I will fight everyone.
I was right. Literally fight me.
Look with your special eyes. I am your brand.
The situations I said may occur, as you can see, are happening now.
I am a genius.
Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking could never.
The Oracle of Delphi gazes upon the spoils of my favorable prediction.
College football as we know it may be coming to an end. COVID has put the pressure on and pushed forward some progress that we were already starting to see.
Players are unifying.

College football players are taking back power and giving themselves their own agency.
The Donald is even behind it!

His tweet also calls for play, which leads me to my next point.
Sad but correct.
The whole college football season is also in jeopardy.
The Big Ten, among others, may shutter for the season.

As of now, the SEC and ACC are still good to go. Other leagues are in peril of playing, like the big ten.
There’s even some chicanery as well!
Frost: “I think our university is committed to playing football any way that we possibly can regardless of what anyone else does.” If Nebraska can’t play in the Big Ten, he says, they’re prepared to look at different options.

A Big Ten team might play outside the league? Preposterous!
Needless to say, college football is chaos right now.
I don’t feel good about these predictions.
In fact, I feel terribly. However, the facts are the facts.
All falls sports are in jeopardy, football included. Even if leagues like the SEC stay open, how long before it gets super wonky? There will be positive tests, lots of them if they play other teams. What happens then? I think they’d have to give in and cancel.
Finally we are starting to get some clarity on the college football season. Unfortunately, it is not looking good.
