Are we playing Football this year?
I hate to say it but we may not play football this. I know it’s still a ways off but we are still getting new cases of covid19 every day. California is talking about no sports, no concerts or other similar gatherings until 2021.
The thought of that really hurts

I think the NFL will try and then once a player tests positive after a game, they’ll shut it down. I think college will attempt a season early spring.

Flu seems to be as deadly if not deadlier than the coronavirus in California. Right now, their mortality rate for Coronavirus is .002% Morbidity rate is . 07%
Didn't check the ages but it would seem that risk for athletes would be very low.

UT is still pushing season tix with a free GB replica if you buy in April. I was going to jump on that offer til I noticed it wasn’t full scale.

I already purchased my usual four season tickets. But this is not looking good. We may not even have a vaccine this year. I’m 68 and feel great. But I have just been diagnosed with COPD. Doctor says I should be fine. I don’t smoke and my heart is strong. But people need to stay in quarantine until the all clear is given.

I doubt if there will be an all clear. It will be level of risks we're willing to accept. Please take care with
the COPD. Hopefully you'll be able to get out some and enjoy some good Spring weather.

What are the UT color codes? I may have to paint my own players.

RE: Are we playing Football this year?
Pro sports by mid to late summer without fans is possible, but that also means no large gatherings of any type are permitted, hence no college classes, no students (including student-athletes) allowed on campus or in dorms = no college fall sports; those are the likely scenarios right now, but decision on any of that is not likely until June. And all its takes is for one state to extend some version of stay at home order that restricts large gatherings into the fall, and there will be no CFB anywhere in the US.

RE: Are we playing Football this year?
The sailors of the USS Theodore Roosevelt: as of Thursday, 655 sailors had tested positive among 4,574 examined — more than 14 percent. One Roosevelt sailor with covid-19 died on Tuesday, marking the first fatality in the active-duty military during the pandemic. He was identified as Chief Petty Officer Charles Robert Thacker Jr., 41.

Six more sailors are hospitalized, including one in intensive care, the Navy said. Thousands of others are quarantined in hotel rooms under guard, with food that is often cold delivered a couple of times per day. Of the 655 sailors testing positive, 60% are not displaying any symptoms but could spread the virus if not quarantined.

It is those that have the virus but show zero symptoms, largely younger folks, that endanger large chunks of other citizens.

Until testing is ramped up significantly, made widely available to provide meaningful data, and a vaccine is developed, I seriously doubt mass gatherings will occur. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst and err on the side of safety.

RE: Are we playing Football this year?
For an entire military who generally work in close quarters, one death is quite remarkable. Lucky so far. I agree, hope for the best, prepare for the worst and err on the side of safety. But there will be a day, reliable test or no, vaccine or no vaccine society will just say, take our chances. People don't live to not live. I imagine a slow roll-out to keep medical facitlies from straining capacity but eventually, we will roll out.

Thanks Boca. When weather allows I walk four miles a day. And my closes neighbors are a quarter mile away. But really don’t want to miss our Rocket football

Comprehensive testing results and relative data collection could and should be underway now to enable better decision making and provide us with useful information. There will be a day indeed. I suggest Nov. 3rd.

Society and individuals may well decide that, but the Governor and State Health Department can put stop to any large gatherings, so as much as people may be willing to make their own choices about whether to take the risk, unless we have comprehensive testing capacity (likely months away), concerts and sporting events in Ohio are not going to happen plus 1000s of students will not be on campus and if no students=no college football or BB this fall. They will not be available even for those who would choose to attend.

That slow roll-out will be dictated by the law. Even if no vaccine, no test ever is developed, the current situation will not be socially sustainable. There will be anarchy.

The point of "flattening the curve" wasnt to protect everyingone in perpetuity, it wasn't to make us captive rats. It was to slowly roll out exposure so that the medical capacity could sustain. Lifewise, there will need to be a roll-out to a new normal, worst case.

Would hope the anarchy talk will be tamped down in favor of applying creativity to finding solutions; Battelle Engineering of Ohio finding a way to sanitize N-95 masks, heretofore not thought possible. Or the 99 year old Brit who has raised some $25 million for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday on April 30. Each lap is 82 ft and he does need the use of a walker. Or the 13 year old boy in BC who has created ear guards with his 3-D printer he received for his birthday. The ear guard secures face masks securely to the head without gaps. Orders are pouring in. Looks we can figure out how to create our future normal. Gathering and ranting are not advancing progress.

Neither are those who would inhibit discussion and exchange of ideas. This is how better solutions are made and less, "ooh in hindsight we'd have been better if we had thought of...."

That's how anarchy is avoided, by giving people voice.
