Georgia Governor* Brian Kemp announced that spring football training could begin immediately, under several conditions designed to protect players and staff from Covid-19.

1. Teams will play with 6 players.
2. Players will line up with at least 6 feet between them, and must maintain that distance.
3. Blocking will be indicated by the blocker putting up both his hands in front of another player. The player blocked must stop immediately.
4. Tackles will be indicated in the manner used by fencers, with electronic touch points, activated by a device carried by each defensive player.
5. Balls must be wiped down after each play.
6. If any player falls to the ground, play will stop until the surface is disinfected.
7. Officials will remain within a sidelines booth.

Go Dawgs.

Nothing really, except for using up a bunch of test kits that might be better used somewhere else. Of course, somebody who just got the virus yesterday could infect several people in close quarters before their testing today. But I do think if they can come up with a workable realistic way to keep the players contained and still have a life, it would be good.

true.

I don't have the knowledge or expertise to call foul on test production, but I'm still having a problem understanding why we haven't already produced a hundred million or so tests.

Why isn't every company, capable of making the tests, doing so?

Is greed or a patent involved or is it too complicated?

Or is our overall lackadaisical response continuing to reverberate incompetence?

In Pensacola we have one hospital requiring appointments over a week out, requiring subjects come inside the hospital and taking 7 to 10 days for results

and another hospital that does all testing and check-in while you stay in your car and provides results in 24 to 48 hours.

Our response requires brains and the media to expose examples like the above.

We took over factories during WWII for essential production, I don’t understand why the same isn't being done now

okay - it's trump

but then why isn't the media clamoring for a hundred million tests?

From the link

"he wasn't always an Auburn person. He was born Nov. 6, 1939, in Blythe, Georgia. He played college football at the University of Georgia, one of Auburn's oldest and most hated rivals. His first coaching job was as an assistant in charge of linebackers at Alabama, on Bear Bryant's staff, where he was from 1965-73. The Crimson Tide defeated the Tigers six times in those nine seasons and won two national championships.

Dye left Tuscaloosa to become the head coach at East Carolina, a job he held from 1974-79. He spent the 1980 season as the head coach at Wyoming, which coincided with Barfield's last season at Auburn. The Tigers went 5-6."

"But some things are more important than football. That's why Malzahn, wife Kristi, many of his assistant coaches and a host of players — at least more than half the roster — attended the Black Lives Matter protest that took place Sunday evening in downtown Auburn."


"Among the other Auburn athletics representatives in attendance were athletics director Allen Greene and his family; men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl and his staff (including director of basketball operations Chad Prewett and daughter Madison Prewett," "and baseball coach Butch Thompson."

DeAndre Hopkins doesn't name Clemson in player intros because of slavery advocate associated with school

As nationwide protests demand a shift in American race relations, DeAndre Hopkins and Deshaun Watson are using the moment to call for change at their former college.

They used their platforms to advocate for the removal of a slave supporter’s name at an honors building at Clemson on Monday. They tweeted a petition started by Clemson student Roann Abdeladl demanding the removal of former U.S. Vice President John C. Calhoun’s name from the school’s Calhoun Honors College.

Calhoun’s push for slavery in U.S. government

Calhoun served as the seventh vice president of the United States from 1825-32 and also represented South Carolina in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. He was a slave owner and staunch advocate of slavery.

“Slavery is indispensable to a republican government,” Calhoun is quoted as saying....

Why Hopkins doesn’t acknowledge Clemson

Hopkins also linked to the petition on his Instagram page while explaining that the school’s continued use of Calhoun’s name is the reason he doesn’t acknowledge Clemson during pregame introductions on NFL broadcasts. Instead, Hopkins names Daniel High School, his South Carolina alma mater.
“As we watch everything happening in the world, I want to bring up something that has been bothering me for a long time in my community,” Hopkins wrote. “Clemson University still honors the name of well known slave owner and pro-slavery politician John C. Calhoun on its buildings, signs and in the name of its honors program. I felt this oppressive figure during my time at Clemson and purposely do not mention the University’s name before NFL games because of it.”
Hopkins played three seasons at Clemson from 2010-12 before the Houston Texans selected him in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft.
Rename the Calhoun Honors College at Clemson University (petition)

Thanks.
... “Any insinuation that I was trying to mock the Black Lives Matter movement is just an attack on my character and really sad,” Swinney said. “I also will say that I wholeheartedly support Black Lives Matter. In fact, I don’t quite think that’s adequate enough. I think black lives significantly and equally matter. To me, Black Lives Matter is just like, ‘Hey we matter, too.’ I think black lives significantly and equally matter.” ...
I applaud his elaboration, but still think that it is really clueless of him to be wearing the shirt now. He should have burned it in the video.

I have no opinion on the other things he addressed, but it's probably good that he's addressing them.
