Chip: COVID cases were inevitable, but to play or not to play remains confounding

per Chip:

The controversial finish overshadowed the main topic pregame.

The Gophers didn’t officially announce who or why individual players didn’t participate, only that 22 players did not suit up, leaving them with only 61 scholarship players available.

To reiterate, not all were because of COVID-19 positives. Some players were injured. The school does not provide specifics when players miss games.

But hearing that news — 20 players sidelined — is jolting and impossible to simply brush aside as, oh well, that’s just 2020.

And yet … I still support playing the game. I support giving this season a shot, knowing it is chaotic and not guaranteed to reach the finish line.

Is this worth it?


Go Gophers!!

"Seventeen games scheduled for this weekend have been postponed or canceled. That number was 15 last week, 10 the week before that."

Odds are, the number will rise again next week. If the Gophers happen to be among the games impacted and (oh no!) takes down Wisconsin's title hopes, what a shame that would be.
