Yeah, because Biden wanted to do a ‘virtual’ debate, not a real one.

What a pussy.
Also - it wouldn't be the first POTUS debate done virtually.
Has there been a virtual debate since that one that Kennedy and Nixon did back in 1960?

Re: Why Do We Not Have Updated FCS Rankings?

Is this a 2021 prespring season power poll? If so, I corrected it for you. No, and you obviously don't pay attention to Hens fans. We always rank them lower than anyone else. Heck, is Andy implying there are only going to be two FCS teams in the spring? The Hens haven't won a playoff game in a deca...

No, the Commission on Presidential Debates did. Because Trump has fucking COVID. :lol: Certainly wasn't handled very well by the Commission.
