Who cares about an asterisk??? It should be noted by the asterisk that the Natty was won by a team that had enough balls to play!

The panel might have said it, but that does not make it so. Who gave the talking heads the authority to decide? CNN might declare Biden the next president, but we shall see.

What would the Tigers rather have, an asterisk or a trophy? I'm betting on the trophy because we all know the B1G and Pac12 weren't going to get a chance at it.

as they should. It's basically a fall jamboree/crap shoot

Can't really crown a champ when not all teams are playing and those that do are just the ones whose best players happen to not get COVID.

It all started even with each conference and team - same coronavirus and same opportunity. "We" are the choices we make and have to live with the consequences. The conferences that opted out made their choice and are no longer part of the equation. Life goes on.

agreed on that part of it, but there's still COVID roulette.

If the stars on a good team all test positive and have to sit out two games and that team loses, doesn't that put an asterisk on whoever eventually emerges as the "champ"? They would certainly not be the best, most deserving team. Just the team with the best players who didn't test positive.

In any given year if the stars on a good team miss games due to Flu, food poisoning, or other illness and that team loses, there is no asterisk. So why would this be different? You win or lose with the players you have available to play regardless of illness, injury, or suspensions. That's why having a deep bench is so important.


right, but this is a pandemic with no treatment/vaccine

and spreading it can be greatly minimized by wearing masks, avoiding crowds, hand washing, etc. Doing things that clearly will spread it is negligence.

How do you know Justin Fields will get COVID? Is any other team in the B1G relevant? When Dexter Lawrence sat out vs Bama and ND did it stop Clemson?

Not a valid argument. Teams lose great players to injury every year. The school that fields a team can’t be measured by those who don’t show up.

Clemson’s title this year will be more valid than a bunch of Bama’s.

from battling Covid along with their tough SEC schedule. (Unless by some mere achle a Big 12 school was the opponent in the championship game, then they will think up another excuse. Can't give us credit for a straight up win, ya know.) :)

Maybe we can catch to the SEC teams with all those fake “claimed” titles from the 20s and 30s.

One interesting question is what happens if the Big 10 and Pac 12 actually do play spring football? Will they get their own Championship?

We may not even have a playoff at this point


Uh, Bama claims a championship based on the Houlgate Poll.

So I think we'll be okay.

Seriously, I don't care. If we play and make it to a championship game and win it, I don't care if it's just the ACC that plays. We showed up and took care of business, I'm claiming it. Ohio State was welcome to join the party and did not. Not our fault. Just like it wouldn't be our fault if suddenly Bama and Ohio State went on probation and had post-season bans.

As it stands now, we're playing...we offered to play SC and their conference said no. We would have gladly played a Big Ten playoff team and they said no. We brought Notre Dame into our conference. The SEC is playing. The Big 12 is playing. That works for me. They can discount it all they want, but if we win it, I'm celebrating with the team.

I would agree if the Big 10 and Pac 12 were being excluded from playing. They're choosing to opt out.


They'll have a trophy in their trophy case too.***

Asterisk for a good reason. Whoever wins it decided to play the season and ignoring calls to cancel. This season will set the all time record for distractions.

How many asterisks will nd have if they the ACC and a Natty? Would 37 be enough?

Of course they will say that but who really cares. I am sure whoever wins it will hang a banner. Some have said they wont have a playoff in this scenario but cant see that. Everyone will want all the revenue they can get.
