  1. Yes we’ve been able to legally use a ball since sometime in June/early July. It was in an email that went out to the ADs. Football was even specifically mentioned on how you could use a ball.
  2. Has Mason Co been doing activities since early/mid June? Teams have been able to use a ball since near the end of June. My point is it’s not like they just starting football activities and a Covid case popped up. If they have been operating like a lot of the state they’ve been doing activities for almost two months. I have no idea what the article says but with one player testing positive it sounds like they are shutting stuff down just to be safe. The player could of went on a trip and come back. Then tested positive and since he was at practice they shut it down even though no other player had contracted it.
  3. I saw this someplace else but other than that source I haven’t seen it mentioned. Did the KHSAA put a limit of 60 players that can dress? Like I said I haven’t seen anything on this other than from a post on another sports forum.
  4. In the Scott Co/Great Crossing case it wasn’t done to avoid fall break. Scott Co takes their bye week 11. I think Great Crossing is around week 9. I believe Scott Co is playing a district game that week. That whole arrangement could be sorted out some how do big deal or it could get messy. I don’t know if I would be surprised either way.
  5. For some teams JV could be a big risk for extra exposure for the virus to spread between teams. JV plays and then practices against/with the varsity. A JV player become infected from playing a JV game and now spreads it to the varsity program. Some teams won’t want to run that risk and others can’t afford to run that risk.
  6. Then you’ll also have a few schools that will have to do something because they play their district games earlier than most.
  7. Are there any 6 team districts? There are 5 and a lot of 4 but I don’t think there are any 6 team districts. So under that model teams would play 3-4 district games. Somewhere in those weeks 6-11 a lot of teams have a bye also. Restricting play to almost exclusively district play is going to be really rough on some programs.
  8. Well schools would have to start before a season would. If schools weren’t starting until mid September or even early October the comparison might be a little different. Also not all schools at this moment are starting NTI. It’s a complex set of factors for sure.
  9. I’ve heard rumors that we will get two more weeks of the current state. After that practice will start and weeks 1-3 will be eliminated so teams will play weeks 4-11 with a full playoffs. I have no clue how true that is or where those people got their information. The meeting is tomorrow at 10 so by this time tomorrow we’ll have an idea.
  10. Nebraska is going full go right now. They even had a state all star game in the past two weeks or so.
  11. I’ll have to track down the memo/statement. So winter sports get shortened and spring sports get pushed back some with fall sports playing between. As far as lacrosse goes I believe it’s more of a pocket sport where it is played/popular in just a few areas here in KY.
  12. Washington DC has decide to move football to the spring. This appears to be a growing trend with football being moved to around February.
  13. The face shields haven’t been extensively tested yet. If any of you have any experience with players wearing visors you know how much of a pain they are. The amount of heat and condensation that gets trapped in there is ridiculous. To outfit everyone with gloves and shields would take easily at least 1200.00. That is a big hit for a number of programs.
  14. SC currently is going with schools starting September 8. FOOTBALL - Practice starts on Aug 17, games can start on Sept 11. 7 game schedule with region/conference games prioritized first for play off seedings. Teams that play in region/conferences of less than 8 teams, game could be picked up at the end of the season. 16 teams per classification qualify and 4 game play off, ending completed season on Nov 20 (2 weeks earlier than normal).NO scrimmages or jamborees.
  15. Virginia it appears has canceled fall sports. I’m editing my post because I jumped the gun a little. They will vote on July 27 on the following is my understanding. MODEL 1Leave sports in their current seasons, but only golf and cross country would be allowed to start in the fall because they fall into the lower to moderate contact category.As high-risk sports, field hockey, football, volleyball and cheerleading would not play.MODEL 2Switch the fall and spring seasons, which means the following low and moderate sports would be allowed to compete in the fall: track and field, tennis, soccer, baseball and softball. Fall sports would be scheduled for the spring.The high risk-sports, boys and girls lacrosse, would not be allowed to play. MODEL 3All sports would remain in the season in which they are currently aligned, but a condensed interscholastic schedule would be adopted as follows:Season 1 (Winter sports) would run Dec. 14-Feb. 20. The first contest would be Dec. 28.Season 2 (Fall sports) would run Feb. 15-May 1 with the first contest starting March 1.Season 3 (Spring sports) would run April 12-June 26 with the first contest starting April 26.
  16. We do start and practice longer than most states. Alaska and us are the only two that start as early as we do. I’m all for a later start. There are a number of states that get 3-4 weeks to get ready for the season. Now football isn’t the only one that can go almost year round. Due to the nature of the sport there are restrictions that other sports don’t have. We are also lucky here that select 7 on 7 isn’t as much of a thing as it is in other states.
  17. NJ has pushed back the beginning of their season. I didn’t go into what the NJ model was in detail and I probably should have to avoid any confusion some might have. Yes KY does typically have the first game close to opening of school. We also start our season earlier than many states. NJ isn’t allowing full go practice until some time in September. It works out where they get an eight game season.
  18. We might end up following the NJ model. They are waiting until after school starts to begin the season. That way football doesn’t set back the start of school and they have a little time to see if school will have an effect on the season. There are a few states that have either started full go or will by next week.
  19. This is a legit question. Wasn’t it suggested going back to March to wear a mask? I see the difference between suggestion and mandate. I feel like I’ve been wearing a mask going back to March or so. Maybe it was a suggestion which is different than our current state. Even now though you have people that will refuse to wear a mask for a highly contagious respiratory disease. The current state might be an example of two steps forward three steps back. We made progress and then got reckless/laxxed so we are where we are. Maybe if it was a mandate from the beginning things would of been better. People after all of this and the stress/hardships that this has created have become less likely to comply. There is a whole other issue of the ripple affect of noncompliance which is probably better for another thread.
  20. Part of that is true but that wasn’t the case when they first started. Nor are they the only profession or even hobby that requires/best practice to wear some form of mask. I get the point about hand sanitizer and there has been an over use of that product for a very long time. This thread I feel has kind of veered off course. If an individual doesn’t want to wear a mask but wants HS football or even HS sports/school in general I have to ask. What is that individual doing to help football/sports/school return? Following the requests to take measures that would help lower the risk of transmission is not hard. There are hundreds of things we have all experienced in one fashion or form that is hard. This stuff ain’t hard.
  21. If wearing a mask weakens your immune system then maybe talk to a doctor, dentist or any number of other professions that wear masks on a daily basis on how they keep their immune system up and running.
  22. Some people won’t wear masks and some will. Obviously people will disagree with my point of view here but if you want schools and sports wear a mask. Don’t say you want or we need those things and refuse to do things that are or could be part of the solution. There are some that will choose either side (to wear or not to wear) that have no skin in the game. If you do have skin in the game then it makes sense to do anything possible to make progress no matter how small of an impact that step might make. There is a massive list of things that people do that is more discomforting, invasive, or detrimental due to personnel choice, social norms or laws than wearing a mask. How many people who refuse to wear masks and other measures have issue with players that appear in their eyes to act better than the team or bigger than the game? How many people love the coach that talks about getting his team better a little each day or not worrying about the other team and concentrate on what the team can control yet refuse to wear a mask or other measures? JT and many others have said it here and in other states. If you want sports. If you want to enjoy them as a fan, parent or player then do everything in your power to make those things happen. Currently that’s doing as much of the suggested measures as possible.
