Spring football practice has been canceled across the country. Now, the question is how much longer it will reshape the college football season.

Should consider playing games with NO fans present - just a tv crew and referees !

I'm sure that's on the table as a possibility. And given the amount of the TV contracts involved, that will definitely be something they look at seriously if this is still a serious situation in the fall.

As someone living in Hong Kong/China li can say life/sports/OSU football will return to.”normal” most quickly if everyone stays at home and physically/socially Isolates now. After 2 months of a very strict lockdown China is now very cautiously starting to relax and get society and the economy functioning again.

Shutting down and starting up a large company, bureaucracy, county, state, nation are large-scale, time-phased, iterative, many player, many skill problems.

colleges, the gaming industry, and think-tanks are 3 industries of several that could be modeling this dynamic large scale problem as we speak. Are they?

...and all the while, while the erstwhile strong are suddenly weaker... will not The Adversary redouble their efforts from within and without to... do 'more' of what they've been doing? The pontifications from experts as to when the adversary 'started' - november, january, 3 years ago... serve only to illustrate our abject unwillingness to recognize when this all started.... its predatory nature... and "totally inappropriate unfairness"...

in the problem-solving process, one starts with identifying the problem. In a complex problem with many unknowns and barriers to effective communication, 'the problem' is more like a strawman at first. Then, before gathering information, many 'experts' brainstorm criteria and assumptions as part of 'factors bearing on the problem.

we, however... are rather fond of leaping to conclusions, if not outright judgments.

"If i only had a brain" sings the Strawman. He was 'so sincere' he did not even recognize what he already 'had', and so he was had... by himself.

As George Carlin reminded us, think of the person you know “of average intelligence”. Then realize, that by using that phrase, that by definition, 50% of the people in this country are dumber than that.

Enter the comment section of this site (or hang around Politics Twitter) and you will get some pretty good proof of that.

What a lot of folks don't understand is that all children, with a few rare exceptions, are born with strong immunity systems. Immunity doesn't start waning until mid-20's. That's why this virus affects more elderly than the young. I was surprised tournament was canceled and would be even more surprised if football season was delayed. That's why these young guys deserve to continue playing. As a safeguard, either cancel spectator attendance or verify their health before admission. Just check the health of the referees, essential staff, etc. but try to keep business as usual.

Mr. Hollis, I suggested it as a safeguard to protect those who are living in fear rather than faith for pure health. I would prefer to see Ohio Stadium filled to the brink every home game. Only suggested no fans for health concerns for the welfare of the community
