re: Auburn maybe about ready to pull the plug - tigerinridgeland
In as late as July/early August hospitals in Mississippi were full and turning away COVID patients. It has been easing up the last couple of weeks, but a spike could put hospitals back in a tough situation again. So, yes, there are legitimate concerns about the ability of the system to deal with the...

re: What is the biggest game you were anticipating but to only to get blown out? - tigerinridgeland
[quote]2005 SEC Championship Game against Georgia[/quote] That was not a game that surprised me, but only because I was forewarned. A strength coach at a local college was friends with Moffett. They talked a few days before the game and Moffett told him that the LSU players had no legs left. Kat...

Plus, the likelihood is that nothing about risks they seem to be worried about with COVID are likely to have disappeared by the time spring rolls around. If we have an effective vaccine, it will not likely be available to the public at large, including athletes, until after spring football. Maybe th...

re: Big ten is playing the long con - tigerinridgeland
Spring ball is unlikely. There is no particular reason to think things will be significantly different in the spring than they are now, and it may be worse. If there is a vaccine by the end of the year, it still will not likely be available in quantities that would allow football. The vaccine will g...

re: Mountain West football players unite, demanding conditions be met amid COVID-19 pandemic - tigerinridgeland
Pre accident waivers, waiving negligence are valid in many states, but they are somewhat disfavored, and may be invalidated for reasons of lack of equal bargaining power, failure to adequately disclose, etc. They are often used, even when unlikely to be valid, to discourage claims or lawsuits. I ...

re: Mountain West football players unite, demanding conditions be met amid COVID-19 pandemic - tigerinridgeland
Depending on state law regarding validity of liability waivers, waivers may not be valid anyway. In Louisiana, waivers in advance of negligence resulting in personal injury are invalid as a matter of statutory law. Courts in other states may find that the waivers are not valid because of unequal bar...

re: BOOM! WSU's Response To Players That Support PAC-12 Player's Demands - tigerinridgeland
You are welcome to your opinion. But no one forces anyone to play football in college. It is a choice. You play or don’t, it is up to you. If you don’t have the leverage to change the rules, then you either play or don’t. But regardless, football players are privileged, many get extra benefits unde...

So what about all those students actually paying for their education and undertaking, often times, significant debt to get a degree? To use the slavery analogy doesn’t work here. These athletes are getting a free education that gives them opportunities to support themselves and families after they g...
