    Every bad thing can happen to the IOC and it wouldn't be justice for the org that perfected pro sports corruption.

    I feel slightly sorry for the athletes who lose their one window of opportunity to participate in the Games because they're postponed or cancelled. This is mostly pretty much theoretical because I don't actually know of any athletes who are in this predicament — but I'm sure some are.

    A sign of Chinese weakness on Xi Dada's watch? Not a chance in hell. Those Games are going ahead even if the government has to "hire" all those wayward Uygurs to carry snow down from the Himalayas.

    UPDATE: Another Big Sky school, Northern Colorado, has opted out of the spring football season.

    And the NAIA's Frontier Conference is reducing its spring games from 7 to 4, with a later start date (March 20 instead of Feb. 27).

    The Southland is a dead conference walking. Central Arkansas is leaving for the Atlantic Sun this fall. Tarleton State, which moved to FCS, completely blew off the SLC and joined the WAC along with SFA, SHSU, Abilene Christian and Lamar.

    At what point does FCS football in the spring become victim to Libruhl Cancel Culture?

    Not a voice I’d pay much attention to. If you care about burdens placed unfairly on college women, you can’t take a paycheck from Baylor, which ran a sexual assault ring with the approval of its president, a hypocrite who once defended Jeffrey Epstein.

    None of which had anything to do with Mulkey.
