    Define ” no longer safe”. I’m being serious. I would like to know what people consider “safe”.

    Any reasonable committee that has a modicum of concern for the athletes would make me say yes. Knowing the track record of this group, it will have to be a no.

    Other than Dr. Brown, from back tot he future, coming in and giving some bad news from the future, he would be the only Dr that can stop at least part of the season.

    Hell, yeah. A doctor with 15 positive test results walks into an AD ‘s office and its done. Not because he has the authority, but because he has results.

    Talk to your doctor but always get a second opinion.

    Doctors can’t even manage to consistently keep NFL players off of the field who should be in concussion protocol. You think that the money people are actually going to shut down the season on the say-so of a doctor? Hardly.

    The University of Georgia has the third-highest incidence of COVID cases of any major college campus in the country. Athens Regional is currently out of ICU beds. If you ask any doctor in the Clarke County region, s/he is going to tell you that you can’t play football right now. The Bulldogs will be practicing this week. There’s your answer.

    I don’t understand. ‘Safe’ is a subjective risk assessment, not an objective standard. No doctor can or should tell you what’s safe, their role is to convey the objective information to allow you to assess your own risk. It’s almost like they would rather shunt the decision making responsibility to someone else…

    If how the baseball season has gone so far is any indication, then no, it isn’t safe to play a college football season.

    They will take all information, and then ask “Can I defend my institution in a court of law?”
