    The radio broadcast said students were congregating outside Wally Wade to watch the BC game on the scoreboard. It's safer to space them out in Wally Wade, but students didn't exactly physically distance for the ND game from what I saw on TV.

    The bottom line: if you want to see Duke football in person this year, buy tickets for the GT game over Thanksgiving. I don't see NCSU tickets for the general public, and I don't see fans getting into the FSU game after the students leave. The proposed Duke basketball bubble runs the same weekend.

    I agree. Dukeís CoVid test results to date have been very good compared to so many other schools. The students seem to be behaving, and the protocols for random testing, pool testing, and precautionary quarantines seem to be working so far. They are about halfway there, and if they can make it to Thanksgiving without a major cluster, it would be a major accomplishment. I canít see the school risking a set-back.

    finals and the end of the semester will be before thanksgiving, so not only is it a major accomplishment, but it constitutes success.
    It's being reported that due to coronavirus fears, Harvard has asked students not to return from spring break, and for classes to be held online.

    Not to be outdone, UNC told students to stop coming to class 27 years ago under Dean Smith.

    Well, exactly. That’s what I meant. Halfway there.

    Notre Dame "postpones" this week's game against Wake Forest. 7 ND football players have tested positive for Covid-19 (hopefully, none of them came in close contact with Duke players).
