There is now some scientific data that even asymptotic people are hi risk..


...for future lung disease. If you get this virus, only get a little ill or not sick at all there is now data suggesting that the virus impacts the lungs in the same manner as latent risks associated with second hand smoke.

9/11 that very day about 2,900 people perished. On a walk forward basis there were over 1,000 additional deaths from lung disease with 9/11 causality proven.

This will be no different save it will be on a much larger scale. It is reckless to put student athletes at risk in the fall, full stop. The safety and soundness of these young men & women, regardless of sport & regardless of football revenue, should not be brokered. And yet, here we are. It isn’t a debate. There can’t be football or other NCAA sports in the fall (absent an unforeseen miracle therapy). We can be realists & conclude that now or be fools to place young people at a risk which will lead to bad outcomes which will dictate cancelling the fall NCAA seasons.
