Not even a week after opening, the Big 10 is already cancelling. According to Nick Bromberg, a writer for Yahoo Sports, Saturday’s Big 10 football matchup between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Nebraska Cornhuskers has been canceled because of COVID-19.
Apparently, twelve people within the Wisconsin program tested positive for the coronavirus.
This is the reason why I was on the fence about covering college football this season, and having said that, I would really like to recognize even though I don’t remember who they are, but those NFL players who opted out for this 2020/2021 football season. In addition, the XFL as well. They get it.
Some people would rather beat their heads against a wall, and if you haven’t realized by now that we aren’t living during normal times, then you’re going to keep setting yourself up for a letdown.
Obviously, I’m straying from college football; even though I love football, and I played it at the college level, I’ve woken up to fact that football is a game within a larger system of life (911). There are things going on today that are not only challenging our way of life as it has been for the last one-hundred years, but also calling for us to live in unpredictable ways. That’s not a bad thing.
It’s like this- if you keep doing what you’re doing, you’re going to get the predictable result, obviously, you know that, and you want that, even though it’s going to require resistance, pressure, fighting, hostility, anger, and so on, or you could turn and go the other way for a nice easy slice of heaven.
🏈The Big 10 was only planning on playing conference games this season as way to reduce the risk and spread of the virus, and I hope they’re able to do so. I love football, I’m a fan of football, and I’d like to see those games get played-and frankly, so would millions of other people.
Have a good day. I love you.
