A gap year where you just sit at home and do nothing sounds like crap though. I’d vote pound out the very shittiest courses online while you have nothing better to do.

I totally agree, but I think they’ll try and make exceptions for sports like college football. Like, Do covid tests before they go on campus, see if they’re good and then Quarantine them in dorm rooms or something. Maybe I’m just wishful thinking (definitely am after I read this), but their TV revenues are worth it to try and make it happen. Maybe I’m just listening to too much Soren, but a lot of livelihoods depend on that revenue at the University for them to try and not make it work. I could see normal students online and student athletes on the campus after testing and living a dorm life to make it happen in August. :dunno: :dunno:

This is why there is zero chance college football happens unless all students are back on campus. Kind of hard to drive the whole "student athlete" and "amateur" shtick if college is deemed too dangerous for the general student body yet the football team has to show up and fulfill contractual TV obligations to make money for schools.

This is 100% why I really don't think college FB (or any college sports) is going to happen. I can totally see pro being able to figure out a way, but it totally seems unreasonable to force students to play if they can't get students on campus. Even if you play everything in Jerry World, the message you're sending is "we need you to play for our money" without the students being compensated.

Likewise, it will also take all the schools to buy in on it, any school deciding to opt out will pretty much end the season pretty quick. I've already accepted it in my mind college football isn't happening this year.

But do it with a juco. Cheaper and they're probably better set up for online classes tbh

All valid points, those are all solutions that we will have to evaluate fairly soon.  BCCC is cheap as crap for us since we live in Butler County.  Just need to make sure whatever he takes will transfer if we go that route.  In the meantime, it sucks crap we may not get to see Stone Poundin' this fall.

Yeah, this is a great opportunity to knock out like 40-50 credit hours this year, then cruise and booze through Aggieville for the next 4 years.

Yeah considering gyms are closed, this doesn't seem plausible, not enough weight to do anything for his players. My wife has a set of hand weights for zumba, does that count?

Honestly, I would think hometown previous HS coaches would be sneaking these guys in the back door at their old HS weight room when back at home. Mainly small town guys.

That's really not too bad.  A 10 day pay cut is about a 4% pay cut on average, isn't it?

No, Bowlsby already said that this is the absolute worst time. New TV deals would be pretty bad for the schools right now.

I completely disagree with that guy, but because I am against any sport that doesn't make money.  If they can't support themselves, they shouldn't exist IMO.  If schools want to piss money away, give it to smart kids who deserve academic scholarships and not rough ridin' worthless shot put thrower scholarships and subsidies.

I agree.  Sounds pretty great, actually.
