Kid once again can't manage to address a question.

He's had that problem since 1st grade.

Let it be shown the answer to the question asked of kid of,

How fucking stupid and selfish are you?


Is VERY!

Kid-Science and the facts tell me that there are real risks associated with playing college football and mingling students from several colleges.

As we've seen in just the few weeks that schools have opened, Cv cases, are reigniting on campuses across the country.

College kids don't manage or assess risk real well.

But some of these risks could be mitigated with some sacrifice for a few months.

I've no idea how many athletes-students-teachers-parents-grandparents and all the other related people might get infected or might die.

500 5,000 or 50,000 more, I don't know.

But If we adopt the "herd mentality" (sic) that Trump seems to ascribe to, that might call for 200 million Americans getting infected.

If 1% of the infected die (versus about 3%) that would mean 2 million more dead americans.

But if the 3% is true, that's about 6 million dead americans.

Those are fucking Holocaust level maasacre #s.

Trump 6 million

Common sense and decency 0

so kid what's you're over under #?

when do you finally say, "that's too many dead Americans"?

Thanks Deej- all good here, hope you and yours are safe and healthy.

I used the over under construct to put the discussion in lingua franca as I hoped kid might more easily grasp the concept of a public health crisis, common sense health and safety measures, risk assessment and hoped kid might be able to use the multi-factors to better be able to handicap the possibility and magnitude of looming illness and death, by having B1G play dates from New Jersey to Nebraska.


But then i remembered the years of kid's boasting of his handicapping prowess followed by his generally last place showing in various pick 'em pools, and came to the sad conclusion there is no common language suitable for use with that idiot.

To quote our presdient, "it is what it is".

It now appears likely that the PAC12 will be joining the CFB playoff hunt.
Two reasons:


The pac-12 announced they will have rapid response testing on all campuses by the end of the month. ( the key development in the BigTen’s decision to return to play)

The Pac12’s  other obstacle to playing is adhering to state and local guidelines. According to Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott, state restrictions are preventing play in California and Oregon, which host half of the pac-12's teams. Scott explained in part Wednesday morning:

“At this time, our universities in California and Oregon do not have approval from state or local public health officials to start contact practices We are hopeful that our new daily testing capability can help satisfy public health official approvals in California and Oregon to begin contact practice and competition.”

But,
California Governor Gavin Newsome says otherwise:

Nothing in the state guidelines denies the ability for the Pac-12 to resume. That’s been a misrepresentation of the facts.”

My choice of “ key games” was based on the preponderance of BigTen teams most often cited by posters here.

NCAA likely to throw out won/loss records for Bowl Games relying only on APR records.

Further proof of the most corrupt sport in America is the horrific response by CFB to the coronavirus.

And half you fuckheads give money to these crooks!

Very well said.

I'm still not sure of the percentage and really at this stage nobody could be sure.

But well said.

The good thing about your posts, kid, is that all we have to do is think the opposite of what you say and we're instantly on the right side of an issue.

Fuck off, twit.
