    Well....although obvious, it wasn't a bad article until the pop up advertisements became too much.
    I like Jamie.

    Jamie’s the only Power 5 AD to comment about their AD financials.

    And Georgia has an emergency fund of $100 million, so they may be one of the few universities to make it through a year without college sports.

    What I appreciate is he talks about how it would be devastating not to have football, but he doesn't try to pretend that the virus is not a problem (Gundy).

    JP keeping it real....

    Iowa State’s Pollard emphasized the tremendous uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic at this point, expressing hope the season would begin as scheduled while acknowledging the possibility predicted by some experts that pro and college sports won’t return until 2021. He also noted that, in the grand scheme of things, if college football can’t be played this fall and winter, it probably means there are far more significant problems confronting the nation.

    “If we’re not playing college football … that probably means the economy in the United States is a lot worse off than it is today,” Pollard said. “So the pain we would feel in college athletics may be minuscule compared to what our country would be feeling.”

    JP has the balls to say what needs to be said. Other AD's are leading from behind.
