I don't think anyone really knows yet. Based on what I know we will gradually open society back up when we start to see our cases drop day by day. A projection from the Institute of Health Metrics suggests that we are already at the peak here in Ohio and the number of cases will drop from here day to day. Once we start to open things back up, epidemiologists and other public health officials will monitor the number of cases to see if they are growing again. If the cases continue to stay at a low rate or eventually drop to 0 then that would suggest that enough people have built up immunity naturally from contracting the virus and then recovering. This is a concept called herd immunity. We don't know for sure yet if this concept applies with this particular virus but it would be great news for those wanting to return to normal life if it does. If we start to see another surge of cases after opening up parts of society then that would suggest that this concept doesn't apply to this virus and we could possibly see another round of shutdowns until a vaccine or some kind of effective treatment is available.
Here is the link to the projection from the IHME
What is the obsession with having a certain amount of Ohio kids on the team? Who cares where they are from if they are talented enough to keep up with the high standards of OSU.
The delusion at Mgo is still alive and well.

Here's my take.
It's disappointing that he's not a 4* player, wish he was rated higher. I of course believe in recruiting rankings overall. It's not the end of the 2021 recruiting class, however.
I believe Don Brown is changing the defense. It will be much more of a 3 man line, with more space players. That explains the huge number of safety types Michigan took last year, along with the lack of true DTs, and the surplus of SDEs.
With that type of defense, I think they need a thick MLB who can take on OL. So that position becomes less of a Devin Bush type, more of a Desmond Morgan type thumper. The trade off is another Viper or maybe more nickel elsewhere on the field.
Think Clemson, who had exactly this player this year in James Skalski.
And they are also turning on each other! (response to Bodogblog)

LOL at this horrible post. Don Brown isn't changing shit. He didn't even play Uche more than 50% of the snaps this year and that was despite having zero functioning DT's. UM took three safeties last year because one they need them and two when they play nickel they want a safety covering the slot not a nickel corner.
The only thing that explains the lack of DT is a recruiting staff that is disorganized and one who can't land big time players in the middle. Can't wait until 240 lb Kris Jenkins is big enough to play big ten football in 4 years. I mean Christ.
And to think they need a thumper at Mike like undrafted Desmond Morgan after watching Cam McGrone and Devin Bush who can run sideline to sideline is just fucking asinine.
You know nothing about football and thinking this kid is going to turn into anything other than a tackling dummy here is just flat out laughable.
I am of the mindset that anything about TTUN is directly OSU related. I highy recommend going over to MGoblog. It's very very depressing (funny for us OSU fans). It seems that the majority over there are starting to accept reality but there's still a few delusional "trust the coaches" type guys over there.
I'll say it. The same people complaining about the transfer portal being used by OSU are the same old people that think the Rose Bowl is still the grand prize. Times have changed and the game has changed. Either adjust or get left behind. Day has shown that he only uses the transfer portal for positions of great need.
It must be a very fluid situation because the last number I saw for the average incubation was 10 days. That was about 3 days ago though.
Yeah I would love to know how that is going to be possible. If that happens then people won't be able to work and then if the do close down businesses then they better cancel mortgages and all other bills as well.
That's not true. The incubation period is 1-14 days. Regardless, 14 days is a long time to carry something without knowing.
I think he meant 9% of people confirmed to have COVID 19 are critically ill. Not 9% of total population.
It's important to have perspective. It's not because the virus is that bad. It's because a lot of people are coming down with the virus all at one time which is overwhelming their healthcare systems. Resources being spread too thin is the reason for the high death rate over there. That's why everything in the US is closing down so that the spread slows down and not everyone gets sick at the same time. Hospitals are already at high capacity due to flu season (happens every year). Add on top of that another flu like illness with roughly the same impact and you can overwhelm a hospital real quick causing some to be left without care who really need it.
These are facts. I am a registered medical professional and I specialize in pulmonary abnormalities. It's my job to know this stuff and because of all the panic I feel obligated to spread the facts. The only way that it is worse is that the incubation period seems to be longer than it is with the flu. The flu is about 1-4 days so you have about 4 days to expose people without even knowing about it. This virus is about 10 days on average so you have a longer period of time to expose people without knowing. That's why some sources will say it's more contagious. Otherwise, it is spread through tiny droplets from coughing or sneezing. If you are within 3-6 feet of someone with the virus you have been exposed which is the same as the flu. None of this changes the fact that all you need to do is wash your hands and cover your cough. There's no reason to panic and cut yourself off from the rest of the world or stock up on supplies. If you are sick stay home. If the virus becomes communicable (most likely will) and you contract the virus then you will likely suffer mild symptoms and will be diagnosed and immediately discharged to home.
The degree of contagion seems to be similar to the flu. It is transmitted in the same fashion.
Yes it's contagious. Just like any other virus out there. Wash your hands.
Keep in mind you said government which is contributing to the mass hysteria. The incubation period is thought to be around 1-14 days with the average being around 10 days so yes your'e right about not knowing that you may be carrying the virus but again hand washing and covering your cough should have you covered. These are things people should be doing anyways.
