FTFA-"...who is now being hailed as the savior of the woeful Cincinnati Bengals..."

The Bungles have been so bad for so long that I doubt if they drafted the actual reincarnated savior, I doubt they would make the playoffs.

If college football returns in some regions and states (south) and doesn't in others (west coast), I imagine the transfer portal is going to be flooded with prospects looking to go anywhere they can go to play.

But what if the academics are not as good as their current college?

If any NFL prospects are looking for a chance to play and academic excellence, I invite them to come to Tulane University.  Roll Wave.

it's funny people think only one season of sports is going to get cancelled. This shutdown is going to last so long Tom Brady will never have played a game in Tampa...along with the likes of Roethlisberger, Brees, Rodgers... will be long gone retired.

Hasn't stopped teams from wanting to collect their money for season tickets.  The Eagles, for example, had already collected the first down payment before the virus hit.  They delayed the next three until last week but gave season ticket holders the option of paying the remaining balance over the next three months or a lump payment due on July 1st.

But it doesn't seem like these NFL stadiums are going to be permitted to be at full capacity but unless we want to lose our tickets, we have to pony up the money.  Not sure how this is all going to work out here.

I want the NFL owners to know that I'm still available. I don't work weekends though.

The League has already stated teams must refund people for tickets they have paid for if they can't use them due to crowd restrictions.

There are a handful of teams that are good at both. Notre Dame (15th in USNWR College Rankings, 12th in AP football rankings), Michigan (25th, 18th) and... umm... uh...

So one school that perpetuates the stereo type that Irish people are comically fighting everyone. And a teamed named after a comic book character......

And federal law says airlines MUST give customers monetary refunds for canceled flights. Hows that one going again?

Stanford. Not so great last year in football, but typically top 20 and often top 5.

Academically much better than ND or UM.

/ yes, I know the OP was a joke

The pros will play, even if the science says they shouldn't.  Too much money at stake for the players to not play - especially when their careers are, on average, only 2 or 3 years to begin with.  I suspect all pro sports will figure out a way to operate in some manner.

College though?  They can say all they want that they want to play - but the risk/reward is just not there, when we're talking about unpaid kids.  The likelihood of 1000+ deaths per day for the whole summer will push colleges and universities more and more towards not opening in the fall.  Maybe some schools will try to stay open (looking at the SEC) - but not enough to have a true "national" season.

HAHAHA... hahahaha... haha... eeeeeh... no.

And if you were posting that as bait then my statement is directed at the (currently) 3 yahoos that smarted it. Either way, someone is delusional.
