    You're third sentence is the absolute truth.  I spent little over decade in k-12, most as an AD.  Remember a volleyball coach I hired at beginning, he asked if I was to say what is the one biggest obstacle to building something great......without hesitation I said parents.  You can't do it without them, but they can easily be the biggest roadblock, especially in today's environment.

    I grew up able to see both Smith and JB...results are hard to compare head to head given different decades, but based on eye test and pure wrestling athleticism/skill/strength/etc. I'd have it:
    1A - JB
    1B - Smith

    This is 100% untrue, and highlights your ignorance. It was never said that any of the vaccinations available for COVID would make you completely immune. That is simply not how it works. If this was said, it was likely not by someone who has an actual understanding of how vaccinations work. 
    You either misunderstood something, were given/read/watched some very, very, very misleading information, or just don't have the desire to try and understand how it works.
    I am not a genius by any stretch of the imagination, if I can understand how it works anyone can. Call and ask a doctor, they can give a very detailed explanation, and maybe a history lesson on some relevant topics to help enrich your understanding.

    I’m willing to buy a University of Northwestern season ticket after this. They really do the most with the least in the B1G — Jimmy Kennedy’s a huge loss. Hoping Andrew Howe has some security at the job, too. Can only imagine how stressful it’s been.
    Iunno how y’all are okay with cutting 16 pounds every week and surviving off rice cakes and salted slices of tomato for a whole winter, but wanna be nutritionists and healthcare professionals all of a sudden. Shut up, y’all gotta keep the dumpster fire threads on the International subforum. Ffs.

    Besides donnell Washington and asa who else really? I know a lot of Indiana names have yes, but not elite or big ten ready kids imo. If iu wants to ever not be placing in the last 3 spots of big tens then landing someone like Mendez and keep developing Washington and others would be major points. Plus I really like Escobedo as a human being n coach and want him to do good.

    This post, the fake data it references and purports to summarize, and its flawed rationale and conclusions is a huge part of the problem in why we have not beaten the virus in the U.S. and solved 99% of the problem for wrestling rooms and programs.   Smart and well-meaning people who think they know better than the incredible awesome community of scientists and medical experts that have come to the rescue.  These internet vaccine questioners  - true beleives that they have better judgment in evaluatuing the safety and effectiveness than the FDA, CDC and 99.99% of the medical doctors - decide to share their facebook and google "wisdom" on social media.  All of this post and so many others like it represents false and baseless conclusions from someone with no expertise, but accomplished internet arguing skills.  Airwaves from at least two channels regularly echo this vile nonesense and have indeed created a cult certain in their own "wisdom" that they know better than the experts with lifetimes of experience (a community of our brightest and most studied and accomplished people with knowledge and analysis that the world has never seen before).  If they only harmed themselves, it would not be so bad.   But they spread their fake data and arrogant expertless conclusions like a shadow virus through social media. This sad spectable has killed many innocents, including children and elderly in their families and communities.   
    Every vaccine ever has had some risk, but there is an overwhelming amount of data that these Covid vaccines and every other one regularly adminisered in the U.S. with FDA approval is a safe and effective for over 99.9999% and is managing risk effectively for the broader community.   The FDA approval processi s rigorous and sound and we are all in good hands.  It is not a case of everyone should "do their own research" and balance the risks, because people - even reasonably smart people - do not have the training, tools, and education to make a sound judgment and analysis of the data on their own.  For the same reason, a patient requiring major surgery would not "do their own research" on how their anesthesia should be administered and how each aspect of the surgery should be undertaken.  Google and facebook are not getting us there on everyone "doing their own research" and sharing their wisdom on social media as puported experts.

    If I'm hiring a future doctor, lawyer, financial advisor, however, I'll take the Northwestern grad. over the OSU national champ. No one wants to hear that A.J. Ferrari will be performing their open heart surgery.

    Its a strange choice of a hill to die on.   From a risk management perspective, why allow a policy that could expose undergraduates participating as amateurs in a combat sport to direct personal and physical contact in a wrestling room with an unvaccinated coach in the time of a global pandemic?   These coaches are not providing instruction over zoom.

    According to reports, lots of geniuses out there are refusing the taxpayer-funded $20 vaccine.  Then, after they get sick, they are getting monoclonal antibodies — which cost taxpayers $2100 and are experimental.  These same people are already pumped full of other vaccines.

    Lmao I saw an ad for this show and it looks demonic.
    But the "pack of virtue signalers" are signaling to an existing audience. They're just doing it ham-handedly. It's also probably a generational thing. You might not have a lot of friends who believe in social justice issues because you're older, but a huge majority of people under 40 do. Most of us (at least that I know) roll our eyes at corporations virtue signaling because we see it for what it is (and also know that all of their actual political money is still going to politicians that oppose a lot of these issues), but it doesn't change the fact that they want our money and are trying to figure out how to best market to us. Just like other corporations use American flag/troop and/or blue collar imagery to market to more conservative audiences. It's not any different. You just think one thing is cooler than the other.
