        PAC 10 will be next. Their fans are probably pissed the Ivies beat them to it.

        I think any school practicing and playing during the pandemic is at serious risk of a class action player lawsuit once the first player gets sick and is disabled or dies. Perfect storm to add racism as a factor in a jury trial now too. I think the best outcome we can hope for is a delay.

            I knew they used to have it at least, but only because of Jay Fiedler.

              Nobody wants to watch that pansy liberal "football" anyway. Losers! Time for the people who aren't sheep to show the rest of the world how its done in the fall. Gatorbait!

                Evidently not the same Jackass Lawyer planet you occupy. On my planet we are plagued with too many lawyers (hence the predicted class action), and donkeys are an underutilized source of BBQ. Glad you’ve found your safe place.

                Of note in the US alone, 25,000 people age 15-25 have died from COVID per the CDC. Not sure what the planetary or intergalactic totals are.

                  He will claim those numbers are made up. The new theory that doctors are breaking their Hippocratic oath and are risking their careers and that hospitals are risking gigantic fines to make their hospitals an extra 20% or whatever the number is per treated patient if they diagnose someone with covid. It's an interesting theory for sure.

                    They are made up. Or at least wildly exaggerated.

                    These numbers include patients in the age range that had stage 4 pancreatic and brain cancer, type 28 diabetes, are morbidly obese chain smokers that fell down a flight of stairs and broke their neck all before blowing their brains out. Oh, and they had COVID antibodies so that's a COVID "death". And even better - they count them twice - at their home address and where they actually croaked.

                    But I do agree - there will be lawsuits and lots of them because we're a nation of litigious pussies and it might take all of one phone call to find one bloodsucking lawyer to take a "COVID liability case" and turn it into a class action suit.

                      Big 10 announces they are going to a conference only schedule for 2020.

                      Empty stadiums? Half capacity?

                      yes might as well bump this forum probably going to be daily news on conferences.. My guess is SEC will follow? hope no one has tickets to new mexico st game... lol if we don't follow how will that work if we lose 2 games and a big 10 team easily makes it to championship because they played half the games? this year will be a mess..

                        I honestly can't believe the bull**** some of you will swallow. Estimated stats from the same people who estimated there'd be 50 million US dead in 3 months.

                          P.S. I like how all my post stated was what your opinion would be and you admitted that was your opinion and you still marked my post as "stoned." The irony : )

                            If the ACC and pac-10 want out, let's just have a big boy tournament between the big 10 and sec, maybe throw in some big 12.

                            Maybe the ncaa's control over college football would be the final victim of China flu.

                            Get off ABC/CBS/NBC/NYT/WaPo/MSNBC/CNN and do your own damned research. There's plenty out there and from science and healthcare professionals both on the front lines and without obvious conflicts of interest. Frankly, it tells me a bit about either your intelligence or gullibility that you swallow what those treasonous charlatans spoon feed you without questioning their motives and obvious bias - even just a little. And sheep like you are entitled to your opinions just like me and everyone else. Your promulgating it just spreads the false narrative and pushes us closer to the edge.

                            Wasn't me. I'll attribute this error to the lateness of the hour you made your post.

                              My bad I thought it was donk who replied since he was actually who I was addressing originally and ya I still thought I was talking to him and got confused. Got a baby with teeth coming in so he has been waking up almost every night around 2-3 so i put him down again and was still quite groggy. I don't watch or look at any of those news stations, because they are absolutely 100% biased (as you said) to almost a disgusting level. By the way, why didn't you mention fox?

                              Still looking for a good source cause you know, I'm too dumb to find a good one on my own according to your post. I literally want to be persuaded that this is true, because it would make my life easier. I literally would love to see a good source. You admit im entitled to my own opinion but you start name calling and attacking me for asking you to change my mind? Strange times we live in.

                                    Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.

                                    The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
