    China the origin of the virus is at 94% recovery, NFL is releasing their schedule next week for a full season. Regular flu had 100k deaths the last two years. Through herd immunity and virus mutating into various strands were most are not lethal. I think there is a high likelihood for high school football. Kets pray and hope

    #8: South Korea population 50 million 255 covid deaths. US Population 350 million give or take. 7 times greater than S. Korea’s population. Based on that model we should have 7×255 =1785 deaths. We have 74,000 and going up. Still think we are going to have high school in August much less football? South Korea despite great rates still playing it safe while we are opening up tattoo parlors and beaches. When are we going to get realistic about this? Football is a fantasy for now or else we have lost all perspective for life.. Sorry Peterson.
    From T. Peterson: Why are you saying sorry to me? I’m not the one who decides if there’s going to be a high school football season or not. Nor do I make the schedule.
