before the inevitable liquored up Bama blow out prognostication:
Bama 34 UGA 28
If he has 3 negatives, would I lean to him not having it? Sure. Would I bet my life on it? No. If you lay out 100 Reese's Pieces and tell me 95 of them are fine but 5 might kill me, I'm not fucking with them. And I LOVE Reese's Pieces.
Again, it's a football game. Even if it's a 5% chance, it's too much risk to expose those kids. Just my opinion. Feel free to disagree.
You care more about who wins a football game than the health of the kids involved. I don't. That's where we're different.
Based off that statement, I assume you support all sports being canceled until ALL cases of Covid are gone?
Yes. I think it's pretty dumb that they are playing. Wait 6 months until the vaccine is out. Running unpaid kids out there to make a buck while putting them at risk is pretty gross, honestly. If paid professionals want to do it, that's their choice. Unpaid kids though? Na. It's a bad look they are playing college football right now.
Clearly doesn't bother you enough to not watch the games though. Not surprising that the "You can't have your cake and eat it too" fits here.
Bama 34 - Georgia 21
This is the best you could come up with?
It's good enough to point out your hypocrisy.
I will admit, the part pre-game where Sankey, Byrne and Saban hold the unplayed players at gunpoint with one hand and force them to play football, so they can collect their bags of money with the other, took some getting used to, but now it looks just part of the game.
Why can't college athletes makes the same decisions that pro ones do?
more than Anything it would convey the severity of the situation to Alabamians
It's really not. Do I wish they weren't playing? Yes. Will I watch if they do? Sure. That's not some wild and crazy take. You're struggling with admitting you care more about a game being played than the safety of the kids involved so you're lashing out at me. That's weird.
Not going to ruin the thread with this. I'm not judging anyone that's in favor of rushing him back out there, risks be damned. I get it. I don't agree with it, but I get it. I would just prefer people in leadership set an example for others and take an abundance of caution.
Ahh the old "Nobody is forcing them to play." comment. Kilmer didn't hold a gun to Wendell's head either so I'm sure you're ok with that too.
At some point the adults need to be the adults.
Bama by 7-10 points. Something like 34-24 or 31-24.
Don't think we have the offense to win.
I'm not struggling with shit, I'm glad they are playing. I'm just pointing out that you are supporting something you claim not to support.
And that's fine you're glad. I don't think you're a bad person for it. I think your priorities are a little fucked up, and I think you're realizing that and lashing out at me for pointing it out, but that doesn't make you a bad person.
Look, I'd prefer someone not try to jump the Grand Canyon on a motorcycle. I think it's stupid to risk your life doing that. But if they do it, I'll watch. Same premise here.
No Kilmer didn’t actually hold a gun to Wendell’s head because those aren’t real people, that’s a movie.
Back in the real world, a group of 14 doctors determined how they thought it was safe to play. They put together standards and protocols that have to be met. I’m going to trust the doctors. If something changes and it becomes unsafe then by all means stop immediately.
Further, kids are given the opportunity to opt out with no consequences. Several did, and that is great they had the opportunity to make that decision.
So yeah, no one is being forced to play. Kids were given information and allowed to make decisions.
"Why pay them when they'll play for free? You don't even have to hold a gun to their head."
Sorry, I'd prefer the adults be adults and do what's right for the kids. If there wasn't hundreds of millions of dollars in play, they wouldn't be playing.
You can't mention Varsity Blues without including this.
Were there not, in fact, a large number of players who specifically formed a group to fight for the right to play?
They love to play. Of course they did. Many have professional dreams too. Kids will play with injuries if you let them too. Again, at some point the adults need to be adults.
Hopefully the Bama fans posting itt today is an indication of how their team plays tomorrow.
What's it like over on the JY? Where are Shook and Euro?
Not a whole lot on the JY. Believe Rusty picked Bama, Rowe picked UGA. I don't think overall there is much confidence in the fanbase.
Idk where those two are. Prob somewhere living the life of the rich and famous.
I understand and respect your point of view because the GF has a similar one, and there’s nothing but the best intentions involved in it.
However, it’s not a cut and dry, fat cats taking the sacks of money situation, and I think you know that. There are thousands of people and businesses, especially in the south, that heavily rely on the income generated by big-time college football, many or most unrelated to the university itself. If no season is played, that’s irrecoverable damage for many of them.
Of course. It generates hundreds of millions of dollars that gets split many ways. How much of it goes the players actually playing the game?
This thread has contracted AIDS - can we kill it?
Why are so many people picking Bama? Their offense is great, but there defense has issues. UGA seems really good on both fronts.
Are we just expecting UGA to UGA?
UGA is like 42nd in offense (SP+), I wouldn't consider that really good.
Our qb and rbs are average. Would not say we are really good on offense.
Long thread but he has good info in there including stuff about Saban testing out which they didn't let Norvell do...
My guess is people are expecting the Alabama offensive edge to be greater than the Georgia defensive edge. Which, idk, seems debatable. Alabama's defense was not proven to be terrible until they were exposed last week by the Lane train. I admittedly haven't watched a lot of Georgia games this year, but they haven't exactly seen a dynamic offense close to what they will see tomorrow night.
I think the major reason people are picking Alabama is because they are the home team and have owned Georgia for a decade now. I think it'll be very close, and I'm hoping that Mac Jones can outduel Stetson in a shootout.
I think the idea is that as good as UGA’s defense is, they haven’t faced a QB, RB, WRs and Oline like us yet, which I believe is fair to say because our offensive players are established commodities. That’s gonna be an excellent matchup to watch.
On the flip side, our defense blows and UGA’s offense, while green, certainly doesn’t lack talent. That’s gonna be a matchup that has me shitting bricks for four quarters.
I'm not sure I'd bet on our offense figuring it out. I mean I guess they could I just don't think Bennett is very good and we have yet to see them play well consistently this season.
Pretty much the same defense that played LSU tough last year but couldn't hold on when our offense did jack shit.
If our offense can move the ball and score some points early, I think our d will keep the game close. How long that lasts will depend on our offense, which at least appears to be better than last year.
Just through to someone athletic over the middle. They will be open to run for miles pretty much every time.
