I don't get it. Why would the game NOT be played? Is there some kind of rule that if the ranked team is disadvantaged we have to cancel? 

if a certain percentage of a team is sitting due to positive tests, the game will be postponed/cancelled.

Nebraska needs to be prepared for anything. Also- if UW does have to play a 4th or 5th string guy, I'm not putting an asterisk on anything. Nobody cared that we started Andrew Bunch when we lost to Troy in Frost's first year, nobody cared when we had to play Vedral last year against Indiana. Or Ryker Fyfe or Ron Kellogg III etc etc etc. Go play the game. Their defense is still elite and their OL will provide a stiff challenge for our offense. We better be prepared for an even more physical game than this past week. 

 

Great take.  I'll be honest, I won't be AS jazzed if we beat a Wiscy with 4th QB but a win is a win is a win is a win.

Ok so apparently I missed the memo - are there rules in place to decide if the game will happen? Is it a minimum # of players testing positive?

It's a percentage of players and staff. I want to say one of the 1620 The Zone shows said it worked out it 5-7 players for Nebraska's situation.

7.5% of the population puts them in the red category. They also have to go red on percent positive of total tests administered (5%) for it to definitely to be cancelled. It's a little more unclear what happens when one indicator is red and the other is orange.

 

My math says it would have to be 10 to 12 players minimum to trip the 7.5% population line. AFAIK simply being out of quarterbacks isn't enough to cancel anything.

i believe it is 5% of the players and coaches......and 7.5% of the local population.   wisconsin is a covid hotspot so they are probably close if not over the 7.5% already.

 

edit to add.   JJ typed faster then i did.   lol.

Wisconsin wouldn't even be practicing if they had too many positive tests. 

 

That may change as the week progresses, but for now we'll have a game.

Exactly. Once they hit red on both indicators they're done practicing and playing games.

I don't think that is local population but rather population of the team.

 

7.5% is confirmed positive players. The 5% is of all tests administered. I think....

It's a f#¢ked up year. We'll take any win we can get. Nobody is going to discount or asterisk anything for us.

Just do it like we do in 5th and 6th grade football.  If too many kids get hurt we just threw them a kid or two so we could all just play.  Where is the Monte Cristo of the bunch.  He can be the Wisky QB?  The other players just have to tell them what to do every play!  :D
