    I can remember the 1988 Kansas team that won the N.C. had a kid that walked on from the football team after the football season was over... I believe because of some injuries, he ended up playing significant minutes by the end of the year and in the title game. Clint Normore, or something like that.... I think he was DB. And also UNC went to the final four with Ronald Curry (QB) and Julius Peppers (DE) on the team. I'm sure there have been others, but those came to mind from some of the basketball "blue bloods". Impressive athletes for sure.
    Quinn Buckner was another one.

    Agreed, yet despite all the facts some people think these measures are an overreaction.

    Curry was a QB in college and, IMO, a better PG on the basketball team. He got some run in the NFL at WR. Peppers was so raw on the basketball court, but a superior athlete. And 6’7” 250lbs, so he was able to more than hold his own on the court. Charlie Ward from Florida State, won the heisman and then was undrafted and played many years in the NBA. Big difference is all of those guys were originally on both teams. Nebraska had to pull those two onto the team this week. Well, and Nebraska sucked all year and those other teams were good :)
    I knew that Curry went there to play both... I wasn't sure about Peppers, as to whether or not he walked on as a need or it was in the works from the beginning. It's pretty phenomenal in those programs to be good enough to not just be on the team, but to play. Mizzou had Justin Gage that walked on to the basketball team and played his last 3 years... he was a QB that switched to WR, then had some run in the NFL with the Bears and Titans. I hadn't followed Nebraska at all, but yeah that's rough when you don't have a choice but to dip into the Football player pool. I kind of remembered that being the case with the KU kid... There may have been 2 of them that walked on, just so they could practice, but he ended up having a role.

    Northwest has a couple of receivers that could play and probably be pretty good with Ben breathing down their necks. Eli Dowis and Latroy Harper were both highlight real guys in high school... I was a little surprised Eli chose football. I guess there's probably guys at every school like that.... way beyond anything I ever resembled as an athlete. lol

    I felt the same thing that it was over blown, however, google infectious disease expert Michael Osterholm and he explains it in more detail in about 15 minutes on you tube. Very informative but kind of scary.

    As I put in the General Discussion but will put it here too:

    No it's not. Please look at the growth rate of those who contracted the virus in other countries, namely Italy. That is what is trying to be prevented. This kind of thinking is what has already made it worse than it needed to be in the U.S. and will make it worse without action.
