    Wrong headline - buffalo - human encounter

    If you go through Custer in anything but a fully enclosed vehicle, you're asking for it. Getting off any vehicle is just remarkably stupid.

    Abandoned Golf Course in Newton

    I guess I'm lucky in that I live around Des Moines, and there are still some nice small courses. I haven't played golf anywhere but Grand View for a long time. Even then though, it isn't cheap.

    Abandoned Golf Course in Newton

    My parents are super into golf, have been my whole life, and still play to this day and my dad is almost 80. That part of it appeals to me. I have a friend that is really into it, so I'll play with him when he wants to. But I'd be perfectly happy never playing again ever. It's just more money...

    Abandoned Golf Course in Newton

    COVID has had a huge impact for sure in a positive way for golf, because it's one of the few things you can actually do. I've even played a few rounds this year. Whether that is sustainable after this year or not remains to be seen. However, as of 2019 there is no denying that rounds played...

    Will the BIG10 Reverse Their Decision?

    I think you owe it to the players too. We'll know right away how much of a crapshow campus is. If we see a spike in cases on campus but not on the teams, then we're good.

    Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Movie industry will be fine. I listen to a lot of movie pods and there is a ton of hand wringing about the industry as a whole, but there have never been more movies and TV produced than there is right now. I don't get the concern there. I do worry about theaters. I'm pushing 40 and I'm not...

    Abandoned Golf Course in Newton

    I work for a company that does lending to golf courses and stuff. Most golf courses break even at best, even the really nice ones. Many of them go past due in the fall before they start getting people's dues for the next year. People play golf a lot less than they did at the height of Tiger...

    Will the BIG10 Reverse Their Decision?

    Guy on Murph and Andy yesterday said that 6% of athletes have gotten it and the positive cases went way down after they first got back on campus. If there is a 6% or less positive rate among the general student population this fall I'd be absolutely shocked. Blown away actually. As of right...

    Will the BIG10 Reverse Their Decision?

    I think COVID is serious. I also think if kids are going to be on campus for class, the risk in playing football is only marginally different than living in a dorm.

    Will the BIG10 Reverse Their Decision?

    It's not like they didn't listen to experts either. They've consulted people obviously, we know about some of them. Like everything, there are experts that disagree on this topic.

    Purdue Coach's Spring Football Plan

    If you want to know why spring football is a no go, just read this guy's plan. https://www.goldandblackdigital.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/2021-Spring-Football-Proposal.pdf 8 games in the spring, starting in March. 10 games in the fall, starting in October. 1. You're blowing up two...

    Will the BIG10 Reverse Their Decision?

    This would require powerful people to say they screwed up. Tell me again how many times that has happened.

    Tom Shatel: Is this the beginning of the end for Nebraska in the Big Ten?

    I love how this is Howard's reaction to this. Dude, the Big 10 has schools that have had multiple, decades long child rape scandals. But Neb wants to play football and that really gets his dander up.

    Tom Shatel: Is this the beginning of the end for Nebraska in the Big Ten?

    I went there in a brutally cold game to watch Iowa win the division whatever year that happened. The stadium looks amazing from the highway. Inside it's a weird labyrinth of small concourses to get to your seat, and much like everything else there it was probably fantastic in the 80s but not so...

    Would you rather be in the big 12 or the big 10?

    This year: Big 12. Most years: Big 10.

    Big Ten and Pac-12 cancel 2020 fall football seasons

    The utter hilarity of Big 10 schools trying to play anyway despite what Warren said last week is going to be absolutely amazing.
