The Big Boy Football teams are more isolated than you think ..1) 5% for a football team is close the doors time. That is wickedly high! The 5% threshold mentioned elsewhere is about the amount of testing in an area for a given population.
2) Do we know what they are testing at?
That is a month old and could be out of date.
The EPL finished up their season mercifully and Liverpool won the title. The EPL ran 14 rounds of tests. The first week had 8 positives. The third week 4. The last 11 weeks, 8 positives total, or 0.04% positive (roughly 125 times less than 5%).
So that is what is possible, IF the nation involved is taking the Covid-19 issue seriously (at the moment). The EPL was able to do it. Here is the difference.
Since the EPL restarted on June 17:
UK - 41,000 news cases (621 cases per million people)
The State of Texas - 400,000 new cases (13,793 cases per million)
It worked in the EPL because the cases in the nation weren't as bad.
And that leads us to the next issue. The NHL, isolated. NBA... except for getting wings at a strip club, isolated. These are college students... some that are actually trying to graduate college. They aren't isolated.
Clemson had a bunch of positives very early, latest I heard they had 1.
Ohio State and TTUN are Very low.
