  • 22 states have rising Covid-19 numbers. Sunday was the single largest day of cases announced world wide. I think we need to worry about more than football in the Fall...

      I've been watching the numbers via an online counter and the US is still struggling, but the rest of the world (especially Brazil) have gotten worse in a hurry. The US has brought it's fatality rate down substantially though, which is a good thing.

          As they test more people the fatality rate will continue to fall. That’s all that needs to be considered. Infection rates don’t mean anything if people aren’t dying at crazy high rates.

            I was talking actual daily fatalities, not ratios or percentages.

            At worst, we've hit ~2,500 a day. There are a lot of dramatic peaks and valleys in the data I'm looking at, but we're down around 1,000 a day, if not lower.

            That being said, New York at it's worst was accounting for about half of the US daily totals. They've cooled down a lot, so that's also brought the nationwide daily numbers down.

            I'm not a statistician, those are just some quick observations I made.

              I think we hit our peak in Minnesota. It was looking like it was going to get pretty rough, and then they must have gotten the infrastructure under control. Some states are just now starting to see it get bad though from the info I'm looking at. Should be an interesting summer I guess.

              • Since the beginning of the quarantine, there's been about a 2-week lag in seeing rising or falling numbers, based on our activity, or lack of it. Nationwide protests started about 2 weeks ago...Let's see what happens in the next 2 weeks. Over 20 states are seeing rising numbers, many of them opened things up about 2 weeks ago...When football season comes, it will take about 2 weeks to see the effects of that. I give football season 4 weeks at best until numbers start to rise again. Football season may only last 4 weeks this year...Just an educated guess...

                • Everyone just needs to take a chill pill and relax. Do I like being sick? Absolutely not. But we do get sick. It’s life. This is NOT a life threatening illness in any sort of normal circumstances. Certainly for the young players themselves it’s a zero risk of dying proposition unless they have something very seriously wrong with them that is undiagnosed. Even then it’s highly likely they would survive. The average age of death remains over 80. The vast majority of deaths HAVE OCCURRED IN NURSING HOMES! This is 100% political. No reasonably healthy person or even unhealthy person who’s not already on deaths doorstep is in danger of dying. So please to all sports fans out there - can we please please please leave our politics out of our kids sports? Let them play. For my son I guess it wouldn’t be the end of the world. He is more than likely going to redshirt as his school pretty much redshirts all freshmen. But I know he’s just anxious to be part of the team and support his teammates. But what about the seniors? Let’s not force them into a decision to get on with their lives or delay their life and return to college for their last season of eligibility. And for Gods sake can we please just man up a little bit? Is it so politically incorrect to show just a tad bit of courage? Especially in the face of something so minuscule? If you’re a grandpa and 80 years old and want to see your grandson play take precautions and I pray for your safety. But can the rest of us just get on with our lives! If you want to hide in a cave do so. For those who want to play And watch soMe football we should be allowed to do that.

                    In Washington we had spikes 2 weeks after Mother's Day and Memorial Day both. I'd also like to note there is a county in Washington that has had 0 reported cases, but also has a population of about 2.5k in which are mainly in one town along US Highway 12 that few stop in expect for the bathrooms.

                    • We have two counties with no reported cases. Lake of the Woods and Cook (I believe). Both counties border Canada, and they have very little population. It will be interesting to see when/if they get cases.

                      My county currently only has eight, so we've been doing pretty well despite not social distancing... at all.

                          No as a matter of fact I don’t. But it’s ok for you to get personal and stereotype correct? Won’t be any blowback in that. What if I responded in kind? I didn’t address anyone personally. Just gave my viewpoint. And I unapologetically stand by it. If you have a big truck you want to give me though I would really appreciate it!

                            Hey BSUDad: It's political until someone you know or love dies from this virus. Just because you don't know anyone who has passed doesn't mean it's not real. I personally know someone who has lost 14 friends and relatives from this outbreak. Educate yourself too, Young patients make up a very small portion of the deaths, but it is still a measurable number. Treat it however you like, but don't expect everyone to follow you like a moth to a flame...

                              I thought this site might be fun. I Was wrong. I am educated. And not looking for followers. Gonna delete my account. Because dealing with morons like this ain’t my cup of tea. I just want to watch football. I will leave the political gross exaggerations to you.
