    23 clemson football players/staff test positive for COVID-19

    https://www.si.com/college/2020/06/1...tests-positive

    I realize I could have bundled this into an existing thread but the magnitude is so stunning I thought it deserved its own thread, at least for awhile

    This doesn't bode well for the likelihood of sports returning on schedule.

    This breaking news definitely deserves its own thread. My optimism for a 2020 college football season is very low.

    I am not surprised this happened somewhere. I am a bit surprised it happened so soon. I was expecting things to percolate for awhile before a serious outbreak on a team was found.

    Also, Clemson is a bit close, just down the road from Greenville county which is itself percolating right along.

    Playing football before enough people have achieved some immunity has always struck me as magical thinking. It will be very interesting to watch how this plays out.

    Our kids are still young, but we are not close to getting them back to in-person sports with large teams.

    From the SI article:

    The athletic department said most of the total cases have been asymptomatic.

    Is this really a game changer, or season changing event?

    Two points.

    1.Most isn't all.

    2.Asymptomatic players can transmit this to coaches, staff, professors and officials, who might not be able to so easily shrug this off.

    115 players listed on Clemson roster -- 20 percent.

    As a society we should be able to develop a system to quarantine high risk individuals and permit those with low to no risk to continue normal life. But we are not that intelligent.

    It is not a matter of intelligence, but rather one of logistics and cooperation. It is, on its face, a lot more difficult than you seem to think it is, and it would require a large percentage of the people to agree to live and act in a certain way, which, as we have seen, is like herding cats.

    A positive way of looking at is that all 23 maybe well and immune from further corona virus attacks by middle of July and ready to play and probably not transmitting the virus by that time.

    UNC has the solution. They have announced that they will not be releasing ANY information about positive tests.

    Schools will contort themselves to rationalize playing, because they're addicted to the TV money. I fear science takes a back seat on this one.
