Re: Big 10 Cancels Non Conference Games

When I consider all the issues the NCAA and College Football are currently facing, in addition to the COVID Crisis, maybe a ‘time out’ would be the best thing that could happen in order have time to properly and correctly reconsider, reset, reorganize, restructure, or otherwise decide how to best ad...

Re: Big 10 Cancels Non Conference Games

And therein lies the problem we’re currently faced with in today’s world.... the redefinition of words such as racism and protest. Where disagreement equals racism and criminal actions equals protest. :? Thank God a Presidential Election Year only comes around once every four years. It’s a shame the...

Re: Big 10 Cancels Non Conference Games

Update: A FOIA Request has been issued to WVU concerning the Vic Koenning Third Party Investigation findings. WVU has has issued a statement they will respond to the request around September 15th. Interesting that WVU didn’t say they would make the report available, but they would respond to the req...

Re: Big 10 Cancels Non Conference Games

What’s most troubling for me is West Virginia’s decision to engage a third party to conduct the investigation and then decide not to make public the findings. Especially in light of the fact that the allegations made by the player against Coach Koenning were made public in a tweet by the player and ...

Re: Big 10 Cancels Non Conference Games

It wouldn't surprise me if they don't play this fall. Actually, nothing surprises me anymore. After what has happened at West Virginia that resulted in the ‘firing’, or whatever word they want to use, of Vic Koenning nothing surprises me anymore either. A player makes a tweet, a third party investi...

Re: Big 10 Cancels Non Conference Games

There is little doubt in my mind about what the priorities are or what’s driving the decision to not play the non-conference games. For sure COVID is a factor being considered, but IMHO, as a factor that has the real potential to not only shutdown a team but also to shutdown the CFP. My thinking is ...

Re: Big 10 Cancels Non Conference Game

That makes sense........ as I understand it, there’s not a national standard for testing or prevention protocol for football programs, those are local decisions. :?

Re: Will the NCAA Survive........

Here’s the latest article I’ve come across about Congress addressing the NIL issue. What I found most interesting, although not surprising in the least, is the question raised about whether or not the NCAA is the appropriate body to enforce any such Congressional action. And to a lessor degree, the ...

Re: Well....... it’s my way or the highway.

My two cents worth is........ it would take a bunch of Ignorant SOBs to market “unity” while selling “division” and one hell of a bunch of Stupid SOBs to buy it in order to turn a profit.

My concern is, there are plenty of both....... :| :| :|

Re: Well....... it’s my way or the highway.

.........appears this kind of stuff is popping up in many places. At West Virginia there’s a coach on ‘Administrative Leave’ pending an ‘Independent Third Party Investigation’ into allegations from a player that the coach was ‘insensitive to his feelings’. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Re: 2020 Week: Zero / One Picks Up

Oh Goodie!!!!!! Thanks Cane....... let’s see, now we have plenty of time to factor in all the factors that may or could impact a game. Things like game location, game time, temperature, wind, precipitation, player availability, coaching changes, system changes, scheme changes, matchups, COVID, etc, ...
