    Dunno about this, Woke Mason twitter has the pitchforks out. Did you know they are endangering student athletes for profit! For shame!

    Just call ByGeorge out directly if you’re going to talk about them.

    For the record, I disagree with the majority of Bryan’s rant.

    I too disagree with about 80% of his twitter rant but if I had that much of a problem I would have replied to him or at least tag him here

    I read that rant this morning. Meh, I get the anger at least.

    It floors me though that people think there can be some sort of an airtight plan or action by the government, NCAA, or anyone to ensure kids, especially college kids, or athletes, don't get COVID.

    I mean, one of the Obama girls just posted a video of her and like eight college friends tik-tok dancing maskless within six feet. And...here comes a spoiler...maybe some of them are also banging their brains out off-camera...ya think maybe? College kids being college kids?

    OMG DAMN YOU TWUMP IF YOU HAD BEEN MORE SERIOUS ABOUT MASKS ALL THE COLLEGE KIDS WHO WATCH POLITICAL PRESS CONFERENCES EVERY DAY NO DOUBT WOULDN'T BE BANGING RIGHT NOW. AND ALSO MALIA OBAMA!

    Is that a good rant? Hey, where did the politics thread go anyway? And PiKap?

    Good programs exploit kids for profit. We exploit them for an operating loss.

    Can you really reply on Twitter (facebook, etc.) with dissent on that topic. Any time I posted actual scientific studies or data analysis contrary to peoples tirades like that, I received bans/warnings and told it was dangerous...

    Bryan isn't going full nuclear regarding the science behind the virus or with conspiracy theories. I just think he's a little off base on who to blame (if anyone is to blame really). conference shouldn't be blamed and I find that fascinating

    What I saw related to "paused" was that Mason's basketball program was on pause.

    How are we going to work on our elaborate offensive schemes if we can't practice? :cool:

    Cerebrally. This break gives DP time to perfect the subtle nuances of his dynamic, yet sadly misunderstood schemes. ;)

    Even with a 7 day pause, I'm guessing next Tuesday's game won't happen either, but maybe too early to tell

    I still personally think the season should have started in January, gone conference only, and shrunk the field to the 32 conference champions. This is especially true now that there is a realistic chance that they're going to begin vaccinating the most vulnerable by the end of this year. Of course, no one could have known that over the summer/early fall when these plans were debated/coming together.

    Strong suspicion that Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, Michigan State etc. or their conferences would be on board w/missing out while Eastern Washington makes it in.

    A, kowtowing to the P6 and their greed is why college sports is the way it is right now; B, no reason to kowtow to a minority voting bloc just because they have a ton of money.
