      The 8 players tested positive in early July, and are out of quarantine now. UCLA confirmed Wednesday it doesn’t have any student-athletes in quarantine.

        Just saw that Chip Kelly and his wife had it in March.  Wow.  Glad they’re OK.

          99% of people that get it are ok. So yes I am glad they’re ok as well, but it’s not a surprise at all. And if people like Larry Scott and Chip Kelly can get it and be totally fine, then these college football players can definitely get it and have 0 complications or problems.

            Or they could be the 1 perfect and die. Nobody wants to play 99/1 Russian roulette.

            If they survived then someone else should be fine is very poor logic

              Who wants to be the one in whatever number dies in an auto accident this year as well?  More importantly, I wish we had better data on the covid deaths.  In Utah, they say 43% of the deaths come from assisted living but the daily report looks to be much greater than 50%.  In addition, many people are infirmed and very fragile but are cared for at home due to money or a spouse who insists on doing so.  Some of these folks can be younger than you think.  More still, have specific health issues that greatly increase risk even though they work.  I wish we could look at numbers for the class of individual each of us is in to determine our risks.  I sense that active, relatively healthy have a much better risk factor than 1% and may approach the risk of many other issues that we accept like the common flu.

              I get that we can pass covid on to high risk individuals.  The firewall should be between the general population and the high risk individuals as opposed to between every two individuals in the general population.  It’s kind of a risk management principal, protect the risk points much more than all points in a population.  We don’t use one-size-fits-all approaches for other risks.

              For young people, it is far less than 1%. It is comparable to the risks of dieing from seasonal flu (for kids, the risk of dieing from the seasonal flu is greater than covid). And for young HEALTHY people (non obese, no serious pre-existing conditions), the risk is essentially 0 (not actually zero, but so close that it is statistically irrelevant).

              I now expect someone to say, “but it is relevant for the person that dies.” Well, yes, but we all take risks FAR greater every day. If people are scared to die, I have news for you, you will die. Life requires evaluating risks and making smart choices. Young people are more likely to die from depression related effects of isolation (i.e., suicide) than covid.

                Problem in this country if administrators say “football is on” and then if any one person or fan dies of COVID connected to the football team playing then they will be sued.  No administrator wants to be sued.

              Omg, shut it down! Who wants to be that .003%??? Can we please have some common sense about this virus and stop the fear mongering. We have to accept that people will die from it and that there is little we can do to stop it unless we want to hunker down for forever. It’s not going away, it will always be out there and we need to accept that it will be a risk. Once we hit herd immunity it will slow down and life will get closer normal. But if we keep shutting down and wearing masks we’ll have to do indefinitely if there isn’t a decent vaccine.
