Agreed, but if there’s kids on college campuses, then kids are going to get sick. God willing, we’ll have a vaccine soon and be playing by late January at least (& maybe with fans in the stands)
The CDC reports flu deaths every year. Try Google, genius. The most flu related deaths in one year in the last ten years was 61,000 (out of an estimated 45,000,000 cases).
This makes no sense to me. My family and I have taken this coronavirus thing very seriously, from wearing masks to quarantining, so it’s not like I don’t think it’s serious. But if you’re going to have students on campus, then why does football put these kids at greater risk? From classes to parties to dorms, college campuses are ideal places for this virus spread, so if it’s safe enough for kids to be in classrooms and dorms, what difference does it make if they play football? The virus is going to spread like wildfire when colleges open, whether or not there is football, and many of these kids will get sick bc of the close quarters in college. If anything, the fact they are outside and exercising is probably safer. I just don’t get it. Give the kids the option to forgo the season, but my guess is that 90%+ of these kids want to play. Let them.
My understanding is that the schools are expecting a spike of Covid once school starts, so they are delaying the start so that a bunch of infections at start of school won’t leave teams short handed.
That sucks. No non-conference games and another month without football.
I could see it now. He'd recruit "the very best" players, then they would be gone after six weeks. He would threaten to "lock up" the other coaches and players. And after every loss, and there would be many, he'd tell us how he'd won if it wasn't for the left wing referees.
I didn't know his middle name was Lou, but I also don't think Trump did either.
@tailwhip99 Well, Obama did kill bin Laden, most of us consider that as something good. Crime rates were actually lower during the Obama administration. (I don't attribute crime rates to president, but since you asked violent crime has been going up again). Obama created more jobs over the last three years of his presidency than Trump did in his first three years (before corona). At the end of Obama's presidency, the deficit was going down and was about $600B in his last year. The deficit has only gone up and was near a trillion dollars last year (again before Corona). I'd take that "mess" over the current mess anytime.
Lol Trump has sent out 6,000 tweets about CNN, but, yeah, the liberals are the crybabies.
I thought Vanderbilt was supposed to be the brainy school. Do you really not know that the First Amendment and Bill of Rights are limits on the GOVERNMENT’s control of speech, etc.? This is very basic stuff. WTF are y’all doin’ in Nashville if not going to school? I know it’s not football.
How can a coach lead a team when lies or at least exaggerates what he’s doing for his players? Maybe it’s time to start to start expecting more from the people at the top.
PS,JR, after the draft, Marvin Wilson will pay more in taxes next year than you’ll earn in lifetime.
Lol, JohnnyReb, I’m sure your ancestors are beaming with pride that they crossed an ocean and busted their asses so their decedent could go pretend to be a dead Confederate complaining about social justice warriors on a sports website. You definitely sound super successful and not at all sad or pathetic.
Actually, it’s probably the very fact that he is captain and the best player on his team that he did this. He wasn’t the only one who was mad, but he may have been the only one who could risk criticizing the coach. And, if going public should cost him his captain’s position, what should the punishment be for the coach lying in public to begin with?
Now please don’t make me ever have to agree with a bunch of Gators again.
Also, Dawg of War, if you’d actually watched the video or learned more about what happened, you would know that Marvin Wilson is already incredibly mature and reason-driven. And while you can claim all you want to be worth 8 figures (I’m writing this from my super yacht myself), Marvin Wilson actually will be come next year. But first, he came back to school, not for a chance to win a NC-that ain’t happening at FSU this year-but to get his degree. That’s impressive in its own right.
Dawg of War, you are full of opinions, but short on facts. The coach claimed he talked to each player individually. That’s not what happened. Wilson wasn’t the only person who never heard from the coach; in fact, the team held a meeting and the FSU AD said many players were mad about the coach’s claim. You’ve talked here about brand messaging and maturity, but Mike Norvell is twice the age of the players he coaches and he’s the one who publicly claimed he was talking to his players when he wasn’t. He was the one who “went public” when he made false claims. Maybe if he’d shown the “team first” attitude you Wilson lacks, then he would have actually reached to his players instead of just telling people he did.
He’s a Vanderbilt fan. His team has never been relevant on the football field.
I don’t get that either. I’d much rather play Fisher or Stoops than Malzahn. Stoops has done more with less, but it still hasn’t been that much, while Fisher barely beat Ole Miss and Arkansas last year and could have easily gone 6-7.
Lol LSU has definitely dominated the Dawgs the last few years. I think y’all proved no coach could stop LSU last year though.
I’m ok with Kirby Smart not getting the respect he deserves. I think it only furthers his drive, but it really doesn’t make a lot of sense. The author cites Mullen’s second year as proof of his game day smarts, but Smart led UGA to the national championship game in his second year with a true freshman QB. In the NC game against what many considered one of the best Alabama teams ever, UGA dominated the first half. With only two weeks to prepare, UGA shut Alabama down, and if not for the extraordinary talent of Tua, would have won that game handily. The next year in the SEC championship, UGA shut Tua down and again took Alabama to the wire, only to be undone by a change at QB the team did not expect. UGA was considered toast after last year’s USC loss, but again beat its rivals to win the East, relying on a defense that suffocated both Auburn and UF for three quarters. If our offense had been able to match our defense who knows where we might have gotten.
It’s crazy that Big 12 people want to come here and talk smack about strength of schedule. There are people paid to study this stuff, and everyone agrees the Big 12 is barely better than the PAC 12. Baylor is 5-0 this year and ranked 22! If they were 5-0 in the SEC or Big Ten, they would be top 5 or 6. Without Oklahoma, no one would even talk about the Big 12. Have some dignity and don’t try to claim things you haven’t earned, a la UCF.
I guess that goes for Oklahoma too, which got Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield. Hell, OU couldn’t field a team without all the Texas players who opt not to play for Texas!
Smacked us in the mouth?! It was literally a consolation game for a team that was minutes away from another playoff. Georgia didn’t care, and it showed. We literally had second string starting most of our defense due to injuries and players opting for the NFL, yet we only lost by 7! Texas is back, alright....back to mediocre.
