And just like that Wiscy mucks up everything and they have to shut down the team for 7 days due to the Covid: https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/30210009/wisconsin-cancels-football-game-vs-nebraska-outbreak-covid-19-cases

Multiple players and head Coach Paul Cryst have the virus. Game against Nebraska is called off and will not be re-scheduled.
How can Wisky even play in the BIG championship game ? This is what the BIG gets for delaying their season for as long as they did.

I said when the B1G announced that they were coming back that they wouldn't be able to do it with making people sit 21 days. So essentially the whole team is shut down for 7 days. Six coaches including the Head Coach are out three weeks. Six players including at least two quarterbacks ("starter" out after surgery) are out three weeks. Wisconsin won't be the last B1G team with issues.

A couple things on Forde:

  1. His kids were all NCAA Division I swimmers and he has real soft spot in his heart for non-revenue sports and it shows in many of his columns.
  2. He went to Mizzou school of journalism, a top level program known for its progressive views.

SI was recently purchased and is trying to position its self as more of a "new" progressive leaning digital media resource similar to millennial focused juggernauts like Daily Beast, Politico, Salon, etc... The old SI of Frank Deford is long gone to the point the Swimsuit issue has fat girls in the spread to show inclusion. The columnist now tend to lean young and they have added a bit more personnel bias to their work. Believe it or not Forde is not the worst of the lot, that goes to MLB writer Stephanie Apstein who editorializes every story and when possible inserts herself into the story. Kind of a shame as the brand name is now worth chit and sports was one of he last things devoid of polarization yet guys like Pat Forde have made it so sports journalism now a liberal profession.
