    Uncertainty likely benefits the local school - so on balance, this probably helps USC for the tail-end of the 2021 class and with a jump on 2022. Hard to imagine recruits and families getting comfortable committing to places they may not have been able to visit yet.

    Man this sucks for those hidden gem seniors who haven’t been recruited hard and needed that senior year tape to get a shot.

    This virus should’ve been suppressed and under control by now, but our government did such a botch job in handling this thing it looks like it’ll be a while before we return back to “normal”.

    The government? You don’t think it’s on the people who didn’t social distance, wear masks & self isolate? It’s not government, it’s on unsafe, arrogant individuals....

    Who do you think is passing it onto people in nursing homes? The government?

    Looks like baseball playoffs will be 2 weeks at the end of June which means it will be contested in the spring. This article has all the information. Important to note that there are 10 sections in CIF and each one will announce their specific dates of participation.

    https://scorebooklive.com/california/breaking-cif-postpones-fall-sports-moves-california-high-school-sports-season-to-december-2020/

    One of the questions I have is since several sports will have playoffs and championships at the end of June and most schools are already dismissed, will seniors be allowed to participate?

    And frankly, how many student athletes overall want to be competing and playing that late into the semester when they have final exams, senior activities, and for juniors, AP exams.

    I agree with that. The world shouldn’t stop. However, keeping your distance and wearing a mask to help prevent any droplets being transferred to another person or prevent breathing in a droplet is just plain wise....

    "The government? You don’t think it’s on the people who didn’t social distance, wear masks & self isolate? It’s not government, it’s on unsafe, arrogant individuals...."

    Our collective incredulous stupidity, reigns supreme dear friends. I've confronted dozens upon dozens of people with "please wear a mask, it serves no purpose just sitting on your neck" most respond by putting it on, others see it as an attack.
    Four different times I've approached POLICE MEN about not wearing masks nor bothering to space as they were shooting the breeze; their collective response was to insult my intelligence. What if you take Corona to your elderly parents? I said to the most defensive ones. How can you honestly force us commoners to respect this law when you are laughing at it.
    The groups I confronted consisted of 7, 6, 2, and 8, one of the violators demanded to see my license, I stood my ground and told him TRUTH was my license. They came to their senses and let me go about my business.

    So yes! we are our own worst enemies, specially in my community(south central LA), IT'S BAD!

    Twice you said you confronted people. One shouldn't then be surprised that some considered it an attack.

    I assume you also go to bars and ask people for their keys if they appear to be drunk and look like they might drive home?

    Or maybe you should consider confronting single men about not wearing condoms when they have sex. Doesn't do much good if it stays in a pocket.

    Frankly I don't respond well when "confronted" by any stranger.

    CIF is cow towing to Newsom ideology. I am a HS CIFBB Umpire and the spring season was shut down fast......... flat out cancelled! After all the families paid there fees etc. with no refunds or forward application to 2021 season.

    Big Bummer for all HS Football seniors to showcase this fall what they can do. CIF is 100% following the politics of Dems.

    No. But it doesn’t significantly hurt it either. SC already has 18 commits and a good idea of who it would like to add to complete the class. The group of people this absolutely hurts are those guys right on the border of getting offers, where college coaches were going to make a decision on an offer after the first few games or half a season.

    USC is probably okay not offering any of those guys, but in a perfect world, you absolutely want those guys. Just because a guy is good enough as a sophomore to get an offer doesn’t guarantee he’ll be a better college player than the guy good enough to get an offer as a senior. You want as much information as possible as a coach going through the recruiting process and USC’s staff won’t be able to do that now.

    That's exactly it. One side of the aisle has become engrossed in incomparable ignorance and stupidity. It is the side of the aisle most represented on football sites like this. The stupidity is allowed to thrive because there is never any threat of a result. This time there was guaranteed to be a result, and therefore the stupid side was exposed, in the same direction it would always be exposed, upon series of results.

    This should not have been complicated at all. There is value in the extremes. When it hasn't happened in a full century that is the utter definition of an extreme. Therefore every projection is going to be too low, and so forth. It is the classic example of big picture focus totally destroying obsession with details. Notice the stupid side was desperately scrambling for one deflective detail after another.

    The stupidity is a revolving door. Now that certain aspects are shutting down again the people who caused it are the ones whining about it.

    Thank you for sharing your strong understanding of humanity with us. Perhaps just maybe the end result from this virus will be better unity/understanding among all of us. PERHAPS!

    So, you are ok with nearly 13 million deaths in the US? (Multiplies the current death rate of 3.6% in US by 359mil people). As long as it’s not you, I guess

    Where's your source for the 3.6% death rate? Most sources have it at something less than the flu, perhaps 0.25%.

    Given that 50% of deaths are in senior homes, most of the rest are in the Northeast...and I believe there are only 2.1M total in senior homes currently, so you'll have a hard time getting to 13M. Statistics wasn't your major, was it?

    We also know that folks under the age of, say, 50, have almost no chance of dying from this. Was that included in your modeling?

    "Researchers, initially analyzing data from outbreaks on cruise ships and more recently from surveys of thousands of people in virus hot spots, have now conducted dozens of studies to calculate the infection fatality rate of Covid-19.

    That research—examining deaths out of the total number of infections, which includes unreported cases—suggests that Covid-19 kills from around 0.3% to 1.5% of people infected. Most studies put the rate between 0.5% and 1.0%, meaning that for every 1,000 people who get infected, from five to 10 would die on average."


    Oh, and the US population as of last December was just a bit over 330M. At some point, over several years, the cumulative total of deaths could end up there but it's not happening this year and it's not happening in 2 years. A vaccine and basic immunity, plus continued focus on basic sanitary procedures will make that number an impossibility.

    My guess is that it's even lower, given that the vast majority of cases are not reported and don't show serious symptoms.

    It's also a lot harder to get tested without having symptoms, so the reported mortality numbers are clearly overstated. Dem governors have killed off the low-hanging fruit in senior homes, so recent cases skew younger--and less deadly.

    Anybody worried about players transferring out of state and being recruited elsewhere. Like Garcia to Miami hype from a few weeks back?
