    And where would you draft Jamie Newman based off 14 games worth of film and two big wins against NC State ? Newman could be a late first rounder or second rounder with a good season and film against 3 or 4 top ten opponents next year instead of his embarrassment against Clemson. He'd be a question mark if he just went into the draft without playing football 18 months.

    It will be intersting to see what happens with scholarship limits and eligibility if they don't have a football season.

    Paul Finebaum was fairly pessimistic this morning. He says that the "there will be football" public statements are being contradicted privately by some of the same folks. He's also hearing that other unnamed teams are experiencing double digit cases of COVID.

    Positive cases alone won't stop college football.

    College Football will plow ahead despite the positive cases, until there is player(s) who has a major adverse reaction and requires hospitalization or worse. When/if that happens, the momentum to play probably stops. Until that happens, many people will bank on the position that the COVID threat is not as strong for young/healthy people. While that is generally true, all it will take is one or two serious cases, and then colleges start getting bad publicity, liability is threatened, and the Presidents will shut it down. The same scenario may also play out for all of the colleges that are planning to have students return to campus. A student lands in the ICU, and then campuses will get shut down.

    So in any given week, you may have anywhere between like 5-20 players in quarantine (total speculation but I am going to guess you're going to have a non-zero number), on top of football-related injuries. That will make for some thin rosters and good luck with redshirting.

    NC State @ Louisville game has been moved from Thursday September 3 to Wednesday September 2 to lessen the conflict between the football game and Kentucky Derby Weekend which has events from September 3 through 5. This game is the opener for both teams.

    True, that.

    Do we need to stockpile Duke's in case it becomes a hot item among non-Southerners after the bowl?

    A buddy of mine is a lawyer with a big firm in Columbia SC. One of the lawyers is on the board of trustees at USC. He said the SEC recently met with their team of doctors and they predicted 5-10 players would be in danger of dying from Covid if games were played this fall so don’t expect any games in 2020. Could be a bunch of BS but I tend to believe with all the continued outbreaks in the south and nothing being done on a federal level, there will not be any games until possibly spring of 2021.
