    No, according to worldometer these are the last 4 days in Texas:

    5/29: 1336
    5/28: 1669
    5/27: 1377
    5/26: 1051

    I'd guess that's the highest 4 day total we've had. I know early on Texas was relatively low in the case standings, but we've been zooming up the board the last few weeks. Numbers have definitely gotten higher, and from what I've seen here in Austin, with people going out, will continue to do so.

    Nope, not at all. You tell a guy to stick to sports because it doesn’t fit your narrative, while you retweet everything another sports writer tweets because it does. I fully comprehend your hypocrisy.

    The better statistic is the rolling 7 day average because reports on weekends tend to be lower.

    Your anecdotal family story is just charming, and your bravado is impressive. What is the lethal contagion factor of automobile accidents, that friends, family, and neighbors might have to deal with? The family of a deceased two yr. old in my Fl. county would argue very successfully that young people do have something to worry about with Covid-19. BTW in Florida, many, many people do take precautions for lightening. There was a death in NE FL yesterday. Easy to be a keyboard macho man.

    So that family was the 1 in a million. That sucks. Doesn’t make me any less worried about sending my son out to play basevall whatsoever.

    It’s not “keyboard macho man”, it’s using data to come to conclusions. Try it sometime. Some people won’t admit they are wrong.

    Not at all. You’ve yet to make a coherent thought that I have seen. You attack who says something but not the data because it’s true. Go back to your doomsday fortress and hunker down and be safe.

    What does that have to do with my post? My reading comprehension was just fine.

    I wasn’t directing that at you. That was at another poster. My bad.

    It’s hard to know what this means for the disease itself, but I think I read that a metric that suggests that a state is testing at a good level is when the positives fall below 10%. So indeed, your data suggest that our testing is coming up to par, which is good.

    I appreciate those who use data to come to conclusions, but I think your treatment of risk is a faulty even if seeming valid.

    When it comes to infectious disease spread, those young/low risk are still central to the the equation because they can easily be the reason high risk get sick and die, because this virus spreads among humans.

    ...a virus, it's worth reminding, in which we have no immunity or vaccines to protect us.

    We are talking about football players playing football again. It’s not like they will be around a lot of potentially susceptible people at UF for example. Coaches I’m sure will have protocols to follow. When I was at UF the only time I saw anyone really old was at a store or maybe the occasional professor on campus. The discussion I was having was about the efficacy of putting on football games in the fal. I fully expect that to happen by the way.

    Interesting that these facts did not get a response. Wonder why.

    I find your comment intentionally naive pot-stirring. Of course athletes interact with students and students interact with the community.

    If you desire to play the contrarian, please find a more nuanced position.
