I'm not advocating putting dollar values on lives, but it happens every day on virtually every place on the planet.
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

The only person this college football season isn’t for, is Mangino and that former Minnesota coach who was somehow part of K-State for a minute and I know this is a real thing, but come on....

Maybe Urban Meyer too, if he’s done faking illnesses (I kid) to transfer to superior programs before the crap hits the fan (again).

I didn't read the article but I'd be more concerned with how many non-football players die as a result of a season and full-blown semester for all students.

No athlete that we know of has died from it. Doesn’t mean I’m saying we shouldn’t be concerned from it, but do we hide in bunkers at this point? It’s definitely here. Cancel the season? Because most athletes have been asymptotic!

Jerry Kill is now sweaty gary's OC. Jerry Kill is the most overrated coach in football history, however, luckily epilepsy doesn't lead to a compromised immune system.

I don't get why playing football and having only online classes is even a worry.   Tons of athletes pretending to be students only take online classes (where somebody else does the work) as it stands now.   

In addition, there's a growing body of evidence that transmission in outdoor settings is very rare. 

Controlled environment of football team surrounded by medical staff.   At least some % of capacity in the stadium.   Just not gonna be able to have that Ahearn Steak Fry and people in the WSC are gonna have to mask up and social distance, hang out in their suite or box area only and not just walk around all over the place.   

If the dimwits would have masked up 8 weeks ago, we'd probably be LOL'ing about all of this by now.

Worth noting that with younger people getting sick, the numbers of younger people dying will go way up. Not all of these football players are in tip top shape, especially given they've been home for 3 months. Here's the story of a triathlete nearly dying, I'm guessing the number of college football players who can run a triathlon is incredibly low.

Look at this article, we weren't even a month into distancing when this article was published. This was back when the worldwide average for age of death from coronavirus was literally 78.

I guess what I'm saying is I think the data we have about deaths of younger people will need to be revisited as the average age of contraction dives sharply.

I believe this was addressed when all spring sports were cancelled.

As for the appropriate academic environment for sports to begin, Emmert said: “College athletes are college students, and you can’t have college sports if you don’t have college (campuses) open and having students on them. You don’t want to ever put student-athletes at greater risk than the rest of the student body.”

In Division I, he said, “all of the commissioners and every president that I’ve talked to is in clear agreement: If you don’t have students on campus, you don’t have student-athletes on campus.

“That doesn’t mean it has to be up and running in the full normal model, but you’ve got to treat the health and well-being of the athletes at least as much as the regular students. So if a school doesn’t reopen, then they’re not going to be playing sports. It’s really that simple.”

Maybe they've changed their tune after a couple months.

We talk about deaths almost exclusively, but it sounds like there is some potential for long term respiratory problems even for people who recover.  If there is any validity to that it certainly calls into question the  "just get it now" idea.

when children get RSV as infants it messes with them for the entire time they are growing up. whenever they get a cough it's much worse and barky and they are susceptible to worse breathing issues from other viruses and infections. Is it like that or is it just like you can't breath as good all the time?

I've read the latter, diminished lung capacity, but I think it was mainly speaking towards those that had more severe symptoms. Obvi at this point we can't really know long term health implications. Also stuff about heart and possibly neurological as well.

Limited info available.  No one is really "long-term" on a new disease yet, but it sounds like it is likely going to affect more severe cases, as one would expect.

They may have to change their tune and also Emmert is forever going to have to battle the modern day perceptions of the student athlete experience . . . and that starts with the billion dollar plus, private jet owning enterprise known as the NCAA.

i'm not saying i know the reward of playing college football outweighs the risk of it but i'm always amazed how many football players complain about being a football player in college but spent their entire life and most of their parent's income working their tails off and sacrificing so much to be a college football player. only to bitch about it after they attain their hard earned goal. if it was so bad why are millions of kids doing everything possible for so many years to continue to try to be something that sucks so bad? why dont the current players tell the high school kids how bad it is so they won't have to be miserable either?

If there's not a vaccine or some cure, college students at campus will be a disaster.  With these kids sucking and rough ridin' everything in sight, the college and town will be a bunch of sick puppies.

i think the idea that there might be a college football season without on campus classes is completely delusional and i think having a normal semester with students on campus would put faculty, staff and townies at much increased risk.

far more worried about 20k students in mhk from august-december than 100 college football players, no matter what those players are asked to do.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

fwiw, a lot of the doctors, epidemiologists and virologists i follow have been dunking all over that study.  or at least the way it has been reported in the popular media.
