    It appears high school football will remain a spring sport as the pandemic continues. Gov. J.B. Pritzker said Friday that he has not been talking with the Illinois High School Association about moving football up to this fall, but it is the state public health officials who made the call, not him. “It is doctors and epidemiologists that are leading the way here,” Pritzker said. “It is what I have done all along in this pandemic. I think it’s one of the reasons we have one of the lowest positivity rates in the Midwest.” Illinois High School Association executive director Craig Anderson sent the governor’s office a letter requesting permission to allow the IHSA to govern its...

    The new AP Top 25 has LSU and Oklahoma bottoming out while Ohio State is back in the mix with Clemson and Alabama atop the college football rankings. This week, the AP Top 25 reintroduced members of the Big Ten, a move that is a perfect illustration of what the AP Top 25 Poll is. After Saturday, there are 29 undefeated teams, a whole four more than the 25 necessary to fill out a Top 25 poll. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t one-loss teams that should be in the Top 25. No. 6 Ohio State (previously excluded from rankings, which is technically unranked but not really unranked because 2020 is a funhouse mirror on a tilt-a-whirl) Ohio State is probably...
