    Maybe if Fulmer had said a full set of teeth he might have been right. As the summer drags on I’m really starting to feel it will be a one or two game season, if that. I hope I am wrong, I am usually a very upbeat optimistic guy but I have a bad feeling about this season.

    I think all ADs are generally full of shit, but I didn’t think Fulmer said anything particularly egregious in that article. You plan for a full season with full stadiums, which I assume would require the most resources from the University’s perspective, and adjust down from there. Seems reasonable to me.

  3. The longer this goes regardless of what the outcome is it looks like 2020 will be the first year since 1981 I haven’t attended a game in Sanford Stadium.

    “In a survey conducted last summer, about 19% of college trainers ADMITTED that a coach opted to play an athlete who had been deemed “medically out of participation.”
    The cynic in me begs for release.

    Tennessee couldn’t fill the stands before covid but they will this year? OK.

    UT still hasn’t figured out that “hope is not a strategy”. Let’s hope that continues.. 🙂

    The replies to Fulmer’s tweet about wearing masks are beyond depressing.

    “We’re not going to play [opponents] if they don’t tell us [about COVID-19 positives],” TCU coach Gary Patterson said. “We’re not putting anybody in jeopardy on our sideline or anybody else.” Let’s see who else agrees.

    I just don’t see the Universities opening stadiums to the fans. I hope I’m wrong. #ThrowAwaySeason

    The sad story is, if we as a nation had gotten our shit together from the start we’d be in good shape for the cfb season by now. Had we gotten serious about precautions (masks, etc.), and done testing and tracing on a massive scale, the situation would be far different – as we’re seeing in other nations.

        It’s not about freedom. Horse —— Yes masks and social distancing would solve all of this. Right. It’s a joke.

        There are two choices.

        1-Shelter in place until there is a vaccine.

        2-Live life and protect the at risk. And considering that the death numbers are primarily in a few demographics take further measures to reduce contact with those categories. Wearing a mask at Kroger is NOT going to solve the problem. Wear it that’s fine. Make yourself and other feel better. I wear it for that reason. But there is a reason the companies making masks (or someone’s shirt or bandana) put disclaimers on them, the science doesn’t bear out it will stop why it’s spreading. Tens of millions have or do have it. It must spread. It’s not going away but use f ing common sense.

        • It’s not a binary choice as you suggest. If it were, they wouldn’t be shutting down the bars in Texas and Florida again.

            Yes I trust the clowns running these states as if they had a clue what works. So shutting down bars soles what? Stop the spread? Slow it? What do they do in a month? Or two or six? So instead tell people they can’t run a business or earn a living. Yeah that will work.

            Bluto, I posit that they’re shutting down the bars because PR demands it. I think they know that it won’t really stop the spread, nor that the spread can really be stopped.

    Everyone should read The Valley Shook article and digest it. I have made all these arguments here so that Dawgs get the point early, but no clue as to whether most will be disappointed anyway for drinking the poison kool aide in the cult celebration of pseudoscience.

    Giving the scientific facts to you in doses didn’t seem to register., but all the info that I have given to you is provided in this article for easy digestion and comprehension. Read it and understand that there can’t be a cfb schedule that won’t fall apart before August. The mistakes made by politicizing this pandemic will bring the chickens home to roost this year, no matter the political administration of castor oil to make it go down and out of our cfb system.

    Pleading to common sense to try to get ahead of this virus has succumbed to lack of leadership down to the county levels of obstinacy by the worshipful minority of cultist who have the political upper hand in our system of govrnment. Many of you should blame yourselves for inaction and inability to see the path to a cfbsystem that was present months ago and that diminishes weekly.

    There will be the typical troll bs following this post that wants to divert your attention to the trolls who are determined that you not discuss this scientifically because science threatens them when you perceive the present knowlwdge of truth about this virus.

      Thank you for your service to the proles. It’s just sad that some of them don’t even understand how the virus responds to leftist politics.
