........Coming back to play football.
The libs will be outraged!

So? Michigan's leftist President and Governor spearheaded the charge to block B1G football, remember? Moreover, projected first round draft picks Wyatt Davis and Shaun Wade got sick of waiting for the B1G leftists to cave to pressure, and declared for the NFL Draft just in the last week. Ohio State will survive, as long as Justin Fields plays this Fall, but losing two projected first rounders will hurt.Supposedly starting 10-24. That's five weeks. Lots of time for them to change their mind again. Pay attention to the presidential polls around the 2nd week of October.
Even if they play, it's going to be watered down. I know Michigan will be without five or six projected starters, and likely more by the time the season is tentatively scheduled to start.
I'm hearing some players who opted out may return, but who knows. They will play nine consecutive weeks, running 10/24 through 12/19. Eight game regular season, and then the final weekend will consist of the B1G championship, of #1 east vs #1 west, with additional games featuring 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, 4 vs 4, etc. No bye weeks, so they'll have no room for error under this scenario. Feel like they should begin on October 10th, and play nine game regular season/w bye week, and still allow everybody to play the 10th game on December 19th. No fans allowed at any games either.So?

Harbaugh said last week his team could be ready to play in two weeks. Makes no sense not to start 10/3 or 10/10. Like I said, I wouldn't be surprised if they're simply buying time, just to hope for some dumbass reason to pull the plug again prior to the new date. I'm not even sure I give a fvck at this point. Politics has just about ruined 2020 for me, but having plenty of beer and lots of meat to cook on the grill every weekend keeps me upbeat.I agree with you as to the start date. Do they really need 5 1/2 weeks to prepare for the season? Two extra weeks in October would give them some wiggle-room to reschedule canceled games. The decision-making of Warren & Company continues to make little sense.
The delay is supposedly due to a few teams shutting down recently for a few weeks. Be nice to me and UM football team, and blame the liberals instead........ still embarrassing itself as a P5 Conference. The schools in the B1G have been practicing the entire time (not at the full 20 hrs but reportedly at 10-which likely still means at least 15), so why do they need to wait til 10/24 to play games. The Khakis said a week ago that his team could be ready in 2 weeks (see defroitfreepress), ok why do they need 5+ weeks? 3 at the most!
It is incredibly sad that non football people are making football decisions out of no logic whatsoever. If the sunbelt, aac,and conference USA can play football as well as 1-aa schools, why can’t the B1G?
btw I know the answer but I don’t want to get into that.
All I know is Pickm has little choice in finding 10 decent games every week and the word decent is very subjective this season. I say FU very much B1G (no offense meant to Columbus, Lincoln, or Iowa City).
Just like a stray dog.I see the Pac 12 is following their big Brother B1G back to the college football world. Big says jump PAC says how high.
