And another game has been postponed as the Kansas-Texas football game, scheduled for tomorrow in Lawrence, Kansas, has been postponed to December 12th due to a combination of injuries and COVID-19 issues in the Jayhawks' program.

It's getting to the point where these school will not be able to finish their games.  Hats off for getting the season in as opposed to having it play out early in 2021, but to an extent.  No way the year is happening without the cash involved (TV deals, Power Five glory, whatever), or if college football didn't generate massive revenue.  It's a tough subject in tough times, and I'm optimistic that this will not be as bad in a year.


IMO, Kansas & Texas are doing the right thing.  It'll be interesting to see how they plan on the CFB Playoff or the bowl games.  I wonder if they'll emulate the NFL's Pro Bowl and just name who the participants are, but not actually play the games

Kyle Trask continues to add to his Heisman resume, throwing for three TDs and 390 yards in Florida's 38-17 win over winless Vanderbilt.

The only thing that might stop him is losing to Alabama.  Of course that's more probable than not, but Florida could beat them.  Lawrence is getting unlucky, and Fields looked human at home vs Indiana

I have a feeling that NO ONE is right for the Nebraska job.

That their time as college kingpins has passed and that they will for years be the face of mediocrity.

The fact that Scott Frost was hyped as the next big thing and would turn Big Red into a fearsome force by now is laughable. When they lose to a mediocre program like Illinois THAT BADLY, something is seriously wrong in Lincoln.

Or maybe not ... and that it is simply someone else's time time be in the spotlight and that Nebraska had its time to shine.

I think Nebraska shouldn't even been in the Big 10.  As mentioned by several elsewhere, they belong in the Big 12.  Not sure if they'll perform better if that were the case today.  Given Penn State is 0-5 for the first time since football was created as something special on Planet Earth, I don't I would hold it against Scott Frost.  Although given his tenure & this year's disaster, it might be the end for him

 Nebraska in the big 10 has always weirded me out a bit. They absolutely belong in the big 12 playing Oklahoma every year.

I know Nebraska sucks now, but bear in mind that there was a time when people were calling Notre Dame the big thing from yesteryear whose time had past and look where they are now.

FWIW I believe that Colorado also belongs in the big 12. I'm a Sun Devils fan and ASU alum who lives about 4.3 miles south of Sun Devil Stadium. When I heard the Pac 10 was expanding to the Pac 12, I thought it should have been Utah and BYU. In my opinion, BYU is a better fit for the Pac 12, especially with Utah now in the Pac 12.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.
