I've been having this argument on twitter with one of the clemson sports radio host here in south carolina for over a month now. They posted this and were like, if they could do this in 1918 we can do it now, and we have medical advances. My reply was a simple one and they never responded... 675,000 americans died in the 1918 flu pandemic. what are we advocating for? go ahead and play, wear the mask and we'll just live with many more dead?

Yeah they only played 7 games that year.... 5 against actual college football teams. Started in October. And the 2nd wave hit in October/November/December and was worse than the first wave.
