2021 Fall Camp and Other Tidbits

    Because you want to inject politics/culture wars views into the football forums?

    Fair point. So I edited the post. But the fact remains that failure to convince people to get the vaccine has led to a resurgence in key college football territory and could put the 2021 season in jeopardy.

    A huge portion of that resurgence is Florida
    Florida has a higher rate of vaccination than Ohio

    What's driving the Florida resurgence is the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale lifestyle. Many of those people are immigrants. They elected Debbie Wasserman Schultz to congress. Many of them would call your concern about them spreading the virus racist.

    I wouldn't. But maybe you should take it up with them.

    I don't know what our pusillanimous society will do, but since those at risk have been vaccinated by now, and since everyone who wants the vaccine can get it, I say keep it open and if the virus sorts it out, so be it.

    Considering how few young people died from this though, and that young people are by far the biggest part of the resurgence in Florida, I wouldn't expect much of an effect from the resurgence either way.

    I won't agree or disagree with your statements on FL, at the sake of derailing a sports thread. But I do fully agree that we should let the boys play and let the virus sort itself out. I don't think any of us want to see another clusterF like 2020. Yeah, it was cool that we still made the NC and bludgeoned Clemson. But I'd rather not another game where our entire position group is decimated(i.e. MSU) or having to worry about Covid19 in conjunction to having to worry about injuries.

    The program announced Wednesday that Olave will be replaced by tight end Jeremy Ruckert as one of the representatives. A school spokesperson said there was “no issue” with Olave.

    "We're going to start Aug. 3," he informed. "And we're going to have two days of helmets, a couple days of shells, take Sunday off and come back with shells. The rules this year allow us to have nine (practices) in pads, nine in shells and then seven helmet practices. That's a little bit different. So we just had to kind of put that together. I think the big stretch for us is going to be those two weeks from I think it's Aug. 9 to like the 21st. Those are two real big weeks for us."

    Certain contact drills, such as the Oklahoma Drill, are also no longer allowed during fall camp. Contact practices cannot be longer than 75 minutes beginning this preseason and teams cannot have back-to-back days of full-contact practices.

    "I think we're okay," Day said when asked how he feels about the rule changes for fall camp. "I just think that, at this point, it doesn't really matter, but I think the padded practices and the shell practices, to me, what's the difference between putting on your helmet, shoulder pads and then having your pads on the lower extremities? It's just safer. So I think it would make a little bit more sense if we had 18 in pads and then seven in helmets. But it is what it is and then we'll make it work."
