  1. Um, sure they did.

    Of course, if they did (which they didn’t), it doesn’t really say much for LSU’s mitigation protocols, does it?

    1. As long as LSU and the coach make money, who really cares? It’s clear from the miserable US coronavirus response that human lives in the US are mere cannon fodder for the rich…

      1. Agreed. I mean, it’s not like the NCAA has *ever* given even the semblance of a shit about their “student” athletes other than how much money they can make off their backs, so why start now?

  2. yeah WTF?

    “Hopefully that once you catch it, you don’t get it again,” he said. “I’m not a doctor. I think they have that 90-day window, so most of the players that have caught it, we do feel like they’ll be eligible for games.”

    As the president says “herd mentality”

    1. When folks like this talk about herd immunity, which barnyard animal do they have in mind? Cattle? Sheep? Goats? Goats seem a little too stubborn to do things as a herd, so I don’t think they mean that. Horses might fit though.

      It’s funny, because I think of the people who talk about herd immunity in humans as pigs, but do people ever talk about herds of pigs? I know very little about agriculture.

      Tom Lehrer once remarked about a man who majored in animal husbandry, until one day they caught him at it and expelled him. Does that fit the situation here?

      1. “Do people ever talk about herds of pigs?”

        I think so. There used to be a job title called swineherd. (I think they even appear occasionally in fairy tales.)

  3. I’ve never understood how black players see so much prestige in Southern colleges like in the SEC. You literally have good ole boys in the stands booing any reference to the issues they care about, and get the response of ‘just shut up an’ play boy!’, like they exist solely to be owned for their entertainment.

    Sound familiar? Hell most LSU fans probably have a confederate flag right next to their team gear. As long as you know your place and bring a championship home they can tie their personal identity to somehow, its all well and good. The same player goes out in a protest, and gets gunned down by some neo-Nazi, they’ll gladly cheer for that just as hard.

    1. The SEC basically is to the NFL as the minor leagues are to MLB. It is the way for student athletes to learn and play football at the very highest available level, thus preparing them for a pro career.

      As young black men, they might prefer to be out of the old Confederate states, but as aspiring pro athletes, they are in the right place. (And I suppose that elite athletes have a good college experience irrespective of their color, especially in sports-crazy universities.)

      1. I disagree. The SEC only has high draft output, because they recruit higher talent input than anyone else. That doesn’t mean they actually make the player better than any other program on West Coast or Northern universities. It’s simply an unnecessary inflow that becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.

        If the talent started to say, flow into urban schools in non-Confederate states, in which there were quite a few in the past that used to be powerhouse and may not be far from it now, then the correlation would change.

        1. Are you talking about the Securities and Exchange Commission? Because if so, I have a lot of questions.

  4. They are basically professional programs, they play pro-style offense and defense, and the players want to be pros. Is that so hard to figure out?

  5. You fairies need to stay in your closets, the rest of the world is moving on with or without you. This page is nothing but a bunch of whiny bitches anymore.

    1. Not a lot of gay content here last I looked. But you don’t seem even minimally smart enough to notice that.
