Cancel College Football is part of The Lost & Found Year(s): Covid Trip Report.
I’ve tried my best to stay away from the Covid topic but, once again, I feel the need to speak up about America’s utter incompetence in handling this avoidable crisis. Although it is not Festivus quite yet, I need to call out the overrated Jim Harbuagh who should have already been fired for being a mediocre football coach (see Meyer Quits: Michigan Should Fire Harbaugh). Regarding Covid, Harbaugh said, “COVID is part of our society. Wasn’t caused by football or caused by sports. And there’s no expert view right now that I’m aware of that sports is going to make that worse. It’s part of our society; we’re going to have to deal with it.”
Sorry Jim, that is an idiotic comment and it is simply wrong. Playing sports does create unnecessary risk to unpaid student-athletes. It does not have to be a part of our society. If Harbuagh wants to deal with it, the only way to do so is to cancel the season this fall. While life without college football will be depressing, the good news is we won’t lose to Ohio State again (see Wolverines Trip Report).
