“The report that we will announce Monday that we are cancelling fall sports is 100% inaccurate,” said McClelland.

Yes, cancellation is 100% inaccurate. However, postponing the season may be a more accurate description.

RE: SWAC Cancels fall sports.
So UAB has openings in week 2, week 3(was Miami), and, possible week1 if New Mexico St decides not to travel all the way to Birmingham. Should be able to fill, though, w/SunBelt(Troy and Ga State have openings) & others...if CUSA plays. Could also schedule H&H in same season with, say, South Alabama...

RE: SWAC Cancels fall sports.
If you want the first 3 weeks to look close to the current scheduled 3 weeks you could try this.

Week 1. Home game against Ball St. Their game against Maine is cancelled.

Week 2. If you are looking for another FCS school for week 2 that is within driving distance call Tennessee Tech (244 miles). Their game with Minnesota was cancelled.

Week 3. Face it, no real money games this year. Travel to ECU and get a little cash. Their game at South Carolina will be cancelled.

Except the travel is the problem with teams not wanting to travel more than 3-4 hrs - by bus.

Sometimes I wonder if this is a schtick, just to rile the board, but apparently not.

I will tell you what Ive encountered. I live in the suburbs of a modest sized city 4 hrs north of birmingham. Our county has had remarkably low virus rates and until last week I only knew of one person among our circle of acquaintaces that had it. A mid 40s female. Mild case in february but well over a month afterwards to recover.

But virus rates begin to elevate here in June, substantially.

In just the past 2 weeks Ive talked to or heard of acquaintances with 8 cases. One a mid 40s male with no known extra risk factors. Collapsed in the emergency room, seven days on a ventilator, tried to remove him had to go an eight day. Still can barely walk once home. May have permanent damage.

One a family of four with two teenagers, just learned today they had it in june after talking to the dad. Recovered but not yet near normal a month later.

Another, a mid 40s healthy female, in ICU for past 3 days, had to put her on a ventilator today. Not sure she is going to make it.

Two more tonight, one 17 and one 20, brothers. Both seriously ill and may hospitalize tomorrow.

My brother in law is a manager within a major hospital network in north Alabama. They are briefing daily on growing covid patients in all ICUs, and a major issue is these patients having high tendency to code, with many also experiencing signs of major organ damage.

Im a scientist at a major lab. Not a health scientist. We had only 2 cases in our staff of thousands through May. We had over 25 in June.

If one doesn't believe this virus is real, and far from the normal flu, then he or she is simply a moron - or completely brain washed and blinded to reality.

And no one who knows me will ever accuse me of trusting the media or having any interest in psycho-liberal or rabid-conservative agendas. I despise both CNN and Fox, as agenda driven political tools operating to create two different flavors of politicsl fools, neither honest media.

But this covid threat is real, regardless of how it fits your political narrative.

I'm not an expert in text analysis, but I have a very strong hunch this is an alt.account for another poster here.

I strongly resemble those remarks. One of my sons best friends (22 and a UAB student) caught covid and had a pretty high fever for 14 straight days. He's better now but still not 100% a month after the fever stopped. If you aren't one of the lucky asymptomatic carriers, this thing is Rough.

I wear my mask and it's not because of altruism. I want to not catch that **** for as long as freaking possible. If the mask reduces that probability even 10-20%, I'm wearing it.

Me too! I also practice social distancing when I get out which is not very often these days.

RE: SWAC Cancels fall sports.
We wear our masks in all public enclosed places ( we take them off to eat in restaurants but wear em till the food arrives). What really gets me is to see someone wearing a mask but only covering their mouth.. I guess they dont realize that breathing through their nose brings the outside stuff into their lungs the same way it does for us mouth breathers and also spreads the same to others.
