How many teams have to forfeit their bid before we can play in a New Years Six Bowl

bowl games are expensive
Plus however many weeks of testing. I'm assuming they don't give a crap if the kids get sick for at least a couple months

Yeah, Gene has said the bowls this year can essentially just cover expenses, I'd assume the NY6 and CFP are exceptions. Of course the biggest expense to the schools, ticket buy guarantees, won't be an issue this year.

Pac-12 continues to be the biggest joke in college football, next to 21 day quarantine Big-10.

Ohio State fans losing their crap because Harbaugh was talking about how their weightroom and other facilities were open last Friday.

What exactly should the Pac 12 have done to avoid Washington getting their OL wrecked with COVID?

Has nothing to do with getting Covid itself.  Do all the lineman actually have Covid?   They could have started with the 3 other major conferences and likely have played a reasonable number of games.

The Big 10 imposing a 21 day quarantine throws up in the face of everything that is known about the virus and is even more laughable in the highly intensive testing environment that exists. 

Playing in the Spring wouldn't have made any difference (particularly in light of the insanity of the leadership in many Pac and Big 10 states) and subsequently throws off the entire time line of Fall 2021.

They would have been excluded from the CFP payouts and the rest of the schedule would have been thrown off. They would have forced their football team into essentially a March to January football season with a 6 week break.

Starting earlier wouldn't have prevented a COVID breakout, it didn't for West Virginia and Texas. There were 26 scheduled games last week from the conferences that started in August/September, 7 of those, more than a quarter of them, were cancelled.

Y'all hear about Mizzou and their scumbag coach scam Nashville and the University of Iowa out of having a bowl game? They had COVID issues with their last game, accepted a bow bid from the Music City Bowl, then didn't practice, they sent their players home after the regular season was over, then pulled out of the bowl three days before it was supposed to be played. They didn't tell the bowl they sent the kids home, so they sold tickets and employed people to work to prep the bowl, these people missing time with their families to prepare for a bowl that was never going to happen. They didn't tell Iowa either, so Iowa has been practicing this whole time, had to suspend workouts for three days last week, so for the back half of the week they couldn't go home nor hang out with their teammates. They came back to practice over the weekend only to find out that Missouri didn't practice and sent their players home.

rough ridin' brutal, he seems really smug about it too

holy crap, missed that. Might have to search out Iowa reactions
I hadn't even thought of the bowl side of having these games cancelled. Wonder how much they are out this year.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.

Wow, that's really shitty. NCAA should punish them or bowl selection committees should remember that in the future.

He is such a rough ridin' dork.

But he's a dork that's recruiting entirely too well so far.

he's getting way too many quality recruits. Not sure if its him or his assistants. i dont see the attraction. but if he continues to recruit like this i would steal whatever assistant is doing the work
