What are you thoughts.....athletes can't be kept in a bubble.
It'll help but of course the vaccine doesn't stop you from contracting the virus it only minimizes the effects substantially. Good idea
Seasons are going to happen no matter what. Schools and leagues are just going to push through regardless of how many cases and postponements. We’ve seen it in all sports so far. The only thing that might force the NCAA to re-evaluate things are deaths. Until people start dying, the games will go on.
McClelland said at SWAC Media Day that he anticipates there will be stoppages in play during the season ... but the league likely won't pause unless it becomes really problematic to play. The conference has already not been able to play 25 (men and women) conference basketball games so far and still pushing through.I think after we got through the fall without any deaths in FBS football, it's gonna be full steam ahead until people die
The SWAC did the right thing to postpone the fall season and see where things would be in the Spring. Now that it appears that everyone else in all the other sports are gonna push through this, no need for any more delays from the SWAC either. Not saying that it's the smartest move but at this point we just have to pray and hope for the best.
IDK if you can force an entire program (coaching staff, stadium and facility workers, gameday personnel etc...) to undergo testing and subsequent vaccines to make playing worth it. The government can't force you to take the vaccine unless under certain circumstances so I doubt a private entity, even one as controlling as the NCAA, can do much better.What are you thoughts.....athletes can't be kept in a bubble.
Athletes will not get pushed to the head of the line just so they can play.
the south african strain may lower the effectiveness of the vaccine but the tech is there to quickly modify. moderna is already working on a booster.Well the vaccine will be useless if they get the new strain.... So it’s a mute point.
Man that sucks for her, but I understand trying to get your wind back after COVID is no jokeAnd then there are athletes like Asia Durr who don't know whether they'll be able to play again after contracting COVID
