Pride Is What Will Keep College Football From Normalcy

It appears that the decision makers in the B1G are prepared to die on the hill of their Covid cancelation.

According to veteran reporter Tom Dienhart, the toothpaste is out of the tube for the 2020 season. His sources are doubting that the powers that be would be willing to walk back their choice to shut down the fall slate of games.

Dienhart tweeted: Texted a veteran Big Ten assistant today asking: Do you have any hope of playing this fall?

His response: “Very little. Hard to reverse course. A lot of people would have to admit they screwed up.”

Well, isn’t that just precious.

This weekend has given the optimism of affordable and near-immediate test kits.

It has seen a wave of parents of football players at IowaOhio State, and Penn State asking Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren to reconsider the vote of the University Presidents.

We have also been treated to University of Michigan cardiologist Dr. Venk Murthy openly questioning the data that was used by the Big Ten to cancel its fall sports season.

So now, in the face of contradictory science; despite players and parents begging to play, and in-spite of advancements in testing what will keep college football from getting back to normal is pride.

  1. What exactly would/could the Big Ten do if OSU-Penn State-Michigan all decided to give the conference the middle finger and try to figure out a way to do the season? I imagine every other Big Ten school would join in. There isn’t a DAMN thing they could do if the biggest power brokers who MAKE that damn conference decided to do something.
