By God we'll play football come hell or high water!!!!


With football starting up over the last couple of weeks...wonder if the nice flat and downward

spiraling graphs of successful corona avoidance programs will start going the other direction...

Both in the college and pro teams....


But he also said this season will be unpredictable when it comes to handling COVID.

Nothing unpredictable about it coach...You mask, You social distance...rules that work..


The latest college football game to be postponed because of a coronavirus outbreak has to leave the Kansas State Wildcats feeling uneasy today.

Arkansas State announced Tuesday that its home opener against Central Arkansas will not be played as originally scheduled Saturday because the Red Wolves are unable to assemble a complete two-deep depth chart for the game.

K-State played Arkansas State over the weekend at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, with the Red Wolves winning 35-31. Both teams dealt with COVID-19 absences in that game, as Arkansas State was down nearly 10 starters and K-State was without approximately two dozen players. But both sides had enough active personnel to play.

Things have apparently gotten worse for Arkansas State since Saturday. Could a coronavirus outbreak on Arkansas State’s football team make it difficult for K-State to play its next game against Oklahoma on Sept. 26?

Earlier this week, K-State coach Chris Klieman said he expected to get several players back over the next two weeks. But he also said this season will be unpredictable when it comes to handling COVID.

1. We are watching college age football players being exposed to Covid and

giving them a high % some serious health risk-both short and long-term. God help us.

4. It wont help anything, but

I am refusing to watch ANY college football this year. They (the coaches and college presidents) are putting lives at stake for dollars.

2. Our local school district is not having classes, but the sports program is going on as usual.

Apparently playing HS football is more important than classes.

3. The GREAT GOD FOOTBALL must be appeased.

So the players mean nothing. The only thing important is the fans. The players are there for their pleasure. There will always be more players. If some drop out there are others waiting. Have to keep the fans happy. How fun.

5. Ohio State recently checked the hearts of their...

... previously infected athletes who had mild or no clear symptoms.

https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/college-athletes-experienced-heart-damage-after-covid-19-study-67929


When they imaged the hearts of more than two dozen of Ohio State University players using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), they found evidence of myocarditis in 15 percent, while a further 30 percent had cellular damage or swelling that could not be linked definitively to the condition.


Those percentages might make a Republican exclaim, "So what? That can happen with any viral infection!"

Well, here's what. It's not very common at all!

While myocarditis is a rare condition—affecting roughly 22 out of every 100,000 people each year—it is nevertheless a recognized cause of death among professional athletes, even in the absence of previous heart trouble. A 2015 study found that among NCAA athletes who died of a sudden cardiac event, 10 percent experienced myocarditis, and a Myocarditis Foundation report found that the condition causes 75 deaths per year in athletes between the ages of 13 and 25.
