    Gundy’s comments today

    The issue is that the reasons for not having class are two-fold. 1) It may not be safe for students in class and 2) eliminating large gatherings of people can help slow the spread and protect other people who are not even in class. Those ideas would obviously carry over to football practice as...

    Can you remind me what his timetable included? I know there was something about May 1st, but I'm not sure what he actually said. Did he intend that just for coaches? Players in the summer? Games in the fall as scheduled?

    CJ Moore enters transfer portal

    And the one who stayed is now playing on Sundays. Didn't even matter that he was in a very significant shadow while here.

    Basketball Team Expectations

    Yes. And the game has changed as well. As the 3-pt shot continues to become more and more dominant, defenses have pushed further and further out with longer and longer players. That makes it more difficult to even run some of the old offensive sets, and makes it more crucial that your guards...

    Basketball Team Expectations

    That's especially true when your offense is built on tossing the ball around the perimeter and asking kids to either beat their defender or hit a contested three. If your offense is built on ball movement, screens, and positioning, that's not necessarily the case.

    Basketball Team Expectations

    Agreed, but on the flip side lets not say that we will have a good team "because recruiting stars". The fact is we haven't played great basketball yet under Boynton. It seemed to take him 3/4 of this past season to decide maybe we should have an offense that was more than one-dimensional. I'm...

    Here's another difference. I have a close family member who is immunocompromized, a young otherwise healthy mother of 3 young kids. She probably got a flu last fall, but there is no coronavirus vaccine. I am not willing to put her and millions others like her at unknown risk so we can have...

    Sorry, are you saying you think university presidents are knowingly keeping their schools on lockdown unnecessarily because they think it scores political points against Pres. Trump?

    "Yasui v. United States, 320 U.S. 115 (1943), was a United States Supreme Court case regarding the constitutionality of curfews used during World War II when they were applied to citizens of the United States. ... In their decision, the Supreme Court held that the application of curfews against...

    Maybe. Fauci said this about "sports", but it may pertain more to professional sports.

    Although I think Gundy was a little off his rocker, I am interested in discussing this as well and having some kind of a college football season. But I would approach it from the opposite viewpoint, what are the maximum measures we can take and hope we can back off as the year progresses...

    And what a great bastion of level-headed discourse you are! Not sure where I advocated any political position in that post but ignore away, Snowflake! :p

    Gundy’s comments today

    Gundy was either trying to make a point or he is just an idiot. I'm not real happy with either. Because this backlash was completely predictable. "Chinese virus"? "So called experts"? Economy vs health? These are the exact words and attitude that have already led to criticism for the...

    Yeah, Gundy, well they didn't use innovation and a Herculean effort to try to combat something that is "like the flu". And they aren't just "so called experts". And they didn't do it because they watched OAN and felt good about the world. They did it because they are actual doctors, who got...

    Acknowledgement: <---- This guy didn't listen to the interview. I recognize that Gundy's personality and quirks are part of the package, and they have generally been more of a plus than a minus IMO. And I recognize that some of what he said may have been taken out of context, and that he did...
