2 month college football and 2 month college basketball in the Spring

Details worked out depending on health, vaccines etc. in Mid Fall

The nuclear alternative is all organized athletics pauses until the fall of 2021

If students return to campus, we'll be playing football in the Fall.

Data is proving what reality looks like compared to what is force fed by the media.

What's going to happen when a player or coach tests positive for COVID? Do you isolate the entire team? Forfeit the next week? This season might happen, but it is going to be a logistical nightmare.

You test players and coaches every day before they enter the facility for a game or practice. If they test positive they aren't allowed in; no need to isolate anyone. Players are expected to be responsible, practice social distancing, and positive tests are treated the same as a sprained ankle.

I think the teams have to defer to medical advice and experts in infectious disease. If this is a virus which can lay dormant and spread before testing positive, then a positive test probably requires shutting the team down like it did the Jazz.

If the tests detect the virus early in the infection, while present in the body but dormant, or otherwise before it can spread to others, then isolating the individual only is probably responsible enough.

And if a coach or student is symptomatic and tests positive — the disease itself can last weeks, even when it infects the young and healthy. My 28 year old nephew and his friends were symptomatic for 3+
Weeks. They all recovered, but it was three weeks of symptoms—such as diminished sense of smell.

Really? You would make the choice of whether to buy basketball tix or not based on NCAA penalties? Well, I suppose that it takes all kinds....

The Tigers have not been to the NCAA tourney in quite a number of years now, but I've enjoyed every basketball game that I have attended during that stretch. I think that making the tournament has been a long shot for quite a few of those years. To each his own, though.

Absolutely I would. That’s a chunk of change and 20 trips from one corner of Shelby County to the other, parking, etc for a team with nothing to play for. All of those teams that didn’t make it were disappointing, but they should’ve been good enough in this league to make it. We didn’t renew tickets for year 2 of the Tubby debacle. That’s probably the one Tiger team that wasn’t good enough on paper. JMO

But I’m sure the NCAA will screw this up just like they do everything else

RE: Memphis Football:Memphis 2020 Ticket and Donation Updates
Watching the NFL draft live in living rooms all across the country, as I saw Tua's very nice home in Alabama, I was wondering...Did they get any help with that move from Hawaii? That setup and move looks like it might have cost a bit more than $11,500. But I'm sure the NCAA investigated and it was all clean.

Listening to these guys on 92.9 talking about Greg Doyle’s article and I might be football only ticket holder for a while. That NCAA process is gonna like getting a prostate exam and root canal at the same time. I’d imagine they will put the hammer to Memphis basketball

I went ahead and stroked the check for my football tickets Friday. Hope the season plays out, but if not, I'm sure something good will come of purchasing our tickets regardless.

Not even sure every day testing is necessary. Limit contacts through the week with normal curfews that are in place all season anyway, and with whatever distancing policies the universities come up with. The weekend is the exposure risk, test on Sunday/Monday as you enter the new week, and on Friday/Saturday heading into games.

And as we begin to get more data on these antibodies, it might not even be necessary to retest those with previous exposure.

Forfeit would only be necessary if infection rate hit a certain benchmark - which is unlikely following these conditions. We played a basketball game this year with 2 out of 11 guys out with stomach flu. 18% absenteeism is equivalent to ~15 football players. Some flu seasons, I've seen bb teams play with 8 guys healthy.

You are dreaming. These guys sweating and breathing heavy and having a bunch of line collisions is an incredibly high risk exposure. The testing isn’t great and people might be infectious before a test turns positive. The season isn’t happening until there’s a vaccine and neither is there going to be a crowd until there’s one. Sorry to break it to you.

You're not breaking anything to me. I know many Gloomers who are saying the same thing. I don't think you are correct.

We will see.
