  • .005 percent to be exact! Penn State should order the Covid Breath Test from Israel at about $2 a test with results in minutes to stay on top of this.

      Today is the first day of classes at Penn State. They already recorded 148 new Covid-positive tests last week, so the show is just getting started. Any guesses as to how long before the students are told to pack up and go back home? I give it a month.
      I read this to mean they had 148 positives from students that were pre-tested prior to being cleared to come to campus. If these tests were conducted in "higher outbreak" areas, I don't think 148 is anything to panic over. The true test will be how they sustain over the course of the coming weeks.

      • My daughter has been there a week and has been tested 4 times. Incoming freshmen were sent a saliva test before being allowed to come to campus. Athletes are basically in a bubble. They are tested twice a week and the classes are virtual. Other than the one party at the East dorm the students are wearing masks everywhere and are taking this very seriously. When we were out there dropping her off. We were very impressed with the state regulations. if any school has a chance to be a success story about continuing to have school it seems to be Penn State. It was obvious that they have a very good plan in place for the whole student body. The citizens of the state are taking it very seriously. Pennsylvania is the example of how to do it right.

        • Notre Dame professors sent a letter yesterday saying that the school should stay the course and keep in person classes despite a brief outbreak.

          • I like to hear both the posts above. I go back to the MD at Arizona leading the way. It's extremely unfortunate that it looks like the new commish in Big Ten postponed the football season without a vote unless I missed something which is completely possible. No one else has cancelled since then. What was the hurry?

            • Agreed. Without jinxing anything, it seems like things are trending in the right direction for sports. NHL and NBA are doing fine. MLB is getting by. Massachusetts just announced that all high school sports, fall & winter can go forward. I think that is a big step. How do the colleges in Mass rationalize not playing if the high schools are playing?

              The Dolphins announced that they will have 15,000 fans at their first game.

              I agree that the some of the football conferences panicked too early and cancelled.

              • New York's Governor just declared volleyball, "contact" cheerleading, football, and ice hockey to be high risk and not cleared to be played or practiced. Soccer and field hockey (among others) were deemed OK to start September 21st.

                  He is an idiot. USA hockey cleared hockey to resume and its being played everywhere in the US and Canada. He's more concerned about waiving his 14 day quarantine rules for California celebrity democrats for the VMAs than what his citizens need. Still the league leader in dead nursing home residents by a wide margin. Follow the science until it doesn't fit your narrative.

                      According to my sources this is for youth sports and not for college.

                        What in this context is the difference between soccer and women's hockey in terms of contact? Is he being sexist in not recognizing the difference between men's and women's hockey?

                        • Penn State has announced the captains for the (maybe) 2020-21 season, and this season it's not half the team:

                            More of a real honor this way. And for those not named, they have reason to feel less disappointed.

                            • Pro football played tonight with some fans in the stand. The Big Ten is reviewing fall football. Meanwhile Penn State halted a couple of sports - not sure which ones, but it went by on a news stream. It's sure looking like a lost year for hockey.

                              • If this season ends up being a wash, does the entire roster get a redshirt? I can't help thinking of Jenna Brenneman, who is already a fifth-year senior in this "maybe" season. Has there ever been a sixth-year senior?
