Mike Norvell in over his head? Seminole receiver says proper leadership to deal with COVID does not exist at FSU
Not to cover for Norvell, but this seems to be an administrative problem. The FSU athletic department has been a dumpster fire for years. Proper administrative oversight and clear channels of communication prevent this type of nonsense. The fact that twice now the players have run to Twitter instead of the administration tells me that channel of communication has not been created and fostered. Players feel the need to air their grievances in public rather than with the administration. If they felt they would be heard, they would go there first. Not saying Norvell isn’t coming up short, but these things tend to be systemic.
Greg Sankey addresses the possibility of the SEC adding teams for the coming college football season
He didn’t say he would turn down accepting other schools PLAYERS though...heh heh. Just wait til you see the attrition of players. Big 10 and Pac12 just SMU’ed themselves.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!!
Hmmm.... What do I notice about those three conferences?? And what do I notice about those other two conferences?? Still think this isn’t 100% political?
It’s amazing. Warren looks so life-like. When Warren speaks I can barely see Gretchen Whitmer’s lips move. Impressive.
Whatever helps you sleep at night puddin’.
The SEC "It just means more." The B1G "We're quitters." The PAC-12 "Hey remember us? No?" The BIG 12 "No seriously Texas is back." The ACC "Thank God for Clemson."
WOW. Look at these young men! Instead of rolling over and going along, they are coming together and creating a solution to the problem! I think the "adults" need to take a lesson from THEM! There may be hope for this country after all.
The Big Ten’s handling of this situation has been maddening, and commissioner Kevin Warren owes everybody an explanation
"Gentlemen we MUST protect our phoney-baloney jobs!! We must DO something immediately!! IMMEDIATELY-IMMEDIATELY!! HARUMPH!! HARUMPH-HARUMPH-HARUMPH!!"
hmmm... who said this will never work? #AndSoItBegins
Oh for God’s sake....this is ludicrous. EITHER PLAY THE SEASON OR CANCEL IT!! You can NOT do this half-assed! The players are not gonna care about playing! You are going to see players literally walk off the field in the middle of a game because why does it matter? You are going to see the sloppiest, laziest, who gives a fork attitude because this isn’t a real season! What potential high draft pick player is going to risk injury in a half-assed season? What’s the point? If only 25-50% capacity is being allowed in the stadiums... Why is 100% of the teams allowed on the field!!?!??! If one team has 25% of their players with COVID, their season is over! Anybody think that WON’T happen?? Either fully commit to a normal season and tell everyone you can participate or not but you assume 100% responsibility for your health once you step in this stadium; that goes for players, coaches, fans, refs, cameramen, hot dog vendors, announcers...whoever. Or just cancel football this year. This WILL NOT work. It will all fall apart in the first 3 weeks...if we even get there.
What has happened to this country??
Georgia...still waiting on that non-Herschel Walker National Championship. Day #14,449
So if these players get together and successfully organize, what’s the point of the NCAA? If the athletes can band together and create their own solutions why is there an “NCAA”? Not agreeing or disagreeing with their stance, demands, etc. just pointing out it shows another example of the pointlessness and fecklessness of the NCAA.
you want to remove names of people who had provable racist/ segregationist views from whatever buildings on campus... fine by me. BUT ...youd better be ready when they start coming after your legendary coaches and trophies and start demanding a clean slate. you think any legendary coach prior to say ( i’ll be generous) 1970 was squeaky clean when it came to race? Bear Bryant Woody Hayes Daryl Royal General Neyland Johnny Vaught Shug Jordan Frank Broyles you think plans aren’t being formulated right now? ha. just wait its coming
Well I hope everyone enjoyed college football because this is the beginning of the end of it. This is all going nowhere good and the players will be shocked at how this will blow up in their faces, causing them to lose opportunities that were wide open to them.
Tide dynasty over? Scott Cochran’s decision to leave Alabama for Georgia leads to several interesting reactions
Hey how much was that check Saban wrote to try to keep Cochran?? (seeing as he was such an integral cog in the Saban machine) <> or maybe...just maybe Cochran figured out just how valuable he really was, what with yet another former head coach joining the staff as an analyst. I wonder what Saban will do to find another hyper-active, emotional, loud-mouthed, meathead strength coach....since those are in such short supply.
Finebaum is an entertainer. His schtick is to be the stereotypical non-emotional, "Objective", Condescending, "smarter than you", sports pr*ck, that invites dumbest of the dumb fan of every SEC team on the air so he can use their stupidity to make himself look "smart", reasonable and balanced. Trust me, Paul has worked to make his image a combo Harvard Professor/Water Cronkite personality. And then he does what any "shock jock" does...regularly lobs some inflammatory comments out there to draw attention to himself. He just wraps it in his "Professor Cronkite" persona when he does it. The truth is he's a pencil-neck nerd who grew up getting wedgies and stuffed in his locker. But hey, he's managed to become rich doing it. If he can do it, especially with that punim, anybody can. God Bless America!
Chris Fowler??? Seriously??? He's as bland as a brown paper bag. Talk about toting the company line, wow. At least CBS doesn't take up half my screen with scrolling scores and advertisements. Don't think Finebaum ought to be casting aspersions on other networks while that Redneck "Marty" is filling in for that Weather Girl Laura Rutledge.
