COVID-19 sucks man. For the last weeks I’ve been ranking 6 college football programs that at some point should return to glory. Instead these teams have been average at best. 2 of these 6 teams however, had games cancelled due to COVID-19 this week. And it’s a friendly reminder that until things are back to normal, we will deal with this in society and in collegiate sports.
6. Nebraska- Loss to Illinois
Is this rock bottom? It could be pretty close. But the Scott Frost era has not gone according to plan for Nebraska.

5. Tennessee – Loss to Auburn
Not that I expected Tennessee to defeat Auburn. But man, it feels like the Vols are are just as far as Nebraska from returning to conference champions. 5 straight double digit losses for Tennesee and that’s the first time since 1891. Yikes.
If this score holds, it will be 5 straight losses for Tennessee football by double digits.
That's never happened in the history of their program dating back to 1891.

4. Michigan- Beat to Rutgers in 3OT
If Michigan didn’t beat Rutgers tonight, I fully expected Mutinty on Twitter from Michigan fans. But alas, it took three overtimes but Michigan won.
Alright, everybody check off ‘Jim Harbaugh celebrating Rutgers missing a field goal in overtime to keep his job alive’ off of your 2020 bingo card.

3. Texas- COVID Postponed

2. USC- Defeated Utah
This game feels like a game USC would usually lose in the past few years under Chase Helton. Instead, a dominating perforamnce at Utah cemented USC as the second best team in the PAC-12 behind Oregon and the team to beat in the PAC-12 South.
Usc is the better organized team tonight. No question.
Still think Coach helton is wasting the amount of sheer talent that the USC brand brings in.

1. Miami- COVID Posponed
Once again.. COVID sucks man.
I have tested positive for COVID-19. I am currently in isolation and feeling good overall. I will continue to work with our team virtually as we prepare for our next game at Wake Forest.
