    All the athletic programs (and universities) are in uncharted territory, undoubtedly under significant pressure. When its all over, I expect there will be many examples of decisions made that seem foolish in hindsight.

    Covid cases in Houston are spiking. They are going to run out of hospital beds. They may have to go back into lockdown and open a field hospital at a football complex.

    "And while the number of people hospitalized with the virus has climbed, state officials and local hospital leaders have expressed confidence in their capacities. The state is reporting a total of 1,502 available beds in intensive care units and 5,814 available ventilators. There are more than 14,000 available hospital beds across Texas, according to state figures.

    The Texas Medical Center in Harris County, for instance, reported on its website Thursday that it has 207 COVID-19 patients in the ICU. It rated that number — less than 15% of its base capacity and less than 8% of its surge capacity, though that doesn't take into account people in the hospital for other reasons — as “no concern.” At the Harris Health System, which includes the Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital and Ben Taub Hospital, a spokesperson said this week there has been a slight uptick in cases, but they are mostly “holding steady” for now."
