    Good.

    I hope we're well off enough by August that "voluntary activities" doesn't put a lot of schools, families or players in compromising positions. Fingers crossed.

    You have to ask?
    What would you spend to be, say, 1 of 10-12k to see a GT FB game?

    Judging by recent attendance, not much more than face value

    Speaking of face, I’m sitting on your mom’s right now.

    How do you play football with 6 feet social distancing? If u get within 6 feet of runner then he is down? If you are covering a receiver then can't guard him within 6 feet? The passing game will flourish. Makes tackling and pass coverage unnecessary. Who will win the NC? THe DWAGS

    Good. Time to open things up all the way. The mortality rate of this virus does not justify the continued lockdown.

    That''s putting it lightly.

    Can you imagine being a Michigan football fan or Detroit Lions fan? Your Governor/Dictator Whitmer has just declared that THERE WILL BE NO FOOTBALL in the state of Michigan until there is a vaccine.

    She's obviously no scientist. There has never been a vaccine for 9.99/10.00 pathogenic human viruses.

    Meanwhile, your rival (OSU) is playing football this fall.

    Meanwhile in Alabama:

    Hey there is a pandemic virus out there, no high fives!

    actual wording is this:

    https://governor.alabama.gov/assets/2020/05/Safer-at-Home-Order-FINAL-5.21.2020.pdf

    Seems reasonable to me. Anything less would have the fear mongers in an uproar.

    I like it.

    That is a sure fire way to get these commies run out of office.

    There is a fact of life in Division I athletics that cannot be ignored. Football is responsible for 85% of an athletic department's revenue—if not more. At many schools the only other sport that pays its way is men's basketball, although at a few and a I mean a very few others..... the wrestling or hockey programs provide financial support, and women's basketball comes close to avoiding red ink. Again that is a few!!!

    Translation: If football can't be played, schools most likely will have to cancel all sports.

    And don't get caught up on the idea that they could play football in the spring. It would be ill-advised to think schools could play in March, April and May, and expect players to be back in camp the following August for the start of another season.

    Translation: There will be sports in the fall! Thank God for Football! Go Jackets!
