Posted this on TOS, but thought would share here as well. This message has got to reach the remaining 3 commissioners.

From a B10 podcast (linked below):

As it relates to the virus:
  • .014% of Americans are hospitalized with covid symptoms
  • Just 3.14% of ER visits are due to Covid
  • 0.7% of Americans are an active case
  • Median age death of Covid is 78, which is the actual U.S. life expectancy
  • If you are in the 15-24 age group and contract the virus, your odds of recovery are at 99.98%
  • Heart inflamation is something that comes with every virus and SEC has been testing for this for 5 months already. It is not unique to Covid at all.
  • The above data is after 6 full months and we will never know less about the virus than we did in that time period (treatments, symptoms, etc). So this data is the absolute worst that it can do against the country

Big Ten Handling of The Virus:
  • Michigan's President was one of the driving forces in cancelling. He voted to cancel without ever stepping foot in the Michigan football facilities to see how they were taking precautions! Never even spoke to the players one time. (Not to mention Michigan fball team has had 353 consecutive negative tests)
  • Big Ten Presidents didn't care at all about athlete's WeWantToPlay movement; votes to cancel the season were confidential. Elitism.
  • Why is it safe for thousands of students to be on campus but not football?
  • Why can't you accept liability for 100 football players, but you can accept liability for 60,000 students on campus? Answer: They pay exorbitant room & board fees
  • Big 10 commissioner's son who is on Miss St team has not opted out
  • Three hour schedule release last week was to squeeze some ad revenue on the BTN
  • Not a coincidence that the two conferences that had players unite are the two conferences that canceled.
  • Big 10 medical experts could not give actual data why they suggested cancelling. Just said that there were "too many risks." If medical info was so daunting, why don't they share that with the SEC?

Let's hope the SEC, ACC and Big 12 stay the course!
