The schedule, according to a statement on the Big 12's website, goes as follows: football players will be allowed to return to their respective campuses on June 15, volleyball, soccer and cross country student-athletes can return on July 1, and all other student-athletes will be allowed back on July 15.


I took a lot of hits on here for questioning Gundy's timeline. Below are some of my favorites and for questioning Gundy (which I have found is not allowed here during the off season)I even won an "idiot of the day." award.
Once you are through spinning this to fit your agenda I will be happy to share my award with you guys.
I will even share some of the crow you guys were serving me.




"Gundy hit this on the head. Staff back on May 1. Athletes back June 1. Lol."

"Wonder how "ridiculous' Riley thinks this is?"

"Funny watching you squirm. I bet you really love Riley these days since he's a good virtue signaler."
You and anyone else who overreacted to Gundy's statements were wrong and will continue to be until you acknowledge that it was an overreaction. He threw out a date and that date has proven to be reasonable based on the responses of other athletic departments and state governments.

Try to spin the discussion as you wish, but he made a reasonable plan and was unnecessarily criticized. That doesn't make him a genius and doesn't make him any better or worse coach- it just means he said something and was treated unfairly. You can admit that and we can move on.

"Once you're finished trying the red herring I think we've got some crow for you."
"Funny watching you squirm. I bet you really love Riley these days since he's a good virtue signaler."


You weren't so even-handed with your sentiment when you thought you were right. Funny how now you want to move on and you diminish it as simply throwing out a date. I will agree with you that's it's time to move on but first enjoy a bite of the old crow you gave me. I haven't eaten any of it.

Those are still my current feelings, so thank you for the repost??

Please show me where my opinion has changed from my first post on this matter to my last. I'll be waiting...

Time for this argument to die a quick death. Football as we know it is going to suck this fall. Look at the states who decided to reopen early. They are getting more cases everyday. Science always wins these arguments. You think Mr and Mrs Smith are going to let their son or daughter go anywhere near BPS this fall? HELL NO!!!! My niece is going to Seton Hall this fall and it's already been decided that come Thanksgiving break all students are going home and finishing the semester online from home. The SEC can thump their collective chests all they want but when the second wave of this fucking virus starts sweeping thru the south football will become an afterthought. REMEMBER SCIENCE ALWAYS WINS

Make sure you just pick the feathers out, I imagine they are hard to swallow. There's not much left to debate with you so let's hope for a great season. In the end, we all agree on that.

Just trying to be realistic about what to expect this fall. I'm just not seeing how this is going to work out and at the same time have a sense of fairness toward the competitive fairness of athletics.Some schools are welcoming athletes back June 1. Some on June 15. Still others not till mid July. And what about social distancing in a locker room? Are ice tubs going to be emptied after each player uses? Their is no way the CDC will relax their guidelines before September. What are university presidents going to say to their coaches when some try to cut corners, you know this will happen on many campuses. I' m just not sold on how this is going to be accomplished within the guidelines set forth. If one kid gets the virus, god forbid, are you going to quarantine the whole team? Just his position group? Just the team on the side of the ball he plays on? Are you going to only play teams within driving distance of your campus so there is no overnight stay like NASCAR is attempting to do right now? So many questions have to be answered before August arrives.

Oklahoma was projected in one popular model to need 7000 hospital beds on April 21 and had 298 hospitalized that day. Don't panic - science hasn't completely mastered this one yet. This may be an odd year upcoming, but there's still much to be learned.

Unless Mr. and Mrs. Smith's kid is over 75 years old science says they have a pretty high probability of surviving the big woo.

Your post is surprisingly emotional for someone beating the drum for science.

You know you just jinxed Oklahoma, right? Wait and see my friend wait and see.
How about no. “Science” has been really off so far. Unless you’re morbidly obese, diabetic, or over 70, the data says you will probably be ok. If you’re still scared how about you stay home forever in fear and the rest of us will go on with our lives. Don’t forget your mask especially by yourself in your car if you get the courage to venture out.

I sometimes wear my mask when I go to the bathroom alone but that's another issue.

Football will be play ed. This virus death is crazy low. Just slightly more deadly than flu. Massive overreaction.

I read somewhere where someone really nailed this issue-

"Science” has been really off so far. Unless you’re morbidly obese, diabetic, or over 70, the data says you will probably be OK. If you’re still scared, stay home forever in fear and the rest of us will go on with our lives"


Throw in cancer patient/survivor and a few other immunity issues and that statement about covers it.

Time to close this thread an move on- or move it to the Political board.
