So IF we play Duke that'll be month between games. There are no more adults in charge anywhere anymore. Or at least ones with common sense.

So one thing I just noticed, evidently one of Pitts bye weeks was to be the last week of what would of been the normal year? So now we play them coming off a short week while they come out of a week off.

A month off followed by 3 games in 13 days (assuming they get played).

Just go crazy with it and get a lot of different guys some playing time.

i'm sure the injury risk of playing that many games in that time has been deemed to be safe by the CDC. Zero risk of injury.

Are you saying we really had that much say in deciding when games are played?

There should have been zero scheduled bye weeks in the first 6ish weeks of the season with dates set aside toward the end of the season for make up games.

I assume the move is to avoid a conflict with graduation, which is December 11-12 in Bobby Dodd.

TV money > Student Athlete’s health

That move proves COVID restrictions by the conference was fake as hell.
Do we get more TV money for playing this game on Thursday night? I kind of assumed that the networks just had a contract to show a certain number of ACC games a year, and they work out who gets which games during the season. (Also, having a football game in BDS on the same day as graduation was always going to be tricky, so we might have requested the move ourselves.)

Well, then, Stansbury and Collins are ööööing evil for risking injury line that.

3 games in 13 days at this level is as stupid as it is dangerous.
