    Smart and Moncken should throw Jamie's shit out in the street and set it on fire, just in case there's any COVID on it.

    It sounds pretty far fetched. There would need to be multiple steps a respiratory virus would need to go through and survive for this to be a plausible route of transmission.

    ETA:

    There is very little evidence (one report) and a lot of looking for the corona virus in feces. There are reports of viral RNA in sewage, but finding that is not the same as finding infectious complete virus. The Corona virus needs the complete package of RNA and proteins (most notably the spike proteins) to be capable of infecting someone.

    Urine as produced in the kidneys is sterile. It can become non-sterile later (e.g. bladder infections). Urine has not been identified as carrying virus out of the body.

    MIT provides a different answer. Scientists there looked at the issue as part of school reopening.

    MIT study

    The most likely route of transmission in a restroom is the cough or sneeze deposition on hard surfaces. Corona virus is known to survive hours on such surfaces. The simple solution is do what you have been told since you were a kid. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after you use the toilet.

    Probably the best evidence arguing against this theory is that healthcare workers, despite working long hours in facilities housing thousands of people (and presumably using public bathrooms), have the same rate of covid as the general population.

    PK: Nick Sciba, Wake Forest

    Sciba isn't automatic, but he's about as close as it gets. He made an NCAA-record 34 field goals in a row before missing a 48-yarder last season against Syracuse. He ended last season 24-of-25 on field goal attempts, and for his career, is 7-of-8 between 40 and 49 yards. The Clover, South Carolina, product heads into his junior season having made 43 of 47 field goal attempts and has yet to miss a PAT in 97 attempts.

    Was BYU that good last night or Navy just that bad? From what little I saw I'd say the latter.

    Both. BYU is pretty good, and Navy is down. BYU is an a strange spot as an independent, and the only team playing college football in the western half of the US (outside of Texas/OK). Because so many of the teams on BYU's schedule cancelled their season, BYU has only 8 games scheduled, and they will be favored in all of them. The only likely competitive games BYU has left are at Army (and BYU just played an option team which will help) and at Houston with crazy Dana Holgerson as coach. Pretty good chance BYU goes 8-0. Given that two of the three Power conferences are playing expanded their conference schedules and given that all 3 conferences will play championship games, there is a decent chance that BYU will be the only undefeated team at the end of the season, but the Cougars would be 8-0 and their best win would probably be at Houston. So, there may be some clamor about BYI making the CFP, but don't see that happening with their JV schedule.

    Navy opted not to tackle in practices and only practiced with tackling dummies, which sounds like a a stupid joke insult but is the truth.

    That's not uncommon nowadays.

    Not many teams go into Navy and beat them up like that, BYU was impressive, but as stated above, they don't play anybody. If they manhandle Army like they did Navy then I think it shows BYU is pretty darn good and won't have a chance to prove it against anybody really noteworthy.

    The UAB v. Miami game is tomorrow (Thursday) night. FWIW, it would've made more sense to play the game today, rather going head to head with Texans v. Chiefs NFL opener.

    You're right (obviously). This short week has me all messed up.

    OOOOOOOOOPPPPPSSSSS !!!!!!

    Central Catholic, Stephens' high school in Pittsburgh, initially believed he died from COVID-19 complications, though it stated Wednesday it "mistakenly attributed his death without official confirmation on cause," per Brad Everett of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
    Isn't the truth about COVID and the death of a young man bad enough without having to make things up ?
