Safety and health are just two parts of the equation. With players declining to sign liability waivers, the legal exposure is very real and problematic. In our overly litigious society, lawsuits resulting from COVID-19 exposure are a certainty. That's the gamble Alexander refers to in his comment.
He may be right...but he may be wrong. If the games and season are played with no catastrophic viral event, then he's a brilliant savant. However, if ONLY ONE player dies from COVID-19, that narrative changes quickly.
Somewhere along the way, we abandoned the STUDENT/Athlete model. For many, the current college experiment is the fantasy bridge to perceived professional athlete wealth. For some it happens. For the majority, it's a sobering reality the opportunity for a life-changing, wealth building and educational life was wasted.
Unfortunately, we live in the ultra age of PC…especially in the media. It seems most in mainstream media are constantly scouring the landscape for any quote, image, soundbite or misstep to sensationalize or overhype. It’s not fair, but it’s real. Friends and foes routinely regal Mike Leach’s nom de guerre “Pirate” personna. While his sometimes quirky behavior is entertaining to some, others are bound to be offended. Now that he’s a Mississippi representative, the scrutiny will be even more intense. Once again, not fair but true. There’s no doubt Mike Leach meant no offense to anyone. In these troubling times, he made an attempt at humor. Some got it – others were offended. When confronted with the unintentional sleight, the man immediately apologized and removed the comment. Reasonably, what more could he have done? Let it go.

The wheels of justice turn slowly. Just because nothing has been done by the NCAA doesn't mean nothing will. Time will tell.
Ole Miss fans are here - we NEVER left! We realize the road back to relevance won't come overnight. Do I believe we have the right parts in place? Yes. But does that guarantee instant success? No. It's amusing how many arm-chair quarterbacks and coaches pontificate here on the merits of everything. I don't understand why college ADs waste money on search firms. It's obvious the "greatest" think tank of potential college coaches reside here!
Here's an epiphany... Instead of speculating, why not ask Saban what he meant???
Wow, the guy accused us of cheating. Now that's original!
Absolutely no need for Finebaum to disparage the man. Whether you like Bielema or not, character assassination is not a good look for anyone. Civility...anyone???
Is it just me, or have salaries for coaches become completely insane? I get the rhetoric...stay competitive, win championships, etc. etc. etc. But at what cost??? Ticket prices continue to soar and ballpark food costs more than trendy restaurants. And last year, I'm aware EVERY SEC member school received 43.1M in revenue sharing. Everyone continues to win - except the players and average fan.
What a classy young man! May not have won the Heisman, but absolutely the best representative this year of what's right in college football.
Very few athletes can truly check all the boxes of role model. In my opinion Tim can and does. Best wishes and continued success to a fellow believer and his new bride!
Uh, I think you need to read the Wolken USA story again. Pretty sure Vadal Alexander played at LSU.
If giving money to college athletes is "NO BIG DEAL," then why did EVERYONE bury Ole Miss not to mention former National Champs USC and Ohio State? LSU had a phenomenal season on the field. They were clearly the best team in CFB. However, it's time for their program to face the same scrutiny as everyone else. The Wade fiasco, OBJ, Neck and the very concerning Funes charity hospital scandal are just the surface of a real problem going on now off the field. If you haven't heard of the $800,000 scandal paying LSU players, you're just being disingenuous.
This is one of the hazards of winning. Players leave early, coaches leave for better paying jobs, etc. etc. That's why you have to respect Saban. This happens every year, and Bama is still Bama. With that said, congrats to the Tigers and EH for an awesome year.
Not sure what was worse - Beckham giving players money or the obvious attempt to spin as fake money. Stupid both ways!
Fake money? Sure! He was just making another big ?!#%^@ LSU offer...or payment! Unbelievably stupid.
Congratulations to the LSU family! This was probably the most magical season I've ever seen by one team - especially Joe Burrow! Kudos to all Tigers - you earned it!!!
Hate is a powerful drug. Whether you like President Trump or not, he is the President of OUR country. I was proud the Superdome crowd understood that.
Totally agree. My dream is for the Egg Bowl to actually mean something nationally. With these two coaches, it could happen.
Totally support an era of civility between State and Ole Miss. Whether you're a Rebel or Bulldog, wouldn't it be great to be relevant on the national stage? Both schools have excellent coaches that can change the national narrative of Mississippi.
