Get a hit everytime, guess we're obsessed with COVID? My sister sent that to me.

Will be interesting HockeyNight to see what percentage of students and their families decide to attend school in person, versus the stay-at-home remote learning option.

Whatdaya reckon, do you think it'll approach >50% go to on-campus learning?

That could be a great sportsbook bet in and of itself!  

Over/under on how many students attend on campus at the U of Michigan this season?

Hard to say at this point, classes don’t start for another 2 months. A lot of things can still change between now and then including treatments. 

Dorm residences obviously are a concern, but Michigan as a whole has a really good handle on the virus right now, cases are not widespread here.

 

Another thing to consider is the effect Covid has on the college aged people.  Per CDC, persons aged 15-24 accounted for 11,000 deaths in the US between Feb 1- June 17.  125 of those were Covid related.  Not a high risk age group.  Most kids don’t take this seriously anyway, so I’d say well above 50% will return to campus for classes in August.

I don't see College football this year but I think the NFL is a go ahead.

Rationale for having a season is simple.  Rationale for not having a season is simple & understandable.

 

when we’ll know for sure is literally when they kick off the season.

Updated guess with current spike 

College plays full season  0.01 %

College football plays reduced season  1.2%

NFL PLAYS FULL SEASON.  1.7%

NFL PLAYS REDUCED SEASON AND SB.  4.1 %

DoubleUp4Life...and all the Others that have Posted...Respect you all...an_worshipcool

Have Missed this place over the last 4 plus months...Been doing without Ball for so long I forgot about getting my Steele Mag until today...UNREAL..usually have to ordered months ago..LOST Time....IMO:

NFL...will play some type of season this year because they A) Get Paid to play and that's their Job..B) NFL is needed to get USA going with Money flow from Companies with Commercials..from Ads in stands (To help people distancing) and Bobblehead like nights.. C) also the Big time Sports Betting that has been on Vacation...

College...This could become Tricky and have a lessor chance to Happen...Mom and Pop are not going to be happy sending JR half way across the USA away from home to an area that the Virus is at a higher amount...Not the same and the Reasons WHY NFL will play is weighed heavy by the first thing..Their Job that is being Paid to do....

 

Now I hope we have something...cause I feel Rusty as Hades...My Wife is about to Strangle Me...I have worked everyday Since Feb 14th..6 days a week (120 plus days) now to protect my girls here at Pharmacy from bringing in a Relief Pharmacy from another area...NEED some Ball....Everyone Be Safe...God Bless and God Speed.......Thor24

I think we'll have a college football season, but with reduced out of conference play. Or OOC games will be shifted to later in the season.

 

Much easier to control who is in contact with the team from Ohio St to Michigan, less so Ohio St and Oregon.

 

I think you'll see universities expand or even mandate online options. UGA I believe has already stated they will shut down after Thanksgiving and go back to online only for the last week of school. Makes sense.... everyone will be visiting different folks during that week off.

 

With the NBA, MLS about to kick off and MLB not far behind, I think the NFL and CFB will have a decent blueprint for how to go forward. Football can't use the "bubble" technique like the NBA or MLS but they could certainly restrict to conference play only pretty safely.
