College Football 2021: America's Most Absurd Major Sport | Week 11 Results pg 99
Hey, this is 2020's OP. See 2021's OP here: https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/comment/43904146/#Comment_43904146
Hey y'all, who knows if there's going to be a 2020 season or not. But we can at least enjoy the Fullcast again!
Or talk about our favorite former Southwest Conference teams:
Are getting jobbed in their new conference!
Or the two big-time Texas schools that are totally
Anyway, I always say that college football is America's most absurd major sport. Even if nothing actually happens, there has definitely been plenty of stuff to talk about in this offseason.
Also, the pick 'em is currently in "wait-and-see mode".
I still put slight odds on there not being a season at all. Just slight though. We're likely just around the corner from a FBS conference announcing they won't play this year.

Oh wait no we good, the thread is back
Been having a blast trying to keep interest up for the past 300 years.
Ehh, it's not that big of a deal tbh. We had enough loyal readers follow us to the new site and be willing to buy a subscription despite us not really offering any sub-only stuff that it's more trying to find interesting things to write about that has become the problem. Like, we decided to try and start up our traditional fall camp preview series even though none of us think a season will happen.
If you're all that curious, just remember that I'm still writing about UCLA sports, and the fight song is The Mighty Bruins. Should help you find your way. Also no ads!
Edit: Basically it feels really shitty to have people pay to support you when there's nothing to really write about. I think I've written 3 different "We should not have sports right now" articles in the past few months, for example.

Here is where the dominoes start getting knocked over and the Spring football discussion gets more momentum.
e: Also, GO (newly temporary ACC football member) IRISH!!! (maybe?)
I've been think about the bolded quite a lot over the last few months on how fans will show up to campuses (and to a greater extent, NFL stadium areas) to tailgate and hang around regardless of whether you can get in to watch the game or not. Unless the parking lots are locked up, policed, and trespassing rules are enforced, there really is no way you can stop people gathering at these games and then leaving afterwards to the bars and restaurants (at least for the stadiums that have that kind of walking distance access) and spreading the virus substantially after one game.
In reality, expect a stay-at-home order to be issued for these town and cities that have football teams because we cannot get out of our own way with this pandemic and seeking outside entertainment with others.
Really happy that Texas' "year to shine" is destroyed by a fucking pandemic
Insert longhorn/rainbow/water pic but caption now says “I wanna live”
Big Ten, the most morally upright*conference, leading the way
*except for those amoral brigands in Columbus
It really does suck though. Senior returning starter QB, massive number of returning starters, especially on the defensive side of the ball where we had issues last season, offensive side has some really massive playmakers returning plus some new ones expected to make a splash

Michigan ain’t losing to Ohio State this year
Big if true.
Anyways, the players using the hashtags all started to drop tweets like this:

Lawrence and a bunch of other players spent a ton of Sunday tweeting using the #WeWantToPlay hashtag, which cause the idiots like Klatt, Kanell, and Tennessee Jackass to signal boost them and be all “SEE THE PLAYERS WANT A SEASON LETS DO IT.” Then at midnight they all posted the image calling for a players union and now we’re sitting here waiting for those jackasses to wake up and figure out how they try not to support the players unionizing.
Edit: I should note the good media people were also all awake when midnight hit and have been enjoying the entire thing.
A lot of crazy things are now likely to happen in my lifetime, and I wonder which happens first:
End of US as a global superpower
New coastlines many miles further inland than where they are presently
Michigan beating OSU
A real football/basketball minor league, ending “big time college athletics” (10k-30k stadiums instead of 100k...)
Apparently this was started by Clemson dudes (Rencher reaches to Boles, then looped Lawrence in)
It’s amazing to see Lawrence go from oblivious foobawer to BLM supporter to labor organizer and make the chuds’ heads explode.
I wonder how much of this coming from Clemson has to do with playing for Dabo...
Michigan has always belonged in the Big 12 IMO
God what a shit show
No, food trades
A shipment of Zingerman’s Sandwiches in exchange for some Franklin Barbecue. Perfect deal.
Is it like cause Iowa State/Kansas/KSU, etc are in/adjacent to B1G states?
On the one hand, screw this
On the other, can we convince them to take Northwestern and Iowa because there is nobody else I want in the Big 12 more
2020 just continues to be full of surprises...
