Honestly I expect college football to shut down before the Big 10 gets up and running again.

I hope not.  It's not like any of this is a surprise.

None of this should be surprising.

Last week, daily average new cases trended up for the first time since the mid-July peak. We got down to 35k new cases a day 12 days ago before climbing back up to 41k now. If that figure continues trending upward this week, then it will be clear we’re gearing up as a country for a third wave this fall (which was already presumed, but might now be shown in the data)

It is what it is.  The virus is going to spread.

Best to contain it as much as possible..... right? Minimize risks, save lives, and all that jazz?

Even the CDC stopped calling this BS a pandemic. Please just play the games. Leave the fear mongering to the newspapers and the networks.

And to the loved ones of the 200,000 dead Americans???

I guess, but then that's a gray area.  If someone is worried, they should have protection to work remote etc.  But do you tell people to stop playing football indefinitely?  The virus is never going away.  We seem to arbitrarily restrict some people and not others, so I say let everyone make their own decisions based on their own risk category.  

Certainly no one cared about me when I was laid off due to the lockdown (not the virus) lol.

Some of those 200,000 did not die from Covid, but tested positive with Covid.
