Friday’s new items [losers and do-overs; no place like home for the holidays & more] – 11/27/2020

If they had “do-over” | Betcha’ Penn State, Michigan and other Big Ten powers would take a “do-over” on this football season if they could. Here’s a comment from a September 16 article when the caring presidents, athletic directors, coaches and rabid fans had a change of mind and decided to have a season after they’d earlier decided to not play football: 

“Big Ten/University Presidents: ….”our focus has been on the safety of our student atheletes”….. Couple months later, accountants tell the university presidents: “we’re looking at $100-150 million in lost revenue if the men dont play football” Next day, University presidents, ” it’s safe, whats break even point? Accountants: 8 game schedule will get us close”
