    Can't wait to see the statements and lawsuits from players, coaches and parents when a team shuts down for going over the 5% positivity rate threshold. Ryan Day just won't be able to figure out what to tell his players when he's asked why they're shut down but Oklahoma gets to keep playing with half a roster.

    Kevin Warren, whatever you think of him, doesn't owe any parent a phone call. He isn't their 4th grade teacher. He has more important things to do. If you want answers, speak to OSU's admin and coaches.

    Yeah, I mean I'm not gonna sit here and say this fiasco was handled perfectly by anyone. But if they expect Warren to have them on speed dial then I don't know what the fuck to tell them.

    The 21-day waiting period and 5% positivity rate for shut down seem like the presidents' way of washing their hands of it and putting it all on the coaches who have been crushing them in the media for the last five weeks. There's really no other reason to go through the trouble of starting the season with those protocols in place when there's overwhelming evidence from around the country that this is going to be a mess.

    Unfortunately for them, they're too dumb to realize that they're going to get blamed anyway for putting those in place because people just want to watch football and coaches are too connected with media to have any blame stick to them.

    So if a team has 5 positives, how long is the team shut down for? The 3 weeks that the players have to be out? The shutdown stops games and practice right?

    i can't really wrap my brain around any of the teams being able to complete 8 games in 8 weeks with the guidelines set

    even just from a you also have to have your opponent not get shut down too

    are the covid cases in all the college towns really low right now? students already back on campus? not paying close attention to big 10 world admittedly

    AbeFroman You touch me, I yell RAT!

    Yes indeed. If they play 100% of their schedule:

    Clemson
    12 total, 11 conference

    Alabama
    11 total, 11 conference

    OSU
    9 total, 9 conference

    On one side of the argument a delay creates a competitive advantage with 2 less conference opponents and on the other, they operate without a bye week. On one hand the Big12 has been downgraded in past votes because they played one less game than other conferences
    and on the other they've factored in key players missing a game due to injuries in the past so they should do so with entire games due to a pandemic.

    There, I saved everyone a few hours of having to listen to sports commentators playing verbal tennis.

    I can't wrap my head around anything right now. I spent a solid week trying to understand Myocarditis (one of my best friends died of Marfan Syndrome so heart stuff has always been oddly fascinating) and gave up after reading so many conflicting reports from 20 different people with MD after their names. I felt like a 5-year old trying to learn organic chemistry.

    That's assuming teams will be honest about their counts. I'm skeptical that level of TRANSPARENCY is attainable.

    the closest i've come on this is, its a by product of the illness yes, may not be any higher incidence than your average infections, but due to how infectious and uncontrolled covid is your pool is much bigger than your average infections thus more people are going to end up with it

    but with huge degrees of uncertainty all around

    What? Just a blogger equating a college sports season he had no part in doing anything in to a war where thousands died and a military operation to kill a terrorist.

    Totally normal and not grandiose in any way. He just loves America and all three of those are equal.

    That's not on the team to determine. All tests results should be going through a lab that reports to the school/conference, not the football program.*

    *All based on my first hand experience and talking to others in college football.

    The lab reports directly to the conference? So the conference is keeping tabs on case numbers for each program? Honestly asking, I've never seen a clear explanation.

    From how it's been explained to me, at least on game weeks, one lab is used for all teams. So all samples are sent to same lab, tested, and results are sent to schools and conference.

    She isn’t wrong. The B1G is a rapey conference with bad leadership.

    I mainly feel bad for all of the rape victims - man, woman, child, and animal. Yes, all of those were victims of B1G employees.
