The MAC made it official, although they don't say why the decision had to wait until yesterday's covid tests: https://getsomemaction.com/news/2020/12/9/buffalo-to-play...

Yeah, but the MAC clearly could have been much more transparent with the tiebreaker criteria. I understand this was a very unusual year, but leaving teams and fans in the dark with how you're handling it was shady

Is Ohio done for the season? No bowl game?

And for what purpose? This Saturday is the end of the fall semester. Send the guys home, save money on room and board expenses, and start planning for 2021 when everyone comes back next month.

Can you guys foresee any current seniors returning? Or..what 3 seniors would you most want back? I say Tuggle, Dorsa and Meservy.

There were 2 or 3 players who at the beginning of the season decided to take the year off (I can't recall who they were). I'm wondering if their decision was just for the 2020 pandemic season or a more permanent one. Does anyone know if there is a possibility 1 or more of them might return in 2021.

I’d like to see graduating Seniors get one last game. It would suck playing a game not knowing “that was it” on their football career.


I've seen crazier things happen.

Apparently the Cats wanted no part of either Ohio State or Miami. What a way to conclude an otherwise bizarre season. Oh well, move on.

They'll have another year of eligibility if they want to use it. The NCAA said that this year doesn't count.

Amo, amos, amot. You guys all remember your Latin do you not? To Love. The word amateur refers to someone who does something purely for the love of it. Our young men are amateurs. Several of you would have them avoid something that they love doing? Whether it is to play Miami or O$U they'd want to play on finals day or finals midnight or on a Saturday with three days of prep.

You dudes are getting old and don't recall the bold risk takers who do things for the thrill, the excitement and yes the love? You want to deny the OHIO defensive back who in a drubbing at the hands of the Buckeyes can recall twenty years from now how he had a pick six off a Heisman QB or an OHIO running back who broke a tackle and reached the end zone in the Shoe, even in a losing effort. Things dreams are made of and the fuddy-dutties would rather they stay safe, call it a day and wait for next year.

Gosh, what would a General Patton have said about your attitudes towards not playing?

Time for some of you to remember the lines from Man in the Arena: "the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Not without a raised annual scholarship count from the NCAA and a huge bump from the school in players on scholarship.

Lots of guys will graduate and never play another down.

Or Buffalo. Or Miami the first time. We spent more time and energy avoiding playing than we did playing games.

As Omar Bradley described Patton, us playing another game would’ve made us “ bluster, inclined to treat the troops and subordinates as morons.”

We should keep a list of seniors who have said their goodbyes. Conrad, Kittrell and Dorsa have all said goodbye that I've seen. How about Tuggle? How about the Luerhmans? Meservy?

BSU will be without its best RB when they play for the MACC Friday night. He's opted out to get ready for the NFL draft. https://www.themorningsun.com/sports/ball-states-top-runn...

At least four teams with .500+ records -- BC, Pitt, UVA and Stanford -- have voted not to accept bowl bids.

Looks like a lot of people have had enough of this season.

When we tell people to stay home for the holidays yet travelling parties of 100 or more are flying around the country, it's no wonder we have anti-vaxers protesting with signs on East State Street. Too too many mixed messages. Good for those four schools.

Does anyone know if O.U. has said anything official about whether they
would accept a bowl bid, if one was offered ?

Per Jason Arkley, Ohio stated it will not accept a bowl bid. Which I 100% agree with.

I'm somewhat baffled schools are even wanting to play in the small bowls this year. Why??? They're no more than glorified scrimmages anyway and hardly anyone cares about them in normal years let alone this season. Play all the conference championships, then let the big boys play the major bowls and playoffs and call it a wrap.
