INDEPENDENCE VILLAGE 22, Why why on Earth would post such a thing?!!? Are you threatening this man's life?

That's an irresponsible, goddamn thing to post. Shame on you!

How many guys declaring "I read it!" does it take, before one (1) actually cites what he read?

That's a great summary. +1.

In Dirty Harry, Clint Eastwood said, "The law's crazy." It may be: It certainly can be confounding and maddening.

So, however remote the possibility may be, I won't be surprised if some lawyer finds some way to legalize the college bubble.

Maybe, the solution lies within academics itself  - somewhere between student-athletes and a university's medical, public health, law and science departments. In short, can a university's mission to educate and conduct research harnessed to the challenges of this pandemic, legally justify a bubble?

Buckeroo...you're not breaking anything. 

Like too many, you see the value 0.04 and stop thinking.

Keep thinking and you will recognize the risk of some terrible, post-COVID-19 complications, let alone the drain upon the healthcare system, posed by this pernicious virus. 

Keep thinking and you will realize, half of a college football roster is comprised of linemen.

Consider the average BMI data for NFL linemen:

NT 40.50
DT 38.22
G 38.05
T 36.73
C 36.72
DE 33.83

Keep thinking and you will discover college football linemen qualify as obese, per CDC guidelines:

People of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19:

http://Obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 30 or higher)


This means, almost half of those on a college football roster are "at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19."
