SBC will ban required athletic events on election day
No games or practices allowed. Was requested by athletes and unanimously approved by the Presidents/AD's

This applies to all federal elections.

Thank goodness. I was afraid they wouldn’t be able to vote early, on their lunch breaks, or absentee like a normal human who goes to work every Election Day.

One less day of prep for the one Sun Belt team that's had our number more than any other lately (unless the conference games get scrambled).

Maybe college athletics ain’t your thing if that miffes you. Normally they are fully scheduled from 6am to 7pm so they’ve got 30 minutes allocated for supper to go vote before reporting to study hall which coincides with the 30 minutes left before polls close in Arkansas. Polls close 30 minutes earlier in A
Alabama, Georgia and Texas.

Supposedly employers in Arkansas are supposed to allow an extra 30 minute break to vote but college football players aren’t employees and counting class time typically book 11 to 13 hours of the player’s day vs the 8:30 for people with jobs.

Beyond all that the NCAA mandates players be given one day off big hairy deal to move that day to Thursday one week every two years. So spoiled and entitled to get a day off 03-yawn

Don’t you think parents with kids are booked from 6 AM to 7 PM too?

For example. Yesterday I was up at 6. In the car line by 7. Home by 7:45. Got ready for work. At work at 8:30. Left work at 12:15 for a haircut. Back to work at 12:50. Left work at 5:00. Picked up kid at 5:20. Home by 5:45. Wife needed me to take her to meet someone on an errand. Left at 5:50. Got back home at 6:30.

That sounds oddly similar to a college football players day, except I did mine while driving 35 miles or so in between as well.

The only reason it’s an issue this year is the same reason basketball quit for two days. There is this level of self importance they have given themselves that is not matched by the outside world.

Normal people just work it in to their day. But college athletes need 8 hours free to make sure they get to the polls. Lol ok.

How hard is it to grasp you control your schedule more than players?

I’m sorry you are so offended about players getting their day off moved.

I am just glad they get to vote. I hope the schools make sure each player has help registering to vote and a lift to the polls if they need it. Then I hope they publicize it and pay themselves on the back for it too.

The vast majority of college students don’t change their residency, so unless they are from that city, or nearby, they aren’t going to vote that day, and would have needed to already have done an absentee ballot.

It doesn't bother me one way or the other. Players get one day off a week already, so they'll just get that day off instead of another. -

It’s not the moving of a day off. It’s the continued charade using sports for something it isn’t.
