Vrabel and Patricia were hired the same year. People think of Mike as being from the belichick tree but he never coached for him. One guy looks like a great coach and the other is a joke.
Let's assume he stayed at Ohio State. He gets to play pretty much 40% of the snaps in 2019 because we were so dominant and there would have been tons of mop-up games. Also, Fields takes less of a pounding throughout the year (his knee was definitely not fine in the playoff game). In hindsight, he probably would have been better off staying.
I'm fine with 21 days. My guess is there was some negotiation behind the scenes to get schools like nerdwestern on board. It gives the appearance of being extra cautious. Also they had to pick between 2 weeks or 3.
Also some of you guys are really grumpy.
Good news. Uma Thurman's agent just called. She wants to go on a date with you. It just has to be in des moines.
What the hell, des moines? Forget it man. This is bullshit
If you mean the antigen test is followed by a pcr, the. That is almost certainly true.
Watching the nfl yesterday and my conclusion is that trubisky and minshew might be better than baker mayfield and it makes me sad.
Yeah, I have no idea what the long term effects are and I did not comment on stopping sports. My concern is that there will be long term effects of this disease both real and imagined.
Postponing the season is decision for schools, presidents, and public health experts. I take care of individuals and while I have an understanding of public health and epidemiology my opinions about to play or not to play are limited because I don't have access to the same data that the presidents do. As a regular user of this site I am just as disappointed as most of you.
Also, as opposed to Sars and mers, covid-19 has an r value between 0.8 and 1.5. that means that while it isn't as deadly overall as the others it is much more contagious.
There is a condition that is currently being diagnosed called chronic lyme disease. Most of us doctors hate it because the patients that suffer also have migraines, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue. They're the patients that suffer and find someone who can give an answer for all of their problems. They just need to take antibiotics for a year.
I am worried that months and years from now we will be dealing with COVID related everything and we will have a hard time figuring out what is real and what isn't.
Also, if I was still a student at Ohio State and got sent home so the football team could play I would be PISSED.
There's a study from the Lancet medical journal. With mitigation strategies in place in australia the risk of transmission in a school setting is 1.2%. the elementary and middle schools may be successful.
Didn't they beat michigan in basketball a couple years back?
FYI, other than Ohio State college football has been a disaster for the B1G and PAC for 15 years.
For those of you planning to drive to chicago tomorrow to stand in a parking lot I am pretty sure Kevin Warren is working from home. You can tell based on his zoom calls.
But if you want to go protest an empty building you do you.
Not gonna comment on politics but rbf is not a bad thing.
It's really hard to tell with our inability for good contact tracing and the relative youth and health of the students involved. You have to look at hospitalizations and deaths over the next 1-3 weeks.
This is a waste of time and energy. They don't care what the fans think.
Kevin warren is a bad messenger but can we leave his son out of this?
He's a man trying to make it on his own and is not responsible for the decisions of his father.
An 8 week regular season plus playoffs in a bubble? You know what college athletes like to do in their free time, right?
I think all of us are dreaming about something like this but the problem is there is no central organizing structure for college football so who would set this up, who would assume the risk if they have to shut it down, and how do you justify their amateur status.
Also, the sec and acc would rather dream about playing most of a season vs playing a one and done tournament.
Last thing, in 2002 we were outside the top 25 and won the whole thing.
Brien Kelly frequently goes past red to purple.
When it comes to covid response I'll hitch my wagon to the conference where nebraska is "the slowest brother" and northwestern is the smartest.
I think the long game is the key here. In the B1G we will do what it takes to keep our players healthy. Some things are actually more important than football.
There have been 10 cases of covid related myocarditis in B1G athletes. Besides feeling like you have been whacked in the chest with a hammer, it can cause permanent heart failure.
But yeah the universities are just trying to piss off fans.
We talk about how the B1G and PAC are superior academically which I generally believe to be true, but when we listen to the educated and cancel football everyone loses their shit.
I'm a doctor. Most good ones are trained to NOT overstep our area of expertise.
I get that stuff. The issue here is college admins and presidents care about mitigation of risk. Most of them have a legal background. If a student makes the decision to go to a party and gets sick you can't blame the university. If a college football player gets sick, has heart inflammation, and can't pursue a professional career they could be held liable.
It's not just about playing on the field. Football involves locker rooms, plane trips, bus rides. It also involves young men who will probably go to parties and have relations. I just can't see how they pull it off. I want football too but I can read the room.
