USA Today on the Big 10's decision
quote:

For decades, the Big Ten has thought of itself as a different kind of sports conference, one that proudly touts the academic achievements and Great Lakes values of its like-minded, highly-regarded, internationally-ranked research institutions. The Big Ten wasn’t the SEC; it wasn’t the Big 12. It was better than that, and it was happy to tell you all about it.

As proof, one only had to look at the conference’s prudent August decision to shut down fall sports in the midst of the global pandemic. It was only natural that the Big Ten would follow the Ivy League, and that the Pac-12 would follow the Big Ten. It was a tough decision, heartbreaking and costly, but it was the right one.

That’s the Big Ten for you, concerned about science, medicine and safety. Let the football factories of the SEC, Big 12 and ACC (Clemson’s playground) continue playing; the Big Ten was doing the right thing looking out for its student-athletes, treating them almost no differently than the student body at large, and that was all that mattered.

What a bunch of bull shite. UF, Vanderbilt, and Texas A&M can hold their own against any Big 10 institutions academically.

Look at the media bias in this.

if this was really about safety, theses presidents would not have opened up the campus to thousands of students in classrooms, they got their tuition checks though.

Big Ten has always been an arrogant, elitist conference.

Wow. I get it. Michigan and Northwestern are good schools. But is the Big Ten, top to bottom, better (academically) than the ACC? They've got Virginia, Boston College, Notre Dame (currently), North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Miami, and Wake Forest.

It's truly sad how many sports journalists have been cheering for the season to be cancelled.

Yup.

Because a successful football team can make you millions, but that doesn't quite compare to the 1.05 billion dollars OSU gets just from in-state kids (and another 371 million from out-of-state) each semester. Not to mention their $2 billion endowment that would probably be put at least a little bit of risk without any students on campus.

Ohio State, Michigan State, and Penn State have all had horrific molestation/child rape scandals over the past 10 years.

The idea that the Big 10 has a pristine history is absurd. It's so much more than Penn State. That conference has an atrocious record of enabling the worst kind of abuses possible.

I really don't understand how these fags are from the same region I am.

"Great lakes values" "academics"
The high school I went to many moons ago is still playing football this year, and no one as far as I know is unhappy about it. Rest of the area is playing too. The region is corn fields, not the west coast. There's not elitist values.

As for academics, big 10 schools for the most part are state schools. There is nothing academically superior about a state school. When I can get accepted easily, Im not impressed. I really don't know where this attitude comes from, must be failed wannabe ivy leaguers

Why are they concerned about science? Is covid going to hurt science now. Liberals love to throw that word out there any chance they get.

Let me fact check this USA Today article:
Wrong!


Then came Wednesday, the darkest day in Big Ten sports history, the day the vaunted conference caved. It choked. It got scared. It became the SEC.

I’ve been to Alabama games versus Pac 12 and Big Ten programs. I enjoyed interacting with USC and UCLA fans. Michigan State fans in Arlington and Ohio State fans in New Orleans were wannabe, elitist a-holes.

re: USA Today on the Big 10's decision
I'm mocking the great lakes values comment. Of course they're gonna be douches about football, what do you think they think of the average Georgia fan who barks at someone or the alabama fan who with his southern accent starts going on about roll tide? Same idea

I'm referring to this idea that we're above playing football because of "great lakes values". The region didn't quit playing football, Notre dame didn't quit. This superiority that they talk about is peddled by the academic institutions to cope with being nothing other than state schools and I have never understood it

The problem with the B1G is their leaders think they are Neimann Marcus when in reality they are Target.

USA Today is as liberal as the N.Y. Times, from its front page all the way through its Entertainment Section.Its sports section has 2 headliner female reporters who are screaming liberals, bordering on leftists depending on the subject.
