What's new
  • In addition to the game day thread we will also have live chat during the Buffs UCLA game. Consider it the 2020 version of a tailgate. This is normally a club member only feature but will be open to all registered users this weekend.

Have to wonder how many ASU players were asymptomatic spreaders at the time they played USC.

This thing might get really ugly fast.

If Oregon State's outbreak is worse, it'll be Cal.

Let's get contingency plans (especially with an outbreak at ASU and something happening in Corvallis) ready for next Saturday early next week.

There’s not much evidence that players contract it on the field of play. Even the storming of the field in South Bend has resulted in no player positives to this point

Yeah, but let's use our brains on this one. No masks, heavy breathing, close proximity. What environment could be more conducive to spreading it quickly? If players are asymptomatic positive carriers, they're going to spread it on the field. Let's hope all the testing they do regularly means that no one is playing with it. The South Bend issue, however, is a whole different idiotic story. It would be hard to fathom there wasn't some spreading going on there.

You don’t just automatically contract a virus just because you’re around someone that has it or were breathed on.

Maybe we would NOT be spiking if areas of the country that are as dumb as SEC mud listened to Trump handled it better earlier on?
What evidence to you have to support this claim? Do you really think opening beaches in Florida in May has any impact on covid in Colorado, California, or Oregon in November?

Common sense. Study the data, I'm not interested in doing your homework for you. But yes, infection rates (in Florida in October) absolutely have an impact on covid in Colorado, California and Oregon. Absolutely. 40-some percent of our population listen to the lies spewed by the Mango Manchurian here. Common sense.

Yes, I think lackadaisical protocols in tourist hubs lead to increased case rates in the places those tourists return to.

Edit: this is from March, but here’s the evidence you requested.

As long as we have cars and airplanes and trucks with passengers going from state to state what happens in other states impacts Colorado.

Look at the results of the rally in Sturgus. One study linked a potential 260,000 cases to the rally but that number has since been shown to probably be a gross over calculation.

What we don know is that within a couple weeks of the rally ending we had hundreds of confirmed cases in multiple states with at least one death. Since then who knows how many more have been infected in the chain that leads directly to one week in South Dakota.

As long as the R rate of the the disease is over 1.0 (and all indications are that right now that number is significantly higher and rising) any spreader event in one state has potential consequences for other states as well.

Unfortunately simply being out of the house in some states seems to be participating in a spreader event as significant parts of the population refuses to take simple precautions to protect others.

Read the post. I said Florida in May, not Florida in October. Or do you consider "earlier on" as in October, a month after the 2020 FBS season started? No need to reply, thanks for keeping politics out of the football forums.
