NCAA Football 2020-21 Season

Yikes. Missed the end because of the rain delay. Sorry, buddy.

Cards could not have started worse. Hold on 1st play, 3 and out. Punter fumbles the snap. WKU recovers on the 1 and scores. Down 7-0 in less than 2 minutes after starting with the ball.

But, Micale Cunningham got going after that. 28-7 Cards at half.

Also Wake goes another half without a TD against Clemson. 27-0 and rolling.

In unrelated ACC news, UVa-Va Tech game scheduled for the ungodly-early date of next Saturday has been postponed to some future date. The reason: The Hokies got the 'rona.

If the game is played at all, it won't be until December. The two teams don't have a common open date until Dec. 12.

Actually Duke game against one of them moved up to late Sept so there's a date in Oct now.

The first shared open date for both schools is Dec. 12, assuming they'll play on a Saturday. Both schools have games lined up for all five Saturdays in October.

Both schools have non-conf games in November (but on different dates). I suspect one or both of those games get dumped and they tweak the ACC schedule.

Cards cover. Another really slow punt blocked handed WKU another possession inside the 10 in the 2nd half that led to TD. 14 gifted points. Bad bad bad.

Wake finally scored a TD for the first time in 4 years against Clemson.

ESPN GameDay next week, Miami @ Louisville!

Dude I wasn't making stuff up. It's a free Nov date instead of Oct. I should have quoted the original tweet earlier.

Virginia and Virginia Tech have postponed their football opener Sept. 19 because of COVID-19 issues at Virginia Tech, and Duke's game against Virginia has been moved from Nov. 14 to Sept. 26.

Moving UVa-Duke to Sept 26 might give Virginia an open date, but Virginia Tech is still scheduled to play Miami on Nov. 14.

Again, Virginia and Virginia Tech aren't off on the same date until Dec. 12.

I'm at peace with my lust
I can kill 'cause in god I trust, yeah
It's evolution, baby.

We'll see what this does to the Pac-12... B1G caving makes a spring Pac-12 season pretty much meaningless. So basically its figure out Fall ball or postpone till 2021.

The California state government certainly won't bow to college football pressure, and the Counties will have to play along to. I have a hard time believing Alameda or San Mateo County will make that concession just for college football. Everyone *wants* football, but we also (including most fans out here IMO) want it done safely or not at all.

I will say that if Pac-12 doesn't play.. that could have a significant long-term impact on the conference. That's should be the least of our concerns, but given we already get the short stick when it comes to conference recognition, this basically makes us FBS in name only.

I think that's a hint that college football shouldn't be as important as the college part.

f*ck this quote. You can stay positive and test negative by not playing football, jackass. Play football, the chances of testing positive go up, then people who get it end up feeling pretty negative.

Love having football coaches using football brain and football motivational aphorisms to solve a pandemic.

Clear eyes, full hearts, negative tests, can't lose

Breaking ACC news: The Commonwealth Cup (ie the annual Virginia-Virginia Tech football game) has been rescheduled to a who-could-have-predicted it date of Dec. 12.

That's a little cold for that game, and it comes during (VT) or right after (UVa) fall semester exams, but I'll watch it. Maybe UVa can keep the trophy for another year after Tech had it for most of the last two decades.

Enjoying GameDay from Louisville. Bill Murray will be our guest picker in about 30 minutes.

All indications are that Pac-12 will announce football to be played in Fall after a meeting scheduled for this Thursday. The real blocker are the cities/counties allowing full contact practice which as far as I know still isn't the case in California, definitely not in Berkeley/Alameda Country.

Ugh

Wake-Notre Dame won't be played Saturday. Bet you can't guess why!

They're making space for players to participate in some social justice march?
