    Official. 10-Game Big-12 Season

    The irony of posting this on a college sports message board.

    Covid-19

    I think some teams want to see what public reaction is to eventual outbreaks and go as long ad universities stay open. Tough to know now what those two variables will be.

    Homecoming Festivities Canceled

    That makes sense. There are definitely professors who think in person classes will be impossible. Thing is, university administration will need more than two weeks of data before shutting it down for lots of reasons, including money and they'll want to try their quarantine procedures. It will...

    Covid-19

    Barbequeing @RxCowboy seems harsh. If I were channelling him, I might mention something about anecdotes, confounding variables and imprecise outcomes.

    Homecoming Festivities Canceled

    That will be an issue, but it's tough to say how big. In person classes are far more popular and schools that announced in person classes fared better with enrollment than those who did online only. On the other hand, Stillwater may get hit with a public health crisis from students spreading...

    Not sure if sarcasm...either way, lighten up Francis. It's a message board.

    Homecoming Festivities Canceled

    While a part of me agrees, the town of Stillwater is heavily dependent on football games and even homecoming itself. I can't see how the town's economy does anything but collapse. It may recover quickly, but it's going to be very painful and may lose a solid chunk of its population. I'm not...

    Herp Derp The WVU thread of delusion.

    Definitely going with the football pic I posted before. Yes, there's some schadenfreude there, but that's kind if the point of these bets. To be gentle about it, we didn't specify a timeframe and it probably doesn't need to be permanent. Three months seems appropriate (gets us well into...

    About as ideal as it gets for the ooc opponent.

    Covid-19

    My take on that is you can keep applying the delay and hope for better logic ad infinitum. The reality is we did that all summer and have now realized there are no guarantees things will get better. Overall, we've kind of sucked at containing this. My personal opinion, not that it's worth two...

    Deal was OSU avatar of my choosing. Assuming I'm not running afoul of any policies here, I'm leaning toward this one.

    You should tell the Big12 office about your math. They must have missed it. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29591566/sources-big-12-approved-scheduling-model-includes-9-conference-games-1-nonconference-game

    You overestimate my enjoyment of WVU football

    Yes. The bet was actually with me.

    Sorry to hear that. Here's to hoping for a speedy recovery and negative tests.

    We live in the Upside Down

    Same in Nebraska actually and it's apparently been the case for several decades, which honestly makes a ton of sense given how rural parts of Nebraska are. Some folks in western, rural nebraska would have to drive an hour just to get to a polling station. Our republican governor had to defend...

    You come out all blustery and then keep hedging... First... Then.... And now.... How many games does WVU play in 2020? No hedging. You pick 11 or 12 and I'll take that bet.

    Herp Derp The WVU thread of delusion.

    To make sure I'm tracking, you're saying WVU probably won't play 12 games in 2020. But, you'd be willing to bet on 11 games?
  19. O

    Herp Derp The WVU thread of delusion.

    Friendly bet? WVU plays 12 games in 2020 and I change my profile pic to WVU mascot/logo of your choice. If they don't, you put up an OSU mascot/logo of my choosing. Deal?

    Move Tulsa or W. Illinois to Aug 29th?

    BYU already travels a lot (they were going to Northern Illinois as an example). They'll soon be in the same boat as Notre Dame where they either miss just about all of their schedule or join a conference if only for a year. PAC 12 doesn't need them and we're the next best thing. Also, it's no...
