    Without a vaccine in place it's hard for me to imagine college sports resume this fall or spring of 2021. It just isn't safe.

    I think it more dependent upon an effective treatment than a vaccine. If an effective remedy is developed, the mortality factor is greatly lessened and isolation is not required for most people.

    Also, it appears that the timeline for treatments, particularly if the treatment is based on already approved drug or set of drugs, is more likely to be far ahead of a timeline for an approved and mass-produced vaccine.

    Per the majo on this thread, maybe the smart move is to let Manning's contract lapse another year before buying him out? Haven't been following the conversation at all - is that part of the calculus?

    It feels like an almost inevitable outcome. The problem though is that if we don't have the money now, we probably won't have it next year either after a year of severely reduced income to the athletic department and burnoff of only one more year of guaranteed salary. Of course if the stock market responds bigly, maybe our big donors will be able to scrape together the cash without feeling like they're spending their last dime to buyout a shitty basketball coach at a school they haven't attended for 40 years.

    I think itís unlikely an effective treatment will be developed. We just are not very good at treating viral diseases.

    If a 9 game schedule is played, it makes it more likely to have controversy about who makes the BCS playoff as that means 3 fewer games to sort out the top 4, particularly in the non-Power V conferences. Good chance that 2 or 3 unbeatens would emerge from those conference if no OOC games are played. If Boise, UCF and App all go unbeaten, do one or more of those teams get in the playoff if there are two or less unbeatens in the Power conferences?

    Would be interested to see what happens if ND plays 9 ACC games next year. Would they qualify for the ACCCG if they had the best or second best overall record?

    this is why we need antibody testing- if you already had it, you get your bracelet or certificate and you're all clear to do whatever you want. Bracelets/certificates get checked at the gate as you present your ticket. No bracelet/certificate, no entry.
