    Big Ten Players Demands Out Now

    They can literally test to see if you have had it, and the B1G sends each team more than $50 million/year NOW, let alone in 35-40 years, so Idk what you are on about.

    What if season canceled

    We also don't know how helpful the vaccine will be yet. Not all vaccines work the same. Some just make it less likely to be infected or make you a little more likely to have less severe infections. We also don't know how fast this is mutating, so we don't know how quickly the effectiveness of a...

    I think what I thought 6 months ago. Those guys are ignorant bros - especially Drake.

    Cancelling college football is NUTS!

    If you then believe this is widespread and a large proportion of people are doing this, yes, you are swallowing propaganda. Like I said, I personally have handled more than 1,000 related claims. And I interact daily and discuss with coworkers who collectively have handled many tens of thousands...

    Cancelling college football is NUTS!

    My job is to process workplace accommodation claims for a large retail corporation. I have decided well over 1,000 claims related to masks so far, looked at almost that much medical and you are full of shit. People are crying, pleading and begging to work. They have kids to feed. They have bills...

    Cancelling college football is NUTS!

    1. They have families, and they are not all teenagers and early 20s. Neither are coaches and support staff and administrators. 2. 30% of infected people getting sick would be too many. 6% being hospitalized is too many. And many of the people who do experience symptoms have lung damage that...

    Opinion: If we don't get football, start the rebuild.

    I think Kirk will be around longer than most expect. Also, I think we need him to see this through. A new coach would have the benefit of the doubt on racial disparity issues and would be starting from scratch with no reason to believe they have a problem (as I think most do). Kirk knows he has...

    I don't particularly understand or value culture as a static thing with set boundaries. And there is no Black Culture or White Culture or American Culture, exactly. But there are things that vary along what we perceive as racial lines and those things become reality because of how we perceive...

    Lmao. People who think they can judge intelligence by assessing adherence to arbitrary rules of syntax (let alone in a forum like this, where I couldn't give less of a ****) are not people whose opinions I value.

    Effects of Not Wearing a Mask

    "Even in asymptomatic cases, we’re starting to see lung damage and potential other long-term organ damage that didn’t make itself known immediately. There’s the possibility that these young men and women who are elite athletes in peak physical shape, even a small degradation of that could be...

    Will face masks be required to enter Kinnick? At Jack Trice, the answer is "yes."

    They were here (North Liberty) for a long time, but the last month or more everyone seems to have decided they don't care anymore.

    Will face masks be required to enter Kinnick? At Jack Trice, the answer is "yes."

    Masks should 100% be required if they are going to try to approach even 50% capacity. But, honestly, I think it is probably foolhardy to have fans in stadiums.

    I literally have a Master's degree in history and my field is the Middle East and East Africa, focused especially on SE Arabia and particularly on Oman as an empire that encompassed SE Arabia and East Africa. More broadly, I looked at the Indian Ocean economy on the 19th and early 20th...

    Internationally, who do you think dictated the current status quo? Elites in other countries are often educated at US or European schools, or local private schools based on European models. They trade with powerful American and European companies. They have assimilated to that, to varying...

    The business world very much requires people to adopt white, middle-class culture in the workplace. It's extremely racist and classist. We live in an extremely racist and classist society. And "clear communication" generally means "clear to middle class or rich white people." And "professional"...

    Proper English? So, you are calling other dialects improper? And, as someone with an MA who did just fine in our educational system, yes. Our educational system too often reinforces dominant social norms and heirarchies instead of challenging them. I absolutely advocate for reform of all sorts...

    We should be able to understand a slightly different dialect of our own language that is spoken by a sizable minority of people in our own cities. If not, I'd say we're too closed off and not culturally fluent or open, at best. But honestly, I don't buy that. I think people do understand (or...

    Intelligible to whom? AAVE is perfectly intelligible to other AAVE speakers and anyone else familiar. And it has a grammar, vocabulary and syntax just as clear, nuanced and communicative as any other English dialect. It's only deemed lesser because most speakers are Black and/or poor. So, if it...
