Thread: What percent right now would you give to a 2020 college football season?

    There was never any reason to think that the tentative plan wasn't going to be to have football season even if some university systems and conferences don't participate.

    I fully expect the plan will be to start Labor-Day weekend as usual with a contingency plan to hold only conference games. I doubt we'll have a late start to the season because that will probably just throw things out of whack with bowls and neutral site venues and TV schedules and such.

    We probably won't hear about what restrictions the NCAA will put on attendance until August. Just too early for that right now.

    Ohio State has a contingency plan for 20% attendance so that same % for GS would put us around 5000 attending. Maybe 1000 students, 4000 fans? If that were to be the case, some season ticket holders would be on the outside looking in. It could get interesting.

    You don’t make it all or nothing. Prioritize the games and then sort them out by priority points. Yes, there are some people who should get every game. But for the most part you split the games up between renewed season ticket holders. But no renewed season ticket holder should be shut out.

    The obvious statement is that actually putting this all together is going to be incredibly tough.

    At this point though I think the only thing that stops almost full or completely full stadiums in the fall is a setback. One that was vastly predicted by the naysayers but hasn’t shown up yet.

    Priority points?

    You kids crack me up.

    Y'all act like this thing has somehow just died out. It's burning through Latin America like crazy right now.

    You guys really think the school (or any school) will expose itself to the kind of liability in-person attendance would mean?

    Boy, People really don't understand our tort system.

    Not sure of the exact number but 4K season ticket holders is about 67% of our season ticket base. So that also would mean no walk up sales at all. No buddy system ticket sales for students.

    Serious Tort question, could you slap a warning in big font on the tickets along these lines: " Warning, attending this game could expose you to Coronavirus, sickness, even death." Similar to Surgeon General's warning on cigarettes to help limit liability?

    Absolutely.

    Just review what Universal and Disney are doing before you enter

    They have good lawyers.

    Could you get sued?
    Sure, but the burden of proof shifts more on the individual

    AND you would have to prove without a reasonable doubt that you contracted the virus from this location and there was no exposure to ANY other vectors

    don’t think that would be easy
    somebody will do it though in hopes to get insurances to settle out of court

    +1000, no way anyone gets away with that BS. If your going to be afraid of catching the virus, stay the heck home, if you go don’t put it on GS if you get the flu. Then of course try to prove it.

    Nope.

    Doesn’t work that way.

    That’s in effect admitting that you knowingly exposed people to danger.

    Folks have lost all their assets in civil suits stemming from “beware of dog “ signs. In effect, that’s a de facto admission that you harbor an animal you suspect is a potential danger. (I don't think it matters whether the attack is on your property, behind the sign or not. The danger is what's pertinent.)

    Similar situation to to owning a swimming pool. You can put signs everywhere, flashing lights, sirens, etc. etc..... The second someone drowns in your pool, you will lose your ***. Insurance companies LOVE pools. They wll charge you crazy rates for years, but the policies are so full of exclusions, they know they will never pay.

    (The only reason Disney is doing this is they have deeeeep pockets. They are essentially self-insuring. They know their will be suits, so they budget for it. Those guys are swimming in money. We are not. Doesn’t matter how good anyone’s lawyers are. No disclaimer is gonna shied any facility from covid judgements.)
