Re: OHIO STATE TO THE SEC?

Media rights would be an absolute mess. The big 10 only approves it if they can get good money in the deal. Plus it only takes a handful of "if i can't play you can't play" to block it. I think it would be fun but I don't expect anything to happen there.

Re: No College Football this fall according to 2 P5 ADs

Can you imagine getting into a graduate program to better your career opportunities and being told you’ll have to delay the program for a year because of Covid? Heck no. All that work to get to that point, for me it would be worth the risk to continue. If given the choice to attend the program and ...

Re: It's over - pack up and go home

Safety is the the biggest c...

Re: It's over - pack up and go home

Right now the only hope for college football happening is the SEC. They will be the last conference to close the doors. They aren't canceling unless they HAVE to. So we're holding out for the SEC?

Big 10 has voted and its a no. 12-2.

One reason why I don't expect BYU or USU or any G5 teams to pick up the +1 vs the Big 12 or ACC is that they already have non con games scheduled. They can get out of some of them (or with a reduced payout) due to the conference making them but how do you justify dropping someone and then scheduling...
