It is disappointing to see football occurring at all levels and the Big Ten waffling about. They should have stuck to the original conference only schedule. In terms of testing protocol, well these other conferences seem to have figured out how to do it. Learn from them?

 

 

In reality they were probably smart. Waited to see what happened and learned from the rest what to do and what not to do.

You are technically correct.  I do not know that for certain, But, Boiler.  This is an IU board.  I'm making fun of Purdue.  I'm going to continue to make fun of Purdue.  Whatever I post will pai

Oh   

At this point they can sit things out. If there's a way to get a Big 10 season started by early October...I'm all for it. And I don't care who takes the credit.

That's what made the early August decision all the more comical. Could have used the SEC start date of 9/26 as information gathering. 2 full weeks of data to look at starting Oct 10th without a problem....if no issues came out of those games. 

If they chose this route the public and especially those of us in the Midwest would be far more willing to forgive and understand if they came out and said on Oct 1st we just can't do this.,etc.....but the way this has played it's made the Big 10 just look foolish.

Either way...with safety measures in place....I hope the kids get their 3 hours on Saturday.

If I'm reading correctly they are saying if 5% test positive practice/competition must stop for 7 days. That number seems uniquely setup for almost a certainty that play will be halted at some point. 80 kids on a roster...means only 4 kids test positive and practice/play is done for a week?

115 on a roster.

Teams are bigger than that, and the mechanism include a 7 day rolling average which to my understanding would help reduce the impact of a one-day spike in cases.  I agree though, it seems hard to imagine that a team or two won't get shut down.  These guys are still on campus with the general population.

So... we'll play

OSU, UM, MSU, Maryland, Rutgers, Purdue, and Penn St.... gawwwwd I hope we get ILL as well. 

You get Illinois then you are looking at a very legit shot at going 5-3.  No matter what .500 is in play.  For a league only slate, that is still good stuff from IU right now.

The way I'm reading and catching up is for the 9th game it would be 1 plays 1 2 plays 2,etc....so we could be in 4th place in East behind OSU, Michigan, and Penn St and get 4th place East team? Think I typed that correctly.
