1. What a POS. No regard, whatsoever, for unpaid athletes and their health risks.

2. I think Ohio's AG may want to focus on more serious issues ...

But what would I know? I don't have the link here, but the Big Ten season was postponed because too many Covid-positive athletes were showing symptoms of myocarditis. That is serious stuff, but no matter. OSU must have its football. Who gives a damn about the kids on the field and their health?

3. Who they going to play? Their opponents have shut down for the season

I think around November the Big 10 and the Pac 12 will be getting praise for being intelligent enough to have shut down football rather than kill their athletes.

4. Over football? Why not just break from the BIG 10 altogether?

Why not? Because they get prestige from being a BIG 10 school.

5. Divsion 1 Colleges

need the Football Cash Revenue in order to pay their bloated Coaching Salary Budgets . When the Football Coach makes a hundred times the Salary of a front line teacher,there is your greed answer.

6. They actually need football cash

to fund all the other scholarships, especially women's sports since they don't pay for themselves. I told everybody earlier this year that without college football revenue, you'd see a "rolling catastrophe" among colleges and universities where they would have to cancel most of their scholarship sports programs because they couldn't afford them. Its happening all across the country.

Coaches salaries are paid by booster donations mostly rather than general revenue.

I expect the conferences who decided to play to cancel their seasons after three games max. We already have over 1,000 new positive cases just here at Fla. State in just ten days.

8. Do know how the Game is played.

Sad to say,it is out of control. And I thought it was bad at the Division 2 level,until I transferred to our Host Division 1 big ten school for my last Semester. And that was 56 years ago.
