A) Hope he’s okay. If he’s vaccinated there is a high likelihood his symptoms will be minor/non-existent. So that’s good.

B) I wonder how many players will test positive.

C) If a bunch go down for contact tracing, that basically ends the season. Hopefully that doesn’t happen.

D) If BB is truly the only one out, I wonder how the offense will look with him not being there. That’ll test the theory that he’s having a [negative] impact on TP’s play calling.
Fortunately since the players are vacinnated as well it means they don't automatically have to quarentine after exposure.

Well, we can just have the usual Zoom call, but projecting BB’s mug over the big screen. Who says he can’t work from home like the rest of us lol. 😂

Where is this theory coming from? Yeah BB has an offense that he wants to run here but he isn't telling TP which plays to call.

Message board gossip. But if TP has a similar game plan/play calling, it’ll put the rumors to bed that BB has more influence in that realm than he should.

D) I'm not getting the feel that Tony Peters is a wild and crazy guy. I personally like to score points. The more the better. TDs are cool.

will not coach or will not be on the sidelines? big difference.
Did they say no contact at all? Or no physical contact? I bet if they put a zoom or facetime screen up in the locker room he'd gladly talk to the team.
No communications with anyone on the team starting 90 minutes before kickoff and throughout the game. Said he already goes over different scenarios with coordinators before the game and how he wants to play. (I took that to mean that the conservative play calling after the 2 TD lead against Minnesota was not a TP decision.)

Interesting. Anybody know why no contact at all? Are they afraid he’ll glean some info from the telecast and call it in?

Or maybe there is a simpler answer?

Which Bowl Game could theoretically be in play?

I was able to find the following recent Bowl projection from The Sporting News (written even before the Minny upset):

Anyone can watch the game on their iPhone though.
