Rumor that Nebraska and Iowa were the only 2 to vote against it
so, can Iowa and Nebraska schedule a home and home, the first game in Iowa City in September, the 2nd game in Lincoln in October?

That will never happen.  The BIG is not running OSU or Michigan off... They'll never leave.  jmo


Probably not. But this is a message board.

So it makes for a pretty good place to speculate about alternate CFB realities.

I'd also be interested to see the scale. I'm sure more people die in auto accidents. I kinda doubt that many people die of food poisoning. Maybe we expand to hospitalizations.


166 highway deaths in Iowa so far this year

It might have been the ole bait and switch.

If they moved the season to spring out of the blue, there would have been a lot of outrage. But if they make everyone think that the season is going to be cancelled for a day or two, then all of a sudden a spring season doesn't look so bad by comparison.

Really, when you begin to rank bad things that can happen to a football player, the coronavirus is pretty far down the list.

Every play that these guys run, they quite literally run the risk of being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of their lives. There's paralysis, there's amputation, there's CTE, there's eye gouging and groin stuff going on at the bottom of the pile... hell, if the stars line up just right you could even contract HIV.

If I were a player, each of these would be of greater concern to me than the risk of contracting the lamest "plague" that has ever been inflicted upon mankind.

Welp. On the bright side if the SEC plays in the fall and the B1G in the spring, we'll get a 6 month football season

If they actually play in the spring, I'll eat my hat.

If a vaccine is available around winter time, we got a shot. Otherwise I agree.
