      I  don't know about the football games actually being played but I'd be shocked to see fans in packed stadiums this coming season. I sure hope it's somewhat back to normal by August but unless this turns out to be a big nothing burger or they develope a vaccine and treatment, you won't find me rubbing elbows with 90,000 fans.

      By working to not overwhelm hospitals, morgues, crematoriums by flattening the curve, we are spreading out the disease over a longer time. 

       

      The alternative is > 1.5% of the infected, which would be somewhere around 70% of the population before herd immunity would kick in, dying along with whatever number of people die from not being able to get treated in hospitals for other health problems or emergencies because we've overrun all medical facilities and staff with coronavirus.  That's 3,433,500 dead just from the virus if they died at the rate they are now, while we still have ventilators and protective equipment left.  We wouldn't have enough for long, so you could expect that ratio of death to infected to rise significantly.

       

      Do you think life just goes back to normal if we kill off more than 5 civil war's worth of Americans in the next couple months?

       

      Worrying about not having football this fall seems a bit childish.

      Relax. There is also plenty of concern being shown about more important things. We can’t be expected to constantly be overly serious about things. It’s already quite the adjustment with the other changes society is experiencing. If you don’t want to see discussion of the possible impact on football, probably shouldn’t visit a site operated for that purpose.

  2. If I could make a request, I'd take more of the "Swimwear for large busts" ads and less of the "Will you help Trump trump the Libs?" ads.
  3. You know, the more I read and listen to the news, the closer I'm coming to the realization that we are really, truly ****ed.
  4. I mean, you can't lose 8 games if you don't play 8 games, so....
  5. "AND THAT'S A GREAT KICK FROM OLE CHIEF THUNDERFOOT! Now, while we've got a time out, let me tell you about the sweet, zesty, tangy taste of Dorothy Lynch salad dressing! It's great on salads, wings, steaks....hell, sometimes the missus let's me bring it into the bedroom! It's Nebraska's own, Dorothy Lynch!"
  6. CDC recommends gatherings of more than 50 people be banned. See ya, Spring Game.

      In all fairness the official Mizzou Covid-19 mask is being handed out at all games:

      Does 10,000 people a day in the local Walmart not count as a gathering of 50 or more somehow?

  7. It's not, though: we have very little information on how the virus reacts, and we have two examples of what to do vs. what not to do in South Korea and Italy. The goal is to prevent our healthcare system from being massively overrun, and to give them time to develop a treatment and eventually a vaccine. You do that by "flattening the bell curve", and the best way to do that is by limiting these massive social interactions. I recommend giving this a read: https://www.vox.com/2020/3/10/21171481/coronavirus-us-cases-quarantine-cancellation
  8. You aren't wrong; Twitter is already lighting him on fire.
