Rumors saying the B1G will have an 8-game schedule, with a conference title game.  That's not terrible, given how long they've dragged their feet on this.  It's basically a game short from a typical, 9-game conference slate -- meaning that you lose one of the cross-divisional games -- and of course non-cons are gone.

 

So, 8 conference games and zero opposition from non-conference teams.  That could probably work...cough SEC every year... cough...

 

 

How are you guys gonna :censored: the bed against Northwestern this year?

Rough day at the office for everyone who pretends the Big Ten has some sort of moral high ground over everyone else, but if Penn State and Michigan State couldn't stop you, why stop now?

 

Ohio State too, and Maryland, and Mcihigan, and Rutgers, and Iowa, and you know what, literally no B1G athletic department can be trusted to be held accountable by their associated higher ed institution.

Mission accomplished, fellow football soldiers.

 

 

 

Fortunately, I've never heard of this guy until a few minutes ago.  He also posted a tweet with this text accompanied by a picture of soldiers with B1G logos over their faces . . . and he seems serious.

Someone certainly has a slightly warped sense of the value and importance of college sports.

No more so than College Sports themselves.

At least this is a phrase they've used for year as opposed to some wingnut that is just missing a Kellen Winslow Jr "I'm a soldier" rant.

Probably the same way Ohio State does against Purdue. What's your point?

That B1G Arkansas or Tennessee really shouldn't want football this much anymore.

America's biggest military wins...Revolutionary War, World War II, and The Big Ten Conflict of 2020.

 

Can all involved in this deadly war be eligible for VA benefits?

I should point out that this attitude isn't limited to the Power 5.

 

I follow a Lafayette sports message board (niche interest, to be sure) and most of the regulars are freaking out about the absence of Patriot League football.  Many of them are also freaking out because the college went fully virtual with a mostly empty campus while other Patriot League schools have students on campus, so there's that.

I feel like this should be part of 2020 bingo. 

 

I wonder what else will happen? Pac-12 seems to be leaning in the direction of starting football up again now or at least looking into it.

As far as 2020 Bingo, I'm expecting to wake up to something like Dennis Rodman being (officially) named Ambassador to North Korea.

Even the Aztecs are playing in LA.

 

There weren't any options in San Diego apparently.

Is the new stadium where Qualcomm stood being built yet? If it's starting after this year it makes sense. Petco Park could be used but if the Padres are expected to make a deep run in the playoffs I understand not wanting to swap out baseball and football layouts.

Even if the Padres are eliminated right away Petco is being used as part of the LA-SD bubble for the ALDS and ALCS

I meant for 2021. Mountain West are currently working to get back on the field so that's why I asked about Qualcomm. This year they could use USD's stadium if they aren't allowing fans.

It's this wonderful invention called a joke. And now that I explained it, its ruined.
