Why is this not making the front page? He lettered in three sports at Iowa. Get with it staff!

Ralph Miller left Iowa because of a conflict with Forest Evashevski, a great coach, but a terrible athletic director. Miller, had he stayed, would have possibly became the greatest Iowa basketball coach ever. I never could figure out why Evy was so brutal as an AD. Evy left split feelings amongst most Iowa fans, I would think.

He was also one hell of a nice man. I was privileged to have met and talked to him at an Omaha/Council Bluffs IClub gathering back then. I believe the pressure of some fans and the press was more than he and his wife wanted, so they flew the Hawk nest. Yes, he will be missed.

Question: How many law suits would it take to wipe out all the profits from a football season if a few players develop life-long lung, heart, or other problems stemming from the virus? It just isn't worth playing.

Also: Note that the word is "playing" because it is a "game" and not "work" or a "job". Playing is not necessary, but working is.

I tried to edit, but it cut me short. I wanted to add that I did find "cut and dry" in one dictionary. I think that is added because apparently too many people don't get the true meaning that is a phrase indicating a "past tense" situation.

Having a season is a cartoon-silly pipe dream. The decision to even consider a season was strange. Did any of the university heads consult their great medical departments throughout the conference before indicating they would have a season? It doesn't appear they did. If college football takes place the virus will continue at a higher level, and we will make little progress to bring it down. We still do not have a vaccine, so until then, sports are not as important as lives.

It would be stupid to play any football until this virus situation is solved. Anything else is unthinkable. Lives are more important than wins.

The problem is it could be a stain that is unremovable. The weight of this might be too much for some or all of the coaches, the athletic department, and/or the fans. It just feels like too much of a burden for all the elements to get over.
