Sorry Harbaugh, College Football Should Be Cancelled

8

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).

When will this come back?

  1. Let’s just cancel life while we’re at it. After all, if we leave our houses, EVERYONE WILL DIE! [major eye roll]

    • Looks like that’s what’s happening anyway. Maybe get it under control and then you can go to the bar and get your haircut. Or keep living in shit.

    • Let’s just make up statistics! Yay for ignorance. Also, what are the long term effects? Same as the flu? Glad you’re on the record for promoting nonsense.

      • For 99% of people infected, coronavirus produces no symptoms or a runny nose. An unlucky few have more serious symptoms, and a small amount die. Those people usually have chronic medical problems and would have died from pneumonia, renal failure, or the flu this year. 3 million people died in the U.S. in 2017. Put 140,000 listed as having died from coronavirus into perspective.

        We can’t stay home and not live our lives just because an imaginary boogeyman is coming for us.
