What a sh!tshow....hope all the affected players are ok.
That includes the ones who tested + vs USF. Still, WTF is going on? Get it together.

That was my feeling exactly. ND canít be the only ones, or at least in the minority, with these issues.

Even if the teams gets the 11-14 back on Saturday to practice for FSU that leaves 25-28 new players (or at least how I read the article) that would keep them out till the day of the FSU game. WF was postponed with far fewer players out. I wouldnít be surprised to see another game postponed.

Oh well. Play with what you have, hope for the best (even though hope is not a COA), and be thankful FSU is terrible.

Maybe there were players at that big FSU party

https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/28/us/fl...rnd/index.html

“The massive party came as nearly 1,500 students have tested positive for the coronavirus since testing began August 2.”

No, screw that. Take no unnecessary risk. Why the f**k should the B10 & Pac 12 have an advantage by playing fewer games? ND is supposed to run their scrubs out there and possibly lose while Oregon can wait until late October before playing a game? F**k that. No, only play if the bulk of your starters are playing, otherwise, there’s no value.

you could do that cause it makes no sense to have your 3rd team get beat by BCs starters. or since players don't loose eligibility by playing this year try to play all the freshmen and backups as much as possible to get them ready for next season.

Apparently, ND is not alone.

Two NFL teams have the same issue right now.

im not in favor of throwing the season away just throwing out an idea. in just three weeks almost half the team has contracted covid, it may seem that ND is trying to prevent the inevitable.

I agree with you. Just saying there is not a lot of room to move postponed games to. And yes it is a joke that that the Big10 and PAC12 get fewer games.

The playoff games need to be moved to Feb giving those two conferences time to play more games and/or allow for more flexibility in rescheduling postponed games for all conferences.

I just donít see that happening. I donít see SEC schools Postponing games for Covid either....but who knows.

The season has been down the toilet for quite some time. No one is going to count this year, regardless of the attempts by the NCAA and the conferences to salvage it....giant asterisk next to this season so it's kinda just for fun at this point.

Wouldnít it be funny if no SEC games are canceled this year because of Covid?

Alabama will most definitely count it. Heíll, as a fan, and if we won it, I would even count it. With or without an asterisk....Just because that team would of had to steer through this cesspool of a Covid season. If Louisiana wins it all I would count it. They had the same problems as everyone else. They would of just done a better job of handling this crisis better.

Hahaha maybe not for their programs, but I promise no one is going to count this year. They can claim whatever they wanted. ND could convincingly traverse the playoffs and win the national title and I wouldn't bat an eye. It doesn't count if all teams aren't playing. And it never will.

But all teams are going to be playing. The only exception might be the PAC 12, but outside of Oregon, they had no chance to get a playoff bid.

They're not playing the same # of games....nor are they playing their original opponents.

Thatís never the headline you want to see:

Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly says Covid-19 'spread like wildfire' on his team

Do you think LSU having a large number of covid cases earlier had any bearing on their loss to Miss St? They did have significant turnover in their coaching staff, both offensive and defensive coordinators I believe. Maybe losing some of that practice time with the new staff took its toll?

Any one player would only be out 10 or 14 days.

That said, Mississippi State had a completely new coaching staff as well

Only having 3 of the 22 starters from the NC game is the main reason they lost. That is just a ton of talebt and players. And they lost their DC and Joe Brady. Too much talent and coaching turnover to overcome
