Good start, Joe.  Interrupt prime time college football on your first day as President Elect.  I'm sure this is going over well for many sports fans.

OSU/Maryland canceled this weekend. And everyone is running with the possibility of Indiana going to the B1G CG if next weeks matchup is also cancelled and both teams win out. 

It would leave Indiana at 7-0 and OSU at 6-0. This year, that doesn’t mean they are ahead of OSU in the standings. The B1G instituted 5 pages of tie breakers for this season. It’s way too early to think about the tie breakers, so it’s too difficult to tell right now.

My buddy looked at it. He got to opponents winning percentage in the opposite division. So it would be Purdue/Wisconsin vs Illinois/Nebraska.

Unless he didn’t look at the updated stuff for this year. 

Anyway, this is a Maryland issue and not OSU. So unless Indiana has some issues, doubt that game is cancelled.

I got to comparing records against the next highest finisher. Which is currently no one. They both have played Rutgers and PSU, both wins. It then gets super murky and honestly, doesn’t make sense to me.

Michigan is hot garbage tonight. Not sure how much longer hairball can survive with this effort.

Thought.  He might have picked the best time to have these results.  Covid, no money to buy him out and pay a new coach.  There is a chance he survives due to his name and finances, book it

Harbaugh will leave at the end of the year on his “own terms”. That way they don’t have to fire him and pay him.

Recruiting with him as a lame duck coach would be awful. I hope it happens.

Soooo Clemson/Florida State is postponed because FSU was not comfortable playing after Clemson had a positive test. 

As details have come out, this looks really bad for Dabo and Co, IMO. He let a player, who was symptomatic, practice all week. The player tested negative during the week, but was still showing symptoms. He was tested again on Friday, they didn’t have the results yet, and they put the player on the plane to travel to Tallahassee. They got the positive result this morning at 8 am. So there is potential that this player, as a result of Dabo putting him on a plane and practicing all week, could infect the entire team.

FSU is still being dumb. There have been 0 players who have caught the virus from an opposing team, even when someone has tested positive on a Monday or something. You are never near someone for 15 minutes straight and it’s outside. Let the kids play

The testing is dumb. Player is negative all week. Takes test on Friday which they don’t get back til Saturday and it’s positive. What the fuck is anyone suppose to believe.

He shouldn’t have been practicing and definitely shouldn’t have traveled to Tallahassee. He was symptomatic all week.

He definitely looked bad early. Looks fine now.

The run game is going to beat the hell out of Indiana. Should be able to extend this lead out to 30+.

That TD wasn’t his fault, but Shaun Wade has been absolutely trash this year. I’m glad he decided to come back, but good lord.

The DBs and Oline have been missing assignments all over. And Fields threw another ugly pick. What is going on
