    The reason for the sudden drop the last few days is because they stopped testing in south Florida for Isaias.

    No doubt that is true. But, the downward trend goes back to July 12th in Florida.

    yeah, I'm just saying it didn't drop from an average of about 9,500 per day to 4,000. The drop is from about 10,000 to 9,500.

    All the daily cases numbers are borderline irrelevant anyway because they are completely dependent on the number of people being tested.

    What matters is the infection rate. Was the peak really July 12, or did just a crap load of people get tested that day?

    Not sure. I do think that people that come to get tested from the general population (not healthcare workers, etc.) are generally sick with something, so, I'm not sure how much that number means either. Shouldn't a large percentage of those who feel the need to get tested because they're feeling symptoms test positive? Random test postive percentages on the street would be truly telling, but, that's probably impossible to do logistically.

    So, in short, I can hope.

    I’ll take the one that has the Gators selected as National Champs for their 4th crystal football - since UGA won their last.

    I was thinking though about how freaking hot and humid those September games are and maybe the fans wouldn't mind staying home for those and watching in the AC on TV instead.

    I haven't looked at the game times but I know many have been scheduled as late in the day as possible that time of year to help mitigate the brutal conditions.

    I am thinking about starting another poll about this poll. I am interested to see if there is any correlation to how those who answered this poll and what their political affiliations are. In the new poll, usernames will not be displayed with the answers, so no one will ever know how you voted in the poll.
