I’m glad you admit it. You used the language of someone else right down to the “coronavirus doomsayers slammed” and passed it off as original writing. Textbook plagiarism. And really lazy.
Except, of course, I made that point months ago.

It’s not the “point”  you supposedly made. It’s that you stole someone’s words to make it.

Red's point seems to be that months ago he did not accept nor understand the risks of covid as warned by "experts" (not identified).

And in that time millions of Americans got sick and hundreds of thousands died.

Its no wonder he chose to distract and mislead.

Cleaning up loose ends regarding the size of Brad Van Pelt.

From the listing of Van Pelt in the College Football Hall of Fame:

Brad Van Pelt was a two-time All-America, unanimous in 1972. That year he won the Maxwell trophy as the nation's best player. This was the first time a defensive back won the award. Also in 1972, he was named Chevrolet Defensive Player of the Year and Columbus Touchdown Club Defensive Player of the Year. In his career, he had 14 interceptions. He returned two of them for touchdowns. Brad was one of college football's largest players at his position, as such he was also extremely valuable in run support and often shifted into a linebacker.


His physical stats at MSU, according to the Hall of Fame, were
6’5””
235 lbs

In a country where there is a raging pandemic, and where there will be 500,000 dead within the month, I would urge caution. As I did earlier this year. .


So if they are cautious it makes sense they can play

kid likes to pick cherries from fruit salad.

But he still manages to choke on the raspberries and strawberries.

The caution I urged related to these apples and oranges

Its not an argument I made. I'm not in a position to judge the facts, nor science nor health factors which should be weighed state by state region by region, before that decision is made.

I would note in a smaller universe than college athletics, the NBA a few days ago was considering a 7-14 day hiatus, and examining its protocols, as the virus runs wild in the country.

Well, remember, Red's teaching certification is only good at private schools.

Heh
