    The financial pressures are likely going to make -something- happen but the legal implications of putting students in harms way just seem staggering to me.

    Professional leagues... I agree, probably something. I’m actually kinda shocked 3v3 basketball hasn’t figured out some sort of tv tournament already.

    People just have to remember college football has no competent leadership. So not sure how to be in any way optimistic.

    I don't know if 3v3 matters as far as being more likely than anything else. Hell UFC just has to worry about 1v1 and still just had a guy pull out for testing positive.

    Yeah, I was just over there. The garages and some of the surface lots are closed but there are still plenty of places to park around

    Yeah. Some of the retail on campus is still operating but its basically a ghost town.

    Anything in there about how they’ll probably keep our “donations” and just refund the “ticket value”?

    Hearing the plan is to try to bring half the team back first and see how it goes then the rest if everyone is healthy.

    I'm sorry for being a buzzkill but it's extremely irresponsible for us to have college football this year and Danny White should be working on other ways for UCF athletics to survive this year.

    Anyway you do the math it doesn't make sense.
    According to the NCAA there are 17800 student athletes playing football.

    Totally ignoring the fact that this seems more deadly to black people and men, the age fatality rate of this in your 20s is 0.2%

    If 10% of players get it, it would mean multiple players would die. Now maybe less than 10% become infected or maybe more than 10% do but these people aren't even getting paid.

    That doesn't even factor in the impact to their families, for example Karl Anthony Towns mother died of Covid-19 earlier this year. We really going to put family members at risk for football?

    Danny White trying to put fans in the stands?

    My state did an antibody test and 2% of the population had antibodies. Most didn't know they had it because they were asymptomatic. Let's say that 90% of those with antibodies were over it or had symptoms so they weren't contagious.

    That means 0.2 would be currently contagious and not know it.

    In a 45,000 seat stadium that is almost 100 people.

    There just is no safe way to do this. Again I hate to be the one to be the buzz kill but this is incredibly irresponsible and we can find a way to take the risk for players earning millions each year but I'm not going to support putting amateur athletes and their families at risk. Its insane that we would cancel in person classes but keep extracurricular sports.

    Sorry for the rant though but god damn i dont understand the plan here and seeing Danny White as a cheerleader for this is pissing me off.

    this is the biggest thing to me just as a bottom line. If it isn't safe for students to be on campus then that should be the end. Period.
