    Our spoiled society is devoid of discipline and sacrifice. We get what we deserve.

     

    Completely agree in the discipline and sacrifice.  Unfortunately, the victims are often people who don't deserve it.  They're often older folks who did their part only to have some selfish dimwit infect them.

    Rich Hall, who I was high on as freshman from performance in the spring game, is certainly becoming well traveled. Akron year 1 -> Indy CC year 2 -> NMSU beginning of year 3 -> ??

     

     

    Transfer + Transfer + Transfer = Malcontent

    I hope what you believe is true. The country was essentially shut down for 2.5 months and it apparently didn't do much besides help "flatten the curve". I've been running errands all morning and I'd estimate 95% of people were wearing masks. Only recall one person who wasn't.

     

    The rate of mask wearing does seem to be picking up but the whole country lost a little discipline post- Memorial Day.

    More like yall are sheep to whatever the MAC serves you on a cheap platter 

    Want to impress me, criticize the MAC for once 

    Criticize the leadership of Zips athletics for once instead of defending any criticism period 

     

    1)  I have criticized the MAC and the Zips leadership in my time here, thanks;

    2)  My measure in life is not to impress anyone on an internet forum;

    3)  Still waiting  for an answer as to the conference you think the Zips should be in.

    Who would want to offer us anything when we have a bunch of naive homers who always believes everything is perfectly fine. 

    The responses on this forum speak for themselves 

     

    You haven't answered the question.  Bitching is easy.  Solutions, not so much.

     

    People who don't see another home for the Zips aren't homers.  If anything, they are quite the opposite.  They're realists or defeatists.

    It's my understanding that there may have been ulterior motives for some of the cuts at Stanford.

    For example, I heard the main reason synchronized swimming was cut was to head-off a gender discrimination lawsuit by 72Roo who wanted to try out for the team. 🙄

     

    Made me think of this hilarious old SNL skit.  It may be 72 in training-

    Zips football only draws 5000 more per game than Stanford Squash.... mens basketball only 2600 more.  Those Stanford sports also have produced 27 Olympic medals

     

    To clarify, that would be sold tickets not actual attendance.  By actual butts in seats, Stanford squash as well as lightweight rowing would compete with Akron football.

    If we in this community, state, and country all want to see college sports again before Fall 2021, we need to wear a mask, wash our hands, and not gather in crowded bars and restaurants, etc.  It's really simple.  The oppositional defiance from the absolutely ignorant amongst us is ruining life for all of us including these athletes (who also bear the burden as well of watching out for themselves and their teammates).

     

    Can't like this one enough.  People are acting like asking them to wear a damn one ounce mask is akin to being asked to wear a 50 pound ball and chain.  We are a country of such little discipline and commitment.

    THINGS ARE TOUGH ALL OVER. (although some of these "sports" are clearly superfluous)

     

    Stanford University, which has one of the largest Division I sports programs in the country, is cutting 11 of its varsity sports after the 2020-21 season, citing a financial deficit that became significantly more problematic due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    "Stanford will discontinue 11 of our varsity sports programs at the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year: men’s and women’s fencing, field hockey, lightweight rowing, men’s rowing, co-ed and women’s sailing, squash, synchronized swimming, men’s volleyball and wrestling," the university said in a statement, describing the decision as "heartbreaking."

    Stanford currently has 36 Division I varsity sports, double the national average. The institution explained that the size of its athletics program had created a financial strain in recent years.

     

    Losing squash, lightweight rowing and synchronized swimming would indeed be heartbreaking.  Just think of the TV and tournament money they'll be losing.

    Konata looks like a beast (not even talking about this catch). Kind of surprised we were his only FBS offer. My assumption is grades, because he shouldn’t need to greyshirt. I believe he is also Henry Ruggs’ cousin. Looking forward to seeing him in the blue and gold. With all the seniors this season, I wouldn’t be surprised if he contributes as a freshman.

     

    Let's hope his QB's are more accurate than that one when he's running uncovered!

    Yea, any stadium restrictions outside of no fans likely aren't going to stop anyone who wants to go to a game from going considering we are rarely above 50% capacity.

    There have been recent games where we could enforce the 6 foot limit and still not use any of the upper bowl.
