    .06 of the population is 60 percent of the cases. FYI continue to ignore the Scandinavian countries and Holland that are living with the virus and operating almost as usual. Death Rates are down and the moronic states that put Covid patients into nursing homes are no longer doing that. It is what it is no college football, no college hockey. It's a shame. That's not political.

    Why the sudden shift to cancel football? Was there some new medical information available in the past week that they didn't have when posting schedules one week ago? These student athletes, who have worked their entire lives for this, now have their seasons whisked away. If the fear is really for their well being, they'd be better off on the football field and following a team safety protocol rather than joining the rest of the college community for alternative 'activities' on weekends! The mental health impact will far surpass the potential impact of some positive COVID cases.

    Shhh it's a secret .. it does not fit the narrative.

    Trying to have a discussion with pod people is a waste of your time.

    The fact that the St Louis Cardinals have only managed to play five of their 18 (?) scheduled games (and counting) is not "my narrative"; it is the fact.

    The fact that the NBA and NHL are doing well in their bubbles says very little with regard to college football, or college hockey, or any other college sport. The 'model' more closely matching what college athletics would be trying is MLB, and they are most decidedly not "chugging along".

    Hockey and basketball, maybe (because of the "bubble" their players are living in). For baseball that's pretty debatable. St Louis is the case-in-point for the kind of thing everyone expected and still expect would happen, with games cancelled and teams being sidelined for long stretches, making schedules and standings something of a joke, etc etc.

    (And it is much easier to make profession athletes spend their lives in such a 'bubble' in exchange for the $$ they receive. And even at that, MLB couldn't convince their players to go for such a 'bubble'.)

    Yea, if football is gone no way other fall sports will be played. I'm very afraid of the impact to winter and spring sports; I can't see winter sports being played either. To be a real pessimist what worries me the most now is how many sports survive. No football revenue will put a major hurt on all athletic departments. Is Stanford's cuts just the beginning?

    I don't doubt that the above is accurate. The tone on the radio has changed in the last five days and that tone has to be coming from somewhere. Meanwhile, pro baseball, hockey and basketball are chugging along.

    Milwaukee Journal reporting that Big Ten will cancel football and fall sports within the next day or two.

    The article, written by their LONG time UW football writer, bounces back and forth between 'football' and 'fall sports' but I can't imagine they would shut down football and not the others.
