  1. Knapp, that was pretty offensive to those stuck in wheelchairs. My wife spent a long time in one and it was a heck of a lot bigger deal than wearing a mask. We all get your point though...You feel very strongly about it and are frustrated that everyone isn't listening. Vegas has progressed to betting on actual attendance. I like the odds still that we at least play some form of a season. https://www.si.com/college/bostoncollege/football/vegas-odds-college-football-attendance-covid19-2020-season
  2. It is a hot take. Covid-19 will be solved by herd immunity. How we reach that herd immunity remains to be seen. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/herd-immunity-and-coronavirus/art-20486808 I won't wear a mask forever and neither will most of the free world. Equating that to a handicap is pretty rude to those that are in that position by the way. It would be the end of the world as we know it on this forum - pretty hard to play a sport or do anything very physical with your airway blocked. For what it's worth, I'm in no way against a person wearing a mask temporarily when there is sound medical reasoning behind it.
  3. Are you suggesting that herd immunity isn't the solution? Your a proponent of wearing a mask to slow the spread... forever? Or until a vaccine helps the world's population reach herd immunity?
  4. This is a hot take smh. The fact that 5% of the study group had antibodies suggests that herd immunity is absolutely achievable - they virus would just need to be more widespread or a vaccine would be needed to help the population create antibodies before it could happen.
  5. I would agree and also people's immune systems are a bit stronger during the warm months. I believe that's why death rates aren't climbing as fast as case numbers.
  6. Do you know any college athletes? I do personally know several and can say that they want to play. I know this isn't a representation of all student athletes, but based on my experiences I believe that the majority do want to play.
  7. While I don't agree with many on this thread, I do offer a genuine thank you to guys like Guy who make very intelligent arguments without demeaning anyone else. Some of us could take a lesson, including myself.
  8. I'm friends with a few non athlete Nebraska students who have recently tested positive for it. One had pink eye and no symptoms- apparently that is now a symptom? Another had a mild head ache for a couple days and then nothing. The third was tested out of caution and has had zero symptoms. According to their doctors, this is the norm with kids their age. It just doesn't have much impact on that age class. If it equates to mild to no symptoms for college age athletes, why can't they play a game? As SF said, they have just as good, if not a better, chance of catching this if they don't play.
  9. Well said landlord. As a coach I have seen this countless times through the years.
  10. Agreed, but from a scientific approach, getting a vaccine or catching Covid-19 will accomplish the same. The end result is a person with antibodies.
  11. So why is the entire world busy developing a vaccine? A vaccine is intended to speed up herd immunity. If there is no immune response, there is no chance that a vaccine can even work.
  12. I understand that everyone wants to point to something that works. I'm in that same boat. I just don't see any solution other than herd immunity. None of us wants to see people die unnecessarily but many of us also don't believe in the current strategies. I do think a mask, just about any mask, will slow this down. I however don't believe that will change the end result and I think it may cost our country more in lives, money, and world status by the time it's over. It stinks but it's here to stay. Learn to live with it just like all the other bad things we have grown accustomed to. And let those boys play football - I know they want to.
  13. https://time.com/5813628/china-coronavirus-statistics-wuhan/ I don't believe it has.
