    Big Ten Cancels 2020 Football Season

    I imagine most fall athletes had been trying to follow protocols in order to save their seasons. So now it is party hard tonight at the cool kid’s apartment.

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    I think the same suits (Presidents not ADs or coaches) will announce online classes only in several of the BIG states.

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    Oklahoma football had all those positive cases and now it is quiet. It will be interesting to see how things play out in Florida and Texas. Maybe it’s quiet there by September. Nobody really knows how this all plays out but young people everywhere are past quarantined life.

    Elephant in the Room: How many games will Illini football play this fall?

    ......and it never will be with asymptomatic carriers.

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    Just heard that an area high school football team was exposed. Longest line of cars I’ve seen yet at our hospital’s drive through testing. We all came out of our houses in June. A) It’s about to get real or B) allergies have sent a bunch of people to get tested. I think both are in play.

    Viral load affects severity and how fast it spreads for sure. I think the bet referred to positive cases. I think most of us will have been exposed to the virus by the time a vaccine finally gets here. The age group that low risk students fall under are relatively safe. Why not give the...

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    Just take a look at your kid's Instagram and see where all their friends have been. You'll see "proms", graduation parties, family vacations, etc. I'd like to act shocked but I'm not. Let me say that my kid didn't get a family vacation, a prom or a graduation party but he's hung out with...

    Be careful how much you bet. I think the point is that college kids won't really isolate at home or on campus.

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    I agree that we won’t have fall sports. I think schools will decide it is not safe to return kids to school. I also think that most of those kids are pretty much socializing in an “unsafe” manner anyway. My wife is an essential government worker and was required to go to work throughout this...

    Pete Rose, Yea or Nay?

    AJ Hinch will be managing next year. His cheating might well have changed a World Series and scores of many games. I wasn’t for lifting Pete’s ban until now. Now I say either ban Hinch, Luhnow and Cora for life or give Pete his place as hits leader in the HOF.

    Cardinals Hot Stove

    MLB Network keeps saying we were bottom 1/3 in most offensive categories. I’m not going to argue it because I don’t have the stats to back it up. On Wong, it was probably the FOX Midwest team bragging about his year because he was a bright spot. I agree that the FO must see something in their...

    So Cards ranked bottom 1/3 in offense. Where will we find upgrades? Carp and Goldy probably do a little better. Wong could regress back to his lifetime averages (hope not). Thr Cards are looking for youth in the outfield to boost offense. Mostly the Cards are looking to Albert to get more...

    At Short stop too. DeJong faded down the stretch.

    Cardinals Hot Stove

    The market on Ozuna wasn’t very strong and basically equal to the QO from the Cardinals. I’m assuming all clubs valued him about the same. Mo was hoping to have gotten an All Star in Ozuna and it just didn’t work out. Im still pretty disgusted that Brewers got Yelich after Cardinals told...

    Got a draft pick for Ozuna. Can sign the kid from the Cubs without giving one up. I am ok looking at the internal options. Suppose to be deep in outfielders and will probably find out sooner than later.
