As long as the athletes on scholarship are able to complete their educations, are games that important?  It’s certainly not an essential activity and all the focus should be on them achieving academic excellence.  It’s not-athlete student, it’s student athlete

Lets throw some stats out there that will make you wonder why football should be played:

1)  There are 43 million people in our country between 17-24
2)  out of that group,  202 have died, most with preexisting conditions, less than .00004 of the that population
3)  Driving back to school has a higher danger than covid
4)  Only let kids into the games that are less than 25 years old, and let the games begin.

Just make sense to let them play.  If a player gets Covid, the player is out for 2 weeks minimum and has to pass 2 tests before coming back, simple

How many times does it need to be explained? It’s not just about them. It’s also about who they pass it to.

Not to mention that dying isn’t the only thing that can go wrong here.

Seriously have people not been paying attention the last few months?

Source: B1G officials just met. Ohio State, Nebraska, Iowa and Michigan are set on playing this fall. Illinois and Northwestern are only schools that are not thinking about playing.  If Big Ten doesn’t have football, teams will be allowed to join other leagues.
The White House was also involved in the meeting today, pressing the Big Ten to play.

Main reason for the call btw was that Ohio State and Nebraska will play elsewhere if the B1G does not have a season

You are correct. But the people who don't want to hear it will continue to ignore the reality, not matter how many times it is explained.

Ignorance is bliss.

Oklahoma says a lot, it may say it all.
Football players are just cannon fodder.
Hire them, run them, watch them get sick or hurt, and fire them.
One year scollarships, its good for business.
As long as they are willing and there is money to be made, why not?
It is the American way.
Not unlike Vietnam.

Did you just equate a Vietnam veteran’s war experience to the experience of a Sooner fball player?

Rutgers, I could understand. They're disrespected on college campuses across the nation, have little support back home, have virtually no chance of success and have been sold down the river by imbecilic leadership.

Notre Dame back to school for a week and they’ve seen a spike on campus UNC has four clusters in different residence halls after a week back.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

This board is really hard to read when it comes to COVID.

But, I have no one else to blame but myself for reading this crap.  I respect people's opinions about college sports here but nothing else.  And no one should respect my opinions about COVID either.

Well done, Pakuni - hilarious. Many years ago (20, maybe 30) a new president was installed at Oklahoma. In his initial press conference, he said his first priority was building a university that the football team could be proud of. More truth is said in jest...

ND's spike was linked to a 100 student off campus party, just glad there wasn't a pandemic when PKT had their 100 kegger!

The definition of off campus is alarming in this situation. These kids are on campus for classes, labs, studying and recreation. They merely don’t live in ND housing.

It’s an effing problem.

It’s a big problem because there isn’t oversight like there theoretically would be in residence halls.

What happened during the big conference call? I couldn’t find anything on ESPN, The Athletic or any other site.

Did you just equate a Vietnam veteran’s war experience to the experience of a Sooner fball player?

Wow.

Yes, bring them in, use them up, throw them out.
Is that so hard to understand or equate?

Vietnam was much worse, you ended up DOA.  Oh, only 58,000, plus WIA, MIA, and 60,000 suicides.
Sooner football does not put the players first.  Big time college football does not put the student athlete first.

As I have said here a few times, much of my wardrobe is made in vietnam.
We lost and where are the falling the Dominos?  Vietnam is doing just fine withous us.

When I see leadership, administrations, (schools, universities, governments, politicians) putting themselves ahead of the students, players, citizens, or soldiers I think of Vietnam.  Sorry, just how my mind works and it's getting worse. 

We are talking body count one way or the other.  170,000 dead from COVID.  O.K. discount for the very old, adjust for the overweight smokers, don't count those who have a death certificate saying something else like heart attack and its still a big deal.  Not worth college sports.  My Vietnam number was over 10 years, COVID is just 6 months and counting.  Maybe you are right it doesn't equate after all.  It's much worse.  Might be even worse than the flu.

Thank you. We are all much dumber after reading this.

Talk to a person from Vietnam before posting this crap. I have talked to a recent iimmigrant, less than 1 year, and she paints a very, very different picture.
