Smith is concerned? He’s worried? Yeah, no kidding, folks. We’re all concerned! The B1G moving to only conference games is the surest sign yet that it’s time to panic.
It’s not just time to panic, but it might also be time to start mentally preparing for the football season to not happen.
I don’t say that lightly, and I hope like hell I’m wrong. However, have any of you opened up an internet browser in the past six hours?
The sport of college football is coming apart at the seams! We went from everything being fine in May to an absolute dumpster fire by July 9.
If you have any favors with the big man upstairs, now would be the time to call them in because we need all the help we can get.
