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.

Don’t y’all love how they feel fine comparing people who support the president to chimps, but if someone were to suggest that certain groups act like animals they’ll be the first to call you Raaaaaaaacist?

I saw that , this was all political.

If jug ears were still president the Big 10 and PAC 12 would have joined the other three conferences immediately.

They’re scared. They’re scared that football is going to go on and nothing is going to happen. That their precious Covid myth is going to get dragged out into the sunlight.

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.


I think it's pretty well documented that there were discussions with the White House, and I'm sure the Big Ten ran the numbers before they made their original decision.

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

They followed the Ivey league, the MAC and several others thinking that the other P5 conferences would fall in line. Only the PAC 12 did so. It was the model used during basketball season and every conference capitulated in the end. Not so, this time.

Again, they were trying to be seen by others as cutting edge. Instead they were seen as jumping the gun.

re: The fact that the Big 10 knuckled under is huge politically
I've been saying since this started that if Trump and the overall conservative movement could put enough pressure on these conferences to opt back into the season, then it would send a big message, politically. I wasn't sure it would happen, but here we are.

Naturally, we know how the media will play it off. Ignore them. The only thing that matters is what the people think. And no one is going to convince me this won't have a huge impact on every day people who saw a senseless decision made by liberal leaders, to cancel the season, and have now seen those same "leaders" get some sense knocked into them by the right.

Sports have always been one of the things that unite people amidst their differences, and we've seen the left try everything they can to ruin that arena. But, when they tried to take sports away, altogether this year, that made a lot of people angry. More than the media will ever let anyone know. And so getting football back for people who have been miserable for the past 7 months is not going to be lost on them. They know who's behind this.

I keep saying it, and few people have been willing to take me seriously, for whatever reason, but rank and file democrats are leaving that party in droves. The riots and the white guiltists are just paid pawns. When the people who have been paying for these stunts are behind bars, it's over for the left. And I continue to believe that time is near.

I was telling people 2 weeks ago that college football, and especially the B1G were gonna get Biden beat, and people thought I was crazy.

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


This is the only answer. It’s all about the money. It would be financially devastating.

But what money?

Donation money. They’d already calculated the lost money from not playing. They had baked that in. What they hadn’t counted on was public backlash to their cockamamie decision.

This is the first time in my life that I’ve seen the nationwide “conservative” standpoint win a culture battle and essentially force liberals to admit that they’re full of shite and reverse a politically charged, pointless decision.

Leftists cry and kick and scream until things get cancelled that they don’t like, or more realistically, hurt them politically, and today they had to show weakness in a cultural arena that they’ve absolutely dominated for the past 50 or so years.

I don’t think the Big 10’s decision to play is being talked about enough from a political perspective. Their liberal conference leaders tried to big dick the other conferences by rushing to announce the cancellation of their seasons first and strongarm everyone to follow suit in a blatant political move, and they got to walk away with their tail between their legs today. Love to see it

The Big 10 was just following everyone else who had cancelled already, expecting the remainder of conferences to follow them. That’s how college basketball got cancelled. No one wanted to be last to cancel. The SEC standing firm is what flattened the curve of cancellations for football. Big 12 and ACC would have followed either way, IMO.
