    Big Ten Cancels 2020 Football Season

    Navy pilots have a saying in regard to the intelligence community: “We’ll bet your life on it.” Essentially, the pilots accept all the risks for the intel assessments. This is what the Big10 and Pac12 are avoiding. The SEC, Big12, ACC are in essence willing to bet their players lives/health in...

    The U of I testing program for students will be one of, if not the top testing program in the US. Staff and students will get tested twice a week and they are developing an app to trace the buildings you enter on campus. If you miss a Covid test, you then aren’t allowed to go to class. If there...

    If the rest of the US was at a 1.9% positivity rate sports would be a go for sure. Also, how is it that Illinois is more competent at this than the Cardinals and the Marlins?

    Bonner’s reasons for not playing are probably the most well informed I’ve seen for this. 1. He doesn’t want to get sick in part because he has asthma 2. He doesn’t want to get others sick 3. He doesn’t want to only play part of a senior season only to have it cancelled 4. He doesn’t want to...

    Some...errr...interesting ideas coming out of Oklahoma. I semi understand the logic re:flexibility. But starting earlier seems questionable. NCAA should probably just extend the number of weeks to play a season rather then allow this. That would at least accomplish the flexibility aspect...

    Read Werners piece on Strain. In it he refers to him as undersized. Is that a weight/muscle thing or is he just wrong or do I not understand? As far as I can tell Strain is 5-10 or 5-11 neither of which are undersized. I mean Wisconsin has like 4 or so DBs at 5’10 or less.

    I’m waiting for the NFL or Big10 to make a run at creating a VR experience with Oculus Quest or something. Charge 20 bucks to make it feel like you are in the stands. Connect it to friends Facebook accounts so you can sorta watch it together. How hard can it be?

    Guess you are right. Strange no one else is reporting it considering Smalling is essentially our #2 receiver. He almost made it sound like Smalling was more personal issues than whatever is going on with Cerny

    Big Ten Tournament Canceled

    Alright so to the people who believe this is an overreaction. The idea is to reduce the speed of the spread so that our healthcare system can actually treat the patients that need it. If you allow the virus to spread unimpeded it will inarguably lead to triaging (aka deciding which patients live...
