I did my own research from what the CDC has given us:.4% of the US population has contracted COVID-19.The death rate of 30-39 age group accounts for .2% of all deaths from COVID-19.The next age group

This whole shenanigans about locking down the country had nothing to do with “health”.  It had everything to do with saving face since we are one of the world leaders in medical research and treatment

I don't think over 40,000 deaths in less than 2 months could be labeled as "stupidity"  but that's another conversation.  Almost every country in the world has had some form of lockdown....so we aren'

A friend of mine is high level military and told me that Texas and this part of the U.S. will reach its peak infection rate from early June to mid July. I didn't ask how that was arrived at but it sure looks like (if true) that we may have an abbreviated and delayed regular season for at least the UIL. It'll be cutting it too close for August drills, etc. Envision two scrimmages, no non-district, and just the district slate of games. Add to all the uncertainty the potential for another wave of COVID in November or December and that might throw a wrench into the state playoffs. Not being negative but trying to be as factual as I can based on the information I got.

Question ? If the Professional’s sports play before empty stadiums, what do you think  the UIL and TEA will do concerning the fall sports ? 

we wont play in empty stadiums...  that would be wasting money.  Literally throwing away money.

Show up if you would like or stay at home if that's what you choose. Let the fan(s) decide what they feel is right.

First, thank God I'm not a male impersonator like Rachel Madcow. Secondly, I provided what was reported to me because someone in the military, at least to me, is about as credible as you can get.  Yes, if Texas sees a huge spike in cases you bet it will affect fall UIL sports.  Bank on it. I personally think sports need to resume as soon as possible, but public health needs to be considered too. A personal insult hurled at me was uncalled for.

Get ‘em to sign a waiver?

An "Enter at your own risk" sign at all entrances should cover that lawsuit.

Eagle, what if a player or two on the team test positive ?  Will that team have to quarantine their players ? Lots of what ifs.

Should but wouldn’t. The world we live in is soft.

There’s no doubt Abbott knows the importance of HS Football in Texas.   Since we’re currently in an “open up” process of stages, if it goes well I think there’ll be a good chance of opening schools.   And if schools are open, I can see no reason why you couldn’t have HS Sports.   There’s as much contact in the halls of most schools when the bell rings, as there is on any football field.   Also, studies (Stanford & USC) have shown that there’s a lot more people who have antibodies (were asymtomatic & didn’t know they had it) than anyone realized.  Based on that, a large portion of our population may be immuned.

I know many of you will disagree, and that’s okay.  Maybe I’m just being overly optimistic.   Maybe I’m just tired of gloom & doom.

Some of yall need to redirect your opinions.  It is about the health of not only the kids, but the health of the parents.  Sorry, I only read a couple of posts, didn't want to read the bs that went along with some of it.  Don't speak unless you have been in contact with the virus.  Throw the mike.

Who are you to say that? Do you know how the immune system works? Did you realize people over 50 are the ones most at risk ? Do you expect quality of life to be great staying at home? Do you go to Walmart/Kroger or any higher populated area? Don’t let this be worse than the virus. Take precautions  and live life. Stop watching CNN.

They are called opinions for a reason. This is a message board where everyone posts their opinions. The majority of posts are made up of opinions. Just in case you forgot, the definition of opinion is a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. So, you can go back and pick up the mic and hand it to the next person because your opinion was not a mic drop opinion and for sure did not justify a mic throw!

These so called experts have been wrong at every turn so far!!!! Human history is full of disease, and we have to face this to beat it. Hiding in our houses prolongs the amount of time it will take us to move past it. What started out as 15 days to slow the spread to allow for medical facilities to not be overwhelmed has turned into trying to stop a virus completely which will not be done!! Make no mistake every bit of this is political has very little to do with your health!!!

I have some stats in the political forum that I looked up and turned into percentages...  let me go find them so we can see them here...  I will also add in the % of kids too since we are in the HS forum...
