  1. Yeah, it's definitely a QB's default throne to take. I don't disagree with the notion that Hank should be that guy, with one caveat. Has he finally been coached to play like he's got another game to play next week, and will he get the protection he needs?
  2. Because that system doesn't just mess with one season, it screws up many subsequent season. We need a (roughly) 9/1 start date for FB to carry it's weight from a revenue standpoint. No revenue this year would suck, but reduced revenue for multiple years could do too much long term damage for many schools to recover from. The game could survive one spring season, but multiple years of competing against CBB (after the virus has been controlled supposedly) would be killer IMO. We also don't have any certainty where things will be from a pandemic standpoint in February.
  3. A guy over on Ramnation had a pretty decent idea. Extend the season, which won't be real hard with lost games. Then, with the extended schedule you can play every other week. This allows each team to quarantine together between games. You could work with TV partners to have one conference play one week, then another conference the following week. It adds safety and exposure. It would also give more reps to the backup players so they'd be prepared if a starter came up positive. You'd obviously have to deal with some variance to accommodate some OOC games, but overall I think the positive
  4. We'll see. I do think it will go to a QB. WJ, OTOH could be poised for a huge season. Addazio does like to run the ball, but the new OC likes to throw it, and an improved running game will give Jackson a lot more room to shine. I expect him to get fewer targets, but I also expect him to be pretty open most of the time.
  5. Will not work. Gotta play fall ball or no ball.
  6. And so it begins...DAMMITTT!!!!
  7. CSU is fully planning on playing football, on schedule minus the two P12 games, but the governor could put a wrench in that. Polis is in some sort of pact with the governors of Cali, Oregon, and Washington to have a consistent response to the virus. If Newsome pulls out some sort of order shutting down the Cali. schools, I can see CO going the same route. I'm just curious if you see that happening.
  8. Late starts seem to be all the rage with Covid.
  9. No, UNC does. Just saying I’d love to move UNC to the opener and get a two week bye.
  10. I don't think we'll get that. The pre-season practice schedule is governed by a formula based on first day of classes and first game. You'd have to look it up and explain it to me, it's pretty ridiculous. Anyway, I don't believe we can't start organized practices at the same time as everybody else and just pick up some extra training. Now, if Fort Lewis were to cancel on UNC, and we could move that game up two weeks.....
  11. CSU lost two PAC12 games. We apparently do not anticipate replacing them. The AD has said there will be no negative financial impact from losing them. Our season will now open Sept. 19. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.
  12. Well, that might explain a lot of our issues last year. Our DC apparently didn't understand the 3-4, what with him running a 4 man front all season.
  13. OK. I'll take your word for it. That still doesn't explain why any individual university can't use them if they want to. If they're that unreliable, smart universities won't. Others may see it different. Eliminating them is as dumb as mandating them.
  14. I'm confused why you are so set on not letting a university use SAT/ACT. Those are tests that indicate a certain aptitude. If a university wants to use those, fine. If they don't, that's also their business. It's up to the school. There's no ridiculous federal mandate on entrance requirements anywhere.
  15. I think getting rid of them would be a bad idea. It's up to the admitting institution to decide whether to use them as a tool, or a standard. The more competitive you can make your admissions, the more employable your graduates will be, and the heftier your endowment will be down the road. If your admissions staff is smart enough to put the right amount of weight on test scores, they might have a leg up. If they underrate or overrate standardized tests, they may be doing themselves a disservice. Don't ditch the tools, learn to use them right.
  16. It's not going to be easy on any school, including CSU. We're still in pretty good shape right now, but nobody's kidding themselves about what we're up against. We can skip this season and survive. It will definitely hurt, especially with the ongoing construction of the women's sports complex. I'm pretty sure we're still on the hook to complete and pay for that on schedule. The key is to play football and allow at least some fans in the gate. The Denver Post drastically overstates the financial necessity of the CU game. That's just a drama queen reporter in a back handed "CSU is cu
  17. There is a lot to consider with that proposal. It does cost quite a bit extra to disinfect the stadium after Wyoming visits, and we always end up in the hole for maintenance costs after they raid the bathrooms for repair parts. They do buy a lot of beer though, and don't seem to either notice or care that we water it down, so there is some plus side on the ledger. Then there is the cost of putting up the "BYU Wall". I do believe that is a conference mandate still. I'd be happy to take the idea to Joe Parker, but his first question is going to be in regards to who will cover security and j
  18. We can do that. @The Ghost of Jack Graham has no clue what he is talking about, however...we'd welcome North Carolina and BYU with enough notice to ensure proper security.

  20. The way I read it, he knows a guy at Fresno but is putting together a coalition to invite BYU to the SEC. Maybe others see it different.
