LOL - Timing is everything. I'm sure this is just what the B10 coaches wanted their presidents to be hearing today.

This quote pretty much says it all -

But it’s also clear now that the only bar for playing college football this fall was that as long as nobody dies from COVID-19, it’s fine. 

At some point , the spread will be to families... and someone WILL die, but not until bowl season is over, so who’ll give a ****? No one.sadly.

I find the sense of privilege among the coaching and athletic management establishment sort of disgusting. The conferences appear to be buying up diagnostic services that by any public interest measure would be better be deployed elsewhere. It's fair enough for private parties to conduct themselves in that fashion, but hardly appropriate at a public service institution like a State University. How many of these schools run Hospitals where those capabilities could clearly be put to more practical public health impact?

Wouldn't you think that with all the honor and character sports is supposed to be teaching these young athletes they should even be refusing to be put at the front of the line for such services?

'Sort of' disgusting?

A large percentage of these coaches only care about athletes insofar as they can deliver them on field success.  Otherwise they are just meat to them.

and of course, almost all of these coaches are men molded by all that character building available to them as undergraduates who themselves competed in intercollegiate athletics.

I prefer to view it as good prep for the job market after college.

It's how you get Penn State.  

And I think that can happen at any big football university.

What prompts people to do that?  

Well, looking at that particular clip, the guy’s looking for a hookup with the band leader, and most of the rest look like children, with a sprinkling of people who just like a good parade.

That's probably right.... doesn't necessarily mean we will be where we are now in terms of restrictions and all that but assuming best case scenario and a we see positive results in late October or early Nov from the trials... then they get reviewed... you still have to go through manufacturing, production, distribution, etc.  How many can be made per week or month?  Ideally we have 2 or 3 to choose from.  

But as I said before I think we'll see some levels of herd immunity among the high risk people by then that will mean that if we are still limiting gatherings and wearing masks that the spread will slow.... those who will get it will have gotten it.   We're at 6M cases in the US.... how many unconfirmed?  If you use the 10-1 ratio we're at 20% of the population.  

It's important for him to say that as a reality check on expectations.

And people wonder why the promises on a vaccine aren't believed coming from Trump

Attracting attention to themselves.
