That’s an extensive list. Many are reasonable, but I see little chance of any sports moving forward if this is bar that’s being set. There is risk to the players. No doubt about it. The biggest, but not only, risk is the behavior of their friends and fellow athletes.Good read. Well thought out requests/ demands. Not sure if these will be ready for 1st matchup. But big ten is on the clock now. With updated schedule, at risk for cancelling games if this is not taken seriously.
I believe they moved those games up this year so as to increase the likelihood of getting them played. If the season is cut short due to having to cancel part of season or delaying games, they don’t want those games to become casualties.What is the Big 10 thinking? The last game of the season should be the rivalry game. Illinois vs Northwestern, Ohio State vs Michigan and so on.
I was pretty optimistic about the old/original schedule --- and was sort of touting a potential 9-3 record if all the dominoes fell our way....and definitely 3-0 to start the season.
Hate to say it, but I can almost see 2-8 or 1-9 with the new one. I'm thinking the experts would have us possibly favored at home vs. Purdue and maybe on the road vs. Rutgers. Underdog in all the rest. 2020 should be a great test to see if Lovie really is our guy!
Article also says Lavar Gardner didn’t report either.
Reasons:It is the same conference schedule outside of PSU being added so why the difference?
We tend to average 50-60% of capacity........so it may be a rather sparse crowd.
