RE: Memphis needs to either field a team of unaffected players or forfeit.
No one would benefit by a Memphis forfeit.

Most fans support the schools they represent first and then other
conference members. Why? Because it reflects positively on all members.

As an example, if UH does not get the NY6 game, I hope UC or SMU does.
Multiple conference members playing in that game demonstrates strength
of the conference. You are known by your associates.

Sorry for tone.

Agree. It would have been a big negative story for the AAC if Memphis somehow had to forfeit. But being postponed, and Houston picking up a Baylor series, was good for all of us.

Tell that to ESPiN. That is inventory. In this season where there are uncertainties. rescheduling is a good thing.

(edit) I need to read these posts better. I agree.

I'm fine with postponing the game until a later date and playing Baylor this Saturday instead. COVID ain't no joke, homie! (I don't think it should be used to score political points either, but that's for another topic.)

the 18-21 crowd tend to make bad life choices.

I also remember some Memphis fans getting all in their feeling when that happened. I guess the shoe is on the other foot?

So now Arkansas State has so many cases that they can't field a 2-deep team, out of 85 on scholly, and have postponed their next game for this weekend.

Maybe that's where we got it.

If you've ever been to Jonesboro Arkansas you know it's kind of a dump. It wouldn't surprise me to have it be a hotbed of covid.

I still say that if you should have to forfeit if you're not ready to play these games. Either grab students to play or don't play at all. I'm tired of the viewpoint that these teams are supposed to be semi-pro teams only tangentially related to the student body.

For the betterment of all, the AAC is wise to schedule games as much as feasible with the premier schools (eg, Memphis, UCF , SMU) most likely to earn a NY6 slot for the AAC.

If those teams are really all that they'd be able to win with their back ups, just like 2015 UH team who beat Memphis with its 3rd string QB.

If Memphis screws the December date up too, then they need to forfeit.

Um, Memphis didn't create COVID-19. Is that a difficult concept to grasp?

HC Mike Norvell at FL. State has tested positive for Covid-19. Should FL. ST. just forfeit because their HC is coaching virtually?
