Sorry for venturing a little off topic here, but this isn’t political — meant to be informative as I expect this isn’t that uncommon in Indiana schools right now.  I was told by the head of HR in my district that typically we have a sub pool of 50 potential subs in our district to pull from.  This year we have 8.

I'll venture a little further.  Not at all surprising.  Lots of districts have the same issue with bus drivers many of whom simply didn't want the daily exposure with the kids and/or didn't want to have to have the added responsibility of playing "bad cop" and enforcing all the added health policies.  

And with that, we now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.

In my cousins school district due to the bus driver shortage any kids within 2 miles of the school can’t ride the bus. She was less than pleased

We are short in our district also. Schoolboard members are volunteering. Another district North of us is begging the community for help

It’s so embarrassing that the Big Ten threw in the towel and yet other conferences with fewer resources are already playing. at least there’s some college football to watch. 

SMU and TCU just had to cancel a game at essentially the last minute. And it’s not going to be the last cancellation. Stop pretending like these conferences have somehow proved they made the correct decision

I’m watching a Marshall football game with fans in attendance right now. Meanwhile, the Big Ten threw in the towel and didn’t even try. Will there be cancellations? Sure. The MLB has had cancellations too.  Yet they kept pushing forward. The Big Ten looks like a joke in the college sports world right now and you know that.

44 players at Tennessee currently unavailable due to either positive covid tests or contact tracing.

Yet they probably still would come back from down three scores to beat us in the fourth quarter.

Refs using electric whistles in the SMU/Texas St game.

I will say that there is work to be done there as even in a near empty stadium they are hard to hear.  But it has potential if they can get one to produce a frequency distinguishable from crowd noise.

Games this weekend so far haven’t been close at all.  On paper they didn’t appear like they would be although I held out hope that Midfle Tenn St v Army wouldn’t be a blowout.

Texas State did put up a fight against SMU.
