Big Ten is on:
The Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors (COP/C) adopted significant medical protocols including daily antigen testing, enhanced cardiac screening and an enhanced data-driven approach when making decisions about practice/competition. The COP/C voted unanimously to resume the football season starting the weekend of October 23-24, 2020.
for now...
Meh. Just like the abbreviated MLB season or hockey in August. I just can't get that excited.

The fact that the Pac 12 has faced ZERO pressure to start playing football says everything about it as a conference. They are the red headed stepchild of the Power 5 who is too hardheaded to realize they need to air their football games in more East Coast friendly times. Half the country doesn't see a lot of the important Pac 12 games, because they are on too late. They really need to wake up and realize that while CFB is a regional sport - national relevance for their conference in football is critically important. There is a reason that ACC teams make much more money than Pac 12 teams do despite the fact it's easy (and pretty much not debatable) to say that the Pac 12 has more good teams than the ACC (even if none are as great as Clemson who is propping up the ACC single handedly).
The Pac-12 hasn't really had a playoff worthy team in a few years. Some close, so there is room for argument, but none dominant.

Don't care, as in 'I have zero power to affect any of the decisions being made by these schools, therefore I'm not going to get upset with things one way or the other'.
I don't think they should be playing and so far I've avoided watching even so much as a highlight from CFB. I hope I can continue to do that; I have canceled all of my normal trips I'd take in a season, so at least that's something. Pro athletes are one thing, but these are kids and we should be doing better by them.

Plus since Texas isn't going to get the chance to get back LSU this year it's a bs season anyway, not to mention, how the F do we have a "national championship" game if you don't have ~25 of the best programs in the country competing?
It's all so dumb
Again, it's not he Pac-12 preventing the CA schools from practicing in larger groups, it's local/state Gov't. these aren't school/conference decisions. At least get it right before bitching about it ;)

And if you saw the Texas Tech/LSU info this week, it's probably the right decision.

It's not "dumb" to not play the games, it's safety requirements. Playing the games is actually the dumb move based on what we are seeing and the minimal progress we've made.
Did you and I read two different posts from GungHo? I read his post that it's better to not play this year than to play, and they way they're going about playing is half-assed and dumb.
Greedy. I was more focused on the "Don't Care" comment blaming the Pac-12 CA schools, when it's not the schools making the decisions.
Yeah, but the "Don't care" was immediately followed by an explanation that had nothing to do with blaming the Pac 12 or CA schools. That was then followed by him saying he doesn't think they should be playing, which would seem to support the Pac 12.

The plot thickens.


Gavin Newsom said he spoke to Larry Scott 2 hours ago, claims nothing in state rules preventing teams from playing.

I see where you're coming from now. I still don't think he was attacking the Pac-12 in any way with the comment. Plus, it sounds like the governor of CA is saying there's nothing preventing them from playing, so it's probably moot at this point.

Pac-12 back in the mix? Jon Wilner reports it may be so...
Sources: After speaking to #Pac12 commish Larry Scott, Newsom’s office reached out to #USC officials. Plan is to fast track revision to controversial 12-person cohort max. That shifts focus to local health, an easier hurdle for the schools. This is big.

Oh, and here's the full rundown of the obstacles for probably the most important 4 teams in the Pac-12, prior to this announcement:
Technically, he said, the state allows games to be played at the intercollegiate level: Full-squad, full-contact 22-man games.

The problem — and it’s a super-colossal problem — is with practice.

According to Section 5 of the guidelines:

“IHEs (institutions of higher education) should establish cohorts as a strategy to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19. A cohort may be composed of six to 12 individuals, all members of the same team, who consistently work out and participate in activities together.”

You may ask: How can a football team practice without at least 22 players on the field?

Well, I asked that very question of the official, who did not want to be quoted but was willing to explain the state’s rules.

The answer was this:

Teams can find work-arounds to 11-on-11 practices.
and then:
Then he reiterated that the guidelines were set to prevent Covid-19 spread while, at the same time, creating a means of permitting practice.

And, of course, games are allowed.

So that’s it. That’s the explanation.

The California teams can practice, but they have to do it five-on-five.

Or against air.

Or with VR.

Just not 11 on 11.

I wasn't attacking them, and yes I agree that no college athletes should be playing. But I haven't really paid attention as to who's actual 'fault' it is that PAC 12 teams aren't playing. Whether that's a state decision, local govt, or the conference. I've actively avoided reading/listening to anything CFB related bc I don't want to hate myself for watching. Ignorance truly is bliss.

