    Covid-19

    For Wisconsin I 100% suspect it's because their phenom QB caught it. If I were them, I'd want to pull as many people for contact tracing. Maybe that's not what they did, but in the other hand, why wouldn't they? A win over Nebraska gets them nothing and playing can only hurt them.

    Covid-19

    Interested to learn where you live and if you know what the infected person said about their contact with your wife. I know for certain that's not how contact tracing goes here (Nebraska) unless the infected person says you were within six feet with either party not wearing a mask. Since most...

    Covid-19

    Just checked their deaths for today (523) and that's equivalent to about 2.6k deaths here with cases still rising (deaths roughly reflect where cases were 2 to 4 weeks ago). Their rolling average of daily cases has more than doubled in the last two weeks and almost quadrupled in the last month...

    Covid-19

    As above, I'd wonder what indoor activities are allowed (bars, dining, etc) and what adherence looks like.

    Covid-19

    The situations that don't require masks likely aren't being fully factored in: bars and indoor dining, get togethers in private residences, etc. My town has been at a high plateau for about 5 weeks and our health department continues to talk about how bars, indoor dining, and indoor gatherings...

    8-Team Play-off Format.

    Plus, you can easily set it up to where all P5 champs get in or something like all P5 champs ranked in the top 10. More conference bragging rights, more national TV audiences.

    Covid-19

    Two things here, assuming I understand you right. First, we've gotten much better at treating the flu, which has been with us for hundreds if not thousands of years. There is a fairly dramatic difference in flu deaths per population if you look across the last hundred years. It also mutates...

    Covid-19

    If by live with it, you mean do almost nothing, then that's largely what I saw. On the other hand, I would say learning to live with it means accepting that masks and some distancing (limiting indoor contact, avoiding large gatherings) will be with us for several more months because the virus...

    Covid-19

    We can always hope, but you already see it. I took an 8 hour road trip recently and no exaggeration, every rural gas station where we stopped had employees not wearing masks or distancing and 80%+ customers doing the same. Somewhat better in the cities, but they all had restaurants and bars...

    Covid-19

    Pandemic fatigue doesn't just affect people in the US. It's all over. Argentina is another example.

    Covid-19

    Would be about like 200k cases here. Their deaths are also increasing and approaching our numbers, roughly equivalent to 750 deaths per day here (averaging over the last week). They will likely exceed us soon since their average deaths per day have almost doubled over the last week.

    Covid-19

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but drug with strongest evidence among hospitalized patients is dexamethasone/similar steroids. Multiple, large scale RCTs pointing to effectiveness, but only among those needing hospitalization. Right? Eli Lilley's press release had some game changing numbers, but...

    SIAP: Illingworth recognized among top true freshmen

    I get that. That's not my question. I'll rephrase. Even without the special considerations due to COVID, he could have still played in up to four games and maintained his redshirt, right?

    SIAP: Illingworth recognized among top true freshmen

    And the rules are still that they can play up to 4 games and maintain a redshirt, right?
