Didnt the OP say this in a subsequent post?

And if the PAC 12 doesn't follow, then there must also be a cultural element.

I know it's hard for you trumpanzees to realize that the universe doesn't revolve around trump. The B10 decision was based on money pure and simple.

Two things can be true at the same time. Money is certainly a big factor, but so is the democrat need to hurt Trump in the states that won him the 2016 election.

No it doesn't. Money. M O N E Y is the reason for decisions made about college football. I know it's hard for you to grasp but you need to remember that most people don't buy that trump is god on earth like you folks do.

If you have ever voted for a Democrat you are a Democrat.

That stench doesn't wash off.

The big 10 was the first major conference to cancel. They didn’t follow anything.

This is one of the problems with the country. How many people on this board talk up Tulsi Gabbard even though she is a Democrat? I vote for the occasional Democrat at the local level because I agree with their local policies. I am pretty much always a federal GOP voter but I won't say that I will always vote for the Republican. Stop blinding yourself to a specific party because parties change. 16 years ago the Trump coalition of union voters was vilified by many of the same people who voted for Bush then that are Trump loyalists now. We should be encouraging people to come to our side of the political spectrum and not ostracizing them for having different views in the past.

So did they not realize all the money they were losing when they cancelled the season in the first place? By your idea, if they didn't cancel for political reasons, then they are just incompetent idiots. So which is it?

They knew exactly how much revenue they would forego before they voted. They knew how much the direct costs were before they voted.

They did not bank on the unseen costs. That’s why they’re voting to play now.

They thought they would play on the spring and make money. When the projections showed the money they would lose vs playing in the fall they couldn't about face fast enough. Money talks. Political bull shite walks.

I’m thinking it’s more about universities realizing how much money they will lose if they don’t play.


The problem is really that football and basketball $ end up subsidizing the rest of the sports. You can lose out on all the football money and be totally fine...if you don’t have to pay any coaches or allow any other sports to play. What you can’t do is cancel football and think you can still afford men’s soccer, cc/track, and all of the women’s sports.

You’re saying an $800M business didn’t know the consequences of the decision they made to not play football before they made the decision? That may be more stupid than anything previously posited in this thread.