UNC-Charlotte just canceled their game this weekend against UNC because they have three O-linemen test positive for Covid. Presumably that means the rest of their O-line is in quarantine. I guess this is perhaps an example of the system working, but still sucks to have a game canceled.

I'm still not convinced the Big Ten will actually play. I think if it turns out to be a fiasco watching the other leagues go at it, they'll probably end up flipping the switch to off. By delaying the start of the season they at least get to observe to see how things are working (or not working).

Yeah, I've watched pieces of a few games, and I inevitably find my eyes drawn to the idiots. Coaches yanking down their masks to yell ()or just leaving them off), staff/support folks not wearing masks properly, refs with their masks down/off, shared water bottles, and, of course, the idiotic fans - 95% of which just seem like fuck-ups.

A little bit similar to our country's response; the ncaa is the federal government, the schools are the individual states...And it's every man for himself.

FCS alone has 127 schools. At about $400k/school that's a bit over $50 million. FBS has 130, but about 64 are P5 schools, so another $25 million. And all the Spring Championships, including the Tourney, the biggest NCAA income generator for the year, were cancelled.

IMHO, CFB in Aug/Sept thus far gets an 'F' for Covid-19 handling. LSU and Texas Tech going the herd immunity/infect the whole dang team approach. At least 15-20 games cancelled/postponed already, Coaches/Staff/Refs/Fans all displaying horrible Mask/Social Distancing discipline, etc.

The only reason games are being played is because nobody gives a crap, apparently.

Update! Saturday's Notre Dame-Wake Forest game is postponed due to what is now 7 positive tests, 13 players in isolation, and 10 in quarantine).

On the plus side, I'm actually a bit less concerned about the Big Ten's return to play after reading this story:
The most important elements of the presentation involved rapid testing, which had seen advances in technology and accessibility since the Big Ten's initial postponement.

"You're catching somebody with a positive before they're even contagious," said Dr. Jeff Mjaanes, Northwestern's head team physician and a member of the Big Ten's medical subcommittee. "That's a huge breakthrough in this. If we can do that on a daily basis, which is what's in our proposal, then we can identify people before they're even infectious, and we can remove them and really maintain the sanctity and the health of the team.

"With daily antigen testing, if you're able to identify somebody before they're actually contagious, and we can remove them, it almost completely eliminates the need for contact tracing."
If this is accurate, it means that it's no more dangerous for them to play football than it would be for them to be on campus. Of course, there's always the question of whether they should actually be on campus, but if the rest of the school is there, it's hard to say the football players shouldn't be there.

Notre Dame apparently has 13 players in isolation currently. It will be interesting to see if the Big 10 was wise to wait to play or if the SEC, ACC, and Big 12 were smart to start earlier.... if any are proven to be smart at all for playing.

I can just say I am relieved to get to this weekend when 3 big 5 conferences are playing. It's just been dreadful watching only shitty ACC football - and I am an ACC fan who grew up in ACC country.

I really need to see more about what rapid antigen test they are using. My Google searches suggest PCR remains the gold standard and antigen tests have high 80 to mid 90% sensitivity when compared to that (although their specificity it pretty much 100%) and that they can't catch you before you are contagious. The guidance actually says you should factor in the symptoms that are being presented at the time you analyze the rapid test's results.

I really feel for the #Houston football players. Saturday's Houston-North Texas game just got canceled. It's the FIFTH game UH has had cancelled on them and they haven't been able to play once.
In other news, P12 is meeting as we speak, with a go/no-go vote scheduled for 5:00 today.

7 game P12 schedule, starting Nov 6

Nov and Dec games in Salt Lake are gonna be cold. Glad I’ll be watching from home.
For those accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.

Who could have possibly seen this coming?


I really feel for the #Houston football players. Saturday's Houston-North Texas game just got canceled. It's the FIFTH game UH has had cancelled on them and they haven't been able to play once.
In other news, P12 is meeting as we speak, with a go/no-go vote scheduled for 5:00 today.
This list doesn't quite have all the Houston Cancellations but, it's a starting point.
The college football season has seen a handful of postponements and cancellations every week so far heading into Week 4. that will continue to be a logistical challenge for conferences as the season presses on into October.

To date, Oklahoma State-Tulsa is the only game that was rescheduled and played. Oklahoma State beat Tulsa 16-7 in a game that was originally scheduled for Sept. 12.

Here is a list of games that have been postponed, rescheduled or canceled since the 2020 college football season because of COVID-19 (rescheduled game dates in parentheses).
There are three ways to not tell the truth: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
