Bring me football. That is all.
Well, if we could this one year toss out our schedule and schedule North Texas, Chadron State, Northwest Missouri, South Dakota, and Western Illinois, we would have a chance at going unbeaten. Although NWMS would scare me a bit.How can there be a condensed schedule? What is the point of that?
There was an early test case for how this disease spreads in regards to a team setting when Ruby Gobert of the Utah Jazz tested positive. He was about as careless as a person could be and only one other teammate tested positive. It didn't spread like crazy throughout the team. Don't know if the Jazz got lucky, or if systems are already in place with pro sports organizations to stop the spread of diseases.I stuck with full season, no fans. The MLB plan to play in Arizona without fans could be a blueprint. There are a lot of dollars at stake with TV contracts. There will be significant financial pressure to find a way to keep those dollars flowing and folks will have grown weary of the restrictions before then. I'm guessing there will be regular testing of all players, coaches and staff. It will be interesting to see how MLB handles a positive test if they go through with playing in May as I think a positive test on a team could cause havoc.
Yep, this virus is strange. The way it affects some so badly, while others barely know they are sick (if they know at all), is interesting. Also, others can be around someone who has it and not get it themselves, like the family of the guy considered Lincoln's first case of community-spread COVID-19.There was an early test case for how this disease spreads in regards to a team setting when Ruby Gobert of the Utah Jazz tested positive.

You would lose the gate and the concessions but it would be better than losing the TV money, the gate and the concessions. My institution (K-State) just nixed all face-to-face extension meetings until after July 4. I'm not sure what information was used as a basis for that decision, but it may not bode well for a football season since fall camp should start about a month after that and most extension events have fewer attendees than the number of players on a football roster. I am increasingly convinced the "without fans" options are the only ones that are likely in play if there is to be a season at all.If they played without fans, there would still be huge revenue losses for schools. Puts a lot of pressure on TV crews as well since they would still have to travel. We have a while for them to evaluate and plan. That’s a good thing.
