I studied public health years ago, its not my primary field and I don't have all the specifics on CV19,

But the "spanish flu" pandemic in the early 1900s is something I studied in depth.

One stat I remember, is that the city of St. Louis was proactive, cancelled school before the disease peaked, and kept them closed for around 6 months.  THe city of Pittsburgh waited until peak incidence then closed schools for a month or two.  In the aftermath, Pittsburgh had 3x the death rate per capita as St. Louis.  So I agree with erring on the side of caution. That's what this is. THere are points to both sides, and it's not 100% clear that it's the right decision. But choiced to err on side of caution or err on side that you regret later, as much as I was looking forward to the tourney, I think it was the right call.

thats not right though, it wont be gone in a month. you cant quarantine forever. all this move does is soften the peak of incidence (which isnt bad, but), i have read that it has an incubation period that is weeks long.  Not saying I wouldnt make the same decision if I was in their place, but let's not exaggerate the benefit of the decision.

Actually, I really like thsi idea from your first paragraph. Have specific criteria to qualify for the playoffs

Can't help your in conference games, but for OOC have specific rules, regarding FCS, P5, quantity, possibly opponent rankings, etc.

Meet those criteria and you can qualify.

To me, 6, 8, or 12 would all be great

The thing is going to be the logistics of the games, schedule, stadiums, etc

What would probably happen is take over more bowl games.

Possibly some home field advantage rule, but still a logistics nightmare because of short notice to host a game

But there's no question Clemson develops their talent, UM not so much....

I dont have the stats but its misleading to compare recruiting ranking, instead compare NFL draft rankings

How many 1st rounders, etc.
