Is it crazy to see that CFB in Florida is not going to happen?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone want to tell me what the IFR% and hospitalization ratio for an 18-22 year old is for the virus?  My guess is we will still have a season...that being said, I do think we shouldn't have fans or have a very small amount of fans attend the games...

Never happened so who knows but if I had to guess I would say they retain it if they did not play, seems only fair.

NCAA , Power 5 status, and  the world fair never belong together.

You may not care, but this kid can't be the only one who does. And the professor's math makes this a little bit icky. 3-7 deaths this year? That means 3-7 athletic departments are going to get absolutely annihilated in the court room for telling an athlete they either play or lose their scholarship.

Now, keep in mind, @puc86 says not a single NCAA athlete is going to die this year. So those are the ends of the projection spectrum. 

The IFR that person is using is too high...it is in the same range as someone dying of an automobile accident...also assuming that rate of infection holds true as well...I would frankly be suprised if a player dies of this...

I think finally we all agree, shut it down, too much politics and sports mixed together would make this year a disaster.  Let’s try again in 2021 or not, the athletes this year don’t seem to have the resolve and it would be less about sports and more about other stuff.  We play in 2021 or not, either way all is good.

Would you bet the entire USF athletics budget for the next ... however many years? Because if USF makes an athlete take the field and they die, we are going to get epically sued. There is literally no amount of money a jury won't award a family when they go into court and explain that their son/daughter was told play your sport or else.

The data supports what I stated prior..the universities are referencing the same data I am and they are moving forward...so I would say yes...

That being said if a player does not want to play I wouldn't force them to...I would not force them into the decision...

I say eliminate the risk and end all sports, if we don’t play than nobody ever dies until of course we do.  We have made this too divisive, let’s stop keeping score and celebrate our preeminence, Go Bulls!

Why would they make someone?
