After one week of classes, UNC-Chapel Hill shutting down campus and going to all virtual classes. Students living on campus being told to find other housing (go home). expect UNC to cancel football in the next week or so - even if the ACC decides to keep going.

700 WLW was just railing on UNC for that decision as well, since no one has died, it's just a huge overreaction. Nothing surprises me anymore.

If there's any reason to be ticked off, is that UNC just ran the greatest ponzi scheme ever. Open the school, collect tuition and board, shut it down, and good luck getting a refund. I am not shocked at all by that happening and knew those idiots would attempt a maneuver like that. Any school open at this point is out to collect a damn check and I wouldn't send my kid to school for that reason.....

Yes, Covid has somewhat of an impact, but if they're insulated at a rural school, I'd be telling them you're down there for the semester, no coming home. Want to figure out how to operate in the world, here's your chance. Don't be stupid. Be dumb, but don't be stupid. (If you get the difference between dumb and stupid then you understand that statement)

Residence hall cancellation requests with no penalty are being honored. Also if a kid has a hardship (no internet, international students, etc.) they are being allowed to stay.

Why such an adversarial perspective toward your kid? "Figure it out?" If residence halls were completely closed, you'd want them to find an apartment with two days' notice and who knows how much money in their pocket, in the middle of a pandemic? Would off-campus landlords even rent to a freshman or sophomore? Back in my day at OU hardly any juniors/seniors lived on-campus, so I assume most of them had off-campus housing already.

Clearly the university's assumption is that early undergrads will just go home. I'm not sure your attitude would work.

My bad that I didn't finish that statement. Was simply saying as long as school continues, stay down there. Was saying no weekend trips home like most of us did back in the day if we were local enough if we wanted to get home. Was saying it that if the semester was going full-bore, no excuse to come home until that extreme scenario happened. Wasn't being that big of a prick to my own kid (even though he/she one day will be known as my favorite tax deduction til they're 26)

Story on the news this morning about U Conn. kicking several students out of their dorms for a packed dorm room party, with no masks of S.D.

I had posted a couple of weeks ago about a doctor saying that yelling,punishing,etc. won't work on young adults.
He said its in their "make-up" to socialize,and they don't feel they can do
that with masks and S.D..

He was back on the radio this morning saying the on going house parties in N.J. and what happened at U Conn. just reinforces his position.

Drove through uptown last evening to a local shop to pick something up. The sheer volume of students in town, on the streets and doing what they do is not going to work out very well for this area. Over the weekend, 3 bars were charged, and parties everywhere. And move-in weekend is not until next week.

Anyone who expects 18- to 22-year-olds to act responsibly when they're on their own is a fool. Just look at all the 30-, 40- and 50-year-olds (a supposedly more mature crowd) who've been at crowded bars, pool parties and beaches without masks or social distancing since May. At least college kids have the excuse that their brains haven't completely come together physically.

Or the residue from liquor pitchers and recreational activities are still clouding their judgments......

Like the guy I talked to Monday - who, while not wearing a mask, complained about the college kids coming back to our town and having parties and all. I asked where his mask was - said he had the right not to wear one. I asked about the kids rights - he said they were just being stupid and that he would never go to a bar.

I guess only a little stupid doesn't count.

I was in Athens yesterday afternoon. Maybe half the students outside on campus were wearing masks and social distancing was practically nonexistent among groups.

B10 now looking at a January start using domed stadiums (Detroit, Indy and Minneapolis among them). Also considering a Thanksgiving start to the season. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29759687...

The MAC could consider using domed stadiums to get a February start to the schedule, depending on B10's scheduling. Detroit, Indy, St. Louis and even Syracuse might be usable. They could do three or four games each weekend at each site until the weather warms up.

There's an article in today's The Record that says the B1G is now looking at starting Thanksgiving weekend,with at least 8 games.

The article says the advances in rapid tests are why its possible.

The article says there's concerns that elite players won't play a Spring schedule because of the draft.

After averaging 1.1 cases per day in the whole county for the last 21 days, we had 5 reported yesterday. This is how it started back in the first full week of July. Hopefully yesterday was a blip.

Thankfully, whether elite players play or not, everybody involved will have gotten their degree and learned important lessons about teamwork and hard work, which is what college athletics is all about.

821 new cases of covid at the University of Georgia today. That's only 288 fewer than the entire state of Ohio reported today.

30 out of 40 Greek houses at Indiana are quarantined. Frats and sororities at IU have an 8.1% positivity rate; residence halls are at 1.63%.

"Sebastianelli said that cardiac MRI scans revealed that approximately a third of Big Ten athletes who tested positive for COVID-19 appeared to have myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle that can be fatal if left unchecked."

I wish I could find the link to post about researchers who have put the genetic COVID19 into a supercomputer and run the numbers about its effect on human tissue. The virus apparently is using very tricky was to get around the human body and then lodging in different areas where the body then reacts, often with fatal results (such as lungs getting filled with mucus and other body fluids). It is one nasty virus and researchers are still getting a grasp on its intricacies. This heart inflammation could potentially impact an athletes future, even if they recover.
