    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    So while it hurts us I would likely hurt the rest of the BT worse than us. The hit for OSU and Michigan would almost be twice what it is for us. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  2. How do you know he preferred his time with Archie or is that the part you are not sure about. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I guess it is not surprising. States aren’t fully open. NC is still in stage 2. The NBA bubble seems to work but you can’t really do that with large football rosters. Caution seems to be the preferred approach and liability is a huge factor for these schools. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    college sports schools have been proactively testing and then quarantining those who test positive. Probably adding in those who have been around the athlete. For regular students, schools are not proactively testing but waiting for symptoms. Proactively testing is obviously going to find a lot more cases but many of these would be asymptomatic. If this were done for the student body they could never get through a semester on campus. Even if none of the cases were serious, the number of cases would be high and kids would be in quarantine all over campus or back home. I think the symptoms based testing will allow the schools a higher probability of staying open even if it has more risk. If a school follows this approach but proactively tests sports and the result is that a large number of cases exist amongst the athletes then there will be pressure to do something-shut down.

    Still waiting to be convinced Archie is a great coach but given the protocol culture here now I am glad we have an organized coach like him vs Creans haphazard schedules. It has to help make sure kids are getting the workouts they need in. Hopefully we see some big jumps with guys like Trayce Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I don’t disagree that the media partially reacts to what their audience wants but CNNs ratings have tanked and yet they keep providing much of the same. I worked for a newspaper for 6 years and enjoyed the people greatly despite being far more conservative than most of the staff. With the Covington kids most major media ran with a story that the kids wearing the MAGA hat were racially taunting a Native American. CNN and WaPo have settled and other suits are still in process. https://foxwilmington.com/headlines/abc-cbs-nbc-ignore-cnn-settlement-with-covington-student-nick-sandmann-report-says/ Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    What the media does is vilify before facts are in. Get the story first, even if you don’t have everything confirmed. It is a ratings business. The Covington kids story last year was a good example. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Interesting potential here with club soccer. We usually play in the winter/spring. If fall HS is cancelled the club may fill that void with some additional practice and games. My daughter made one the top teams and they have been active the last few weeks. Masks worn to and from the field. High End physical play during the game then back to masks. Who we play may be limited by how other clubs can manage. Sent from my iPad using BtownBanners

    That seems high unless the covidactnow site has built that in. It has been showing Indiana at between 15% and 25% for a few weeks now. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Anyone see a similar graphic for the Florida ICU bed usage by day? Florida is apparently out of ICU beds but from this update on the CDC page only about 20-25% of those are being used by Covid patients. I know this last update was a few days ago but I am curious if the high ICU utilization was like here where most of that was non Covid related. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
