But as a result, They will play the "Go Gators come on gators get up and go" which has always been my favorite. That one and the "Move back you suck" chant after every time the opposing team is flagged with a penalty.


Recall I am a Wisconsin alumni after I graduated as a Knight.
There is a Senior's "song" every game at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, WI that to paraphrase, has this message:
" I am an ***hole, don't you know, but I'd rather be an ***hole than to be a Freshman/Sophomore/Junior"
(( not the actual lyrics ))

....

There is the so-called 5th Quarter in Bucky-ville, as Wisconsin's actual Football team sucked for so long, the school invested in its marching band.

This led to a hazing moment. The first 5th quarter of the season is by Freshman band-musicians only. It is a unique moment to watch 18 year olds trip over themselves in-front of 100,000 fans.

I can see that being killed off as bullying.

With the recent spike in positive tests, we are running out of time for a fall fan-attended college football season.

How disappointing and potentially financially ruinous to college sports this could be.

Spring schedules might salvage a football season, but the loss of revenue is still going to be there.

I’m hoping for the best .... in that testing rates improve, people get out and about, and that the overall economy sees upticks.

There’s no way I see states getting things under control before summer camps are due to start. We’re no where near putting 46k into a stadium together.

I thought the NCAA planned to cancel American Football this year. Am I wrong?

He's not an NBA caliber player. Maybe the G League but I don't see the NBA league.

Big 10 likely getting rid of non-conference games...

Not just the Big 10 unfortunately. Expect most and potentially all of the P5 conferences to make this announcement.

Brutal for UCF’s 2020 schedule, but that ultimately seems insignificant to what else is happening.

I'm still skeptical football happens at all in the Fall. We already saw the Ivy League push it to the Spring for now. I don't see how "Conference Only" games makes much of a difference. I guess it's less travel for the conferences that are geographically closer, but that seems fairly minor. Maybe it allows greater control of safety standards? I know non-conference games have a bit more logistics behind the scenes and that kind of stuff.

Conference only just buys another month to see if things improve. I don’t see a world where there’s a playoff with fans either.

Ah damn. I somehow forgot that 90% of non-conference games are in the first month.

Even if the numbers improve rapidly, I don’t see how putting 10-40k people in a stadium together would make sense. Would schools be liable if a fan/athlete we to get sick at a game?

Going to be an interesting QB situation if Milton is healthy.

Could run two-QB sets with Milton on the option and Gabriel in a pro-formation. It would be chaos every play !
