The virus is very real if you are already in bad health.  For everyone else the virus is much less dangerous than the seasonal flu.  The response is a HOAX!  The logical response would have been to do everything possible to protect the vulnerable (especially nursing homes).  Everything else is just political hyperbole.  

This is America. EVERYTHING is political hyperbole.

We could easily buy more time if needed to.  Who says football MUST be finished before Christmas? College and NFL play through the first of the year.  We could too for this season. Start in

Who cares?  Those are the only games that count anyway.

I imagine people at powerhouses care. The preseason has been responsible for many of Carthage's state titles.

That's possible. But you'd think that the UIL as the governing body for extracurriculars in Texas would be on top of that. A group of people with advanced degrees can't figure that out?

Key word “government body “ says volumes. You know.dont wanna offend a 1%group..js

People actually think that the cdc is non political? Hello the WHO, you know the world governing body thats bought and paid for by china?  Get your heads out of the sand. Money is money and truth aint profitable.

I just don't understand the decision. I want to see football as much as anyone (I will seriously be unbearable to be around this Fall if we don't have it, lol), but what is the justification behind allowing 1A-4A to play, and not 5&6A? Are kids at 1-4A schools immune?

The amount of kids at school and people at games is the biggest difference

It’s probably more geared to the Dallas and Houston areas but I get your point.

I'm thinking a lot of the 1A-4A schools are in smaller counties that aren't hit as hard vs a lot of the 6A/5A schools are in larger metro areas.

I agree though, I don't understand it myself.

Crowds are being limited to capacity at any large event. The same can be done at a HS football game. 

 

Besides, 'smaller' schools can draw large crowds as well. Kilgore stadium, for example, holds 8K people.

Okay now hold a stadium at 50% that holds 10,000 and a stadium that holds 40,000... Its a big difference

What high school in Texas has a 40,000 seat stadium? lol

The most, I would imagine, most schools are going to be allowed to host is 50% capacity. And even that, across most stadiums in Texas, would be a 6000 fan max. Allen or Plano or Permian might reach 8 or 9,000 with 50% but that's rare until playoff time.

Allen holds 18,000 and its not the biggest in texas look it up.... When i said 40,000 i was just using it as an example.... But most 3a schools hold an avg of 3,000

@Lobo97Have they pushed all schools starting back to    September 8th or is that just certain districts? No games until the 24th sounds like only district games to be played.

Only 5A and 6A are starting their seasons on the weekend of the 24th-26th.

4A and down start at same times.

5A and 6A's season has been pushed back entirely with state title games taking place in January.

That’s why they call me Stoney. No reading comprehension and it was my post. 😂

Well, Kilgore played the first 3 games against 5A...so, it will be interesting to see what they do to fill those...Maybe get Carthage back on..???

Do we know if the 5A & 6A schedules will be reduced so that all playoffs/state championships are still held at the same time or is it their plan to have them start later thus not having as many teams in one location for state game(s).... maybe they split the state games up to different locations this year (if Jerry will allow it).... ???

It appears the small-school regional semi finals will be during week 10 of the big school regular season... So we may see a lot of small school coin flip for home/home since the bigger schools will be using their own stadiums

Spent 33 yrs in education and 17 as a HFC. This is the craziest thing I’ve ever heard. We can’t start school in the building but we can work out all summer and start practice in two weeks. The UIL and TEA need to try talking to each other so the message is the same. Nothing about this says “best interest of the kids”. Guess that is just a tag line in cases where everything is going good.
