    It looks like I was right on the first part, but not the second. I guess the second threshold, which OSU remains under, is a 5% positivity rate on all tests administered.

    I think not many people understood this until it was explained today, and probably not until (I think it was Lesmerises) someone asked again in the presser

    Damned if we do, damned if we don't imo. On one hand, we might have eliminated ourselves from the B1G championship game and won't have enough games. On the other hand, I think everyone in here would rather play the next two games instead of Illinois if we felt that was a likely scenario if we played the Illinois game and the test rates went up. I have been someone who has been very critical of Gene in the past but I'm not going to be here. Gene has been doing everything in his power to still have a season and get as many games as possible. Cancelling the game was a tough decision that I'm sure Gene didn't like but with the B1G rules on Rona, we're placed in a very difficult position.

    Not playing this week may very well mean the end of the season, but that may have been coming anyways under the circumstances. I'm moving forward under the assumption that we aren't playing another game and will be pleasantly surprised if something else happens.

    Just put 100 on scUM and give 0 fucks about the rest. Maintaining dominance over the cock weasels is the only thing that matters this season (like every season) going forward.

    Exactly, “concerning positivity rate.” If that rate hits red, the season is over. Period. This was their only shot. Can’t put kids on a plane where some may still be “incubating”. Can’t do it.

    The problem is playing this week was a decision within our control. The next two weeks we have to sit and pray MSU and scum don't get infected and I'm convinced Harbaugh is looking for anyway out of playing that game.

    I don't believe this for a second. A win vs. OSU, as crazy as that statement sounds just saying it, may be the only way he saves his job. He is twisted in the head. He thinks he wants that chance but we all know what the outcome will be if played.

    Ditto 100% what you said. As bad as ttun is this year, Hairball is going to want one last shot at a win in The Game before he's out. We should blow them out of the water but you never know in a rivalry game, especially in a weird year like this one.

    NW goes down to MSU, 29-20.

    IF we get to play them next week, we'd best be firing on all cylinders.

    The Big can't change their rules now without inciting a conference revolt against the leadership.

    Nonsense. Most of the schools in the B1G didn’t even want to play. They couldn’t care less. The ones who might care are not in the race anyway.

    This would be a simple, “we’re going to let our best team represent the conference” type decision and anyone who did bitch was just trying to get by on a technicality.

    Big 10 assumed that they had a superior plan to end the season. That plan was proven not sound or as science based as they pontificated. Everything since is a reaction or trying to not to look incompetent
