Don't underestimate how devastating, financially, not playing the season would be to all of these athletic departments. How many scholarships at UF alone are in jeopardy if there isn't a season? Several hundred? The hotels and other local businesses that depend on football games are going to take a hit, no way around that, but ADs know if they don't play any football the future of their departments becomes jeopardized.
I have no idea how its going to work, it seems inevitable that most teams are going to have clusters of cases. But I tend to believe there's too much at stake to not play at all.
I don't see how there won't be collegiate sports in the fall. If there are no sports, how can you justify reopening college campuses? People really think college students are going to socially distance and not party it up in dorms rooms, etc.???
Have to start somewhere. Positive tests are inevitable as society opens back up. Sports is just a part of the reopening.
At this point, I just want it played. I can suffer the games on the 65” TV for a season.
Want it yes but things are not looking good right now -
(Clemson 25 positives)
I see a spring football season possibly. Strange, but might happen.
We all need to be cheering for team AstraZeneca and team Moderna.
NYU has a sports program?
While your point is well taken, they actually have more DI Final Four appearances than many SEC programs in basketball.
Thats irrelevant given their current sports situation.
BCRX. Galidesivir. At least my shares hope so. Lol
My point; will any D1 conference be allowed to open if there are any that cannot? How about D1 but not D2? Will it be all or nothing?
I would think D1 and D2 would be treated independently. If a P5 conference or UCF doesnt open, then nobody will.
You don’t say.... I believe I acknowledged that.
Im 54, no health problems, work out regularly, had this mess back in January. This was before we had any testing and most thought it was an upper respiratory flu. I got blasted and called a liar by another poster for revealing that too.
Regardless, I tested for the anti-bodies last month and tested positive, although they said there was room for error in the test.
Felt like crap the first day, gradually started feeling better each after the first day but carried around a lingering fever four days. I never had a fever for four days in my life.
The worst part was that hacking dry cough with no congestion that started the third day and I had that about 4 days until it sort of stopped quickly.
At the time I just stayed home for about 7 or 8 days and took cold and flu meds because I thought I had that and didn't want to get anyone else sick.
Thing is that the general recovery time is about two weeks for almost 99%.
Most cases here in Florida in the uptick of cases are asymptomatic, and anyway, the governor said over two months ago that spikes would happen in opening up, due mainly to testing being so easily available everywhere now.
That said, yes, we'll have the season, and just like I said almost three months ago, once stuff opens up, people are going to be far more concerned about getting their lives started again and will not worry about the risk. I said they'd get sick of their lives being shut down and they did.
It's a 99% recovery rate, and you're either going to get sick or youre not.
Amazing how no one was even talking about Covid two weeks ago.
Personally I don't believe the shut down should have gone over 30 days at the most, and that this revitalization of the covid crisis is mostly media hype.
Lets move on with our lives people.
Per the artical, they were asymptomatic.
I read an Italian researcher thought the virus was beginning to weaken and might die out on its own. How cool would that be? E' molto bene, non e' vero? Momma mia.
The Italians also said they weren't going to change the way they lived their lives when the virus originally kicked in. That strateegery worked a ton by the way!
One can only hope. I'm more concerned about coaches getting sick then players. But I'm worried we might not have a season. That would really blow.
Here's to a season happening. And a glorious one at that!
I think the season will be played with limited fans in attendance. 25% capacity. AKA, a normal season for UM.
If this is correct, Sunday, June 21, the U.S. had the lowest daily Covid death toll since March, but according to the msm, it's about to be the second coming of the plague.
I think most folks are willing to just take their chances.
I’m really curious about the range of effects on college aged athletes. Any reports to the degree it impacts them? I think, for their age it’s similar to a (severe?) case of the flu.
a program doesn’t want the flu to raise havoc on their team, so isolate etc.
I would think, for fans, if you are vulnerable or older: don’t attend. 6’ separation should be followed for families / roommates, etc. wear a mask when not in your seat / traversing the concourses. open the stadium Extra early so people can avoid crowds at the gates.
